About Us

Hey y'all! Russell Shostak here, owner of Get Gifty With It. Thanks for checking out my site! I know you're going to love what we've put together for you!

Get Gifty With It is an exciting new gift shop concept, or as I like to say,  "Unique Gifts for Impossible People". Gifts tailored so creatively to people's obsessions that it's almost instinctual. Like, how did we know? We have years of experience in building up brands, creating relationships and fostering artists unique skill sets which gives us a competitive edge in the market.

Combining my original artwork, my favorite artists incredible product lines, and unique collaborations with those artists that you won't find anywhere else, Get Gifty With It's aims to help you Level Up Your Gift Game! We love slogans if you can't tell.

My career before starting GGWI was in retail, then sales, then sales management, then Regional Management, then East Coast Sales Director, then Director of Sales (you get the idea). Basically, I've got a ton of experience building and executing brands, and I was fortunate enough to learn so many valuable skills from the very best along the way! I absorbed every ounce of experience and information I could get my eyeballs in front of, and observed masters at their crafts in top form. It was a crash-course in building a business, and still today I am just as eager to learn and perfect things more and more every day!

In 2019, I decided it was time to take my shot. With my 5 year old son in tow, I was either about to make the dumbest move in history a single dad could make by leaving my secure office job, OR, it was all going to work out great and I was worrying for nothing. I'm..uh...still working that one out, check back with me next year on it.

In all seriousness, without the connections I've made, the unbelievably valuable lessons I've learned, and the designers and artists who trust me with their brands (which is like their baby, so no pressure at all), we wouldn't be here to help you step up your gift game! People will often ask me at the shop "Do you make these?" and I always respond, "We work with our friends to create all this cool stuff" because while we may be great at sales, packaging, branding, and design, we know that the magic combination is in PARTNERSHIP; teamwork makes the dream work. Can you tell I used to lead sales teams?

Thanks so much for your support!
