Do you find yourself looking at the calendar and wondering where the time has gone? (yup, us too!). We hope you spent the last days of 2021 resting and relaxing with loved ones. As we reflect upon the holidays, some may be feeling a tinge of guilt because they forgot a special one (or two) on their shopping list, or received an unexpected gift from someone they did not shop for in return. If you find yourself in one of these situations, your friendly Gift Experts at Black Bow are here to help.
When we say ‘holiday gifts’ most people default to Christmas – but truth be told New Year’s is just as worthy of a time to give gifts to clients, employees, neighbours or whoever it may be! Below are three reasons why you should consider a New Year’s gifting gesture:
Since most gift exchanges occur leading up to the holidays, it is easy for a gift to get lost in the crowd of bags, boxes and baskets coming in. By opting to give into the New Year your gift is more likely to stand out and ultimately be more memorable.
Holiday shipping delays are always a hassle, because its difficult to know if your gifts will be delivered on time. In addition, many people use up vacation days to gather with family or work remotely leading up to the holidays – so even if the gifts arrive on time there is a risk that the recipients may not even be there to actually receive them. By giving gifts after the holiday rush, they are more likely to arrive to the right person, at the right time, as intended.
Since it is an unconventional gesture, a New Year’s gift will come across as more personal to the recipient and they therefore may be more inclined to reach out to thank you for the unique and thoughtful gesture. This serves as a great opportunity to spark conversations about plans for the New Year both personally and professionally.
