November for me has always been a strange month; it is the calm before the Christmas storm so to speak.
It is however in reality, a great time for me to get organised and mentally prepare for the busy weeks ahead. I am able to plan, restock and deal with the increased number of customer service enquiries which grace my doorstep.
While orders are still coming in, generally November for retailers is nowhere near as hectic as December - in particular the last couple of weeks prior to Christmas.
For me the last week before Christmas is actually extremely pleasant as I am officially on holiday - Rainbow Designs' Christmas cut-off date is the 17 December. If we left it any later, there would be a lot of unhappy campers amongst us as the orders would not be guaranteed to arrive before Christmas Day. As it is, the postal workers and courier companies are already working overtime in preparation for the festive holiday.
So today I thought I would share with you two new products which are available for the Christmas season.
The first is our Nuts About Christmas Hamper. It comes already packed in a gift box and includes Christmas blend coffee, macadamia nut fudge, honey roasted cashews, a brownie bite and a pack of organic licorice. Delicious, right?
The second gift is our Santa's Puppy Pack. It features an adorable Joyce & Co puppy dog, Freckleberry chocolate Christmas tree and 20 chocolate baubles. Imagine the surprise on Christmas morning when they open that one. Again it comes already packaged in a lovely gift hamper box for ease.
I hope that this time of year is not proving to be too stressful for you. We aim to take the stress out of Christmas with our delicious range of gifts and hampers, so if we can help you in way, just give us a shout!
