Dee Bushrod is the driving force behind Box of Sunshine – a place where unique gifts and creativity combine.
Back in 2016, when her friend experienced a life-changing diagnosis, Dee saw firsthand how people wanted to reach out and show their love and support.
Flowers started arriving at her friends home and it became obvious that flowers, although beautiful, are not always the best choice to send someone who is sick.
At a time when her friend should have been resting and healing, she would be interrupted by knocks at the door and then was forced to 'do'something with the flowers - find a vase, cut them down, dispose of packaging and then within a week, they would be thrown away.
Dee saw the need for letterbox sized gift boxes filled with unique and meaningful gifts and that marked the humble beginnings of Faith, Hope and Sunshine.
It was only after speaking with others that Dee recognised that there are many times - illness, new baby, the struggle with depression/anxiety that a gift through the letterbox, without any knock at the door - would be beneficial.
Whether you need some inspiration to make your own gifts or a place to buy a unique gift to send - Box of Sunshine gives you a place to get inspired.
