Curated Gifts // Cascata // April Vendor to Remember
This week I had the chance to sit down with Kristina from Cascata Gifts. Cascata is an online gifting shop for personalized, curated gift boxes. These gifts can be used to ask your bridal party to be a part of your wedding day, a gift for your parents or wedding parties, welcome boxes for out of town guests and so much more – it’s such a unique service, there are tons of ways to use Kristina’s creations!
How did you get into this business?
Cascata started as a small curated gifting company that has since grown to the successful nationwide business that it is today. Kristina shared with me that she has had a lot of people in her life who have been effected by cancer and death. She had one friend in particular that she was sending flowers to every week in the hospital, when she found out that cancer patients can’t have flowers in their rooms. It was then, that Kristina started making these special boxes. She started working her way into the world of corporate retail but wanted to do more. So she started making care packages.
Cascata’s mission is to make thoughtful gifting simple. It’s a boutique gifting studio that offers high-end products customized to each person’s needs.
“For any life event. Good, bad and everything in between”
What is your most ordered box, or most commonly ordered type of box?
Kirsitna immediately knew the answer to this was wedding welcome boxes or corporate gifting.
Her wedding welcome boxes are entirely customizable. They can include:
- Sweet and salty treat
- Candles with couples name
- Hangover kits
- Custom treats
- Custom packaging
- Local favorites
Can people request specific items be included?
Every package is customizable and personalized for that person with their budget and style in mind. And there’s NO minimum order! Every gift comes with a personalized hand written note.
Kristina ships all across the US, which means that bridesmaid or aunt out of town can still share in the love. Use these to ask friends to be in your wedding party or be gifts to the attendants or family members, or even gifts for those that throw you a shower or party….or as the prize at a wedding shower. She can also make these into your guest welcome boxes for the hotel room block – super cute!!
