Biz talk – A Personal “Thank You” Goes a Long Way!


Looking for ways to thank your staff or your customers this holiday season?

Try and think of a way that thanks them that represents who you are: Homemade baked cookies or chocolates packed in a tin box says that you really spent a bit of time doing something nice for them. Gift certificates can seem a bit too easy, but include one with an actual cup of coffee, or a donut, depending on the certificate, to make it a bit more fun. Giving a bottle of wine? Add a note about why you chose that particular wine, maybe a printout from the Internet about where it’s from and how to serve. Give a “packaged evening” – DVD with a package of popcorn and a 6 pack; gift certificates for dinner and a movie; restaurant coupon and a promise to babysit.
