Deena is a daughter of immigrants, a mom of two kids, and an Enneagram 2W3. Between Ames and Oates, 13 years in the corporate world, and over a decade of experience in building her photography brand and business, her passion for giving and for the client experience is the driving force behind who she is and what she does every day.
She believes in celebrating life, and in supporting her people - in any and all forms that it takes.
Over half of American adults receive gifts they dislike and more than $9.5 billion is estimated to be wasted on unwanted gifts each year.
Our mission - ridding the world of boring, transactional, throwaway gifts. We seek the best makers from around the world who take pride in their craft and our in-house design team curates gift collections that are as unique as the people who will receive them.
Because finding reasons to celebrate your loved ones is easy, gifting should be too!
At Ames and Oates, we pay close attention to making sure we are part of the solution, not the problem. That’s why we use sustainably sourced materials for all of our packaging and our keepsake gift boxes are made to last and be reused.
With our Gift Good | Do Good mission, 10% of the proceeds from every gift purchased are donated to GlobalGiving. We donate each month to a different cause spanning from environmental issues and education to women's rights and responsible sourcing.
