Hi BSNutrition,

I concur with Old Welsh Guy; you need to be careful when offering gifts. They can become expensive and you want to ensure you're actually adding to the bottom line; but mostly you want to avoid offending or even flouting the law depending on your market. For instance, giving a gift to a government contracting officer can get you banned and the CO fired

We found many of our clients had lofty ambitions and spent time trying to figure out an amazing gift only to see the day pass them by and missing out.

It really is the thought that counts. Most clients will be tickled if you send them a simple (handwritten) card. Plan on that as a fallback and while you're trying to determine what wowza gift you can devise, at least you'll have a contingency so the day doesn't pass you by while you're ruminating.

Cheers!

Regards,
Chris
