Christmas is only 10 days away. Hooray! One of the best things about having a home-based gift wrapping business. It is having control over your service, it’s work process. And most important; control over client’s experience. Here are 5 easy, yet impactful and professional things you can do to level up client’s experience.
A Soothing Scent
Get high-end candles that have either a cinnamon or cinnamon and apple scent. Those tend to not only be the most neutral of scents, but also the most common holiday inspired scents. Stay away from using too cheap of scented candles. For two main reasons.
1. These types of candles tend to emit too much smoke.
You clients will end up smelling the smoke more than the candle itself.
2. These types of candles tend to exude too much black soot.
As a result, stains surrounding areas and walls. So, not only are you left with ill-marked walls and more. You have more to clean up after.
Sweet-Smelling Spice – Cinnamon Joy
For a more budget friendly alternative. Fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil. Then take 2 raw cinnamon sticks and throw them in and turn your stove down to let them simmer for the next hour or so. NOTE: As a good rule of thumb. It takes about 2 sticks of cinnamon for about every 2 cups of water.
FUN FACT: This scent may be perfect for your work envionment. Cinnamon can sharpen your mind. Not only is it one of the coziest scents out there – but this spice is known to boost your brain power. Fabulous!
Make a batch of fresh cookies and serve those to your clients. You can even pre-package them in a small baggie or sandwich baggie of choice and then tie a ribbon around the top. And then present them to your client upon their arrival. This is an ever great item to do for clients wanting to stay and wait, while you wrap. So, why not give them something delicious and home-made to eat?
COOKIE BONUS POINTS: The 3 best cookies to make during the Christmas holiday are oatmeal chocolate chip. Molasses or Gingerbread!
Batch up on small hard or soft holiday candies. And serve them to your clients upon pick-up. Or for those wishing to stay and wait while you wrap their gifts. The 2 most favored candies, based on my own client experience. Has been either peppermints or butterscotch.
To add an extra dose of holiday cheer as well as classy ambience to your in-home environment. Have some Christmas music playing lightly in the background.
Personally, there are two types of music, I like playing the most. It is either Christmas jazz or classical. And when it comes to holiday inspired classical music, I tend to favor either baroque or classical guitar.
Another reason I prefer these two styles is because there is generally no singing. Now, that may sound like I’m a bit of a Grinch. But my main reason for this is that it won’t end up competing for my or the client’s attention. This is especially important while in the midst busy season and in the midst of conducting professionalism.
