The Happy Healthy Chef:

Consider gifting plans that are memorable,  one of a kind such as  a custom engraved set of cutlery. Every month different piece of utensil to fill a wooden block.

Do you have a client who sends you favorite photos of her pet? It can be so easy to get to her heart and will keep you in good favor with the whole householdby sending treats and toys.

The Health Enthusiast:

An easy option is to send a health subscription service. Find out what they like and look for a great magazine that you know they’ll appreciate. This is such a great gift idea for the health nut. Are they constantly reading about the new zero- net-carbohydrates- zero calories -no gluten – made of a healthy natural fiber foods?

 

Obviously, some of these gift ideas are fairly personal, so you may want to make sure you have created a good relationship before sending them a monthly gift that they will appreciate and think about you first when the time comes for your services.

Keeping a present customer is so much easier than expending time and resources in trying to find a new one.  Find ways to show that you know what they’re passionate about — whether that’s fluffy socks or their gerbil helps them enjoy that passion.
