These surprise gift boxes by Little Trovebox has people hooked
Pratima Vikram Bhinge and her son Kush’s successful business venture, Little Trovebox – By Kush, makes for a heart-warming story.
Like any parent, Pratima Vikram Bhinge was worried when hers son Kush was diagnosed with a developmental delay. That worry triggered in her the desire to find a skill her son loved best.
Pratima realised Kush loves to give gift friends and relatives and she decided to take this a step further. That is how Little Trovebox – By Kush was born. Kush, with Pratima’s guidance, makes curated and customised gift boxes that are becoming quite an attraction.
Kush, who is now 16 years old, loves to experiment with these boxes. Pratima loves to see the smile on his face after he completes each box. What makes this venture even more lovely is that the equipment used to make these boxes are made by children with disabilities.
Kush, who is now studying functional academics at a school in Pune, is totally hooked as he juggles academics and this venture.
We are lucky to have supportive friends and family who encouraged us to start Little Trovebox. Over the years, I’ve been wondering what can be done to make Kush independent and self-reliant. It must also be something that he enjoys doing. That is when I noticed his love to send gifts and make them too. We take customised orders and our venture has been getting good response till date. – Pratima Vikram Bhinge
Recently, Kush received a bulk order for gift boxes from a company, their biggest until date. They plan to expand their venture and have turned to Facebook to promote it. Their page, Little Trovebox – By Kush has over 100 liked.
From motifs to leaf designs, Kush paints and designs what his heart feels. The boxes are also gift wrapped with newspapers and ribbons to add to its appeal. Prices vary for each box. “We want to offer nothing lesser than the best for our customers. We have started pricing our boxes from Rs 200, says Pratima. Kush undertakes orders for any occasion and personalises the boxes based on what customers want.
“In my experience, I have found trove box to be an off-beat and amazing gift, bespoke and very thoughtful collection. As an adult, I could experience the long gone excitement of unwrapping a gift once again. Trovebox is not just another gift, it surely does make memories every time I gift it. Hence, this is highly recommended, says customer Omkar Gosavi.
