From Wish & Pink ... I am passionate about giving gifts. I have always loved celebrating, blessing and encouraging people around me through the act of giving. From grouping items together that create a theme to wrapping the gift using beautiful boxes, paper and ribbon… all of it brings me great joy. Over the years I had several friends tell me that they thought I should turn my passion for gifting into a business. This encouragement lead me to start Wish & Pink , an online gift-giving boutique filled with inspired and thoughtfully curated gifts. At Wish & Pink it is our desire to make both the giver and receiver feel appreciated, loved and indulged. We love giving gifts that tell a story, show appreciation and evoke emotion. So much joy is expressed when creating just the right gift and watching the recipient oooh and awe over your expression of love and gratitude.

8 ways to add a magical touch to your gift giving


Consider the personality of your recipient


Think about what they love, what they would actually use and appreciate. What do they find humor in? Consider their surroundings and what kinds of things they enjoy. Knowing these details will help you with your gift inspiration.

Take time in the details


We think the packaging of the gift is just as important as the gift itself. A personal (hand written) note and the elements of the wrapping. The love and care you put into each part of the gift is an extension of your thoughtfulness.

Have fun with current trends


Using marble and watercolors is a fun and creative way to create gift cards, gift wrap and even gift boxes. You can easily use these methods to give your gifts a touch of your own originality.
They are perfect for spring and will help give your gift a pop of color.

Incorporate Fresh Florals


The use of fresh florals adds a “wow” factor to any gift. With the beautiful springtime blooms available it should be easy for you to create a lovely bouquet that makes the recipient smile with delight.

Gifts that give back


There are so many opportunities now to buy amazing gifts that will not only make the recipient feel the love, but also do good all over the world. Find what you are passionate about supporting and incorporate your gift with giving back to that cause. Wish & Pink is honored to partner with Kind Campaign and 20% from the sales of our KINDness gift box goes to support their cause of promoting healthy female relationships.

Know the story


People love knowing the story behind the gift. Where did it come from, is it an antique, who made it….Knowing and sharing these details will make the gift feel special and more personal.

DIY + Handmade


Gifting something that you created and is one of a kind gives the gift an extra special touch.
You can draw, paint and create with the recipient in mind. When I am packaging my gifts, I am thinking about the people I care about and what I can design that will make this gift extra special.

Be generous


Generosity doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. Generosity means giving your time, effort, concern and care.
Gifts are an extension of generosity and are a beautiful way to give something to someone that they may not buy for themselves. Being generous and gifting something they will love will feel extra special.
