As with many things in life, the vision I had for Surprise Gift Co when I first began has changed and evolved into so much more than I ever expected. It all began in January of 2016, I had just been through an extremely busy year in real estate and my gifting game was less than adequate, lets just say finding the perfect gifts for my clients were not making it to the top of my to do list. I began searching online for creative gifts I could use for clients as well ways to say thank you for referrals and genuinely foster relationships with my connections in business. The gift cards I was picking up at the last minute did not convey the message I wanted to send; I wanted clients to know they were so much more important than a last minute gift.
Surprise Gift Co began as a way to thoughtfully gift the people in your life and soon the focus became so much more than the gift itself, it was all about the women we could support on both ends of our business. From a product standpoint we have been able to support dozens of women who are running their own small businesses by purchasing their products and including them in our gifts. When we do this we understand that we are a small piece of helping other female entrepreneurs reach for their dreams. We also put together creative gifts for the girl boss to give because we understand the importance of gifting as a way to connect with people and help move your business forward.
And our most favorite part has been our ability to give back. In 2017 we supported teen challenge of Oklahoma youth facility by supplying them with free birthday gifts each month for every girl who was in the program. In 2018 we are expanding our gift back to include the Oklahoma women’s facility as well. This is a big step for us but we believe that as we follow the Lord and all He asks us to do, our business will continue to grow. To read more about Teen Challenge click here.
So each and every gift that is purchased from Surprise Gift Co has a reach that is so much further that the actual gift itself, its has touched and supported countless women in the process.
Our surprises are hand packed and have carefully chosen to be a gift anyone would love to receive. You would put this gift together if you only had the time! Surprise Gift Co believes in acknowledging life’s moments, whether it’s a celebration, a thank you or a cheer up that's needed, don't let the moments pass by without recognition! Life is hard, and everyone has something they are going through whether it's wonderfully exciting or terribly heartbreaking. Our goal is to be there! Maybe you don't even know it, but you are so needed in MANY of the people's lives around you!
