Gifts to Thank a Realtor
When planning a gift basket to thank a realtor, it's helpful to think of things that will be helpful for pros on the go. One great example to include is a personalized tumbler/travel thermos along with an assortment of drink mixes, teas and instant coffees. Pros on the go always need snacks so include lots of delicious snacks and treats for your special realtor. You can also include gift cards for local eateries or coffee shops. Don't forget about technology gifts such as a solar powered cell phone charger or rechargeable bluetooth speakers. For the realtor who has been in the biz for a long time, go with a personalized date book or engraved business card case. And of course, a great testimonial on Google, Zillow or other platform goes great with any gift.

Employee Recognition Occasions
There are many reasons and occasions to treat one of your employees (or several) to a special gift. When employees feel appreciated, you reduce employee turnover and boost the morale of the whole team. Here are some of the many occasions to show your appreciation for your terrific employees:
Letting your employees know you care and support them on their special days and all of the events of their lives creates a more loyal and productive team as well as better relationships with your employees. One great option is a gift basket, especially when it is customized for that specific employee to include their favorite colors, favorite snacks, favorite beverages and decorative elements with their initials or other symbols.
What to Put in Your Employee Gift Basket
There are tons of options you can choose from when putting together a gift basket for your employees. You can include snacks like crackers, chips, trail mix and chocolates. You can include cheeses, sausages, mustards, spreads, jams, preserves and marmalades. Add their favorite beverage such as soda, tea, sparkling water, coffee or energy drinks. You can also include non-food and beverage items such as personalized mugs, personalized office supplies, decorative items and a special message from you. Of course, when delivered in a reusable bin, basket, bag or box, they'll also get use out of the beautiful container too.
Let your employees know you care with customized gift baskets from Cielo Gift Baskets. You'll get a tasteful and thoughtful arrangement of all of their favorites and some unique and special touches to let them know just how appreciated they are.

So I grew up in the 80's, yep, back when MTV was a real music channel and kids used to scratch their knees while playing outside! Back in those days the idea of giving a gift card was... kind of unknown.
Today, that's a different picture.
You will never find us, Cielo Gift Baskets, "talking trash" about gift cards and/or gift cards givers, since we are loyal promoters of all shades of gratitude, kindness, love, gifting, and care, but you will find us pushing your gifting skills a little more.
Please allow me to explain myself: we believe that, yes, a gift card is a nice and thoughtful gift, as long as it's accompanied by something else, and by something else we mean, fun snacks the gift recipient enjoys, customized home items, some great wine and cheese, delicious hummus and crackers, etc.
Gift card givers have had the bad reputation of being impersonal or lazy givers. If you are a gift card giver, please know that we do not feel that way about you, we just feel we can help you! You are on the right track, the gifting track, you just need to tweak it a little more, and that's where we come in.
The holidays are here, they are not around the corner, they are not arriving soon, they are here, and the time to get ready is NOW! So, think about all those important clients, potential clients, great partners, amazing donors, essential investors, helpful members of your community, accountable employees, wonderful friends and family members, you would like to put a smile on their faces, tell us which store you'd like to do a gift card for, we will get it for you, add it to a gorgeous, customized gift basket, and we will even deliver it right to their home or office, all because you CARE about them ... Happy Holidays and let's give away gratitude and kindness!
Sometimes, when we attend networking events or meet new potential clients, I ask:
"so what are you currently giving to your customers and/or partners" and many times the response is: "nothing". To be honest with you all, this doesn't surprise me. Many individuals/companies do not see the need for "gifting", UNTIL ..... they see the amazing results!

My childhood was absolutely perfect, the only thing that was missing was a pet,,, boohoo, how "miserable" we were! Our parents were just normal, middle-class people, that worked hard to give their 3 daughters a good, healthy life, and God knows they certainly did.
I remember, from a very early age, my Papa, taking me to the nearest town, Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, on Christmas week, and telling me: "Chiqui, today is YOUR day, you can choose whatever doll, accessories for her, clothing, anything!" oh my God, was I the happiest little girl on Earth or what?!
My Mama, on the other hand, would not indulge me in the madness of consumerism! ;) She would instead focus on the small details .... the pretty pink ribbon tied on a book, or the sweet, sudden "no reason" note left for me next to my toast in the morning saying "I love you, have an awesome day!"
Throughout my life, I had enjoyed to give gifts, way more than receiving them, and I have been able to combine both of my parents styles. So, when I finally decided to start my own business, I made the commitment of transmitting the same joy, the same peace my parents showered me with growing up, and there was only one way to do that, with a GIFTING business ... so there you have it, that was my reason ...
