Gift basket for big job...

So I got a contract for a large factory. After my first cut I am sending them a $100 gift basket. Has anyone out there done this? I thought it might get me on there good side so they have no thoughts of not going with me again in the future when some low baller comes in (my great lawn care aside) . Or maybe give them the gift basket at the end of the year to say thanks and that would be a little more fresh in their minds. Will this set me appart from alot of great lawn care profesionals around here? Or what are you guys doing (other than a good job).

wait..a Thank You for choosing________Lawn Care card is sufficient for now...don't look to hungry or too overly grateful, they may think something is awry.End of the season / contract negs. isn't a bad time to brownnose a little..<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/3/3_4_16.gif' border=0></a>..especially if it's a large contract
