THE BESTOWE MISSION
We provide elevated, sustainable, and memorable gifts that people want to keep and share. From local small-batch artisans to ethically sourced products, we craft individual done-for-you gift orders or large-scale, custom-curated gift orders for occasions catering to valued clients, employees or personal friends. Giving Bestowe forms deeper connections with those you care about.
Our Gifting Services Make Gifting Effortless for You
... whether you’re buying for one person or thousands. Our gifts show an unparalleled level of detail and thought, and tell a story that is relatable and aspirational through human kindness. Whether it's 2,500 custom corporate gifts or one gift for mom, we curate unique themed gift boxes for every person in your life and make the process seamless. Need 5,000 gifts delivered to 5,000 locations, branded and sourced locally? We've got you covered. Want one gift that says it all? Shop our collection of pre-curated gifts and we'll ship it out with a handwritten greeting card! It's that simple.
Believe it or not, giving someone a gift can strengthen connections, improve employee retention, increase ROI with clients, and create long-lasting relationships that continue to nurture and grow.
Supporting Local Artisans and A Sustainable Economy.
Our humble start begins with hosting artist craft shows and events in California! They made us what we are and established our relationships with our valued vendors.
Our mission is to offer curated gift boxes people actually want to keep with artisan products that people value and share. Our focus is on sustainability with usable, locally sourced items.
To us, sustainability is much more than just a ‘buzzword’, it’s something we strive for in everything we do. Starting from the source, we ask our vendors not to use plastic to ensure they’re creating sustainable goods and we do our part by packaging our products with recycled material to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible.
These are gifts you can feel good about giving.
Designing and Curating Beauty and Craft.
Meet the founder of Bestowe, Catherine.
I discovered a lack in the market when I saw other companies offering bulk items without any story or meaning behind them. I felt like there was a major disconnect between the contents of the gifts I saw, and the quality and thought that went into making them. That’s when the idea for Bestowe was born — perfectly curated gift boxes filled with small-batch artisan products, each with a story to tell about the artist and their wares.
As a designer, curating gifts and sharing beauty and art with others has long been a passion of mine, and I quickly discovered people loved our curated approach to providing them with unique gifting options from one person to thousands. Our unique concierge system gives our clients the confidence in knowing they have been heard and that their gift is a true extension of their intentions. From start to finish, we make sure that our client doesn’t have to lift a finger to send a quality gift.
Bell Investors came to us for their 30th Anniversary. We absolutely love this sort of project: they asked specifically for local artists to be in the gift boxes. From a locally sourced reclaimed redwood serving board to a candy bar with artwork commissioned from a local artisan, they were overjoyed with the end product.
For employees within the company as a thank you for a completion of group project, we came up with an Office Upgrade gift that would spice up the desks of all those who received. You can actually shop a similar gift in our ready-to-ship gifts called the Office Upgrade.
"Working with Catherine to create memorable packages for our virtual event attendees was super easy and enjoyable. She brought great ideas to the table and delivered high quality products. Our customers absolutely loved it!"
How we give back through charitable gifting.
We understand the choices we make as a brand impact the planet and community. That's why we are here to make conscious choices for us and our clients. We support the environment with our donation of One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization working to reforest the globe. For each gift purchased from our site we will donate one tree to be planted.
But that's not where it ends for Bestowe. Shopping with Bestowe also ensures that with each box you purchase a percentage of money will go to charities such as the NAACP, Feeding America, Direct Relief, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
If you work for a larger company and are interested in working with us on custom gifting, ask us about our options for donating to a charity of your choice.
