Carabella Gifts helps Kelvin Davis say thank you at Southampton FC testimonial match
On 17 May Southampton Football Club hosted a testimonial match for their long-serving captain, Kelvin Davis, to celebrate his 10-year spell at St Mary’s.
The match was a fitting tribute with thousands of fans attended to witness the current Saints players taking on a select squad from its promotion winning seasons of 2010/11 and 2011/12.
The current side won 5-4, but it wasn’t the score that mattered. It was a great occasion to celebrate the goalkeeper’s career and to thank the Club and all the people that work there who have supported Kelvin throughout his 10 years. This included everyone from players, management, training and back room staff.
Carabella Gifts were thrilled to help Kelvin to thank players and staff on the night. When individuals arrived in the dressing room they were met not only with their kit, but an extra surprise – a bespoke Carabella Gift hamper!
We worked closely with Kelvin to come up with a hamper full of gifts that the players wouldn’t necessary buy themselves, but they would find unique and stylish and most of all, personal to them.
We decided to theme the hampers with products that they would find useful when travelling for matches. The gift boxes were packed with luxury items, including a luxury manicure set for men embossed with their nickname, power banks and stylus pens to keep them fully charged, as well as a treat for their partners.
Kelvin Davis explained the role Carabella Gifts played on the night: “My testimonial match was such a great occasion and I wanted to give all the players and staff something special as a thank you as they’ve been there for me throughout.
“Carabella Gifts understood what we wanted to achieve and produced gift hampers that were really unique. There were so many changes leading up to the match but throughout the whole process we just felt safe in the knowledge that they were handling it all for us so we could concentrate on the match. Lots of the players have called to say they loved the personal touches and I would recommend Carabella Gifts to anyone who wants to say thank you to the people that count.”
