It’s a fact that choosing a gift for someone can be incredibly difficult, especially if you don’t know what they want or what sort of things they would like.

Michelle Warren had this exact struggle when she had the idea to start Holabox.

Her grandmother had been ill in hospital, and Michelle had wanted to send her a gift, but had been unable to find a suitable one.

“It was a culmination of not being able to find something to send my sick grandma and being able to contact a business to have that custom ability,” Michelle said.

She had also been thinking about what lights her up and was finding herself when she decided to chase her creative dream.

“Holabox is all about sending happiness and letting people know they’re thought about.”

Michelle also described Holabox’s gifts as personal gestures for the people who don’t want to send flowers.

Holabox covers many events and occasions, ranging from birthdays, weddings, and baby showers to big days such as Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and Valentines Day, so you’re sure to find the perfect gift no matter what.

Each product that comes from Michelle is an Australian small business product, including homewares, wines, chocolates, and nuts and more.

There’s a range of beautiful gift boxes on Holabox’s website or you can get in touch with Michelle and make a custom box suited to your needs.

Michelle also does gift boxes for corporate customers, which not only helps her own business but supports other local businesses as well.

Holabox fills a niche in the Wide Bay industry that we didn’t even know we had, and Michelle loves it, even if it’s “chaotic” at times.

“So many people have sent so many lovely messages.”

If you need a gift for a special occasion, or just want to let someone know you’re in their thoughts, check out Holabox on Facebook or at their website. You’re guaranteed to find the perfect gift.
