Still keeping my nose to the grindstone. Lots of progress on the publishing project, which is very encouraging. Emailed several steady clients and asked them to send me all the work that will be due January. It will be nice to do the assignments at a slow pace and I can go on leave confident that I have work for January.
Thinking of buying one of my clients a Christmas present but I'm not sure whether it's kosher or not, and if it's OK, what to buy him. He's brought me a lot of work this past year (more than 5 referrals, who now bring me steady work) and I just want to express my appreciation.
Obviously chocolate and gift hampers are out. I had too many of those when I was a journalist and I always ended up giving them away to family, friends, even a couple of tenants. So I prefer something thoughtful that he could possibly use/like.
Client is in his 20s, I think. We're not buddies or chatty or anything like that, so the gift has to be a bit friendly but conservative to reflect our relationship. Suggestions please?
