Being a small business comes with many challenges: that’s a fact. We wouldn’t change it for the world, though. Why? Because being a small, independently-owned business means that there are no “big guys” at the top of the corporate ladder telling us what to do, how to minimize our costs, and what products to make next. It’s amazing to have the freedom to create, inspire, and spread happiness across Canada and the United States one gift parcel at a time. Even if it means tackling all kinds of challenges on our own and wearing dozens of hats.
When we started Parcelly, we brainstormed the heck out of gift parcel themes that people might like to send their friends and family members. What we didn’t anticipate is the popularity of the "Cheer Up, Buttercup" gift parcel! We quickly realized that there is no shortage of people in the world who aim to put a smile on their loved ones' faces.
We love the Parcelly brand and everything it stands for. Gift parcels with a celebration inside are sort of our thing. Life, however, is full of surprises! After many coffee chats, we hit the drawing board to design something like the "Cheer Up, Buttercup", that people could use every single day. Because the only thing better than receiving a gift that says “I care about you!” is being able to use it regularly and be reminded daily that someone out there thinks you’re hella special. So special that they sent you happy mail instead of a lame text or an email. That speaks volumes.
Happy Muggin’ isn’t your average mug in a box, it's an experience. It’s a creative way to say “Hey, you kinda mean a lot to me!”. Inside each mug, you’ll find a cotton drawstring bag of Random Compliments curated by you. Yes, you! Choose 3 Random Compliments out of a list of 10 fun, pre-written phrases. Ever dreamed of telling a bestie that they're better than a unicorn? Or that they deserve a whole sheet of gold stars? Now you can.
Include a gift message (if you’d like) and send it directly the recipient's address (as always!) We also encourage you to send one to the person you hang out with 24/7 - yourself. While we always look out for our friends and family members, we often forget that we, too, deserve to be happy and smile.
