Wine, certain cheeses, your 401(k) ― even your favorite jeans; they all seem to get better with time. Same can be said for your holiday gift planning. Most of us can appreciate the adrenaline rush of a last-minute opportunity. But adrenaline doesn’t cut it when it’s time to create a one-of-a-kind custom holiday gift experience.
Know what works? You guessed it; time. If you’re reading this the day it drops, that means you have 61 shopping days until Christmas. And a full two months can mean the difference between a gift giving experience that is truly out-of-the-box, and one that simply “checks the box” on your holiday gift list.
Here are some starting points for you to consider to make this your BEST gift-giving season EVER!
Inventory Popular products are often sold quickly especially during the holiday season. If we can’t get our hands on it, we can’t decorate and get to you in time for your gifting. – something along these lines.
What’s your “In Hands” date? In other words, when do you need to have your branded merchandise or apparel in YOUR hands in order to get it to your customers and friends. Let’s work backwards from this date.
Do you need to see a sample first? With so many products and options, maybe you need to lay eyes (and hands) on the product before you can commit to it. Budget time for that, too!
Less than Minimums. Some products require a minimum number of units to be ordered. Got your heart― and your budget ― set on a particular item but need fewer than the minimum order? Again, extra time gives us the room to get creative to get you what you want.
Custom boxing and packaging. Yes, The Dunstan Group can do that for you, too! Our BrandBuilders Box can create a unique presentation experience for your one-of-a-kind holiday gift.
If this all has you wondering about how the whole process works, we totally get it. A lot goes in to getting you exactly what you’re looking for. We’ve streamlined the process by answering some of your most-asked questions here.
