About The Little Box Company

Welcome to The Little Box Company, the leading online gift shop in South Africa. Whether you are looking for corporate gift box ideas, or something special for a friend or family member, we specialise in unique gifting for every occasion! Established in 2003, the driving force behind The Little Box Company has always been to supply bespoke, gorgeous, and unique products to the people of South Africa. We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect gift, or to deliver it, which is why we do what we do.

As one of the oldest gifting companies in South Africa, we offer efficient, effective, reliable, and trusted services, as well as a safe and secure online shopping experience. Thanks to our ecommerce store, you can browse our products in the comfort of your own home, whenever you find the time to do so. Gifting has never been easier! What makes us different from other gifting companies is the fact that we hand make our wooden boxes on our premises. The wooden boxes we use for our gift boxes are not only sustainable and reusable, but they are also more than a gift box. They can be used for years to come, and they make a beautiful keepsake box.

At The Little Box Company, we have a bespoke range of gift boxes, all of which are curated with care. Our lovely gift boxes are filled with everything from delicious edible goodies and bath treats to several gourmet products and adorable new-born baby goodies. If you find that you are still struggling to find what you are looking for, The Little Box Company’s team will go the extra mile to help you put together something that won’t break the bank or cost you a limb. Our promise is to supply you with the most impressive, yet affordable gifts.

How are the boxes presented?

Everyone appreciates a beautifully wrapped gift, but this is not always possible when ordering through just any courier company. When you order from The Little Box Company, we ensure that your gift is not only wrapped to perfection, but that it is also protected throughout the entire shipping process, thanks to our wooden boxes. As a full-service gifting company, we handle all aspects of gifting, from personal gifts to corporate gifts and gifting for events.

In terms of the physical presentation of our gift boxes, our boxes are hand-made on our premises, and customers have the ability to choose between black, raw, pink, blue, grey, and white wood. Every gift is secured with a Petersham ribbon and a gift tag. Since we are a small company, we give personalised attention to all our clients, and all our orders. On client request, we will also hand write your message for you on the gift tag that will be attached to the ribbon on the gift box.


New Services Offered

The Little Box Company now offers full colour custom print on wooden boxes, this is a recent addition to our services.  We can also do a single colour printed satin ribbon to add to the customisation of your corporate or personal gifting. Another addition is a full colour small batch custom corrugated carton that we can print for smaller batches or corporates. 

Is there a deadline for orders?

At The Little Box Company, we do not have a specific deadline for any major events. However, we do recommend that you order your gifts in advance, with time to spare, to avoid any disappointments. Whether for year-end corporate gifts, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any other celebratory period, there is an increase in traffic, as everyone tries to get gifts for staff, family, friends, and clients. Certain disappointments, such as low stock, no stock, or late deliveries are bound to happen. Therefore, the earlier you start, the better! Not only can you guarantee that you will have the gifts in time, but you also give yourself far more time to plan and carefully go through our various gifting options.
