GIFTING? - Get your head around this and remember COMPENDIUM

Too-Generic Presents--Even though they are given often, mugs are never good presents, except for people you barely know. The same goes for $10 worth of lottery tickets. In other words, stay away from gifts that say nothing except "I have no clue... so here."

The point of gift-giving is to show that you care, so if it's obvious that you haven't put any thought into the gift at all, there's no point in giving it.

According to the traditional sovereign view, gift-giving is likely to generate less satisfaction for recipients than their own purchases. But according to the idiot view, who knows? Maybe givers can choose items that will make recipients happier than their own choices would have.

The downside to gift certificates is that if you are actually close to the recipient, they might feel hurt that you didn't buy them a more personalized gift.

Do You Really Think You Are in the Gift Business?

Your business' future will be determined by how you answer that question. If you think your business is about designing, creating, selling and marketing giftware products and your favorite business motto is "product is king," then your business is doomed to failure because it is based on an obsolete business model and misplaced priorities.

"Gift" It's No Longer a Noun, It's a Verb - "Gifting" But if you see your business delivering a wonderfully unique, emotional gift-giving ("gifting") experience to the recipient (the consumer), then you're on track to succeed in the 21st century. You've discovered "product is king" is a lie and what is really important is meeting the consumers' need and desire.

Today our society is incredibly affluent with most consumers having all the material goods they could possibly need. As a result, when shoppers go to the store, they rarely are driven by a need to buy anything, rather their purchases are based upon a desire to achieve an experience or a feeling. Your gift business needs to recognize this new consumer paradigm and get on the experiential marketing bandwagon.

Choose wisely and we are here to help.

Now on The New York Times Best Seller List.

Written by Kobi Yamada and Illustrated by Mae Besom

What do ideas become? Big thigs, brave things, smart things, silly things, good things. Things like stories, artwork, journeys, inventions, communities, products and cures.
Everything you see around you was once an idea.

What do you do with an idea?
Especially an idea that's different, or daring, or just a little wild?

Do you hide it? Walk away from it? Do you pretend it isn't yours?

This is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps bring it into the world. As the child's confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day something amazing happens.

This is a story for anyone, at any agte, who's ever had an idea tat seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It's a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn't going anywhere. In fact, it's just getting started.

What Do You Do With A Problem?

Written by Kobi Yamada and Illustrated by Mae Besom.

What are problems for? They challenge us, shape us, push us, and help us to discover just how strong and brave and capable we really are. Even though we don't always want them, problems have a way of changing us in unexpected ways.

So, what will you do with your problem? Especially one that follows you around and doesn't seem to be going away?

Do you worry about it?
Do you run and hide from it?

This is the story of a persistent problem and the child who isn't so sure what to make of it. The longer the problem is avoided, the bigger it seems to get. But when the child finally musters up the courage to face it, the problem turns out to be something quite different than expected.

This is the story for anyone, any age, who has ever had a problem that they wished would go away. It's a story to inspire you to look closely at that problem and to find out why it's here. Because you might discover something amazing about your problem.... and yourself. Now that's up to you.
