I survived fine without such a waste of perfectly expensive stamps! Honestly, I get some every year and most are from people whom I never knew that well. It is kinda like they are just on autopilot and are not paying attention that we have not seen each other for years and that they even know I was divorced ten years ago. A friendly email updating our lives to our friends and good clients seems to work just the same and without the waste of stamps and cards. If you want to go ahead and send them out, you have my blessings, but really....you will not get many back from me. -scrooge

I use to do this religiously when in the sign industry. Good customers received a small gift too, that was generally geared for the staff to enjoy, not just the head honchos. (I delivered it to the staff to make sure! haha)
The employees became like family to me because that's who I worked beside. I miss them! I may have to bring something to my fav past place regardless... time to catch up over a coffee at lunch time!
An online biz is very different. Brands are the ones that send gifts to the bloggers. It's a very nice gesture in today's electronic world.
