What they do:

Personalized gifts and baskets. Gift box aims to add that added personal touch, without imposing the effort on the buyer to add that touch.

About Gift Box:

The aim of the company will be to sell and produce personalized gifts. Customers will have the benefit of “building” their own gifts or baskets. The idea stemmed from a feasible business idea to target the new trends of “drive-ins”. The market has people watch movies from the comfort of their cars. I would like to approach said drive-ins and market the “goody baskets” there. This idea snowballed into something bigger, evolving into what is like a personal shopper. The busy couples, having the luxury of shopping for a date night basket. Adding a personal touch to an anniversary or milestone. Personalized goods or treats. Approaching wedding venues, to create a personalized wedding basket or treat box, for the evening of the wedding, or as a treat for the honeymoon. Steering away from the conventional baby shower gift wrapping or gifts.
