Hello, it’s nice to meet you.
We are a small family business based in Warrington, Cheshire, that creates and sells unique and thoughtful hampers and gift boxes. We donate 15% of our gross profit to six Charities from every gift that we sell. Each hamper and gift box is branded in colours to support the charities we raise funds for wherever possible.
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, Christenings, Weddings, Christmas, Get Well or simply to say Thank You. We create all of our own non-personalised hampers and gift boxes and make them by hand. As well as the hampers and gift boxes advertised on our website we also take requests for bespoke hampers.
The products that we include in our hampers and gift boxes are of good quality and sourced from suppliers locally or within the UK. We research and test every product ourselves to ensure they are suitable for our customers before they go into a Hamper or Gift Box and are sold.
The six charities that we support are close to our hearts and have supported our family and friends over a number of years. They are:
As well as donating a portion of our profit 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 shop.
Why Happiness Wrapped?
I first thought of starting a Hamper business, in 2017, after searching for a Christmas gift that contained something other than food and alcohol. I found some lovely hampers but couldn’t understand why they contained so few products yet cost the earth! This got me thinking about whether there was a gap in the market, and if I should start a 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 any ideas of starting a hamper business on hold while my Dad and I cared for her. She had already spent much of 2017 in and out of Warrington Hospital and was transferred to Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital for a Mitral Valve Replacement in May.
As it was my Mum’s birthday the day after her surgery my sister and I made a luxury hamper for her. We couldn’t help but notice how it made her smile and she still says this is the only thing she remembers about her hospital stay.
The excellent care, dedication and support received from Warrington Hospital and Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital (LHCH) is the reason my Mum is still with us and how our family coped through such a tough time.
After seeing what an excellent and dedicated hospital LHCH was, and attending a presentation on robotic surgery during one of my many visits, I applied to be a Public Governor for Cheshire on a voluntary basis and was delighted when I was accepted.
This also led to me thinking about creating a Mini Pamper Box for the LHCH Charity to sell and deciding on the name Happiness Wrapped.
Unfortunately, shortly after registering Happiness Wrapped in November 2018, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. So I put the business on hold again whilst undergoing treatment at Warrington & Halton Hospitals and the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
During this time, I spent many a moment reflecting on how lucky I was that my cancer had not spread and most days in tears, after 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.
So, 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 to say a big thank you to them. It was lovely to see some of the patients smile when I delivered it and to hear someone 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 that the business would also donate 15% gross profit to charity from every hamper and gift box sold.
Thank you for reading my story.
I hope you are able to find a beautiful hamper or gift box at Happiness Wrapped that will spread a little happiness and raise money for charity at the same time.
