This post is in partnership with Greetabl, but as always all opinions are my own! I'm also a real Greetabl customer, so feel free to ask me any questions you'd like answered honestly via DM on @CharlestonWeekender.
When it comes to gift giving (my main love language), I always tend to try to stick to a few rules of thumb. Greetabl is a company I very often turn to for a snail-mail option, that also happens to check off all my gift-giving musts. Of course I still have PLENTY of times where I wind up scrambling to send something to an out of town loved one on the day of said celebration (sorry Dad!), but Greetabl has really become one of my go-tos for birthdays, client thank-you gifts, and SO many other occasions! Read this until the end so you can see one of the things I'm gifting my fabulous biz parter Mimi (of The Tiny Tassel) for her upcoming birthday. I'll also give you details on an offer/discount Greetabl let me share with you! Ok, now for some gifting tips:
- It's All in the Presentation -
I've always been a fan of the above Bree Van de Camp mantra, which also happens to help me appear to be a great hostess despite my lack of cooking skills! I've always been a proponent of wowing your guests with your presentation- that is all you need to make a memorable evening, am I right?! The same really holds true for gifting. There is so much to be said for cute wrapping, addressing your envelope in hand lettering (or your attempt at it), etc. When you send a Greetabl, the packaging is super duper cute and will make the recipient smile in itself! Your pal will open the box and see an adorable cube in a print you chose for them (like this confetti one I picked for Mimi). You can also see the Leslie Knope one I've gifted here. You're basically winning before they even opened it up.
- Make it Personal -
Greetabl is personalized in more ways than one: pick your gift box print, pick 3 Instagram or camera roll photos to add to the inside, and add a custom message, too! So even though it doesn't have an ounce of your hand writing or involve you spending your time at the post office (my VERY least favorite thing!), it's got that element of customization that makes everyone feel special. How cute do these photos of Mimi & I look with the confetti print I picked for her!?
- It's the Thought That Counts -
I would LOVE to just be able to gift all of my friends the fanciest of schmanciest goodies. However, for most occasions I need to stay in the under $30 price range (especially for client gifts & such). Check out some of the cute gifts they offer that range from an $8-12 add-on! All in all, the last few Greetabls I've sent have cost me $20-25 (including shipping & the gift that comes inside).
So below is the gift I picked for Mimi! She already sells cute piñatas in ours shop, so I went with the "tiny celebration" confetti of course! It's not like we don't see an abundance of confetti around our shop, but I mean who can really have too much confetti?!
