Happy Birthday to...us.
This March 17th our online baby baskets boutique turns 5, and what an amazing journey it has been. When I think of my granddaughters turning five, I must admit the business itself has met similar developmental milestones:
*Self-control: From the beginning it has been all about carefully considered curation for the consumer. From our seasonal baskets to our neutral or gendered selections, there’s choice for everyone.
*Creativity: our basket presentation is unlike any other. Handmade, sustainable, reusable. It was a creative process to get it just right, read about it here.
*Eager to try new things: We are always on the lookout for new designers to add to our roster. We support local designers and believe in a diverse range of creativity. Keep an eye out for our short designer profiles and read about our most recent additions here.
*Expression of emotions: We view our blog as a gateway to communicate further with our customers and not just about our offerings. Conversations about gifting, parenting, grand-parenting, the challenges, the celebrations, and the continued joy of babies keep us engaged. It has been a space for me as well to share, read my most personal entry here.
I started this business because I was my target customer. I was working in a corporate job and found there was a need for luxury gift baskets for corporate baby gifting. The existing gift baskets companies were simply not meeting the standards that I knew my colleagues, business associates, and friends longed for. I decided to fill that gap.
I had four principles to build from and I can proudly say that in five years I have not compromised. If anything, my resolve has strengthened:
1) I wanted to offer refined goods and brand names for quality and design.
2) I was eager to source clean skin care products for delicate new-to-the-world soft baby skin.
3) I knew that there were safe, chemical free toys for little developing minds and fingers.
4) And finally, I wanted to house these carefully selected and arranged items in reusable, environmentally friendly packaging.
Along the way I’ve made awesome friends and rewarding partnerships with like minded people on like minded missions, from fabulous and creative designers to amazing charities, to other entrepreneurs. We have been encouraged and emboldened by your support.
