MUCH MORE THAN A CARD
Tired of exchanging canned cards and gifts? So are we.
At OctoGifts, we build human connection by transforming a universal tradition from a task into a fun experience for everyone.
Surprise and delight the people you care about with a handmade card that's like nothing they've ever seen.
Get it fully assembled or as a family-friendly DIY kit. No matter who builds it, it's an engaging hands-on activity that creates memories.
Customize it, add their favorite candy, and you've got a whimsical gift they'll enjoy for years. Our cards land on desks and nightstands everywhere. They've even gone to college!
You'll be thought of with a smile every time someone asks, "What is that and where did you get it?"

A Great Gift for All Ages

They had a lot of fun assembling and filling the dispensers with jellybeans, and they were amazed that the paper dispensers worked so perfectly." - Karen C.

I received an Octogift for my college graduation and was pleasantly surprised! It was such a cute and thoughtful gift and the design was outstanding. I will definitely display this gift long after the candy is gone.

I bought three of the kits to make the candy dispensers...The directions were very complete. I was impressed with the mechanics of the candy dispenser and would highly recommend this to others! My son, who is going to school for mechanical engineering, thought it was pretty cool.
Autumn M., Lake Havasu City, AZ
This was a great project! My girls loved building these gumball machines themselves and needed very little help from my husband or I.

I was searching for ways to make a virtual college graduation special for my daughter. I ordered one in her school color and filled it with gumballs from Target. We were able to quickly assemble the gift and it made my heart smile to see the process followed for creating these treasures -- so clever. Loved the gift and loved supporting this kind of creativity.

So clever and my 3 big kids (ages 12, 12 & 15) all loved their candy filled cards and thought the dispensing mechanism was super cool! Thanks for making Valentine's Day fun and easy for me this year!

It’s an actual working candy dispenser! Much more unique and lasting than a card that gets thrown in the trash.
