A farewell gift from the heart

Thank you so much Aroha, for your great care and love put into the beautiful whakatauki, we chose as a farewell gift for a much loved colleague. The communication, together with the help at getting it to us on time, was next to nothing I have had before. We will be forever grateful, and I know my colleague was as touched by it as we were.

Wedding Anniversary Gift

Tēnā koe e Aroha, the piece is stunning and exactly as I hoped. It was a first wedding anniversary gift - paper - and my husband loves it. He was very emotional when he unwrapped it and we just love seeing our vows on the wall each day as we walk past. It was the perfect gift idea, and you made it incredibly special with your talent and vision - the layout was perfect and you made all the words fit beautifully. Your care and communication made the experience even more wonderful. I'm so glad I found you and your pakihi.
