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.Blog Author
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.Blog Author

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.
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...
