why partner with us?
KEEP IT LOCAL: We work hard to source all of our gifts from local businesses.
GIVING BACK: A percentage of our net proceeds goes to organizations serving our communities.
PROMOTION: Our goal is to highlight the artisan behind each of our products because we know how much work and perseverance and courage goes into creating a product, and we want to recognize your effortsin our gifts, our blog, newsletters, and social media.
how it works
We have two options to collaborate:
FEATURED PRODUCT: We feature your product in our Papaya-curated gift sets. You tell us about your product, what you love about it, and we find (or design) the gift collection that best compliments your product.
GIFT SET DESIGN: You design and curate a gift collection (of your products and/or other locally-sourced products). We take care of the rest (wholesale orders, packaging design, pricing, online sales, and shipping)!
