We like to talk about everything from home decor to fashion to parenting. The main overall theme though is FUN. If you don't like to laugh, then this probably isn't the place for you.
One of my absolute favorite things to do is to buy gifts for people. I would truly rather give a gift than receive a gift. (Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not gonna turn down a present if somebody really wants to give me one! I’m not THAT crazy!) It just brings me so much joy to make someone happy. So when I recently discovered that a friend of mine had started her own gifting business, my curiosity was naturally peaked.
Patti and her friend Carrie launched The Meltdown Company in May of 2018. They are a small batch goods gifting company that specializes in hand-poured candles, diffusers, room/linen sprays, all-natural balms, salves, scrubs and much more. And they love to partner with other like-minded artisans to create beautiful, customized gift boxes. When you order, you can either select specific items for your box or choose from one of their signature boxes. They handle everything from the box creation on down to the shipping and even include special little touches like greenery, bows, and personalized gift cards.
I was doing a full-out happy dance when I received their “Merry, Merry” gift box this week. Every little detail is truly thought out. The moment you open the box, you just know that it was put together with great care.
Inside the box, I found an adorable 100% cotton striped dish towel, an agave/sea salt soy/coconut candle that smells AH-MAZING, the cutest little container of green-tipped matches, a bag of to die-for sea salt caramel bites, and a yummy bag of BobbySue’s nuts. Special little touches like a jingle bell, a fresh sprig of evergreen, and a mini birch log were just the icing on the cake.
These lovely little boxes would make such incredible holiday gifts! I plan to order them for hostess gifts, as well as Christmas gifts. And what I love is that you can pick and choose products that you think would best suit each recipient. The signature boxes run anywhere between $30 to $148, but you can customize a box to fit your budget. Just think how excited your kid’s teacher would be to receive a unique gift like this versus another boring old teacher mug or ornament. I told my husband that he should think about these for people in his office. They even have a male-themed box that would be perfect for dads and grandpas. The possibilities really are endless!
