Who doesn’t love checking into your hotel room and there is a welcome gift at the door waiting for you? Whether you are traveling for a corporate meeting, or an out of town wedding, a welcome basket is always an affordable way to be, well, welcomed! As an event planner, I always recommend a welcome basket – it saves money for your guests, is a classy way to say thanks for traveling all the way here, and most importantly, won’t break your bank!
A gift basket (a reasonable one, remember our past blog on frivolous spending) is a perfect welcome amenity, celebration gift or thank you item. And of course, I have to give a shout out to Lambs & Ivy (http://www.lambsandivygiftbaskets.com/) – it’s a great family run business that creates one of a kind gift baskets based on what YOU need. Oh yes, and most importantly…they donate 5% of their profits to local charities…they are helping you to look like a great friend or employer, as well as making an impact on the community!
