In February 2020, Jane Toivo started “It’s you I love hampers”, a business that makes people feel special by making and delivering gift hampers to their workplaces and doorsteps on Valentine’s day.
“I realized that many people want to make their significant others feel special but they lack ideas. So, I and my friend Ester started this business for hampers and doing deliveries,” Jane says. Jane added that the initial idea was just to carter for Valentine’s Day that year but the demand for hampers kept increasing, forcing her to make this business her everyday hustle.
“We thought it was just going to be for February, 14, only to find out that people were interested and still kept on asking us to make and deliver more hampers. They always ask why I do it if I don’t make much profit out of it and I just look at them with a smile because all I wanted to do is to put smiles on people’s faces. A lot of people are going through a lot; I realized that by reaching out to them with a surprise always gives them courage and hope” she added.
When you know whom you are buying for but with no clear idea of what you want, “It’s you I love hampers” is exactly what you need. Their gifts are divided into 3 categories; for him, for her and for them. They have selected gifts based on who the gifts are generally bought for by their customers.
Jane says that sometimes she makes plans with the sender to do it extraordinary by accompanying it with a cake. The customers always feel loved and special, especially when the hampers are delivered to their offices. “I make baby hampers, hampers for those that are going through moments of grief or sadness, birthday hampers and I also do gift wrappings” She added.
Their prices are reasonably low and they fluctuate depending on what the client wants. Orders are put in at least two days in advance but if you find yourself in an emergency situation whereby you need a gift at that particular moment, they will always help out but customers are always urged to do it in advance and full payment is required.
