Made to Order

Recently I’ve been doing some looking into when it comes to the entire gifting experience. That includes not only what’s in the box, but the box itself – the delivery service, the wrapping, the ribbon, the card and so on. Along this research journey, I discovered a lovely little brand called muffymade, created by Meredith Shaw, a Toronto-based singer / songwriter, model and radio personality (and apparently, a very talented artist) alongside Nicole Clark, a marketing and retail expert.

muffymade chocolates

muffymade, as I noted above, is a complete collection of gift wrap, greeting cards and giftware – including coffee mugs, party favours and more! What sets it apart is Meredith Shaw’s adorable, hand-drawn artwork. Rendered in a whimsical, childlike manner, each piece in the line seriously stands out as the gift you’re intrigued to open or the card you want to place on your mantle.

muffymade greeting cardsAbout that name? It speaks to designer Meredith’s longstanding interest in design and greetings. Apparently as a child, she used to hand-sign all of her handmade cards for loved ones’ birthdays and other occasions with ‘muffy made it’ on the back – hence the application to this sweet lineup of greetings, wrap and giftware.

muffymade I doWhile you can purchase items from muffymade‘s line a la carte (with pre-made cards at $4.50 each), you also have the option to get custom design done. If you’re planning a special event – from a wedding to a conference to a special birthday party to a major announcement – simply contact for details on how to get your one-of-a-kind project off the ground. The prices are actually pretty reasonable – a set of 10 greeting cards including design is just $50. I love the idea of carrying a distinct look and feel like what muffymade has going on throughout an event; it’s a great way to unify everything from your invites to your place settings to your programs and beyond, adding a charming touch to the festivities.

muffymade GiftWrapSetIf you have special requirements for whatever party you’re throwing – maybe you want to hand out mini chocolates, as at the top of this post, or perhaps you need custom window decals – pretty much anything is possible. But if you are looking for the ready-to-go items, there’s still plenty to choose from, including muffymade‘s signature ‘doodle wrap’ ($7 a roll) that not only grabs your attention when placed on a gift table or tucked under a tree, but can also offer a fun opportunity to colour in the paper for the kiddies (the same can be said of muffymade‘s website, for the record).

muffymade mugThe off-the-shelf line is rounded out (for now, anyway) by a cute collection of mugs ($12), including the wedding-themed one above. If a friend happens to adore the fun look and feel of a muffymade card you give them or the wrapping paper, then for your next gift-giving occasion, why not buy a mug and stuff it with their favourite tea or bag of gourmet beans?

Now those of you that took the bait above and checked out muffymade‘s super fun and interactive website will notice there aren’t too many details about the products on there. So to help you out, again, if you’re looking for a custom piece, simply email If however, you simply want to check out or purchase the line on its own, a list of retailers is highlighted above – go crazy!

And some more lovely and cheerful news for you guys: I’ve got a muffymade prize package to give away!

    Of the products in the muffymade lineup, I love the personalized chocolates the most.

My new home will be ready oh so soon but in the meantime please keep in touch by signing up for muffymail”
