While most people prefer to give holiday business gifts in December, there are several compelling reasons to choose Thanksgiving for business-related gift-giving.
1) Many offices close for Christmas week, or people choose to take that week off. Your gift can't get to them in time if they are not there. If it's a food gift, it may even spoil before it's received, leaving a not-so-pleasant impression (and maybe some uninvited pests).
) By giving your business gifts at Thanksgiving, you're guaranteed to avoid the holiday rush of gifts that become a jumble of packages and baskets with no one quite sure who sent what. Yours will be among the very first gifts to arrive (if not the first) making you stand out from the crowd.
3) Is there a better time to give a gift in thanks of new business, continued business, loyalty from employees, appreciation of referrals and/or great support and service from vendors than Thanksgiving - the holiday expressly created for giving thanks? The sentiment will be well appreciated at this most appropriate and American of holidays.
Now is the time to start making your choices before inventory disappears or rush fees start to apply.
