The holiday season is upon us and the year is coming to an end in a few short weeks. With the hustle and bustle that comes with this season, its nice to take the time to thank the people who have had an impact on your business throughout the year.
One of the best ways to thank key players in your organization is to send a thoughtful and useful promotional gift. By sending a promotional gift these key players will always remember how you took the time to think of them during this busy time. Some key players to thank are customers, employees and vendors.
It is important to thank customers because it not only shows appreciation, it shows their business is valued. Letting your customer know you value their business gains their loyalty and encourages them to recommend your product or service to others.
A great gift to give to your customers would be a simple gift set that expresses your gratitude for continuing to to business with you. Some examples of gift sets are a Relaxation Kit, Wine Set, or a Hot Cocoa Set.
Bigger customers (customers who spend more with your company) should receive a more upscale and higher end product like a Leather Briefcase, an Executive Desk Clock or a Digital Photo Frame.
Giving employees a token to thank them for their hard work throughout the year shows you appreciate the time they put in day in and day out. This also demonstrates the way you value their efforts and in turn will boost office morale.
Try giving employees a gift they can place on their desk. This is so they can look at it every day they are at work and feel appreciated. A Travel Mug, Clock/Photo Frame or a Calculator with Erasable Memo Pad.
Vendors also help organizations throughout the year by making sure the organization receives the products they need on time and in good condition. Even when situations arise that are less than perfect, vendors are always there to fix mistakes and get you what you need. Thanking vendors for being there helps improve and maintain relationships, and encourages a partnership attitude.
Gift baskets are great for vendors because they can share the gift with the whole team. Chocolate Gift Baskets, Fruit Baskets, and Gourmet Baskets are perfect examples.
Sending a promotional gift is a great way to say “thank you” to customers, employees and vendors. Thanking the key players is a rewarding experience because you will be able to show your appreciation and give them a sense of belonging in your company. The end result? You will stay in their minds for a long time to come.
