Parents, family and friends alike will be amazed and delighted to discover a new company specialising in beautifully packaged impressive looking gifts for all ages and occasions. Amanda McManus and Maria Palmer, both mums themselves from Northampton, are officially launching the new internet based business venture on 16th June 2006 in order to provide a new range of inspirational, engaging and thoughtful gifts any buyer will be proud of giving, and any recipient would be delighted to receive.

Amanda and Maria explain “Our Giftboxes are jam packed with goodies hand picked by us to ensure every one of our Giftboxes exceeds expectations. With Giftboxes based on individual themes, there really is something for everyone.” Beautifully packaged in huge glossy white gift boxes with separate lids, and finished with a luxurious hand tied organza ribbon bow, the first impression recipients get is second to none, and it doesn’t stop there. Each box has a raft of entertaining, thoughtful, high quality individual gifts, all carefully selected for relevance to each Giftbox 'theme'. Not only that, but Cocoon Collection offer buyers the option of ‘Creating their own Giftbox’, to make a truly personal and hugely memorable gift.

There are over 20 products to choose from for Father’s Day alone, and with prices starting from £19.99, the range is sensational.

In addition, Cocoon Collection also offers Giftboxes for children from birth, new parents, pre-teens, teenagers, students and an unbelievable range of choice for adults – there’s one for every occasion from a new baby arriving to a 60th birthday gift, from a Giftbox for the home to simply cheering someone up with one of the choices from the selection of get well Giftboxes.

The ‘for children’ range features the fantastic Storyboxes, which are a new range of inspirational, engaging and educational gifts especially for children.

Amanda explains “Our Storyboxes are jam packed with goodies specially selected to bring a favourite story to life. Each box has a copy of the book and a unique collection of items that help tell the tale.” The boxes are a memorable gift to both parents and children, are beautifully packaged, and contain visual aids such as toys; games; dress up and role play activities which give readers and story tellers a set of magical tools to bring stories to life.

Maria explains that ordering is simple “Customers can go on-line to, select Storyboxes or a choice of Giftboxes from the list. Delivery can be arranged to the customers own house, or if they choose to whoever the gift is for - next day if they wish!” All Storyboxes and Giftboxes are beautifully packaged in a gorgeous white box, with all of the contents nestling in shredded tissue paper so it’s like a treasure trove for children and adults alike when they dive in! Each gift box comes with its own contents page to ‘explain’ the items and an optional hand written gift message card inside. The box is finished with a luxury hand tied organza ribbon and a gift tag.

Amanda and Maria have over 15 years of management experience between them, and both have small children so understand what it’s like for busy parents, family and friends to try and find a present or toy that’s going to be enjoyed by the child, but also provides an educational gift that delights adults. They have found that men in particular have been delighted to find the Cocoon Collection website with one customer quoting “Like most men, my presents for the children are last minute. Having found the Cocoon website (for my son with a Fidgety Fish Storybox), this made me look like a hero with minimal effort. My daughter loved her gift box, and has been a mermaid ever since. I am going to get my wife a box as she was exceptionally impressed. I have a gift solution, for every occasion, thank goodness. I hate shopping!!!”
