10 Thanksgiving Client Gift Ideas

thanksgiving gift ideasTis the season for giving! Instead of giving in December, consider giving Thanksgiving gifts in November. Life is a little less chaotic, and giving gifts now will free up your December season a little more. Each of these gifts pair well with our Thanksgiving cards. You can view designs and download Thanksgiving Order Forms Here

Office Gifts

  1. Pie Package. Start with a large pie (I recommend buying one from Costco). Get decorated plates, napkins and forks, and a can of whipped cream. Tie it all up in a fun package and attach a card. Deliver to the client’s office so they can enjoy a festive afternoon treat.
  2. Stress Relief Items. Bring the office a basket of fun stress relievers like stress balls, desktop zen garden, silly putty and relaxing tea.
  3. Giant Fortune Cookie. This has been one of the most popular gifts we’ve given c lients. It’s a one pound fortune cookie, decorated with frosting and sprinkles, with a custom message inside.
  4. Food Truck Lunch. Rent a food truck and send it over to give lunch (or dessert) to your client’s office for the day.
  5. Desktop Games. Lets be honest, no one really needs another mouse pad or pen holder. But desktop corn hole, foosball, basket ball and golf putters are really fun and make thoughtful gifts for vendors and client offices. Buy 3-4 for their break room and you’ll be a hit!

Individual Gifts and Pop-bys

  1. Bottle of Wine. Buy a bottle of wine or sparkling cider. Add some ribbon and a tag to the top (we can design and print custom tags for you!) Deliver to client’s home or office. If you want to get a little fancy, put the wine in a basket with some cheese and crackers.
  2. Soup in a Jar. Sweets are plentiful during the holidays so give your clients something a little different. Soup in a Jar includes all the dry ingredients for soup, and the recipient just adds water or broth. There are tons of recipes online, or you can purchase through a site like Etsy.
  3. Kitchen Hostess Bundle. For the clients who loves to host holiday parties, create a little hostess bundle. Include a wooden spoon, spatula, and tea towel wrapped up in a ribbon. There are many tutorials online for personalizing or decorating wooden utensils if you want to add a personal touch.
  4. Small Potted Plant. A small cactus or succulent would be perfect. Include a note that says “Thanks for helping my business grow.” One Step Services can design and print the tags for you.
  5. Custom Calendar. Our favorites are this one from despair.com  You pick the photos and you can put in custom dates

The difference between a 5 star rating and a handwritten thank you note

I tried a new auto mechanic this week. The auto shop I had gone to for years switched ownership and I wasn’t thrilled with the new management. Plus, I needed a shop closer to work. So I tried one of the many near the office and one highly recommended by my boss.

When I walked into the Finishline front office, I was immediately struck by the framed thank you notes hung on the walls. Many of these notes were handwritten. It was incredible to me that people had actually taken the time to handwrite a note to their mechanic. I’ve written online reviews for my mechanic, but a handwritten note? That beast of a task is reserved for friends and family. As I started to read the testimonials, it became clear that John, the owner, wasn’t just a mechanic. He was a friend, a friend people trusted with one of their most important worldly possessions.

I was feeling pretty good about my decision to come to Finishline. John gave a me a detailed quote before starting the work. He charged a fair price. He got the job done quickly. He was kind, respectful, and friendly.  

Everything John did was worthy of a 5 Star Yelp Review. But I still wasn’t understanding the handwritten thank you notes. But at the end of the transaction, John handed me the keys and mentioned that he had noticed that one of the tires on the stroller in the back of the car was flat, and he filled it up. I couldn’t believe he had even noticed the flat tire, much less taken the time to refill it. Talk about going above and beyond. Right there, he earned a lifelong customer and a handwritten thank you note.

Service is the most important part of your brand. Make sure it’s excellent!
