The Perfect Gift

It’s that time of year when we are all thinking about the gifts and celebrations we want to share with our valued employees, friends, and family. You might be surprised to learn that many of our MBBA Gift Certificates purchased during the holidays are from small businesses, churches, non-profits, and corporations. Highlighted below are some creative ideas for that perfect gift to show your appreciation:

Corporate Gift Giving

We all have received those silly gifts that many times are not used. It might include a special plaque, a piece of crystal, a fruit basket, a box of candy, or a financial bonus to show appreciation. This year, consider giving your valued employee a gift of experience that is treated like cash and can be used at any of our Quality Assured Michigan Michigan Bed and Breakfast Inns. Our MBBA Gift Certificates are valid for five years, and the recipient can decide where and when they want to have a special holiday. It could include staying at a lighthouse, vineyard, or inn specializing in farm-to-table fare. It could include an urban getaway to Detroit, a room with a lake view, or a countryside retreat. You get the picture- options are endless and always appreciated! And the double bonus for you- the gift is easy to purchase, and your employee will use the gift to rest and relax and come back rejuvenated to make a difference in your business.

Faith Institutions

Many of our gift certificates are given in appreciation of a church member- from a member who has volunteered endless hours to a minister who is retiring to the office staff that has touched many- an MBBA Gift Certificate is the perfect way to say thank you.

Small Business Gift Giving

If your business is planning a holiday party and looking for a raffle gift or silent auction, consider including an MBBA Gift Certificate as one of your prizes. This past month, we sold gift certificates to a Michigan Yacht Club and a small business wanting to donate a special raffle prize at their company party. On our end, it’s always fun to see the glee and happiness of the recipient when they call with questions or are redeemed by one of our 63-member inns.

Why a Michigan Bed and Breakfast Gift Card is the Perfect Gift

We believe in doing things the old-fashioned way. When you purchase your gift certificate online, we print a lovely card with your personal note. Enclosed in the gift envelope with the certificate is an MBBA brochure with links to all our members.  We can mail this gift to you for a personal presentation or to the recipient.

Afterward, the recipient can decide where and when they would like to use their gift. Our innkeepers will refund the difference in cash if their stay is under the card’s value.

We have been selling and redeeming these gift cards for over 30 years! We have a dedicated corporate following. Consider giving your valued employees a gift of experience that is always appreciated!
