My name is Mel, and I love gift giving.

I once gave my best friend 30 individualized wrapped presents for her 30th birthday. It was both hilarious and exhausting (all that shopping and watching her unwrap them – it took some time).

I’d been dreaming about a curated treat-yourself gift box for months. I’d do a little work on it, then stop… then start again, then stop… Launching a business is terrifying. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it – I live a busy life, family, friends, work, and once in a while I like to treat myself. I love the subscription box model, I love getting a surprise every month, and I love finding new and different local products to share with others. When I thought about all the options for a box I could curate, a very good friend suggested lifestyle – and it clicked. So here we are.

My name is Jo, and I talked my way into becoming Mel’s business partner!

Not going to lie, that’s exactly what I did – I LOVED being one of the first subscribers to Little&Luxe. Like Mel, I have a family and work full time, and it is just so nice to receive something you don’t have to share (especially if you open it in secret and hide the edible component)!

I’ve been one of Little&Luxe’s biggest cheerleaders since Mel launched the box back in September 2017. And now I get to help her – we’re both passionate about local New Zealand businesses, we LOVE finding new products and brands you might not of heard of or tried, and we are so excited about sharing them with you!

Now you know all about us (one day we might even get a picture up here – but it’s never great to whip out the camera while we’re in packing mode – that gets messy) – we’d love to find out more about you. To get your specially curated monthly box, head on over to the Little&Luxe page, we can’t wait to treat you!

We hope you love it as much as we love curating it,

Mel & Jo
