Christmas in… June? 🎅🌴


Goody Banner

It’s not even Q3 yet, but EAs are already getting their holiday gift budgets. 😳

OK OK, maybe holidays aren’t top of mind in June…

You can still sign up for Goody and surprise a coworker (or yourself!) with a free gift. Then when the holidays roll around, you’ll already be on the #1 gifting platform for EAs.

Just say you heard about Goody via The Assist you’ll get $10 on top of the $20 you get when you sign up. That’s $30 to treat yourself to any gift from our collection (excluding gift cards and alcohol). Try the Parachute Home Makeup Towel Set, the Brooklinen Silk Sleeping Mask, Fly by Jing Sichuan sauce, or a bag of super-fresh Devoción coffee.

Goody lets you send curated, on-trend gifts to employees and customers, without worrying about their shipping details. 🙌

The gift recipient provides all the relevant deets when they accept a gift. All you need is an email address. No more spreadsheets with everyone’s home address and T-shirt size!

So many “corporate gifts” out there end up feeling tacky and impersonal. One of the coolest things about Goody is that they only offer curated, high-quality products from trendy brands, like Milk Bar sweets, Apple AirPods Pro, Levain cookies, Apotheke candles, high-tech Ember mugs, and Parachute robes.

Best of all…Giftees can swap out gifts for ones of equal or lesser value. No more one-size-fits-all gifts for your diverse (and picky) team.

Go head, make someone’s day


Have a Happier (last few days of) June
