Company Name: The Fab Gift Boutique
Interview with: Sandra Trusty
Location / Coverage: Swindon/Wiltshire and surrounding areas
How did your business get started and who works at The Fab Gift Boutique?
We used to live in France and Abu Dhabi, and during our time living in those countries I got involved in the event planning industry. I’ve had involvement in organizing weddings in the Caribbean too.
When we returned to the UK I knew I wanted to use that experience and continue organizing fabulous events here in the UK. Hence the Fab Gift Boutique was born.
Since we started out, we’ve grown and increased the range of services we offer to our clients.
What does The Fab Gift Boutique do?
Many venues are great in terms of location – a hotel function room or village hall for instance – but lack pizazz. What we can do is transform mundane into something magical. We’re good at ideas.
If a client wants all the pain of organizing and preparing a venue taken away we can do that! But if they simply want to hire venue styling accessories from us and do the work themselves that’s fine too.
Part of our service involves creating bespoke items for our clients. For example, we recently created personalized gift boxes for bridesmaids and best men. The ideas of these is to be a fun yet memorable way for a couple to ask someone to take on a special role in their wedding party.
We also have an online shop offering personalized gifts.
Which areas of the UK does your business cover?
We’re based in Wiltshire and serve the surrounding areas, but as I always say, “Have car – will travel!”
