The Perfect Gift Awards 2022 Page 11 LUXlife The Perfect Gift Awards 2022 Catori Collection is an online crystal, metaphysical and holistic store offering a range of ethically sourced crystals, smudge and cleansing supplies, singing bowls, tarot, divination and wiccan items, homeware and sundries, and digital gift cards. Catori Collection Crystal Shop of the Year - South East England Jul22100 ‘Catori’ is a Native American name meaning ‘spirit’. Candice Gaugain chose this name for her business with the intention of providing her customers with a variety of items so they can create their own personal and sacred ‘spiritual collection’. Candice is driven by her passion and love for crystals and being on one’s own spiritual journey. Her vision for Catori Collection has always been to bring alternative healing to people around the world. And she delights in helping her customers to choose the perfect gift for their friends and loved ones, saying, “To me, what makes the perfect gift are items that are unique, cost-effective, packaged well, and sent with love and good vibrations. “I often get tremendous amounts of positive feedback from customers saying that they could feel the good energy upon opening their packages or how receiving them made such an uplifting impact on their day.” Not only are her products gorgeous, but as a metaphysician and psychotherapist, Candice offers specialist private consultations where individuals can benefit from her expert knowledge in crystal healing, chakras, spirituality, meditation, and the connection between mind, body, and spirit. Candice aims to treat each client as an individual and to meet them where they are along their healing path. After all, the business’ tagline is “The Journey is Yours”. Over the years, Candice has worked to create a space via her website, social media, and at public events where she can connect with her customers, which has become an essential component in allowing the business to grow to what it is today. She says, “I never want to be a faceless business where customers do not know the person(s) behind the brand.” Candice seeks to continue educating the public on alternative methods to personal wellbeing by offering guidance in a sector where people from all walks of life are wanting, needing, and looking to enhance their personal development through holistic health. One way she has recently done this is through writing an article entitled “Crystals, Powerful Gifts from Nature” in the spring 2022 edition of magazine. Ultimately, it’s easy to see how Catori Collection has come to achieve such success within The Perfect Gift Awards 2022, with such wonderful products and service. Candice is no stranger to receiving accolades either, having won two awards with the Centre of Excellence: ‘Best Business 2020’ and ‘Entrepreneur Award’ in 2021. Also notable is the business continuously being a Star Seller each month on Etsy for the past year, alongside having thousands of five-star reviews on the Etsy platform. So, what’s next for Candice and Catori Collection? She shares, “In the future, I am looking to have physical locations across the UK (and perhaps beyond!) where customers can do instore shopping.” Watch this space!
