Our Story

Welcome to BananaBug Designs! We are husband and wife team Andrew and Ashley Daymon, and we love helping your gifting dreams become a reality.  
Hi, y'all, Ashley here! I  am a mom, a teacher and a crafter at heart. I have always had a passion for creating, and friends would often come to me when they needed the perfect personal gift for a special occasion or loved one. Before long, they were sending their friends to me, who then referred their friends.

I started by helping with custom cups, decals and simple personalized gifts, but over time, it became clear that my hobby was a legitimate business.

In 2014, BananaBug Designs was born, and I am still doing what I’ve always done: helping people find, design and create the perfect gift! After juggling both teaching and creating for 5 years, in 2019 I made the leap from the classroom to focus on BananaBug full time.  In early 2021, Andrew left his career in the corporate world and joined BananaBug full time. We are truly a family business, even down to our name! BananaBug Designs is named for our two daughters, Savannah (Banana) and Charlie (Bug). 
BananaBug Designs is located in Ellenton, Florida, but we are proud to serve the Parrish, Palmetto, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota areas. We also ship items worldwide. If you are looking for the perfect monogrammed gift or need something to reflect your personal style, you have come to the right place. We love helping people with the following:
