Once Upon a Time...


When my daughter went to college a few years ago, I began sending gift boxes loaded with treats, novelty items, and decorations for special occasions and holidays. She loved it and it was fun for me. Inspiration took over as unique gift boxes went to family, friends, and now to you, your loved ones, and your special friends!


Fairy Godmother Gift Box began as an online gift and care-package service specializing in making unique gift boxes of superior quality for many occasions. We create unique and whimsical gift boxes to provide encouragement, say I love you, celebrate birthdays and holidays, or to offer your very personal good wishes for students, recent graduates, relatives, and special friends. 


Our themed gift boxes are a great way for you to show you care, send your love, help someone needing a pick-me-up, or "being there" for a special occasion. We also have a number of "just because" boxes that are perfect when you want to send a surprise package filled with delight! You can feel good knowing your gift will reflect your eye for quality, taste, and high standards.

We love details and it shows!

Can I personalize the box or add a personal message?

Absolutely! The order page allows you to add a personal message. And, you can add extra items to enhance your gift in a very personal way. You can also find add-on items. Or, contact us so we can work together to create a very special, one-of-a-kind gift box (as you would expect, special fees and costs may apply).

This Month's Spotlight Box

"O" Week Survival Box

You may have just dropped your student off at school, but why not send them a little "O" Week magic to let them know you're thinking of them?  This box has a variety of treats and activities to help them ease into college life.

Why Whimsy?

What good is a fairy godmother if she can't  make her gifts twinkle with a little bit of fun!  Our gift boxes are designed with that in mind -- packed with the really good stuff, decorated to reflect your sparkle and good taste, and sprinkled with a little bit of playfulness.

  1. Schedule packages to arrive early It is nice to receive a surprise on your birthday or on the exact date of a holiday, however most students would rather receive a package a day early than a day late. 
  2. Check the USPS, UPS, and Federal Express Information provided before choosing your shipping method. When in doubt (before or after you've placed your order) call us at 202.909.1181. We are available M-F 10-5 EST.  If you leave a message we will respond quickly. Feel free to leave us a message during non-office hours too.
  3. Shipping to College Students: Many colleges have a mail room which receives student packages. Please allow enough time for the school to notify and deliver the package to the recipient.  Schedule your package to arrive EARLY. Although not required, it's not a bad idea to notify the student that a package is coming their way.

A special note about campus addresses: Check with the Housing Office, Residence Life, or Student Affairs to make sure your shipping address is formatted correctly (we cannot obtain this for you),  In almost all cases, we must have a physical street address in order to ship via Federal Express and UPS. Campus Box Numbers do not always work in the same way regular PO Boxes most cases packages may be delivered to a campus box number via UPS if a street address is included in the shipping address.
