Welcome to Knead & Nod! In the summer of 2018 we came up with an idea to create meaningful and remarkable thank you gifts. We believe that there is power in gratitude and we want to help others show their appreciation in a memorable and sincere way.
Our gifts are arranged by hand and include locally sourced products from Oklahoma artisians and small shops from around the U.S. The Oklahoma community is important to us and we are proud to support small local shops and creative thinkers.
At Knead & Nod, our mission is to take the burden out of gift giving and turn the process into an easy but unforgettable event. We are certain our gifts make each recipient smile and serve as a reminder that they are appreciated, loved and always deserve the best.

Hi! I'm Merrilee. Wife, Momma and Founder of Knead & Nod. I'm a creative thinker with a B.A. in Interior Design and a love for visual ascetics and presentation. I started this company in 2018 to utilize my creative training and focus on my belief that sincere gratitude should be expressed. As a native Oklahoman, I was raised to be grateful for all things, big and small. At a young age, I was taught to write thank you notes and I eventually perfected my skill into the days of my wedding and birth of my children. With our lives consumed with social media, text messages or behind the computer screen, we often tend to become disconnected from those who matter the most. Knead & Nod was created to reinvent how we connect and cultivate relationships, while also relying on the simple, yet tried and true, handwritten note. I designed this gift giving process to be easy but heartfelt. All the things we need in todays world.
When I'm not arranging boxes, you'll likely find me chasing my busy boys, watching Bravo TV or enjoying a long bath. I’m excited for each new order that comes through our store and the stories behind the gifts. Hopefully the next one is yours!
