Although not mandatory, it's a nice gesture to send a gift to clients with which you conduct business. Whether you're congratulating them on an exciting business development, such as an expansion, or thanking them for staying loyal to your company, flowers are an ideal way to express your sentiments. As you're sending them in a professional context, though, you'll need to be careful to convey the right message with your bouquet. Here are some tips that will help you select the perfect thank you gifts for clients:
- Are you giving an arrangement to an entire group or company as opposed to a specific person? Then consider sending something that everyone will appreciate. You can't go wrong with a combination of flowers and fruit, so you might choose an arrangement that includes a potted azalea plant surrounded by fresh apples, pears and oranges for your clients to snack on. Inside a basket with a large bow, it's sure to bring them delight.
- Yellow and white potted kalanchoe plants look beautiful inside a natural woven basket, and as they don't require much attention, they're an ideal choice for an especially busy office.
- If you're gifting an individual client with flowers, you should take their personal preferences into account. A white phaleanopsis orchid plant in a modern bamboo container is a great selection for someone with refined tastes. Or, you might go for a bouquet with purple dendrobium orchids, carnations and other greenery for a creative type – it's bound to add intrigue to any office space while also boosting the room's feng shui.
- Think about what it is you value in your client. For example, if they seem to have never-ending optimistm, a mix of yellow Gerbera daisies, roses, alstroemeria and carnations with white monte cassino asters look cheerful inside a sunny colored pitcher.
