Gifts with purpose
Storybox is a community interest initiative started with the mission of supporting and raising awareness of social enterprises and local businesses based in Northern Ireland through sharing stories and bringing together #giftswithpurpose.
The Glow box isn’t your typical 'pamper box' filled with all things soap and face masks (although self-care in that way is important too!) but rather aims to provide some meaningful advice, experiences and tips on looking after yourself and those around you, accompanied by some comforting goodies – a combination that someone will hopefully find both comfort and inspiration in!

We loved the Storybox initiative and were extremely glad to use our purchasing power for good this year by supporting local businesses in the community on the run up to Christmas. Rachel worked with us on our budget and preferences to find the perfect gift that could be distributed easily to the team across four sites. We were delighted with how well the gift boxes were received and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the service!"

We purchased six Mindful Moments boxes as a token of thanks to staff. Each box contained a mixture of local social enterprise and independent business goods along with a personal message, all in beautiful eco friendly gift packaging. Service was great and our team loved them - we were delighted to support local businesses in this way.

When we were looking for a special gift for our clients, we were keen to support other local businesses and social enterprises with this purchase. We came across Storybox at a virtual event and thought the idea behind these gifts was very meaningful and at the same time, a worthwhile and unique gift for someone. We ordered 25 boxes in total and were very happy with how the gifts were received. Fantastic service and hope to purchase again in the future.”
