Pivot not Pause

Posted by Sophie Ayaz on

We are living in unprecedented times, unchartered territory. The first few weeks were a bit of a blur almost an adjustment period, our old lives were no more but I think as humans we are built to adapt, it might take a while but we will get there. Some of us are finding it a lot harder because of our mental health demons, please don't let that bog you down, take all the time you need to find your own way of dealing with this current situation, showing gratitude for the small things has helped me get through so many difficult days. 

One thing this has taught us is that we are all in this together and must support one another. As a small business I deliberated on whether I should or shouldn't keep my business open and if I'm honest it took me almost 3 weeks make a decision. Seeing all my fellow indie friends in the same boat helped me realise I'm not the only one feeling like this. It's completely normal to not know how to feel or what to do I mean after all we have never been in the middle of a pandemic before! The most important thing is not to pause but to pivot.

So Finally I am back open whilst following government guidelines making sure I have created a safe hygienic environment in my studio to create a gifting range ready for you, our customers to send to your loved one's. I have made it easy and simple for you to send a treat to let them know you're thinking of them. Whether it's a 'Happy Birthday Box' or a 'I Miss You Box' we are here to help you get your message across, every box comes with a handwritten gift card with your own personal message. 

This whole process has shown us who the backbone of society really are, the true heroes, the amazing NHS, the care workers and the key workers who are risking their own lives to keep the cogs of the country turning whilst we battle this pandemic. A  BIG THANK YOU to these amazing Heroes, we are proud to clap for you to show our eternal gratitude. 

As a business we want to also show our appreciation and offer all NHS & Care Workers 10% off our entire gifting range just pop an email 📧 to hello@thegiftingexperience.com and I will send you a special code as a thank you. 

I also want to thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for all your support, in helping me keep my little business going in what are very difficult times for a lot of small independent businesses. 

We will get through this, we will come out at the other side stronger and more resilient than ever before. 

Stay well, Stay safe, Stay at home and Love each other 

From my home to yours
