About us

our story

Welcome to Century Classics! We are a full-service custom gift design business specializing in corporate gifts, events, client appreciation, and any of life’s special occasions. Owner and founder Susan Petersen recognized the need for custom gifts and what began as a real estate/new home gift basket business expanded into corporate event, and client appreciation gift design. We believe gifts tell a story that connects people, makes memories and transforms relationships. Along with my amazing team, Tracy, Olga, and Lourdes, we have a  passion for the highest quality products that have garnered us loyal, longtime customers and our love of details set us apart with our unique containers, specialty gift items, delicious gourmet foods, and our signature bows. It is an intentional approach that creates a personal inspired gift and we want you to love it as much as we do!

Meet Susan

With an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire for creating a specialty gifting business, Susan started Century Classics with the idea that “we are in business to make you look good!” There was a need in the gifting world for gifts that elevated the client experience along with the the convenience of an entrusted partner from beginning to end. Susan draws energy from her Houston, Texas roots and lives close by with her husband and her beloved 100 lb Golden/Shepherd Mix pup, Ginger. When not designing gifts she enjoys spending time with family,  trying out new recipes, going to concerts, and relaxing on the beach.


what our clients are saying

I have worked with Century Classics for over 13 years!  Their team has provided excellent service,  meeting and exceeding all my needs and expectations. They are able to provide that extra level of service that is vital in your gifting and promotional needs.  They are so extremely creative that I am able to provide their team a theme and price point and they run with it!  I have  provided items to them and looked to them to provide the immaculate packaging and delivery of items to launch a campaign or even celebrate employee milestones.  I have received industry awards due to their packaging and presentation of items that have accompanied a business to consumer and a business to business outreach for campaign launches and integration. I will continue to work with them for the next 13 years and beyond!

I have a long-term association with Century Classics and wanted to share my experience. Century has consistently delivered on time a creative, high quality, product.  Not just another gift basket company, they go above and beyond to deliver a unique product perfect for any occasion.  They customize to fit our specific needs and find no request too challenging.  Customer focused, they are willing to go the extra mile, and quick to offer suggestions. Obviously, they take pride in what they do and the end result is a fun, impressive, gift. They make our job easier and we are always proud to deliver a Century Classics basket.

I just wanted to thank you for being such a good “gift” source for me and let you know what a great staff you have. Tracy, Olga, and Lourdes do an excellent job, make beautiful gift boxes and always greet me with a smile.  I can always count on your company to provide excellent quality and always get  the job done on time!

“Century Classics goes over and beyond creativity and uniqueness, whenever I order baskets for clients.  From putting our logos on ribbon or finding baskets that are so classy and clever, it’s obvious they have has a definite personal touch that you don’t find with a corporate basket company.  I love that I can personalize my basket each time I order and not have the standard basket that everyone receives for gifts.  I won’t even think of using anyone else when it comes to ordering gifts for clients. “

Hope Allday
