Let’s face it, with new businesses popping up every day, the competition to retain clients is tougher than ever. While improving your service and products should be top of your client retention strategy, it’s not the only way to impress your client base. 

Unique promotional gifts are a time-tested and effective tool to show clients you care and help your brand stand out against the sea of competitors. To help you find the perfect promotional gift to wow your clients, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best in this post.

The “make your-mark” double-sided notebook

A Streamline exclusive, the double-sided notebook is a perfect choice because it combines remarkability with usability. It’s a little unusual, meaning it’s bound to leave a lasting impression, but it’s also useful. For busy executive clients, it’s a valuable tool to help them organise meeting notes and easily segment notes related to different topics.

Player package golf set

While many businesses send out bulk promotional gifts, it’s the ones who tailor their offering to the individual that see the best results. 

A branded golf set, like the one pictured above, is a great example of a gift you could send out that’s tailored to a client’s hobbies or interests. Because you’ve taken extra care to deliver something personalised to them, it’s sure to leave them feeling valued and appreciated.

Executive cuff links

For many business executives – including your clients – having a stylish set of cufflinks is an integral part of the dress code. Providing these as a corporate gift for your clients is not only going to put a smile on their face, but it’s also going to ensure your client thinks of your business every time they don the cufflinks. And, who knows, you might even get a little word of mouth promotion when colleagues comment on them at meetings and events.

Compact shoe shine kit

For clients who dress sharp and aim to impress, there’s nothing more important than a freshly polished pair of dress shoes. Offering a comprehensive shoe cleaning kit like this one shows your client you understand their business needs and what’s important to them. And, that’s bound to leave them with a positive opinion of your brand. An opinion they’re like to share with their peers too!

Luxury pen and pencil set

Just like a freshly polished pair of dress shoes, a high-quality pen or pencil is another important part of your executive client’s accessories. And for good reason. Using a luxury pen or pen-like the ones above gives the impression of professionalism, an important characteristic for executive clients to embody. If you really want to impress, the sleek carbon-fibre finish on the example above always turns heads!

Providing unique promotional items that help your clients achieve the status they need to succeed is another sure-fire way to keep them coming back to do business with you again and again.

Wrap up

Of course, it’s not just the gifts you provide that’s important. You also need to consider how they’re presented. After all, there’s a huge difference in perception between a unique corporate gift delivered in a standard cardboard box and the elegantly curated corporate gift pack pictured above.
