Thank-You Gifts

I love Thank-You gifts.  I consider them to be a win-win choice. 
Everyone I know enjoys receiving a little something extra when they make a purchase.  That little gift makes you feel special.  I don't know too many people who don't like receiving gifts.

I also enjoy giving Thank-You gifts.  I give them for so many different reasons and there are so many different types of Thank-You gifts to give to your customers.  In my jewelry shop, Jewelry by Cheryls Purple Cow I usually include a matching pair of earrings with each bracelet purchased.

Can you guess what the Thank-You gift of choice is in my supply shop, Cheryls Extra Beads.  Let me give you a hint.  I have too many beads and I needed to sell or somehow get some of them out of my house.  Did you guess "beads"?  I even like the play on words.  I attach the Thank-You gift with a label that states "A Thank-You Gift for You from My Extra Beads".

I have fun choosing the beads that I will give with each individual order.  I do get carried away sometimes.  I have taken over an hour to choose the beads for a $10.00 order because I couldn't decide which beads to choose.

Thank-You gifts don't always come in a package with a bow.  I like to encourage my readers to comment on my blog posts.  I choose the pictures to include in some of my blog posts from the comments left in previous posts.  The Thank-You gift for leaving a comment is having a picture and link to the item in a future blog post.  I also link to your shop at the end of the post.

What is your opinion on Thank-You gifts?  Does your shop give them?  I would love to read your comments on this subject. 

I would love to thank Dawn April Jewelry, Finding Charm and SMJ Gifts for commenting and for allowing me to use their pictures on my blog.

Thanks for posting one of my awareness bracelets. It's another way of getting out the word. Feel free to use any other items I have in Etsy.

That's so cute you painstakingly pick out beads. I could see myself doing that too. It's so thoughtful. I give a magnet in my packages. I figure it's handy and no one really throws away a magnet. Now that I have a job, I'll be able to add to my thank you gift collection to other fun, handy objects.

Thank you and you're welcome about the pictures!

There are many ways to say thank you. You have found several different ways, and the best part is not only are your current readers enjoying the posts and pictures, but potential new readers are seeing these posts and pictures, and it helps tremendously to get the word out in a very creative way!

Thank you for what you do!

I usually give free earrings but sometimes I send beads if I know it's a beader. My last order I gave a free ring. :) It's fun to give to others!

I love your gifts!!! Your latest one nearly made me cry! <3
