Shop Box Fox
We know planning a wedding can be a stressful process. With Glow, we are all about streamlining your to do’s and making the planning process as seamless and enjoyable as possible. After discovering a company we absolutely adore, we quickly realized we had to share our new little secret! Enter BOXFOX.
I wish I knew about BOXFOX when planning my wedding–their Bridesmaid gift boxes are the CUTEST. And the best part? You can customize them to your unique taste, or choose from their many curated options.
We chatted with co-founder Chelsea Moore to get gifting tips straight from the expert. You’re welcome!
Q: As engagement season is coming to an end and wedding season is fast approaching, my brides have been asking for suggestions on how to “pop” the question to their bridesmaids. What are some of the most popular items your foxes order?
A: At BOXFOX, it’s our mission to curate the best gifts so our customers don’t have to. When it comes to weddings, we really pride ourselves on sourcing items for every type of relationship and vibe–whether it’s more glam, beachy, or rustic. Some of our most popular items are the Odeme Gold Compact Mirror (which we’ll engrave when requested!) and the Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kits. Other lovely additions are our exclusive luxe pashminas (the ivory is a bestseller) and Sugarfina Champagne Gummy Bears (because who doesn’t love their candy with a side of bubbly?).
Q: My brides generally want custom and personalized details. What are some ways a bride can tailor her box to match her bridesmaids’ personalities in the gifting process?
A: At BOXFOX, we know that weddings are a true reflection of the bride and groom, down to the last detail. And since we’re all about keeping gifting personal, we love working with our brides to come up with a meaningful and elevated gifts for the most important women in their lives, their bridesmaids! We can source custom product based on the wedding destination or bride’s hometown, get certain items engraved with bridesmaid names, and even come up with gift ideas for little helpers like the flower girl! The possibilities are endless — it’s so much fun.
Q: I was perusing your site and love all your products, from bling wipes, to Volupsa candles, to your Kate Spade note pads. And in all honesty, if I was a bride it would be hard to chose. What are your 3 must haves in any “be my bridesmaid box”?
A: We hear this all the time! It’s a great problem to have since we work hard to curate a selection of products our customers will love, but it can be hard to narrow it down. For us, the three bridesmaid must-haves are our gold glitter Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit, our pink silk sleep mask, and our Sugarfina Sugar Lips gummies (fun to pose with and to eat). But we love that each bride is different and wants her gifts to reflect her personal relationship with her bridesmaids — so there really is no wrong answer here!
Q: What are some suggestions you have when gifting?
A: We have three fool-proof rules/mantras when it comes to gifting:
- Give with purpose. When you’re giving a gift, take the second to think about what your recipient would want but wouldn’t dream of buying for themselves, or even a more beautiful take on something they’ll always need. It’ll make for a memorable, super personal gift.
- Note the note. In 2016, we’re constantly texting, emailing, emojing, and Snapchatting our feelings. And while we love technology, it also makes the timeless gesture of a handwritten note that much more important and impactful. Gifts are so much more meaningful when we can express the thought behind them.
- It’s the box that counts. Easy for us to say — but what we really mean is that presentation is everything! Nothing represents the time and care put into a gift quite like the way it’s wrapped. There’s no reason to spend too much time or money either. Get creative with tissue, wrapping paper, twine, and even flowers and leaves to make a Pinterest-worthy package.
Q: I’ve seen more and more gifting companies pop up recently! Why do you think this is such a huge trend?
A: As technology becomes a bigger part of our lives, the tangible gestures–gift-giving among them–make even more of an impact. We’re happy to say we’re the only company that offers both pre-packed gift boxes and our proprietary BUILD A BOXFOX, which lets our customers create their dream gift. We’re always innovating to come up with tools and products that keep gifting simple, pretty, and personal.
Q: What should brides expect to find with BOXFOX that they can’t anywhere else?”
A: We always say that we’re your go-to for gifting. But we really mean that. Our dedicated team is extremely hands-on, from sourcing quality product, to offering suggestions for every person in the bridal party, to adding personal touches like calligraphy nametags and custom wedding agenda inserts. We’re all about the personal touch — it’s why we do what we do every day!
