Meet Pumeli, your new gift giving best friend

If there’s one thing I love about traveling (well, obviously, there’s more than one thing), it’s collecting special gifts for my loved ones along the way. But as much as I’d love to pack up an entire bag filled with gifts to bring home, typically space is limited, and oftentimes the option to ship gifts home just isn’t available, practical or travel budget friendly. And for anyone living abroad or in a different state from your family and friends, sending a beautiful and thoughtful gift can be a real struggle.

Discovering Pumeli was a game changer for me. Their curated gift boxes give me that same feeling as collecting special gifts from around the world that I adore, but without the need to haul an extra bag with me when I travel! Pumeli offers a few different ways to shop—choose from their curated gift boxes, which each have a theme of sorts and vary in price points, or customize your own gift box with items your recipient will love. They even have gift boxes for new babies that make adorable baby shower gifts!

What sets Pumeli apart is that truly customizable feel. I discovered Pumeli when ordering a gift for a friend and was so impressed with the selection of gifts available—this isn’t your average gift box! Each item they carry is hand-selected by the Pumeli team from companies who share their philosophies and who promote their vision of consumer consciousness and sustainability. And, as if you didn’t need another reason to love Pumeli, they are women-owned and operated.

GIFTS THAT GIVE: Many of the gift boxes you see on the website help provide 5 meals to those who struggle with hunger in the USA. Certain collections and items also helps to provide a sustainable income for the fair-trade disabled artisans in India who hand weave the kitchen towels and wash cloths and the former women refugee candle makers rebuilding their lives in the USA.

As you’re thinking ahead to the holiday season, keep Pumeli in mind. They’re a great gift giving solution if you’re traveling for the holidays and would love to send gifts to people that you may not be able to see. Or, if you are going home for the holidays you can ship them ahead of time before you go, saving you tons of suitcase space and some stress.

  1. I love this! Great idea for people who are hard to buy for because they have all the “ordinary” type of gifts already. This is so special and meaningful! It’s a tough call because I’m tempted to keep it for myself haha but would probably give to my mom 🙂
