International Women's Day: Spotlight

International Women's Day is Thursday, so we'd like to take a moment and highlight some of the women-owned businesses we love here at the shop. 

Sunleaf Naturals

SunLeaf founder Teresa Andrys, SunLeaf ingredients and products

Sunleaf Naturals of Waconia, MN is just one of the over 20 Women Owned product lines featured at Hummingbird Floral and Gifts.   Founded and owned by Teresa Andrys, Sunleaf Naturals is committed to 100% natural plant based ingredients.  Her essential oils are 100% with no synthetics and she uses non-GMO and certified organic botanicals when available.

We began carrying the products in 20017 and are proud to carry several Sunleaf Naturals lines.  We carry Single Note Essential Oils and Essential Oil Blends for DIY bath products and personal aromatherapy.  We also feature reed diffusers and electronic oil diffusers for home fragrance.

As a Minnesota based company and employer, Sunleaf donates 5% to protecting fresh water resources in our area. 



Michele Mangiacotti started her body care line in Massachusetts in 2006 and was picked up by Hummingbird Floral and Gifts in 2017.  Mangiacotti's line of plant based essential oil infused fragrances combine feel-good ingredients with elegant, enviornmentally conscious packaging.

Hummingbird Floral and Gift proudly carries several Mangiacotti lines.  We feature hand creams, hand sanitizers, lip therapy for the body and candles and cleaning spray for the home.  

Mangiacotti is more than just pretty fragrances!  The company was recently featured on "Good Morning America" on February 22 because of their "See the Good Project".  "See The Good Project" provides employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities in packaging the company's products. 

Michel Design Works


In 1980, Deborah Michel made her first product: "Our Country Diary". A journal to record observations, the quality paper and beautiful graphics catapulted Michel Design Works into the powerhouse it is today.

Hummingbird Floral and Gifts has been carrying Michel Design Works from the beginning.  The exceptional designs and packaging makes Michel Designs gift worthy for every occasion and decor.  Her home furnishings line include pillows, melamine serving pieces, candles, reed diffusers, kitchen textiles and paper hostess napkins.  We also carry her lines of scented personal care items like lotions, soaps, body lotions and creams that coordinate with her home items.

Anne Koplik Designs

Anne Koplik Designs began in the early 1980s when Anne was a young woman in New York City.  Inspired by her mother, a NYC milliner in the 1920s, Anne had an eye for classic, vintage designs and quickly sold out at her sister's Cedarhurst, NY boutique. 

Now in business with her daughters Jill and Kara, Anne Koplik still designs and creates jewelry by American artisans and uses Swarvoski crystals in her creations. Anne's designs are glamorous enough to be featured on "Dancing with the Stars" and wearable enough for daily wear sparkle.

AKD Gives is Anne Koplik Design's charitable foundation that supports many worthy causes in the New York area. Hummingbird Floral and Gifts was thrilled to add Anne Koplik's line of jewelry in 2015.


Lugene Olson started this floral business in 2010, and we have been very blessed to have been welcomed by the community.  We love being your local florist!

This is just a small taste of the women-owned businesses we carry at our store.  Come by to check out these products and more!

All guests this Thursday can pick up a complimentary rose in celebration of women-led business.

-Your flower-loving friends at Hummingbird Floral and Gift.
