Pre-orders for the Winter Happy Box will begin October 15th and remain open for ordering until November 15th.  This gives our artisans the opportunity to ensure they have time to fulfill the orders.  Shipping of the winter box will happen on or around December 01.

The Happy Artisan Gift Box is a small batch, hand curated, gift box for people who love beautifully made artisan goods, crafted by hand in small towns across Canada.

It connects the happiness of creating beautiful things with the happiness of receiving them.  Every box is a surprise. The Happy Artisan Gift Box is a curated seasonal gift box. Your box will be a surprise each time and will include quality goods from 5-8 items.  The box supports individual makers and puts money back into families and communities. The items range from home goods to natural bath and body products, to jewellery and art, to gourmet food and other unique items. There is a focus on products that are consumable and environmentally responsible, and packaging is kept to a minimum for all boxes.

The Happy Artisan Gift Box combines the delight of a surprise gift with the benefits of shopping locally and the convenience of shopping online. Bonus items are occasionally made available to add on to your box.

  • Winter box available for pre-order October 15, 2021

Hi I’m Wanda, I came up with the idea to create The Happy Artisan Gift Box. I knew I couldn’t do this alone so I  recruited some very talented artisans to help me curate this small batch mystery gift box. I am so HAPPY and thrilled to be collaborating with these talented Artisans – bios are listed below.

I am also the owner of A Wandaful Thing. I consider myself to be a multi-passionate creative.  I always need to be learning or creating something new. If you want to know the whole story behind this shop and the blog, be sure to check out the Quick Links at the bottom of this page.
