Client Thank You Gift Boxes: How To Do Them Right

There are few better ways to show your appreciation to a client than by sending them a gift.

Whether you’re recognising the years of custom that they’ve given you, or are celebrating the end of a major project – a well-thought-out corporate gift can work wonders in further developing the relationship with your clients.

Whilst some businesses may feel that sending a simple email or letter will suffice, they’re missing the big picture:

  • In Knack’s Business Gifting Satisfaction Survey, 57% of survey respondents said that ‘gifts can impact their opinion of a business partner both positively and negatively’. This shows how important gift-giving can be to a business relationship, and why you shouldn’t sleep on them!
  • Furthermore, those who do give corporate gifts to thank their clients are rewarded with better ongoing business relationships. In a survey from 2021 by GiftNow, 43% of respondents stated that improved relationships with clients were the main advantages of sending thank you gifts.
  • Whilst it can be difficult to measure this quantitatively, research from Datumize has shown that 70% of purchase experiences are based on how valued the customer feels. Sending thank you gifts to clients is just one way to keep your relationship healthy and beneficial for both parties.

What are client thank you gifts?

  • A client thank you gift is just one way to show appreciation to a business partner or customer.
  • The scale of the gift that you send your client will depend on the occasion and the nature of your relationship.
  • For example, if you’re sending out a large number of gifts to thank multiple clients at one time, you may wish to keep your gifts simple for the sake of ease.
  • If, however, you’re only sending to a handful of individuals then you may be able to put some more thought into your gifts and provide a bit more personalisation.
  • Client thank you gifts can include anything from a simple card, all the way up to elaborate custom corporate gift boxes, complete with bespoke promotional merchandise.
  • Whilst many companies allocate resources to welcome gifts for new employees, work anniversary gifts, or business anniversary gifts, the ball can be dropped when thank you gifts for clients are concerned.

Why should you send your clients thank you gifts?

  • Bring your organisations closer together. Sending out thank you gifts to your clients is a great way of forging stronger links between your organisations. They’re a simple way of reaching out physically, without requiring you to actually meet in person. This is ideal for those dealing with businesses spread out across the country or the rest of the world.
  • Celebrate your success. Put the cherry on top of a completed project by sending out a gift that celebrates your successes whilst working together. This is an excellent way of communicating that your clients’ achievements are a cause of celebration for you. A simple gift to commemorate a job well done can also be a great way to remind them of your contribution to the task.
  • Lay the groundwork for future projects. If you’re early in your relationship with a client, then a thank you gift can be a thoughtful sweetener to lay the foundations for more work in the future. This can also help you to stand out from their other business partners and leave a good taste in their mouths moving forward into the next phase of your relationship.
  • Keep your business top of mind. Whether you’ve just completed a project, or are celebrating an organisation’s anniversary, a thank you gift is a perfect way to remain at the top of your client’s mind. The right gift, given at the right time can help ensure you’re considered for upcoming projects where you otherwise might have been forgotten.
  • Humanise your organisation. Modern businesses can sometimes work together for years without ever meeting in person. Sending a thank you gift to a client can help humanise your business relationship, making you more than just a disembodied voice on the end of a phone or email thread.

Client Thank You Gifts FAQs

What can I send a client for a thank you?

What thank you gift you choose to send your client will depend on the nature of your relationship, the reason for saying thanks, and the level of investment that they’ve had in your business.

For example, if you’re choosing to celebrate the completion of a recent project which has come as a result of a client referral, you may wish to send a token of your gratitude to the client. This could be as simple as a bottle of wine with a branded corkscrew.

How much should I spend on a client gift?

The amount of money that you choose to spend on your client gift will depend on the nature of your business relationship and the reason for sending the gift. For example, you may wish to be particularly generous when buying gifts for clients who have recently spent a relatively large amount of money with you.

Why is gifting clients important?

Sending gifts to clients is a great way to touch base with them and reinforce the positive business relationship that you’ve helped establish so far. Whether you’re celebrating a recently minted project or are marking a particular milestone in your relationship – a gift can go a long way in cementing positive sentiment which can lead to an even brighter future together.

How much can you write off for client gifts?

In the UK, HMRC allows any one business to obtain a tax deduction on a single business gift per tax year of a value up to the cost of £50. No tax deduction is permitted if the gift includes food, drink, tobacco, or a voucher that is exchanged for goods.
