WHO WE ARE

Our Story

Monji Gifts was started by the founders to address the need for an online option to buy gifts that are created by local small businesses.  This concept was born as a result of their interest in entrepreneurship and their desire to work with other small business owners to create a community around gift boxes.  Their goal is to bring boutique quality, locally made products together to deliver delight to the recipient, create a supportive marketplace for local small businesses, and contribute to social good by making a contribution to brain research for each box purchased.  

Although there are many small businesses in the area, finding their products and building a gift box of all local items proves to be very difficult.  The founders found that it was easy to find a single or few local products in shops or markets but finding a variety of all local products takes time and research.

As the coronavirus surged, online buying grew, and the buy local movement took wind; they determined that the time is now to get going.  Thus, Monji Gifts was launched.

While they strive to do well, they strongly also believe in helping others.  For each box purchased, Monji Gifts will make a donation to help advance mental health and wellness research in support of all the individuals and families impacted by brain injuries, depression, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other brain related illnesses.

 The Meaning of “Monji

Monji is a word in the Kabalarian Philosophy.  The Kalabarian Philosophy teaches constructive living based on an understanding of the physical, mental, and spiritual laws of life.  The principals provide the key to understanding how to control life to bring into reality the happiness, mental freedom, and personal success that everyone seeks.  This philosophy teaches that life should reflect constructive growth and evolution based in the refinement of life and the improvement of humanity’s intelligence to reflect greater harmony, purpose, and the attainment of universal ideals.

Per the Kabalarian Philosophy the name of Monji creates a quick, clever mind readily capable of grasping and assimilating new ideas.  Individuals with this trait tend to be studious, analyzing each new idea before accepting it.
