Earth Day 4/22

Green Day

Celebrating Earth Day (which should be every day by the way) reminds me how doing our part to preserve our beautiful green planet can make a difference.  When designing our custom gifts, we use recycled boxes and shred whenever possible.  Below are a few tips on ways you can help our planet.

Planting a tree

I love creating gifts that celebrate and preserve the earth. Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate Earth Day. We’re in love with our Apple-Tree To-Be gift bags! These adorable giftbags are a big hit in so many ways like for a new baby, new home, wedding gift and the list could go on.  Planting a tree symbolizes new beginnings. Trees do way more than beautify an area, they are an excellent source for keeping our air clean, and they help in producing oxygen.Apple Trees to Be

Growing your own herbs

Growing your herbs can be very useful and deliciously fun! You don’t need a large garden to grow herbs, all you need is a windowsill and sunlight. Our Garden-in-a-Pail can be enjoyed from the comforts of inside your home – from the pail to the plate!Herb Pail

Reusable Gift Bag

Reduce, reuse and recycle, the golden rule of an eco-friendly lifestyle. I personally have a love for using reusable totes in my personal life, and I get an extra kick when asked to create gifts in reusable totes. We’re now in the process of making beautiful bridal party, wedding day survival gifts in these timeless gift bags.

Tips for Making Corporate Welcome Gifts Memorable

Corporate gifting can sometimes get a bad rap for being too “corporate.” When giving gifts at events such as conferences, meetings or welcoming out of town guests to your company, these gifts should send a message of thoughtfulness and value.
Below I share five tips for creating memorable corporate gifts that will leave your recipients with a great lasting impression.

#1 Write a personal welcome note

Use creative thinking when writing the letter. It’s easy to use “corporate” speech, so instead, allow the letter to represent a thoughtful note you would enjoy reading personally. Keep in mind, even though the event is business, your guest will most likely view it as entertaining and fun; outside their normal day to day work routine. Don’t forget along with the meeting or conference itinerary, to supply helpful information to your guests such as nearby restaurants and local attractions.

#2 Coordinate gifts to complement event

Making sure the style of the event shines through into the gifting process is our number one goal. By paying attention to every detail in the gift process, allows the guests attending the event to understand what to expect.

#3 Consider your audience

The hardest part of choosing what to give at an event is choosing something that appeals to both male and female. We recommend unisex items, which means each recipient will be able to enjoy the same thing. Unisex gifting makes the welcoming process go quickly and smoothly.

#4 Make it FUNctional

Functional is a word that’s often used in corporate settings when it comes to meetings and conferences. However, your guests want to experience a little fun too! Mix functional and fun together in the welcome gifts, like pairing a simple water bottle with local fun, artisan chocolates or nuts. These small gestures are noticed and greatly appreciated by your guests. Incorporating local items into your gifts gives your out of town guests a sample of what your great city has to offer.

#5 Make it memorable

I have a client who says she spoils her guests who attend her conferences and I think she’s on to something great. You don’t have to break the conference or meeting budget to make your guest feel welcomed and appreciated. So spoil your guest by adding thoughtful touches to your gifts, and they will surely remember your event and want to attend again.

3 Ways to Stay Top of Mind With Your Clients

3 Ways to Stay Top of Mind With Your Clients

As a business owner your clients are your most important assets. Keeping clients coming back whether by giving you a referral or a second purchase should be a permanent marketing strategy of yours. Statistics show the cost of finding new clients is five times the cost of retaining your existing clients. Simply said…a satisfied customer is the foundation of your business.

Here are 3 effective ways to keep your business top of mind with your clients.

#1 Provide Exceptional Customer Service

Client satisfaction is your most powerful tool and is the least expensive. No matter what you are selling, nothing will produce loyalty quicker than a satisfied client. A happy client is your best marketing mouthpiece. They will share their experience with their friends, family and co-workers whether good or bad. When concentrating on the longevity of the relationship, remember to plant the seed of value and appreciation, which in return will produce a healthy, long-lasting relationship. It takes an investment of your time, patience and money to build a rewarding relationship with your clients, however it is the most effective investment you will make for your business.

#2 Set Yourself Apart From the Competition

You already know the cost associated with attaining new clients, and I’m sure you are already aware that your competition is waiting in the wings to woo your clients right out from under you. Stay aware of the cost of replacing a client by understanding the value of never giving them a reason to leave. Your mission is to engrave the notion that doing business with you will be rewarding and satisfying. Your clients should never have a reason to look at your competition once they make the choice to do business with you. Set yourself apart by thinking bigger and smarter than your competition. Strategically develop an identity that sets you apart from everyone else.

#3 Create “Wow” Experiences

Making sure you stay top of mind with your clients means they should be top of mind with you, because they are your most valuable business assets. Create opportunities to remember and thank your clients for their continued business. Most clients don’t expect anything from doing business with you. So imagine how unforgettable you become when you create a “wow” experience by giving them a gift they will love and appreciate.

Even in this social media driven world we live in, people are socially depraved. Showing up at a clients door with a gift to say thank you, appreciation or just because says much more than a like on their social media page. And most importantly they will remember the gift for years to come. The Personal Gift Basket
