My new project; Carilou

My cousin and I love blogging & beautiful things. We have been wanting to work together ever since she returned to live in Lebanon, more than a year ago…We have fantasized opening a bridal shop with lovely designs, decoration and personal service. We have fantasized opening an online store with decoration and clothes…All beautiful projects but demanding heavy financing, which is not exactly our stronger force! Making the move and asking for an important bank loan was a bit overwhelming. Months went by and our need for establishing our own business did not wither. At the end of this summer, my cousin revived one of her old ideas; organizing personalized and unique gift baskets. I liked the idea, especially that the timing was good, Christmas was approaching.

Two months later, a lot of shopping and creative thoughts, CARILOU was born!

The concept behind Carilou rests on a multitude of smaller gifts within a large one, creating a theme that would suit either the event or the receiver of the gift. Our Christmas collection has “baskets” filled with Christmas decoration, chocolate, nuts and sometimes a bottle of good lebanese wine.

What about after Christmas?

The concept still works, because we create gifts for new Moms, newborns, birthdays with a theme, graduations, new house, Valentine and so on…

A gift for every occasion…

Happy Monday!!
