I thought the holiday season wouldn’t affect my small business. I was wrong. It’s challenging to find time for holiday shopping, sending out cards, and my business.
Do you send out holiday gifts or greetings to your customers? I always send a holiday greeting to my clients. You can automate the greeting card process by using a service like SendOut Cards or Paperless Post.
Agonize over what to send clients or your work team? Fret no more as there are sites that allow the giftee to choose. Snappy allows your team members to select a gift they want from a curated collection within your budget.
More choices abound to please your clients and your budget. Sugarwish lets you pick the bag size of candy or popcorn treats, and your client gets to choose their favorite candy or popcorn to fill the box.
Gyft’s all-in-one card allows the recipient to choose the card, but you specify the dollar amount. Or you can bulk order specific brand gift cards to give out.
Prefer to choose the gift but not wade through miles of choices? Giftree offers gift baskets, with personalization, for every occasion and holiday. Their holiday collection is ready to go.
Giftagram provides a concierge to curate gifts for your clients. Fill out the online form with your gift requirements, and you’re on the way to finishing your holiday business shopping.
Need help to organize your gift list? Try an app such as Gifster. If the giftee joins, they let you know what gifts they want. This holiday season, all these apps can take the stress out of giving.
