TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE BLOG
I was recently gifted The Gift Refinery’s Fall Box and I’ve been dying to share with you all. Not only am I totally in love with this box, but I’m also head-over-heels that The Gift Refinery is a Canadian company. If it could even get any better (it does), they also partner with Canadian artisans and small businesses. So, not only are you supporting an amazing Canadian brand, but you’re also supporting budding entrepreneurs.
The Gift Refinery
The Gift Refinery started in 2018 as a place to promote Canadian artisans while offering unique gifts that are loved by family and friends. They search for all of the best that Canada has to offer and stuff inside an amazing box that is delivered straight to your door.
Besides my love for all things Canadian, I really like that The Gift Refinery offers seasonal subscription boxes. Each season (four times a year), you will receive a box filled to the brim with up to 10 luxurious lifestyle products. They state that one of their missions is to find the best Canadian brands that “you may not know about yet but will come to realize you cannot live without”. I can now attest to the fact that this is true!
If you want to try one of these incredible boxes, you don’t even have to commit to a subscription (though you should). Each season, a limited number of one-time purchase boxes are available. The #TGRHelloFall One Time Box Purchase is the box I was recently gifted and the contents are to die for!
