I Do! Traditional Wedding Gifts From Around The Globe

Love is a universal feeling. And, when two people vow to spend the rest of their lives in union, it’s usually a cause for a momentous celebration worthy of well wishes and festivities. Although not all love stories end in blissful matrimony, we cannot help but appreciate the power of love and the many ways in which it is expressed worldwide. One of the most fascinating things about our society is how the same occasion can be carried out differently amongst various cultures and countries. Just as cultural customs are diverse, so are the traditions and rituals surrounding marriage and wedding occasions. Innumerable wedding traditions from around the globe symbolize wealth, romance, unity, and health. 

In honor of the wedding season, we’ve taken a closer look into the most awe-inspiring wedding traditions from around the world. Let’s take a closer look at traditional wedding gifts and wedding traditions that go well beyond the bouquet toss.

Back To School: How You Can Prepare For The New School Year

Summer is coming to an end, and it’s time to prepare for another school year. However, back-to-school planning may look a little different this time around. As a parent, not only must you ensure that the kids stock up on stationery, but navigating post-Covid anxiety is now on the to-do list as well. And, considering that most learners have not experienced consistent in-person schooling since March 2020, ‘first day jitters’ suddenly have a whole new meaning. 

But, fret not. There are simple ways you can make back to school a success! Start by reminding yourself that returning to school is a good thing, especially if you’re a student. School provides an environment for vital social interaction during our developmental years. And during the midst of the pandemic, these interactions were almost non-existent. As the world attempts to jump back into routine, we’d like to help you do the same. Read below as we share a few tips to help parents, students, and teachers conquer a new school year.

Islamic New Year: Traditions, Celebrations, and Prayer

The world is a melting pot of traditions, religions, cultures, and backgrounds. One of the fascinating parts of our existence is that we are all different, and this diversity should be acknowledged and appreciated. No matter where you are in the world, the coming of a new year is a time of deep reflection and gratitude for the year that has passed.

The Origin of Father’s Day: Celebrating Dads Around the World

There’s no point talking about the origin of Father’s Day if we don’t first talk about the man in question: dear old dad. He may have questionable style and insist on doing things the ‘old-fashioned way’ (no matter how often you tell him that there’s an app for that now). However, he is ‘dad,’ you adore him, and you’re a part of him. In fact, science proves that, genetically, we are more like our fathers than our mothers! So yes, we’ve all got more dad jokes in our DNA that we’d opt for. 

But, besides their somewhat loveable absurdity, fathers play a vital role in shaping and preparing us for the real world. This means that being a dad is one of the most important jobs one could ever have. And, you’d have to agree that anyone who takes on this role deserves to be celebrated. That’s why we’re diving into the origin of Father’s Day and how it’s celebrated around the world. Plus, we have unique gift ideas for you to make this Father’s Day the most memorable one yet, no matter where dad may be. Read below to learn more.

Upgrading Your Employee Rewards Program With Corporate Gifting

Between the 1940s and 1960s, some employees retiring from the workforce would receive an engraved 18-karat gold watch as recognition for their years of service. Being an eagerly awaited reward, it sounded like a fair trade back then. Given the work expectations of today, many would argue that this is not a sufficient employee rewards program. Especially since today’s workforce landscape is much more competitive, constantly shifting, and not as willing to hand out gold-plated Rolexes to working individuals. 

If you’ve asked yourself, “How do I retain these tech-savvy, self-starting workers of the new world?” you’re already on the right track. Research shows that millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2030, so it’s best to get ahead while you still can. And to answer your question: upgrading your employee rewards program with corporate gifts is a surefire way to keep good people with you for longer. Join us as we dive into the long-term rewards for your business when you create a recognition culture through gift-giving.
