Summer barbecues, newlywed housewarmings, or simple family get-togethers are just a few examples of events that may leave you scrambling for ideas on what to bring as a host/hostess gift. Do you go big and bold or do you turn to the fail-safe bottle of wine?

Gift baskets are the perfect gift because they are so versatile and are great for any gifting occasion. I’m sure you know how easy it is to spend hours shopping and searching for that perfect gift, so to make your life a little easier (in the gifting department at least) I want to give you a few host/hostess gifting options that will help you shine at your next party.[Read more…]
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 gift bags 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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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.
