Today I am thrilled to spotlight on Swagbags, who provide beautiful wedding favours and gifts for weddings, parties and events.
From ready-made favours, personalized gifts, party bags, activity sets and gift tags to their really fantastic favour maker there is lots of inspiration for gifting at your celebration.
I hand over to Patience to tell you all about this wonderful Business…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“SwagBags is a specialty online gift business run by myself, Patience Garton and my husband Carl.”
“We are passionate about the mission of SwagBags to provide their customer with the same high level shopping experience whether they are purchasing bespoke packaged favours and gifts for their wedding or event, or simply making a single purchase for either themselves or a loved one”
“We are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and unique, high-quality merchandise with an affordable price tag.”
“The unique “Favour Maker” on the web store is designed to make it so easy for the customer to build their bespoke favour package from start to finish by choosing their packaging, contents and any finishing touches, all in a wide choice of colours to match or co-ordinate with any wedding or event colour scheme.”
“In view of the fact that many of our customers are buying several and sometimes many favours for their guests, we try to keep our prices down in order to be as affordable as possible and no combination within the Favour Maker currently has a unit cost of more than £5 with the average cost being between £2 to £3 per unit.”
“SwagBags also offers a range of ready-made favours, many with personalized options, as well as gifts for bridesmaids, best men, ushers, children, or indeed anyone else that needs spoiling!”
“To us, the planning of a wedding should be almost as exciting and memorable as the actual day and we believe there is no reason why every part of the planning should not add to the excitement and anticipation.”
“With this in mind, we want to ensure that our customers experience the same delight when they receive their favours as we hope their guests will, and all our ready-made and bespoke favours are delivered to our customers beautifully packaged in tissue and ribbon tied gift boxes.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“SwagBags began as a small business way back in 2004 in Guernsey, Channel Islands, making fabric gift bags for children’s parties and providing bespoke corporate gift bags for local corporate and charity events.”
“It was born out of a wish to move away from the mass-produced plastic goody bags and contents and to provide customers with an end product that not only looked beautiful but was made up of great quality items without being prohibitive on cost.”
“Now based in Hampshire in the UK, SwagBags has evolved and currently provides high quality and beautifully packaged favours and gifts to the wedding and event market.”
What inspires you?
“Individuality is a huge source of inspiration to us and we believe a wedding provides couples with a wonderful opportunity to showcase so many of the sources of their individuality, inspiration and joy.”
“Favours for the guests are a great example of just one of the ways of doing this.”
Do trends influence your work?
“We believe it is impossible not to acknowledge current trends within the wedding market but we endeavour to place our own interpretation on any current trends.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“We consider every satisfied and happy customer to be our greatest achievement!”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“Ultimately, we hope to expand our favour and gift ranges to include Birthday Swag, Party Swag, Baby Swag, Pet Swag etc.”
I am very priviliged that Patience and Carl have created the favours from my Vow Renewal this coming July, from amazing personalised bath bombs for the girls to lovely mind imperials for the boys, a sketcher set for my son and some lovely candles.
My products was beautifully presented and packaged, and I am excited for them to play a part in our special day.
