Advert: Box of Smiles

Hello, I'm Sarah...

The idea behind Box of Smiles was born after having my second child in 2013. I had a few friends that had poorly children and I wanted to create something fun that would keep them occupied in hospital and make them smile. I remembered the story book My Naughty Little Sister - The Cross Spotty Child. 

The child was poorly and her Mum made her a Get Better Box. It was a small box filled with exciting little things to play with. My mum made me and my sisters one and I remembered the pure delight of being ill just so the Get Better Box would come out. I even remember once hair drying my forehead and putting the thermometer to my bedside lamp's light bulb so I could get a day off school and play with the cherished box of treats. 

So I started creating Get Better Boxes for friends if their little ones were very poorly or had a hospital trip. I had such positive reactions to the boxes that I started investigating the idea a little further. I simply wanted to surprise and delight! I've experimented with several different gift boxes but after the birth of my third child I really wanted to focus on mums because I felt strongly about this deserving collective receiving some TLC and recognition after giving birth. 
I also concentrated on gifts for new babies. After having three babies, the gifts that I really treasured were the ones that thought had obviously gone into and the ones that had my babies' name on. Just seeing my new baby's name printed, stitched or engraved on something (anything to be honest) was so special. 
As I carried on making new baby and mum boxes, I realised there was a need for a gift to simply say thank you or I'm thinking of you. A token of appreciation or a kind gesture to support a friend. Something that a card, text or bunch of flowers wasn't quite going to do. 
So here I am, on a little quest of my own, to try and make people smile...  I also enjoy a large glass of red wine (or two) when the kids go to bed! That makes me smile anyway!
At Box of Smiles we are passionate about creating a gift that is going to generate a big bright smile. A lot of time and thought has gone into sourcing our products so you don't have to. Each carefully considered box of treats is beautifully packaged with the addition of personal touches to make it a truly special gift.
If you need something specific, whether it's personal or corporate, do get in touch and we can discuss your gift box requirements.


And to the Dad’s with little kiddies - “don’t forget the mummies!”.

The situation in Syria is deeply troubling. With advances in social media, the issues don't feel so distant and as human beings we feel it's something that we simply can't shy away from.
