My name is Shana, and The Gifting Spot was my first baby. Sometime soon after graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi (Go Eagles!) with a degree in Microbiology, I knew that working in the science and laboratory field was just not for me. I never thought in a million years that starting a business was in the plans but it's the best direction I've ever taken in my life.
I was born and raised in the South, where we love sweet tea, college football, flip flops year-round, and all things monogrammed! We believe that the most special gift is one that is personalized, and know that people of all ages love to see their names and initials on gifts - myself included! It was a perfect combination, so I bought an embroidery machine and got to work! The Gifting Spot began with a 3-ring binder and some handmade monogrammed items I would sell to friends, family, and co-workers. Fast forward 10 years and I personalize gifts for people all over the world here as well as Etsy! Everything you see has been hand-picked, designed, or created by me. Also along the way, I added two "helpers" 3 years apart with two busy little boys, Dylan and Tyler. It's never a dull moment and I love every minute of it!
I'm constantly searching for the newest trends in high quality monogrammed gifts so that I can offer them to my customers, while also keeping classic gifting items that never go out of style. I love custom orders, special requests, and YOU my customers who enable me to do what I love! Thank you for supporting this mom and woman-owned business!
