Welcome to Box of Twelve.
My ethos is to provide a gift that is a little bit rebellious. Instead of buying things, it encourages us to do things instead. We’ve all been there, it’s someone’s birthday, or Christmas is coming up, and we don’t know what to get. So we might panic buy (and sometimes feel the more money we’ve spent on something, the more accepted it will be), but in all likelihood it wasn’t an item that was really wanted or needed.
Instead, Box of Twelve, offers a thoughtful and personalised gift of doing twelve things, one each month, over the course of a year. It enables you to spend valuable time together with your loved one (be it a partner, friend, sibling, parent etc.), doing well-planned things, and encourages you to do your ‘we’ll do that one day’ adventures together too. You could look at it as a bucket list kick starter if you like.
Literally anything can be planned: inexpensive to the sky’s the limit. A trip to Paris, a walk in the woods, a visit to the British Museum, a week in Italy, a pottery class, a dance class, be a zookeeper for a day, a hike across Snowdon, a meal in the best restaurant in the country, a once in a lifetime trip to the Maldives etc. etc.
My intention is that Box of Twelve will make our loved ones feel really special, loved and appreciated and that it will create a really memorable year.
I provide a hand finished gift box containing twelve individual boxes – one for each month of the year. You choose and plan an experience for each month to treat your loved one and fill out special cards to place inside each box for them to open.
It enables you to choose highly individual, personalised gifts specific to the two of you. It suits all budgets, tastes and interests. You can spend as much or as little as you like and you can mix and match too - the possibilities are endless.
They are perfect for any gift-giving occasion: a birthday, Christmas, an engagement, wedding, anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day for example.
I also offer a concierge service where I help select, book, arrange and present the completed box ready for you to give.
The beautiful box is made using recycled, recyclable materials. It is biodegradable, uses no plastic and all parts are sourced from the UK to keep the carbon footprint to a minimum.
It's easy to store away on a bookshelf throughout the year if you like to keep things neat and tidy, or works just as well on display on a coffee table.
It's also a perfect storage box for keepsakes that are collected throughout the year.
