Every year for the holiday season the company I work at, Real Art does some cool holiday gift for our clients, friends and family. In year’s past we’ve done photo kits, water bottles, desk lamps, light bulbs and travel journals and of course our smash hit the AAF National Addy award winning A New Year A New You puppets.
But this year we took a step back. We tried to be mindful of our time and our financially responsibility while developing a present that allows us to focus on what’s really important—our relationships with those around us. So we took our mailing list of 400+ names and split them up among the employees at Real Art. From there each of us was tasked with creating 12 or so, personalized handmade Christmas or seasonal cards. Each card contained a hand-written note from one of us talking about our holiday plans, our families traditions or what we were thankful for this year.
In a time when everyone’s looking for the next big impact project it’s nice to get back to the basics a little bit with an old-fashioned crafty-type card. In the end we had a huge pile of custom handmade cards that our clients, friends and family all enjoyed receiving.
