More about us
Butterfly things is a VIP gifting business that offers life roses (real roses that last a year) as well as wooden, laser-cut gifts, such as breadboards, personalised wooden signs, cake toppers and so much more. These two ladies met by chance but quickly realised that there was a gap in the market when the types of corporate gifts that they were looking for, were lacking.
Both women love giving and receiving roses and so this business was a natural fit for them. Imagine giving a loved one a flower display that lasted a year. This is literally the gift that keeps on giving. We can do monthly corporate arrangements, Valentines drops for schools or shopping center drops for businesses too.
Aurellia remembers when she was a teenager, she met a lovely young man who was head-over-heels in love with her, he gave her a bouquet of roses that lasted over a week. Her mom told her that the roses were lasting so long because the young man gave them to her with so much love in his heart and this story has stuck with her all these years. She wanted to start a business where people could express their love for one another through roses that last a year or longer.
Roses evoke emotions and that's probably why each colour has a different symbolisation. At butterfly things our roses come in x colours and are available for order in x displays (suede boxefrom s etc). Deliver takes just x days and our ranges start as little as R20.
We can also offer you just about anything made from wood, using a laser cutter. Think outside the box, we would love to bring your vision to life! No idea is too big for us, all you need is imagination and we will metamorphosize your idea into a product. We specialise in corporate gifting and would love to give you a quote today.
