I am Geanine, Director and Founder of Edible Gift. I have been passionate about fruits and chocolate my whole life.
Beginning in my younger years, I had exposure to organically grown fruits and vegetables. My parents own a land in the country side. They have been growing their own watermelon, strawberries, pears, grapes, capsicum, cucumber, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and so much more. No pesticides are used.
I moved to Canada at 20 years of age, few days after graduating University. I have a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Mathematics. The thought of becoming a teacher was not very appealing. So, I got another degree in E-Commerce.
Living in North America, gave me great exposure to all kind of edible bouquets. They are so popular over there. Everybody creates an edible bouquet at some point in their life. I did it as a hobby for my family. Then, for friends. I love getting creative with food.
When I moved to Australia years ago, I missed the chocolate dipped strawberries so much. The lack of companies specializing in edible bouquets gave me the courage to create my own business. The thought of creating an edible bouquet and share it with other people sounded so exciting. A special gift for someone you admire. That’s how Edible Gift was born.
Edible Gift was not a simple opportunity for business. It incorporates my passion for food (e.g. chocolate, fresh fruits and vegetables) and my passion for healthy living (e.g. raw ingredients, gluten-free, food allergy). Being mother to a three year old and a 6 year old I know only too well the challenges that motherhood brings. Sugary food and fast-food are so tempting when having a full schedule. Choosing a healthier entree and desert makes me feel good about myself and the education I give to my kids.
Our children are so precious, what we teach them early in life will shape and stay with them for years to come. If they see exercise, healthy cooking and healthy eating as a normal part of everyday life they will grow up with these values and lead a much healthier and fulfilled lifestyle.
Fruit bouquets are not only healthy. They are impressive and stylish. Having an edible arrangement at a wedding or event is considered something modern and expensive. Chocolate dipped strawberries and fruit arrangements are a great conversation starters.
In most parts of the world chocolate is associated with romance, and not without good reason. Chocolate is known to release small amounts of endorphins which elevate our mood.
Chocolate dipped strawberries are a go to item that will knock the socks off of your romantic night. I like adding a slight twist that makes them more elegant and desirable. I drizzle various toppings on them or infuse them with alcohol.
To reach as many women as possible to spread my knowledge on fruit arrangements and healthy food options.
To offer quality product by using local grown fruits and vegetables, natural and preservatives free chocolate.
To use Eco friendly products as much as possible.
To always create something unique and make someone’s day unforgettable.
Love to travel around the world. I have lived in 3 continents so far.
Dislike racism and bad manners.
My philosophy is to share my passion and knowledge with those around me.
