Can Clients Accept Gifts From Employees?
by Angelane Cervantes on Dec 02, 2022
When it comes to gift giving in a workplace, it will depend on the industry you are working in. For instance, a client could feel that this is an attempt to buy their loyalty or get them to do favors for the company. If you are working as a freelancer, there should be no restrictions when it comes to your gift but if you are a corporate employee or if you are working under someone, it is important to note that there are ways to present a gift in a professional way. An employee should not give the client expensive items or gifts that can be easily misinterpreted, such as flowers or perfume. Gifts should be simple and practical, and in this blog post, we will give you gift ideas that are safe to give to your clients.
If you are working in the corporate industry, desk wedges are one of the best gifts you can give your clients. This way, they can use it most of the time and display it on their desks. Have us personalize the desk wedge with their name and position and we are sure they will be happy with your gift! Choose among different styles, sizes, and designs of our desk wedge collection!
If your employer often uses computers and laptops, a customized mousepad is one of the best gifts you can give them. You can either put a logo of the company on the mousepad or put any motivational quotes on it. Regardless of the design, we are sure your client will love it!
As a busy person, for sure your client will need to jot down notes most of the time. If they do not like to use their phone most of the time, our mini notebook is one of the best options! They can also bring it anywhere they need it because it is very convenient.
What is a notebook without a pen, right? Customize a pen for your client along with a customized mini notebook for them!
Have your client safely store their personalized pen when you have us customize a pen case for them.
If a gift is given without the intention of receiving anything in return, it should not matter to who it is given. The recipient should not have to worry about violating ethics and company policy. A gift is often an expression of feelings or gratitude, and if these feelings are genuine then the giver should feel obligated to give gifts as a way of expressing their appreciation. In this sense, there is no harm in giving a client a gift as long as they are not expecting anything in return. Clients should be able to accept gifts from employees with the same level of reciprocity. As long as the employee does not expect anything in return for giving that client a gift, then it would be appropriate for them to receive one from that employee too.
