our mission

To make gifting easy, inspirational and meaningful for everyone.

our story

As two single mothers of multiple special needs children, we were inspired by past challenges to join forces and build a business that could not only provide for our own children, but also supports others.  Not only are we a Detroit based female owned business, but we support the livelihood of other female entrepreneurs around the country by exclusively sourcing products that are created or sold by other female owned companies.

our values


We are proud to partner with Alternative for Girls (AFG). A portion of all proceeds from the sale of each box is donated to this amazing organization.  AFG is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization, and their mission is to help homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy, and exploitation, and help them to explore and access the support, resources, and opportunities necessary to be safe, to grow strong, and to make positive choices in their lives. 

With love and thanks, Michelle & Carrie
