Local Business Spotlight: Giving Gifts & Co. May 24 2016
Today we're featuring another local partner businesses in Vancouver: Giving Gifts & Company! They're an inspiring new concept store located in beautiful Mount Pleasant, featuring 5 rooms of locally made, eco-friendly, and fair-trade gifts for all occasions.
Giving Gifts is the brainchild of owner Lisa Pozin, who's always loved finding the perfect gift for her friends and family. In fact, she often buys Christmas gifts in July if she finds something a loved one will enjoy! Here she is with her adorable family:
"At our home we give gifts a lot," says Lisa. "Two of our kids were born in December so we started a tradition of giving all the kids gifts on their half birthdays. That way they don’t receive all their presents for the entire year in one month." Smart idea!
We asked Lisa what led her to start her business, and here's what she had to say:
"I’ve always enjoyed giving gifts, and I am sure you do too. I launched Giving Gifts to help you honour those you love with unique and memorable products they'll love, while at the same time giving back to our environment, our world, and all those in it."
Here are a few of our favourite Giving Gifts that we proudly deliver in Vancouver:
