Seems I have become Christmas obsessed. One of my favourite things to give (and receive) this year, gift baskets. Not just any old gift baskets, but one’s put together with care and love. But then something happened, I was introduced to You’ve Been Gifted. A new Canadian company, currently specializing in Christmas boxes available to be shipped right across this great country.
You’ve Been Gifted is not your typical commercial, mass produced, cello wrapped experience. This boutique style on-line store is different!
Let me tell you how:
Made in Canada –The items featured are sourced from independent, family-owned or owner-operated producers.
Ships in Canada -Gift Boxes are shipped from within Canada to all across Canada. Prices for shipping are very reasonable and clearly set out on their site. I checked.
Handcrafted-The artisanal foods in the gift boxes are handmade in small batches using the finest, purest and freshest ingredients. Oh not to mention, delicious!
I must add you can FEEL the love and attentions that is out into every single gift box. Carefully arranged, lovingly packed and simply wrapped.
I think this says it all:
You’ve Been Gifted is a modern twist on old-fashioned hospitality –
a pretty gift box filled with handmade items,
delivered by post with a handwritten note.
Yes, a handwritten note! When a box arrives on your doorstep from You’ve Been Gifted it feels like someone close to you has just sent you a little piece of home. Love.
The lovely Muriel sent me one Holiday Deluxe Gift Box to review, and one to GIVE AWAY!!!! How fabulous! This little baby landed on my doorstep just this week.
