Like its namesake, Jesse’s Gifts and Décor is the love-child of Kiddist and Jerome Cowans (That’s me – I’m Kiddist –smiles-). Unable to find comfort during a complicated pregnancy with our first-born son, Jesse, I did what Jamaicans everywhere are known for – ‘tun mi han’ and make fashion’. 

Not only did I manage to design and sew my own super-comfy maternity body pillow while on bed rest at home, but the mandated time-off also gave birth to a series of beautiful hand-stitched cushions – which caught the eye of several social media friends and followers. 

With orders coming in rapidly for cushions, I had to quickly co-opt my husband and mother-in-law to help meet the demand. That’s when we recognised that there was a niche for our home-made items; so we began to expand into providing other gift and décor items – made even more enticing through personalisation. 

Now, Jesse’s Gifts and Décor is known for producing a wide range of high-quality personalised gift and décor items – for homes, SMEs, individuals, and corporate partners. Our growth, however, has never changed who we are at our core – we are 100% home-grown in Kingston, Jamaica – and we still put our hearts into everything we do. 

Whether it’s a gift to make someone’s day, an item to brighten a home, or building the brand identity for a business, we aim to be the go-to business for creative, unique, and best quality products, customer-centered solutions, and positively memorable customer service. 

We put our hearts in everything we do – from delivering our signature standard of quality products and services, operating with mindful, sustainable practices, and giving back to build back the community that built us. 


Kiddist McCoy-Cowans is a full-time mother, Jamaica House Fellow, motivational speaker, and serial entrepreneur.
