Incentive Travel Gifting in the Heart of Mexico

On a recent trip to Los Cabos, I had the opportunity to take part in a fantastic on-site shopping experience hosted by Mexico Giveaways.

Mexico Giveaways offers a unique gifting experience, coupled with a give-back to local communities. Social responsibility is a key factor in their business model, and it shows through their selection of handcrafted gifts made by local artisans. When asked about her company, Gabriela Barron said:

“I love what I do, but one of my favorite parts is our ‘A Gift that Gives’ program. It started with a small idea that has now evolved into a great program that is impacting many women and children. Our main efforts focus on empowering women and promoting education. I believe in the popular phrase that you should teach to fish, not give the fish, so we keep that in mind when coming up with our efforts. And we have learned that the most beautiful thing of all of this is that when you take the time to give back, it always comes around.”  

If a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity is something that your company is interested in, they can suggest many options. Some options would include building hurricane kit backpacks, back to school backpacks, planting gardens, or can even help customize a CSR experience.

The Mexico Giveaways team makes the experience easy for both the attendees and clients or planners. They provide shopping vouchers to each attendee, a bilingual specialist for each station, and include all setup and décor, making this a truly turn-key option. They are available for gifting experiences throughout Mexico, including Cancun, Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta.

Charm Experience
Best when added to the Beach Bag Experience, guests can pick from several brightly colored, handmade charms to be hung on their bags or used as a keychain.

Beach Bag Experience
A visit to Mexico is not complete without enjoying the beautiful beaches and pools the country has to offer. What better way to help attendees make the most of their time in the sun than by offering them the option to choose their beach bag and charm. Bags are made from a variety of sturdy material, including palm, henequen (agave), or recycled plastic, making these an excellent option for any size group.
