Shop Small this Christmas
Unless you've been hiding under a rock this week you cannot fail to have noticed that more and more brands have been vying for your attention. And in this highly connected digital world we now inhabit, there are so many different ways that this can be done. Text, email, social media, good old fashioned 'snail mail'- you name it, businesses are doing it. And the truth is that we here at Cuddle HQ are also busy right now trying to get your attention too. We're always very careful to be honest with you guys and so here it is: being such a small business we need to do all that we can to have our teeny tiny voice heard amongst the chatter. We are honestly so so grateful for every single share, review, referral, mention and purchase from every single one of you. It means the world!
Co-founder Helen puts our mission perfectly when she says:
"I know it’s becoming a bit of an Instagram cliche, but the phrase ‘every time you shop with a small business an actual person does a happy dance’ really is 100% true. Really, truly it is! We see every single sale that comes in, we check every single one - because we care what you are buying, where you heard about us, whether you’ve had it personalised or chosen gift wrap. We want to be 100% sure we get your gift message right - and we want our products to make you and your little ones happy! We are real people - mums in business who love what we do, and working hard behind the scenes to make everything work, When that email pings in to tell us a new sale has landed, there is a genuine delight - every single time. So THANK YOU!"
