Calendars and pens make great customer Christmas gifts.

If you are searching for small business printing Christmas customer gift ideas, a number of options are available. During the Holiday Season, often companies want to thank customers for business during the past year. This works dually to thank your customers and also as a marketing tool. Several gift ideas are available; perhaps one of the suggestions below could work for promoting your company and thanking your customers.

Examples of Small Business Printing Christmas Customer Gift Ideas

Desk Calendars

Desk calendars are available in a number of different designs. A printer will be able to provide several photo themes to choose from. You may want to consider one of the following:

  • Beach
  • Waterfall
  • Landscapes
  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Sports
  • Flowers

A variation on this theme is the photo desk calendar. A photo of your choice is used as the image. If you distribute these items to your customers at Christmas, every time they look at it, they will be reminded of you and your business. It's an easy way to promote yourself every day of the year.

Wall Calendars

Some people prefer to distribute wall calendars to their customers at Christmas. Design themes will be similar to those available for desk calendars. Your company name, logo, and contact information will be added to the product so the customer will see it when they use the calendar. This can be quite an effective marketing strategy to promote your business, and a number of companies rely on it year after year.


Distributing promotional T-shirts is another option for Christmas gift-giving. You can use your company logo or another image of your choice. Add printing on the back of the shirt if you like. If you decide to give promotional T-shirts to customers, be sure to order them well before the Holiday Season.

Fridge Magnets

Fridge magnets can also be distributed to customers as a promotional item. You may want to include them with your holiday greeting cards. This is another way in which to supply your company name and contact information (phone number and URL) to your customers attention all year long.

A photo may be added to the fridge magnet, if desired. You could also have a large fridge magnet made that includes a calendar. Ask the printer about other options for fridge magnets.

Promotional Pens

Everyone needs to use a pen at one time or another, and provide a great way to promote your business. Incorporate your company logo or a photograph of your choice into the design. Be sure to include your contact information as well, so customers can contact you quickly and easily to discuss their needs or to place orders.

Note Pads and Sticky Notes

These items can be used in both the customer's home or office. They can be given out to customers at Christmas and at other points throughout the year. Again, have the printer include your company name and contact information on the note pads and sticky notes so customers are kept well aware of your company name and how to reach you with little effort.


Promotional keychains can also be used to promote a business at Christmas. They are an item that almost everyone can often use. Every time your customer opens a door with their keys, they will be reminded of your business. With the number of styles and colors available, you shouldn't have any trouble choosing a design that matches the theme of your business.

These small business printing Christmas customer gift ideas can be used to promote a business of virtually any type. Determine what your budget is for holiday promotional items and consult a printer about your needs.
