Gifts From Hand Picked - Our Year in Review!
Monday, 6 January 2014 | Admin
Morning all! It's so hard to believe that it's already 2014 - where does time go?! Hopefully you all enjoyed the festive period...and hopefully dragging yourselves back to normality after the season of excess wasn't too tough!
Thank You to Our Customers & Friends!
Thanks to all of you lovely people, we had a fantastic 2013, and it's our aim to make 2014 even bigger and better than the year before. It's going to be tough, though, as we've had a lot to shout about over the last 12 months! One of the highlights for me was our Best Online Business award at the 11th Mumpreneur UK Awards in September - I couldn't believe it!
We're Almost Famous!
2013 also saw Gifts From Handpicked being interviewed for the radio, featuring on ITV's 60 Minute Makeover and speaking at a seminar before Kirsty Allsop - all very exciting! We were also honoured to post out our products to big names such as Helena Bonham Carter and Dannii Minogue. (But shhh. We did not just name drop!) When I started the company six years ago it was a complete change of career for me, and I still have to keep pinching myself to check that it's real!
Christmas Gifts All year Round!
Although Christmas is over now for most people, it's still top of our minds here. While you're all busy taking down Christmas cards and decorations and finishing off your Christmas chocolate and other goodies, we're actually planning for Christmas 2014 already! Our first trade show of the year is on January 12th and will be focused purely on Christmas, so our festive season will be a bit longer than most! We're working on bringing you a much bigger Christmas range for 2014 and will also be launching a new website just for Christmas, so watch this space... Oh and don't forget that we supply Christmas Gifts all year round! So that Christmas themed party or Wedding can run smoothly!
In the meantime, HAPPY NEW YEAR and may 2014 bring you much joy and happiness!
