Project Description

The Omaha Gift Company provides corporate gift solutions with products made by small businesses across the country creating high impact, beautiful gifts that help customers remain loyal to businesses and promote referrals.

We provide a simple yet highly impactful way for businesses and individuals who want to send unique gifts to their clients which allows them to build relationships and grow their business through return business and referrals.

The market is national. We ship on a national level, offer products that are made all over the country but support their local communities, and our goal is to make The Omaha Gift Company a nationally recognized expert in business gifts.

We create gift boxes using products like coffee, cookies, snack mixes, candles, tea, honey, etc. The boxes are beautifully packaged and are shipped in the gift box so that it shows up looking like a gift. We provide a variety of items that allows businesses to not only recognize their clients for doing business with them, but also for milestones within a company or with clients such as weddings, new babies, housewarming, sympathy gifts, and more. We are a one-stop shop making it very easy for busy people to send gifts utilizing a mobile friendly website and a mobile app currently available on iOS and Android. 

We are seeking funding because we've bootstrapped the business since the beginning, four years ago. Now, we are experiencing a time of growth and along with that, growing pains. We need more cash on hand so we can hire digital marketing experts in order to grow our brand and to purchase higher inventory levels/packaging so that we can meet the demand once the marketing begins to work.

Currently, I'm working in the business with help from my mom, daughter, and granddaughter, and I have partners to assist with strategy. I don't have the ability yet to hire, but that is a goal once we get more revenue to pay for employees.

To all of you who are willing to take a chance and support people you don't know with a business you're unfamiliar with, I thank you. It's impossible to put into words the humility that it takes to ask for help and then to also be able to extend appreciation. You are supporting dreams, you are supporting someone who believes in the difference her business idea makes, and you are creating a ripple effect impact as we are able to create jobs out of this ability to grow our business. Thank you so very much!
