Make Gift Giving Thoughtful

I have always loved to give (and receive) gifts but specifically to give gifts that are reflective of the recipient and their interests. For many years, in my prior career, I did quite a bit of business traveling. When visiting other cities, I was under-whelmed by the sameness in malls from city to city. There were the same chain stores with the same merchandise and nothing different. Most of the merchandise was imported with less and less being made in the USA.

So, I always sought out the small independent boutique that had the rare find and supported US artists. I usually had my holiday shopping done way before the holidays because I would find the perfect gifts for friends in my travels – gifts that were thoughtful and reflective of each friend’s personality. As gifts were presented and opened, it was gratifying to see the enjoyment that they brought because of the thought put into them.

When, I decided to transition into a new career, I realized that I loved to give gifts and I loved things that were creative and unique. So, I opened an eco-conscious specialty boutique that features gifts, jewelry and wearable art that are Made in the USA and functional art made from recycled and repurposed materials. Each gift is artfully wrapped to make a great presentation.

In our fast paced, computer driven world, where people have little time to shop, I can work with you to find the perfect gift for friends, family or business associates. I will help you put some thought into each gift. Believe me, the recipient can tell when someone just thoughtlessly bought a gift because they had to. Make everyone feel special – give the gift that shows you cared.

So think of me as ecogal, your gift guru. I will save you time, effort and make you look good!
