What types of trends are you seeing in the gift industry right now?
Consumers favor sustainability: recycled plastics, USDA Organic seals and 100% Carbon Offset with wind power. Also, a connection to communities, our lip balms also donate 10% to local charities for that reason.
How have your customer's needs changed as of late?
They want something light and portable, a small caring token of appreciation to take home, and they value the emotional connection "kisses" make.
How long have you exhibited with the Seattle Gift Show?
This will be my second show in Seattle in less than 8 months, I also went to Vegas in Sept 2018 .
What would you say to someone considering attending the Seattle Gift Show?
Women often own 5-6 lip balms and consumer trends show that they are increasingly interested in organic brands. It is a small convenience item wihen traveling as well as a cute souvenir to bring home. We have an $87 show special that lets you try a common item that sells well by the counter in all 3 flavors for you to see how well it works for your customers.
