“I praise you because I am fearfully & wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Hi, I'm Kelsey.
I created Wonderfully Made as an online respite from the commerce-centric, over-scheduled and hurried pace of the world.
A space where true connection happens through intentionally designed, luxury gift boxes that inspire a simpler way of living, and bring the giver closer to her recipient through a purposeful, meaningful gift.
A space where those who love to give gifts can easily find and send memorable gifts without having to prioritize hours of shopping, packaging and shipping over self-care time, family dinner or coffee with a friend.
A space where gentle business is practiced in the Wonderfully Made office, and regularly discussed in our journal entries for readers to be inspired by.
A space where the business world's norm of convincing, striving and hustling is gently asked to have a seat while we slow down, connect with what is real and restore the softness, trust and support that is available through deepening into a simpler way of doing business.
A space where slow living shines through, and connection with God, ourselves, our spouse, family and friends comes before the endless to-do's, the beckon of social media, and the "should"'s we subconsciously place on our minds and hearts.
I pray you find value and inspiration here.
Wonderfully Made began as a simple online gift shop where I made beautiful gift boxes for my customers to purchase and send to their recipients. While it's root of wanting to make memorable gifting simple still remains, the heart of Wonderfully Made has shifted quite a bit since its beginning in 2020.
I've always loved creating unique, boutique-style gifts for anyone and everyone. Yet, I found myself being drawn more and more towards having a deeper reason behind my gift designs. Through experiencing the fast-paced and always "on" world of the entrepreneurial business space, which then bled into my personal life, I realized how uncomfortable I was with the way I was living, and going about growing Wonderfully Made. I decided I needed to shift my heart, schedule and pace.
Soon after I began pursuing what I call slow living and gentle business, I decided that my gift designs and content would reflect and inspire the softer pace of living and business I had chosen to follow. And so, Wonderfully Made has become an online space where true connection, gentle business and slow living meet. Every gift designed here is rooted in the idea of intentional connection between the giver and the receiver. Every journal entry is meant to help, connect, inspire and give insight into a slower way of living, and a gentler way of conducting business. And I pray that any and all interactions had with Wonderfully Made leave a calming, meaningful and lasting impression.
Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for shopping small.
✨ Happy Connecting - Kelsey ✨
