Well...it’s safe to say we’ve had a far from ordinary few months here at No Ordinary Gift Company!
Thanks to you, our lovely customers, we have been kept very busy and well out of mischief! Stretching back to the end of October, we have been astounded by the number of orders that have come our way for many of our products, old and new. From unique Christmas tree baubles to beautiful wedding dress hangers, an array of greetings cards to personalised leather wash bags, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and spent many a chocolate-fuelled evening in our studio to create each individual order, especially for you.
We are delighted (and not to mention laughing a little hysterically!) at our record number of orders two weeks ago. On the last Monday in the lead up to Valentine’s Day, we received a huge 460 orders for cards and keepsakes, with other large numbers in the previous and following days. Seeing our products creep up onto the first pages of some of the Christmas and Valentine’s categories on Not on the High Street has been great news for a our little company of three, and we’re aiming high for our upcoming products – so keep your eyes peeled for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!
So, what fabulous products have we been creating we hear you ask?
Baubles, baubles, baubles.
We had an extraordinary take off at the end of last October for our Christmas decs, in particular our ‘Personalised Family Christmas Sign Post Bauble’. Incorporating a touch of Lapland and finished with a sprinkling of snow, our adorable festive wonderland was a favourite amongst the customers. A candy cane like pole was the main feature, headed with a tiny sign and up to six miniature arrow signs. These were personalised with a family surname and family members, ‘Merry Christmas’ and the recipient’s names, or even ‘Will You Marry Me?’ spread out across the little signs!
Did you manage to get one for your family Christmas tree this year? No fear! Should you have missed out on the festive fun, the bauble is still available to purchase on Not on the High Street – now wouldn’t that be organised in time for Christmas 2016!
...And people continued the sign post love right up Valentine’s Day this year! Our most popular product was the ‘I’d Be Lost Without You’ greetings card, that was just perfect for letting your other half know just how much they mean to you. Featuring three wooden signs attached to a heart topped sign post, customers could personalise the top and bottom signs with theirs and their partner’s names, with a little arrow pierced heart engraved onto the middle sign. We were thrilled by the response to the greetings card over the Valentine’s period and hope that they will continue to be popular for anniversaries and birthdays all year round too!
We have just finished pulling together our Mother’s Day products, so now is a great time to head over to our website or our Not on the High Street storefront, for some fabulous new products. There are personalised cards as well as gifts that are the perfect way to let your mum know just how special she is. (We may have slipped a sign post card in there somewhere – we just couldn’t help ourselves!)
We do hope you take the time for the odd peek at our new products, and in return, we promise to keep you updated with the latest news, creative genius and groundbreaking products that unleash from behind the doors at No Ordinary Gift Company!
