Today was a super busy day for Custom Gifts by Talina! It all started with some really cute stuff that I found a while back. I had the idea to make up a really nice mothers day gift basket to add to my inventory. I found a cute porcelain teapot/ tea cup duet with a matching saucer and this photo frame pillow that read “mother”. I bought them and began constructing a basket around these cute items.
While I was shopping around for items to accompany my teapot and pillow I was amazed at the lack of mothers day gifts in the stores around town. I even went to the local walmart figuring they would have an entire isle dedicated to the holiday like they usual do for any commerical holiday.. To my surprise all they had were some wilted plants for mothers day. It was as if mothers day did not exist.
Eventually I found the items I needed, got the basket ready to go and took some photos for my website listing. In the last 24 hours I have had 5 orders for the mothers day basket that I designed and initially bought only enough supplies for one basket.. I spent the entire day gathering up items for the other 4 gift baskets. It was fun to shop all day and it was surprising to get such a rush for mothers day baskets. I guess my success today is due to the fact that so many places in town did not offer extensive mothers day gifts..
I can whip up nice gifts on short notice, it’s really a convenience to my customers. I take care of the last minute stuff so they don’t have to.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the days news and gift basket photos!
