Christmas gift guide: for Her

The most magical time of the year has arrived and with it also the race to find the perfect gift for you and your loved ones. Like every year, GLENI decided to help you in this challenge by creating a Christmas gift guide for her and for him.

While last year we based our guide on our personalities, this year we decided to divide it according to the budget.

Let’s start immediately with the gift guide for Her. Whether you are looking for a gift for your mother, a partner or a friend, in Gleni’s boutique you can find different ideas suitable for all budgets.

#4: What should you do when you receive a product provided with Cites certification?

In our previous article, we tried to explain you more in detail what a Cites certificate is and why this document is so important for us, as producers and exporters of exotic leather goods, but, above all, for the environment surrounding us.

Making sure that an exotic leather product is certified by Cites means not only having the certainty of purchasing an exclusive item made of quality and fine leathers, but also safeguarding Nature and the continuation of many otherwise endangered animal species.

Requesting 100% certified Cites leather when ordering or buying a certain item in exotic leather means fighting poaching and illegal hunting, thus ensuring a slow but gradual repopulation of many species, still protected because threatened with extinction within their natural habitat.

Now that we have raised awareness of this theme and made you more conscious of how our business works, what rules we must follow and how much effort we put into our work every day, it is time to understand how the Cites certificate can affect the timing and methods of receiving the product by the end customer.

Buying a not so perfect product: 3 cases

The most anticipated season of the year arrived in San Benedetto del Tronto in May: the sun was already shining, the beach was welcoming the first tourists and the temperature was 27 degrees Celsius, almost always.

However, the first real day of Summer should be the 21st of June: the solstice marks the beginning of the warm season, of the (Summer) break and the beach days.

As well as sunny days, the 21st of June brings the sales season: indeed, throughout Italy discounts start at the beginning of July. In Marche region, in our case, they will start on July the 7th and will end on the first days of September.

#3 What is the Cites Certificate? Let’s explain it in plain and simple terms.

Today we want to tackle a very important topic not only for us who speak from years of experience, but for anyone who decides for the first time to get in touch with the exotic leather trade sector: the CITES certificate.

Before introducing the subject, we want to let you know that in this article we will not use specific terms that are difficult to understand; anyone wishing to explore the topic in more detail, in fact, can simply resort to a search on Google (or visit our website).

However, a Google search is not always able to explain comprehensively to the buyer or to anyone interested in the subject, what this Cites certificate really consists of, why it is so important and to whom it is addressed.

In this article, we want to tell you with simple words and different eyes “the meaning and purpose” of this document.
