About the NB Box

Hi, I'm Ingrid and I love supporting small businesses. In the summer of 2017 I started a blog that profiles women entrepreneurs and creatives in New Brunswick. This led me to discover so many amazing product based businesses in our province that I had never even heard of. It wasn't long before I was buying and sharing products with all my family and friends.

In May of 2018, in preparation for my sister's baby shower, I decided I wanted to make her a gift completely filled with locally made products. I started to contact different businesses from around the province and had to have them mail me their goods, or meet me to arrange pickup. I was driving all over to pick up these amazing high quality products, and it occurred to me - as I was waiting to get some bath bombs in the McDonald's parking lot - that if I was wanting an easier way to buy locally made gifts, then other people were as well.

Products displayed on a table at a farmer's market. The table has a white cloth on it and there are candles and bath bombs in the frame.

Within a month, the NB Box was born. We started with only 7 products and one gift box option, and we have grown steadily ever since. The NB Box is about more than just great gifts. We love supporting makers and creatives in our communities and we have a lot of pride in the diverse and unique products they make. I want to discover everything we have to offer here, and share that with you. 

In April of 2021, we expanded once again and started bringing in products from all over Atlantic Canada with Rising Tide Gifts.

Each box is carefully curated and filled with the best locally made products and lovingly packed in our Saint John warehouse. Perfect for treating yourself or gifting to a loved one.
