What We Do &

Why We Do It

Where do we start? Gift Hounds was founded in the year 2000 by two women fresh out of college. The business partners, once college roommates, had their sights set far above any job they could have landed at the time. While keeping their current jobs, they worked tirelessly researching the market, the products and the means to financial assistance.


While creating their business plan, they learned a lot about themselves — mostly that they had no idea what they were doing and no one wanted to drop money at their feet.  The fact that you are here, visiting their website, must lead you to believe they didn’t give up.  In fact, they combined their savings, and went forward with their first marketing efforts. If only you could see their first catalog, while incredibly professional looking, it showcased a whopping nine products.  It drained their savings, but the return on investment gave them hope.


Oh, and did we mention, they were running this new gift operation out of their college housing? Keeping their eye on the ball, they worked diligently, finding out every day that they didn’t know much about running a business, but still they pressed on. The results have been tremendous. They have doubled and even tripled their revenue each year making for a successful and profitable business. They displayed their talents at the Salt Lake Business to Business Expo in 2003, 2004 & 2005 and brought home the “Best of Show” award all three years of entry.


Their newest endeavor was opening a new Corporate Promotions division in 2005 allowing them to offer thousands of new items. They were nominated for the prestigious “Best of State” numerous times and went on to win that designation in 2009 and again in 2020.


Keep your eye on this company — it is destined for greatness.

Our Philosophy


We know businesses come to us when they need to look good. Thanking a client or recognizing an employee is of the utmost importance, and we know how to do it right. We have tasted every edible item we offer, and as a result spend hours at the local gym. We know we are selling you only the best-tasting, highest-quality goods. We know the last thing you should have to worry about is gifting, so don’t. Gifting is our specialty, and we love to do it.  Not only do we want to surprise and impress your gift recipients, we also want to surprise you with out-of-this-world customer service.

Exceeding Your Expectations


We believe in ALWAYS going above and beyond what you expect.  Everyone at Gift Hounds lives and breathes this philosophy, because we know our job is making you look good. When you find yourself overly impressed, please tell others you know about us. If you ever find yourself disappointed, just give us a call and we will do whatever it takes to remedy the situation.  Happy Gifting!
