Business Basics: Giving a Meaningful Thank You
Savvy business people know that an appropriate business gift provides both a personal touch and a tangible symbol of meaningful thanks. Our Royal Riviera® Pears, gourmet chocolate truffles and baskets of savory snacks are wildly popular gifts. That’s because when you get a gift that’s so fancy and delicious and beautifully wrapped, it makes you feel pretty darn special. It’s so nice to feel appreciated. Undoing the hand tied bow and digging into your goodies makes your heart glow. Maybe even bring a tear to your eye. It’s just that special to be thanked. Business psychiatrist Mark Goulston, MD, reports that no one is immune to the motivating effects of acknowledgement and thanks. Research shows that saying thank you results in “reciprocal generosity,” which is another term for business building. That’s where Harry & David and our awesome gourmet gifts come in. Our gifts strengthen relationships. “We have Business Gift Specialists that hand hold our clients through the entire process.” Stephen Sloan, the director of our Business Gift Division summarizes the business gifting process this way: “They help you select gifts that fit your budget and match the occasion. They ensure the gift is personalized to your tastes. That could mean a basic greeting card or an entire gift with customized contents, wrapping and ribbon. Picture a gift with your logo, slogan and product sample. You can be as creative as you want. Our gift specialist will make it happen. They’ll also arrange shipping so your gift arrives on a certain date, and can manage lot shipments to save on costs.” Business Gift Specialist Deb B. started out packing gift baskets 25 years ago. In recent years, she’s seen our Business-to-Business service team nearly double in size. Deb says she’s helped customers with “just about every reason there is for sending corporate gifts.” For those of us that work at Harry & David it is very gratifying knowing that we’re providing good vibe experiences to hundreds of people everyday. Each parcel we send out includes hearty smiles from Southern Oregon. Keep it simple or go all out. Send a simple thank-you treat like a gourmet chocolate truffle in a gold box or an elaborate “buffet in a basket” feast.
