I launched my company With Love, From PDX in 2015 to offer custom gifting services for busy professionals, corporations, and special occasions. Portland’s a city fueled by coffee, relentless in our pursuit of innovation, and insatiable about creativity. That’s what makes our city home to hundreds of small businesses. There’s no place quite like Portland.
With every gift box curated, it’s my hope that I capture the essence of what makes Portland such a great city. I’ve spent the last few years getting to know many of the small businesses that I partner with to offer gifts. I’ve wanted to launch a blog series that shares their stories, tips for gifting, and ideas for creating that perfect gift for your someone special.
Portland has a plethora of local shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues that showcase our city’s talent. Those same business owners have launched creative brands that have drawn national attention and celebrate the best our city has to offer from apparel company Tanner Goods, food empire Jacobsen Salt Company, and restauranteurs Paley’s, Ava Gene’s, and Departure. It’s a fascinating city with so much to explore and foraging for locally-made gift items is what I do best. I look forward to sharing my journey and offering you some amazing items for your gifting experiences.
