There’s nothing better than the glow on someone’s face when they open a truly thoughtful gift. That’s what inspired Portland, Oregon native Courtney Kennedy. After spending countless hours driving from store to store to find the perfect items and packaging for her gifts, she kept thinking how wonderful it would be to create a one-stop shop where you could buy items from boutiques and high-end national retailers, and then package it to look like your most creative friend put it together. But a busy working mom, she put the idea on hold. Knowing her youngest child would start school soon, she decided it was time to make the dream a reality. She brought the idea to her childhood friend of 30 years, Kris Jones, and Glow Gifts was born.
Glow’s savvy gift sets are ideal for those who want convenience, great value, and something personal and unique. Courtney and Kris “passionately believe that gifts are about the person and should be suitable for any occasion.” Their gift sets reflect the modern persons lifestyle with great choices for the cook, gardener, techy, parent, dog lover, fitness guru, wine lover, green enthusiast, realtor, and more.
Each gift set is a collection of personal, handmade, and well-crafted items with a monogrammed, hand-written gift tag. Glow Gifts has over 25 gift sets to choose from or you can build your own set. Choose from items like magazine subscriptions, framed photographs you upload, custom return address labels, exclusively designed note cards and handmade baby items, aprons, and gym bags like you’d see on Etsy.
I am absolutely sold on the Glow Gifts sets for gift giving. The package I received arrived beautifully wrapped in a classy green and brown package pictured above. It is so cute I have actually re-purposed it to wrap up a Christmas gift for a family member (yes, I know, I plan WAY too far in advance!).
Our package included an adorable set of note cards that will be great for sending along to friends and family, a fun family friendly CD and a photo frame with one of our favorite sayings. The gift was very stylish and fun. I will definitely be visiting Glow Gifts when I need a gift for someone in my life.
What else did I appreciate about my Glow Gifts set? The personalized note Courtney and Kris included thanking me for my review. I also like the fact that you can schedule your gift to ship for a specific event or time. Busy moms usually love the ability to plan ahead like that!
You can shop Glow Gifts for a variety of gifts for men, women, families, couples, clients, babies and even pets. Don’t see the perfect gift? Create your own! Glow Gifts offers reasonable prices starting at $39 with $7-flat rate shipping; uses local suppliers and vendors to support the economy and reduce its carbon footprint; and donates a portion of its profits to the Kiva organization, which loans money to individuals in third-world countries to start a self-sustaining business.
