What do you gift the person who has everything? Personalized gifts are always a thoughtful choice for wedding & baby showers, birthdays, Christmas, thank you and housewarming presents.
In 2016, Nashville Wraps customer Tracey Herron looked for a way to work from home in order to homeschool her young son while providing income for her family. Creating monogrammed gifts for friends was something she enjoyed. Her job at the time put her in contact with many real estate professionals. That’s when her new business idea was formed.
Custom Real Estate Closing Gifts
Tracey quickly realized her personalized creations would make great closing gifts for realtors. That was the start of Beloved Belongings, Tracey’s home-based business in Brentwood, Tennessee. Through word-of-mouth, her unique gifts and fun personality quickly became popular with real estate professionals.
Brentwood realtor Brandon Hannah says, “Tracey’s creations are the best! We use her business to provide personalized gifts for our clients at their closings. Every time it’s the same wonderful reaction! Not only is the quality top-tier, but also the turnaround time is very fast and the packaging is always perfectly done!”
Thoughtfulness Never Goes Out of Style
From monogrammed pillows, coasters, candles, cutting boards, pails and mugs, Beloved Belongings gift baskets are a sweet reward for new homeowners. They are all smiles when they receive a gift with this much WOW factor! It’s a smart choice for any business professional to make a lasting memory with their clients by offering thank you gifts like these.
Along with corporate clients, Beloved Belongings offers personalized Christmas ornaments for the grandparents, newly married and families. Tracey recreates actual renderings of any home on an ornament or piece of slate stone. As a bonus, she provides complimentary gift wrapping on all her items.
Wrapping Up the Charm
Beloved Belongings’ charm is also the packaging. Tracey found local supplier Nashville Wraps through a friend who was also a customer. “I love that I can order online from my home and the products are shipped so quickly,” says Tracey. “I save so much money buying wholesale from Nashville Wraps versus going to a local store and paying retail. They truly have the best selection of packaging products you can find.”
When Tracey designs her gift baskets she considers how to enhance the gift. Nashville Wraps’ new extra-large market trays make great reusable containers for monogramming the front and for larger gift baskets that include her custom pillows.
Adding crinkle shred to support her products, Tracey then wraps the baskets in a cellophane basket bag. Then comes the finishing touch with raffia, burlap ribbon, or cabana stripes ribbon. Ornaments are packaged in clear lid jewelry gift boxes secured with stretch loop bows. Small gifts are placed in brown kraft shopping bags with tissue paper and pretty ribbon. These ready-to-go gifts are a dream for any busy person who wants something extra-special to give.
Happy Customers Make Business Sweeter
Tracey’s says, “It warms my heart to see the excitement from customers when they pick up their gift knowing the recipient will love it. Then to hear or see photos of smiling faces of the person receiving the gift is the sweetest part of my business. “
