Depending on your customer base, a big part of your clienteling plan may well be buttering up your best customers with a little holiday token of your appreciation. But…not in the vein of homemade peanut brittle or elderberry wine.
Gifts with obvious gem and jewelry tie-ins are a sure thing for passionate jewelry collectors, but anything with a whiff of elegance and haute living is appropriate. Things they would never buy themselves but would happy to receive from their favorite jeweler or industry colleague. So probably not branded swag (#sorrynotsorry).
Below, a lineup of ideas to delight all types of clients. Just be sure to place your orders ASAP—we don’t have to tell you that the shipping situation is a cluster you-know-what this year.
Deluxe candles are somewhat expected, yet always welcome. Three scents—cypress, fireplace, and prosecco—come in a bundle, and each one is housed in an aquaprasey greenish-blue vessel.
For the Foundrae fanatic or anyone who appreciates the brand’s mystical aesthetic.
A flash of gold in some form is on-brand for any jeweler, and the personalization shows you went the extra mile (without having to spend a lot!).
Thank them for all the “bread” they’ve put in your pocket this year. Well, maybe don’t say that exactly, but in any event, this is a beautiful piece for holding fresh-baked rolls or just sitting pretty.
Gem lovers will have no problem cozying up to this idea (myself included!).
As old-school elegant as the Sherry-Netherland hotel that made these chocolates, a New York City relic of the past, famous. The malachite pattern ties in nicely, too, no?
Do not attempt unless you know they have a green thumb. For the right client, though, this gift from one of San Francisco’s poshest shopping destinations is so tasteful and elegant—especially when it blooms (with glamorous, lavishly scented white flowers).
Coasters detailed with charm bracelets from a JCK favorite? Cheers to that!
