Hello, my name is Becky and I am the founder of the Cotswold Box Company.
I’m a wife and a mum of 3 boys, a beautician by trade, and have lived in the Cotswolds for most of my life (I spent a couple of years in leafy Hertfordshire when I first met my husband) but we decided when we had our first son to move back to this beautiful area we call home.
Truth be known, I am, and always have been, a shopaholic! I love shopping, sometimes for myself of course, but I get the greatest joy choosing gifts to give as presents for others, then really spending the time with the presentation of the gifts. This started at a very young age, I would go on school trips as a child and couldn't wait to scour the souvenir shops to choose presents to take home for my family!
On a recent shopping trip with a friend she turned to me and said: “Why don’t you look to buy yourself something, you are always pointing out gifts for other people”
And there we have it, on my drive home I had my lightbulb moment, that is just what I love to do, put together gifts for other people that I would love to receive myself. And there was born The Cotswold Box Company. A luxury gifting experience, with products hand selected from The Cotswolds Finest producers.
I get to help people choose fabulous gifts for other people, spread the joy of gifting, making people feel loved & special. Dream job right there. The bonus is being able to be around for my boys whilst they are growing up, and work my business around them.
There are so many super businesses in the Cotswolds and I’m excited to be able to bring these together in luxury themed boxes that I hope you love as much as I do. I love supporting and shouting out about these wonderful independent businesses, please do head over to our partners page to find out more about each one.
Finally, I would just like to say that I am committed to reducing waste. The gift boxes are fully recyclable (although I do feel it would be fabulous for using as a keepsake box when all the products have been used) we use recyclable bubble wrap to post our boxes and all greeting cards will come naked (no plastic sleeves here) all our partners are hand selected and respect our planet as much as we do!
I hope you enjoy shopping with The Cotswold Box Company time and time again.
