Customers sustainable gift story
Still considering a Premium E-Gift Card? Read Amelia’s story on why she gifted her employee, Emily a year’s worth of designer clothing through GC Premium.
Amelia: I wanted to gift Emily something special for Christmas that represented how grateful I was for all her hard work throughout the year in my business. My gift criteria for Emily was for something that’s stylish, practical and sustainable.
And so, I found that the Glamcorner Premium Subscription was the perfect fit! Emily instantly had endless corporate/casual and event wardrobe overnight. It benefited her personal life as well as professional, so as a work gift, it ticked every box. Emily always looks on point at all of our events and meetings and represents my business beautifully. It’s a win-win!
To top it off, we get our boxes delivered to the office so we can go through the styles together!
And that’s that! We hope you love the sustainable gift ideas we’ve recommended. You can rest easy knowing that you will help reduce your environmental footprint, helped those in need and be kinder to our planet!
