About Us

Two friends came together with a plan to buy and expand a small and intimate online bridal boutique situated in the heart of South Africa, Knysna. Amanda & Ilze enjoys the best of both worlds, and wanted to take on something brand new.

All about personal connections...

With her catching laugh, Ilze is the face of Beyond Bridal Boutique with her years of marketing and client relations experience. She truly is a joy to work with and you can always count on her friendly face and voice to deliver exceptional customer service. 

Business with a sense of humour...

Amanda, the accountant and business brain ensures the smooth running of all the boring stuff behind the scenes with a sense of humour and ease, she makes it seem so simple. She is also very hands on in every aspect of buying and planning in the business. Not scared of taking the risk, she brings the adventure to the team.

A search for unique and intimate...

Both have first hand experience in the sometimes difficult task of searching for unique and personal gifts for people of all walks of life and different backgrounds, whether it be family, friends, colleagues or acquaintances. They use their experience and passion for beautiful things when selecting products.

Therefor Beyond Gifts has emerged from where it began with Beyond Bridal Boutique. A gifting shop that caters for all with quality, durable and thoughtful gifts.

We are in love with what we do and we are excited for a future filled with growth, opportunity and exploring the world outside our comfort zones, our focus now on all beautiful people, worthy of something unique and special.
