The hard-working Christmas Elves at Story, have just packed their final pre-Christmas Artisan Gift Box, having worked weekends and evenings to complete and deliver 2,871 gift boxes for 11 clients over the last three weeks.
We scoured the furthest corners of the country to seek out some great gifts from local start-ups and more established niche producers; from soap makers in rural Yorkshire, to honey producers in Scotland and distillers in deepest Cornwall; all of whom have their own special story to tell.
And we are delighted to have supported so many of these smaller local producers with 15,024 individual items ordered and delivered to our offices for fulfilment. Whilst the majority of the gift boxes we delivered to UK doorsteps, our amazing courier partners, AmWorld, also ensured their safe arrival in many other countries including Ireland, Poland, Belgium, Bulgaria, The Netherlands and the US.
Whilst our Elves are now resting up (and looking forward to opening a few gifts for a change!), our Artisan Gifting service will be fully operational in 2021, offering wellbeing and virtual event deliveries to support Kickstart conferences and other Q1 events, whilst we all eagerly await the return of live events after Easter.
