Welcome to Sparrow & Oak, an online gift boutique in Ottawa, Canada, offering a beautiful selection of thoughtfully curated gifts and artisanal quality gift boxes! If you’re looking for modern and elegant gifts for yourself or someone else, you’ve come to the right place!
Hi there! I’m Amy, and I’m so glad you're here! I am the owner and creative force behind Sparrow & Oak and I’d love to tell you a little bit about myself! For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for all things creative, a keen eye for detail and an entrepreneurial spirit. My venture into the world of small business came in my late twenties when I launched my own photography business, a journey that would eventually become the catalyst for my love of entrepreneurship. One too many chai lattes and a pandemic later, Sparrow & Oak was born out of a desire to own my own shop and to share my love of beautiful gift design. From thoughtfully selecting items I know the recipient will love, to choosing the perfect packaging, I love every stage of the creative process that goes into preparing a special gift for someone.
I have my mom to thank for instilling in me an appreciation for the art of gifting as she herself loved giving to others too. She taught me how to wrap a present to perfection and it’s because of her that to this day, I can’t bring myself to let go of a single piece of tissue paper or ribbon. While she is no longer with us in this world, she is ever present in my heart and I know that she would be so proud of this endeavour.
When I’m not curling ribbon, I am cozied up on the couch with our dog and a cup of tea or I am spending time with my family. I am married to a wonderful man who always supports my dreams, and I am blessed beyond measure to be the mom of two beautiful girls who fill my whole heart.
Thank you for stopping by. I am humbled each time a client puts their trust in me to create the perfect gift and I am truly grateful for your support. Amy xo
