The Send a Surprise team

Lindsay is the owner of Send a Surprise. Whilst living in the Bahamas for 10 years she earned a Business Administration degree through UNISA and in 2018 finally got an opportunity to turn her love of gifting into a business. One of the hardest things about living overseas away from her family was finding great gifts & flowers online to deliver to friends & family back in South Africa to celebrate special events when you can’t be there in person. Her vision is to blow the customer away with an awesome selection of gifts, wrapped and packaged beautifully with a handwritten note to make the recipient feel extra special. Having every item in stock ready to ship via overnight delivery and the best customer service in the business is what makes Send a Surprise unique.

Lill wraps, packages and ships out every gift as well as heading up the assembly in our corporate gift department. She ties the best “Tiffany Style” bow you have ever seen and loves nothing more than surprising an unsuspecting recipient with a gift from a loved one.

Pam is our resident flower whisperer. She is responsible for the care of every bloom that passes through our office on its way out in a beautiful bouquet. She loves learning about new flowers and floral arranging techniques.

Bryn delivers all the gifts & flowers in Cape Town and is sometimes accompanied by office mascot and co-pilot Pepper who loves going along on deliveries and enjoys long walks in the forest after “work”.

I received the most stunning birthday box from Send a Surprise! Beautifully presented in a luxurious box with tissue paper and a bow, and filled with a gift I use over and over again. The experience from start to finish was fantastic.
