Sometimes gifts aren't for specific holidays or milestones, but a "just because" present can be just as special. When a team lead at Capital One was looking for a spring pick-me-up, she tapped Bold Xchange to find the products—and theme—that her team would appreciate. And the Spring Cleaning Gift Box was born.
We were delighted to chat with a manager at Capital One looking for an employee recognition gift box for her team of 20. With a mid-April arrival date, she suggested a Spring Cleaning theme for this small token of appreciation.
Looking at our list of brand partners, we immediately suggested one cleaning item and one on-theme but non-cleaning product: a bottle of multi-surface cleanser from PUR Home and a Laundry Day candle from ElonWick Candle Co. Together, they create a perfect spring cleaning-themed gift—one item to get the job done and another to enjoy during the workday.
With the products secured, there was one more place to drive the theme home: the gift note. All of our gift boxes come with a customizable gift note that includes your special message on the reverse. For this, we went with a green, floral version of our standard Something Bold For You card, adding a subtle touch of spring.
On the reverse, we included the team's special note from their lead, plus one final touch. A QR code beneath the note led recipients to Spotify, where they could stream a spring cleaning playlist handpicked just for their team.
With this small box, we were able to achieve a great gifting experience that was thoughtful and high-touch, from the products to the gift note to the experiential component. It's the kind of gift that bonds a group, whether colleagues are working across the country or across the hall.
