In September of 1993, I opened a gift basket service in the back of my brother’s store on Robson Street in Vancouver. I expected to have some fun and fill a handful of holiday orders while I contemplated the next step in my career. Instead, I was overwhelmed by requests for my creations. I enlisted all of my resources – my then-boyfriend and all the staff at my brother’s business – to be my Christmas elves, and we filled every order (on time!) with signature Green & Green flair.
Twenty-five years later, we are still delivering baskets every day, and we continue to have fun. That boyfriend is now my husband of 22 years and the team I’ve built are gift-giving experts. Spending our days delivering your sentiments is a gift to us. We pride ourselves in taking time to thoroughly understand your message and create beautiful, thoughtful gifts that accurately deliver your message. Whether your gesture is celebratory or sympathetic, lavish or low key, once or recurring, we help find the perfect gift to suit the purpose and purse.
As a gift expert, I’ve learned that relationship building is about the little things – the words you share, the small gestures you make, and the connections you nurture. Some of our first clients are still our regulars, and knowing that we have lasting relationships with wonderful clients is what has kept a smile on my face every day.
Keep an eye out for celebrations throughout our anniversary year.

All the very best,
