What kind of Gift should you Give? A Gift of Appreciation...

Deciding on what to give your Clients, employees, friends or family to say thank you can be a tough task.  For businesses, you want your clients and employees to remember you and show them how much you appreciate their business and hard work.  But will that Frisbee with your logo on it do the trick?  Probably not.  Or how about the extra large men's polo shirt for your petite sales consultant?  I think it's safe to say she won't being the dance of joy if she received that either!  It's not about how much you spend or how much a Client spends with your company that should determine what you should give.  Hopefully, through the relationships you've built with your Clients and employees over the years, you'll know what their interests are and what they would appreciate.  It's a great idea from a business standpoint to give a gift with your logo on it but just make sure it's something the recipient will enjoy.  By knowing what they'll appreciate, you can show them how much they are appreciated.  Read more about this at The Art of Giving.  Happy giving!
