Even the box itself supports a small business!

the heart

Gifts are meant to invoke joy and well-being, and we rally behind those who use their own gifts to bless others. These boxes promote creative expression. intentionality and community. To pay it even more forward, a portion from all sales go to City of Refuge in Sacramento.

On May 6th, 2017, we launched a Kickstarter campaign that was fully funded by 138 generous backers, to whom we are forever grateful!

Above all, this project was meant to honor the life of our daughter Norah. Her fifteen minutes in this world had an incredible impact on our lives. Remembering her life, and death, as well as the invaluable gifts that we received from our creative community that brought so much healing, is the motivation to make this business a success. We hope in turn that it blesses others as much as it's blessed our family.

about jillian

Jillian lives in Fair Oaks, CA, a small city 20 minutes outside of Sacramento, with her husband and 3 daughters. Her family is very much involved in this business - there are little hands that help put together these gift boxes when orders come in!

Jillian's first love was photography, and she's thrilled that she can carry it over into Maven Market for other small businesses needing photos (learn more).

When she's not curating gorgeous gifts for you, you can find her decorating her home, volunteering for a local non-profit, spending time with her family and close friends, and searching for the next best brunch spot!
