We do things a little bit different

Genuinely irresistible products

As Islanders, something most of us can agree on is minimizing waste. At Vancouver Island in a Box, we recognize people have individual tastes and preferences, and there’s no “one size fits all,” especially with gift boxes. We identified a wasteful nature in traditional gift baskets often containing items that end up sitting on shelves for months (looking at you, dry crackers). Therefore, all of our gift boxes offer a fully customizable option to suit the recipient’s personal needs. We carefully curate our vendor list to reflect the most high quality and irresistible products the Island has to choose from. Our goal is to provide customers with a gift that will be FULLY appreciated from start to finish.

Minimizing waste is a priority

Something else we observed is that traditional gift baskets often contain extensive packaging with no practical use after the fact, again ending up on shelves for months, and eventually landfills. We therefore use minimalistic, recyclable packaging to cut down on waste while maintaining a more sleek and attractive appearance.

The perfect gift for anyone, on any occasion

Finally, we realize it can be tough shopping for that person who seems to have *everything.* This often results in gifts that again, end up on shelves. When you send the gift of Vancouver Island in a Box, you’re sending local, irresistible goodies that will actually be used, and a small reminder of home. We like to think of Vancouver Island in a Box as the perfect gift idea for anyone, on any occasion :)
