I have a couple of corporate customeers, in the same company, all female, who last year I gave different spa certificates to. My wife will take spa time any time, so it seemed appropriate. I think the gifts should be personal and not something with my logo stamped on it.
I have other clients, associates, vendors who I`ve bought small things for. One person, a good friend, I gave an iPod Shuffle. They`re even cheaper and nicer now.
I live near a big box bookstore; it also has interesting games, café items, etc. I saw a giant book of New Yorker cartoons. That`s going to someone who sees themselves as witty and intelligent. It includes a DVD with 70,000 (!) cartoons on them – their entire history (that gives me cartoon-a-day email promotion ideas...!).
Beyond that, I need ideas. I know you don`t know my clients and associates, so I`d be happy to hear about anyone else`s experiences.
