Jo Ann Woodward, a principal with Schwartz & Woodward, an event-planning company in Houston (713-780-1282;, explains that even inexpensive gifts will be appreciated if they are customized to the recipient and presented with heartfelt thanks. She suggests giving any of the following personalized gifts to make a big impression on a small budget:
• Monogrammed soaps
• Cookies with the client's name or logo
• A photo of the recipient in a nice frame
• Personalized luggage tags
