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.
There have of course been many trials along the way - the bursting of the dot-com bubble, the recession, the Karma Chameleon Phone incident (that's a story for another time!) - 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 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 your happy. Whether that's our Gift Wizard which will suggest the perfect prezzy for anyone, or our newest venture into personalised gifting which gives you your own personalised store!
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.
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.
Success is celebrated with team trips, with recent outings including Flight Club (sorry, we can't talk about it), Ghetto Golf, and even the Crystal Maze.
