Meet Mary Babiez - CEO of Thoughtful Presence


Thoughtful Presence designs and delivers custom gift baskets for personal and corporate gift giving and special events. High-quality gourmet food and gift products are hand-picked, and a collection is designed around a theme, holiday, life milestone, or special event. Each elegant gift basket is created in a way that will “wow” the recipient. Custom gift baskets are also available per request.

Customer service is top priority at Thoughtful Presence. Clients love that they are able to customize any basket to create the exact type of product they want. One of the most popular categories is the “Chicago” themed gift baskets which includes local sports team baskets. Each basket is not only individually created, but also is tracked and delivered on time with consistent communication with the customer.

“One of the main reasons people love our gift baskets is because they are unique - and since we design them ourselves, you won’t find our products anywhere else. Customers have mentioned that our gift baskets tend to be of high-quality and have more “personality” than our competitors,” said Mary Babiez, President of Thoughtful Presence.

“Since joining the Chamber last fall, I haven’t yet experienced some of the summer events which I am really looking forward to. I really enjoy the monthly luncheons because they are always at great locations and I always see new faces, which really helps to expand my network,” said Mary. “I love that there is always an interesting speaker at each luncheon too!”
