With the increase in virtual events, gifting has become even more important than ever, serving as a way to stay engaged with at-home guests, clients, and remote team members.

But today, recipients are more discerning and don’t want to receive cookie-cutter swag that feels impersonal or like an afterthought. That’s where Cheers in a Box comes in. This all-in-one virtual event and custom gifting solution for groups offer a turn-key process for event planners and hosts that helps eliminate the challenges of pulling together a fun, functional gift and virtual event that guests will love.

Founded by professional event planners, Cheers in a Box is a one-stop shop that curates custom gift boxes, which feature a range of products, with a special focus on showcasing small businesses, specifically those that are woman- and Black-owned. Plus, the gifts are designed to look like you sent them, with branded packing tape, customizable inserts and more. All you need to do is pick what you want—choose from a variety of themed boxes like Vino and Snacky or customize your own (the sky’s the limit!)—and provide the mailing addresses.

This female-owned company offers its own custom virtual experiences as well, such as Virtual Grazing Board Styling, Virtual Macaron Decorating, and Virtual Pancake Breakfast. These out-of-the-box offerings come with expert talent (such as a mixologist, sommelier, chef or baker), an event technician, and an emcee, as well as custom-designed collateral materials with branding, and corresponding boxes and kits filled with all the necessary ingredients and tools to participate in the hands-on workshops.

The virtual experiences also incorporate games to help increase engagement among guests, a networking session, and sponsor integration opportunities using the platform Gatheround, plus a live musician can be added into the program for an additional fee. Pared-down versions of the virtual events that include only the talent are also available; the client is in charge of the rest of the experience.

Looking for a virtual holiday party idea or team-building exercise? These turn-key experiences are unique and fun options—not basic or boring. And speaking of the holidays, channel Maria from The Sound of Music (or Oprah) and host a Virtual Favorite Things Party with Cheers in a Box. Here’s how it works: Each guest receives a survey asking them to provide a link to their most favorite item, product or snack. Based on the top suggested items by the group, the Cheers in a Box team curates a custom gift, which is sent to your guests. Everyone then gathers digitally for a virtual party, opens each gift together, and learns about each other’s favorite things.

Want to play Santa year-round? Sign up for the subscription service, choose the best frequency for you (monthly or quarterly) and your recipients will receive a curated box from the Cheers in a Box lineup on a regular basis. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
