We were approached by 365 Hair, who provide successful business coaching to salons, to create a gift to present to delegates at their two-day Spring Business Boutique. They wanted to make their guests feel special and to enhance the experience of the boutique, creating a lasting memory. We have worked with 365 Hair a number of times so we were delighted to be asked to work on this project having already established a good relationship with them and an understanding of the sort of gift that would be appropriate.
A gift was required that felt personal and would reflect the close relationship that 365 Hair has with its members.
The Boutique was being held at Fawsley hall - a historical hotel in the Northamptonshire countryside.
The Boutique’s branding literature has a white and sage green colour scheme.
A number or ideas were put forward and the gift that was chosen as the most appropriate was a curated set of pieces to encourage the recipient to take a moment to themselves. All elements of the gift were made in the UK as a reflection of the beautiful historic Fawsley Hall which was the venue for the event.
The gift included a fine bone china mug, handmade in Stoke. The mug was in all white featuring a geometric design deemed to be most appropriate for all guests’ tastes. To go with this there was a sample of cornish grown tea - a rarity and talking point! And finally to encourage a bit of ‘me-time’ for the guests there was a jar of hemp and patchouli hand balm handmade in Yorkshire to soothe fingers after a long day’s cutting.
The gift wrapping scheme reflected the colour scheme used by the client for the event. We used a white keepsake gift box and sage green grosgrain ribbon. Then using 365 Hair branded tissue paper and sealing sticker inside. We also included a bespoke gift card with a note to guests.
The gifts were given on day two of the event at the tables where the guests enjoyed various activities and presentations. They were well received and we were delighted to see that some guests featured the gift on social media.
"From the professionalism we receive from yourselves from the very start, the creative ideas you come up with, the wonderful wrapping, and right through to the gifts that we chose – just exceptional!"
"Loved the gifts"
“Lovely, thank you!”
“Brilliant! Loved them, amazing wrapping!”
