Girl Friday to the Rescue with Holiday Shopping and Wrapping Services
Author: Lynette Carrington
Nearly everyone would agree that during the busy holiday season it would be great to have an extra helping hand with the dozens of tasks that need to be completed. Between parties, cooking, out-of-town guests and house cleaning, sometimes it is challenging to find the time to do thoughtful shopping for family, friends and loved ones. Girl Friday has years of experience in helping its clients complete holiday shopping lists and gift wrapping.
Holiday shopping can be orchestrated through Girl Friday and the speedy service will help you keep your holiday cheer! Owner of Girl Friday, Kari Holt says, “Busy individuals email us a holiday shopping list and we go get the items. Many of our clients have smaller children and it is a big time saver to have Girl Friday go out and help them wrap up their holiday shopping.”
Holt continues, “The process is that the client emails us a shopping list, we go get the items, wrap the gifts at our place and then deliver them back to the client. We also have clients who use us just to come over and wrap gifts that they have already purchased via catalog’s, QVC, etc. These are usually our older folks. We also help decorate and put away holiday decorations!”
Girl Friday even has one client who lives outside of the Valley that has a special holiday gift request. Holt explains, “A man in Chicago has me go to the Tortilla Factory to purchase a dozen of each flavor of tortilla and overnight them back to him. This is a gift each year he gives his girlfriend who loves these tortillas. Another man called me from out-of-state and asked me to go to the grocery store, purchase whiskey, wrap it and deliver it to his dad in Fountain Hills on Christmas Eve!”
Typical stores where Girl Friday will do shopping are Toys R Us, Target, Macy’s and local malls. “We have picked up items from Tiffany’s that were pre-purchased by the client,” Holt says. “Our clients who use this service are usually just normal middle class families that are really busy. Our services are very affordable and save others time and hassle with their busy holiday schedules.”
For those wanting holiday shopping and wrapping service from Girl Friday, please give as much notice as possible. The holidays are busy for everyone and giving at least a three to four day notice to Girl Friday is kindly requested.
“We provide any kind of shopping our clients need, including prescription pick-up,” finishes Holt. “Ninety percent of our clients use us to do their weekly grocery shopping. We also do a lot of house sitting and we will do the shopping and stock the fridge and pantry prior to our client arriving to their home so they can get here and relax without worrying about getting to the grocery store”.
