Hey, welcome! We’re an Online Gift Shop based in Cape Town creating ridiculously awesome gift hampers for your special peeps and events in South Africa. Gifts that are just love, love, loved. You know, the kind of pressies you just want to keep for yourself!
Local is Lekker
Your Fusspot gifts – from the baskets or boxes, filler, and gift pieces – are made in South Africa, where possible. We may make exceptions for unique sought-after treasures, essentials, or special touches sourced from Africa or even overseas. But only if there’s really nothing of equal beauty or quality currently available here, and the supplier maintains ethical standards that match ours.
We’re always on the look out for more local gems so please let us know if you spot or make any).
We’re environmentally conscious and very fussy about quality and reducing our carbon footprint. As a green company we wish we could operate with zero waste so we take special care to:
- Reduce –
- Our packaging uses as little non-recyclable material as is humanly possible in South Africa while still ensuring beautifully wrapped gifts are received.
- Our gifts have been carefully selected to be as eco-friendly as possible – we avoid single use plastics and strive to be plastic-free – the exception being food packaging for hygiene purposes**.
- Reuse – our containers are designed to be reused – we try our best to source beautiful gift containers that are designed to be re-purposed for the home or office or re-gifted. We also reuse packaging from our suppliers.
- **Recycle – We recycle what cannot be reused. Please recycle any part of the gift that cannot be reused.
Who we are
We have an unshakable commitment to seek out:
- The finest quality, unique artisanal goodies
- Organic and environmentally-conscious products
- Locally made gifts, containers, and indigenous flora
Which means no toxic ingredients and who-knows-what-else on your gift recipients skin or in their body. We produce or carefully hand select the best locally made pressies for you that are a pleasure to give and AN absolute delight to receive. All gifts are lovingly made, cruelty-free, sustainably sourced and beautifully packaged.
Actually, we is me. I’m Nicolette Meth, founder and designer behind Fusspot. We just sounds better. As for me, I’m passionate about (read: obsessed with) beautiful things, have a knack for the finer details, am a lifetime crafter and stationery hoarding nut, and yes, a fusspot. I love the ocean, the planet, flowers, our country, and I most of all I like spoiling people and making, touching, and staring at pretty things, and food. I love food.
My promise to you is to only include gifts I’ve tested and adore myself (best part, yum! But I’ve kissed a few good-looking-but-tastes-like-my-slop frogs to find you the best of the best), to always take care of you and the lucky recipients, and provide the top-notch service you deserve. And a guarantee to always act in an honest, transparent, and ethical way.
