What is TRUE for me, as for many around the world, the OLIVE TREE symbolizes strength, peace, hope and determination. It is precisely because of this symbolism that  I couldn’t think of a better gift for my LOVED ones, especially during a challenging year.


When I mentioned to my mom my idea of giving olive trees as GIFTS, she commented on how wonderful it was that I was giving “Sveto Drvo”, a term commonly used in reference to the olive tree in her homeland Croatia. Sveto Drvo translated into English is Sacred Tree. I started giving my Sacred Trees to FRIENDS and FAMILY and each gift was UNIQUE and personalized with a special message, inspirational quote or biblical passage.  It was by far the best gift I had ever given. 


The response I received was truly HEARTWARMING as I heard time and time again how much the gifts meant to them.  Seeing their faces, listening to their voices, and feeling their emotion was priceless.  I knew without a doubt what my next chapter would look like, and SACRED TREE was born.
