Holiday Swag Shop: Welcome
 

It seems like the Holiday season starts sooner and sooner every year!  Just last week, I was in Target and the seasonal corner was decked out in oranges & purples and the shelves were stocked with pumpkin buckets, flowing ghost & faux spider web decorations and an array of costumes & unruly wigs.  When I walked back in just a few days later, there wasn’t a single trace of the Halloween decor that had just been there; standing in its place were PVC trees, glittery ornaments and an assortment of packaging options to choose from. Target isn’t the only offender, either.  In fact, Starbucks wasted no time changing out their seasonal offerings chalkboard from the ever-so-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte to their Gingerbread and Peppermint Mocha lattes, instead.  Is it just me or has Thanksgiving been taken hostage? Call me old fashioned but, I prefer to watch a little football and feast on a nice turkey spread before I start hearing Holiday tunes and trimming the tree!

Swagmatic does, however, understand the need for planning.  Shamefully, even we found ourselves organizing our year end plans mid-October and had the deal sealed before our trick-or-treat bags were full but we had a good excuse: we didn’t want anything to take from all the cheer and energy we are ready to put into YOUR gifting plans!

With that being said, we know you might need a few ideas to get the ball rolling.  It can be tedious and overwhelming trying to present something new and eye catching, sometimes to the same people, year after year.  That’s why Swagmatic is bringing you our newest blog series: Holiday Swag Shop.  Starting today, and every day for the rest of the month, we’re going to showcase something we think at least one of our customers can appreciate.  Hopefully we can inspire you to close out 2013 with some seriously exciting swag!
