We love to think outside of the box and with that thought in mind, "unboxed gifts" have become a fast favorite for us. We thought it would be beneficial to show you in this post some of our favorite ideas for gifting those you love. This time around we are leaving the element of surprise out and exposing those thoughtful and creative gifts on display for all to see.

We don't want to confuse you, we still love a well crafted and thought-out gift experience that requires creativity from the card down to the wrapping paper, bows and tissue. However focusing on a bundle experience all contained in a unique basket or open container excites us just as much and we wanted to feature a few below.

Follow along with us as we take you through a few of the themed unboxed gifts we have created!


Finding that one gift for a new home owner can be overwhelming. Try finding a few smaller items that match the new houses decor or style!
