The Art of Gifting.. How not to give crumby gifts!

27th Oct 2015

There is nothing worse than forgetting an employee or valued client at Christmas time. Not recognizing all their hard work and appreciating their business is quite scrooge like.

We are here to help with our 'Top Festive Tips' to make sure you are far more Santa than Scrooge this holiday season.

Festive Tip


Make a list.. and like the song says - Check it Twice! Hand your list over to a colleague for them to revise and point out any missing names. The last thing you want is to be reminded for the next 365 days of 'that time you forgot a gift' or worse still - make that person feel left out and excluded!

Festive Tip 


Once you know how many gifts you are after, you can begin budgeting and placing your orders. There is enough on your plate as we quickly approach the end of the year, relax knowing all of your gifts are under way so you can wind down into Christmas with a glass of bubbles instead of racing around in that last minute dash to the shops.

Festive Tip 


Choosing the 'PERFECT' gift can be a tricky one. But as a general rule - steer clear of anything office/work related such as stationary. You may also want to avoid overly personalized gifts that might send a mixed message such as perfume or a gym membership.

Festive Tip 


Send a gift that keeps on giving! Living gifts are universally loved by all. Send a unique and exotic orchid for the plant lover or for something truly unique and perfect for those of us not blessed with a green thumb - a Kokedama (coke-e-da-ma) or succulent terrarium. Something beautiful and quirky that can be admired long after your Boxing Day hang over is gone!

Festive Tip 


Get creative! Think of personal gifts and really consider WHO you are buying for. What about a beautifully gift wrapped money tree for your accountant or financial adviser (they look after all the $$ so be nice to this department, especially at Christmas!). A stunning arrangement of fresh seasonal fruit and a glittery bottle of champagne for the manager who loves to eat well and have a sneaky glass here and there.

Festive Tip 


We are all so busy at this time of year - a gourmet hamper really ticks all the boxes and is an excellent party starter for the entertainer among you or as an all office gift for a small firm. Go that extra mile and make sure to include their favorite party treats and a personalized gift card. With delectable goodies for all to share, your exquisite gift will thrill everyone!

The beauty of the gourmet gift hamper comes together when each item is thoughtfully chosen to the recipients tastes. It shows your consideration of them, and will be remembered for all of it's delicious contents long after the silly season comes to an end for another year.

So what are you waiting for.. get shopping!! We have lots of great gift ideas this season, with personalized hampers, living gifts and much, much more in store.

Challenge us with your perfect gift predicament and see what we can come up with!

Because.. they will never forget how you made them feel!
