About Us

aSpecialGift.com is owned and operated by Bob and Clare Heinz. They began in the personalized gift business in 1990 with a Monograms Plus franchise in a regional mall in Manchester, CT. After running a successful "While you Shop" personalized gift business for 8 years they took the business on-line in 1998, creating aSpecialGift.com. After relocating to North Carolina in 2003, aSpecialGift.com moved to it's current location in Leland, NC. Over the years, aSpecialGift.com has expanded it's personalized gift options to include monogrammed, engraved, laser engraved, glass etched and full color printed merchandise. Bob and Clare have always maintained that "while you shop" concept to insure quick shipping of your personalized gift order. Most often orders ship within 24 hours, which of course excludes weekends and holidays. Christmas shopping season can be hectic, so orders may take a little longer during this time.
