You had me at, Hello
Hello! My name is Alanna, and I love giving gifts. Not the easy registry, one item, throw it in a bag and call it a day, gifts; but the carefully and thoughtfully selected gifts. The kind of gifts that you can tell just by looking at them, that there was time, intention, effort and love put into them. I am my truest self when I am planning my kids birthday parties, or hosting a gathering, or, you guessed it, putting gifts together, because it is my love language.
I also love working with, and supporting our local community, here in the Fraser Valley. So naturally, when I thought about sharing my love for gifts with all of you, it only made sense to combine the two! And thus, Hello Gifts was born.
A little bit about me, aside from my love of gifts, of course. I am a Dutch-Canadian girl, married to my beloved Aussie, mama to our two crazy boys, and cat-mom to our five, yes five, fur-babies! You know the saying, "I remember when I used to wish for the things I have now"? Well I wished for my loving, silly and supportive husband. I wished for my happy, healthy, albeit sometimes exhausting, children. I even wished for a house full of cats! I also, secretly wished for a business like this one, and I am truly thrilled and honoured to have this opportunity. So with that said, I couldn't be happier to have you here, and I can't wait to put some love-filled gifts together for you!
