HOW TO MAKE A GIFT BOX

So you'd like to make a gift box of wonderful American made goodies?! You've come to the right place!

The three main routes of our gift box program are explained below. Simply click on the grey boxes to learn more! Then scroll down to see options available for purchase!

I'd Like to build my own gift box

This route allows you to pick out specific items to put inside, giving you the most control over gift box contents!

Follow these instructions to build your own gift box:

  1. GETTING STARTED. In order for us to know you'd like your order made into a gift box -- click here to add this item to your cart, making note of the amount you intend to spend to get the free box vs. paying the $5 or $10 boxing fee. There is more info in the description of this item to explain details about which box fee to pick. This content total is before shipping/tax/box fee.  
  2. ADD THE ITEMS! Please select at least 4 items. We have combed our vast inventory for a selection of items that fit inside gift boxes, but a lot more on our site does fit! i.e. jewelry, food, bath/body, t-shirts. If an item does not fit or items don't "play nice" with others - we may bump you to a different shipping box or we'll be in touch with suggestions. Click here to browse our selection of items that fit in gift boxes.  
  3. CARD OPTIONAL - click here to add a greeting card! Pick out a specific card here, and in the notes before checkout, write what you'd like us to write inside. Messages are handwritten, so please try to keep it on the short side.
  4. DOUBLECHECK your work-- did you add the "Build a Gift Box" item to your order... did you select the right $ amt based on your total before taxes/shipping/box fee... Do you have at least 4 items other than the gift box? Do you feel the items will all fit inside the 10 x 10 x 5 Gift Box? Did you add your note for inside the card?

*If you do not hit a minimum of 4 items and/or they don't add up to minimum $40 before box fee/tax/ship, we will bump you to gift wrapping. Unfortunately the boxing and the materials cost us a lot - and we have to make sure the program is sustainable.

For store pick-up, if you need your order same day or next day, please give our store a call after placing your order or make a note at checkout - so we can make sure to have it ready when you need it.

I'd like Common Deer to Custom build A gift Box

Our team will custom build a gift box just for your recipient based on your description, selecting items that look great together and fit inside the box nicely. We can make a box for just about any occasion or person!

  1. It's easy! Just find a themed box below that works for your occasion below. The themed customizable boxes are named things like "new baby", "I love Vermont", "Surprise Support", etc. If you cannot find one that fits -- just pick any one and be sure to make a note of the occasion in the notes.
  2. OPTIONAL - add a greeting card! Pick out a specific card here.
  3. In the cart pop up, there is a text box for notes -- please describe the recipient - interests, age, gender, occasion, favorite animals, activities, allergies, etc is incredibly helpful to our team. Also, if you have general items in mind (candles, snacks, etc), please make a note, but we cannot always pull specific inventory items mentioned. Also in the notes, please write out your quick message for inside the card if you included one - Messages are handwritten, so please try to keep it on the short side.

Please note that custom builds can sometimes take an extra day or two in handling.

** For pick-up, these custom box orders can sometimes only be fulfilled on certain days of the week due to staffing. If you need your order for pick up same day or next day, we recommend building your own, or giving us a call to see what's possible!

I'd Like a Pre-made limited edition box

We release curated set gift boxes randomly throughout the year. They sell out quickly, but take a look to see if we have any left below - they'll be a photograph of the actual box contents. If you see one that's sold out, note that we can sometimes build ones similar to these for the custom builds. We unfortunately cannot adjust the contents of these set boxes, but you're welcome to add additional small items and a greeting card, just add them to your order before checkout.


Please note that everything in your order needs to ship inside the gift box, as the gift box is its shipping vessel. If you are sending gift boxes to multiple addresses, please complete a separate order for each gift box. If you know something will not fit in the gift box (i.e. print), please place a separate order for it or we will move your order to gift wrapping instead. If you'd like your order simply gift wrapped, you do not need to make a gift box - just mention "gift wrap" in your order notes at checkout. Interested in bulk gift boxes? Please email info@commondeer.com.
