About Us

Thoughtfully curated gift boxes that refine the timeless art of the occasion.

At Bonnie + Bud, we believe in the power of a thoughtful gift. That it isn’t about what’s inside the box, but the feeling of joy, surprise, connection, and closeness when it’s opened. That it’s better to give than to receive. That there’s a beauty in making and doing by hand. That it’s worth taking the extra time to do it right. We believe that a gift sent with care can bring people together, no matter the distance that separates them.

Inspired by our grandmother Bonnie and uncle Bud, who brought care, gratitude, generosity, and love to everything they did, we can’t wait to help you create memorable moments with the ones who matter most.

Our Team

Whitney Holofchak, Founder
Whitney founded Bonnie + Bud in December 2013. She loves to explore local farmers markets, antique stores and craft fairs, so finding inspiration for Bonnie + Bud is never far. Whitney is originally from Louisville, Kentucky, but she has called Charlotte home for over 15 years. As she grew up in Kentucky, she was surrounded by a large family. The women in the family instilled in her the values of gratitude and thoughtfulness, which she hopes to capture through Bonnie + Bud. Whitney lives with her husband, two children, and dogs Nellie and Patty.

Rosalyn Cox, Gift Design Lead
Rosalyn began working for Bonnie + Bud in November 2016, after taking some time off from the corporate world to stay home with her two young children. As the head of gift box design, she strives to meticulously create gift boxes with the recipient in mind. Valuing the beauty and quality of the Bonnie + Bud products, as well the presentation of the finished box, Rosalyn is at her happiest when creating in the studio. Rosalyn grew up in Virginia, but Charlotte has been her home for 20 years. She lives with her two energetic sons and Swiss doodle Scout.

Katie Hallaway, Marketing Lead
Katie joined Bonnie + Bud in November 2018, after more than 15 years in corporate communications and public affairs. She is our lead for marketing, communications, social media and sales. She values the creativity and thoughtfulness that goes into every Bonnie + Bud gift, as well as the small batch products we use. Katie is a North Carolina native and proud Tar Heel. She loves calling Charlotte home, along with her husband, two daughters and dogs Mackey and Ruby.
