While the bosses hand out tons of Christmas bonuses and lovely gifts, you don’t want to forget about your corporate clients. After all, they’re part of the reason why you’re in business. However, with all of the craziness that’s happening during the holidays, it’s easy to forget about your clients. You never want your gesture to appear rushed and thoughtless. Instead, consider these awesome ways you can wish your corporate clients well during the holidays.
1. Send over a gift.
Make sure you know the mailing address for your corporate clients. If you send the gift directly to their office, you can choose an option they can share with the other employees in their vicinity. There are tons of unique corporate gift baskets you can consider. Sweet treats are always a hit with most corporate clients. Additionally, if you choose to send a gift that’s personalized, consider an option that’s engraved. A watch, a pair of slippers or a monogrammed baseball cap can be a few great options to consider.
2. Treat the clients to dinner.
You can try two different options. You can choose to cater the dinner and host it in-house. You can also opt to just host the dinner at an actual restaurant. Find a restaurant that offers a private section for private parties. This gesture is a nice way to allow the clients to enjoy a meal and togetherness outside of official work. This is also an opportunity for you to get to know your clients in an informal atmosphere.
Impressing clients during the holidays is one thing. It’s another to genuinely express appreciation for their business over the past year. Make sure the latter is clear. When your efforts seem contrived and staged, it comes off as inauthentic. When your heart is genuine, it’ll come across. Let go of the pressure of work for a bit. This is an opportunity to become personable. You can still be personable and professional at the same time. Out of all the places a person can be during the holidays, they wouldn’t want to be a stuffy party filled with fake people. Be genuine. When you do this, you’ll be able to authentically wish your clients well during the busy holiday season.
