Should Virtual Paralegals Give their Clients Gifts for the Holidays?

15 Dec 2021 5:13 PM | Cordina Charvis (Administrator)

What are the rules of gift-gifting if you are a freelancer or a virtual paralegal? If you want to give your client a thank you gift, there are ways that won’t cross the line between “loved working with you” and “give me more work”. The etiquette can be a bit tricky. You do not want the gift to be too expensive or personal. It should be a small token of a thoughtful expression and gratitude.

Some suggest a hand written “thank you” note alone or combined with a coffee gift card worth no more than $25.00.

Others suggest promotional items such as pens, note pads and mugs with your business name and logo on them. I read an article that suggested the following:

If you give a person a pen with your logo on it, they’ll remember it for a few days.

If you give a person a nice pen with *their* name on it, they’ll not only remember who gave it to them, they’ll probably hold on to it for a lot longer.

So, whether you should give your client a gift is a personal choice but if you do, keep it professional and make it more about saying thank you and save the business promotion for another time.
