A fantastic start to 2015 by winning #SBS at the beginning of February! I’m overwhelmed by the warm welcome and so happy to be a part of the #SBSFamily.
I have been self employed for over 10 years and still start the day with a twinge of excitement because I never know what opportunities will come my way!
I launched Hug Box in April 2013 as I thought I saw a gap in the market for an affordable heartfelt gift which would make people smile :-)
A Hug Box is more than just a personalised gift; its a NEW and UNIQUE way of letting someone know you are thinking about them. It all started with the ‘Original Hug Box’ which is filled with 3 layers of Sweets, Treats and Chocolates however over the past year I have expanded the Hug Box range to include Hug Boxes for Pets and Hug Boxes which have soft toys such as Teddy Bears and Monkeys.
One of the proudest and most exiting business days i've had so far is the day the first pallet of ‘Printed’ Hug Boxes arrived. Previously each Hug Box had been hand stencilled (front and back) by me!
Use Social Media: It always amazes me how many small businesses don’t use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn etc to freely promote themselves.
