Convention presents, welcome bags, speaker gifts: Sibley's West has them all!

When it comes to finding unique Arizona gifts for your family, friends or customers, Sibley's West can help!

Over the last nine years, Sibley's has helped countless organizations "Share-izona" with memorable items, functional gifts, snacks and sundries.

These include welcome bags with items like lip balm and sunscreen for visiting family members and friends for a wedding or special event; some chips and salsa or crackers and prickly pear jelly for a post-event snack in the hotel room; a piece of pottery to remind guests of Arizona; or a commemorative plaque, like the ones given to the special guests of the Chandler International Film Festival.

Sibley's West can meet your needs, whether it's a half-dozen gift trays or, at one extreme, 475 made-in-Arizona salsa bowls.

We offer bulk pricing, delivery items and special touches, like artist cards and personal service.

Welcome bags

If you're having an event in Arizona, you want to show off the state and express gratitude to the individuals who made the trip.

An easy solution is an Arizona welcome bag. At Sibley's we can help you determine a suitable gift for any price range and activity.

Some common suggestions -- reflected in the photo above -- are small gift bags with perhaps prickly pear jelly and crackers (for an arrival snack), or some prickly pear candy and popcorn, or perhaps a small jar of Cactus salsa and chips.

If you are having an event outdoors, you may want to include some lip balm or sunscreen products.


One organization worked with Sibley's West to give Arizona chips and salsas to their supporters.

Corporate gifts

Whether it is as a convention gift or as a seasonal thank-you, an Arizona gift can be memorable and reinforce the ties between a company, its employees and its customers and partners.

Sibley's West can help in many ways.

We can work with you to customize gift baskets or trays with appropriate items for specific recipients.

We can coordinate bulk purchases and delivery for conventions, meetings and special events.

We can brainstorm gift items in various price ranges and volumes that will make an impression.

We can explore ways to personalize items with your corporate logo or name-drop the location and year.

You can find many of the common requests on our Arizona Baskets and Corporate Gifts page of our website.

But you can also call us at 480-899-4480 to discuss potential options.

One of our most unusual requests was from an event planner in Georgia who wanted something functional for 475 guests at a convention in South Carolina for under $10.

Sibley's West was able to work with Del Terra Pottery of Tucson to provide 475 colorful salsa bowls (in a box for the trip home) -- and we even delivered to Charleston, S.C.!


Speaker gifts

If you are looking for a memorable, unique, thoughtful gift for a special event, our Arizona artists can help!

Sibley's has a great choice of items in all price ranges for any occasion.

Most recently, in January, the Chandler International Film Festival reached out to Sibley's West for five gifts for filmmaking honorees at their 4th annual event.

The organizers decided on round mesquite plaques, carefully engraved with the festival logo on the front and the performer's name on the back. (See above.)

Recipients, including actor Robert Davi, were thrilled with the one-of-a-kind memento.

Robert Davi (in hat), whose credits include "The Goonies," "Die Hard" and "License to Kill," was a guest of honor at the recent Chandler International Film Festival.

We have also had success with items made of clay, glass and metal.

The bread trays made by Gary Houston of Payson have been popular, especially since they were featured in Phoenix Magazine's Gift Guide.

The fun element, because the artists are just a phone call away, is Sibley's West's ability to reach out and discuss concepts and then get back to the event organizer promptly.

Just give us a call or send an email and we can help!
