Hello there!

Hi there, and thanks for your interest in Local Artisan Boxes!!

The SHOP link has all the info for ordering boxes.

If you’d like to stay in the loop, please subscribe to my newsletter (in the menu bar up top).


My name is Julie Paul, and I’m very excited to share this venture with the world. Local Artisan Boxes are gift boxes that contain all good things from Coastal BC, in particular Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

I’m a Victoria-based writer and massage therapist, and I’ve been a longtime supporter of products that are local, handmade, and inspiring. We have a plethora of good stuff here–we’re very, very lucky. I know some of you have been here before, and may be dearly missing our coastal vibes, and I want to share them with you. These days more than ever, getting a little sweetness delivered to your front porch feels even more special.

Local Artisan Boxes began in December 2020, and up until August 2022, I created new LAB boxes on a bi-monthly basis. I also curate boxes for holidays such as Mother’s Day and the ever-popular Solstice/Christmas LAB, as well as custom boxes for YOUR special occasion. 

How does it work? I put together a beautiful mix of goodies for you from our amazing local artisans and makers. I keep sustainability and eco-friendliness in mind as I do this–and focus on consumables: items you will actually use, eat or be able to give as gifts. Most boxes are gender-inclusive, although some cater to more specific audiences. Oh! And I use my writing chops to include a few details about each item and its maker. They are available to ship across Canada, as well as for local customers via free pick-up or $5 local delivery in the Greater Victoria area.

(July 2022: I changed my model from subscription-based boxes to gift boxes. August 2022 was the final bimonthly subscription box going out to subscribers. Thank you all for your amazing support!) 

Check out photos on Instagram, below, or in the Gallery or under Past LABS.  

If you’re a Coastal BC creator, please, get in touch. I want to hear about your offerings and consider them for future boxes! 

Thank you, and be well.
