This past year has taught me to focus on the simple things in life -- and gift giving for the simple reason of bringing joy to others is one of the habits I hope to continue in the years to come. Through our new online store, we help customers curate their perfect gifts for the special people in their lives.  We love working one-on-one with our customers to pick and choose gifts, pack them in a beautiful box and mail them off. Whether it is to commemorate a special occasion, or the gift is being sent for my favorite occasion: ’just because,’ our goal is to bring happiness to those special people we serve.
