commercial real estateAs professional commercial real estate agents, we know that our business wouldn’t be what it is today without our clients. The same is true for all business owners, regardless of the size of their company. And that’s why, at this time of year, we like to show our appreciation. After all, it is the season of giving!

Whether you’re in the commercial real estate industry or not, giving thoughtful gifts to clients, customers, and others who are important to us is a holiday tradition. Here are some popular gift ideas for you to consider this year:

Useful/Practical Items for the Office

Ear buds, jump drives, wall and desk calendars, day planners and power banks are useful and appreciated. Branding these items with your business name and contact information can also make these a powerful marketing tool.

For your executive-level clients, consider more upscale necessities such as Bluetooth headsets/mobile device accessories (great for sales and commercial real estate agents when they are on the road), leather-bound/trimmed day planners or notepads.

Keep Them Warm/Sun-protected While Reminding Them of Your Brand

If it’s really chilly where your customers/clients live, send them hats, sweatshirts, scarves, or  jackets with your logo or brand embellished on them. Since the southern half of Arizona is typically warmer and sunnier, send baseball caps, or sunshades for their vehicle if most of your business is done here.

Perk Up the Coffee Enthusiasts

A travel mug that keeps coffee hot on the way to work and while they are at work, is a great gift for coffee lovers on the go. Also consider including travel-sized coffee packets or flavored syrups.

Sweets Are Always Sweet

It’s the holidays, after all. Time to indulge a little! Cookie baskets, boxes of truffles, or other specialty food items are always a big hit around any office. Tempting treats are never forgotten…and neither will your business be!

Send a Customized Greeting 

If you need to be budget-conscious, sending holiday cards with a creative message that reflects your brand is still a great way to reach out. Be sure to write a quick personal message or have your entire office staff sign their names or holiday greeting. Enclosing a gift card or discount/promo code for your services is certainly a nice touch.

Our team of commercial real estate agents at Menlo hopes these gift ideas will inspire you and help make the right impact on those you are thankful for. Should you have any questions about our commercial real estate services, contact us at 480.659.1777 or email us here – info@menlocre.com.
