Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Franchise Customers

Our favourite holiday gift ideas for customers


The festive season is all about giving, but have you thought about giving your customers a token of appreciation for sending their business your way? If we’ve just sent you into a flat panic now that you’ve realised it’s completely slipped your mind, relax! Franchise Finder’s put together a list of our favourite holiday gift ideas for customers…

How Much Should We Spend on Client Appreciation Gifts?

Most small business owners groan at the thought of yet another financial outlay, but spending a few pennies on a little something that keeps your business top-of-mind is a smart investment. And the good news is that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg! In fact, it’s the thought that counts. To make an impression, banish those run-of-the-mill corporate gifts and go for gifts which are memorable and fun. Focus on a clever concept and pretty packaging – it’s all about making your customers feel good about themselves and a little special, too!
