    We usually try to buy our larger customers a gift for Christmas,a cheese and cracker basket,a constuction model with our name on it,etc.Does anybody else do this and what do you give.

    I've never given gifts, but I do send cards to all my customers. Some I can wish a "Merry Christmas" to....
    Others, I just wish a safe happy holiday season, and thank them for their business. At least 50% of my customers celebrate Hanukah... Sometimes it's hard to determine who celebrates what, so the "holiday season" covers all.

    Digs; cheese and crackers? Is that the small packets that you get in the vending machines for 50 cents?

    Don't forget to give some to the ISU people; you can charge them $50 per cracker and then 5 cents for the bottle of wine.
