Don't stress over gifting this year, focus on the benefits!

We do it for people’s birthdays, when they are sick, around the holidays, and sometimes just because. Gifting is a huge part of our culture and steeped in tradition. With the holidays coming up I am sure many of you have gifting on your mind, and it can get a bit overwhelming. Before we start making our lists and getting caught up in the shopping frenzy, I’d like to take a moment to remind us all of the benefits of gift giving.

Start with this question: Why do you give gifts?

“I like to make someone else feel good,” is a common response. However, the benefits also extend to the giver and the relationship between them and their recipient. When you decide to give a gift to someone, you are thinking about them. You consider their likes and dislikes. The search for the gift itself can be an emotional lift and reinforce your relationship. You show an interest and appreciation toward another person and this strengthens the bond and it also helps to define the relationship.

5 ways we make ordering custom gifts easy

At Fairytale Brownies our goal is to "simplify gift giving and spread joy through gourmet chocolate brownies." For each one of the business services we create, we ask ourselves, "will this feature make the ordering process easier for the customer?" Especially when it comes to corporate gift giving and business gift giving. We understand that the business world is very hectic and the last thing that we have time for these days is to figure out how to send holiday gifts, or say thank you to referrals, clients and business associates alike.

Here are a few of the business services that Fairytale Brownies has implemented to ease the strain of ordering corporate gifts or business gifts for the holidays or for year-round incentive programs.

1) Custom logo gifts: Fairytale Brownies features delicious brownies, cookies and bars with distinctive packaging which can be personalized with your full-color logo or photo. Simply upload your high resolution logo or photo in .jpg format to order online....

Halloween Play at the Best Brownie Company

At Fairytale Brownies we believe in the importance of play. With a product that is so fun and such a whimsical brand, how could we not! That is why we partner with the non-profit organization KaBOOM! Their goal is to create a safe place to play in walking distance of every child in America. I have gotten the opportunity to work at one of the playground builds and it is amazing how many people come together to create a fun place for kids to learn through play!

Of course play isn’t just for kids, or Halloween. Many of our employees dressed up for the occasion, including myself. We really do work at the best brownie company, not just because we make the tastiest gourmet brownies, but because of the great work environment.

From all of us at Fairytale Brownies, have a very playful and fun Halloween!

Go mobile! Now order brownies from the comfort of your mobile device

I've written about this topic a few times, mobile commerce is a huge part of everyday life for people today. For me, it is a HUGE part of my life . . . I check my email, get coupons for groceries, interact on social networks, shop on Amazon (yes, I said it!), do my banking and pay credit cards, and a multitude of other things all on my phone. So as the percentage of people who own smartphones is at an all-time high, and use them for much more than making phone calls and texting, it made sense for us as a business to create a mobile optimized experience. Part of our mission statement at Fairytale Brownies has always been, "We simplify gift-giving", so naturally we had to make gift-giving easy for our customers who are plugged in. With a clear understanding of our strategy, I was tasked with creating a mobile optimized experience for our tablet customers as well as our mobile customers. 

This was a massive project that I've literally been working on since early last year. We've gone...

Generous Customers Support KaBOOM! at Fairytale Open House

fudge browniesFairytale Brownies was prepared with plenty of $1 rejects for customers to purchase at last week's Open House, and our customers didn't disappoint. Generous "promoters of play" donated $2,000 to the national nonprofit KaBOOM! in just three hours!

Fairytale Brownies and KaBOOM! have been play partners since 2001. Since that time, we have contributed more than $100,000, along with brownies, cookies and countless volunteer hours working toward building safe places for children to play within walking distance of every child in America.

Fairytale Brownies customers help us promote play by donating funds at the end of their online purchases. We match ever dollar donated, up to $5,000 at the end of the year. Visit here to learn more about giving the gift of play.

A big thank you to all though who came by to purchase rejects, sample product and say hello to the Fairytale crew. It was so nice to chat with all of you!

Here are some other photos from our Open House last week:

Send brownies as a branded office food gift

office food giftOn a recent visit to a client’s office, I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of snacks and sweets lying around. The kitchen was fully stocked with every munchies imaginable – from oatmeal to potato chips. And there was chocolate everywhere!

I must admit though. It wasn’t the best chocolate. I’m talking about those Halloween candy mixes. Meh.

I know exactly how I’ll thank that chocolate-loving client for their business moving forward. I’ll send brownie gift baskets with my logo on them! The next time you’re in the market for office food gifts, turn to Fairytale Brownies for a range of memorable options.

If your budget is limited, you can send a Custom Gift Favor for as little as $13.95. Small in size, but bountiful in taste, these brownie gift baskets delight your clients while building your brand.

If you really want to blow away your client, a Custom Gift Tower is the way to go. Our Majestic Tower is a soaring five-box tower with three sizes of brownies, classic Fairytale Cookies and buttery...

Brownie grooms-cake and precious memories!

Last week I shared a great comment sent to us from an excited customer who's daughter used Fairytale Brownies as custom wedding favors. The favors were a smashing success! This week we received another, very touching, comment about more wedding brownies. It's stories like the one's below that make doing what we do worth every minute. Spreading joy and making memories . . . that's what it's all about! 

"Just wanted to send in this quick RAVE! My daughter ordered brownies to use as the basis for her husbands grooms-cake last week at her wedding. I remembered how amazing your brownies were from a few years back when my closest friend received some for a gift. They were so good that she and I hid them in the freezer in her garage so we wouldn't have to share them with anyone else. When we sat down to watch an old movie, we would take two out of the freezer. My friend has since passed on, but for many reasons she was with us at the wedding including watching us eat those wonderful brownies....
