Where did Summer go? We are less than two months away from ringing in a new year. Are you moving your business forward into 2014 with a BANG or a whisper?
Holiday gifts are one of the best ways to thank customers, reward employees, and get a head start on building new client relationships. A small token or a one-of-a-kind treat will help set you up for a successful 2014.
Who should you give gifts to?
When shopping for the holidays, you should consider the following groups or individuals to give holiday gifts to: clients, prospects, sub-contractors, employees, vendors who go out of their way to help you be successful, and colleagues who have helped you prosper. Gifts do not have to be large or expensive; they can range from a personal holiday card to a bountiful gift basket filled with delicious treats.
Things to Consider
- Be practical; give something useful or inspirational.
- Check to see if there are special rules or limitations on the type of gifts that you can send to clients. For example, many large companies are not allowed to accept gifts over $25 or more.
- Quality is important. A large, pretty gift basket with bad tasting food will not impress your customers.
- Review IRS regulations on gift giving.
- Know the group or individual that is receiving the gift; a hi-tech iPhone charger does not work well for Android users.
