Kitchen Warehouse encourages all Christmas shoppers to Gift Thoughtfully, via The Brand Agency’s first campaign for the client
Kitchen Warehouse has launched its first work with The Brand Agency – a Christmas campaign encouraging people to ‘Gift Thoughtfully’.
The new Brand Agency campaign calls for people to stay clear of clichéd present-choices. No more candles for Mum, no more socks and jocks for Dad and no more foot massagers for Nan. After all, there’s no better feeling than receiving a thoughtful gift.
With knowledgeable in-store teams and a new online ‘Thoughtful Gifting’ tool, Kitchen Warehouse is stepping up to help provide thoughtful gifting inspiration and ideas.
Simon Lamplough, Chief Customer Officer, Kitchen Warehouse, said: “Needing a re-think of our Christmas campaign, we turned to The Brand Agency for help. We decided to leverage the existing gifting expertise within the Kitchen Warehouse store teams, and turn that into a call to shoppers to put more thought into their gift buying this year.”
Dean Hunt, Executive Creative Director, The Brand Agency, said: “Australians waste around $400 million each year on unwanted Christmas gifts. With this Christmas campaign for Australia’s #1 kitchenware retailer, we encourage people to think beyond the obvious and instead choose a more thoughtful gifting strategy. Socks? We can do better. And if my kids are reading this… Click here.”
The campaign is delivered via a range of outdoor, radio, social, digital advertising, in-store POS and an online ‘Thoughtful Gift Finder’ tool.
