Default Giving your products as gifts

I have a b-day party this weekend for a little girl my son used to go to school with. Instead of trying to figure out something to buy, I thought I would just make her some bows and a bag since I have everything here. My question is... How do you base your gift? Do you give a person a certain $ amount that you would normally sell the item at? KWIM? I like to stay in a $20 range when I buy something. Should I give her $20 worth of product?

TIA!

Kristie

I always give my items as gifts but have never even considered the actual value of them. I just usually give at least 2 items.

i just sent a baby shower gift to a friend of mine that included a hand made bow holder (4 letters hand painted by me) and also a about 3 different flowers and 5 bows and a lot of different headbands crochet, lace, foe & skinny. i looked at it all layed out and added up how much it would have been and it was about $100 YIKES! but she was more than grateful and i was so happy to be able to do so for her.

maybe give a little bit extra since it will technically cost you less....maybe a few items that all go together. I am sure they will appreciate it and I am sure that other moms there will be wow'd by the gift and ask and then maybe you can score some business,

When I give my own items as gifts, I usually go overboard because I dont want to come off as cheap. I usually make them up in a nice basket as well.

I also give stuff I make as gifts and have never thought about how much its worth. Sometimes I ask dd her opinion on what we should give and she wants to give them everything

I would say give what you want, and make sure you put a biz card in it

I've given my stuff as gifts before, but really wasn't sure what everyone else does. I usually go over board (since I know what the cost is for me). I like to see what everyone else does.

What I usually do is have my daughter pick out whatever toy her friend wants and then add a bow on the packaging. All the moms ohh and ahh over the bow sitting on the top of the pile of presents and will ask me about my business. Some of her close friends request particular items and can't wait to get their bows/ headbands/ headband holders. And they always put the item on RIGHT away when they open presents. I never put a card in, I'm wimpy about that, but they know who I am. If you think the little girl will like the gift then it's totally appropriate. If you can personalize it, even better. It'll seem like you put a little thought into it. My daughter's friends love their monogrammed bows!

I always go overboard, too! Not only is it a good gift- it makes great advertising!
