"I've worked with Lisa on two substantial corporate projects now, and I can't say enough positive things about her and Elle Belle Box! We welcome large intakes of Interns and Graduates every year, and showcasing locally sourced goods has become paramount. Partnering with Lisa, we're able to ship beautiful items that are quintessentially Chicago in one very thoughtful, stunning gift box so that recipients can experience the city, even before they arrive.
Lisa has been so creative in coming up with the perfect curated gifts for our employees that we are now moving on to a third, longer-term project with Elle Belle Box. Lisa is kind, considerate, and extremely patient, as I've needed to chase up addresses or confirm allergies. She is very well organized and always follows up when needed to ensure that each Elle Belle Box is delivered on or before time.
Thank you, Lisa; it's always such a pleasure working with you! In the short amount of time we've worked together, seeing your business go from strength to strength has been such a joy. I look forward to working with you again in the future!"

"Elle Belle Box is the perfect gift! The gift box is unusual, very unique with high quality products. When I wanted to thank several friends for their help and support, I was looking for more than flowers or a bottle of wine......something that was special. That is Elle Belle Box. Lisa Munro, owner of Elle Belle Box was personally involved in picking out just the right products for my gifts. She spent the energy and time making sure the gift was the "special gift" to the person I was sending it to. If you are looking for that very special gift for a very special occasion or person, look no further than Elle Belle Box. You will not be disappointed, I promise!"

"If you are looking for a unique and special gift box to send to anyone in your life look no further than Elle Belle Box! I have been working with Lisa over this last year and we have developed a great relationship, therefore I have seen how much effort she will put in to make sure each box is curated perfectly for her clients. I appreciate her attention to detail with each box and creative approach to bringing attention to locally owned small businesses such as my own, through her

"Elle Belle Box is truly a gift inside of a gift. Not only does Lisa always choose the perfect items for her beautiful boxes, she provides such an incredible service to her customers. As a working mom navigating parenting and e-learning during a pandemic and an entrepreneur endeavoring to start a brand new company, I can't tell you how much I appreciate being able to lean on Lisa whenever I need the perfect gift, which is often. I recently signed up for a subscription program with Elle Belle Box which allows me to welcome our many work related visitors to town with the perfect local flair. Gift giving is important to me and there aren't many people I would trust to support me in this process, but working with Lisa feels like working with a friend who knows just what I need. I highly recommend Elle Belle Box!"

"If you’re looking for a beautiful, locally-sourced and fun gift, Elle Belle Box is all you’ll ever need. I’m a busy mom who sometimes gets underwater with gifting - a birthday pops up, a friend is sick, someone helps me and I want to say thanks. Ordering flowers takes a couple of days, and I could make a gift box myself but ain’t nobody got time for that. Enter Lisa and Elle Belle Box. On countless occasions, Lisa has created beautiful boxes that were delivered quickly and adored by their recipients. I’m so grateful that I can now quickly give tasteful and thoughtful Elle Belle Boxes rather than agonizing over the perfect bottle of wine or having flowers wilt on a friend’s front porch. It’s truly been a game-changer for me.
The gifts we give are a reflection on our own tastes and values. I’m pretty particular (aren’t we all?), and normally wouldn’t trust someone else to pick gifts on my behalf. Lisa is the exception - she has flawless, timeless style and works with local producers to find the best of the best. I trust her 10000% to put together classy boxes that celebrate the best of what our area has to offer. Lisa does her best to get any baked goods/coffee beans fresh that day, and the boxes are beautifully packaged. I love that they contain several items, so if the recipient doesn’t like delicious cookies, well, there are chocolates or a cute cup or something else they’ll surely dig.
Lisa is one of my best friends, and I know what’s in her heart - she sincerely wants to promote other local makers, and works hard to put together win-win partnerships with her sources. Buy an Elle Belle Box and you’re supporting multiple up-and-coming small businesses with a single purchase. Lisa also truly cares about other people, and that shines through in everything she does. She wants you and your recipient to be beyond thrilled with EBB, and she works around the clock to make sure that every last detail of her gifts is perfect.
In closing, stop reading this and go check out the boxes - words can’t do them justice. Hit the “checkout” button and you’ll feel good about supporting local businesses, and your friends will be wowed by an amazing gift box. Lisa is an incredible businesswoman, mom, and dear friend, and I’m so grateful that she’s sharing her talents with our community!"

