The intense flurry of the festive season seems like a distant memory with Christmas gifts now given and the corks on New Years champagne well and truly popped. Time to have a good think about the year ahead!
Whether its people who know me from my previous careers or people I am meeting for the first time, I am generally asked the same question “Why would anyone use a gift wrapping service?” Fascinatingly the demand for gift wrapping services has steadily increased over the years and there are five reasons why this is the case.
NOT EVERYONE LIKES TO GIFT WRAP
I find it hard to believe but not everyone likes to gift wrap!!! If you don’t like giftwrapping and you like the results of your half hearted efforts even less why would you do it? Outsource the task to someone who loves it, and is good at it. Spend your valuable time on something else.
NO LEFT OVERS AND NO PAPER STORAGE
Using a gift wrapping service saves you purchasing paper, ribbon and tape (and generally much more than you need for a one off wrap). A quality gift wrapping service provides a beautifully presented gift with no left overs, no challenges of where to store that roll of paper that doesn’t quite fit anywhere and no future wrapping every single present in exactly the same paper to use the roll up.
GIFT WRAPPING TAKES LONGER THAN YOU THINK
Gift wrapping always takes W-A-Y longer than you think it will. If you have a pile of gifts to wrap you’ll need to put aside a decent amount of time especially if the gifts are all different shapes and sizes. A gift wrapping service quickly returns gifts wrapped to a consistent standard and it’s their problem if the order includes a basketball, a scooter or a large conical vase!
STAY AHEAD IN THE GIFT WRAPPING STYLE STAKES
An expert Gift wrapping service makes you a leader in the style stakes. We work really hard to have the secret squirrel inside running on where to source the finest and latest release papers and ribbons – like an interior designer for your gifts. It’s also our job to know which papers are made from sustainably grown forests and which papers to avoid all together – such as papers with glitter, plastic coating or flocked paper.
GIFT WRAPPING IS PERFECT FOR CORPORATE GIFTING
A gift wrapping service is perfect for corporate gifting and events. The day of the one size fits all gift basket is long gone as corporate gifting reaches a whole new level of client personalisation. It’s the same trend seen in large scale corporate events. Expert Gift wrapping can turn a guest gift into a branding and table styling statement.
WE’RE STAYING BUSY GIFT WRAPPING
These are the top five reasons but of course there’s many more – like meeting lots of lovely people and business owners and giving lots of talented people a chance to be part of our gift wrapping team.
All of which means the new year isn’t such a quiet time for a gift wrapping service after all! There’s plenty of pressure to keep up to date on trends, colours and styles for all sorts of occasions as well as pressure to keep practising those wrapping skills. You just never know when you’re going to be asked to wrap a French horn.
