What’s Your Pet Name?
It’s coming down to the wire for those looking to send chocolate gifts for Valentines Day and the staff is starting to feel it! The phones are ringing off the hook and we’re running out of Valentines Chocolates left and right. With various filled hearts already out of stock and our Valentines Chocolate Gift Basket about to run out, folks are turning to the traditional signature big heart box of chocolates. You can’t go wrong with that though, so no problem.
With all the orders that are being taken, it’s fun to hear the messages that people are including in with their shipments. When we ask “ Would you like to include a message?” many folks are pretty sheepish with their reply. But, once we get them over their self-consciousness about their pet names and inside jokes, the result is usually very sweet! We could probably write a book about it. Sure, you get the occasional weird sounding message and for a moment, I wonder what the recipient will think when they get it but as long as it’s tempered with some wonderful Valentine’s Day truffles or chocolate hearts , no big deal, right? So far to date, my favorite pet name has been “Your little Zip”. I have no idea what it means but I think Zip is a pretty funny little nickname.
So, Happy Valentines Day to all the Little Zips out there! I hope you all get lots of tokens of love!
