2 Canadian Black-Owned Products For BHM Employee Gifts

2 Canadian Black-Owned Products For BHM Employee Gifts

We always love getting to work with Intuit Canada because they put so much thought into the products they would like included in their gift boxes and this project was no different. In February we had the pleasure of creating custom gift boxes in honour of Black History month for over 300 Intuit Canada employees.

THE PROJECT

For this project we were asked to source products from two black-owned businesses, specifically one product from Ontario and one from Alberta to represent where both of Intuit's Canadian offices are located.

PRODUCTS

We sourced products from two Canadian black-owned and women-owned businesses that were able to accommodate our tight timeline. Dupe from Travelling Dishes and Taylor from Cup of Té ensured us that they could turn around enough product to meet our tight timeline and they did just that!

We included English Breakfast loose leaf tea from Cup of Té in Toronto, Ontario and Nigerian Chin Chin bites from Travelling Dishes in Edmonton, Alberta; you can never go wrong with tea and a sweet treat!

PACKAGING

The products were packaged in a black gloss gift box and completed with a large custom branded sticker that included a personal message from Intuit Canada’s Country Manager, David Marquis.

SHIPPING

We love to make the process of gifting a whole lot easier for our clients; we handle everything from gift creation, product sourcing, shipping and we even take care of the collection of mailing addresses, if needed. For this project we made a custom Intuit landing page and sent the secure link to 300+ employees to submit their mailing address. Once completed their information was sent directly to us and our Intuit client didn't have to collect one address--yes, it's a game changer!
