Nice or over the top gratitude?

I was invited to a corporate event last night by a company I’ve done business with in the past and may do business with in the future. It was a great event, cost probably £80+ a head. I’m considering sending a small gift to say thank you and happy Christmas, is this nice and just properly grateful or OTT and embarrassing? The cost of sending this is about £25 (muffins or fruit basket probably)

Vote IABU if this is OTT or YANBU for send the gift! Thanks!

I think that's a lovely idea and will be much appreciated.

Also won't do future relations with the company any harm!

Just keep it small, where I work anymore than a token £30 ish has to be declared, probity forms completed etc. Which is a pain to say the least. But a small token would be appreciated by our team.

I think a hand written thankyou card and a box of chocolates or other gift would be lovely

Just send a thank-you card or email, I don't think a gift is necessary.

I think £25 is too much but a card and box of quality street might be nice.

I’m not in this type of work tho so I might be talking bollocks.

I would just send a card, tbh.

How about a written thank you within a Christmas card?

Who doesn’t love a muffin basket? Keep it under £30 and pop a nice little note with it.

I think that sounds like a great idea!

I think it's a great idea; who doesn't like to be appreciated?
