Why I am So Passionate About Spreading the TreatBox Love
Posted on July 09 2019
I thought it was about time I shared more about me and behind the brand. I am not going to lie writing doesn't come easy to me; I find it hard to put how I feel and my views down into words. But I think it is such a great way to connect with you, so I want to give it my best shot!Making You A Priority
I wanted to share with you my 'why' and why I am so passionate about TreatBoxes values and everything it stands for.
I started the monthly box in 2015. My partner worked full time, and I stayed at home looking after our children in a town where I didn’t know many people we had not long moved, I had Luca and Evelyn. Luca was four and Evelyn was two, I needed something to fill the gaps, that sounds a little crazy, fill the gaps? What gaps? You have two small children; surely there aren’t any gaps? Well there was, of course, I loved spending time with my children, but I felt lonely and needed something that was for me, I'd always wanted to do something of my own, run my own business but didn’t ever feel like it was possible with a low income and two young children, how would I even start?
At this time subscription boxes were growing in popularity but were mostly beauty boxes, and nothing felt all that special to me. Feeling lonely and not getting much time for myself I thought how lovely it would be to receive a little pick-me-up package now and again and so TreatBox was born.
I designed TreatBox to remind you that you are worth being kind to and to take some time to look after you, a little reminder you are doing alright, and each box is filled with the positivity you might need to keep going, and really the perfect pick me up to start a new month and making each item which is featured in the box useful.
Personalised Gifts That Quite Literally, Go The Distance
From the success of the monthly TreatBox, Build a Box was created. I was looking for a gift for a friend who was struggling, I wanted to be there to comfort her, but it wasn't physically possible; she lived miles away. Flowers and other gifts didn't feel personal enough to me. I wanted something from me that I picked for my friend with a private handwritten message, and I knew this was something that needed to be in the world; something that connects loved ones afar and to be able to let them know you are there for them, a hug through the post when you can't be there in person.
I feel so passionate, and I care how that loved one feels when they open their Treatbox, and I want them to feel like the box had been wrapped with so much love, just for them. The daily gift messages we receive with each order is heartwarming being able to spread joy, love and gratitude between family and friends when the world can sometimes feel like a gloomy place will always make me so happy! x
Just take a look at some of the heartwarming, lovely messages we have received, how can I not LOVE what I do.
"Hello, I would just like to thank you. I put together a treat box for my daughter for mummy's day, as she had just had her baby daughter ( Pollyanna ) the treat box was for my 3 year old grandson to give to his mummy and she adored it, she actually cried, because she was so touched. So thank you so much for such a beautiful, touching moment. I will remember my grandsons face and my daughters face, it was lovely. Xxx"

"I absolutely love the personalised feel of the treatboxes and have had them many times. When my bank balance allows I will definitely be buying more subscriptions.
A lot of hard work, time and care goes into them and it definitely shows... please keep up the hard work."
"Amazing service! What a lovely idea too, I purchased a TreatBox for my mum on Mother’s Day and I was really impressed with the number of items to choose from when placing my order. The package arrived within perfect timing and my mum was chuffed with the contents. She was really impressed with the handwritten message in there too - which I was amazed at! Definitely recommend. Ideal gift for any occasion, even if you just want to send a friend a pick-me-up! I’ll definitely use this service again in the future."
"I've been subscribing to Treatbox for about 3.5 years now, and I absolutely love them. Each one is so well though out, and such a gorgeous pick me up to receive in the post each month. Zoe herself is a joy to deal with. Her commitment to customer service is what makes her stand out as a small business. You can tell she has a real passion for unique and thoughtful products. Can't recommend Treatbox highly enough. Love them!"
