Tahoe Gifting Co began as "Tahoe Welcome Baskets," and as you can guess, we did one thing: gift baskets. While we now offer a lot more than that, from wedding gifting to on-site gifting stations for corporate and milestone events, that focus on interpersonal exchange is still at the heart of what we do. How can we make something that feels as personal as if you put it together yourself?
Simple: let you create your own custom gifts. We built an easy-to-use, hyper customizable Create Your Own online tool where you can shop our entire inventory, pick the products you love, choose your packaging, and even include a handwritten card. Read on to learn more about how our Create Your Own tool works, and tips and tricks for making an impact with custom gifting.
Why Create Your Own?
Experts agree corporate gifting is going from canned to custom, a trend we wholeheartedly believe in. Gifts stand out more when they arrive at unexpected moments and include personalized products. Plus, there’s this magic moment of connection when we perfect a new gift set idea: we can visualize it at the event, or arriving at someone’s home. We can imagine the way that gift exchange will make both the giver and recipient feel. We want you to feel that, too.
There are really endless combinations when it comes to our custom gift sets, so we figured, why not let you get creative? You know exactly what you like, and what your recipient’s tastes are. Plus, we don’t have a Curated Collection gift set for everything (yet). Sometimes customers will come to us, inspired by one of our past projects or Curated Collections, but want to make some tweaks. These are the perfect moments for the Create Your Own tool.
How the Create Your Own Tool Works
1) Pick your products
To get started, choose at least two of our artisan products for your gift set. There’s no price minimum, so you can start small or go big.
We have so many products to pick from, so filter our inventory by category: we have Kitchen & Pantry products, Barware & Drinks, and Travel & Adventure goods, just to name a few of our most popular.
You can also filter products to see which items are customizable, from laser-engraved glasses to embossed leather field journals. Choose from six font options to make sure the style suits the recipient’s taste.
2) Choose your packaging
Next, pick from packaging options that are both eco-friendly and stylish. We offer recycled and paper-free gift boxes in a suite of colors, USA-made wooden gift boxes, and gift baskets with customizable wooden tags.
Boxes: A classic box of gifts is timeless. These look so good with custom engraving and bespoke designs, too. If you’re sending gifts across the country, gift boxes are a great choice for ensuring a secure and pristine presentation. Choose from wooden options or Zero-Tree, recycled materials to reduce your environmental impact.
Baskets: These show off a spread of local goods like nothing else. We love them for local deliveries and on-site staging. If you’re making hospitality gifts—for new homeowners, hoteliers, real estate agents, and more—a basket is a great choice.
3) Personalize your gift set
Did you choose a customized product or box? Here’s where you tell us what text to include, whether it’s a recipient’s or a company’s name. We can also do custom engraving with photos: upload a logo image, or even an image of your handwriting, and we’ll personalize your products and packaging with that.
There’s really nothing like receiving a handwritten note in these digital days, so we also offer a card option on every gift set. Just type up your message, and we’ll write it on a card made by one of our local Lake Tahoe artists.
Need a little help getting started? Here are some of our favorite custom gift sets customers have created online. Any gift sets can be shipped nationwide, and we offer delivery in the Incline Village-Crystal bay area.
A Classic Birthday Box
A Sweet Thank You Gift Box

Hospitality & Real Estate Gift Basket
These custom baskets were hand-delivered to local interior designers who helped a new homeowner settle into her Lake Tahoe home. They included local, handmade goods like a Bryn Merrell Birds of Prey Tea Towel, Tandem Chocolates, and an Ebb & Flow candle.
Employee Appreciation Gift BoxCorporate gifting doesn’t have to be limited to holiday gift boxes for the whole office—a client used our Create Your Own tool to make this sweet employee appreciation box for a new mom on their team.
