We know that choosing the perfect holiday gift is not easy. You want it to fit your budget, be appropriate, but not too cheap in quality or too...
SUPPLY & DEMAND-EOY GIFTING
Now is the time to think about holiday gifting. Ok we get it, everyone just went back to school & here we are talking about the holiday season.
Lingering effects from full or partial shutdowns of production centers/fulfillment facilities, the potential for more shutdowns, and the shift to manufacturing PPE instead of traditional promo items could all cause hiccups in the supply chain. The fact of the matter is the factories are getting back to producing what they’re intended to produce with longer lead times, and demand is at an all-time high.
So how do you protect your end-of-year plans for gifting while staying on budget? Get your end-of-year plans approved and ORDER NOW.
Smart, savvy buyers will place orders for end-of-year gifts and promo by Halloween but a more finite deadline (if you need a little more approval time) is no later than Thanksgiving this year. This will provide ample time for production, shipping, packaging, and delivery.
Check that looming task off of the checklist extra early this year, and let the holiday season saunter in nice and easy.
