Happy Box is Growing!

We are an e-commerce curated gift box company, featured in Brit+Co, OprahMag.com, BRIDES, and more. Family owned, Happy Store believes that giving the perfect gift should be as happy of an experience as receiving one. We hope to deliver a little more “happy” to the world by making it easier to celebrate any moment with gifts built specific to each recipient. Our customers pick a box, pick a variety of gifts, and pick a card, and their gift gets sent directly to their recipient’s door. We buy a large majority of our products from other female-owned and local businesses, so our customers know they are supporting great businesses when they buy from us. Our warehouse/HQ is located in midtown Hoboken, NJ.
