We're a husband + wife duo living in Greenville, NC. We own and operate Man Gifts Co and Simple & Sentimental with the help of our awesome staff and office dogs. If you can't already tell from our businesses, we LOVE personalized gifts that are well-designed, practical, and arrive to customers quickly.
In the fall of 2016, I was a freshman at East Carolina University majoring in Interior Design. That December I decided to make an Etsy shop called “TDHDesign”, selling vinyl decals. I would make and ship orders from my dorm room with Nick's help. I quickly became known as “sticker girl” around campus, selling my decals in front of the Dowdy Student Store. Soon, TDHDesign had 500 sales on Etsy and I renamed the business "Simple & Sentimental". We needed capital to keep growing the business so we could keep up with orders and sell more than just stickers. We entered two pitch competitions and won first place in both. Simple & Sentimental received cash to kickstart the business. We signed a lease on a new office space in an incubator in Greenville and hired our first 3 employees. We added a ton of new products to our product line that year, Simple & Sentimental quadrupled its revenue from 2017 to 2018. Now Simple & Sentimental continues to grow and is known on Etsy for our gift boxes, tumblers, and personalized gifts.
So where does Man Gifts come in?
Over the years at S&S we focused on products for women. Engagement gifts boxes, personalized pajamas, wine tumblers with cursive names and monograms, and personalized gifts designed for ladies. Every once in a while customers would ask us, "can you do gifts for guys?". We would say, "Yes, of course!". But we started thinking about how the S&S brand and website were designed for women. The brand colors, the gifts it's known for, and even messaging on social media is targeted at ladies. Guys come to the S&S website to buy gifts for their wives and girlfriends, not for themselves or their friends. S&S made gifts for guys, but those gifts were lost in the midst of other products and the pink and rose gold website.
Thus, Man Gifts Co. was born! Man Gifts is an online store that specializes in, you guessed it, gifts for men. You won't find any pink, glitter, or ladylike designs here. The same S&S team designs and fulfills the orders for Man Gifts Co., so you are getting the same 5-star quality and service, only with a different line of gifts.shop man gifts
