It may seem a little odd for a delivery company to suggest you buy more stuff.
I bet you are thinking, they are the ones delivering the things I buy so why would they want me to buy less stuff.
Here's why and yes and it is not a bad thing for our business.
Christmas gifts are awesome.
There are some gifts that can be of great benefit to the receiver and help them in some way.
Gifts that keep them warm or help them with other responsibilities.
So, the question is why would I say give memories and what does that mean?
It often seems that the things kids and adults ask for as gifts become clutter in no time.
Clutter that could have been avoided.
I realize clutter does not bother everyone.
Does it bother you?
Now it you have a gift you can use and want that is different.
If you need a winter jacket or uniforms for work or school.
But memories never wear out.
They are easy to share.
They can be used when you need them also.
So how do you give memories?
It is kind of like buying things and moments that can be consumed.
What moments can you think back on in your life that left a memory you will never forget?
Maybe you give a couple of movie passes to a cinema lover.
Just like the picture above of the roller coaster, give a day or season pass to an amusement park.
For a music lover you can look at upcoming concerts and buy tickets or make your own ticket and let them know it will be your treat when the tickets go on sale.
Foodies would love a great dinner gift card.
Those are just a couple of ideas.
You know exactly what the people you know, and love like to do, and they will be so surprised when you think of such an original gift.
Why would a delivery/shopping/errand company suggest that people give memories instead of lots of stuff that will possibly have to be delivered?
Well, this business owner is not crazy.
The things Rollin delivers to clients on a regular basis are things that are needed mostly for daily life.
Medicine, grocery, office supplies.
Of course, they get things they enjoy too.
Like a great meal from their favorite restaurant, fundraiser or cater.
But for the most part they order services that expand the reach of their everyday lives.
I hope you enjoyed reading the very first entry in blogmas this year.
