INVERNESS Based Gift Box Service A Whale of a Time has launched a Make Your Own Box (BYOB) service.
A Whale of a Time brings together products from independent companies across the Highlands and Islands, and the new BYOB feature is based on customer feedback since the company launched last year.
The new feature was revealed during a Facebook Live session with Small Business Saturday as part of its UK tour which runs through December 1.
Eilidh Marshall, Co-Director of A Whale of a Time, said: “When we launched A Whale of a Time in December 2020, the idea was to showcase the fantastic products made in the Highlands and Islands by other small businesses. .
“Over the past year, we’ve delivered gift boxes across the country, increased the number of vendors we work with, listened to customer feedback, and observed buying trends in the market.
“The trend towards personalization is still strong and the Build Your Own Box function responds to it.
“So if someone wants to mix things up and send a coloring book with a drink, smells with chocolate, or a box of cookies with a book as a gift, then they absolutely can.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Small Business Saturday tour in good company with so many like-minded people chasing their dreams and trying to start their own businesses.”
A Whale of a Time features products from Inverness, Ross-shire, Shetland, Wick, Moray, Lochaber, Harris, Lewis, Islay and Skye.
Producers involved include Loch Ness Spirits, Inverness Coffee Roasting Co, Ashers and Ablekids Press.
