I'm Lauren (or Lo as my friends call me) and the creator of Box + Bow Gifting Studio. After becoming a new mom to our little love, Avery, I left my corporate job in the tech industry to be a full time stay-at-home mom. I needed a creative outlet that allowed me to raise my daughter while pursuing my dream of owning a small business.
With a baby on one hip and my ribbon scissors in the other, I curated gifts from the pool table top in our home for the first two years, until we were bursting out the seams and buried in shred...literally. In April of 2017, we took the plunge and opened our own studio in Brentwood, Northern California,
We fulfilled gifts in our little creative space for nearly a year and a half until my husband and I took another big plunge and moved our family from CA to NC (yep, a cross country move!). We closed up shop and brought the business back home. But this move brings another exciting change, as we now are shipping from both sides of the country, thanks to our Office Manager and Calligrapher, Chelsea, who will continue to fulfill select orders from the West Coast!
I am humbled (and honestly, still pinching myself) to look back and see how this little "side hobby" has grown since its start in early 2015. Both Chelsea and I can't thank you all for supporting our passion for gifting. We truly hope our boxes will become a treasured gift to you and those you love!!
