The Convenience of Set Boxes

The Convenience of Set Boxes

Personalised gift giving has been blowing up for a number of years. Consumers have been shifting to shopping online for quite a while, for one thing. The COVID-19 pandemic turbocharged that trend, expanding to £148.5 billion during the 2021 holiday season.

One of the biggest reasons for this shift is that we want to find the perfect gift. Unfortunately, that can take hours upon hours to search for in person if you can find it at all. Studies show that shoppers can  spend up to 15 hours hunting for the perfect gift.

Set boxes remove all of that.

Let's take a look at a few more of the advantages of a preloaded gift box, so you can find the perfect gift for everybody on your list!

What Are Set Boxes?

If this is your first time hearing of a set box, or a preloaded gift box, let's start with an introduction.

What is a set box?

Set boxes are UK gift boxes that come preloaded with a carefully curated selection of goods. These gift boxes often have a set theme, like our Thank You gift box for example.

There are set boxes available for every conceivable occasion. There are varieties for any and everybody, as well. Whether you're shopping for a foodie or a fashionista, there's some sort of gift hamper that will thrill and delight them.

Advantages of Set Boxes

As we said up top, one of the biggest benefits of choosing set boxes for your loved ones is the time you save. That's just one of the many, many advantages of gifting a gift box, however.

Let's look at a few more reasons why you should give gift boxes this next holiday season.

Chosen by Professional Shoppers

We all want to give the perfect gift but sometimes that's easier said than done. For one thing, people can be notoriously tricky to shop for. We don't want to just gift junk that's gonna clutter up someone's closet before ending up in the charity shop.

Secondly, most of us don't have time to keep our eyes on all of the emerging tastes and trends. We might not be able to keep an eye out for inspiring Bristol cheese makers or cider breweries, for instance.

Gift box companies keep an eye on all of that for you. A set box is made up  of the choicest, most interesting products from local artisans, businesses, and tastemakers.

A Useful Prompt 

We might have an idea for something to gift, but a whole package? Rounding out a general idea into a fully-realized dream gift is an artform unto itself. 

With set boxes, you can have an idea of what kind of person someone is and end up with the perfect gift selection. Take our Best Teacher set box, for instance. Simply knowing someone's a teacher's enough to get you a delicious blend of teas, crisps, and a few bottles of local Bristol wine.

All you need to know is they're a teacher and our professional shoppers gift the rest.

Set boxes take all of the stress out of gift giving, so you can focus on making the recipient feel loved and appreciated. After all, gift giving is all about feeling good and spreading the love, isn't it?
