Do you know how many hoodies or totes do you own?


If your like Olivia, you've lost count.


Ask her how many hoodies she loves, and she'll answer two. Why those two hoodies? Comfort, fit & construction- top quality.


Which two brands are these hoodies?


American Giant, a homegrown brand that even boasts NC cotton

Tentree, a sustainable brand that is planting trees with proceeds from your purchase.


Ask us to try out a tote- sure thing. Make it well constructed with a bonus story- you'd have this tote. It's from Moop- a woman-owned company, and will be available in early March.

Consumers are looking for gifts that match their lifestyle. Offering value in the functionality of the item for their day, as well as their values for how the item is constructed. More than ever consumers want to know the company behind the brand.

The desire to get to know the brand behind the product has driven interest in purpose driven brands- meaning brands that give back to the community a local or global level. Purpose driven brands allow us to suggest options that align with your company values, mission and purpose.


Retails brands are also popular for the trust that's already been established in the consumer relationship. Brands names are associated with quality. Our blog is rich with stories about brand name products, over 400 brand tips, to layer in to your gifting & promotional campaigns. When selecting products for trade show incentives or corporate gifting; consider building a profile around the type of recipient that will be using the products selected.
