Make Your Clients Long-Time, Loyal Friends with These Gifts


July 06, 2018

We all have stacks of mail at home, and somewhere in there is another thank-you card from another business we went to. Maybe the hair salon, or the oil change service, or the financial adviser. We rarely open them, and even if we do, we don't always remember who they're from.

If you want clients to remember you, and to pass your name on, you need to give them a final impression that lasts. Rather than a thank-you card, consider giving your clients more, like the gift of a new experience.

Kansas City is FULL of thrilling, unique experiences that are perfect for any size group. A lot of people who live in the area are still learning about them, so your gift might be the first time your client even knew the experience existed. Experience gifts are the best, because an experience is something they’ll have forever. It’s also something a client might not buy for himself. It’s easy to buy a client a generic present. It’s special if it’s an experience that will show them more of what this city has to offer.

Here are a few ideas that make much better gifts than thank-you cards.

Painting Parties

    Not only are painting parties a GREAT experience gift, but everyone goes home with a masterpiece that reminds them of you! Apple Pie Painting offers KC's best painting party experience because they bring the party TO the client. They’ll bring everything needed to create a work of art, including the materials, the paints, and the instructor. It’s a great time, no matter how skilled (or unskilled) the artist is. Everyone could use a little time to unwind for a couple of hours, and enjoy some creative freedom.

      Escape Rooms

      Who doesn’t love a good game? Escape rooms give you a set amount of time, and a series of clues, to figure out how to get out of a room. It’s great for small groups, and Kansas City has several of them.


      Ballroom Dancing

      This is one of those activities that a lot of people secretly want to try, but are sometimes too afraid to. With your gift of ballroom dance lessons, they’ll finally  get out and do it! Ballroom dance lessons are good for beginners or experienced dancers, and couples or solo dancers.


      Axe Throwing

      Axe throwing is all the rage right now, and it’s perfect for any size group. It’s simple: throw an axe at a target, and see how you do.


      Horse Back Riding

      A lot of people think horseback riding would be fun, but don’t know where to go to just be led on a trail for a relaxing ride. Wild Rose Equine Center is one of the businesses that offers trail rides, and you can  book online.

        Zip Lining

        You’ll never see views like this. ZipKC has ziplines that can take you 50 miles an hour. You can zipline during the day, or take a sunset tour. There are a variety of packages that combine ziplining and hiking. It’s exciting, and it’s right here in KC.

        Giving your clients a thank you card when you close business is definitely something that should be done. Giving them an experience that leaves them with a lasting memory is what will keep them coming back, and telling all their friends to come to you!

        First, it’s vital that you know that making art is about so much more than your “abilities”. It doesn’t matter how “good” or “bad” you are (or how good/bad you think you are). Just create and have fun with it, you owe it to yourself. Giving yourself permission to be “bad” at something and to do it anyway can unlock new possibilities. It can inspire you in ways you never knew you could, or even needed to, be.
