PACK IT IN is an online store where you can buy a mismatch of different items all in one place, all neatly packaged and ready to gift – for a price that doesn’t break the bank.
I hand over to the lovely Laura to tell you all about her Business,
Who are you, and what do you do?
Hello I am Laura, and I run PACK IT IN, which sells the modern day gift hamper in a box, although we have recently been specialising in bridal packs.
We make Bride & Groom SOS packs which contain all you could need for any last minute mishaps on the morning of your big day – even a straw so you can sip champers and not ruin your lipstick!
We have also recently launched a set of mini bathroom baskets, which a couple can buy to put in their venues bathrooms.
They are filled with lovely toiletries to make sure your guests can make the most of the night – such as hairspray for a wonky fringe & plasters for where those new shoes are rubbing!
When and why did you start your Company?
I started the company earlier this year, but started focusing more on bridal bits and pieces after getting married myself in April.
Bathroom baskets and SOS packs are a huge thing in America.
I kept finding these awesome pictures on pinterest and google image and wasn’t able to get my hands on anything similar in the UK.
What inspires you?
Great customers inspire me! I love working with brides on a one to one basis, the mini bathroom baskets were actually based on a bespoke order I did for a bride in the summer.
Having married myself I know what a special day it is and the need for everything to be perfect.
I suppose I am also inspired by the desperation to cling onto everything bridal now my time has passed!!
Do trends influence the products you stock/ service your provide?
Not really with our bridal packs. The gift packs, of course change with each passing holiday.
What is your greatest achievement?
Good question.. I suppose starting a business, going out there alone.
I graduated from a degree in photography just over a year ago and since then I have worked really hard at getting PACK IT IN off the ground.
What do you see as the future of your Company?
I have big plans for PACK IT IN, I’d love to be able to create a platform where bespoke boxes are as easy as a few clicks and a next day delivery – we will see what the future holds!
Here are a few Gift Hamper examples:-
Bridesmaid SOS Box
Ladies Bathroom Basket
Gents Bathroom Basket
Such a fabulous idea for Weddings taking the stress out of Thank you’s for your special people or having those wee things on hand for your Guests that sometimes are needed and that we never seem to have in our handbags.
As well as for your Venue, Pack it in can also provide Honeymoon packs, Wedding favours, Thank you packs, Groomsmen packs, Hen or stag packs, Night before the big day packs, Personalised kids activity packs and a box of flip flops for those tired feet!
Whether you get a gift hamper for your Celebration, a Thank You or just because, its a lovely way to say I am thinking of you…
