Simone McDowell started blogging in 2008 as a way to organize all her gift ideas. Not only did she have (and still does) a love of shopping, she found herself constantly giving gift ideas to friends and family. The blog was a great place to house these fun, unique gift ideas for everyone to browse at their convenience. In 2011, the blog organically turned into a business. In addition to the online outlet to browse gift options, HoneeBee Gifts offers the following services:

Personal Gift Shopping: HoneeBee Gifts offers a “hands free” shopping experience for you where we will pick up, wrap and deliver the gift of your choice (through our recommendations) directly to the giftee.  This service is available for individuals, corporations and groups.

Gift Consultations:  HoneeBee Gifts will conduct a 30 minute consultation and  follow up with three gift recommendations for your giftee within 48 hours.

Event Hosting: HoneeBee Gifts is happy to host appropriate events for brands, companies and more, helping to create a fun event for all attendees.

Speaking Engagements: Have HoneeBee Gifts come to your next company meeting and discuss the Art of Gift Giving which includes gift tips, gift trends, gift ideas and more.

HoneeBee Gifts has worked with the Carolina Panthers, Southern Women’s Show and of course individual clients who want the perfect gift!

HoneeBee Gifts is a daily business that offers creative gift concepts and exceptional ideas to celebrate moments that mean the most to you through gifting. Simone McDowell, the person behind the business feels that gifts should be given all year round and has ideas for various holidays, price points and personality.

“She really is Charlotte’s expert on finding the perfect gift. I personally think that’s because Simone is such a thoughtful person and she really listens to what you’re saying. Those traits with her great eye for style are what have made her so successful”
–Olivia Fortson, Charlotte Observer

“It just isn’t the holidays or a special occasion without Simone coming into our studios to do a gifts segment! She’s got this bright energy and conversational style that really resonates with our viewers. With such a variety of gift ideas, there’s always something for every one of our viewers. Forget about boring gift cards, or contrived chocolates and flowers. Her ideas are so creative and unique, I always end each segment thinking “I can’t wait to give…or get one of those!” –Dion Lim, WCNC NewsChannel 36
