Hi! I'm Shiella, the creator of My Gift Maker and a mummy to my 3 most precious and lovely children.
Crafting has always been a constant in my life since young. Half a decade ago, my life as a full-time mum and a full-time teacher was fast moving. So one of my many ways to slow down time was crafting and indulging in all things artsy.
Personalised gifting was introduced into this business last year in early 2020. Before that came about, I started off by labelling things around my house - my pantry, storage boxes, my kid’s art supplies etc. I did the same with my children’s items and personalised their clothes, water bottles, bags and many more. On my last day of work in Dec 2019, I decided to make personalised gifts for my ex-colleagues and they were in love! They encouraged me to make a business out of this and the following year, I did just that. I can never thank them enough as My Gift Maker became what it is today because it started off with their endless encouragement.
With the help of family and my husband, who is the greatest cheerleader and supporter, we fulfilled orders after orders - from personal to corporate. What started out as my personal creative therapy immediately turned into a business that puts smiles across faces. Each happy smile and the great feedback received motivates me to continue curating more gifts.
I am filled with gratitude when I look back and see how this little hobby has grown. I can't thank you all enough for your support since then. It has helped this humble business to grow, and continue growing. Your lovely comments give me fuel to keep curating the most beautiful instagram-worthy gifts that is treasured by you and those you love!
