In a group or a family, there is always someone in charge of the gifts. You know, the chief organizer? In our circle, it's my sister Rox and me, Lissa. We do like shopping (a lot).
Finding THE gift that will really please, not the one that will gather dust, is a stress for the average person. But for us, the challenge is exhilarating, and frankly, I dare to say that we take it with flying colors.
Naturally, we're quite (too?)aware of the latest brands, trends and novelties from Canadian artisans - those we've always favored. We have a ton of ideas in our bag to please with a personalized gift... that encourages buying local!
It was at the end of my second maternity leave, finding that I was lacking in projects, that my husband jokingly said to me: "That's your project, your passion! Shopping for people. You should start your own gift business." At first, I found it insulting to tell me that my passion is shopping (as if nothing else matters to me!).
But hey, I was on my way... to go shopping (yes) and my head kept spinning. I had to talk to my sister right away! I texted her, "Come over for dinner tomorrow, we need to talk, I have a project for us! 2 seconds later she texted me back, "GO, we're doing it! She didn't even know what it was yet!
