Receiving any form of gratitude, whether it’s through a handwritten note, a bottle of wine, or even a simple cup of coffee, is always heartwarming and rewarding. But what resonates most is receiving something unexpectedly.
Getting that surprise gesture of “just because” creates excitement and appreciation. It makes an impact, which in turn leaves a powerful impression on those you are working with.
John Ruhlin, business gift-giving expert and author of “Giftology” says that typical holidays are “the noisiest and most-cluttered time of the year. So we do our gifting the other 11 months out of the year.”
By tailoring your message properly you can turn a day not typically associated with business relationships into an opportunity to surprise and delight your clients and prospects. Choose “Valentine’s Day to send a gift that says, ‘We love working with you!’, or St. Patrick’s Day to send one that says, ‘We’re lucky to have you as a partner!’”
