4 FUNDAMENTALS OF GIFT GIVING
Receiving a gift can definitely be a special moment, but for many the experience of giving a great gift is even more enjoyable itself. It can be so rewarding to give someone we love a gift that generates a spark of emotion and conveys the message we intended to achieve with it.
Although gift giving is so common in our everyday lives, it can be a source of stress and uncertainty for many. How much should I spend? What do I give? When do I give the gift?For those impacted by COVID-19, there is also the heightened challenge of how will I deliver it to them?
At Black Bow Gift Co., we believe gift gifting should be an enjoyable experience for both the giver and receiver. Our mission is to eliminate any stress and uncertainty that comes with gifting so that our clients can embrace the positives of it. For your support, we have compiled a list of the 4 fundamentals of gift giving to help you achieve those special experiences every time.
Just the thought of giving someone a gift is a generous gesture. But making the extra effort to thoughtfully select a gift intended just for them is key for success.
Consider hobbies they enjoy, scents they love, recent conversations, their favorite color, etc. – anything that may spark an idea for gifts that will say I intentionallypicked this gift for you. When in doubt - go practical. Gifts that can be used and consumed are suitable for any occasion and can be easily customized depending on the recipient's tastes and preferences.
Ensure to also include a personalized message for the recipient. Use this opportunity to share the reason for the gift, remind them of your feelings for them, or explain why you specifically chose this gift.
A personalized message is especially important if the recipient will not be opening the gift in front of you. Our Gift Experts handwrite each message in our custom designed, complimentary cards to ensure every gift has a personal touch.
Stay Within Your Budget
Gift within your means and recognize that everyone's financial comfort zone is different. Remember that gift giving is about the gesture and experience of making the recipient feel valued - not the dollar value itself.
At Black Bow Gift Co., we offer a wide variety of pre-designed gift boxes to cater to all sorts of budgets, including our collection of Gifts Under $75. Alternatively, you may choose our Design a Gift experience to create the perfect gift for both the recipient and your budget.
When it comes to gifts – presentation mattersand in our experience this is where most gift givers need our help. The experience begins when a recipient first lays their eyes on a gift, and that’s why this is not an area to cut corners on, but rather to go above and beyond to create a memorable first impression.
This is one of the many areas of gift expertise that we are proud to be known for. We use only the finest quality materials and provide clients with the opportunity to consider little details such as incorporating a recipient’s favorite colors, choosing a theme, or thoughtfully selecting a custom box, ribbon and accents. Simply by choosing Black Bow Gift Co., you can count on our Gift Experts to professionally prepare your gift and treat it as a work of art.
Timing is Everything
Let’s be real – there is no bad time to give a gift, butthe most impactful gifts are given at just the right time. Giving a gift too early or too late will still be welcome, but it can take away from the magic of the actual holiday or occasion itself. Consider the timing of when emotions will be at their peak and that’s when you want to aim for. For example, a housewarming gift for your clients when they get the keys to their new home, or a get well soon gift for when your friend comes home from the hospital.
That being said, we know things (or pandemics) happen and can cause reasons for not being able to give at that perfect time in person. When this occurs, simply plan ahead. At Black Bow Gift Co., all our gifts are ready within 1-3 business days and available for pick-up or shipping across Canada and the USA.
If the gift will be late, remember the old saying ‘better late than never’. The thought and gesture behind the gift will always be appreciated.
These fundamentals are engrained in what we provide at Black Bow Gift Co. to ensure there is no stress, no worry, and no wrong gift choices. We offer a range of amazing products, opportunities to personalize, and over-the-top, quality presentation handcrafted by our Gift Experts who are here to support you every step of the way.
