Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples, so it’s a good time to show your clients how much you care. Is my marketer side showing? Probably. But if you were too busy over the holidays to show love, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do so.

Gift design ideas for Valentines

Here are some unique and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift ideas that will make the people you care about feel loved and special. From branded items to personalised gifts, these ideas are sure to be remembered.

We have something for everyone, whether they want something romantic, useful, or just plain fun. Let’s get started and look at some of the best Valentines gift ideas.

Sweets

Call a local baker and send some cakes or sweets to your clients. Remember to ask them to add your logo to the packaging, and make sure they do it well. If your brand isn’t there, the client might think they have a stalker or secret admirer.

Gifts related to a hobby

You could also give a client something small and thoughtful that relates to their interests or hobbies as a Valentine’s Day gift.

For instance, if you know that a client likes wine, you could give them a good bottle of wine. You could give them a set of gardening tools or a beautiful plant if they like to garden.

Gift Coupons for Design

You can also offer them something special related to your services. This can be a good idea because it shows your appreciation and makes them more likely to keep working with you.

We’re ready for it! We also want your clients to feel special, so you can tell them that you’ll make free social media designs for them that match their brand. 

No sweat! When you subscribe to Deer Designer, you can ask us to make designs for your clients at no extra cost.

Personalized gift boxes

You could also give a personalised present, such as a gift card to a local restaurant or spa. It’ll show that you appreciate their business and want to do something special for them. 

Put your gifts in a classy, customised box, and have your designer make the client’s name look like a beautiful logo.

Couple shirts

Cheesy? Not if it’s for two brands that go well together. Look at what we made. One goes to you, and the other goes to your client. 

It’s not only cool to wear, but it also cements your business relationship, and hopefully, you’ll be partners for life. (💍 wedding bells in distance)

Giving to charity

You could also give money to a charity on their behalf. This could be a great way to show your clients that you care about the community and appreciate their business. It shows love both ways: caring about your client and their advocacies.

Business Signage

Most of your clients might be working from home right now, so where would they put a sign with their logo? I know the perfect spot *drumroll*. Put it on a shelf behind them so other people can see it while they are on online calls and meetings.

They’ll be proud of it, and they’ll remember (and maybe even talk about) how kind you were.

Pillow with your brand

Giving a neck pillow with your brand on it would be a great way to make your brand seem like it’s all about comfort. Another good thing about a neck pillow is that the person who gets it can use it in public. Free advertising!

But I don’t “love” my client…

Every client is different, and let’s face it, you don’t love them all.

It’s best not to give a client a gift if you don’t like them. It might look fake or even rude. Instead, if you’re having trouble with a client, it would be better to find a way to settle any problems or disagreements in a professional and polite way.

Every client is important to your business, so it’s in your best interest to keep good relationships with all of them. And since it’s the day for celebrating love, maybe, just maybe, you can forgive and forget? *Flutters eyelashes*

Giving is just one of many ways to show love

In the end, the best gift will depend on what kind of business you run and what your customers like. 

You could also show your gratitude in other ways, like by sending a personalised thank-you note or calling them to hear their feedback and figure out how you can improve and provide better service.

The most important thing is to show them how much you appreciate them and make them feel important.
