I started 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 puttng 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.
The concept for Minnie Box is to send a very personal gift instead of a gift shipped to you with a generic card with a gift receipt. 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.
Right now it’s just me, Minnie, running this shop with occasional help from my husband, J.T.
Minnie Box is driven by the feeling I get when spreading joy to others, and the biggest response received to date are 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, Housewarming, Just Because, New Adventures, Thank You, Thinking of You, and Weddings.
