Hi, we're Prezzybox!
We're on a mission to create moments of happiness for friends and family, by delivering the extraordinary. We aim to sell the kinds of gifts to trigger that moment of excitement and elation when you find them, when you give them, and when they open them.
The story begins...
Born in 2000 in a tiny office in Warwickshire, the creation of founder, Zak Edwards.
Spurred on by the dot com boom, the recent sale of his Dad's business, and his lack of enthusiasm in his job at the time - Zak spotted an opportunity online to deliver happiness (or more literally, to sell gifts).
Before long, the website was online and Prezzybox was born! We improved day after day - be that the way we looked, or the way we operated. Slowly but surely, people began to take notice.
Our head office was for many years a beautiful, serene farmhouse in the midlands – we even had our very own goats!
"Having fun is one of the most important things in life. The fact that I can do this while 'at work' is awesome! At Prezzybox, it's our mission to create moments of happiness. We're a family where every day is a chance to collaborate, innovate, create and make a difference - for our team, and our customers. Goats and all."
- Zak Edwards, Founder & Managing Director (2000-2020)
There have of course been many trials along the way - the bursting of the dot-com bubble, the recession, the global pandemic - but with a lot of hard work, late nights, and a dash of luck, we're still here and stronger than ever!
What the future holds...
In 2022, we were acquired by Gift Universe, the parent company of gifts and gadgets retailer Menkind.
In this ever-changing digital world we now live in, there's no time for resting on your laurels. To continue heading towards our eutopia, we have to continuously innovate and come up with new ideas.
Whether this is embracing new technology to make our website faster and more secure, or searching high and low for the newest exciting gifts - the only thing that doesn't change, is that we're always changing. We love providing new ways for you to find moments of happiness. Our eutopia, our end-goal is to be the brand you think of when you think of happiness. That's just what we're all about: Making people happy.
In doing so, we’ve taken the step to open physical Prezzybox retail stores in multiple locations across the UK. You can find the location of all our current stores here. We’re starting slowly, with the aim to expand across the country. So, if there’s not a store near you just yet, hold tight as there may be soon!
Who we are
We aim to be more than just another online gift shop. It's important for us to be our best selves while we're at work. This means working with true empathy for one another, and realising that work is one part of life.
There's not any real hierarchy at Prezzybox, unlike at many corporate companies - no one is too young, too old, or too new to make suggestions and shake up the way we do things. Working collaboratively means seeing the value in every single person and helping them develop.
Successes - and failures, we're not perfect! - are communicated to the whole team. Being open and transparent with each other gives everyone an identity within the company.
