The holidays are a great time to show your customers and clients you appreciate them.
However, coming up with the perfect gift, ideas may be a little challenging. So, If you’re tired of sending cookie bouquets or cholates every December, here are some other creative holiday gifts that won’t bust your budget.

Many companies give back with every purchase. This is a great way to give a gift that keeps on giving. Companies like Love Your Melon donate 50% of their profit to charity as well as strives to provide a hat to every child in America battling cancer.
Give them the gift of time
Who wouldn’t want more hours in the day? Give your clients the gift of time by giving them a gift card to a local cleaning or maid service. Companies like Molly Maid may ask a few questions about the client’s house before setting a price.
Try to get as much information from your client as possible to make sure they don’t foot the leftover bill for the services provided.
Send a thank-you note
This gift is not only inexpensive, but it’s incredibly personal. Gone are the days of receiving handwritten letters. Take the time to write a genuine thank you to each of your clients and customers. You never know how much it will mean to them.
Working hard throughout the day increases everyone’s appetite. Why not give your clients some healthy fuel to increase their energy and imagination? Companies like Graze will send an assortment of delicious snacks your clients will love.
Supply a membership
Everyone likes feeling a part of something, especially an exclusive club or organization. Unlike the fondue kit that sits on a shelf and collects dust, your clients will be compelled to use the membership.
Everything from local gym memberships to museums memberships can be a hit. Do a little research and determine the best membership for your customer. Make it personalized and something they will genuinely love.
Tip: Subscription boxes make great gifts for valued clients and employees.
Send something from your city
