Short Story:  From our hometown in Greenwood, Mississippi, Cindy Tyler and her designers travel the towns and back roads of Mississippi to hand curate the best Mississippi made food, gifts and home decor for you to share with your clients, friends and family.




Long Story:  Founded over 30 years ago, The Mississippi Gift Company is the first and remains the only company dedicated exclusively to products made in Mississippi. With the largest collection of Mississippi made food and gift items anywhere, The Mississippi Gift Company now offers over 750 made in Mississippi items handcrafted by more than 150 Mississippi gourmet food companies, entrepreneurs & artists.




The Mississippi Gift Company is a website, mail order catalog, retail location and tourist destination dedicated to celebrating Mississippi. These unique and handcrafted Mississippi specialties ship direct to your door from our fulfillment/retail center located in downtown Greenwood, Mississippi, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta.



When Tim and Cindy Tyler married and started The Mississippi Gift Company in 1993 little did they know that their small retail store located deep in the Mississippi Delta would grow to be such the successful internet/mail order company that it is today with customers in every state. Upon the success of the retail shop, in 1995, the newlyweds borrowed their brother-in-law's camera to shoot their first mail order catalog with only 20 Mississippi products and 10 gift baskets. The response from Mississippians and displaced Mississippians wanting to share Mississippi with their clients, friends, and family was overwhelming and led to their first website in 1997.



As the company grew, friends, family, and customers would recommend artists and unique Mississippi items to consider for their ever-growing offering.  The couple would search back roads all over the state to find and feature these unique artists, gourmet food makers and entrepreneurs in their catalog/website.



Working together with local artisans to market their goods, The Mississippi Gift Company became known as Mississippi's go-to place for everything Mississippi, and a top attraction for thousands that visit the Mississippi Delta each year.​


Due to the uniqueness of this one-of-a-kind business, The Mississippi Gift Company has become a tourist destination and a top Mississippi attraction.   Visitors are amazed at the hundreds of quality products made in Mississippi, all available on the website, as well as the retail location.  When planning a trip to The Mississippi Gift Company in Greenwood, tourists typically stay at the luxurious Alluvian Hotel, experience the Alluvian spa, book a cooking class at Viking Cooking School, dine at many of  the local restaurants and spend the day shopping downtown.  


Today The Mississippi Gift Company continues to find unique items, warehouses them in Greenwood, offers them to you on their website/catalog and ships the Best of Mississippi direct to your door.​​

Cindy Tyler, owner says, “The Mississippi Gift Company is based in Greenwood, MS, Population: 15,000. Our small town is in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, home to Viking Range, the Alluvian Hotel, unbelievable restaurants, and Mississippi Delta Blues. What else makes Greenwood special are the fabulous and fun Delta people with a love of family, entertaining, good food and warm southern hospitality.”


At a time when many growing companies are outsourcing, The Mississippi Gift Company is expanding right here in Greenwood, Mississippi.  Everyone benefits by supporting local artisans because it keeps jobs and tax dollars here and fuels the local economy.   From their fulfillment center in Greenwood, The Mississippi Gift Company ships these Made in Mississippi treasures nationwide to your clients, friends, and family​.


 The Mississippi Gift Company has proven that people love to give and receive gifts that are a reflection of who they are and their local heritage.  ​The Mississippi Gift Company allows customers from around the world to share Mississippi and to discover the hidden treasures and artistry of ​Mississippi ; unique items that can be found nowhere else.


Share Mississippi with clients, friends, and family.

My twin sister and I were born in Greenwood many years ago.
My family moved to Natchez, Ms. when we were babies and then to Texas when we were 9 years old!
However, my heart is filled with Mississippi memories and visits to our dear family who live there. Lucy

I just “discovered” The Mississippi Gift Company on an internet search for gift items related to MS. I found a sweet, unique little birthday gift for my sister, and am also waiting hopefully for an out-of-stock item to be re-stocked so I can buy it for a friend. I love the variety of your gift items and also the wide price range, from the smallest inexpensive “happy” for a friend, to a truly elegant splurge-gift for your mother (and everything in between)!
I was born & bred a MS girl, an MSCW (now MUW)
grad, but my first job, and then marriage, drew me away. Now 50 years later, I live in the beautiful mountain-backwoods of TN’s Great Smoky Mountains.
But at heart I’ll always be a Mississippi Girl. Thanks for offering lovely giftwares that take my heart back home.
