So...How Do We Actually Help You Do That?
To make this happen, you need a specialized team of corporate gift basket experts who understand your target market and will help you navigate your gifting initiative from start to finish. Whatever your marketing objectives, Minny & Paul has the expertise to help you meet your business goals with ease and efficiency.
For the past six years, we have been living and breathing corporate gift baskets. In 2016, our founder Laura Roos launched Minny & Paul out of her duplex. What started in a single room is now operating out of a 7,500-square-foot warehouse. Thanks to these years of experience, we've developed the expertise to make your gifting initiative as high impact as possible. We have worked with clients across all industries, including General Mills, Best Buy, The Smithsonian, Target, the NCAA, Squarespace, and many more.
One Gift, 7 Small Business Owners' Dreams Supported
We are proud to source exclusively from small, independently owned businesses. This means your single gift not only brightens your potential client's day, but also the artisan’s whose dream you’re supporting. We have been sourcing products from small brands for six years, and we understand the complexities (and huge benefits) of supporting indie makers with high-volume gifting. We've proven that partnering with small businesses is a win-win for everyone. Our vendor roster of more than 200 small businesses (and growing) allows us to craft the perfect gift for your specific needs every time.
How It Works
We have three easy ways to send corporate gifts with us:
1. Online shop: Leverage our over 30 pre-designed gifts with no minimums. Order on-demand as needed and create an account with us to track and organize all of your orders. Each gift includes a complimentary handwritten note. Once you place the order online, your gift will ship within 1-3 business days.
2. Online Shop with Branded Touch: With at least 25 units, this option allows you to add branding packaging to our top selling pre-designed gifts. You can select from any online shop gift box and add your logo to various packaging elements. This option includes a complimentary branded card and dedicated project manager. Once any design elements are approved, your gifts will be ready in 2-3 weeks. For the Online Shop with Branded Touch option, get started here by filling out this form.
3. Fully Custom Order: This is our highest-touch level of gifting. If you want to include branding on products with specific colors or themes in mind, this is the right path for you. We have a $4,000 project minimum. This includes a completely custom gift design with various options and iterations as well as a dedicated project manager. Once any design elements are approved, your gifts will be ready in 2-5 weeks. For the Fully Custom option, get started here by filling out this form.

We offer 3 month, 6 month and 12 month contracts. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 - 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 that will truly make them feel appreciated.
Do you ship gifts internationally?+-
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-Thursday 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 email@example.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. If you are ordering more than 25 units with our Online Shop with Branded Touch option, we will email you a .csv file to use as a template for your addresses. We will also provide you with the address template for Fully Custom orders. If you have any questions, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What happens to a delivery when the recipient isn't there to receive it?+-
If the recipient is not available to receive their delivery, the gift will be left at the delivery location. Minny & Paul cannot be held liable for theft or damage of the gift, if the intended recipient is unavailable to receive their delivery.
