MEET THE TEAM
Founder & Director
For two decades I've put my life and soul into making people happy by providing the perfect gift experiences! From organising corporate events and adorning beautiful spaces to sourcing the most stunning gifts and innovative branding options, I love seeing the joyous faces of both the givers and receivers of our gifts. It doesn't get better than this.
Head: Sales & Marketing
Enthusiastically showcasing our range of products and services to whoever will listen, I am driven to problem-solve with the client’s best interest at heart! I'm also guaranteed to drive the rest of the office crazy to get it done. Things I say too often include, “nothing ventured, nothing gained” and “there's no time like the present”.
I am a creative soul who loves designing, organising, and even trying a bit of DIY around the house. I get to implement my creativity daily whether it is doing a design for a client or solving a problem. I am conscientious and hardworking and am willing to give what it takes to ensure fluid and effective management of each, and every task assigned to me, with a friendly and willing face.
In 1999 Sandra started booking training and conference venues for corporates. Her first big client was The Foschini Group. Getting everything done herself, she operated from home for a few years, before hiring some amazing helpers as the business grew rapidly! After another four years, the team needed a proper office and moved to the Vineyard Office Estate in Dorp Street.
It wasn't long before we became a team of four and began executing major events for corporates like Metropolitan Health Group, RCS, Appletiser, Distell, and Mediclinic. Functions ranged from long service awards to product launches, year-end parties, corporate family days, and even sports days! Our events enthralled anywhere from 600 to 1200 guests.
During this time the team engaged in full-on turnkey event management while also sourcing gifts and goodie bags that had to be packed with amazing things (even Christmas gifts for Metropolitan Kiddies year-end functions for a few years)! Sandra realised that she loved sourcing gifts to make people smile and remind them of the special times in their lives. Gifts were definitely her thing!
We decided to diversify our services to add a full gifting service solution; in 2008 Complete Gifts was born! We switched focus and grew from strength to strength, still running with a small core team. We executed huge campaigns for clients like Shoprite Checkers, Lipco Law for All, and Lewis. This often entailed sourcing from China, and packaging and distributing nationally.
Our growth is due to the fact that we never compromise on our service levels and always have our clients' best interests at heart. We strive to find the best solution for the brief we get. It says a lot that our very first client in 1999 - The Foschini Group - is still one of our biggest clients today!
We can't wait to see what we achieve in the next 20 years!
