The first of its kind on Anguilla, The Gift Box is part of the expanding shopping scene on the island!
With vibrant blue accents popping off the pristine white building, you cannot help but notice this addition on the main road, just before the ever popular Roti Hut.
The vibrant outside of the building can only be outmatched by the welcoming smile of the owner, Olivia Lake.
Meet Olivia Lake
A full time teacher, Olivia enjoyed creating and selling fruit bouquets and chocolate covered strawberry arrangements out of her home. These wonderful creations have been bringing happiness to others since December of 2010. After more than 5 years of balancing two careers, Olivia made the leap from teacher to full time business owner of The Gift Box.
With the help of her husband and business partner, Marlon, her dream was realized in just a few short months.
Opening their doors on December 10, 2016, clients have been delighted by the variety of high quality items and amazing gift baskets that Olivia and her team are passionately creating.
The Gift Box provides a solution for all your gifting needs from babies and birthdays to anniversaries and welcome baskets. You can even get a basket for the dog!
Here's what she has in store for you...
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
A Beautiful Way to Say "Happy Valentine's Day"
A Basket For BBQ Lovers
With her "Originals" and "Baskets For Occasions" flying off the shelf, Olivia has expanded her offerings.
If you didn’t find exactly what you are looking for, just ask Olivia.
With 24 hour notice, The Gift Box team is happy to design the perfect gourmet basket or arrangement.
They can even personalize your basket.
Here is one example Olivia shared with me as we chatted...
Olivia’s face lit up as she described a recent request from a guest celebrating her anniversary on Anguilla.
Excited to express her love in a unique way, she requested that Olivia create a basket full of nuts.
With an arrangement of almonds, cashews, pistachios, macadamias, peanuts, walnuts, pecans and dried fruits (some covered in chocolate), a perfect basket was created and delivered with the message… "I’m Still Nuts About You."
A Gift Basket For The Girls
As Olivia shared this experience with me, I looked around her office which doubles as a stock room and took in all the possibilities. They seemed to be endless.
Baskets can be made with a vast array of gourmet cheese and cracker pairings, wine, champagne, pretzels, chocolates, cookies, locally-made products and inspirational quotes on glass cutting boards, mugs and plaques.
I can’t wait to make my own!
