Every year, Americans from sea to shining sea take a Thursday in late November to gather together, eat some turkey, watch some football, eat some more turkey, and count our many blessings. We sit around tables with our friends and family and take some time to think about everything we have to be thankful for.
We give thanks for our good health, for the friends and family we’re surrounded by, for Thursday football and leftover turkey sandwiches. We also give thanks for our business successes and the security they provide. It’s important to take some time and think about how far your business has come, but it’s also important to think of how far you can still go.
No matter how hard you worked or what you sacrificed, you didn’t build your business by yourself. Without your employees, clients, and customers, none of the things you’re so thankful for would have been possible. Remembering how you go to where you are is the best way to get where you want to go.
This year, instead of taking a break to silently give thanks in between the second and third slice of pie, why not take a moment to show your thanks directly? A personalized gift is a great way to celebrate your past with your employees, clients, and customers while building a stronger relationship going forward.
More Than a Number
Give and take is the nature of a solid professional relationship. Sure, your clients are getting your services in exchange for their payments, but the fact is that they chose your company out of a crowded marketplace. Anything you can do to reinforce that they made the right decision is only going to strengthen your relationship and guarantee future business.
Thanksgiving is about two things: thankfulness and eating. Why not combine both and send your most valued clients one of our delicious custom gift baskets? Getting a magnificent tower of treats with your company’s logo prominently displayed is a great way to remind your clients that you value them.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
While you’re watching those Thursday football games, pay attention to the fact that football is a team sport. The best quarterback in the world can’t complete passes without receivers who run the right route and an offensive line that blocks for him. Your business is the same way. It requires everyone to be on the same page, fulfilling their personal role to complete a team objective.
Your employees are the ones out there running routes and blocking for you, and there’s no better time than Thanksgiving to let them know how much you appreciate it. By late November, it’s getting cold outside. Why not outfit your team in some of our custom winter wear? It’ll help them brave the elements and put their team spirit on display all winter long. The teams out on the field have uniforms, why shouldn’t yours?
Time to Come Together
The turkey and the pie and the football are all nice, but in the end Thanksgiving is all about relationships. It’s about celebrating the relationships you’ve built and coming together to make them even stronger. Enjoy your time with your friends and family, but also take some time to be thankful for your business relationships. Don’t settle for a moment of quiet reflection, though. Do something to show your thanks this year. By strengthening your relationships now, you’ll make sure that you have even more to show thanks for next year.
