Two local, female entrepreneurs have transformed their love of gifting into a business. The Trendy Ribbon, an online gift company in Arlington, offers a fresh and stylish take on the traditional gift basket — turning it into something you can confidently give and happily receive.
The creative owners of the one-year old company focus on providing customers high-quality products (no fillers) and unique packaging and presentation. For example, instead of traditional wicker baskets, they use rustic and modern crates designed to be reused or displayed.
“Gift giving is personal and we want our arrangements to capture the personality of each recipient, artfully highlighting life’s special moments,” said the company’s co-founder Ashley. “We deliver a hand crafted, custom feel by getting to know our clients and incorporating thoughtful touches that make our gifts truly unique.”
You won’t find cookie cutter arrangements when it comes to this company. Unlike most gift basket companies, The Trendy Ribbon offers customization every step of the way – from brainstorming the initial look and feel via a gifting consultation, to personalizing specific elements to create memorable, one-of-a-kind arrangements.
“We pride ourselves on attention to detail and a keen ability to understand the client’s needs, style and taste,” said the company’s co-founder Kerry. “We have a true passion for designing inspired, relevant gifts and treat each project as though it was for our own friend, loved one or colleague.”
This commitment to artful gift design and customer service is the underpinning of The Trendy Ribbon brand and at the heart of every arrangement they do. If you ask the owners to describe their favorite creation, they can’t point to just one. Instead they talk about memorable crates that tell a story -the teacher appreciation gift with a gardening theme; a pig themed crate for a catering manager; a Bliss spa arrangement with a special “Have a Bliss-filled Holiday” notecard; an elegant wedding crate to pamper the bride-to-be; a baby crate for the owner of Clarendon-based salon Urban Halo featuring a custom hairdryer applique onesie and specialty infant hair care items. The list goes on, and the clients are impressed.
“The Trendy Ribbon’s custom gift baskets are perfect for every gift and occasion,” said Urban Halo stylist Hillary Kellet. “It is so easy, the crates are filled with awesome treats, and you can stay in your budget. I recommended The Trendy Ribbon to absolutely everyone! There isn’t one person who wouldn’t benefit from the service.”
The company has a lot to offer this holiday from home-based gifting parties for you and your friends to corporate, pre-arranged and custom gift crates featuring high-end, gourmet products. Corporate offerings include logo branded ribbon, chocolate, coffee and more.
It is evident a high-level of thought and care goes into every Trendy Ribbon creation. In their own words, “We take great pride in knowing our personalized gifting service creates gifts that capture special stories, events and milestones to be cherished for years to come.”
