As Kathleen Kelly wrote to Joe Fox in “You’ve Got mail” (one of my favorite movies of all time),
“Dear Friend, I always like to start my notes to you as if we are already in the middle of a conversation.” I feel exactly the same way!
Gifting is a very personal journey and by approaching it as if we already know each other helps forge a meaningful connection.
I am who I am. I am opinionated and passionate about the art of giving. I love executing everything in my life, from baking cookies to hosting a dinner party with dedication, attention to the details and a healthy dose of flair.
I adore thinking outside the box (no pun intended!)
I especially love beautiful things.
Beautiful things are not necessarily expensive things. Oh no!
Beautiful things are crafted and curated with care.
The humble candle or pair of socks can be made to feel extravagant with the right emotion and of course the packaging!
I know they say never judge a book by its cover, but please, who does not enjoy opening a fabulously presented gift?
Presentation, my friends, speaks volumes even if you are not there to witness the gasps of delight and sighs of wonderment as your gift is being opened.
Your efforts, or in the case of Giftsmith, our efforts on your behalf (insert wry smile here) express the emotion, the time commitment and the sentiment that goes into a singularly, perfect gift for anyone.
And I mean anyone! A gracious neighbour, a new Mom, a fabulous girlfriend, a colleague, a bridesmaid or groomsman proposal, a loved one or even welcoming a new furry family member.
Gift giving is a true art and our gifting habits are evolving, given our new reality.
Giftsmith affords you the privilege of choosing your gift from the comfort of your own home, trusting that it will be a true gifting experience that transports the recipient to their lake house or sipping cognac in their library.
Your gift may very well be one of only two created!
I curate purely from a place of love and inspiration.
I focus on the recipient and think of all the ways to indulge those flirty palpitations before opening a gift with your name on it.
A colour palette, that can soothe or excite, a fragrance (that moment when your love leans in smelling like soap), an emotion, (sipping Champagne in a claw foot tub) and yes, dare I say, savouring a cup of tea while reading Pride and Prejudice (for the hundredth time). I am an old soul and a hopeless romantic!
So, there you have it!
The essence of Giftsmith. Luxurious and well thought out gifts presented with some serious Instagram worthy vibes for those we love, cherish and are grateful for… or… just for you!
Enjoy your gift!
