Thanking Your Customers – 7 Ideas for Thanksgiving Gifts

Most of us have much to be thankful for, our families, jobs, good health, friends, and community. We should be grateful every day, not just once a year in late November. And for those of us in business, we should be thankful for our customers, vendors, and employees year-round. However, it doesn’t hurt to recognize these people with special Thanksgiving gifts of appreciation.

7 Thanksgiving Gifts for Client’s

Turkeys

Order them online, packaged, prepared, or even sliced. Another easy way is to give turkey gift certificates. Kroger’s, Walmart, and other regional and national grocery chains have great deals on Turkeys this time of year.

Hams

Hams can be ordered online, and canned hams come in many sizes and types. I always think of the fictional honey glazed Heavenly Ham in John Grissom’s novel Skipping Christmas.

Cheese

How about a cheese slicer and cheese set to start the festivities? Here’s an example of a Bamboo Cheese Slicer and a  Bamboo and Slate Cheese Serving Board.

Sweets

There are chocolate covered Oreos, truffles, and confections to fill anyone’s sweet tooth. They come in gift boxes wrapped in holiday paper with bows, and in jars, as well as bags. Candy Boxes and Jars

Nuts

Nuts come in tins, jars, and boxes, but my favorite is nutty wine – wine and nuts! Here’s one I can’t resist! “32 ounces of freshly roasted and salted Almonds, Jumbo Cashews, Pecan Halves, and raw Brazil Nuts. No peanuts in here! Perfect any time and every time gift, suitable for all corporate and holiday promotions, projects, awards, events, appreciation or retirement gifts, and don’t forget trade show hand-outs!”  — 32 Oz. Deluxe Mix Nuts Designer Gift Tin (no Peanuts)

Cooking Utensils and More

Cookbooks abound, and there are plenty of kitchen gadgets. Measuring cups and spoons, grill master, pocketed, and waist aprons. And I love this idea – branded containers for Thanksgiving leftovers!

Cards

Christmas isn’t the only holiday with cards. Thanksgiving is the beginning of the traditional Holiday season so why not send Thanksgiving cards. There are cornucopias, snowy covered cabins with  skaters in the background, seasons greetings, and joy to the world cards all which could be used to represent you and your business.

Do You Know How Thanksgiving Began?

Okay, I know this has little to do with the content of this post, but if you don’t know the story, it’s fascinating.

“Festivals of Thanksgiving were observed sporadically on a local level for more than 150 years. They tended to be autumn harvest celebrations. But in 1789, Elias Boudinot, Massachusetts, member of the House of Representatives, moved that a day of Thanksgiving be held to thank God for giving the American people the opportunity to create a Constitution to preserve their hard-won freedoms. A Congressional Joint Committee approved the motion, and informed President George Washington. On October 3, 1789, the President proclaimed that the people of the United States observe “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” on Thursday, the 26th of November.” – Smithsonian Education
