The Uptown Giftbox Company strives to create personalized presents by sourcing an array of quality items from all over the world and putting them together in one beautiful box — or bag or basket. From the “Pink, Posh and Pampered” spa package for a girlfriend’s birthday to the “Patio Daddy-O” for Father’s Day, there’s a wide assortment of signature gift boxes perfect for any occasion. You can also work with a consultant to design your own package (ordering can be done online or customers can visit the South Surrey showroom). The Giftbox Company takes great pride in presentation and packaging and considers that part of the present, so expect the likes of handcrafted Arbutus boxes and organic silk ribbons. Whether you want one unique gift box for a wedding or 1,000 to give your valued clients for Christmas, Uptown can accommodate any request and ship gifts anywhere in the world.
Uptown GiftBoxes have been enjoyed by celebrities and CEOs alike, but who wants to hear about the Fortune 500 clients? Peter O’Toole is diabetic, so when he was in town to shoot The Christmas Cottage, his gift box (a leather hat box) included sugar-free candies from the U.K. and savory snacks from local purveyors. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger sent a personal thank-you note after his entourage was welcomed to Vancouver with a gift box. The celebrity roster also includes Richard Dreyfuss, Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, Pam Grier, Mia Kirshner and Catherine Bell, not to name-drop or anything.
As any good businessperson knows, recognizing relationships with clients and associates is of utmost important, and a meaningful gift goes a long way. Uptown helps companies create gift boxes that fit with their corporate style and message by working with them to choose appropriate items and branding them with corporate logos and colour palettes. Benefits to corporate clients also include customer tracking, volume pricing and gifting plans.
