Meet our founder Elisabeth Jones- Hennessy
Over the past year of continuing to develop Gift Me Chic, it’s been important for me to explore the notion of what makes a meaningful gift. Is it a pretty package tied up with a ribbon? Is it the thought that goes into picking it out for someone special? Or is it the kind of gift, whether tangible or not, that creates a lasting memory? The beauty is that it can be any or all of these things. I am also keenly aware of self-love, do we take care of ourselves enough? Do we always need someone to give us a gift or can we pamper ourselves, even in the smallest way, while navigating this uncertain world?
I have had the great privilege of working as a buyer for the iconic brands, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue. My clientele was discerning, knowledgeable, and well versed in luxury. This is where I trained my eye to focus on the chicest, most sought-after and, of course, meaningful gift-giving. It is also where I learned that the emphasis on thoughtful and timeless gift-giving shouldn’t be overlooked, especially now more than ever.
Gift Me Chic is inspired by both my passion for retail, as well as my travels around the world. It is a carefully curated selection of some of my favorite “finds”, whether it be brands, products, or interesting people making art or offering engaging services. The collections are unique, bespoke, always fun, often flirty, and most importantly, Chic. The goal is to offer something for everyone, as well as make your life easier when it comes to finding the perfect gift.
It is with great enthusiasm that I am now able to merge my past experience with my future vision, and bring to you GiftMeChic. I hope you will enjoy it and visit often. And always remember, if it makes you feel special, then it is a gift.
