When I first heard about In the 6, a gift box created by Meredith Beebe, I was beyond excited. The inspiration behind this idea is to support local businesses. Meredith has seen firsthand how small business shop owners invest in their community and the importance of giving back.

Here a just a few reasons why you’ll love this gift box too……..

  • Fully customizable gifts
  • Various sizes at different price points are available
  • 10% of the proceeds go to charity
  • Gifts are all from some of my favorite local stores in Geneva, IL
