Some time ago, I saw a discussion in the Etsy forums about sellers including gifts in their packaging. I was surprised to find that there were both sellers and buyers opposed to it.
In most cases, I include a gift of some sort. Not food, but something small and inexpensive. Linens, I wrap in acid-free tissue and tuck in a small lavender sachet. It doesn't cost much: the bags come from Dollar Tree and I grow the lavender. And who doesn't like scented linens?
Gifts with other items vary.
Sometimes it's a bookmark.
They're easily made and can be marked with a shop name. It's more useful, in my opinion, than a business card.
Sometimes I include note cards. This one I picked up in a pack of 8 from Dollar Tree.
With a little embellishment, it becomes a pretty cool card!
It too can be marked with a shop name.
I'd be interested in hearing what others think both about receiving a gift with purchase and about the ones I've shown. Are they a waste of the small amount of time and money I invest or would you appreciate them?
Thanks for your input.
