Who is Ruby?

Maya Angelou once said, “Your legacy is every life that you have touched.”

Ruby was my grandmother and her spirit lives in everyone that she touched in her life. Because life can be unpredictable, Ruby and I did not connect until she was 90 and I was 19.  I can still feel our first embrace and I created this brand to keep Ruby’s legacy alive in a physical form.

Ruby was so many things: colorful, resilient, confident, composed, courageous, deliberate, humble, and kind.  These are all traits that I have always admired and I live my life striving to live out the characteristics that she exuded.

Ruby is the spirit of every person we consider admirable.  Who do you admire most?  That person you just thought of…that is your Ruby.

At Just Like Ruby, our goal is to provide you with beautiful, high quality gift accessories that tug at your happiness strings.  Our brand was created on the premise that it is better to give than to get.  We offer premium gift boxes, gift bags, wrapping paper, and cards that are hand designed with you in mind.

With a single act of kindness you can be someone’s Ruby today.
