Celebrate Minnesota Made Products

Our Story


We are Minnesotans!  Like other strong and vibrant communities around the world we support local businesses.  This is the foundation on which the Love MN Box exists.  Based out of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, we strive to spotlight the rich and diverse MN Makers which make our sate so amazing.  We love the ability to curate items, bundle them in boxes and create a one-of-a-kind gift experience.  


This concept was established in 2019.  It started as a subscription box and has evolved in a gift box concept.   In its first four years we discovered so many amazing products that reflect all the unique aspects of Minnesota.  Now, with an immense community of MN Makers that are connected to Love MN Box we are focusing on developing a collection of boxes that can be purchased at any time of the year.  We continue to discover new products, so having a strong variety to choose from will always exist.  


These boxes are part of a growing family of box concepts under the parent company called Elevated Boxes.  We welcome you to visit the website and watch things grow. www.elevatedboxes.com

This is really a “passion project”.  If you ever dig into box concepts like these you will quickly learn that it is not about the profit… cause there isn’t much.  When you purchase these boxes feel good that you are truly part of the local community and economy.

If you have gotten this far and are still reading this, know that we are so grateful that you are here.

The Love MN Box is the perfect gift.  Whether you are from Minnesota or surrounding states, love for local culture is everywhere.  The Uff Da spirit is friendly and welcoming. 

The box concept was born in White Bear Lake Minnesota.  As a result, many items are found in close proximity to the hometown.  However, we want the box to be appealing to people across Minnesota and the country.  Every item in the box can be enjoyed regardless of where you hail from.  

A major source of inspiration was to draw attention to local businesses.  Big name brands have a time and place, but so do the small businesses.  However, those businesses often don’t have the budget or time to gain the attention of the masses.  The Love MN Box gives these great local businesses another place to be seen, tried, and liked.  

We consider this one of the best Minnesota gift giving experiences.  We have award winning products from proud business owners.  It has a wonderful place in main holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Beyond that it can always make for a great birthday gift, house warming present, party gift, anniversary gift, and so many more.  It can also be used as a business gift.  With many businesses seeking unique ways to thank clients at traditional times, nothing says unique like and Love Minnesota Box.  Additionally, it is a great gift option for employers to give employees, and co-workers to give each other.  Just think of how great it would be to receive an Love MN Box as a Secret Santa gift.

It’s pretty trendy to be a fan of the Midwest and have a Minnesota identity.  Many brands are emerging using words like Sota and doing a great job of promoting our great state.  We would like to explore all types of options for the box.  They would include clothing, hats, gloves, headwear, apparel, bottle openers, key chains, candles, patches, cookie cutters, holiday ornaments, and many other options.  

There is so much potential and fun to have with the concept. You betcha we’ll continue to focus on reflecting the pride of our great state and this region of the country.
