Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful - Norman Vincent Peale
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
It’s been a roller-coaster journey for me and now comes the holiday season of Christmas to enjoy the fruits of working all year long.
I love the spirit of Christmas – the bond of family traditions and joyous memories. It keeps the family together with affection.
Even though Christmas is traditional not an Indian festival, it’s celebrated with a lot of verve and enthusiasm all over the country.
In fact, the cuddly, grandpa-like Santa Claus is an endearing figure for kids during the festival. All throughout the year, children with bated breath, wait for him to come with a bag full of gifts for the little ones.
Also a time for exchanging gifts, distributing sweets, and pampering your family members with interesting purchase, this is the time for shopping, and how! Billions of dollars are spent on buying gifts in what is the busiest shopping season in a year.
In the recently concluded Black Friday –the four-day holiday weekend that kicked off the Christmas shopping season, people bought more stuff online rather than going to the store.
It’s a great thing for us entrepreneurs to reach a global audience with open arms. When a leather messenger or satchel from India is bought by a customer sitting in the United States, you know it’s a win-win situation for either party.
Anyway, moving on from e-commerce razzmatazz to Christmas shopping once again, I asked a few of my friends living all around the world about their shopping decisions – what did they buy, for whom, from where was it a ‘sale’ item or not, etc.
First things first, almost all of them said their holiday shopping plans are online-based this year. Most of them said they relied on e-commerce shopping to purchase all their gifts, barring few. The reason was to avoid setting foot in crazy malls where the stampede-like situation occurs during sale hours.
Most of them bought or plan to buy gift cards and certificates for their loved ones. Additionally, clothing or apparels also seem to the flavor of the season, with almost all of my friends planning to buy at least one dress item.
Books and games came third in the list of shopping, while food & liquor, jewelry, and CDs/DVDs came in the final spot.
I then asked if given a choice they would buy/gift leather bags and accessories to their family and friends. All of them unequivocally said yes, and were further surprised how different and innovative the product was.
While run-of-the-mill products and factory-made products are passé, this is the time to gift unique, handcrafted leather goods and accessories to be different; to be truly personal.
I recommended my friends to take a look at Rustic Town and check out elegant, stylish leather-made products that they could buy or gift someone special during this festive season. I was extremely pleased to know that most of them ordered something or the other – from leather satchels to women’s bags, etc.
Further, as part of the celebratory festive season, Rustic Town Collection is giving a flat 15% discount on all products till 31st Jan 2015. Customers can use the discount coupon code – ‘save15’ while ordering the product and buy tons of quality leather products at amazing prices!
