So, when it comes to the busy holiday season, would you say you tend to be on top of things or do you leave things to the last minute? Truth be told, if more people were honest when asked, it's probable that a great majority of people tend to leave things to the last minute, which means that holiday gift baskets tend to arrive later than they should or don't get done at all.
It doesn't have to be this way. The first step in taking your holiday gift basket game to the next level is dispelling the myth that you can throw anything into a basket & give it away.
Look at the way the pros put together their baskets. There's thought in every part of the basket even down to the cellophane that covers the final product.
Also, if we're being honest, gift baskets, and corporate gifting as a whole, are kind of a mixed bag in terms of how well they really convey a message. You really need to think about your customer and what it is they may actually like.
Perhaps the best advice any new entrepreneur can get regarding holiday gift baskets is to plan as early as possible. Procrastination not only invites shoddy-looking results, but you could be extremely limited to what you have available to you.
Holiday gift baskets should be more than just a collection of random things. They should be a reflection of your thoughtfulness in knowing your customer's favorite things & knowing how to best combine them. No matter the holiday or time of year, just be sure to plan early.
