Augusta Magazine - October 2022
There are so many amazing artisans in the Savannah River Region and it's always special to shop local for gifts throughout the year and during the holidays. The advantage of shopping with Augusta Gift Baskets is that you're able to support multiple small businesses and save time trying to curate a special gift yourself. As they point out, "How else can you support eight local businesses in one click?" With almost two years of business under their belts, Julie and Randall Williams have built relationships with many makers, bakers, roasters and others to form unique gift combinations for their baskets.
Shippable, deliverable and easy to order online or over the phone, whether you're purchasing a single present or buying in bulk for client gifts, each basket is lovingly crafted by Julie, the "basketologist." The business plan also provides a way for the couple to bless each of their customers. With Randall's background as a pastor and business owner and Julie's background as a nurse in the hospital/home-health fields, they understand how special a gift can be to the recipient.
Through connections, a crew of cheerleaders and a team of business guides, Augusta Gift Baskets creates a selection of gifts for just about any event at any price point. Ranging from $50-150, you'll find baskets for baby showers, chocolate lovers, graduations, new homeowners, tournament week and more. The
Flavors of Augusta is by far their bestseller and with good reason. Chock-full of edible treasures like honey from Augusta Honey Company, La Bonbonnière chocolates, Oak Creek Farms peach jam, Watanut shortbread cookies and more, it's sure to say "From Augusta with love."
In the shop, you'll see local businesses like Augusta Candle Company, Buona Caffe, Ubora Coffee Roasters, Stone Roastery, The Frosted Cutter cookies and Trevathan Goat soap. Not only do they support Augusta by using local products
in their gift baskets, they also donate all of their tip money to Christ Community Health Services, an organization providing health care for Augusta's underserved.
With the holidays approaching and unique gifts on the mind, Augusta Gift Baskets is making it easy to bless family, friends and the community at the same time!
