Appreciation Tokens

So while I was out doing a little bit of shopping this weekend I came across something unique and instantly had a fun idea. Check it out...

It's hard to see it in this goofy picture but I found these great little tokens that you can hang on a necklace like a charm. On one side of the token it says "Super Customer Token" and on the other side it says "Redeem for a Super Special." Then, through the middle of it is a hole in the shape of a adorable it that? :)

So anyways, here is my brilliant idea...
I have so much product sitting around my house just collecting dust. So, my idea is to start by mailing a handmade card and a token to 7 lucky customers thanking them for their orders. When they get the token in their hot little hands they can choose to keep it or they can mail it back to me by a certain date and I will send them a free gift. Easy peasy!

I'm not looking to make any money off of this...I'm looking at it more from the aspect of a Random Act of Kindness and as a way of connecting with people to see how they're doing. Unloading some of my overstocked items is also a perk...and one I'm sure no one is going to complain about. ;)

I'd love to know your thoughts on this so I want to encourage you to leave me a comment. I may even pick someone from my blog comments to receive one of the 7 lucky tokens that I will be handing out in November. Sound good? ;)~

That's a NEAT idea about the tokens. I've got lots of extra stuff, too!

P.S. Love the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, too!!! (NF/NW, of course!)

I had planned to start it in November but I think I'm going to get movin' with the idea in December...just in time for the Holidays. I hope it goes over well. :)
