5 Easy Digital Gifts to Give Your Client (If You’re a Procrastinator)

It’s taken me years to start planning my client gift-giving early enough so that I’m not scrambling at the last minute. Still, not everyone can be as organized as me. ūüôā Fortunately, there are lots of digital gifts these days that will still put a smile on your clients’ face and get there by Christmas.

5 Easy Digital Gifts to Give Your Client (If You're a Procrastinator)

1. Yiftee

Rather than fight the crowds to¬†buy a physical¬†gift card, try Yiftee.¬†This gifting app lets you digitally send e-gift cards for local businesses (shop local! yay!). You avoid shipping fees, which can really add up, and you know it’ll get before Christmas. Yiftee’s dashboard lets you manage your gifts, see who‚Äôs redeemed them, and manage budgets.¬†You pay¬†$1 per edelivery, plus 5% of the gift card value.

2. Monthly Subscriptions

These are all the rage these days. You can sign your clients up for monthly boxes of pampering, beer, and yes, even bacon. Choose something you know your client is into, then pick how many months you want to send them. Monthly subscriptions vary, but tend to be $20-50 a month.

3. Giftly

What’s cool about¬†Giftly¬†is that instead of choosing the business¬†your client has to spend the gift card at, you choose¬†a category, like ‚ÄúSpa Day‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúCoffee.‚ÄĚ The gift card is a Visa card that can be redeemed anywhere that accepts credit or debit cards. So your clients can choose where they enjoy that cuppa joe or foot massage. Perfect. There is a processing fee, based on the dollar face value.

4. The Gift of Entertainment

If you know a client is a media junkie, send them a gift card for Hulu, Netflix, or another streaming media service. Who doesn’t want more movies to watch over the holidays??

5. The Gift of Savings

Daily deal sites like Groupon offer gift cards, which are great for providing more bang for your buck. The deals are already offered at a fraction of their retail value, so your clients can score great services and products with your gift card, which come either digitally or as a physical card in the mail.

If you put off holiday shopping till the last minute, don’t fret. We live in a digital age, and there are plenty of digital gifts out there.
