Gift Baskets and Bulk Orders

When I received my first custom order I was shocked. Someone wants me to do a custom order? To say I wasn’t prepared for that kind of order at the very beginning of my business was a huge understatment. The customer asked for 6 glycerin soaps in a gift basket for his sister, a birthday gift basket. I still remember that Saturday, running around looking for the perfect basket. I had about 50 different ideas in mind until I came across the one I use today. The basket I use is a tote that resembles a hand basket at a grocery store, only cuter! The best part is it’s reusable so it can carry around all kinds of little items! It’s a great size that can fit 3-6 of my glycerin soaps. I imagine it would be great for wax tarts too.

Just a few days ago I was given another surprise- a bulk order. It wasn’t a wholesale order for a business or anything! One of my customers who purchased my Moroccan Mint wax tarts loved them so much she wanted to buy way more! 7 to be exact! When you love something you really love something! I think bulk orders are a great idea. You can stockpile your favorite scents or give them as gifts to friends and family. Nobody can say no to wax tarts!

Since I’ve opened I’ve done 3 gift baskets and this recent bulk order. I’m happy to accept custom and bulk orders for my business! I’m more prepared now and I enjoy the learning experience of building great gift baskets. I can’t wait for my next gift basket order! Hopefully a summer birthday is around the corner!
