Our Christmas gifts guide for clients contains a range of unique ideas, perfect for business partners and staff to show your appreciation.
Finding the perfect gift for those in your professional life is a great tool to build relationships. From staff gifts that build morale in the team, or to your customers or clients – these can represent the value you have with your career.
The downside, of course, is that picking the right Christmas present for your clients can bring on a case of the Christmas-induced stress. Remember: it's the thought that counts. They'll be pleased you sent anything at all; any bonus points for something particularly clever or creative are just that – bonus points.
Just pick 'em something easy from this list – more corporate, go with a basket, more hipster-start-up-turned-profitable, go for the record player – and sit back and chill till Christmas. You deserve it, dammit.

Food and wine hampers
Large companies that you work with can always make the most of hampers. They're a tried and true favourite and can be used during Christmas celebrations, shared between its staff or raffled off for charity to the staff for a charity donation. Determine how large the team is and purchase accordingly. Here are a few choice picks:
Another tried and true favourite is a bottle of something special. This could be Champagne or well-aged bottle Scotch Whiskey. Best for small teams or for an individual client you'd like to thank.
If food hampers don't really scream your client, a luxe hamper just might. Think luxe beauty products or a beautifully arranged herb or flower hamper that can be displayed around the office and give it a bit of Christmas cheer.
A statement piece
Want to make that client remember you? Get them a statement piece they can work into their office decor. Feel free to go all-out here with wall paintings, rugs, record players or, for a lightly safer though no less practical gift, a new coffee machine.

How to pick the best Christmas gift ideas for clients
Choosing the wrong corporate Christmas gift for clients can affect your business relationships, whereas a heartfelt gift can enhance and strengthen this relationship.
It is better to set a budget for corporate Christmas gifts before you start shopping. Remember, it is not about the expense of the gift but the thought you put into each gift. Any gift for clients needs to be tailored to their likes and interests.
What do you know about your client? Do they put their family first? Do they donate to a charity? Christmas is a great time to learn more about your client based on what you already know. Donating to a local theatre through a ticket purchase could be the right gift for a thespian. Choosing a green gift for a client that is environmentally conscious is another option.
Once you know your client and your budget, you can get shopping for gifts or the materials to create your own gifts. Making gifts is one way to save your budget depending how many clients you have as a small business.Back to top
