About Us

Gift Essentials is a family-owned manufacturer and supplier of unique gifts for home and outdoor décor, holiday and everyday entertaining, and backyard nature activities. We create and offer distinctive and expressive items that bring joy and pleasure to your customers. Each product is designed in the USA and sourced globally.

Since our first acquisition, we have grown to over 4000 items.   It all started with Blue Handworks chimes and garden accessories which are made in a village in the mountains of northern Bali. This collection continues to be core to the success of Gift Essentials and our retail partners.

Another acquisition brought us our incredibly popular Gord-O Birdhouses. Hand-carved from Albesia wood – a fast-growing renewable resource – these whimsical designs are hand-painted with non-toxic paint and no two pieces look exactly alike.  Don’t let these colorful and creative animals fool you – they are fully functioning birdhouses – complete with clean-outs!

Gallery, another early addition, brought more diversity to our ever-growing product selection with their high-quality Stained Glass products.   In the last 5 years we have made more strategic acquisitions of companies in the gift, entertaining and souvenir sectors which has significantly enhanced our offering for these markets. Now, as the Family of Essential Brands, we offer a broad line of products which has enabled us to grow our presence in the Gift, Winery, Home Décor, Theme Park, Zoo, Restaurant and Botanical Garden markets.

As your valued vendor, we promise:

  • Same Day shipping on orders placed by 1pm CST
  • One warehouse, one invoice
  • Low minimums

Gift Essentials continues to grow and develop products that inspire memories, moments and emotions. Stay tuned for more exciting items, guaranteed to be as unique and diverse as Gift Essentials itself.
