"I had the pleasure of working with Rosemary back in October when I was bringing a group of 60+ delegates to Ottawa and I needed custom gift ideas with a local flair. Rosemary took my request and custom designed gifts for the group and larger gift baskets for some VIP's. Everything came packaged beautifully and ready for delivery right to the host hotel & event venue. NO MESS, NO FUSS! The gifts were well received and fit perfectly with the overall theme.
I will definitely use GiftRevel for my future events!"

"This will go down as one of my favorite speaking opportunities. The MPI Ottawa chapter has been amazing and the speaker gift I was so kindly given courtesy of GiftRevel.com was the most thoughtful professional gift I’ve ever received. It encompasses a few of my favorite things, road trips, cookbooks, and even coloring books for my kids".
— Troy Peters, Video West Inc
Rosemary was a pleasure to work with. From the initial visit, she listened and brainstormed creative ideas for our annual conference; The National Water and Wastewater Conference In St.John’s, NFLD. Rosemary adhered to our vision of a pair of artisan made NFLD themed shot glasses for all our speakers. The gifts were delivered to the venue on time and were very well received by everyone. We will use Giftrevel for our future gifting needs!

I met Rosemary at the Tete-a-Tete Tradeshow in Ottawa at the end of January 2018, and mentioned to her my upcoming conference taking place in less than 10 days. With an extremely tight turnaround, she had found a variety of beautiful Alberta sourced gifts for 13 speakers, and had them delivered to the remote hotel with a few days to spare before they were being presented; amazing! This saved me valuable time that I didn’t have to shop locally. I won’t hesitate to use her excellent and professional service in the future.

"Any artist will tell you that bulk orders can be stressful and intimidating. With the help of Rosemary and GiftRevel I was able to successfully fill my largest order to date; 300 units! Rosemary personally kept in contact with me to overcome all issues quickly without delaying the creating process. I recommend GiftRevel to any maker."

I feel extremely privileged to know Rosemary Vaughan. When a busy event planner is trying to get all the logistics done for a conference, it is a comfort to know that Rosemary has individually sourced original gifts from talented local artisans. Recently I had a workshop at a hospital in Toronto and needed speaker gifts in a hurry. Rosemary immediately emailed me various options to suit my client's budget. Then the artisan actually delivered the gifts to my house! These came already in a gift bag with lovely tissue paper. The following week, I asked Rosemary to provide several speaker gifts for a medical conference in Ottawa; again the same prompt service and beautiful gifts. All my speakers are thrilled with their lovely gifts. Now doesn't that beat the ubiquitous Indigo card?!!

When we began our search for C-level executive gifts, we were happy to learn of a gifting company that exclusively works with Canadian artisans. Rosemary proposed several suitable options from which we selected beautiful indigenous artisan hand carved pepper mills and hand crafted leather luggage tags with inlaid maple leaves. The gifts were nicely packaged, including our logo and information about the artisan/design and everything was hand delivered to the venue at an agreed upon date and time. It was a seamless concierge experience from the beginning to end and the gifts were well received by our guests. We highly recommend GiftRevel for your corporate gifting needs.
