This local business is making the corporate gift-giving world a little more personal with individualized baskets designed to fit each client’s personality. Read on for more.
The next time you’re looking for a gift, let Abby Workman make it personal.
Workman is the Founder and Owner of Favorites, a gift business that’s focused on creating personalized, thoughtful gifts that go beyond the standard food basket or gift card.
“Most of my customers are professionals: real estate agents, attorneys, accountants, and other service-oriented businesses looking for ways to show clients their appreciate and enhance their overall service experience,” says Workman.
Gifts from Favorites are all packaged and ready to give, saving you time, money, and energy, while also helping your gifts to stand out.
Workman’s idea for Favorites goes back to the thought that everyone loves a personalized gift. Whether it’s a monogram, an address, an important date, or the reflection of a hobby, gifts that are personalized can be more impactful and communicate to someone just how much you care.
“I have found that people have the desire to be thoughtful gift-givers, they just lack the time, creativity, and resources,” says Workman. “That’s where I come in. I create thoughtful gifts that allow customers to show their appreciation while focusing on what they do best.”
The one-woman shop gives Workman the independence she needs to be the owner, brainstormer, gift-creator, wrapper, and delivery service all in one. “This allows me to oversee all the aspects of my business to ensure that each gift will be someone’s Favorite,” she adds.
One of the most favorite things customers enjoy the most about Workman’s business is that the store comes to them.
“I meet with them where convenient and learn a little more about their gift recipient and budget before heading out to craft the ideal gift,” she explains. “Being intentional and thoughtful about what to give an important person demonstrates how much you care and can yield much higher returns than a generic, one-size-fits-all solution.”
Gift baskets from Favorites varies depending on what each client wants in them, but most prices range from $75 to $150.
In addition to gift baskets, Favorites also offers a selection of personalized stationery, paper products, cups, and promotional items.
Workman strives to find the personality within each recipient while she creates the gift – making sure to include colors, fonts, types of monograms, and more that will fit a customer’s personality.
“Each gift is packaged with a personalized tag and is ready to give,” she says. “In some cases, the gifts can be delivered directly to the customers’ home or office. Favorites makes gift-giving simple and accessible.”
Workman says that she’s looking forward to 2019 and continuing to find firms and professionals that want to stand out from their competition to wow clients and customers.
