In a gift giving rut? We feel you. And while our number one gift suggestion is always going to be a bright bunch of farm-direct flowers from yours truly, The Bouqs Co., our second favorite choice would have to be a personalized gift box.
There are so many new gift box companies popping up these days, so we have pulled together a list of our faves to help you navigate through them. From quality trinkets, artisanal treasures, and tasty munchies, all of these retailers have something wonderful and unique to offer.
Vibe: For new adults. Useful extras you might not buy yourself.
What: Toast tongs, a flamingo bottle opener, a cord organizer are items that may not be 100% necessary, but hey, it doesn’t mean your recipient won’t want them! Pick from a curated selection of boxes or make your own by selecting from their catalogue. Some of their more practical offerings include honey, granola, notepads, and beauty products.
Vibe: Young moms, trendy chocolate lovers, and bloom appreciators.
What: Highly themed boxes ranging from the “Home Sweet Home” to the “Dude Box” to the “Mommy and Me.” A light wood box wrapped in ribbon is filled with their fun selections. Their plush items seem to either come with flowers, Compartes Chocolate or both!
Vibe: A special little something with a personal and artistic touch.
What: Pick the print design and photos that go on the outside of these precious little cubes. Small and sweet, with room inside for only a couple of their trendy little somethings; fill the box with a lip tint and some confetti, or a candle and caramels. You won’t have to break the bank, and your recipient will be touched by the thoughtful details. Use their birthday reminders feature so you never forget again!
Vibe: Pacific Northwest trendy trinkets.
What: Earthy, minimal and very on trend. Each item is ethically sourced so you can feel good about your purchase and what it supports. With an eclectic selection—a keychain here, a healing crystal there, and beauty and food products throughout—you are bound to find the perfect gift.
Vibe: Androgynous, decadent, minimalist.
What: For the artist crowd that is also strapped with cash. These simple and elegant wooden gift boxes don’t mess around. Focusing on quality over quantity, Simone LeBlanc has created a rich, creamy collection of products that are tasteful classics. Weddings, babies, birthdays, housewarmings, or just because, send a thoughtful gift with no thought required!
Vibe: Light and feminine, with an emphasis on bath and babies.
What: Soft pink or ivory boxes filled with bath and beauty products, artisanal sweets, candles, and carefully scribed notes. Most of the boxes lean towards women looking for a little pampering. However, they do offer selections for specifically for newborns, bridesmaids, and housewarmings.
