The Christmas Party Show

Creating Memorable Experiences

This year we were delighted to be a part of the Christmas Party Show. Hosting a bauble making workshop and a seminar we demonstrated what it takes to create memorable experiences in events.

Celebrations & Rewards

Recognising clients with thoughtful gifts

Whether you are marking a birthday or celebrating a referral, investment or house-move.  These can be really personal moments for your client where your thoughtfulness will really stand out and be appreciated.  The end result? A strengthened relationship and increased advocacy from your clients.

Instagramable Christmas Table

Tables to lust over

For me the Christmas table setting is almost as important as the food. It's the time to be creative and bold, and most importantly to have some fun. 

We explore three completely different looks: Luxe, White and Nordic to inspire you this Christmas.

Vicky's Amazing Trifle

A yummy twist on a traditional trifle
Who doesn’t love a trifle?  We love to serve one up to whoever is around on Boxing Day.  Perfect party food when served in individual glasses as pictured or for the family in one big dish.  

Try this family friendly recipe with white chocolate and raspberries.

Connecting with Corporate Gifts

The Devil is in the Detail

As I work on one of our bespoke business gift orders today, it strikes me how, even with the simplest of projects, once you start paying attention to the details the gift really evolves into something else entirely.

Choosing Great Business Gifts

It's Not Me It's You

It’s the eternal dilemma of gift giving, and nowhere more so than with Christmas business gifts. You desperately want to give your recipient something they will love, that resonates and is very them, whilst simultaneously being a reflection of you and your tastes and preferences.

Growing Gifts

a place in the sun

We all learnt about it at school. The cycle of growing.  I still remember drawing that diagram depicting photosynthesis.. ..that care and attention for such valuable reward is such a good metaphor for a successful business it’s almost embarrassing…  

A Write Off

A Love Letter to Stationery

Rummage. Not a word I wish to associate with how I conduct myself in business. Or any other setting for that matter. Yet here I find myself, in meeting with a prospective client for the first time and I need something to write with.

In the Event

Planning for summer events & parties

...Nothing much changes now.  Whilst not quite 9 months ahead we are in the thick of proposing the perfect gifts for summer events.

Luxury Event Planning

With Amy Burleigh -Raspberry Rhubarb

We recently sat down with luxury event planner Amy Burleigh of Raspberry Rhubarb to get some top tips on how to plan a super luxe event. Here’s what we found out...

Bespoke Business Gifts

The Quaglino's Effect

It was the quintessential 90’s party hangout.  Quaglino’s, under Conran ownership continued the tradition of the restaurant combining great food with a raucous atmosphere that made it synonymous with a good time for nearly 10 years.

Hands Up Who Buys Champagne

We think your money could be better spent
Hands up who buys champagne, wine or chocolates for their clients or employees at Christmas? Yeah, I thought so. I don’t blame you, there are lots of places out there that make it easy and, after all, it’s kind of what people expect.

Business Gifts

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
There were about 8 of us. Gathered in the very corporate board room of one of the UK’s leading cosmetics distributors. We were there for the bi-annual strategy presentation for a premium beauty brand known for its personalised approach to meeting customer’s needs.

Shaken Not Stirred

The Gilded Bee #1

What makes a cocktail?  This was the topic of conversation on a recent night out.  We addressed the barman -surely an authority on these things.  He declared his favourite to be a Jagerbomb so his opinion was quickly disregarded.

That's a Wrap

Gift-wrapping to Impress

The whisper-woosh as the ribbon is tugged free, the frenzied tear of the tissue and rumage through shredded paper.  A quiet yet special moment of anticipation as a gift is revealed.  Getting there, however is not always so treasured...

Christmas Decoration Trends 2017

Style inspiration for this holiday season

With Christmas just around the corner we’re getting very excited about this year’s decoration trends.  Here are some that we’ve spotted which are easy to recreate.

Christmas Gifts For Employees

Tips and tricks for shopping for staff

Its that time of year again to start thinking about what to get your staff for Christmas.

When we asked business owners what they typically get their staff each year the answer was a chorus of 'champagne, wine, chocolates'. 

Perfectly Presented

Gift-wrapping Tutorial

So you've spent so much time time on choosing the gift that you've run out of time to think about how to wrap it.  Never mind... Wrong! How the gift is presented can be almost as important as the gift itself.

Blooming Flowers

Fantastic alternative gifts to flowers

We all love flowers, but do we all love them as gifts? We think there are certain times when flowers are often given when a much more appreciated and suitable gift would have been preferred.

Looking Back & Moving Forward

Gilded Bee turns 1!

To think that this time last year Gilded Bee was barely a glimmer in mine & Emily’s eyes’.   We were reflecting on a Christmas of crazy bauble making...
