Wouldn’t that be the best present for you and your loved ones?! We all know that the holidays are a wonderful time of the year for getting together with family and friends near and far, but amidst all the merry-making, the stress of travelling, shopping, socializing, juggled precariously with the demands of work can sometimes take the shine off.
Luckily though, we have a solution for you, just in time for the festive season. With one of our little helpers, we can take on those seasonal chores that take up so much time and energy, leaving you to focus on what really matters. In a couple of clicks of an email we could be taking on all of these tasks for you:
Researching venue options for festive gatherings
Whether it’s for an end of year party for your office, an evening out with family and friends to celebrate, or a guided tour for your visitors, it can take time to research the perfect spot and make a booking. That is where a personal assistant can come in handy.
Booking flights, hotels and hire cars
It’s easy to get caught up with the crazy end of year schedule at work whilst also trying to make plans for your family and friends. However so many of these simple tasks can be delegated: If you’re going back home for the holidays, the MY PA elves can arrange all the logistics of the trip, and if you have visitors coming, they can easily arrange accommodation and flights.
Writing and posting all of those greeting cards
We may be in a digital age now, but some traditions are hard to break, and there’s nothing like receiving a personally addressed card. If you are including clients, business contacts and friends and family on your greetings card list, this can be quite an endeavour, but not if someone else can do it for you.
Getting the perfect gifts
Whether you already know what you would like to get for those special people in your life this holiday or you need a little inspiration, a personal assistant can help. The team at MY PA can research the best options so that all you have to do is choose which is more appropriate, and it can then be ordered online or picked up from stores by the team’s dedicated driver, saving many a time consuming trip through traffic and lengthy car park queues to busy malls on the other side of town. The elves are even happy to wrap and deliver gifts if needed (though they cant promise a sleigh!)
Making those all important beauty reservations
With so many social occasions at this time of year, it’s important you are looking your best. Everyone is so busy as the year comes to a close and the salon or spa is no different, so give an assistant access to your calendar to make your reservations and avoid missing your slot at your favorite salon.
RSVPing to all the holiday get-together’s
We all know it is only polite to respond to an invitation, but with so many invitations at this time of year that it can be a little overwhelming to try and respond to them all. MY PA’s team can manage your email to ensure your social reputation stays intact.
Taking clothes to the tailors/dry cleaners
Whether your favourite dress or suit needs freshening up in advance of a Christmas party or trip home, or a bit of TLC after the social occasion, it can sometimes be difficult to arrange when schedules are hectic. However MY PA’s little elves are more than willing to make the trip and save you precious time.
Managing email and phone lines over the holidays
We all know about the importance of work life balance, and the last thing we want is to be dealing with work during the holidays, but those phone notifications can sometimes be too tempting to ignore. With an assistant managing your emails and taking your calls for you, you don’t have to worry about any of this distraction and work will remain out of mind.
We can even create your holiday playlists and research and compile festive recipes! The team’s skills and experience in managing chores can truly help you have a more fulfilling holiday with family and friends without the stress of the finer details.
