From alluring first look to stylish delivery, Chic By Design considers every detail of the gifting process. The initial launch debuts four collections (La Vie en Rose, Out of Africa, A Country Affair, and Modern Cool), with additional collections planned over the coming months. Men and women, wine connoisseurs and sports enthusiasts, sleek minimalists and traveling families are all in mind when Founder Heather Dalrymple gathers her elements.
“The task of finding the ‘perfect’ gift is one that is difficult and time consuming for managers and assistants alike,” Heather says of her inspiration. “The plethora of online ‘gift basket’ companies’ all seem to offer a compendium of the same thing—packaged food presented in wicker baskets. I thought ‘wouldn’t it be great to provide the option of gifting an entire collection of beautifully merchandised quality gifts that tell a story, and offer them in a vessel that itself would become a valued element of the gift?’ Heather adds of the company’s signature felt boxes.
Harnessing her background as an executive in New York’s fashion industry, and the years spent in the employ of high-profile luminaries from coast-to-coast, Founder Heather Dalrymple brings gift giving know-how and taste to Chic By Design ‘Smart Gifting’.
Chic By Design melds Heather’s appreciation for heirloom-quality objects with a keen awareness of her clients’ needs. Leaving no stone unturned in her quest for the perfect gifts, she has assembled an impeccable array of products that discerning clients are proud to bestow. With Chic By Design ‘Smart Gifting,’ she now lends a similar sense of discovery to her clients, who may expect that caring energy has been put into each selection. “‘Smart’
And why should any gift stop giving? Taking pride in elegant, sustainable presentation, Chic By Design partnered with Graf & Lantz to create a versatile, streamlined, and environmentally friendly felt box made exclusively for the collections. Unlike traditional gift baskets, these signature multi-purpose vessels outlast their original function by adding to the décor of any room. Use them again and again to gather favorite magazines and books, organize children’s toys, or artfully arrange favorite household artifacts. “No other company on the market is grouping a selection of carefully chosen high-end gift items that reflect style and substance, and offering them as a collection, beautifully wrapped and delivered inside an attractive, reusable vessel,” Heather adds.
