Who We Are

We are a small business built on a Christmas present from husband to wife; a date jar containing sealed envelopes – the same style glass jar that we use today.

We are on a mission to encourage everyone to date more, spend quality time with friends, make memories with your family – and most of all have fun! Life is fast paced and fitting it all in is tricky, often the best bits are the first things we give up – the adventures, the date nights, the laughter.

All our ideas are sealed in envelopes, so there is a surprise for everyone, and the decision is made for you once you open the card.

A thoughtful gift that has led to an award winning business, and lots of happy couples all over the world.

Just a little reminder today, to me as a well as you, that there's life outside these squares too! As a small business the algorithm is not our friend, but we also need to take a step back and realise its OK. These things take time and we can't be everything to to everyone. This card in our Just For You box is a tough one for most - but one of the most important. Fellow small biz owner, mummy and friend Emma @isabella_and_us shared this pic - love the little fingers creeping in! - and it seemed like a good reminder to me to step back, take your time and make time x . . . . #switchoff #selfcarebox #selfcareinabox #maketimeforyou #ayearofselfcare #justforyou #justforme #timeforme #takeyourtime #takingmytime #mondaymotivation #mondaygratitude #smallbusiness ...
