Giving Thanks

Giving ThanksThe traditional annual time for giving thanks is approaching quickly. (Of course, that doesn’t mean that we can’t remember to express our gratitude throughout the year.) Writer G.K. Chesterton once stated, “When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.” With gratitude. In fact, that feeling is so much engrained in this business endeavor of ours that we made “gratitude” part of our name. Yes, it’s that important to us.

Showing Your Appreciation by Giving Thanks

At Gratitude Goodies, we have the professional experience, the drive, and the creativity to help you with your corporate gift giving needs. As a business person, we understand that your days may be generally hectic. We know…overseeing projects & personnel, tackling the many issues that arise daily, and keeping the ship on course. While this may be true, it doesn’t mean that help is not available to you when it comes to expressing your gratitude to valued clients and employees.

Your Gratitude Go-To Team

Presently, Gratitude Goodies is highly geared up to assist you with your end-of-year corporate gift giving. Like busy elves, we’ve been laying the groundwork for months now! So, no matter the size or volume of your holiday corporate gift budget, we’ve got you covered. And not just the run-of-the-mill stuff. Indeed, we have unique gifting solutions such as our Sweet Georgia Hamper and Georgia Gable Box; these themed beauties feature tempting treats with a Southern flair. Think mouth-watering Georgia peaches, pecans, and Vidalias. Oh, and plenty of chocolate too! Custom orders are certainly welcome.

Being thankful… While we’re at it, please know that we are ever grateful for your patronage. Thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!

Professional Development

Professional Development & the WBENC

Diane & Marion of Gratitude Goodies

At Gratitude Goodies, we’re always seeking opportunities for professional development. By the way, did you know that we’re a women-owned business? In fact, we are! Actually, you would probably already figure correctly that being a women-owned business has its special challenges. Indeed, that’s all-the-more reason for us to find new avenues to make ourselves the best we can be. Regardless of gender.

WBENC-Certified

Case in point, we are proud to announce that we are now WBENC-certified! The US Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) “is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women.” As a result, our certification adds extra value to your business dealings with us. Further, it holds us to a high level of integrity and professionalism. For additional info about this organization, please visit their website at www.wbenc.org. Incidentally, they’re celebrating 20 years of success this year!

Upping Our Game with Professional Development

With our WBENC certification, we will expand our business relationship base. How? By continually striving for the highest standards of performance. Of course, when we do so it becomes an upward spiral. Furthermore, it creates a positive feedback loop. And as a matter of fact, one of the greatest benefits of certification is that it allows us to gain access to major corporations who are looking to partner with women-owned businesses. Yes…women-owned businesses across all industries. (Of course, we’ve often discussed the great value in word-of-mouth advertising. Indeed, it’s no different here. Return customers and referrals. No doubt, these are so important to any business. Otherwise, it’s just crickets…)

Corporate Holiday Gift Planning

Okay now, switching gears. In upcoming articles, we’ll be popping in to offer advice on easing your corporate holiday gift-giving woes. Stay tuned!

As always, thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!

Beat the Back-to-School Blues

Back-to-School Blues BusterIt’s back-to-school time again. Sure, it still feels like the dog days of summer. Perhaps you’ve had the most delightfully lazy hazy season, but it’s time once again to sharpen those pencils and crack open those books. [Indeed, you can almost hear the massive collective sigh from all the students and educators out there.]

Use Your Bean

OK. We ask you now to put on your thinking caps and “use your bean” here.  Actually plural…beans. Two of our favorite beans to be exact. Namely, the heady I-can’t-start-my-day-without-my-coffee bean and its brother, the divine cocoa bean. As in, “Administer chocolate, STAT!” Noted psychologist Merrill Elias states, “We found that people who eat chocolate at least once a week tend to perform better cognitively.” Actually, there’s no need to find an excuse to partake (as if we need one); as a matter of fact, we have scientific proof of chocolate’s benefits!

A+ Gourmet Gifts

We can help you enhance your fave students’ or teachers’ study or paper-grading time with our Coffee ‘n’ Chocolate Basket – this beauty includes a quality assortment of hand-picked items themed around this dynamic duo. And not to leave out our tea-loving folks (since tea is the Number Two-ranked beverage in the world), we proudly offer our Time For Tea Basket, which features a charming porcelain tea set with civilized and tempting accoutrements.

