The right client gifts lets your clients know that their patronage is important to you, and helps cement your business relationships. The best client gifts take your clients' personal interests into account, and impresses them with your thoughtfulness and sincerity. While giving client gifts at Christmas is popular, you'll find that recipients appreciate them any time of year. Here are my picks for client gifts that you can give with pride.

If the clients you want to thank are golfers, consider this putting mat as a client gift. The professional style putting mat (9 feet long) is ideal for refining speed and control. But what I really like about this particular model is that all your putts are automatically returned. A client gift like this one will be really appreciated by anyone working on improving their putting.

9. Season's Tickets

Tickets to a whole season's worth of your client's favourite sporting or cultural events are sure to be an impressive client gift. Football and hockey are popular pastimes, but don't overlook the symphony or ballet if your client has an interest in these. Can't afford a whole season's worth as a client gift? Get 4 or 5 tickets to a particular game or event so your client can take the whole family.

10. Golf or Ski Passes

Clients who golf or ski always appreciate passes to do more of what they love to do as client gifts. Many golf courses or ski hills offer passes or punch cards for a particular number of visits if a membership or full season pass is too rich for you.
