over choosing and designing the product and hence it gains its gift value. Make your customers
realize it through your promotional mails and activities. Convince them that personalization is
the new ‘handmade’ of the internet era. If you can be successful with your advertising, your sales

Let Your Customers Add A Personal Message

card with personal message along with the gift. In the contemporary world of long distance

gift to reach the receiver on their birthday, be it so. Provide the option of fixed day delivery to
your customers. You can charge an additional convenience fee for the same, and your customer
wouldn’t mind it.
Provide Separate Invoice Options

make your personalized gifting segment a success. Either you can send the invoice to another
address provided by the customer or send it as e-mail.
