Box of Hugs was started in 2016 with the goal of making handmade and handcrafted products that brings a smile to peoples faces. I was laid off from a job that I planned on retiring from so that is how we started. We are located in the Niagara Region in Ontario, Canada. I am a grandmother of three and mother of two beautiful daughters. My partner is the most supportive man and is my biggest fan as he is always promoting Box of Hugs because he sees the hard work and dedication I have to this business.
I create my own recipes for products and carefully test on my family and friends. I use reclaimed and recycled items for embellishments and packaging as much as possible to be more cautious of what is used and what is thrown in the landfill.
My passion is soap making. The colours and scents that are available are astounding. I also love to make journals and memory books for different occasions.
The cremation ash resin jewelry came about when my daughter lost her locket with her fathers ashes a few years ago. I made her a resin necklace and she wears it everyday. People have been asking about purchasing one and that is how this new journey started. I make pendants with ashes from our beloved pets as well. I also make custom breast milk resin pendants for necklaces and keychains.
