By Catherine What are some of the best client gift ideas? At Black Mountain, we tend to overthink things in this department - probably because we both love nice things, a lot! To me, there's a clear formula for the perfect client gift that involves price (not too expensive but not cheap either), usefulness (desk ornaments are great but will they simply clutter their desk?) and aesthetic appeal (they definitely have to be beautiful to look at). Then there's the added x-factor that they need to be original enough to stand out from the rest of the gifts your clients receive, and they need to be easy to order (online please) and deliver.
