The 2019 Christmas Gift Guide is coming!
For the 3rd year in a row I’ll be curating a Christmas Gift Guide for consumers.
Adding to our year-round B2B promotion, the Gift Guide shines a spotlight on our industry’s best festive finds. Giving 6 weeks of promotion and reaching over 200,000 festive shoppers.
My name is Charlotte and I launched Card & Gift Network way back in 2009. My aim was to get the greetings and giftware businesses I loved more attention.
I’d been working for a card and gift publisher for over 6 years and I knew first-hand how many businesses in the industry were struggling to survive in a tough retail climate.
Today, the mission continues to help card & gift businesses find their fans, sell more & thrive!

Card & Gift Network’s values

If your style is profits at all costs, you may be in the wrong place. I believe in community not competition. We’re stronger when we work together and support each other. If you want to create products & a business with heart and soul I’m there for you.
A Tea & Kindness Methodology
You’ve heard of the ‘carrot and stick’ approach right? Well, here at C&G HQ it’s carrots all the way. Ok, let’s be real, carrot cake… with a cup of tea. My aim is to help you make the most of the online world in a calm, supportive manner at all times.
Committed to Creative Thinking
I’m committed to thinking creatively. Whether it’s a lack of sales or you’re having trouble managing all the different hats of a small business owner, I believe there is a creative solution to your problem. And you know what? We’re gonna find it!
What people are saying
“Charlotte’s knowledge, enthusiasm and unselfish support has been much appreciated since we started out designing and making greeting cards. Having someone like Charlotte ‘flying the flag’ for independent companies in the highly competitive card and gift market has given us the opportunity to reach retailers and consumers through her network site which we would have never been able to do. When working with Charlotte she has always been friendly, efficient and completely professional.”
“Having expert knowledge of a topic is one thing – being prepared to devote so much of your time to sharing that knowledge in an effort to help other people is another entirely. I have shamelessly picked Charlotte’s brains on a wide array of topics for as long as I’ve known her, and have never received anything less than a patient, fulsome and fact-filled reply from her: she always finds the time to give you her complete attention, and if she can’t find time, then she makes it. I have long held the belief that she is someone who doesn’t actually sleep.”
