“The girls (or should I say superstars) at Cadeau have been nothing short of incredible. We engaged Cadeau as a supplier to assist with our corporate gifts and we couldn't be happier with the result. As a small business ensuring we have the best service to offer to our clients is of huge importance to us. The gifts from Cadeau are absolutely beautiful, delicately wrapped and delivered with ease. The concept of the boxes feels luxe yet unique. Cadeau offered us custom gift wrapping with our branding, and handwrite every box we send out to clients. I am thrilled to continue a long partnership with Cadeau and the exceptional concept and service they have to offer!”
