ABOUT US

Good Gifts was founded on these six simple words. Six simple words that mean a lot. 

DO GOOD   All of our artisans earn living incomes while building their businesses, preserving their artistry, and reinvesting in their communities. 

GIFT GOOD  We scoured the globe in search of well-made, sustainably sourced and eco-friendly gifts. And, of course, they had to look good too.  

FEEL GOOD  Every gift has a story. And you can feel good knowing your gift has a good one.  Read more about your gift’s impact. 


CHRISTINE LELACHEUR, GOOD GIFT'S FOUNDER + OWNER

Christine believes the best ideas are born at the intersection of desires and frustrations. 

After years of doing the corporate thing, Christine was ready for something a bit different. She was guided by her sense of wanderlust, quest to support others in the social enterprise space, and desire to keep doing her own thing ( she lovingly refers to herself as a multi-preneur). 

But she was also driven by frustrations that kept bubbling to the surface. Having moved from western Canada to Toronto, Christine was well aware of the limited gifting options she had when sending gifts across Canada. And, with two young kids and a typical Toronto house with little to no storage, she was also growing tired of too much stuff. More importantly, how that stuff was made.  She's still a recovering fast-aholic, but Christine is learning to slow down and be more thoughtful with her purchases including her gifting. So thoughtful, she decided to create a company that helps others do the same while helping marginalized populations create economic independence, preserve their craft, and build their communities.

Christine also believes in connection and customer service. Want to say hello? Have a question? Need help picking out the perfect gift? Contact Christine and she'll be happy to help you out.
