Best Business Gifts to Give Your Client for the Holiday Season


The holiday season is the perfect time to show clients your appreciation and nothing says “we value your business” more than a gift. The right gift can set the tone for the rest of a relationship and keep your business top of mind all year long, so to help you put your best foot forward, we’ve compiled a list of the best business gifts you can give your clients this holiday season.

1. Gift cards


Cost: $

Effort: Low

Gift cards are one of the most commonly sent and most commonly requested gifts and for good reason. They let your clients know that you’re thinking of them while giving them the flexibility to get exactly what they want. No guesswork involved. 

Keep things on the cheaper side and buy your client a cup of coffee with a Starbucks gift card or go big and treat them to a nice night out with a Hilton hotels gift card. Even better, get your clients a gift card they can redeem at your business. No matter what gift card you choose to send, your clients are sure to appreciate the gesture.

2. Charitable donation

Effort: Low

Just onboarded a new client and not sure what they’d like? Don’t stress — a charitable donation is a great way to instill goodwill with any client, new or old. Not only that, but it’s the perfect opportunity to demonstrate your business’s commitment to a specific cause or the community in general. 

Ask your client what their favorite charity is, or if you’re unsure, make a donation to popular charities like World Wildlife Organization or St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in their name.

3. Branded swag example

Cost: $

Effort: Low

45% of millennials like to share corporate gifts they receive on social media, twice as many as boomers, according to this Knack Shops survey. So if you’re clientele happens to land within that age range, consider sending out gifts with your brand’s name or logo. You might just get some free advertising out of it. 

Check out sites like and Printfection to get your company’s name on everything from t-shirts, sweaters, and bags, to notebooks, pens, and even portable chargers. Or show off your gift-giving skills using Caroo or The Care Crate and create a customizable care package that lets your client know it was made with just them in mind.

4. Starter subscription

A starter subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. Unlike many other traditional gifts, a subscription is something that your client will likely use multiple times. For a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months down the line, your client will have a regular reminder of your company’s generosity and thoughtfulness, helping keep your business at the front of their mind. This is one gift that’s sure to make a lasting impression.
