Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like homemade cookies! Pop by your clients’ homes with a plate of cookies or other festive baked goods. Be sure to include a note wishing them a happy holiday season. Plus, it’s extra fun to make them in seasonal shapes like Christmas trees, snowmen, and reindeer.
Brighten up your clients’ homes with a beautiful poinsettia plant. These plants are associated with Christmas and will add some holiday cheer to any room. They last a long time, so your clients will be sure to remember this thoughtful gift.

A Christmas ornament is a thoughtful and unique gift that your clients can enjoy for years to come. Personalize the ornament with your client’s name, the year, or a special message. Just make sure to order well in advance so that your client can display the ornament on their tree this year!
A gift card is always appreciated, especially during the holiday season when people are buying gifts for others. Give your clients the gift of convenience with a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store.
