Zeal is great energy, dedication, or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective. If you have zeal, you’re willing, energized, and motivated.
Box of Zeal Gift Co., founded in August of 2020 by three sorority sisters, is an online gifting platform that offers thoughtfully curated and highly personalized gift boxes for every occasion, big or small in just a few simple clicks. No more waiting in line at the post office or just grabbing a gift card last minute at the drugstore. Show someone you care without leaving the safety or comfort of your own home.
We started Box of Zeal with a clear mission: to help people create moments and memories filled with Zeal – even when they can’t physically be together.
Prior to the pandemic, each founder in silo yearned to give gifts to those we cared about beyond the typical flowers or the afterthought of a generic gift card. It was that frustration, combined with the desire for entrepreneurship spurred from the calls to action to start and support black-owned businesses in 2020, created the spark that started Box of Zeal.
A few months later, our e-commerce site lets customers either pick an expertly curated option or build the perfect gift box for any occasion through our build-a-box platform. Whether personal or corporate, we top each gift with a handwritten note and ship around the world.
Our approach to business is centered around the power of gifting to build authentic connections. We’re committed to making elevated gifting an accessible, affordable, personal and meaningful to those who give with Zeal and those who receive it!
