Today we are honored to introduce you to Paige and Inger from Tique Box.




Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.

Hello! It’s Paige and Inger from Tique Box. While vacationing together on the Oregon Coast in 2013, we kicked around the idea of starting a subscription and gift box service that featured Portland artisans. We saw it as a great way to collaborate and solve the challenge many of us encountered: sending a piece of Portland as a gift.

A year and some change later, we have sold boxes to customers all over the United States and featured more than 40 Portland artisans in unique gift packages. Our clients range from people who want to treat themselves with a monthly subscription box to people who send our boxes as gifts to friends, family, clients and colleagues.

Each month, we offer a new monthly box that highlights five to seven artisans who come together to form a lovely theme. Additionally, we are launching four new speciality boxes over the next month: The Liz Crain Box, The Gent Box: Dudefully Splendid, The Pamper Yourself Box and The Cocktail Box.

We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?

We love our work with Tique Box because it’s an opportunity to bring happiness to everyone involved.

Inger loves finding new artisans, building new boxes with exceptional products and creating beautiful, memorable experiences for our customers. Paige finds joy in telling the Tique Box story and the stories of its artisans, digging deep into feedback to discover new ways to improve the experience for customers and helping artisans connect with new opportunities to grow their business. They both love the opportunity to test new products (especially chocolates!).

Customers have shared that giving and receiving a box is the gift that keeps giving as they try new items, explore the work of local artisans and say “Thank You”, “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Holidays” in a very special way. Artisans explain that working with Tique Box is a wonderful experience because we spread the word about their business, help them find new markets and treat their work with the respect it deserves.

Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly believe that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?

We find beauty and inspiration in the beauty that is Portland, Oregon, and the people with whom we work. Whether it’s on a run along the river in Downtown or a hike in Forest Park, we are constantly reminded of the splendor that the Pacific Northwest. It’s a magical place that has so much to offer from her stunning coastline and high desert to the fruit-filled valleys and peaks of her majestic mountains. Furthermore, the inhabitants of this great city are kind, go out of their way to help each other and support the local, small business community.

On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?

Because it rains so much and is often gray during the winter and spring months, we work hard to find the sunshine on days when it’s not available. We lover to exercise (run, hike or bike), craft, host dinners with friends and laugh.



What are you most grateful for?

We are most grateful for the opportunity to work with incredible people and build a business that we truly adore.
