The Cara Giftbox: For a Beloved Friend on Valentine’s Day

3 (2).png

Friends are irreplaceable. They are patient, kind, forgiving, and encouraging. There are countless songs that are written, numerous quotes that are cited, and familiar Proverbs referenced that address friendship. The messages remain the same throughout all genres; that a friend is the greatest example of love.

This Valentine’s Day, I partnered with Curate Chicago, a modern retail, and gifting company based in Chicago to create a handmade gift that was ideal for the special and beloved friend in our own lives. We went through a careful assortment of home and lifestyle goods and decided on several items that we knew would make the perfectly cohesive gift set. Our collaboration was filled with fun photo shoots, brainstorming, and plenty of Pinterest inspiration. And together, we created the Cara gift box.

Cara is the friend who embodies all that love is within a friendship. As her name implies, she is cherished and dear to the heart. She is a natural beauty who appreciates the little things in life. She is always finding new DIY projects, and will never let you leave her home without a piece of her latest homemade dessert. The Cara box is handcrafted for the friend who openly embraces others with an open heart, soul, and mind.

Cara Gift Box includes- The Year of Cozy: 125 Recipes, Crafts, & Other Homemade Adventures by Adrianna Adarme, Brooklyn Candle Studio Lavender Mason Jar Candle, Rifle Paper Co. Notepad, Illume Grapefruit Oleander Demi Perfume Roller
