A B O U T
Minnie Box several years ago when I was wrapping gifts for close friends who had milestone birthdays, but the project ended up on the back burner with my corporate job demanding my focus. When I left my corporate job in August 2018 to focus on my health, I was inspired to start Minnie Box up again when putting together gifts for two best girlfriends turning 40. I wanted to make them feel loved and special on their birthday, and I organically started to decorate the interior box flaps to add the personal touch. I also started making candles, they are all-natural soy wax and hand-poured by me.
The concept for Minnie Box is to send a personal gift as it's become a lost art in this modern age where people simply click and ship gifts over the internet. The recipient would receive a standard box in the mail, however, upon opening, they would be surprised with the personalized decorated box flaps along with items specifically picked out for them. For those going through something significant in their life, I incorporate items that will be helpful to the recipient. The Melanie and The Heidi Breast Cancer Recovery boxes are great examples as both women went through breast cancer treatment, and provided insight on items that were needed or useful during their recovery period.
Minnie Box is driven by the feeling I get when spreading joy to others, and the biggest response received to date is that these aren't your ordinary gift boxes.
Each box is designed especially for your special someone and the box is named after them.
Boxes can be built for any occasion or life event:
To date, I’ve made boxes for Anniversaries, Baby Gifts, Birthdays, Breast Cancer Support, Care Packages, Condolences, Fertility Support, Graduation, Housewarming, Just Because, New Adventures, New Chapter, Sympathy, Thank You, Thinking of You, and Weddings.
