Maude Gift & Co. is a family-owned and inspired gifting company. Our inspiration comes from our great grandmother, Maude Wood, who started her own business over 80 years ago.

Maude was happily married with seven children and one on the way when her husband was killed in a tragic mining accident, leaving her to be the sole provider for her eight children during the Great Depression. With hard work, determination, and family support, Maude eventually was able to open a general store, providing goods and gifts to her neighbors in the avenues of Salt Lake City.

The story of Maude Wood is one of family tragedy and triumph, and as Maude's granddaughters we strive to live up to her legacy by being courageous, hard-working, and kind.

Jen Allen has been in the retail industry for over 25 years. Her work for Gap, Pottery Barn, Old Navy, and Touché has given her an education and understanding of the industry. Her ability to create and make things beautiful is unparalleled, along with knowing what is on trend and in style.

Kelly Koch has owned several businesses with her husband giving her knowledge that can only come by experience. She also has an eye for creating beautiful things and an ear to the ground for all the latest trends. She loves curating gifts and creating bundles that are cohesive and functional. 

Sarah Garcia worked in the insurance industry for ten years before diving into gifting. Her understanding of day-to-day operations and administration runs deep. She also loves to create and has found her skills and passion come together in this business. 

We love what we do! Let us do our job so you can do yours. We can take your ideas or end goals with gifting and make them a reality. 

Sincerely, Jen Allen, Kelly Koch, and Sarah Garcia
