The best gift I ever received was from BirdieBox CRO, Chrissy Dunlap. When my mom passed away, Chrissy printed several pictures of my mom and other family members on a canvas and wood picture frame. When my Dad saw the picture, he asked me if he could have it. Chrissy overheard the story and sent another picture frame to me.

My favorite gift continues to be the handwritten cards from my husband every anniversary and birthday. I’ve kept every one since we started dating. He could spend crazy money on something but what stays with me are the heartfelt sentiments and reflections of his words, and the fact he took the time to write something so thoughtful for me.

The best gift I have ever received was from my best friend. She sponsored one of the amazing women in the Black Mambas (a wildlife conservation group) in my name. I have followed the group for years. That she remembered a detail that meant to much to me, was truly touching.

One of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received was 2 years ago when my daughter gave me a 23andMe DNA Testing Box. It was my favorite gift because it was super exciting to find out the results, and share them with the rest of my family. We found out ancestry information that not even my parents knew.

The best gift I’ve ever received - other than my son, of course- has been my various (yes multiple) cat tea mugs from him. The fact that my 8 year old would think to combine my nearly obsessive love for both tea and cats into one perfect item makes me proud of what a thoughtful heart he has, and I enjoy drinking out of those mugs almost every day.

My favorite gift is a Ryne Sandberg Rawlings baseball glove my parents gave me for my birthday as a child. I distinctly remember the overwhelming surprise and gratitude that I felt when I opened that gift. I still have it to this day and it brings back the fond memories and friendships made during my little league baseball days.

The best gift I ever received was my first guitar. I had been learning on a really old one that was falling apart. I wasn't ready to spend my college student's income on a new one, so a friend got me a beautiful used guitar! It was something I would never have done for myself, but meant so much to me in the long run!

For my high school graduation, I was gifted a stunning locket necklace from my mother. It was marked with a 'B' and engraved with a special message on the back: 'Love Always, Mom.' This symbolized not only the day I graduated but also the love I took away with me to college.

One of the most memorable gifts I've ever received was from my best friend when I had just moved from my hometown of St. Louis to Chicago. She sent me a box of my favorite St. Louis items including a frozen Imo's pizza and a Cardinals hat. It made me truly feel close to home even though I was living in a new city.

The best gift I've ever received was tickets to Super Bowl 57 in Phoenix this year with my dad. I grew up a huge sports fan, always watched football with my parents and my major in college was sports management, so going to the Super Bowl was on my bucket list. To attend it with my dad was even more special and unforgettable!

The best gift I’ve received is my monogrammed tool bag. I love the practicality of it. Sometimes the best gifts are things you’d never think to purchase, but once you own it you can’t believe you ever lived without it.

Best gift I ever received was a painting from my mom as a house warming gift. She bought the painting on a girls trip to New Orleans with me and my best friend of 18 years. The artist was in the middle of painting it when it caught our eye! While we waited for it to dry we sat and got to know the artist!

The best gift I have ever received is my Electric Corkscrew. It's really saved me a lot of time and allowed me to get to enjoying my wine much much faster. It’s the small things in life we should find pleasure in! I prefer Red over White but I'm by no means going to turn any down.

The best gift I ever received was my black lab hound, Ducati. I went to the humane society with a friend to find his dog, and unbeknownst to me, I'd also find my best friend that day. He sadly passed in 2019, but I have some of his ashes in a necklace that I wear, so he is still taking adventures with me everywhere I go.

The best gift I ever received was my grandmother's wedding ring. After she passed away, I found out that she had left her ring to me as well as many other pieces of jewelry. In addition to the jewelry, she had left me detailed notes as to what the significance of each piece meant. It was the most thoughtful and meaningful gift I have ever received by far.

Best gift I ever got was a watch from my wife. We had been married for a few years and I was really wanting a “nice” watch. For our anniversary my wife got me a Tag Heuer watch that I was looking at. I don’t wear it often these days, but still have in a safe location.

BirdieBox Story

After a storied career on Wall Street, Keith Bolognese moved to Scottsdale, AZ and founded BirdieBox in late 2013, born from a love of golf and lifestyle. Our first tagline was Golf. Life. Style. In April, 2014, Keith called upon his childhood friend, Pat DePirro to run the company since there was trust, friendship and mutual respect between the two New Yorkers.

In Q4 of 2016, DePirro made the difficult decision to sunset BirdieBox successful monthly golf subscription service to solely focus on corporate gifting, changing the business model, branding and tagline.  Pat drew upon his experience as a corporate sales leader for MLB, Viacom and Bloomberg, regularly entertaining clients at sporting events, golf trips and other marquis events.  Part of creating these memorable experiences, DePirro often provided thoughtful and personalized gifts regardless of the time, energy and coordination required to source, package and customize them for each client.  

Contact Us

ate 2017, DePirro's friend, investor and current Board Member, Michael Myers joined BirdieBox to expand the business verticals and scale the business, focusing on targeting professional sports, colleges and financial service professionals as he saw an immediate need in the marketplace.  Understanding the value, time savings and convenience that a streamlined concierge gifting service would deliver, Myers leveraged his stellar reputation and huge network in sports to build BirdieBox's presence.  Myers was also responsible for bringing on top talent and executive leaders, Chrissy Dunlap and Perla Peralta.

Built on the foundation of being thoughtful, personal and transparent, BirdieBox continues to provide the highest quality products sourced across the globe. We built relationships with over one hundred top-tier consumer brands and made investments in equipment that facilitate and expedite personalization on both products and packaging.

Additionally, BirdieBox invested in their supply chain so they would have the ability to provide all services needed such as product storage, custom website development, onsite staffing and ongoing customer support, always leaving a lasting impression with each client and their most valued customers. And because one size does not fit all, clients can choose from custom-designed gift sets, on-site gift suites or virtual gift portals, all designed to engage and delight gift recipients.

BirdieBox is headquartered and executes their turnkey fulfillment services in Miami, FL.  A second showroom at The Star District in Frisco, Tx will open in the Spring, 2021. While 2020 may have proven to be a challenging year for most companies, BirdieBox is poised to continue their impressive 2x YOY growth for the fourth year in a row.  This is just the beginning...
