Our Story

BigFir Giving Co. is a small company in the Comox Valley that set out to showcase goods made right here on Vancouver Island by talented folks that create the products we think should be shared with the world.

What's in a name? Living on the left coast of Canada, surrounded by forest, mountains and ocean is where my heart is. Part of BigFir's name is a nod to my Dad, Big Pete, who appreciated big trees and possibilities, among other things. It is a reminder that deep roots can withstand the storms and still grow tall and strong. 

We are so grateful for the makers that trust us with their goods; the small farms, the chocolatiers, the cheesemakers, the bakers, the specialty items like mustards, hot sauce, salts and spices, and the talented knitters and crafters of the teeniest clothes, blankets and little things for the new ones to this world. 

Creating these GiftBoxes for you is a joy. I get as much out of putting my GiftBoxes together as those that receive them do. I've met some amazing people on this journey and I have a never ending appreciation for the heart and soul put into each item that we place in your GiftBox.

Lastly, supporting local folks is more important than ever as the world looks inward and tries to focus on what is really important to us. Know that by purchasing a BigFir GiftBox you are supporting a local economy and making a difference. 🌲
