Bee Happy Gifts (As Part of the #ShopSmall Blog Series)

This post is part of my #ShopSmall Blog Series

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll have seen a sneak peek of the Bee Happy Gift Box I was very kindly sent. India Thompson is the brains behind this amazing business that is bound to put a smile on your face! (Trust me, when I unwrapped it and opened it up I was wowed!)

So what’s Bee Happy Gifts all about? Think gift box AND supporting small/local businesses and ta daa you get this…

When India first contacted me about doing a blog review I had already seen her fab photos on Instagram and knew she was on the same page as me with supporting the Small Biz community. So I was really excited.
The box arrived very quickly and was perfectly wrapped in brown paper with a little logo sticker on the outside. Then inside there was the box wrapped in twine string with a cute little tag personalised with my name. There was also a lovely large Bee Happy Gifts sticker on top too!  Waiting inside were some really wonderful and thoughtful gifts. I love the yellow nest paper in there – it’s like being a big kid and rummaging around to see what’s inside! To top it all off there was a personalised card and a business card. India has absolutely nailed the little personal touches!!
Now time to do a little unpacking of this amazing gift box.
First up some very tasty Border’s biscuits, a lovely white mug and a hot chocolate stirrer stick from Cambridge Chocolates. This is a recipe for a delicious hot chocolate, right?!


Next up there’s this beautiful handmade soap from The Essential Soaps. I love using a soap bar, it always makes your hands feel really clean and more often than not the ingredients are much more natural therefore kinder to your skin!

The gorgeous triangular sachet is by Walnut Tree Designs and has a wonderful lavender scent to it! Lavender is one of my favourite scents. Calming, relaxing and refreshing.

Also, as you can see, there is a little lip balm there from Our Tiny Bees. 100% natural and does wonders (I’ve been using it today!)

I LOVE candles so when I found this little beauty in the box by The Candle Company Cambridge I was so happy. 1. Because it is a soy candle and I am a massive supporter of these. 2. It smells gorgeous.

Then, in case you don’t already feel relaxed with everything in this box there’s this pair of very fluffy socks to keep your feet warm and snug!

As you can tell I am absolutely in love with this Small Biz! I just think the whole concept is wonderful and to receive a box like this with so many exciting bits inside is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face. What I also love about Bee Happy Gifts is that it is actually very very local to me and therefore using lots of local businesses that I didn’t actually know about!

The box is very lovingly put together and an incredible amount of thought goes into each one. There’s a choice of gift boxes available online (from £8.99) or you can even build your own which I think is a great option. Coming soon are baby boxes, a gentleman’s box (perfect for Father’s Day) and an engagement box. I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s inside these. Also, when you individually price up each item inside the value is fantastic and India does all the lovely touches for you.

Please please consider buying one of these to send to someone. Perhaps you’ve got a bestie miles away or you all need to get a colleague a leaving gift? Whatever the occasion, India can help you out!

Thank you so much for sending me this box India.. I’m off to make myself a hot chocolate!

    Thanks for highlighting my chocolate stirrer. I enjoy working with Bee Happy Gifts. This is a lovely review. What I love about India’s idea is her determination to keep the produce handmade and local. Thanks Rebecca x

    This box is gorgeous, so many lovely treats and what a good idea to support all her local businesses too. I think my favourites are the soap and lip balm but with Fathers Day coming up in the not too distant future I can see the gentlemans’ boxes flying off the shelves. I’m going to head on over and take a look around – not just for self-care, these would make wonderful birthday gifts too. Fab review and photos as always, Rebecca. I love your #ShopSmall series, there are always so many gems to find! x
