Every holiday season, our team comes together to create a custom handcrafted gift to honor our friends and partners who continue to inspire us and drive us forward into the new year. This year, we created a series of hand-poured candles and a gourmet blend of hot cocoa to bring in the New Year.

Our candles were hand-poured, in-house, using an all natural black soy wax infused with a blend of cedarwood, patchouli, black pepper, and pimento berry essential oils. We poured each candle inside a frosted glass with a custom matte black foil print. Then placed each candle inside a telescoping two-piece box, wrapped in a classic black linen with white foil print.

Our gourmet hot cocoa blend, was packaged inside of a custom matte black tin with white foil print, alongside a custom BASIC mug, and a nib of Godiva Liquor, to keep cozy through the holiday season.

Each care package contained a black-on-black holiday card with a black gloss foil, duplexed with handwritten script on the front and a personalized greeting on the back.
