American entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker Jim Rohn once quipped: “One customer, well taken care of, could be more valuable than $10,000 worth of advertising.” The multi-millionaire certainly knew what he was talking about, spending most of his life expounding on the qualities to succeed in business and especially in selling.
Understanding the power of happy customers, and the potential of referrals by word of mouth or top-of-mind recall is invaluable, and one of the best ways to grow your business. There are many ways to go about achieving this key business metric, but the most authentic is to cultivate a long-term relationship and express sincere appreciation for their custom or referral with a unique and impactful thank you gift.
Here are some creative client gift suggestions, aside from the stereotypical edible arrangements or customized swag that’ll surely make an impression.
Order A Succulent Arrangement
Just as certain flowers symbolize particular character traits or emotions (peonies for a happy life, bluebells for humility), succulents hold symbolic meaning beyond its most obvious trait, sustainability. They can also represent the spirit of tenacity and the ability to persist over difficult conditions. Instead of sending over a bouquet or an edible arrangement, order a succulent box. Harry and David have a wide range in different pots and arrangements, while Succulents Box can customize a box of air plants and succulents with your company logo.
Gift a Gourmet Food Box
Everyone loves to eat better. While there’s plenty of online meal kits, spending time to research a gourmet option sends a message about your commitment to the details that matter. Crowd Cow offers different boxes of gourmet meat and seafood (“Chick Me Out” for pasture-raised chicken, “Game Day Treats” with bone-in pork butt roast and chicken wings) that’s responsibly sourced from small farms. Aside from one-off or monthly boxes, they have a concierge service for bigger orders and adds a customized note to leave that all-important personal touch. Another fun option is Mouth’s Indie States of America Box. Each month, they curate the best small-batch food from coast to coast, such as artisanal chocolate from Oregon, biscotti from Vermont, and hot sauce from Hawaii, so you can taste your way through all 50 states.

Send Their Fur Kid Some Treats
Pet owners love to spoil their fur kids and appreciate anyone who takes the time and effort to do the same. For the client who shares about his rascally fur kid, BullyMake has one-off/monthly gift boxes of chew toys and treats based on fun themes like “The Wild West”, “Circus” and “Space”. For feline owners, Meow Box knows how much fun a new toy can be, curating boxes of fun treats and playthings like crochet baby aliens and carnival-themed corn dogs for their amusement.
Spoil Them With A Spa Box
We could all do with a spot of self-care and a thoughtful spa box elevates any at-home spa session. Whether it’s a collection of bath bombs and body butter from Lush, a recurring supply of luxurious sheet masks from 7 Lux Subscription, or a year’s delivery of gorgeous candles from Nest New York, it’ll demonstrate that you have their well-being in mind, even if you haven’t met up in person for a while.
