Several years ago, a realtor began buying Photo Blankets from us on a regular basis and shipping them directly to the new home owners. In speaking with her, she told me she was buying them as a house warming gift for her new home owners. Each Photo Blanket had a photo of their new house and she added the text “Welcome Home” to each one.
She said it was one of the best gifts she’s ever done. The new home owners proudly display their blanket in their home, often on their couch, and mention it (and their realtor) to everyone one who sees it. What a great way to get referrals! And she’s received many heart-felt ‘thank you’s’ from her clients who know she put some time and thought into selecting a personalized gift for them.
Not only is the Photo Blanket a great house warming gift, it’s also a great marketing tool for her. Think of all the wonderful things these new home owners are saying about her behind her back. They’re talking to their family and friends, to their new neighbors and anyone else who stops by the house and sees the Photo Blanket displayed.
While this not the typical buyer of our Photo Blankets, it is a typical response from the gift recipient. They know someone (you) put some thought into their gift and it’s something they can actually use and display in their home.
