About

Hi! My name is Alyssa!  

I’m a spunky, animal loving, foodie and wine enthusiast with a passion for all things beautiful and eclectic. When I founded Eighteen Feathers in 2015, I took spreading good vibes from a hobby to a career. One of the most gratifying feelings is the freedom to be creative and create feelings of warmth and love in others with my unique gift boxes. There is nothing I enjoy more than helping people give the perfect gift to someone special. And I greatly look forward to working with you and doing just that! 

 

WHY EIGHTEEN FEATHERS?

Allow your Passion to become your Purpose,
and it will one day become your PROFESSION.
— Gabrielle Bernstein

The most important and influential person in my life was my grandmother. She was the warmest and funniest person I have ever known. Her laugh was contagious and she never took herself too seriously. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother always had a strange obsession with the number Eighteen, her “lucky number”. She told me it brought her luck and Eighteen meant life. She believed this to be true from getting married on the eighteenth to betting red eighteen on the roulette wheel. Before she passed away she sat me down and aside from telling me I’m her favorite (shhh don’t tell the others), she promised she would always be my guardian angel and watch over me. I know the feathers from her angel wings are spread wide and guiding me in all I do. So, I saw it fit to use the name Eighteen Feathers, meaning “life of an angel”.

HAPPY GIFTING!
