Here are some real life success stories of starting a gift box business:

1. Batch ($1.8M/year)

Sam Davidson, the co-founder and CEO of Batch, and his co-founders came up with the idea for their business during a conversation about the lack of a one-stop shop for small-batch, handmade gifts in Nashville. They decided to start with a subscription box concept called Batch, offering four Nashville-made items each month. Their goal was to reach 200 monthly subscribers, but they exceeded expectations by hitting that mark in their first month and saw sales increase to 1,000 by month three.

After starting an event planning business and finding success with balloon installations, Jamie pivoted to e-commerce in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic halted in-person events. She launched the Virtual Party Box and shifted her focus to celebratory party boxes, listening to customer feedback to grow her inventory and improve her website.
