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.

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.

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.

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!

Planning Ahead

santa_beachHello, and welcome to summer! (At times, it seemed like it would never get here.) Even as many of you folks are starting to get ready for vacation, Gratitude Goodies is planning ahead for the coming season. Sure, it’s summertime…and time for a little rest & relaxation, right? 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.

Blooming Baskets and Boxes

Blooming Baskets and BoxesIt’s almost summer and we have blooming baskets and boxes to delight your clients! No matter what the spring weather has been in your neighborhood, Gratitude Goodies has the ability to bring the joys of this sprouting season to you. That’s right. We have a bountiful selection of gourmet treats, any of which can be adorned with floral accents. Our expert design specialists will listen to your needs and create just the right gifts to help your business grow.

Cultivating Strong Business Connections

Personally, do you like to have your accomplishments and/or business relationships recognized? Of course you do, it’s human nature. Consequently, it stands to reason that your associates and clients would very much like to feel they’re appreciated as well. By giving tasteful, personalized corporate gifts – such as those from Gratitude Goodies – you’re showing your sincere appreciation. But be forewarned of a possible (desired) side effect; a well-tended “garden” is likely to produce a bumper crop.

Blooming Baskets for Healthy Roots

For example, let’s think about your company’s roots. Not to be neglected, your company’s client base and employees need nourishment. Studies show that sending something thoughtful at least once a year – especially if it’s unexpected – keeps you in their minds throughout the year. After all, the people who help make your company great are priceless. In fact, they can help make your business even more fruitful.

How May We Help You Sow Seeds of Gratitude?

And if you want to go above & beyond the garden variety of treats to show your appreciation, call Diane or Marian today to get started. Oh. In July, we’ll be attending a special convention. Ultimately, we’re always learning new ways to surprise and delight our customers! Stay tuned for details.

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