Back-To-School Joy

In any case, going back to school doesn’t have to be glum. Through an act of kindness, you can lift moods – yours and theirs! Order your gourmet gift basket today by visiting us at www.GratitudeGoodies.com or by giving us a call.

And of course, it’s not too early to start planning your end-of-year holiday gift giving. As always, thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!

Saying Sorry the Sweet Way

georgia_hamper_largeTo Err Is Human

Of course, saying sorry can often be difficult. Yet, who among us has not made a mistake at work? For example, like missing an important deadline? Or inadvertently displeasing a customer or client? Odds are, all of us have done something in our professional lives that would merit an apology. Let’s face it – it happens. We’re all human and it’s no reason for shame. Now what?

Making It Right by Saying Sorry

Okay, it’s done. The mistake has been made. Sure, there are many elements of damage control for your business relationships. But, the bottom line is showing your business associates or clients that you bravely acknowledge responsibility for the error. First, it lets them know that you’re aware of the ramifications of the faux pas. In addition, it shows that you own up to it and are willing to make efforts not to repeat the mistake in the future. What better way to express your apology than through a thoughtful gift?

Apology Accepted

Indeed, Gratitude Goodies can help you with saying sorry to those clients and customers when a project or goal has gone off course. Our customized, gourmet gift baskets can help convey your heartfelt sincerity about the gaff. To that end, we have an abundance of sweet or savory options  – all tastefully designed to meet your needs and budget. Call us or click on over today to show your commitment to make things right with a thoughtful “We’re Sorry” gift basket. As you know, we’re here for you to help mend those fences. One tasty treat at a time.

As ever, how may we help you?

We thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!

Making A List…

Making a ListThis summer, Santa is making a list and you should be, too. Certainly, it’s not too early to start pondering your end-of-year gift giving strategy. Especially if you’ve promised yourself that this year you’ll have it planned well in advance. In fact, Gratitude Goodies is here year-round for all your gourmet gift basket needs.

The A-List

Although making your gift giving list may seem daunting – “What level of spending for who?” – we find it’s easier if you make a three-tiered list. First, think of all the potential gift recipients and write down their names. Who do you want to show that you appreciate your business relationship? Or, to whom do want to express that what they do matters?

Making a List – Your ABCs

Okay, so you’ve got your full list. Next, determine your overall gift giving budget. You don’t want any surprises for (or from) Accounting. Now, here’s where you set to the task of sorting your full list into tiers…your List A, List B, and List C. If you find that you need more tiers to suit your needs, go for it. Add as many as you like. Then, assign a dollar amount per gift for each tier or list you’ve created.

Gourmet Gift Baskets for All

Finally, you just pick up the phone and call the gift basket design professionals at Gratitude Goodies. Since all of your front legwork is done, you can rest easy knowing that each person on your lists will receive a thoughtful expression of your gratitude. Go ahead and put our many years of experience in the gourmet gift basket business to work for you today! How may we help you?

As always, thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company! Happy 4th of July to all!

We totally hear you on that score, but we are busy, busy, busy…planning, planning, planning.

A Field That Is Rested

Ovid (remember him?) said, “Take rest; a field that is rested gives a bountiful crop.” By the same token , we here at Gratitude Goodies have had some quality time recently to rest & recharge our batteries. Quality time spent with cherished family and friends, filled with laughter and love. (In case you’re asking, we highly recommend something similar.) One of the results?

Planning Ahead…That Battery Bunny Has Nothing On Us

Indeed, allowing ourselves that precious time to rest has super-charged us. We are brimming with fresh ideas that we cannot wait to share with you! Ideas that will be sure to please your clients, customers, and employees. Okay, are you at a loss for creative ideas to surprise and delight them? Let your fingers do the walking and call us.

Less Taxing Tax Time

Tax_time_goodies

Tax Time Goodies

Here at Gratitude Goodies, we can help you have a less taxing tax time. This year, the income tax filing deadline is Tuesday, April 18th…a little over a month from now. While we can’t actually do your taxes, we’re here to ease some of that accounting angst.

Use Your Ol’ Bean(s) at Tax Time

How can we assist you? Easy! We can help you harness the brain-boosting powers of the divine cocoa and coffee beans. Noted psychologist Merrill Elias states, “We found that people who eat chocolate at least once a week tend to perform better cognitively.” (Who are we to argue that point?) Therefore, better cognition leads to clearer minds for figuring those 1040s & deducing deductions. Visit our website today to view a selection of our gourmet gift baskets. In fact, many feature fine chocolates to aid you with this taxing task.

