As Covid-19 continues to impact our daily lives and holiday traditions, a term that keeps emerging is ‘virtual gift-giving’. Last Christmas many people were not comfortable shopping in stores or gathering for in-person gift exchanges, so they opted to give digital gifts and services that could be purchased directly online. A clever and creative idea, but now many are feeling the same worries and wondering how they will outdo themselves from last year!
At Black Bow Gift Co. we believe virtual gift-giving doesn’t have to be limited to digital items only. We are here to support your [virtual] gift giving needs this holidays season with these simple considerations:
Choose a Full-Service Company
Look for full-service companies (like us!) that will prepare, package and deliver holiday gifts for you. Whether it be 1 gift or 500 we are honoured to be chosen for your gifting needs and will happily take care of everything from start to finish. That way you can avoid the stress of shopping and spend your time enjoying the holidays, while still giving impressive gifts that your lucky recipients will love.
Pick Experiential Gifts
If your recipients will also be spending the holidays safe at home, consider giving items that can be used for an enjoyable experience. How about a box filled with gourmet breakfast goodies? Or a hot drink mix for a perfect cozy night cap?
We believe gift giving is not just about lovely products, but also the experience they entail! Our Gift Experts are passionate about creating thoughtfully designed experiential gifts (browse our latest gift collections for proof!). Or if you love creating unique experiences too, then join in on the fun by visiting our Design a Gift page to get started.
Include a Personalized Message
Be sure to include a personalized note for the recipient for that extra special touch of connection. This piece is particularly important if you will not be there with the recipient when they open the gift. You’ll want to include any little notes explaining why you chose the products you did for them, or a special memory it may remind you of.
PSA – every Black Bow gift includes a complimentary handwritten card! We have a beautiful selection of exclusively designed cards for you to choose from.
Shipping delays due to increased volumes in parcels is always a concern around the holidays. But COVID-19 has also put an ongoing strain on supply chain issues – which complicates things even more. What does this mean exactly? Supplies are limited for companies (large and small) meaning that it may take them longer to produce beautiful products as they wait for each component to arrive, or they may produce less volume as a result.
Therefore, we encourage you to start your shopping early to minimize the risks of limited availability and shipping delays. We take our gifting duties very seriously and want to ensure we are providing time and transparency to fulfill your wishes.
At Black Bow Gift Co. we use the finest (and cutest!) products in our hand-crafted gift designs to ensure each gifting experience is beautiful and truly unique. Browse our curated 2021 Holiday Collection today to kick start your shopping this season.
All gifts are also available for worry-free local delivery in the HRM, or for shipments across Canada and the USA.
