A wee bit of history

It all began with GiftBasketNetwork Directory in February 2005.
A forum called GiftRetailersNetwork was added in 2008.
Then we added the GiftBusinessOwners.com blog in 2009.
When Cherie Reagor ceased publishing Rave Reviews,
we added the digital magazine Gift RetailersConnection
and published our very first issue March 1st, 2010
The forum was moved to the current ning platform in May 2010
We have been here for you since 2005
and plan to be here for many years to come.

"There's one characteristic to the Gift Retailers Connection online community that isn't immediately apparent until you're "inside." It's the responsiveness of the folks who run the show. They're on the forums, they're answering questions and they're responding to requests. They take very good care of their members. I appreciate this, and I know others do, too." Nathan Morgan of Market Street Gift Baskets.


Congratulations Joyce and team! GiftRetailersConnection is filled with beautiful designs and insightful articles that I’m sure your readers enjoy.

I know many in the industry miss Rave Reviews Magazine and your online publication will surely help to fill that void. I thank you for stepping up to the plate and hope that industry members will support your new endeavor by subscribing, so that you can continue to bring valuable information their way.

While I am having a blast in my new venture, my thoughts are always with my many friends and associates in the gift and gourmet industry, and I wish all of you continued success!

I hope that you will all support the actions of Joyce, Sandee, and Pam as they share with you the years of valuable expertise that will only make your businesses stronger!

All The Best!

Cherie Reagor
