Corporate Thank You Gift Ideas: Show Your Appreciation

Holding strong and successful corporate relations is key for longevity in business, whether that’s by strengthening existing relations or building new ones.

Showing your appreciation is a great way to keep clients happy, and there’s no better way to do it than by sending gifts to say thank you. Whether it’s to mark a milestone working together, or celebrate a successful campaign, sending gifts shows that you value your relationship and plan to continue to work together for years to come.

Find out more on how thank you gifts can help improve your business relations, and discover our top ideas for thank you gifts.

When is the best time to send thank you gifts to corporate relations?

There is never a bad time to show appreciation for the work they have completed but some great opportunities to send them are:

  • Reaching milestones. When you hit the one-year, two-year or five-year mark it’s great to celebrate your anniversaries with your clients.
  • Celebrating successful campaigns. If you’ve collaborated on a campaign and it’s paid off for all parties, a thank you gift can show your appreciation for your clients’ hard work and encourage them to work with you again!
  • Appealing to prospects. You don’t have to just send gifts to existing clients. If you are hosting a corporate or networking event, giving like-minded professionals thank you gifts can give you a favourable look and attract potential leads.

Can sending thank you gifts help improve corporate relations?

Letting your customers or clientele know that you value their loyalty can help retain business and provide longevity with corporate relations. 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.

In addition, research from Datumize has shown that 70% of purchase experiences are based on how valued the customer feels. This suggests that showing tokens of appreciation by sending a gift can change how a customer feels about you as a business, and encourage them to purchase from you again.

Who should you send a corporate thank you gift to?

A successful business involves a collective contribution from all kinds of people, both internally and externally to the business. This means that it’s important that you show appreciation to everyone who has helped your business reach its short or long term goals. 

You can send a gift to the people internal to the business, who work hard every day to ensure that your business strives for success. These can include your front of house working staff, such as your shop workers or sales agents, as well as staff who work behind the scenes to ensure that everything is performing as it should be. Similarly, you can show appreciation to your partners or suppliers who are integral to the operational success of the business. 

Retaining customers is important to a sustainable flow of revenue, especially for small businesses with minimum exposure. Sending a thank you gift to customers can be seen as only a small token of appreciation, but can leave them feeling satisfied and encourage them to return to you.

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.