"We met Lisa of Elle Belle Box at one of the few, late summer pandemic “socially distanced” networking events last year and so glad we did. What started out as a small novel idea of hers – to help spread joy within the strange Covid times AND help local businesses keep their heads and spirits up turned into a sensational EXPERIENCE. Yes, an EXPERIENCE. If you have not received or gifted an Elle Belle Box or a Mini Belle, you should! Lisa puts so much heart and soul into the product: from picking out vendors and stores to feature, the actual boxes themselves, the beautiful displayed items all the way to the front door delivery if local! Whether it be for a personal gift, a client gift or a much needed self-indulgence -it’s worth it 100%."

"Elle Belle Box is such a unique gift – one that is carefully curated by owner, Lisa, and that supports local businesses. A win, win! I have used the boxes for clients as a closing gift and have also purchased personally for those special people in my life who are difficult to shop for. Lisa has helped create custom boxes, personalized by recipient and occasion. They’re not only very pretty to give, but they’re so fun to open and uncover the surprises inside. I highly recommend Elle Belle Box as a perfect gifting solution!"

"I absolutely love the appearance of the box and the quality of its contents, as well as the fact that they are sourced locally. Add in the fact that Lisa has always been willing to accommodate any customization requests for my clients, and this makes it a perfect solution for business gifts as well as personal ones!"

"Elle Belle Box is a complete time saver. Instead of going in and out of shops, trying to find the perfect gift - Lisa will do it for me, box it up beautifully, and send it out - in less time than it takes to find a parking spot in downtown OP. Elle Belle Box has introduced me to so many great local businesses, like Kribi Coffee, Mauro Provisions, and Blackout Baking Co (and more - these are just ones that stand out for me!). I love that I’m supporting local while also supporting my own sanity by not having do lots of shopping to put together the perfect gift. Thanks Elle Belle Box!"
“Elle Belle box was such a lifesaver for me as I was struggling to put together thoughtful employee Christmas gifts for my team. Between work and mom life I was struggling to come up with something unique and thoughtful to tell my employees how much I appreciate them. Insert, Lisa and Elle Belle! Not only was each box customized to the employee and my budget, it was so incredibly easy. What looked and felt like a time consuming and thoughtful process was no more than a few emails back and forth. Elle Belle saved my tired mom buns this holiday!”
"My wife and I have enjoyed a few different boxes from Elle Belle Box and each time we receive a box we can feel the love and time spent to make each one perfect. I love the attention to detail and custom options she gives. It feels like I am working with someone who knows me and will put together a special box for any need I might have. For example I wanted a popcorn box for my wife and she created something so perfect it was like she was in my head. I am forever a huge fan and will have her create special boxes for years to come!"
"I am absolutely obsessed with Elle Belle Box! I love giving unique gifts but don’t have the time or talent to curate them. Lisa does an amazing job and I’ve sent Elle belles for all sorts of occasions — even a “just because”. Everyone who receives them raves about them. And one of the side perks is that I’ve learned about local businesses that I’ve never heard of before, such as Rare Bird Preserves! It’s such a great way to give thoughtful gifts while supporting local and women owned businesses!"
- Jennifer Ierardi
"When I first heard about Elle Belle Box I immediately put in a pre-order and got one of the first boxes she ever made. It was such a treat and so luxurious! I was hooked! I ordered the Spa box and it was the perfect pick me up for a very pregnant and tired momma. Now this is my go-to when I want to send something special and I know that the recipient is the getting the highest quality and carefully picked gift. Everyone loves their gifts and can tell they are crafted with love."
"Everything from Elle Belle Box is beautiful, thoughtfully curated and delivered with the utmost care. Lisa is a true professional who is running an amazing local business that I turn to for most gift giving."
- Brigitte Nold
"HIGHLY recommend! Lisa was amazing to work with. She understood EXACTLY what I needed for a custom Chicago box. Every detail was perfect (even the packaging). Beautiful, quality items that make a lasting gift! Thank you so much! I look forward to ordering more boxes. PS the recipients LOVED their package!"
- Ela Tomala
" I love my monthly Elle Belle Box subscriptions. Just a little special something for me. It’s so luxe, it really brightens up my day. Even my husband likes to “unveil” them to see what I get, then take half of it. Lisa nails it every time. Wish I could get a weekly box. We all deserve one."
- Andrea Swiercz
"Elle Belle Box is a meta win for female Entrepreneurs because boosting local women's businesses is her entire gig! It appears she can save the day by putting together an amazing assortment for any occasion."
