The premier baby-gifting service has signed up super early for next year's event.
Bebedeparis, the international e-commerce business that specialises in providing baby gifts and hampers to company employees and clients that are about to have a baby, has re-signed for the HR Indaba Africa 2019. They have taken advantage of the early-bird discount, which exempts the company from paying the increased rate to showcase at next year’s event. Bebedeparis creates customised gifts that can be personalised with the company’s logo and have the baby's name on the gift, which just makes the gift a little bit more special.
“How it works is, the employer gives us a budget and a preference for what kinds of gifts they want, and we assemble it for them at a special price. To top it off, we have the gifts delivered to the hospital, clinic or home by a bell boy or porter that is dressed in full uniform in Gauteng at the moment and to the rest of the country by courier. So it's a unique product and experience for the recipient,” says Bebedeparis MD Peet Erasmus.
"The employer can choose out of our range of readymade hampers or any products out of our Bebedeparis range to make up their own hamper within their budget. We have a range of products from clothing and baby cutlery to toys, gift sets, blankets and bottles."
Peet says there has definitely been a demand for what they offer because most companies often have a budget to buy a gift for employees who have just become parents. For those that don’t, it is common for the colleagues of the expectant parent will pool funds together to get something or have a baby shower for their colleague.
“Employees feel valued and appreciated when they receive an original and thoughtful gift from the employer. Usually, companies will simply send flowers or chocolates with a card or something like that but this is more personalised, trendy and meaningful,” says Peet.
