Firstly, the warmest of thank yous to all of you for joining us on the WeeBox journey! We have been overwhelmed with support and love from all over the world and it is truly our honour to bring you Scottish happiness every month!
Your WeeBox was born from a passion to spread Scottish joy and bring our glorious land a wee bit closer – whether you are a Scot abroad, of Scottish heritage or just dream of visiting one day, WeeBox is for you.
So to celebrate moving into our 3rd year this St. Andrew’s Day, we wanted to ‘lift the lid’ of WeeBox … introducing you to our dedicated founder, team and some of our favourite small, Scottish artisans who create your inspiring gifts each month.
So sit back and enjoy our wee ‘lifting the lid’ series.
Meet WeeBox Founder, Amy McCusker
When WeeBox Founder, Amy McCusker, first tried to send her brother Scottish gifts from home after his move to Australia, she discovered it wasn’t so easy!
The shipping was hugely expensive and any Scottish hampers did not have the quality or range of products that she knew she would handpick. So, she set to work with her husband Gerard and 3 wee boys to lovingly design and curate a ‘wee box’ of Scottish joy that she knew her brother and family would adore. From this … WeeBox was born!
Now moving into its 3rd year on St. Andrew’s Day 30th November 2019, WeeBox has grown to become a much cherished part of thousands of Scots and Scot-at-hearts lives all over the world.
Amy shipped her 1st WeeBox in January 2017. Tens of thousands of WeeBoxes later, Amy has spread Scottish happiness to over 25 countries, won 5 international awards and helped over 150 small, Scottish businesses reach a global audience. Not to mention lovingly caring for her global WeeBox Clan subscribers and creating an inspiring community of like-minded Scots and Scots-at-heart who share their stories, Scottish heritage and travel with each other. This is what Amy is most proud of.
So, into 2020 you can expect more new and exciting Scottish products, not yet featured inside WeeBox, more joy, more surprises and more Scottish happiness straight from WeeBox and Amy to you!
