Inventories will be low. As you have probably already experienced, supplies and shelves everywhere are low and often times, empty. This year is, in a lot of ways, harder than 2020. Manufacturers everywhere are having problems getting products to market and have started notifying retailers there will be inventory shortages for the gift giving season.
Shop Early This Year. Compounding this, raw ingredient prices have sky rocketed (Think Hand Sanitizer mid 2020). The advice being given is to get your gift shopping started early. Inventory will be limited, this will cause a shift to secondary product lines and so on further down until inventories are exhausted.
What We Are Doing. We are continuing to make products and doing everything we can to keep your favorite products in stock while keeping prices steady. Some ingredients, not sourced from our farm have risen 200+% this year alone.
Our products will keep. You can shop now and be ready for gift giving this year. Store soap, lotion and bath bombs in a cool dark space and they will keep, generally, up to a year. Separate shower steamers by fragrance and store in a zip top bag, to lock in scent retention and store in a cool dark space until ready to gift. Keep Candle lids on and store in a non-humid location and they’ll be ready to fire up when you are.
Think outside the normal gift box.While there may certainly be more challenges this year than in years past. It is nothing a little creative thinking cannot work through. Think outside the normal gift box and take the stress out of this holiday. We can help get your gifts taken care of and allow you more time to focus on the real reason for the season.
