Hi, I am Rebecca Harrison and I created Gifts Two Give. As this is my first blog post, I thought I should tell you a little about myself and what we do here.
I live Chaddleworth West Berkshire and have been working in promotional merchandise for many years, about 1 year ago I decided to set up my own business. I wanted to supply personalised and promotional gifts which are useful, sustainably sourced and that I would be pleased to receive myself. As well as looking after the planet, I also wanted the business to give back to others.
From those thoughts Gifts Two Give was created. I chose the name as when you buy a gift you give twice. Once to the person you give the gift to and once to charity, as 10% of net profits are given to charity. The chosen charity is young minds, who help children and young people with their mental health and well being.
We have had a lot of fun finding new suppliers, taking great pictures for the website, instagram and pintrest and coming up with new ideas. We keep our carbon footprint as low as possible by only use sustainably sourced wood wool and unbleached tissue for packaging, reusing boxes and recycling anything we cannot reuse. We also only have products that are cruelty free and SLS and paraben free, so you can enjoy using them without worry. We do not use micro beads which damage the environment and use sugar scrubs instead.
