Gifts with purpose
Storybox is a registered CIC (Community Interest Company) founded to support and raise awareness of social enterprises and local business by bringing together excellent quality #giftswithpurpose.
Storybox provides an opportunity for someone to not only receive a quality and worthwhile gift that supports local, but also showcases the social initiatives behind some of the inspiring businesses we have operating in Northern Ireland. Businesses that are changing the traditional ways of doing business and who are playing a vital part in building a fairer, more sustainable world.
BRAND NEW SLEEVE DESIGN
Introducing our brand new sleeve illustrated by Danni Simpson.
At Storybox we're all about collaboration. When looking into a new design we thought it was a great opportunity to support an artist based locally in N. Ireland to help us create a new sleeve as the perfect finishing touch for your Storybox. We hope you'll agree that Danni has done a fantastic job designing a sleeve that captures the Storybox brand and ethos as well as celebrating #Local and #Iconic landmarks, What a beautiful piece of art to complete your #GiftWithPurpose.
Every box purchased through our 'Build Your Own' or bespoke range will now be finished and sent with this exclusive sleeve.

Karen Gilgunn, USEL
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!"
Kelli McRoberts, Carrickfergus Enterprise
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.
Martina Magee, Windsor Women's Centre
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.”
