Chris Burch Remains Committed to Creativity

Chris Burch has made a lot of money as an entrepreneur in the past 40 years. He stays grounded to his roots by giving back to his community with both time and money. He is an avid gift-giver who uses gifts to impart his creativity and make a difference in others’ lives. He recently wrote about some of his favorite gifts that he has imparted to family and friends. These gift ideas stem from his travels, the companies he has invested in, and gifts meant to inspire the recipients.

The list of gifts include chocolate and candies from candy makers like Pretzables and Fatty Sundays, two companies that he has helped build successful businesses, check For something a little more intimate, Burch points out the Barbour Gisburne jacket from Orvis and the U.S. Jaclean Zero-Gravity Massage chair. For a more formal gift, he recommends a Snow Home Candle Set or a Trademark Cooper Cage Tote. All of these gifts are thoughtful, useful, or just plain fun. For a gift that will make lasting impressions and is close to Burch’s heart, he recommends making a donation to a non-profit in the name of the recipient.  More views from him on
