Name And Tagline For Gift Baskets
Posted by Anonymous on

I have a hobby of making gift baskets. Lately my friends whom have acquired my services has been asking me to do it commercially.
My target markets would be corporate companies and my gift baskets will mainly be for the festive season and range from $30 to $300.
I was thinking of something like 'Thoughtful Gifts' or 'Little Treats'. Something that not only says about the gift basket, but also that it was made using quality products.
I would appreciatte if members could provide a name/tagline for my future gift basket business.

Since you are targeting the corporate world with your gift baskets, I would stay away from the flowery, cutsey names and stay in line with the corporate world and jargon:
Business Centric Gifts for Corporate Giving
Unique Gift Baskets for the Corporate World
The Latest Trend in Corporate Gift-Giving
Trendy Gift Baskets for Business
Gift Baskets for the Leaders on Your List
Gift-Giving for the Corporate World

"Basket" feels clumsy.
"Tasteful" - play on tact and tasty

Happy New Year All!
Thank you for the great suggestions. It's really good that I am reminded to stay away from cutesy names as I am catering to the corporate market. The names given sound very business like and someone serious about the business.
I hope more will share their ideas :) and those who have, I really appreciate it.

I was wondering, if I put a name to the main name. Example : Lisa's Tasteful Thoughts. Would sound/look okay for the corporate segment I'm targeting? Or should I just do without the name.

If you don't want to use your name, try this:
Kudos Corporate Gifts
Kudos Corporate Awards
Kudos Corporate Rewards
Using anyone of these, I can see businesses realizing right away what service you provide-no tag line required!

If you want the option to sell your business someday, I would not use your name. I do like regional names, one of my names favorite in the Seattle ares was Puget Sound Greetings. If you do corporate work, you may find as I did that the regional slant is a good selling angle.

When choosing names -
Let people know basically what it is that you do through your name (include the words ‘gift basket’). But don’t let it limit your future growth by having a name that is too specific (concerning product types, market, region or owners name) and not flexible – you may need to change direction in the future so an abstract name can be better.
Originality – distinguish your business from others. Check with your city that your selection doesn’t infringe on the trademarks of other businesses. Check for suitable domain names too.
Memorable, practical (fits well on a business card) and easy to pronounce.
