Fun Gift Ideas for Clients ($20 or less!)
Pin this post to Pinterest to reference it later!
Sending little gifts to clients for Christmas, birthdays, or to say “thank you for working with me” or “congratulations” is a great way to stand out as a virtual assistant. Not only is it a wonderful gesture that shows how much you appreciate your client’s business, it also shows how much you care about them as a person.
I think personalized gifts are the best. I believe that sending a gift to a client is yet another opportunity to shine and stand out. Giving him or her a gift that says, “I picked this just for you” is really special and will get you good karma points (and maybe more work!). When you do something special like that they’ll remember it and will be more likely to refer you to their colleagues or share on social media.
For example, I found out that a new client of mine loves popcorn. She loves it so much she mentioned it in her bio on her website (this is a great way to find out what your clients are into, by the way), so I sent her some Quinn Popcorn, one of my faves! She was so happy, she shared on Instagram and tagged me in the photo.
Ok, let’s get to the gifts! Below is a list of fun gift suggestions for clients, no matter the reason, and all under $20. They’re broken down into different interests.
I hope this list makes it easy for you to find something special! (By the way, I have another list of gift ideas right here).

FUN GIFT IDEAS FOR CLIENTS, ALL UNDER $20:
— CAT LOVER —
If your client has a cat child or is cray-cray over kittens, their heart will melt for these kitty inspired gifts.
Cat Sticky Note Memo Pads – Set of 5 kittens, each in their own boxes, ready for adoption. Since each kitty is different you could send one to each of your cat-loving clients, maybe along with a cat pen? You can never have enough cats, right?
Cat Roller Ball Pens – Everyone needs pens! These adorable cat pens are extra special for the purr-fect client!
Black Kitty Coffee Mug and Spoon – Pair this with some coffee or tea and you’ll be the cat’s meow!
— DOG LOVER —
Does your client prefer the other four-legged fur ball? They’ll get a kick out of these cute canine gifts.
Dachshund Tape Dispenser with Bone Shaped Paper Clips – Brighten up your client’s office with this fun tape dispenser (comes with magnetic food bowl and bone paper clips too!).
Dog & Bone Paper Clips – Paper clips are an office necessity, but they don’t have to be boring! Give your client these sweet dog themed paper clips and they’ll smile every time they see them.
Cute Little Dog Coffee Mug and Spoon – Your canine-loving client will love this adorable mug with a fun paw spoon for stirring in cream and sugar!
— HEALTH NUT —
Is your client a health professional or health enthusiast? These gifts show her you care about her health as much as she does.
Handmade Ginger Lime Soap – Mmmmm! Trust me, health nuts love natural soap. I should know because I am one! I recommend choosing one that’s handmade through small batches using only natural ingredients. And if your client is vegan, make sure the soap is too!
Lemon Lavender All Natural Body Lotion – This stuff smells so fresh and relaxing! This would make a lovely gift for your health-conscious client who needs a little stress relief.
Water Tracking Bottle – Your client can stay hydrated and keep on top of her water intake in a stylish way!
— TEA LOVER —
Is your client into tea? These lovely gifts are sure to be a hit!
Tea Mug with Infuser and Lid – I received something similar as a gift and I love it! You add loose tea to the infuser, dunk the infuser into the cup of hot water, cover with the lid and let the tea brew. Then, when you’re done, you flip the lid over onto the counter, remove the infuser and place it on the inverted lid. Genius!
Harney & Sons Green Tea with Coconut in Tin – This brand has many different flavors of tea in either bags or loose. Plus, the tins are cute enough to place on a desk or put a plant in when the tea is gone!
Glass Tea Infuser Bottle – This gorgeous infuser bottle allows your client to enjoy a perfect cup of tea on the go! Talk about convenient!
— COFFEE LOVER —
Do they love a good cup of joe? These gifts will add some sass to that caffeine.
Bitch I’m Fabulous Unicorn Mug – If your client has a sense of humor and loves unicorns (who doesn’t!) they’ll love this mug!
Decaf is for Sissies Coffee Spoon with Spoon Rest – Make sure your client doesn’t drink decaf before sending her this hilarious coffee spoon!
Kicking Horse Coffee – Fairtrade, organic, and kosher. Plus it’s got a cool name.

Shoot for the Moon Inspirational Bookmark – ”Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” What a sweet message to mark a book with!
Affirmators – “50 Affirmation Cards to Help You Help Yourself without the Self-Helpy-ness”. As you can tell by the card’s description, these are fun! I like to pull a card each day to get a good laugh while I get inspired.
Amazon Gift Card – If all else fails, an Amazon gift card is the perfect gift! Your client can pick anything from their wishlist, and you can even send them through email with a fun Ecard or video! Sending through the mail? Check out this Amazon card in a cute cupcake tin!
Giving the perfect gift doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. All it takes is a little effort to get to know your client and a desire to give them something special. Everyone likes getting gifts, so this is a fun and simple way to stand out as the awesome VA you are!
