By March 23, 2021 One Comment

Client & Customer Appreciation Gifts

Customers and clients make the business world go round.

Whether you’re part of a small business or a large corporation, every customer interaction is critically important.

In fact, 73% of companies with better than average customer experience outperform their competitors financially.

The goal is to always leave your customers with warm feelings towards your company. Businesses spend billions of dollars on customer satisfaction for good reason.

“There is only one boss — the customer. And they can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down simply by spending their money somewhere else.” — Sam Walton

By putting in the extra effort, your company will strengthen client and customer relationships, which will boost referral rates and retention.

There are several ways to express care and gratitude. For instance, a handwritten note is still effective even in the digital era, but a client appreciation gift is the ultimate way to say “thanks for trusting us with your business.”

So check out our list of the 44 customer and client appreciation gifts for 2021!

 

What Are The Benefits of Client & Customer Appreciation Gifts?

There are a number of benefits to sending a customer or a client an appreciation gift. Some of these benefits will be noticed immediately, while others may be over the long-term. A well-suited appreciation gift can have an immediate impact on a customer or client when they first open it by showing that you value their business and the future you look forward to having with them.

The right gift, whether used one time or for many years, will continue to pay dividends for your company by strengthening your connection to your client and building up a positive working relationship that recognizes the hard work that both sides put in.

When taking into consideration what type of appreciation gift to send them, it is important to recognize the different aspects of this process. Ask yourself if this gift is hitting on some or all of the topics below:

  • Memorable — people forget events, but they never forget how you make them feel and appreciation gifts are sure to leave a positive feeling.
  • Unique — it’s important that the gifts are unique, so they aren’t redundant.
  • Useful — your clients and customers will love these gifts even more if they make their daily lives better.
  • Quality — the higher quality gifts are more durable and show greater appreciation.
  • Fun — ideally, client appreciation gifts are fun and useful, but sometimes the fun gifts are the hands-down, absolute best when it comes to leaving a smile on your customers’ and clients’ faces.
