One gift, 7 small MN business owners dreams supported.

Your Minny & Paul holiday gift basket brightens not only your recipients' day but also the artisan's whose dream you're supporting. We pride ourselves on our extensive network of small-batch makers, quality products, and stellar packing team. We source exclusively from small, independently-owned businesses and test every product before it makes its way into any gift box. We also design gift baskets featuring BIPOC-owned, AAPI-owned, women-owned, and businesses that give back. Our vendor roster of over 200 small businesses (and growing) allows us to craft the perfect gift for your specific occasion. Whether your gift basket is filled with tasty treats or savory snacks, when you gift with Minny & Paul, you know that every product is made in small batches to the highest quality standards.

Our Experience

Whatever your seasonal gifting initiative, Minny & Paul has the expertise to bring it to life. Since 2016, we have been living and breathing gift-giving. What started in a single room is now operating out of a 7,500-square-foot warehouse in Minneapolis. This allows us to control the experience from start to finish for the highest level of care.

We have worked on gifting initiatives big and small with clients across all industries, including Target, General Mills, Best Buy, Allianz, Xfinity, Squarespace, AT&T, and many more. Our gift baskets are filled with gourmet food, sweet treats, handcrafted chocolate bars, and artisanal leave behinds that your recipients will enjoy using in their homes every day. Whether you're looking for gifts for virtual holiday parties, employee recognition, or client appreciation, we've got you covered. Our seasonal gifts are perfect for any celebration.

Tastefully Branded Holiday Gift Baskets

With employee and event gifts this season, we embrace company logos and customization. For gifting to clients however, we recommend quality products with minimal use of logos on products. Instead, going heavy on branding the packaging is a win for client gifts. Whatever your branding goals, working with Minny & Paul means you have access to all the best products and packaging you will be proud to put your name on.

We offer 3 month, 6 month and 12 month contracts. Reach out to hello@minnyandpaul.com to learn more!

How are your gift boxes different than the traditional gourmet gift baskets I see from Harry & David?+-

We love a wine gift basket or fresh fruit gift tower like the rest of them, but to break through the noise - especially during the holiday season - a Minny & Paul corporate gift will stand out. Not only because everything inside the gift is from small makers you can feel proud to support, but because the packaging is elevated and eco-friendly. Clients have seen it all, they are looking for something unique, something that doesn't feel generic that will truly make them feel appreciated.

Do you ship gifts internationally?+-

Yes indeed!

Can I leverage your studio pick up for larger gifts/volume gifting or corporate gift baskets?+-

Yes, indeed! If you are local to the Twin Cities continue on ;) Orders of 12 or fewer gifts will be available for studio pick up Monday-Friday from 9:30 AM-4:30 PM. Allow two business days for pick up. For example, if you place the order on Monday, your gift will be ready by 9:30 AM on Wednesday (but possibly sooner!). You will receive an email once it is ready. Orders with more than 12 units are subject to a one-week minimum turnaround. A team member will contact you via email or phone should your business gift baskets need additional time for processing.

Does the title of the gift box or gift basket go anywhere on or in the box?+-

If you are shopping for business gifts from our online shop, the gift box name is included on the packing slip.

Do you include receipts in the packaging?+-

No way! We don't want to spoil the gift of course. As the gift giver, you will receive an email confirmation for orders placed online that can serve as a receipt. If you need something additional, please email us at hello@minnyandpaul.com. For business and custom gifts, you will have a copy of the invoice.

Can I send gift baskets for clients to multiple addresses?+-

Absolutely! If you are using our online shop, our "Multi Ship" tool at checkout makes it easy to send multiple gifts to various addresses.
