6 Curated Gift Ideas to Give Clients This Holiday Season

  • Oct 18, 2019

Before we know it, the holiday season will be here! And that means one thing… customer appreciation gifts! Avoid giving the same present each year and instead, create your own gift box that is customized and tailored to fit your client’s personality.


More and more companies are starting to put together curated gift baskets or boxes that reflect their clients’ hobbies and interests. Not only does an artisan, personalized present reflect how much thought you put into creating something unique for your customer, but it’s also memorable and, let’s face it, SO much better than the boring, flavorless fruit cake.

Now is the time to begin curating your gift boxes. The best way to do this is by sending out a survey to your most loyal customers. Ask them about their hobbies, do they have a favorite food? The survey answers will give you a better idea of what to include in each basket. Then, have fun when picking out the items! This is a great way to step away from your computer and get those creative juices flowing.


When assembling your client gifts, make sure to pick out decorated bins, boxes, or rustic crates that tie everything together. Presentation matters and you want your clients to be impressed and ecstatic when this arrives at their front door! The above slideshow will give you a clear idea of how to visually assemble the boxes, but we’ve also put together a list of six curated gift box ideas that may help spark some inspiration.
