Who We Are and Why We Exist.
Update August 16, 2021

Here we are, right in the heart of Summer 2021. The past 18 months saw unprecedented challenges, yet we were astoundingly inspired by the resilience, tenacity and kindness expressed by our valued guests and community.

We commend all of you for persevering through such challenging times. As we are created to be disciples of happiness, support, encouragement and hope, we eagerly rose to work with you in support of your loved ones. We saw an increased capacity to express love and connect which became a distinct opportunity to create memorable moments through unique and innovative gifting. As a result, TGD has grown, thanks to you, our valued guests and for that, we are eternally grateful.

Over the past 18 months we have evolved, shifted our thinking, adjusted our perspectives and the ways we relate to one another. We have become more sensitive and compassionate, appreciating life and the lives of one another. We have allowed ourselves to be touched and moved by how fragile life truly is and how important it is to cherish each precious moment. As we move forward together, TGD is excited to continue to partner with our guests, both existing and new, to strengthen and rebuild both relationship and community.

Since 2002, The Gift Designers has helped both companies and individuals express their sentiments through unique gift services, and we exist to help you make a lasting impression and strengthen your relationships. We provide gifts for personal occasions that express gratitude, love, sympathy, congrats, and more. See our gift selections to find the perfect gift for your recipient.

Our full gift experience takes care of everything! Your gifts are made to order with quality products; includes a card with your personalized message; we coordinate with your recipient for delivery and guarantee that your gift will arrive in perfect form. We also include notification of delivery status along the way.

We, at The Gift Designers, also want to see your business grow through our exclusive corporate gift program. We partner with your business to create meaningful touchpoints for your clients and employees which results in increased loyalty, referrals, and retention.

We are also passionate in our endeavors to empower women and give back to both the local and global community. We do so by partnering with our staff and valued guests to support organizations like Opportunity International as well as local charities.

About the Owner

About us and Noreen. Why we exist. Who we are.

Noreen Ward, Owner

Since participating in a selective entrepreneurship program as a young adult, Noreen Ward wanted to start her own business. In 2002, the oil and gas business she worked for closed its doors, and she leaped at her friend’s proposition to start up a gift basket company. Within two years, Noreen had bought out the whole business.

Each day in her tiny basement suite, she would roll up her bed (a camping mat) to make room for baskets and inventory. In 2004, TGD was officially online and catered to personal and corporate audiences. Eventually, she moved into a larger home, but when she couldn’t squeeze any more baskets into the bathtub :), she moved the company into an industrial warehouse space (2013).

By 2017, Noreen had grown the business to five employees, including her own in-house courier. She continues to expand the business and aims to become an innovative leader in the gifting industry.
