Ding ding ding! Wow, who can already imagine the sound of Christmas bells? Christmas in 2023 is just around the corner. Shouldn't we prepare something to celebrate?
The day is filled with worship and pre-planned warm moments. Long-planned as well as spontaneous plans must be executed! Gathering with parents, siblings, friends, colleagues, or partners. Oh... it's also fine if it's just by yourself. On that day, it should be colored with joy. Eating delicious food at a restaurant, watching the movie Home Alone, or gathering and cooking together at home is sufficient.
If you have already decided who to be with and where to be when that holy day arrives, remember to mimic Santa. No no, not imitating his voice or white beard. But imitating his kindness, which is sharing and sharing with those close and those far away.
Sharing or gift exchange activities can be easily done with Arbre Design Co. You are free to customize the design. The gift you give will be more personal with our special designs. Certainly, you can also give it to yourself (self-love is essential ^-^).
Personalized gifts have been our concept since 2017. We continue to research the development of products and designs. We believe a 1% change is significant. Therefore, our product catalog is not always the same, and the number of available designs is increasingly diverse. It would be very long to discuss everything here, but don't be sad; let's take a peek at the development of Christmas gifts made by Arbre from year to year.
In the first year of our venture, we focused on custom-designed mugs featuring illustrations. At that time, the trend for custom designs was still very popular. We saw it as a significant opportunity. Designs were still adapting to customer demands, and there weren't specific designs for particular occasions.
After a year, we learned something that gave us the courage to shift away from fully custom illustrations to meet customer demand. For us, internal development in the form of system updates, product enhancements, and quality improvements needed to be undertaken to achieve customer satisfaction. Time was also crucial in making this happen. Therefore, we aimed to be trendsetters by changing from fully custom designs to available designs. This made the customer shopping experience and order processing more efficient. However, we did not eliminate the essence of personalization in our products. By the second year, we gradually added additional items to the hampers and continued to create themed designs featuring characters, professions, and K-Pop.
In 2019, we started accompanying customers in celebrating Christmas. A touch of Christmas was incorporated into mug designs, wrapping paper, and greeting cards. The elements used included Christmas trees, Santa, reindeer, and winter clothing. Yes, there wasn't a specific concept yet, and there were no other items in the hampers. But we are grateful for the opportunity to meet the needs of our customers.
Evolving with the creation of a concept, in 2020 Arbre chose the theme "Winter Forest." A "dark" color scheme was selected for a unique touch during that Christmas. A mother and baby bear became the icons for this concept. The design was crafted using watercolor techniques, reminiscent of a storybook. The design was printed as wrapping paper for the hampers' packaging. During that Christmas, we also introduced an additional item: sliced brownie. The Christmas hampers became even more personal with the inclusion of a greeting card featuring a frame design with fresh Christmas elements.
In 2021, we became more detailed in creating designs for Christmas gift items. The greeting card design featured an illustration of a happy family celebrating Christmas. We also introduced Christmas designs that could be freely chosen. The highlight of that time was the simple yet nostalgically warm enamel mug, reminiscent of a "grandmother's cup". To complement the vibrant designs on the mug and greeting card, we aimed for a simple impression in the packaging of the brownie items and hampers.
In 2022, the theme was "Retro Christmas." The Christmas atmosphere from the 1970s to the 1980s inspired us to pour it into the Christmas designs at that time. Using that theme, we highlighted new products at that time: the Mug Jengki, Tumbler Shade of Grey, and Tumbler Wolfgang.
That's the development of Arbre in accompanying our beloved customers during Christmas. If you're planning to prepare Christmas gifts from now, you can explore your favorite products in our catalog and customize them with the available Christmas designs. But if you can be a little patient, Arbre will soon be releasing additional items for this year's Christmas. Stay tuned ^o^)!Let's go shopping for our products! See the product catalog here.
