We are a small family business based in Warrington, Cheshire that creates and sells unique and thoughtful hampers and gift boxes.
From every gift or hamper sold, we donate 15% of our profit to seven Charities. These special charities have and continue to support our family and friends through tough times. Where possible, we brand our hampers and gift boxes in colours to support the charities that we raise funds for.
We offer a fantastic range of unique hampers and gift boxes for sale that we have created for Men, Women, Babies, Children, and Couples for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Christmas, Get Well or simply to say Thank You. All of our hampers and gift boxes are made by hand and include a handwritten card or tag to go with your gift. As well as the hampers, gift boxes, and personalised gifts that we advertise on our website, we also create bespoke hampers for special birthdays and corporate gifts.
The products inside our hampers and gift boxes are of excellent quality and sourced from suppliers locally or within the UK. We research and test all products ourselves, before including them in a Hamper or Gift Box, to ensure they are suitable and continue to exceed our customer’s expectations.
Happiness Wrapped is proud to support the following Charities:
As well as donating a percentage of our profit to charities, we also donate hampers and gift boxes to charities and the local community throughout the year as well as create gift boxes for charities to sell in their shops.
Why Happiness Wrapped?
I first thought of starting a Hamper business in 2017 after searching for a Christmas Hamper with something in it other than food and drink. I did find a few lovely hampers but couldn’t understand why they had so few products in them but cost the earth! This got me thinking about whether there was a gap in the market and if I should start my own hamper and gift box business.
Then, in early 2018 my Mum became very ill and we thought we were going to lose her. So I put my ideas on hold while my Dad and I cared for her. My Mum had already spent much of 2017 in and out of Warrington Hospital and was finally transferred to Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital for a Mitral Valve Replacement.
As it was my Mum’s birthday the day after surgery, my sister and I made her a luxury hamper. We both noticed how the hamper bought a smile to her face and she still says today this is the only thing she remembers about her hospital stay.
The excellent care, dedication, and support we received from Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital (LHCH) is the reason my Mum is still here today. During a visit to LHCH my Dad and I attended a presentation on robotic surgery. It was both fascinating and amazing to see how this worked and how quickly patients recovered from heart surgery. This made me want to give something back to the hospital so I applied to be a Public Governor for Cheshire and was delighted when I was accepted.
This also led to me creating a Mini Pamper Box for the LHCH Charity to sell and deciding on the name Happiness Wrapped.
Then, in November 2018 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. So I had to put Happiness Wrapped on hold again while undergoing treatment.
During my journey, I spent many a moment reflecting on how lucky I was that the cancer had not spread, and most days in tears seeing how ill some of the patients were. Watching others struggle in their fight against cancer really hit home with me as did the care and dedication provided by the wonderful staff at Clatterbridge.
When the last day of my treatment at Clatterbridge finally arrived in April 2019 I made a huge Thank You Easter hamper for the staff. It was lovely to see some of the patients smile when I delivered it and to hear a lady say it looked so professional I should start a hamper business.
As I rang the ‘End of Treatment Bell’, I not only made the decision to pursue Happiness Wrapped but also that the business would donate 15% of gross profit from every hamper and gift box sold to the charities close to our hearts.
UPDATE: In 2022 I spent most of the year caring for my wonderful father after he was diagnosed with MSA (Multiple System Atrophy). It took 4 years to find a diagnosis because MSA is such a rare and progressive disease that has no cure. It was my absolute pleasure to have been able to look after my Dad and why Happiness Wrapped supports The Multiple System Atrophy Trust Charity. I miss him every day, and more so when I create a new hamper because he always gave me the thumbs up.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
I hope you are able to find a beautiful hamper at Happiness Wrapped that will spread a little happiness and raise money for charity at the same time.
