Get to Know Us Better!
There are a lot of things that float our boat and keep us feeling inspired - and is it really any surprise what with living in the heart of Beautiful BC?!
Love Vancity Gift Boxes was established in Spring 2020, sparked by an instinct to help our local artisans survive the unknowns and tests that COVID-19 brought to small, local businesses.
We soon realized a silver-lining was staring right back at us. We could build a community that stands the test of time, connecting artisans to busy Vancouverites who are longing for fun, stress-free gift options that give-back on multiple levels - all while giving their loved ones a delightful box of goodies and the discovery of new local brands!
Want to learn more? Awesome!
At Love Vancity Gift Boxes we love to have fun with our community, but take our core values seriously. Diversity, Impact & Community, Sustainability, Luxury, and Experience & Discovery are at the heart of every decision, relationship and amazing gift box we curate!
When you boil it all down, this is what we’re about:
Curated gift boxes with feel-good, local artisan treats. Gift love and give back to the community.
Our Give Back Commitment
Our roots are in community work - it's what truly sets our souls on fire. So each quarter, Love Vancity supports a different charity.
For Quarter 2 of 2021, we are thrilled to be supporting Food Stash Foundation, whose twofold mission is to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and address food insecurity within our community. They do this by rescuing good food that would have otherwise gone to waste, and use it to feed those who need it.
Thank you for supporting your local makers. And thank you for supporting your local community here in BC. We’re so happy to have you on this journey with us.
A Letter From Our Founder, Natasha
Well hello there!
Thanks for popping by my little part of the interweb, I'm so excited that you're here!
A little bit about me:
My "day job" is running a boutique sustainable events and weddings company here in Vancouver. While I've had the business now for 4 years, I've been a part of the events industry for nearly 15 years! Where does the time go?!
For those that know Enneagram types, proud Type 2 in the house! I'm known as "the helper" and love love love giving and curating gifts! I've always really enjoyed finding that perfect gift for someone:)
So in March 2020 when the 'rona came to town, Love Vancity Gift Boxes was born. For me, the benefits were twofold: (a) there was no better time to create easy-to-give gifts to pass on to those you love and (b) it was the perfect way to support fellow small business owners, many of whom I've grown to know and love through my events work.
But it's more than that. Love Vancity is a proud to have a diverse roster of artisans included. Together we're diverse, female, and BIPOC owned businesses, with a heart for the sustainable makers too.
