Box it Up with These Personalized Gifts

Personalized gifts without all the hassle, thanks to two local companies

Two Minnesota companies are thinking inside the box when it comes to weddings. Jade Taylor Market and Minny & Paul curate special gift boxes perfect for bridesmaids and brides-to-be.

Jade Schantzen started her company, Jade Taylor Market, because she couldn’t find what she wanted when she was a bride. “Shortly after becoming engaged, I couldn’t wait to ask my bridesmaids to be a part of my special day. I spent a crazy amount of time searching on Pinterest and numerous websites for a ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ gift but wasn’t able to find exactly what I was looking for. Fed up with searching and running out of time, I decided to create custom gift boxes for each of my bridesmaids, and they absolutely loved them!”

Her boxes—pre-selected or custom-made—feature fun, practical products like handmade bath bombs, kimono-style robes and stemless champagne flutes. For a personal touch, each box comes with a handwritten letter.

Laura Waldman started Minny & Paul to showcase all of the amazing products made right here in Minnesota. Her boxes come loaded with local crafts, including chocolates, jewelry, leather goods and candles. They’re especially popular for bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts, but Minny & Paul can also create smaller boxes or canvas totes for favors.

“There are so many incredible products made here in Minnesota,” Waldman says. “The gift boxes are a great way to show off Minnesota and leave a unique and lasting impression.” Jade Taylor Market, Minny & Paul,
