We love nothing more than working with other businesses, large or small, and helping them take care of their clients the way we take care of ours! Client gifting is a great way to show your clients that you are appreciative of their decision to work with you, and we are here to help you every step of the way, from design to delivery! Whether the occasion is holiday gifting, specific event gifting, or even a "just because" gift, showing your clients how much you care about them is always a good idea. We hope you might be able to use the following breakdown of some of our favorite client appreciation projects from 2021 below as inspiration for your own client gifts!
Family Pasta Night Gifts for Reis Nichols
After a difficult year, Reis Nichols wanted to express their gratitude to clients with a gift that an entire family could enjoy together at home. We immediately dreamed up a gift box full of items needed to make a homemade pasta night. We sourced items in line with a soft and neutral aesthetic, and even included handmade wooden spoons and hand-thrown ceramic spoon rests for keepsakes. Other items included gourmet pasta, truffle salt, olive oil with dipping spices, and a kitchen hand towel, of course!
S'Mores Themed Gifts for Baldwin Risk Partners
With a request for an experiential gift, we designed these very special S'mores Night gifts for Baldwin Risk Partners! Items included a mini bonfire, a custom s'mores ingredients kit, the most darling marshmallow skewer, cocoa mix, fairisle socks, and gourmet s'mores popcorn. These gifts were highly thematic and perfect for a special twist on traditional corporate client gifting around the holidays!
Tropical Check-In Gifts BEMI Properties
When property managers asked us to create these luxurious Florida-inspired check-in gifts for their rental guests, we envisioned all things tropical luxury! With a balance between food/beverage items and useful fun-in-the-sun items (think sunscreen, a quick-dry towel and am embroidered beach hat), these gifts were the perfect way to welcome visitors and set the tone for a high-end and relaxing beach vacation.
'Cheers To You' Gifts for JMI Equity
With a celebratory "cheers to you" theme, these gifts for JMI Equity included everything necessary for a toast of appreciation! Champagne, an icicle bottle chiller, etched bottle stopper, and custom etched glass flutes served as keepsake items, while flavored champagne cocktail cubes, champagne truffles, and salted cashews gave recipients something to snack on as well. Essentially, a celebration in a box!
Local Small Business Gifts for Clark Construction
When Clark Construction asked us to curate a holiday gift made with items exclusively sourced from small businesses local to the DMV area, we were thrilled! Intentionally sourcing from other small businesses is something we love to do whenever possible to help spread the wealth. Plus, recipients are receiving a gift that is meaningful, unique to their area, and filled with items from businesses they wouldn't receive anywhere else!
Home Comfort Gifts for Chandler Rose Photography
We worked with photographer Chandler Rose to design these special gifts to give upon each client booking. Handmade terracotta mugs with coordinating small-batch coffee, a luxe soy candle with custom branded matches, and a cozy throw blanket gave these gift the perfect 'natural home comforts' vibe to ensure clients felt secure and appreciated in their decision to book.
'We're Better Together' Themed Gifts for GRS Tech
Working with GRS Tech, our team created these fun "we're better together" themed gifts to send a message of appreciation to their clients! Filled with the essentials for an at-home toast, these gifts contained items such as custom etched champagne flutes, sweet and savory happy hour snacks, embossed wood coasters, and a luxe soy candle in a gender-neutral scent. Don't forget the touch of softness on the exterior of each gift in the form of a handwoven black and white throw blanket!
Branded Client Appreciation Gifts for Followup Boss
For an end of the year surprise, we worked with Followup Boss to create these very special branded client appreciation gifts. Including a mixture of branded keepsake items like leather journals and Yeti tumblers and indulgent snacks like custom cookies, small-batch coffee and kettle corn, these gifts were the perfect balance between something for now and something for later. The best part was definitely the oversized tassel throw blanket held on top of each gift with satin ribbon and banded gift tags!
While we have thoroughly enjoyed working with each of these companies to create beautiful and unique gifts to shower their clients in appreciation, and we would love the opportunity to work together to create something beautiful for you and your top clients as well!
