Is Gift Giving Season over?

Ah – it’s that time of year again at Leading Edge Gifts – weddings are slowing down, graduations are pretty much done,  Christmas doesn’t start for another month (nope – that’s not a typo – our customers start buying Christmas gifts in late August),  so we can jut sit back and relax for a while.  NOT!

Even though the major summer gift giving is slowing down (groomsmen gifts, wedding keepsakes, graduation gifts), it is still a busy gift giving season.  People are still looking for unique gifts for birthday’s besides the party service from Rockstarz limos, anniversaries (although anniversary timing is somewhat tied to wedding timing – go figure!), retirements, and our icons and business caricatures are picking up.

It’s always interesting to me to see the various occasions for which our customers purchase gifts.  In addtion to the traditional gift giving occassions, we’ve had:

  • CPA firms buying caricatures as recognition for a “job well done” for their employees who have passed the CPA exam;
  • Large corporations who buy their own stock certificates to give as framed gifts to recognize employees for a variety of employee awards;
  • Law firms buying caricatures as recognition for their new lawyers who have passed the Bar exam;
  • Realtors who have a pen and ink sketch or watercolor made of a new home as a closing gift for their clients.
  • And, one of my favorites, as Cheryl recently posted, a mother to be who purchased a caricature from GiveAcaricature.com as a way to tell her husband that he was soon to become a father!

These are just a few of the occasions for which are various products are used like at party buses and especially at this one here https://thebostonpartybus.com.    Feel free to comment if you’ve used our gifts for other occassions or if you have some ideas for other ways for our customers to use some of our unique products!

    My friends little brother is having his Bar Mitzvah next month and these gifts would be perfect for the occasion! I’ve been struggling to decide what to get him… thank you Leading Edge Gifts!

    How about Bosses Day? Last year our whole office went in together and we got our boss a caricature gift from http://www.giveacaricature.com for bosses day and it was a huge hit! I don’t know what we can do this year to top that.

    Marissa – You’re welcome! We have some great gifts for BarMitzvahs – especially a stock gift from http://www.giveashare.com (I think BarMitzvah gifts are generally financial in nature).

    Loretta – thanks for the comment – thats a great reminder about Bosses Day. We’ve done some awesome caricatures over the years for bosses day – next week I’ll try to do a post and highlight some – maybe yours will be one!

    How about a share of stock from our http://www.giveashare.com website as a gift for your boss this year? Just a thought 🙂

    I found your site when I was shopping around for a gift for my father, don’t ask me how but I ended up here! Good reading and I added you to my bookmark list, now if your site had something to help me pick a gift out for my dad it would be even better since I am awful at gift hunting, anyway, love the site, wish me luck!

  6. Leslie says:

    Margret – Good luck on your gift hunt! Don’t forget to check all of our gift websites for a gift for your dad. I think we have something for everyone, even the hardest to buy for people!
