S2/ E23: Steph Douglas, Creator of online shopping sensation, Don’t Buy Her Flowers

May 24, 2023

Ashley welcomes Steph Douglas onto this weeks Bizzimumzi podcast.

Steph has a background in Brand Marketing, she started Don’t Buy Her Flowers in 2014, after receiving eight beautiful, well-meant bouquets when I had my first baby and realising that flowers are a terrible gift when what you need is TLC and reassurance.

Don’t Buy Her Flowers now creates thoughtful gift boxes for any occasion, from new mums and birthdays to get well and bereavement. Steph created a platform where customers can put together bespoke gifts, selecting products they know the recipient will love, which are then gift wrapped and include their message handwritten.

In this episode Ash & Steph chat about:

  • Reflecting back to becoming a first time Mom
  • Finding identity after baby #2
  • Finding your village and leaning on them for support
  • Building Don’t Buy Her Flowers
  • Expanding the business and sharing with her kids
  • Words of wisdom to an expecting Bizzimumzi