Brew for Banishing Those W-2 Blues

Chocolate and coffee? Trust us, we know first-hand about the transformative properties of coffee. Our mornings would not be complete without our daily java infusion. In the same boat? Then check out our Coffee ‘n’ Chocolate Basket, which includes a quality assortment of hand-picked items themed around this dynamic duo. Dig into this gift basket and you’ll have those forms done in no time.

Of course, not to leave out our tea-loving folks (tea being the No. 2-ranked beverage in the world…topped only by water), we proudly offer our Time For Tea Basket; this lovely ensemble features a charming porcelain tea set, an assortment of fine teas, and gracious accompaniments. After all, doing your taxes doesn’t have to leave you feeling barbaric.

Show Your Accountants Some Love

However, if you have an accountant or firm handling your financial books, what better time than tax season to express your gratitude for their services? True, they work diligently throughout the year for you, providing vital information to help ensure the smooth running of your ship. But during tax season, they shift into double overdrive. And as much as your accountants may love crunching numbers, they’d also enjoy crunching & munching the contents of a specially designed gourmet gift basket from Gratitude Goodies. Get in touch with us today to show your appreciation!

As always, thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!

Although finding memorable gifts can be challenging, we ask you to avail yourselves of our extensive experience. From here on, put our gift-giving knowledge to work for you.

Beyond Conventional Convention Gifts

First off, you may need special gifts for guest speakers and esteemed guests/panel members. We know just how to make your VIPs feel all the more special with treats such as our Ultimate Chocolate Basket. What’s that you say? You’d been clued in that the keynote speaker prefers savory goodies? Not a problem for us. In fact, we have all your bases covered with tasteful gift baskets & trays – all reliably crafted and delivered.

Theme Team

Or, are you responsible for planning a themed convention? Sports-related, profession-related, hobby-related…let our expert designers work diligently with you to make a high-impact “Wow!” statement to your attendees with a convention gift that says “Welcome…we’re glad you’re here!” For example, we can craft customized swag bags, and even provide specific colors & contents to compliment your event or expo.

Turndown Gifts They Won’t Turn Down

By the same token, we’ve also got you covered if you need to source gifts for hotel guests that perfectly express thanks for their business. Again, we’re talking perfect fit here. In a number of surveys asking what they’d prefer as a hotel gift, most people responded that food and beverage gifts were most appreciated…especially if they’re representative of the area.

Our Motivation, Our Mission

Gratitude Goodies, driven to provide you with the finest corporate gift baskets and outstanding service!What drives Gratitude Goodies? What is our motivation? Simply stated, we love what we do. And we’re not just saying that because today’s Valentine’s Day. So, what do we love, what are we passionate about?

1. Helping Others is our Motivation

To start, we love to help businesses say  “thank you.” Communicating appreciation is a vital act for businesses. Did you know that the reason a whopping two-thirds of people who leave a job do so because they don’t feel appreciated? Dare we say that the same applies for client retention? Although you may be uneasy or unsure about how to show your employees & clients that their business association truly matters, Gratitude Goodies is here to help you.

2. Creating

It’s true, we love to find new ways for businesses to say “thank you.”  Going miles beyond the company-branded coffee mug or pen, Gratitude Goodies provides expert assistance in designing your custom-made gift baskets and trays. Need special ribbons, color combinations, or tailored contents? You got it! We even delight in doing our “homework.” Throughout the year, we attend the country’s finest fancy food shows to hand-select the best treats to incorporate into your exquisite gifts.

3. Making a Difference

We love to use delectable delights to create positive change. And you’ll make a difference, too, just by sharing your appreciation with tangible treats. When the recipient enjoys the gift basket you sent, it can transform your business relationship in subtle ways, making it more personal, yet still tasteful and appropriate.

4. Making Smiles

We love seeing the recipients’ reactions – what we like to call the “shock and awe” factor. They’re just going about a typical day, when in we walk with the goodies you’ve sent. Three…two…one…and there it is. Watching those warm smiles spread makes our day. In fact, we bask in this kind of thing!

5. Seeing the Cycle

Lastly, we love seeing the gift giving go full circle. For example, a client hires us to design and deliver a gift. Then, the recipient calls us to say “thank you,” and perhaps reorders and reengages. Indeed, referring and connecting clients is so fulfilling; strengthening our business community is of prime importance to us.

As ever, thank you for making us Atlanta’s #1 signature gift basket company!
