Rome wasn't built in a day......'A Gift For' was!!
You found us! Now, grab a cuppa and please stay for a wee while...
We are 'A Gift For' and run our business and juggle our everyday life from our family home in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland...we are a blended family of 5. Louise ( Mum, Wife, Business Partner), Steven (Husband, Dad, Step Dad & Business Partner) Daniel, Tommy & Brooke our 3 adorable (sometimes) kids!
A Gift For grew out of a vision, a vision to create something different...Louise has a vast background in multi level marketing businesses and was frustrated with the endless push to sell, recruit, sell etc etc...she wanted the whole experience from choosing the products to selling, so off she went and bought her first bulk order to sell to friends & family...A Gift For really was built in a day with £100!!
Picking the right items was the key to success, we made mistakes and we still do! Selling was just the beginning...Louise was keen to get out, meet people, show them 'A Gift For' so corporate events was the next step... a scary step. The location and set up took a while to get just right...but we grew and we evolved and we loved the buzz!
The whole family are hands on...from quality checking, to pricing items at busy times our family time is sitting round the table adding batteries to Christmas stock. Delivery nights are an ideal time to catch up with our teenage sons whilst they earn a little pocket money....Brooke has a keen sense of smell and will tell us straight which candles and 'sassy shop wax' are nice and which aren't!
Even our parents get involved. The 'Mums' love to let us know which of our 'Gorgeous Tops' are gorgeous. We really are a family business from beginning to end. Our journey may have taken another route in the last year but one thing remains the same, our vision to bring something different, something that we can be proud of!!
