When our friend Tyler turned 30, we helped his partner collect words from all his friends and family and together we made a book. We expected it would be fun, but didn’t anticipate the delight it generated, not just for Tyler, but for everyone involved. This joyful experience was the inspiration for Fondfolio.
We understand that it’s our good relationships that matter most in life and that there aren’t enough opportunities to tell our favourite people how much they mean to us. We also know that finding a good gift for them can be super daunting, especially if the occasion is significant — like a milestone birthday, retirement or anniversary. Tragically, it’s often not until someone is being eulogized that all those stories and fond memories surface.
Our mission is to facilitate meaningful gift giving for special moments and relationships. We want to help you give something memorable, something that your loved one will want to keep for years. Maybe it will even become a keepsake that’s passed down through the family.
The side benefit of more thoughtful, personalized gift giving is a reduction in unwanted gifts. We hope Fondfolio will have a positive impact on both our relationships and our planet — we think a gift should be a delight, not a burden.
