How to say thank you this Christmas

It's that time of year again! The temperature is getting warmer and holiday music is playing everywhere.

That can only mean one thing - it's time to start thinking about Christmas gifts!

If you're like most business owners, you want to reward your team for their hard work over the past year and thank your top customers for their loyalty.

But what's the best way to do that? And how can you stay within your Christmas budget? Keep reading for some tips and ideas.

Ideas for Rewarding Your Team

One of the most common ways to reward employees at Christmastime is with a bonus. A bonus is a great way to show your appreciation for a job well done and give your team members a financial boost during the holiday season.

If you decide to go this route, be sure to run the numbers beforehand so you don't overspend. Talk to us about doing this for you.

Alternatively, you may also want to consider giving each member of your team a gift card or voucher that they can use as they please. This allows them to buy exactly what they want or need, which is always appreciated.

Another thoughtful way to show your team how much you appreciate them is with a personalised gift. This could be something as simple as a mug with their name on it or a gift basket filled with their favourite things.

Whatever you choose, make sure it comes from the heart and shows that you know and appreciate them as an individual.

Ideas for Thanking Your Top Customers

Your customers are the lifeblood of your business, so it's important to show them how much you appreciate their loyalty.

You could send them a handwritten thank-you note along with a small token of appreciation, like a branded keychain or pen.

If you really want to go above and beyond, invite them to an exclusive event or give them VIP treatment when they next visit your store or office.

Whatever you do, make sure your top customers feel valued and appreciated this Christmas season.

Your Christmas budget

Your Christmas budget is an important consideration when it comes to gift-giving.

To stay on track, set a budget at the start of the season and decide in advance how much you are willing to spend per person for both your team members and clients.

You might like to create categories based on how much your clients spend with you and how valuable they are to you. Your top customers might all receive a larger gift, while the smaller customers might get something more modest.

It's important to understand what you can afford to spend. We can help you run the numbers to understand this.
