Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.
It’s officially gift-giving season, which means that now’s the time to start checking off everyone on your list. (If you’re already there, well, kudos o’plenty to your terrific planning-ahead skills).
Showing your gratitude to your clients can be an effective way to stay top-of-mind and potentially draw more business in the new year. Most importantly, though, it’s a nice gesture — one that’s guaranteed to bring a little smile to whoever receives it. (After all, who doesn’t like presents?)
Last week, we asked readers to share what they’re gifting this year. Here are some top picks:
- Homemade potpourri in glass Ball jars to heat up on the stove and make your home smell good
- Candy from local candy maker
- Personalized doormats with client’s name on it
Perhaps you all were buying away over the holiday weekend (if so, please share!) or simply doing some long over-due relaxing with loved ones. Either way, we received a few answers, but we’d love some more. Please share yours in the comments section below.
