Buying gifts for loved ones
We are very much looking forward to our visit from Sassi Gifts mobile gift shop service tomorrow - read all about it here!
Sassi Gifts is a mobile gift shop service, formed by Sandra Samra in 2012. The concept is a simple one of taking a mobile gift shop into care homes, allowing residents and staff to shop for gifts and presents!
Having worked as a nurse herself Sandra identified that residents in care homes wanted to be able to buy gifts for their loved ones, or indeed themselves!, often being dependant on the good nature of the staff to purchase items for them.
Sandra tested the concept of sourcing good quality items and then supplying them at prices lower than the high street. Sandra then contacted care homes and offered the gift shop service to them as a free activity, the only costs being the price that the residents pay for the gifts!
Needless to say care homes run on budgets, especially when running activities, so to have a service that is offered free and items that are cheaper than they could buy in the high street is a great offering.
Sandra’s vision was to build an ethical business where people could regain the independence of shopping and choosing gifts for themselves, friends or family members and Sassi Gifts has done exactly that.
