My name is Anja van Staveren owner and founder of Favors Galore. I currently live and manage my business in George, Western Cape.
So how did all these products that you see before you come to be?
Well, it all started when I was looking for a small inexpensive, high-quality gift for a function I had to attend. I realized that all the little gifts that I could afford were not exactly something anyone would really use, and that was how Favors Galore was born. I started the business in March 2017 and have gone from strength to strength making gifts for weddings, radio events and for everyday use.
Yes, our products are affordable and high in quality, ideal for you?
Who is this “you” that I keep referring to; it is you the event planner wondering what can you recommend as a guest favor, you the everyday woman that just want a little bit of me time and pampering, you the busy mom who struggles to get the kids to bath or wash their hands and finally you the person who is looking for a gift for a friend or family member that is unique but won’t break the bank.
All the products at Favors Galore are handmade and produced to order.
So What's Our Goal?
The goal for Favors Galore is not only to grow and be the answer to the above mentioned questions, but I would like to empower other women from impoverished communities by teaching them how to make the products and in so doing create employment and opportunities for them. The true goal here is to teach young women how to produce the products and sell the items that they have created, giving them a percentage of the profit made from the purchase.
