My Story

Hi, I’m Carol. A successful caterer and event planner for over 20 years. 

With a love for design and a keen eye for detail, my bragging rights include some of Toronto’s largest most prestigious events, including opening the Aga Khan Museum and The Ride to Conquer Cancer across Canada. Planning all these beautiful events over the years gave me my big A-HA moment: when it came to gifting and recognition, there was a big gap in the market. It seems like gifts were simply forgotten, tossed, or left to the cleaning crew at the end of the night. With a taste for artful gifts, handpicked items, and curated quality, I wanted to create mindful, creative, sophisticated, and luxurious gifts that will leave a lasting impression for both the gift givers and the gift receivers.

It became my mission to create an easy and intentional process for gift giving. Thus, Modern Gift Giving was born. Modern Gift Giving’s gifts are a celebration of passion and courage and a salute to local artists and artisans. We empower small business owners, promote eco-friendly products, and support local suppliers.

This is the power of Modern Gift Giving. I invite you to step inside and experience the power of community and creativity in the spirit of giving. You will be surprised, delighted and most importantly, inspired. Enjoy giving gifts you’ll love to give!
