My name is Katy, and I am the girl behind the blog. Helena and Elena was created in late 2011 after I saw the need for a resource of gift ideas. I love exploring websites and stores that are full of pretty things to give family and friends.
Helena and Elena is committed to finding the most exciting products and gift ideas there are, and for a reasonable price. You don't have to spend a ton of money to show people you care. In fact, most of the items posted on Helena and Elena are under $50, and all of them are fun and stylish.
The name Helena and Elena came from . . .
Helen is my grandmother's name. She was the most generous, thoughtful, and giving person I have ever known. Using her name felt appropriate for a site that thinks up ideas for gifts to give others. Elena is my middle name, which is a Slovak variation of her first name.
When I'm not blogging I am . . .
A full-time student that is currently studying to travel the world and share God's love. Working a part-time job at my local grocery store. Writing, singing, drawing, and endlessly dreaming of random things.
"In a nutshell, loving someone is about giving, not receiving."
