Our Story


"Boompsdinks" - "The great shopping place with the crazy name".. Started out as an online gift shop. The idea was to bring great gift idea products made by companies with top shelf reputations in their niche, to the general public, all on one website.


Overtime, the number of vendors looking for advertising space on "Boompsdinks" increased dramatically, causing a single website to be too large and overly cluttered and complicated.


So with the intention of making the website more "user friendly" and more fair to our vendors, we decided to breakdown the one large complicated website, into a number of websites, that specialized in various marketing niches.  


As well the "Boompsdinks" name became part of "TeamRevolution2014". So now what we have is, the "Boompsdinks Family Of Online Stores". All grouped under the "Boompsdinks Marketing Group"


Although "Boompsdinks" has diversified into various different marketing niches, the original "Boompsdinks Gift Ideas", does still exist, although in a more narrowly focused marketing niche. 


But make no mistake, "Boompsdinks Marketing", still strives to bring its customers the best products available, made by the best manufacturers, with with the great reputations, for making only the highest quality products.


So here we are, still trying to bring the best products, with the highest quality, at great prices, to our loyal customers. Thanks for staying with us.  :)).
