BlissBox is a small female owned company who are committed to not only helping fellow women but also helping small business across the UK to prosper by selecting items and services produced by them where I can. This means that BlissBoxers will receive a range of truly unique and specially crafted gifts to enjoy knowing that thought, hard work and care has gone into the making of each item.
Lets meet the Brands in this month's BlissBox...
Cartofleur. Cartofleur is a pressed flower business, run by Emilie Bodin from her home studio in London. Born in France, Emilie grew up in a loving family of artists in the heart of the French Alps. She learnt the pressed flower technique from watching her mum from a young age. Fourteen years ago, Emilie came to England to pursue a career in the hospitality industry and it is after having her first child that she decided to start her own business. She made her first sales at a local crafts market in London and opened her online store on Etsy. Emilie creates a variety of handmade products including Pressed flower bookmarks and Glass pressed flower frames.
The Giggle Gift Company. Handmade signs, plaques and personalised gifts. The Giggle Gift Company is a local Yorkshire based company and whilst they have a large range of plaques and phrases available, they are happy to make a plaque that’s bespoke for you. (No matter how rude!)
You can order your bespoke signs, plaques and personalised gifts in the customised section of their online shop. Or better still contact them!

Petit Pithivier. "Hello, I’m Julia. I’m 24 and I’m a trained pastry chef; patisserie is my passion. I’ve never worked in another industry and began cooking at an early age. I recall eating the best mashed potatoes at a fine dining establishment somewhere in Scotland and thinking ‘This is amazing, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life’. I want my customers to feel the same joy and comfort that I felt that day, when eating my food.
I now run my Holloway-based small business making high-quality artisan confections and patisserie from scratch, in my licensed home kitchen. Petit Pithivier was born and has grown over the first year in ways I couldn't have imagined. I couldn't be more grateful to my customers as it wouldn't be a business without you. THANK YOU!"
Finally, Copper Coffee Roasters.
Our Idea... “When are we buying a coffee roaster?” This was a fairly regular conversation that we had over our working careers, but it took us until 2020 to bring this plan into action. We’d been working in the coffee industry for many years, and we finally decided to bite the bullet and fight for our dream. You might think we’re crazy, and maybe we are, but we love great coffee and we want to share that with all of you! We’re based at Bramley Hedge Farm in Surrey, where we’ve installed our brand-new Toper roaster in what was many years ago a former livestock barn. It’s from here we’ll be roasting a range of speciality arabica coffee sourced from different countries around the world. We take great care in sourcing and selecting the best coffee beans we can find, and we hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
