We're all about community
Sending gifts is a love language. It fosters relationships, shows someone we value them, fortifies one's community. When you send a gift, or what we like to call a Bift (gifts from a Black-owned brand), our community becomes part of yours!
We are big on recognition! All employees and/or clients should feel valued! We can help you do that. Looking to send an onboarding gift to your client or new hire? Say thank you for a job well done? Hosting a virtual event? Or just want to remind your employees to take time for wellness and self-care? We have a gift for that!

How Did We Get Here?
For me personally, life was becoming depressing late 2015, early 2016. Turning on the news was met with insistent images of unarmed members of the Black community dying unnecessarily. I wondered how I could collectively give the Black community a hug! We needed some extra love. I saw an opportunity in a secret santa gift exchange I was invited to. I immediately thought it would be a great idea if I remixed it and required all gifts to be purchased from a Black-owned brand. That would be my hug, an economic hug! Easier said than done. From friends and family not knowing where to shop, to non-Black friends thinking this invite wasn't meant for them, to independent contractors of Mary Kay and Avon, gifting their products to participants, I knew I had to make this easier. Fast forward to 2020 when I launched Bifties as a service to making "Gifting Black" easy for EVERYONE! In addition, 5% of our sales goes to a charity doing work in our communities. Win Win! So I encourage you to send a gift from Bifties. It not only supports the makers but the communities in which they live!
