Our gift boxes have so many uses – as a memory box; to store special treasures and items easily misplaced; to present a gift card or check for a special occasion or to thank our essential workers; or a unique gift to acknowledge the students, teachers and the adults at home who are meeting the challenges of virtual learning.
