Bee Thoughtful Gift Co is a small company based in Co Wicklow started by mum of one, Stephanie.
The idea came about when her dad, Ivan, was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in 2017. He went through over a years worth of treatment including a major operation but thankfully he responded extremely well to the treatment and is now cancer free. However, after he got his diagnosis and during treatment Stephanie received many queries on what friends and family could send to him to let him know they were thinking about him and she realised that there were very few gift options available in Ireland that were really suitable for a cancer patient.
As a result she decided to start her own business which specialises in gift boxes for people who are undergoing cancer treatment, are in hospital, are sick at home, or who need a pick me up for one reason or another. We also offer gift options for expectant or new mums and babies and for various special occasions such as father’s day, Christmas, etc.
The name Bee Thoughtful Gift Co came from Stephanie’s role as a beekeeper and love of bees. Bees have been a symbol of community since ancient times and that is the fundamental essence of our company, community and looking after each other.
We source our products primarily from Irish suppliers and choose only the most natural products to include in our gift boxes. We will never include any products that we would not use ourselves. We also ensure that all of our packaging is recyclable and biodegradable as we don't want to contribute more to landfill.
