It’s never too late to say thank you to clients! Several clients of ours were too busy to send holiday gifts to clients in December, but still wanted to thank clients in the New Year. So we came up with some fun gifts for them with a New Year’s theme. By choosing a non-traditional gift-giving holiday or season, business gifts have the potential to stand out even more.

Zoltan Farkas Construction: We created ZFC gift tags with personalized New Year’s messages, and attached them to all of their gift bags and baskets. The modern black gift bags, black satin ribbon, and custom gift tags all reflected the ZFC brand colors, and featured tasty local Seattle snacks and freshly-roasted coffee from Caffe Vita for ZFC’s subcontractors, designers and architects. ZFC decided upon cooking-oriented gift baskets for their client gifts since most of their clients now enjoy new kitchens as a part of the remodeling work done on their homes. These baskets featured a large garlic braid from McFadden Farms, La Panzanella Croccantini, Mama Lil’s Peppers, artisan Italian pasta from Rustichella D’Abruzzo, Nunes Farms nuts, and other goodies. ZFC reported that most of their clients were excited to see garlic in the cooking gifts and commented on the strong graphic presentation of the gifts.

Catalyst Marketing also decided to give New Year’s gifts to their key clients. Some of the gift baskets were going to various departments at University of Washington and featured branded edibles that Catalyst couriered to us, including chocolate-dipped UW oreos and UW biscotti. The gifts also featured purple-foiled confections & Seattle Chocolates, coffee from Lighthouse Roasters and Caffe Vita, other sweet & savory goodies, custom gift tags and purple ribbon mirroring the Husky purple. The larger gift baskets also contained pre-printed silver and black UW tote bags, also sourced by Catalyst Marketing. Catalyst Marketing hand-delivered all of the gifts directly to their clients, thus strengthening the impact of the thank you message.
