gracious gifts

Local Small Business of the Week Header

Gracious Gifts provides a great niche service. Half-art, half-gift basket, their “gracious gifts are sophisticated home décor gift items, collectively displayed in a simple, yet elegant presentation.” Their collections provide a meaningful gift, carefully put together and organized in a beautiful presentation.

Just opened this year, Michelle Ericksen runs the business out of her home office in Brentwood.

“I launched the business in April, with the concept of helping business professionals who give customer-appreciation gifts to their clients,” she said. “We give them a quick and elegant option to give a meaningful gift, but take the time and guess work out of it. It basically offers a sophisticated home decor gift item that will stand the test of time.”

Their options include a 24X24 pillow, a cotton throw, monogrammed linen cocktail napkins, a custom scented candle, a cotton/linen hand towel, a notepad and 8 folded cards with envelopes, and a basket to hold them and they offer customized gift arrangements also.

Most all the items can be personalized and monogrammed, and most orders can be filled and monogrammed within 48 hours of the order.

Gracious Gifts offers prearranged gift collections to take the guess work out of things, but also creates custom gift arrangements, to fit any budget or customization.

“They can be great gifts for individuals, too,” Ericksen said.

Here is an example of one of her prearranged packages:Gracious+Gifts+-+Premier+Collection

Monogrammed Taupe Linen Pillow 24×24″
100% Cotton Throw
Monogrammed Linen Cocktail Napkins (set of four)
Pumpkin & Clove Scented Candle
Cotton/Linen Hand Towel
Tri-Star Notepad and 8 Folded Cards with Envelopes

These collections are ideal for the hectic life of business professionals
wanting to provide an attentive, meaningful customer appreciation gift
as well as any individual needing a gift for any occasion.

Ericksen and her husband, Ben, were born and raised in New Orleans, and after getting married, having a daughter and a son, moved to Brentwood nearly 20 years ago.

“The inspiration behind Gracious Gifts is my natural ability to organize and simplify life, combined with my appreciation for the scents, colors, and textures of nature,” she wrote on Gracious Gifts‘ website. “Having spent several years as a professional organizer working with a variety of homes and businesses, the goal was to provide a place of relaxation, appreciation, and enjoyment. A gracious person is described as a pleasantly kind, benevolent, and courteous person, while a gracious home is characterized by good taste, comfort, and ease.”

“My hope is that my gift collections will offer these same feelings for both my customers and the people receiving them.”
