Arpine Babloyan, the Demand Generation Manager at Avid Technology, Inc., had a dilemma - Christmas was on its way, and she was in a time crunch. Arpine was juggling her duties at work - maximizing the benefits of marketing automation for the company, event management, and monitoring campaign success, just to name a few - as well as responsibilities at home and the added challenge of finishing the holiday shopping. Like many people in business, she didn't only have to deal with finding meaningful presents for family members, she also had to make sure important partners and employees around the world received Christmas gifts as well.
She told us, "For me, the biggest challenge around the holidays is time. So many gifts to buy, so little time to do it. And while I had managed to get gifts for neighbors and close friends, there was still a lot to do. My family is scattered all over the world, with relatives in a few cities and towns in Russia and Armenia. In addition, I needed to think of employees and partners who work all over the U.S. and across the world in Japan."
Fortunately, Arpine found out that GiftBasketsOverseas.com specializes in making it easy to choose ideal gifts for everyone and getting them around the globe in time, so she could focus on taking care of everything else she had to do.
"I was extremely happy when I discovered that GiftBasketsOverseas.com could take care of all my holiday gift-giving needs to Japan, the U.S., Armenia, and Russia in a single order. All I had to do was to fill out a simple spreadsheet with my gift selections, and they responded right away with a quote. They even suggested some appropriate delivery times that took consideration of the holiday schedule in Japan which I was not aware of. GiftBasketsOverseas.com made sure all the gifts were delivered on time – and since some of the gifts were a surprise, the GiftBasketsOverseas.com's staff called my family members in advance to schedule time when they were home for delivery."
Aprine's gifts were a great success. Almost immediately upon their delivery, she was receiving 'thank yous.' One partner dived into the sweet treats the moment they arrived and wrote, "We just got a lovely Santa stuffed with goodies! I'm currently noshing on a peppermint bark."
An employee told her, "I love [the gift], and you've made my day." Another wrote, "That was very sweet and thoughtful of you! Now I have lots of candy to eat and share with everyone." And a cousin in Russia was so surprised, she could hardly believe the gift, "We are so amazed with such a surprise...I was at work, and all my coworkers were very jealous. We devoured the basket all together! Where did you get it?"
But the service at GiftBasketsOverseas.com isn't only about the gifts or the delivery. It's about creating memorable moments with the people who are most important in our customers' lives. Arpine told us, "The biggest gift I got that New Year was a photo of my great aunt who lives in a small suburban town in Russia, with a gift basket she received, and a big smile on her face (the photo was also a service Gift Baskets Overseas provided). She was so surprised to receive her basket, and it was magical to her since she didn’t even know such services existed."
Now Arpine doesn't have to worry when it's time to send gifts. "I already know where to go for my gift-giving needs for family and coworkers overseas." She'll come back to enjoy our wide selection of exquisite personal and corporate gifts, and when she does, she'll also find personalized, round-the-clock customer service; an easy-to-use ordering system; and the human touch that makes every gift an occasion to remember. Best of all, she knows she won't have to deal with the hassles that can take the joy out of the holidays.
