Gifting Season

Gifting Season – Yabulela Gift Hampers

Here we are again at this time of the year when the gifting season always seems to become a roller coaster ride for suppliers, businesses, and clients alike. No matter how well one tries to plan there will always be those last-minute orders arriving. As well as the impossible gift requests to do at short notice. But here at Yabulela Gift Hampers we really do try and make every effort to assist anyone that requests a gift from us over the fast-paced gifting season.

Even those who land at our doorstep with an urgent and short-notice gift order. While not always possible to assist a client in the specified time frame, we do our best to get as close as possible.

 

Gifting Season – Christmas Time

This is never more true than over the year-end gifting season period. And we believe that this year will not be much different than any before. We will most likely see that sudden spurt of international gift orders arriving on our desks just before we close. We love to assist our international clients in any way we can as often they cannot be with family and friends over the Festive Season every year.

Where we can, we try to assist within 24 hours of the gift being ordered and paid for in full, pending stock availability on our shelves at the time. This is not always possible when we hit the peak gift season, but we still do our very best to help out where we can.

And it’s a really proud moment when we manage to create a gorgeous gift in a matter of hours to assist our clients from all over the world. Connecting People One Gift at A Time Across South Africa is truly what we love to do and achieve for our clients.

 

The Creative Process of Gifting

Compiling a custom-packed gift hamper or gift is one thing. Creating a beautiful end package is quite another. The creative process of assembling one of our ribbon themes is very much like creating a painting. Therefore we have to look at the canvas – in this instance, the gift box, then we start with the main colour, and then we work from there to build the final look.

Often it can take a few tries and sometimes (luckily seldom more than often) it just never comes together. In most cases, we can pull it off with our first attempt, and that just comes from lots of practice.

Creating the final touch to our bows is the best part of our job. This is where our heart is shared and our thoughts are focused on the person receiving the gift. Therefore we gather as much information from our clients about the recipient of their gift as possible.

It is often in the little details that special moments are remembered and kept close to one’s heart. That is exactly what we try to accomplish with any gift that leaves our workroom. A lasting feeling of pleasure and a fond memory of receiving a special gift from someone you love and hold dear.

Connect with us so we can make your Gifting Season a happy and stress-free time. Our mission is to create an enjoyable gifting season for you from start to finish.

Reflecting on the 2022 trading year and the Gifting Season

It has yet again been a complicated and challenging business year for all small businesses in South Africa. We have been blessed with some growth during this year, which is always very welcome. Feelings of positive growth for 2023 have us excited to see where we go next. So with constant tweaks and improvements behind the scenes, we can only improve our offerings and services to our clients.

The economy in South Africa remains under duress and still has a long way to go to get back on track. So we will continue to harness all our efforts, work smarter and find ways to still bring value with exceptional quality to our clients who support us from all over the world.

We had some personal hurdles to face during this last stretch of 2022 with the loss of two family members within one month of one another. Both these losses came with huge responsibilities and the need to support family members with ongoing care and practical assistance remains ongoing. As a sole proprietor having to work through these events while trying to keep your business running does cause struggles mentally and physically. So for us, this year-end has been a bit of a struggle to keep the energy levels up and running throughout this gifting season.

There were wonderful highlights in between all the hurdles of sadness and sorrow, we became a grandmother to a gorgeous grandson in 2022 which has truly been a ray of happy sunshine injected into our life. We were awarded Best Treat Gift Hampers Business – South Africa by the LuxLife Magazine for 2022. This really was a most extraordinary highlight for us this year. What an honour to be acknowledged as a small business in this way! It really did keep us going through this difficult stretch of 2022 and we know that endorsements such as these will ensure that we grow from strength to strength in spite of the struggling economy.

Client Testimonial Yabulela Gift Hampers

We ordered a hamper to say thank you to the 4 carers who have looked after my mother through critical illnesses. We were immediately contacted with suggestions on how the hamper could be changed so that all 4 had a fabulous choice and all got mugs, candles, etc. Personal, empathic, and beautiful service. Very rare nowadays and enormously appreciated.

Client Testimonial Yabulela Gift Hampers

This was the second time this month we have used Yabulela to send gifts to family in SA and it has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with Karen again. From the excellent communication, top quality gift selection, exquisite presentation and attention to detail, to accommodating my unusual request – everything was seamless and done with great care. Thank you so much Karen and team!

I am hopeless at shopping but this was a fabulous experience. Yabulela takes away all the stress of shopping and not knowing what to buy. A few Whatsapps, Karen has incredible ideas, patience and such a warm personality. Incredibly professional, the gift arrived fast, looked magnificent and was a great success on the day. I would recommend her any day and I will certainly use Yabulela again. Nothing was too much trouble and it easy and fun! Well done Yabulela!

This is one of the best gift shops in Capetown South Africa. I had a very wonderful experience getting the perfect gift from Yabuela Gift Store. The process was hustle free, transparent, quick and straight forward. I got a gift for someone in SA while I was in Australia and Karen got the job done including delivering the gift.

Great service and communication around my delivery. While I didn’t see the final hamper myself, I received a very grateful message from my colleague.

This is the first time I’ve used Yabulela and it certainly won’t be the last. I’m so impressed with the service and communication, as well as the choice of hamper and decorations. Highly recommend using Yabulela to celebrate an occasion with a special person.

THANK YOU!

I know that I’m really late – life got in the way of writing to you Karen!

Taking a moment now to thank you sincerely for the GORGEOUS gift hamper that you arranged for Rosh Hashanah – it was delivered as requested (which involved scheduling a specific date), my note personalised included and our recipient was thrilled beyond to receive the beautiful surprise.

I personally really appreciate the extra mile you go to – keeping me informed and even sending me a pic of the wrapped gift hamper. We will definitely be using your services again and will recommend your company to all my buds.

Client Testimonial

Having tried various gift and flower shops in SA to have something special delivered to loved ones (I live in the UK) and not always getting the best results, I finally found Karen. I’ve used her twice already and both times she exceeded my expectations! The quality of the product and customer service is outstanding and I will not hesitate to use her again. Definitely recommend!!!
