Gifts with Impact was born from our personal goals to make the world a little more beautiful and to create an impact. No adding clutter, but offering products that add value. In addition, we would like to tell the story of our suppliers, so that it ultimately reaches the consumer through the business column.
We stand for
& their story
& their story
The demand for sustainable and socially responsible gifts is increasing. We notice this because there is a great demand in tenders and requests from our customers. Business and government are starting to see the need for green products. It must be different.
We want to respond to this by offering products from suppliers who work with people who are at a distance from the labor market, helping to combat poverty, ensuring that children can go back to school and reusing products or telling a story. This means that impact first is high at our suppliers. That more attention and care is paid to the product and that products are handmade.
The suppliers with whom we work are certainly professional companies that perform their trade with care and attention. Their story is clear, honest and transparent.
