The Pressie Box






Beautifully stylish Gift Boxes, Hampers & Gifts for all occasions that will be sure to leave a lasting impression!

I would love to introduce you to Rachael



Beginning...

I created The Pressie Box in August 2010. Earlier in the year I had decided (after the birth of my third son) not to return to my job of 10 years as a Financial Manager. I like to keep super busy (that's an understatement!), so I went in search of a project to give me something other than housework and being a parent to focus on. In previous jobs I was always the one who organised the leaving gifts, and gifts for new babies etc, so it seemed natural to head in that direction. 





Naming...

My husband and I spent hours trying to think up a name. The Pressie Box just kind of came about, we were wanting a play on words, we primarily sell Gift BOXES and of course Gifts are PRESSIES hence The Pressie Box was born :)





Keep Calm And...



In 3 words...
 
Quality - Stylish - Personalised (Service and Hampers!)


Daily...

Good question! I currently work another job also, and we now have FOUR children so we are constantly juggling our schedule! Once I have the kids off to school my two little helpers (Master 4 - when he isn't at Kindy, and Miss 18months 'help' me assemble and dispatch our orders for the day. I then fit in a bit of ordering, replying to customer queries and general office work before I head off to my other (temporary) job at Midday. Once home it’s a mad rush to have dinner, do homework and get kids off to bed before I catch up on anything, and prepare any orders that need to be sent first thing, I always find time to have a cuppa and watch a bit of TV before I fall into bed!





Owning...

I love that I can fit it in with the needs of my family! I love how attached I get to my customers, I have made some life long friends this way - gosh that makes me sound like a stalker hehe! 



Advice...

Do it! Seriously, make a plan - keeping in mind plans ALWAYS change! Never underestimate the power of one small idea. Most huge companies started in a spare bedroom or a back room in their garage and now look where they are! They all started with one small idea. Also, hook into a good mentor if you can.





Relax...


In the evenings, I always take the time to chill out in front of the TV before going to bed. When I can, I like to go for a walk. I love pampering, and would just about give my right arm to have a decent pedicure right now!




From here...

We are just about to build a wee studio in our backyard. I can't wait to have my own space - dedicated to our growing business. We are also about to expand, and very soon I will have my own assistant to help during our busy times. Hubby, my dear Mum and other family members will still be roped in to attend Markets and to help during our peak season :)
