Everything you need to know about Hanson & Hopewell, and their gorgeous luxury gift boxes!
My, oh my, are we in love. If you’ve ever struggled to find a stylish but unique engagement, hen do or wedding gift for the beloved bride-to-be in your life, then look no further. Hanson & Hopewell are on hand with their luxury gift boxes, filled with all the quintessential items a bride might need in the build up to her big day. We spoke to the H&H team to find out more about what they have to offer.
How did you come up with the idea of Hanson & Hopewell’s luxury gift boxes?
“What we love most about weddings is enjoying all the little moments that lead-up to the big day. However, many people find the gifting part tricky. When our friends got engaged we couldn’t find anything meaningful and personal on the high street. We wanted something that was beautiful, thoughtful and luxurious to celebrate the occasion, but that would also keep it’s sparkle long past the wedding day. That’s why we launched Hanson & Hopewell, to provide gifts that are stylish and personal, but that also tell a unique story.”
What kind of amazing products can a bride expect to see inside your gift boxes?
“We’ve uncovered hidden gems from the best independent makers in the UK that will help the wedding party celebrate all of the key occasions in their bride’s wedding journey, including engagement gifts, hen party presents and wedding boxes for the morning of the big day.
We create and curate incredible gifts, from custom designed wedding journals, to handmade organic beauty products, to gorgeous confetti pops filled with pure Shropshire Petals. It’s a great way to give your bride all the little luxuries she needs in the lead-up to her big day, as well as freeing her up to solve all those pre-wedding jitters!”
Do your products only cater to the Bride-to-be?
“For us, it’s all about celebrating our closest relationships with the ones we love, during the most magical moments of their lives. As well as our bridal gift boxes, we also help the bride find the perfect gifts for her wedding party, from that all important gift for the groom on the wedding morning, to a special something for her mum who’s helped with all the planning. We’re also going to be launching bridesmaid proposal and thank you boxes very soon, so watch this space!”
What is your favourite aspect about the luxury gift boxes that you sell?
“For us, it’s all about that wow moment when you receive a gift. That thought that your friends and family just ‘get you’ and your current situation. One of our favourite gift boxes is Sparkler, for the bride to be in your life who has been driving you crazy with her engagement ring obsession. If she’s always polishing it and sharing endless ring selfies on social media, she’ll love this particular gift box. Our sparkler engagement gift box includes an organic skin balm and organic vanilla cuticle oil to ensure that left hand is kept Instagram ready, as well as a professional ring cleaning kit and a gorgeous handmade ring dish to keep that sparkler safe. We’re really keen to tap into the excitement of a bride’s wedding journey, so we strive to get that feeling right.”
Can customers personalise their gift boxes?
“Yes, all of our wedding gift boxes can be personalised. We also gift wrap each box as standard, and can include a personal message on our custom-designed greetings cards. We’re pretty flexible and work on bespoke requests all the time, so simply get in touch to see how we can help.”
If you were receiving one of your gift boxes, which would you love to get?
“Our favourite at the moment is one of our new boxes, ‘Wedmin ‘n’ Chill, which is perfect for the bride who feels like Wedmin is taking over her life! This gift box is full of luxury award-winning organic beauty products, handpicked from the best independent British makers and featured in the likes of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and InStyle magazine. The box includes a luxury bath oil filled with rose petals and a gorgeous satin and velvet printed eye-mask, making this bridal gift box perfect as a gift for the hen party or in the run-up to her big day.”
What occasion would be best to give a Bride one of your luxury gift boxes?
“We want to help and celebrate the bride across all aspects of her wedding journey, from her exciting engagement surprise, to saying goodbye to the single life at her hen party, all the way to the morning of her wedding. We think each of our boxes are perfect for those occasions. What surprised us most is that a lot of grooms purchase our Pamper gift box for their wife-to-be, to treat her in the months before her wedding day, which has really melted our hearts! We’ve also seen the bride get our ready to buy boxes as a treat for herself, to help her through those particularly stressful moments.”
Lastly, what future plans do you have for Hanson & Hopewell that we can look forward to?
“We’re super excited for the next few months as we’re starting to innovate new products and gifts. We’re going to be looking at each wedding party member so we can help them with their gifting options. Plus, we’ll be offering more gifting consulting and will be looking to start helping our brides in a holistic way, too. Exciting times ahead!”
