A Gift as a Whole

Giving a gift is about taking the time to thoughtfully choose something that the receiver will truly appreciate.

When it came time to choose my bridesmaids, I didn't want to put all of their individually chosen gifts into a cardboard box and call it a day. It took weeks to find all of these trinkets that were unique to each girl and a cardboard box didn't seem to suffice, so I decided to make my own.

Each box in each collection has been carefully and thoughtfully designed so that you can be proud of the gifts you give to your bridesmaids, groomsmen, future nieces and nephews, birthday boys and birthday girls, or anyone you care about. Each box is first sanded in a 3-step process, either papered or wood burned, painted with two coats, stained on the inside and/or outside, and completed with 2 coats of polyurethane to ensure each box will last. One box takes about an hour to make – no corners cut here! Follow us on Instagram for daily updates on new boxes and what we're up to.

If our pre-designed boxes are almost perfect, but would be even better in a different color, head on over to our Customize Page where you can pick and choose what the lid, trim, and body of each box looks like. Feel like patterning the entire box? Painting the whole thing Habanero Red? The world is your oyster. Have a family crest or a particular image that would be great on a box for your dad or brother? Send it over! Part of the fun is taking the time to think about what your loved one would find very personal and thoughtful. Send us an e-mail for more details and information.

    I have always loved giving gifts. My mother taught me that packaging is just as important as the gift itself. The Box Brigade was born to allow people to take their gifts to the next level by adding another dimension of thoughtfulness and care.

Thanks for visiting The Box Brigade!

Each box is hand sanded, painted, stained, papered, wood burned, etc. In addition, each box is made-to-order and made to your specifications.

Due to this, I ask that you please understand that turnaround time from date of purchase to delivery is between 2-3 weeks.

If you need an order expedited, I am more than happy to work with you - just shoot me a message.

All orders can be customized - just because you don't see it doesn't mean it isn't possible!

Thanks for your support,
The Box Lady

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Because each box is made to order, I am unable to accept returns of any kind. If your box does not meet your needs, please let me know and I will make it right to the best of my ability. If your box arrives damaged, please send me photos of the box it was mailed in, along with any photos of damage. I will do my best to replace any damaged goods.
If, after purchase, you decide to expedite shipping, I am more than happy to work with you. I reserve the right to charge you for the extra cost of expedited shipping. I insure all of my shipments in case of damage.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am willing to work with you on ALL custom orders. Please note that the unfinished boxes that I purchase from my supplier ALL VARY IN NATURE. This is beyond my control and ranges from discoloration of the box (that I do my best to conceal), fillers, unusual grains from the wood itself, lid alignment and the range in which the lid opens.

Each box takes hours to complete - from the layers upon layers of sanding, to the detailed woodburning and staining, to the final coats of polyurethane. I want you to LOVE your box, so please let me know if you are less than satisfied!

As always, small businesses thrive on positive reviews, and I would love the chance to make any disappointments up to you before you leave a review.
