This site is for your creative and business-building empowerment. Here is where you’ll find ideas, tips, and resources to make and sell gift baskets whether you’re in a home studio, retail store, drop shipper, or manufacturer.

I’m Shirley George Frazier, industry veteran and best-selling author. My journey began in 1990 after my husband, John, needed a gift for a co-worker and had difficulty finding something that fit the occasion. That’s when gift baskets came into my life. Now I’m honored that you’re here to learn how gift baskets will fit into your life and ongoing business.
