What sets us apart from most gifting companies? Besides the fact we source local, woman-owned, or small business for most of our products, at the core - WE ARE BUSINESS DEVELOPERS.
Our owner has personally managed thousands of dollars in annual client and employee gifts for years. She has sat in boardrooms stressing over "what if they don't like this?" And "is this too cheap or too expensive?" We get it and because we talk to corporate clients about gifting every day, we understand what your competitors are sending and who is sending the most memorable gifts.
OUR OWNER'S STORY:
It all started in 3rd grade. I created one of the largest bracelet-selling operations my elementary school's playground had ever seen. I'll never forget the day my teacher shut it down after I had amassed a full $62.25 in my little mermaid cash box. I've always loved business, but more importantly, I've always loved the way someone's face lights up when they receive a quality product.
Seven years ago, I heard Andy Stanley talking about business. He said the best leaders are committed to one core value: "do for one what you wish you could do for everyone." Ever since, I've lived by that motto, especially when it comes to gift giving, business, and relationships.
At Blasem, we don't want you to be scared of sending the wrong gift. Our goal is to help show the world there isn't ever really a wrong gift, when it's a gift that took some thought. In today's virtual world, quick gift cards, bulk hams, and generic fruit baskets aren't cutting it anymore. Everyone is sending those and to get ROI, you need to stand out.
Blasem is a woman-owned gift box company headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We believe in supporting local, women-owned, and small businesses. Because of this, at least half of the items in every Blasem Box are sourced from companies that fit that mission statement.
When I started Blasem, I was walking through one of the hardest seasons of my life. After spending hours on the phone with consulates and NGOs overseas, wondering if I'd ever see one of my closest family members make it home safely, a small package arrive at my door. It was a gift from a friend and I immediately wept. It was the first time in days I sincerely believed there might be hope. Sometimes, all we need is a little gesture to remind us we aren't alone.
Partner that experience with having also worked as a sales representative who scoured local boutiques finding high quality client gifts, I realized I could build a solution to this need for intentional gifting. What do you get someone going through chemo? Or someone who just lost a loved one? How do you say thank you to a client who means the world to you? Our Blasem team curates gifts we are proud of and saves you the hours of driving and deliberating in aisles.
Every box is accompanied by a handwritten note, because let's face it - whether you're in the South or the Midwest, personal touch matters. I couldn't bare to see the look on my sweet tea drinking mom's face if she knew I was sending gifts without cards.
At Blasem, you matter. It's not uncommon for our team to pause in silence awestruck by the fact you let us be a part of sending gifts to people you care about. We don't take it lightly and we treat every order like we're doing it for family.
I want to personally thank you for believing in Blasem. With every purchase, I'm reminded that it matters.
