OUR PURPOSE

To build a community that celebrates human moments.

Our Namesake

The Sunroot is a tall flower in the Sunflower family that acts as a supportive trellis for neighboring plants.

We make every effort to be like a Sunroot, and lift up the humans around us.

Our Values

COMMUNITY

We know we're better together, and we’d rather be companions than competitors. Our small business goes the extra mile to collaborate with other small businesses, empower independent makers and lift up underrepresented entrepreneurs.

We source exclusively from this community, and work to make it easy for you to give gifts that align with your values.

HUMAN CONNECTION

We care about building relationships on a human level. Operating with a people-first mentality, we connect with our customers and suppliers, and let this connection inspire our design and strategy.

With this connection as our foundation, we're able to design gifts that tell a story, and encourage deep connection between our gift givers and recipients.

CELEBRATION

We believe in celebrating human moments – big and little. From an employee's first year anniversary to their retirement, we believe that these moments matter, and that like roots they ground us and unite us.

We make an effort to slow down and celebrate each other, and we have fun when we do!

Our Story

I'm Maryn, founder of Sunroot. Our story begins with my two sisters -- they're the best thing about me. While I live on the East Coast, my twin is chasing her dream on the West Coast and my younger sister is doing the same in the Midwest.

When our paths first spread us across the country, I missed being there to celebrate their big moments and major wins, like their birthday or their move to a new city. As time went on, I began to miss being there for all the moments in between. I began searching for a way to celebrate their everyday human moments -- the moment when they crushed the presentation they were nervous about, or made it to Friday after an incredibly long week.

Over the past several years, I have sent them homemade care packages because I haven’t found anything that could encapsulate the fun-loving celebration I want to send their way. After three years in the eCommerce industry, I decided to start a company that makes just that: a way to celebrate our people -- for their once-in-a-lifetime moments, and all the human moments in between.

Sunroot was born out of a need to celebrate my people, and also a desire to celebrate independent makers and female-owned businesses. Each Sunroot purchase celebrates makers and entrepreneurs that are hustling between night shifts, corporate meetings and children's soccer games. We invite you to read more about our their stories here.

Our makers' incredible stories have combined with ours, and we've come together to create a new story -- one that I hope you will join us in.

While I live on the East Coast, my twin is chasing her dream on the West Coast and my younger sister is doing the same in the Midwest. When something happened in our lives, we needed a way to connect beyond the digital – we wanted to show up for each other in a real and human way.
