Meet The Brands
The Gift Box Builder is all about bringing brands together.
We've chosen to work with other small businesses that have similar values and ethos to ours, whether it be through their sustainable, ethical ethos or their motivational and uplifting messages.
This is just the beginning! The more our gift box builder gets used, the more we'll be able to invest into other small businesses and offer you a wider range of goodies!
Let me introduce you...
"I want to live a more conscious, sustainable life and with this in mind, I had started to get frustrated with the number of cards that end up in the bin. I started to look into an eco-friendly option, which led me to plantable paper embedded with wildflower seeds.
I'm constantly thinking of developing new products so I can offer a wide variety of plantable products for people who are looking for an eco-friendly gift to give with the aim of supporting our bee population. Last June I started to make my own bee-friendly wildflower seed bombs."
CUSTARD MOON is owned by Laura, who creates hand-sewn, sustainable scrunchies, encouraging others to think about the planet and how we are leaving it for future generations.
"We aim to be as eco conscious as we possibly can be by sourcing our fabrics and packaging from other eco friendly businesses. We breathe life into fabrics, giving them a new lease of life rather than them being thrown away into a landfill or being thrown in to the back of a cupboard, never to be seen or wore again!
Our fabrics are bought from three other small businesses and we always choose the best fabrics which will be long lasting and unique and provide a more sustainable view on how to use cut offs/deadstocks to create beautiful products!"
LUISA'S VEGAN CHOCOLATES is based in Nottingham and has a female-led team; Luisa and her daughter Isabella.
"We directly source the world's very best tasting beans from conscientious farmers that truly look after their crops and manage their business in the most ethical and sustainable way.
The team have been out to meet the farmers to ensure ethical working conditions, teach them how to cultivate, and build strong and powerful relationships. This has made a significant difference to communities across the globe.
We believe in sourcing the best, paying farmers more, and working together to create the world's finest chocolate.
We believe that chocolate should not be seen as a cheap commodity, but should be appreciated more."
NUDITEA was created in 2019 by Sophie and Josh, born out of their mutual love for tea.
"Our goal was to make tea as exciting and conscious as coffee has become. So we set out to create delicious, quality and great value blends, and are excited to have created a truly ethical, sustainable and independent little tea company.
We put our tea drinkers and the planet first. This is why we took our time with each blend, creating teas that we love and would genuinely buy ourselves. It’s also why all our packaging, blends and teabags are 100% Plastic Free and Compostable, and why we shop small from other small and independent businesses whenever we can. We believe in putting people and the planet first before profit."
SECRET BATH BOMBS was founded by Babu during lockdown as a way of creating beautiful, natural bath bombs for her friends and family.
"Your skin is your largest organ and it is essential to take care of it and spoil it with amazing ingredients from the mother nature. Therefore I use only the highest quality clean ingredients. Mainly organic butters like shea, coconut and cocoa butter, amazing oils such as avocado, strawberry seed, rosehip, pure essential oils and organic salts.
I am a positive person and not only our skin but also our soul needs care and love so I decided to put positive, encouraging quotes into the bombs and I am sure you will always read the words you need to read in that moment."
A DOSE OF REMINDERS was created by Zu as a way of expressing colourful and positive reminders. Sadly, her shop is closed for the foreseeable, which means that there's limited stock on our current keyrings. Get them before they sell out!
"It's okay to put you and your wellbeing first. You deserve to look after yourself and treat yourself with kindness."
