After an intense negotiation, you are finally close to getting deal with an important client that could potentially change the trajectory of your career and rocket you towards the top of your organization. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to give your client a perfect gift to close the deal, one that send the message, “Thank you!! I really appreciate your business and love working with you.” So here are a few great gift ideas that you can use.
Gift baskets make for excellent holiday gift ideas because you can personalize them for each client. They also give you a chance to showcase your company’s products. You can include a cute thank you note as well and make your client feel happy about doing business with you.
Digital Photo Frame
A digital photo frame is a great gift to give family and friends and can be an ideal gift for a client as well. A digital photo frame is really quite inexpensive, but is still a very classy gift to give. It can be personalized to your client’s taste and be used all through the year.
Kiva Gift Cards
A good touch would be giving your client a Kiva gift card. Kiva is a peer-to-peer non-profit lending site which connects people on the internet with a goal to alleviate poverty in underdeveloped countries. It is a unique charity that works by using crowdfunding. A Kiva gift card allows your client to choose the recipient of the cash included in it. Once the loan is paid off, your client is free to keep the money and use it to lend to another poor person.
Handicrafts to close a deal
Handicrafts always make the best gifts to give to clients because each of them is unique and made with great attention to detail. You can present beautiful handmade gifts made by a talented local artist or buy something really special on sites such as Etsy.com. There are so many things you can think of. If your client is a woman, then you can gift her specially designed trinkets, for example.
A Ticket to a Local Sporting Event
One great idea to close a deal is to gift your client a ticket to a local soccer game or basketball game, especially if you find out from your interactions with them that they love sports. Or, if they are not all that keen on sports, you can gift them a pair for tickets for an opera or an art-house cinema.
Bluetooth Mini Speakers
A Bluetooth Mini Speaker makes for a perfect gift. It is small, inexpensive and yet quite useful. Your client can play their favorite music on it and will appreciate the gift especially when they are travelling.
Coffee sets have been traditionally recommended as gifts to clients or business associates. Other options you can choose are thermos sets and supplies to make hot coffee, tea or cocoa. These make for great gifts and will be highly appreciated.
One terrific gift idea is to present your client a Netflix subscription for the whole year. This is such a thoughtful gift and will be really appreciated. If Netflix is not available in your client’s country, you can gift them a Hulu or Amazon Instant Video subscription to close a deal. All of these are excellent options to have. Your client will keep you in mind when watching the latest episodes of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
