Its. #WCW. and. #SWIPSTAR Reveal.
Give it up for 👏👏👏👇👏 the Minister of Enjoyment and Happiness Rosemary Ihuoma Armah. The brain behind @scarlet_luxurygifts
She studied English at the University of Port Harcourt. She noticed that as a result of social media, Generation X, Millennials and Generation Z have replaced
sending birthday gifts and cards with shoutouts on social media. So @scarlet_luxurygifts was born!
In her words "we aim to foster healthy relationships through gifting. So instead of sending a shoutout on your friend’s birthday, you could send a selection of gifts, balloons ( we stock really pretty ones) and greeting cards. Balloons? You may ask but I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t excited at the sight of our balloons".
Our store is about 6 months old and it has been a rewarding journey.
Our major challenge is delivery! A dispatch bike cannot carry inflated balloons because temperature affects them.
When it’s too hot, the balloons pop. When it’s too cold they drool. We send out balloons in cabs and it’s a bit expensive for clients.
We are still struggling with gaining acceptance but at this point, we can’t complain. In the next 5 years, we hope to be a part of every celebration in our city and possibly branch out to other cities.
Thank you so much for the opportunity! Join us on the bright side of life!
