I’m Ami – the owner of The Kiss Co. When our first son was three months old, I left the room for a minute, and when I re-entered he looked so excited to see me I felt overwhelmed with love, and had a moment of intense inspiration. I told him I had brought back some kisses with me, and kissed them all over his little face. He giggled and I giggled and we shared one of those overwhelming little moments. And just like that – The Kiss Co. was born!
I was so touched by the whole experience I wanted to capture and share it, so I put my feelings and ideas down on paper. One year later, with the tremendous help of Becky and Sara, our wonderful illustrators, the little story leapt to life.
My mission for The Kiss Co. is to create the opportunity for a lifetime of memories - special moments of togetherness and love. Some things you only see when you slow down, and I hope that these books and keepsakes provide that precious slow time.
I hope that The Kiss Co make your loved ones feel like you’ve given them a great big hug – or a gentle kiss – even if you are miles away.
We live in Christchurch and now have 3 little people of our own. I have continued the journey and expanded the business to include a suite of products to celebrate the unique joy of the Kiss and the Cuddle.
