How to Say Thank You to Your Clients While Still Maintaining Social Distancing.
Your customers and clients mean the world to you and now more than ever you want to show them how much you appreciate them and their business. But with businesses being run from homes, or not open to the public, how do you reach out and say thank you but still maintain social distancing?
We are currently living in a no handshake, no hugging world so it can be tough to show you value your customers and clients. While it may not be the way you would normally show your gratitude, there are plenty of delivery options available which can be personalized to each client's taste and interests.
The homemade craft website may not be the first place you think of when deciding on a gift for a client. But the internet giant has a wide range of corporate as well and niche gifts for a wide range of tastes. Gifts for golfers, movie buffs, hunters, dog and cat enthusiasts, gardeners as well as corporate gifts including tumblers, desk sets and mouse pads can be found (and customized) on this versatile gift-giving site.
When a thank you card doesn’t seem like enough and you want to send that client just a little bit more, try greetabl. This website allows you to create and customize a personal box of treats, or a small gift to brighten the day of whoever receives it! Packaging is both beautiful and fun, giving the recipient a gift even before they see what’s inside the box. Prices range from $3 to $28 allowing you to find just the right gift at just the right price.
When it comes to shopping online, Amazon is one of the first places you think. With everything from stickers to houses (yes, you can buy a house on Amazon) there is something for everyone on Amazon. Corporate gifts are no expectation. Plus with two-day shipping with Amazon Prime and gift wrapping available it allows the gift to get to your client quickly and already wrapped. And who doesn’t love to see an Amazon box with their name on it?
Of course it is important to think local when it comes to gifts to clients. While a beautiful bouquet will brighten anyone’s day, local florists often sell more than flowers and can create baskets of sweets, spa items and even meats and cheeses. It is worth looking at your local florists to see what they create with or without flowers!

While not everyone is likely to admit it, everyone loves candy! Whether it’s chocolate, carmel, coconut or fruit-flavored, everyone likes to indulge every now and then (or every day at 3) for a sweet treat. Local candy shops are perfect for creating a personalized basket or bouquet of treats perfect of any client or office. Not sure what they like? Get an assortment, and you’re sure to please everyone in the office!
Here in Hillsdale Michigan, we have a local candy shop called Small Town Sweet Boutique: https://www.smalltownsweetboutique.com/
We may not be able to see our clients face-to-face right now (or even mask to mask), but you can still show them how much you appreciate their business with a personalized gift delivered right to their door.
