Gifting is a culture that cements how we relate to those close to us. Consumer goods stores have innovated various gifting methods and dessert boxes happen to be one of them.
If you love baking and you have a passion for entrepreneurship, starting a dessert boxes store can be a highly rewarding venture.
Here are some ideas for your inspiration.
Here are some real life success stories of starting a dessert boxes store:
1. Dessert Boxes ($1.8M/year)
Samantha Khater (from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) started Dessert Boxes over 5 years ago.
Hey, I’m Samantha, one of the three founders of DessertBoxes.com.au - an online Dessert Gift Giving store which is here to innovate and disrupt the gift giving industry! We ship these gift boxes all around Sydney & Melbourne. Everything is made fresh every morning and delivered to the recipient by 3pm that day.
We launched just last Valentines Day, and in our first year, have turned over more than one million in sales and now have a presence in Sydney & Melbourne.
2. Dick At Your Door ($1.5M/year)
Adam Hascall (from California, USA) started Dick At Your Door over 7 years ago.
My name is Adam Elliot, and I started Dick At Your Door, an e-commerce shop for people who like to gift pranks, gags, and funny novelties to their friends and family.
Yes, you read that correctly... Dick At Your Door sells chocolate penises you can send as a fun prank to friends and family.
3. Really Luxe ($24K/year)
Valentina (from Brantford, ON, Canada) started Really Luxe about 2 years ago.
Hello! I’m Valentina, the founder, and CEO of Really Luxe. I love chocolates (especially Godiva) and anything gold and shiny!
We have been in business since September 2020, so we are still a new brand. Most of our customers reside in the province of Ontario, with 78% of our orders being local delivery orders. The remaining percentage is ordered that we ship throughout Canada.
