Consider Needs/Wants: Knowing what gift to purchase for a client is the hardest obstacle of corporate gift buying. Most companies do not know their customers personally. Buying for them without knowing their hobbies, interest, likes/dislikes can be hard. Your best bet is to find out about your client by asking them what the like and how they spend their free time. This should give you some ideas of what to purchase.

Company Policies: Before attempting to purchase any gifts, make sure you follow the company's policy towards gift giving. Many companies will have a limit on the amount of money you can spend or may have policies in place forbidding any gifts.

Packaging/Hand Written Messages/Delivery: Sometimes companies worry too much about what type of gifts to give and forget about how the gifts are presented to the recipients. For example, it is so easy to rubber stamp a message on a card and be done. But if you want to make a positive and lasting impression, a good idea is to hand write a personal message with the gift. Also, spend some of your budget on gift wrapping. Or even get a professional service to help you. It is important to make a good first impression when the client sees the gift. To make an even better impression, you should deliver the gift in person. This shows your client they are valued and respected.

Tax Deduction: Find out if corporate gifts are tax-deductible. For example, in the USAArticle Search, corporate gifts are tax-deductible up to $25 per person. Finding out the different tax rules will go along way in determining your budget and making corporate gift giving a vital part of the success of your company.

These basic points should make it easier and more fun when you are purchasing business gifts. Helping you to create and strengthen your professional and social relationship with your clients.
