"This was my second visit to Giving Gifts and during both visits I received a warm reception from both of your associates and both associates were very helpful, courteous and professional. I also love the concept of your store: to support local artists and charities. Giving Gifts sells meaningful merchandise and I will definitely become a regular customer. We need more stores like Giving Gifts. By the way, Giving Gifts is a very good name for your store and it's easy to remember the name too."

“I could not be happier about my experience with Giving Gifts! From the beginning to the end of the process, Lisa has been marvellous with me, helping me and solving all my queries! In addition to this, the card sent was beautiful and there was even a customized envelope that wasn’t even part of the deal, just an additional touch from Giving Gifts. Amazing! 
I can only recommend their cards and services,  by far the best I have used sending cards! Thanks again Lisa and all whom participated in the creative process of the cards!!!”

It arrived really well packaged and looks fantastic. Oh and PS - you have the BEST pricing on these bottles... anywhere! Giving Gifts gets 5 stars from me! :)  Thanks again, Kristine

"I have always been impressed with the high quality and socially conscious items for sale at Giving Gifts.
Each item has been selected for an important reason, and it's great to be able to read how I, as a consumer, am giving back to the community when I purchase the products from this store.
Lisa is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, honest, and quick to respond when I have any questions about a particular item. Her customer service is top-notch and her strong convictions about each item she sells is evident.
I look forward to watching for new items that Lisa bring into the shop, and will happily continue to support this wonderful business!"

 - Krista via Email, July 15th, 2014

"Thank you so much!! I have the 500mL of this bottle (and love it!) but wanted to get a slightly bigger one. I searched for Canadian vendors online and struck gold when I found your shop! I love the premise of your business and am thrilled to know that I can get such awesome AND impactful gifts here in Canada. Plus a personal email regarding the item and shipping info instead of an automatic response? It just doesn't get any better. I will certainly be ordering again from you in the future!

"I just received my gifts! They are awesome!! I can't express enough how I love them all! I am dying to try them and thank you so much for your surprise, you pick the colours exactly in my liking and I can't believe how this bag is HUGE!!! I already have two fold-up polyester bags and honestly they are two times smaller easily!

I also love the package than contains only little plastic, it's very nice when you buy environment-friendly stuff to receive it in cardboard and paper!

I love your store and I would definitely recommend it and I would definitely shop there in the future if I need something you have.

I thank you so much! I feel like it's Christmas again ;o)"
