Giving the Perfect Gift with Token

When it comes to gifts…well just call me Mrs. Claus. I know we’re still a few months out from Christmas but man do I love to give out all the gifts. It doesn’t matter the occasion – there is something about sharing a little surprise with the people you love that seriously gets me excited. Since B and I have been dating, I tend to find myself making up the most random excuses to get him a little something. It’s safe to say I’m the romantic of the pair of us, and that’s okay!

Let me give you an example. When Brandon found out he was accepted into a leadership & service organization here in Atlanta (something he’s wanted to be a part of for YEARS), I planned a little welcome-home surprise. Instead of a Congrats card – because I don’t know how to just be a normal girlfriend – I went all out. I got him a book all about leadership, a bottle of champagne, balloons, tons of pens + notebooks (I’m not sure what my thought process was on this part) and left it all at his front door with piles of confetti. You better bet he was surprised…and a little annoyed about the confetti clean up. But the call I got when he stumbled upon his celebratory surprise was amazing. And that’s the feeling I love about a good gift situation.

If you’re anything like me or if you just love to give gifts as much as I do, then you are going to fall in L-O-V-E with Token. Let me explain: Token is a professional gifting assistant powered by A.I. They help their customers find unique gifts for clients, friends, colleagues or whoever you’d like to be closer with. For me, I was on the hunt for something totes random and adorable for B to celebrate an upcoming trip (more on that later). Token makes the entire experience simple and convenient and sends every gift wrapped with a handwritten card. Yes. Please. Their mission is to help their customers maintain stronger relationships, build better networks, and lead a more thoughtful life. Honestly, I’m not sure what took the internet so long to think of something like this and I’m so excited for a company like this to be around!

pro tip: you can’t go wrong with a personalized gift. that’s what I love about Token! they have the perfect curated collections for all of the special people in your life.

step one:
Find the perfect gift for that perfect someone by filling out a quick questionnaire mad lib style. This helps to pair down the suggested gifts to align with special interests, demographic insights like gender and age, and so much more! One fun thing to note – Token also offers a ton of fun gift guides with already curated gifts to help make the gift-giving process even easier.


step two:
After filling out the questionnaire, you’ll get a ton of awesome gift options. After sorting through the range (you can even set your price point), select the perfect gift and include the copy for your handwritten note. Each gift even comes with the most darling gift wrap.


step three:
Your gift will arrive within a few days and you can even have it delivered to the recipient. I wanted to personally hand my gift over to B – one for the drama and presentation, obviously.

So what did I get Brandon? We are heading to South Africa in January and I couldn’t be MORE excited. We have been dying to do a big trip ever since Cartagena and I can’t wait to experience a place that neither of us have been that also ties in so closely to our culture. Brandon has family that lives in South Africa and I know it’s going to be such an amazing experience.

What might not be amazing though is the flight situation. The longest flight I’ve ever been on was to Paris and Brandon has only done 5 or 6 hours tops. Well guys, getting to South Africa is going to take a little bit longer. In comes this adorable cocktail inspired gift from Token. Brandon us a huge fan of Old Fashions so when I saw this in-flight cocktail kit, I knew it would be the perfect treat for B to help him get through the first leg of our flight. Simply add with a mini bottle of airline bourbon and you’ve got the perfect cocktail to ease the exit row woes. I also got him a few other cocktail mixers to help us throw a little “jetting off” party with our friends before we leave. Again, I’m extra AF about 99.9% of the time.
