I had the chance to interview Seetoh and Evelyn, the owners of IdeaGifts.com.sg.
Here is the email interview:
1) Can you give me an introduction of yourself, when and how did you startout and what is your wedding site & business about?
Idea Gifts is a dream turned reality – a dream between two persons with diversified passion, zeal and talents and one belief: One of whom has great interest and passion in gift-giving, brightening faces with interesting, innovative and heartfelt gifts; Another of whom has strong beliefs in sharing and presenting these great gifts to everyone in almost borderless manners, the popular online option.
Many a times, out of the blue, one would say ‘What an idea!’ when he stumbles upon a simple yet creative and practical product. Our strong desire to source and gather such ‘What an idea’ gift products not only led to the humble birth of Idea Gifts in 2007, but guided her in striving to become part of your special day, to be a gift to you, just as the elegant and impressionable gifts that you in turn present to your guests. And that your guests will be so enthralled and captured by these gifts, feeling your utmost sincerity towards their kind presence alongside.
Being “Idea Gifts”, our goal is to search for and provide our clients with the most ideal and symbolic ‘gift’ for your extraordinary event, which may consist of ‘ideas’ from us, or you, or both. With this, we started our collection range of moneyboxes, corsages and table centerpieces. These exclusive one-time collections are thoughtfully crafted and uniquely decorated to make your special day magical and memorable. And finally, beyond this, we hope to give all our blissful couples a wonderful wedding preparation cum shopping experience through our website at www.ideagifts.com.sg.
2) I understand you have been in the wedding-related field for quite some time. What do you think is the key factor to your success?
Wedding favors have become a heartwarming tradition, as loving newlyweds look for the perfect way to thank their guests for celebrating their wonderful matrimony with them. It is this common understanding and belief that the little things – a favor, a gesture, a simple thought add volumes to all the special occasions of your lives and others that help us strive to gather unique sincere gift favors which represent their unique style of their own. The constant additions of new favors and unique handcrafted accessories such as the moneyboxes, corsages, ring pillows and more, as well as our belief in becoming friends to our clients certainly contribute much to the growth of Idea Gifts.
In all, we will continue to develop utmost sincere relationships with our customers, giving them the most blissful and memorable wedding preparation experience that they can have. By closing the gap, we can understand our clients’ unique personalities, cultures and wants, then help recommend, discuss and select the RIGHT gift for them.
3) When you are working with couples, what is it that you are most proud of?
Above all, every couple is so uniquely composed with diversified cultures, beliefs and dreams. For this, Idea Gifts is most proud and excited to present the carefully selected exquisite gifts to them, assisting them in finding one that suits them the best. This is also the driving motivation for us to establish a close connection with all couples and being with them through the entire process. Hence we make it a point to bring the gift favors of interest to them , right to their doorstep.
We are also often most glad to offer our low minimum order quantity to cater to couples planning for a more personal small wedding celebrations. Our increasingly popular mix-and-match order combinations allow the newlyweds to excite their guests with the different gifts available.
In addition, we are most than excited to present our one-time uniquely designed moneyboxes, corsages, ring pillows and other wedding accessories that couples can add to create a memorable exquisite wedding reception presentation.
4) What is the greatest challenge that you have faced while growing your career?
Have fun and enjoy every single moment of your wedding preparation and shopping trips made for your wedding needs. Also, believe in your unique personality style and wants, then relax and count down to your big special day!
5) What are some of the areas do you think wedding couples always overlook when planning their own weddings?
One of the common area which some wedding couples overlook is the ordering period. In our case, Idea Gifts would need two months’ ordering period allowance as our gift favors are imported. Hence, couples should try to have fun viewing and considering all the many options and still note the minimum ordering period stated by various retailers.
6) Your final thought and advice for my wedding blog readers?
To ensure that all confirmed orders made comes with a secure delivery guarantee.
That?s the end of the interview.
