    Hi everyone, I need to buy a bundle of gifts in bulk quantities (10+ at a time) for some of my clients. I am hoping I could get some suggestions on what kind of gifts you guys would genuinely like to receive or that you have had good experience with gifting to others?

    Price range approximately $30-$50 per, and I'll also be putting thank you cards in the mix as well.

    So far my ideas:

    - Red wine
    - Box of the nicer chocolates

    They're pretty cliche, but I'll go ahead with one of them if its the best option, what other options are there?

    I know someone that does custom little terrariums that are pretty cool. You could probably add something with your biz deets if you wanted, PM if you're interested.

    Check out vistaprint.com.au they can do logos on all sorts of stuff, kinda boring but depending on your field there could be something useful or make something not work related

    But he did mention $30-$50. So the skydiving would be without a tandem partner. Or parachute.

    Would help to know the profile of your clients, demographic, etc for a bit more targeted approach?

    I sell bathroom products and facilitate the design process. These clients are people who I will be visiting in their homes to take photos of their completed bathrooms.

    I thought to ask here because most would fit the approximate demographic range of propertychat. Most are 30+ years old, usually couples, all Sydney based, a whole variety of cultural/career backgrounds.

    This would be great if it fit my price range! I do need something soon though as well, so I am also looking for something I may pop into a nearby store for.

    If it was me, I would love plants, upscale bathroom products such as L'occtaine or spa treatment vouchers from companies such as Elland Bache

    What is the purpose of store gift card or voucher? The only benefit is the store itself. If you forgot to use them before the expiry date, that is money down the drain. Also you are restricted to the gift card store. Unless you can get the gift card a at discounted price.

    I've got the winning idea!

    Towels.... With the couples initials embroided on! (im not sure how much towels are but there are outlet places and buy in bulk for quality)

    I really like this idea

    This makes it even better


    And then this bothers me.

    Would you guys say in general, you would actually appreciate a towel? It'd be a nice thick one!

    I also like the idea of high end bathroom toiletries. Perhaps a decorative flower or two as well. I love how my initial idea of a bottle of wine has been made to look redundant.

    I wouldn't put up a towel uh my new flash bathroom with a "Reece plumbing"logo all over it.no matter the quality.
    And you want a gift that's a thank you for business and relying on word of mouth as they won't be getting another new bathroom for 10 odd years. When they show off the bathroom and people see nice towels it's less tacky with a logo, plus how thoughtful is a nice expensive towel, the ladies will goo and ahh over it
