How does Love From One work?
Love From One gift boxes are a very simple process designed to help save you time while still connecting you to the ones you love. Each gift box will be filled with a variety of items geared towards seniors. (See our WHAT'S INSIDE page for details.)
Why should I purchase a box?
For anyone who has a senior in their life, you know that for a variety of reasons, being able to see them rarely happens as often as you would like. We know, because that is the exact situation we are in with our grandparents. And you are made aware that often they can be very lonely. This is our way of allowing you to reach out, to say Hi, I am thinking of you, even through your busiest times. A way to bring a smile to the faces of those you love. A way to keep them connected to your lives. Sponsor a Senior boxes are a fantastic way to bring some joy to those seniors who do not have family.
What types of items are included in a subscription box?
We are working behind the scenes to source out items from various vendors that would be appropriate for our recipients. They will vary every month, but typical items include snacks, beverages, personal care, home use, home decoration, activities to keep their hands busy and minds engaged, and where possible anything related to the history of our country. We are also mindful of the small living area many seniors reside in and will not burden them with an overabundance of things to take up space. In addition, each box contains those personalized touches from you that makes your gift extra special.
I have a suggestion for a box item and/or I am a vendor who is interested in showcasing my products, may I contact you?
YES!! We LOVE new ideas and vendors!! Please email us at email@example.com. If you are a vendor please include a brief description of your product(s) and your company information. Please note that during our busiest times, we may not be able to respond right away, but we will get back to you!
How do I submit photos or notes to accompany my subscription box?
After placing your order, you will receive an email confirmation directing you to the personalize page to upload your picture and note. You may also access it on the website under the Order tab.
For subscriptions, we will be sending you an email reminder to submit your personal message and pictures that you would like included in your upcoming order.
Please be aware that the cut off to add personalized photos and notes is the 15th day of the month prior to shipment. After the 15th, if no personalized items have been supplied, the subscription will be fulfilled with the regular supplied box items only. We strongly encourage you to submit early to avoid missing the cut off.
What if I forget to submit photos or a note on time?
It's ok, we know you are busy! While we do very strongly encourage the inclusion of photos and notes, life happens and we understand that. Our team makes sure that each box will contain a personal note from us letting your loved one know that they are being thought of. To help you out, subscribers will also receive an email reminding of our submission deadline.
Are my photos and personal information safe with you?
I would like to send a box but for personal reasons would like it to remain anonymous. Can I still send one?
Of course. Purchase your gift box subscription and in the Personalize section, enter “I would like to send this gift anonymously” in the note section. Then simply disregard our automated email reminder to submit pictures. Your recipient will still receive everything else.
What are the shipping options and where can I ship?
As many seniors in assisted living type facilities have a box number, we ship through Canada Post to ensure we are able to deliver to everyone. At this time, we currently do not ship outside of Canada.
When will they receive their boxes?
All subscription orders are sent in January, April, July and October and will ship on the 5th of those months. Should the 5th fall on a weekend or holiday, boxes will ship on the next business day.
Birthday, Thinking of You and Sponsor a Senior boxes will ship within 7-10 business days unless otherwise stated.
We ship from central Alberta, so dependent upon where your recipient lives, they should be receiving their gift box shortly after shipment!
*Note: at this time couriers are experiencing shipping delays. We will continue to send boxes in a timely manner however know that typical shipment delivery times may be affected. Your recipients facility may also have quarentine measures in place delaying delivery.
How do I keep sending gift boxes to my loved one?
Choose our quarterly gift box subscription and we will take care of everything! All you need to do is provide digital photos and a note to include. We'll remind you of our upcoming shipments!
Alternatively, you may choose to send a one time Thinking of You box whenever you like, or you may also choose to send our birthday & holiday gift boxes to celebrate those special times of year.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards through Paypal. All payment information is kept secure through PayPal's privacy policies. Paypal accepts all major credit cards, a Paypal account is not required to purchase.
When will I be charged?

Love From One does not accept requests for returns or exchanges. If one of your products was damaged in shipping please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am concerned about my loved one receiving a box during the Covid-19 pandemic. What are you doing to minimize risks?
Without a doubt we are all concerned for everyone’s health and wellness during this very unprecedented time. At Love From One we are following all guidelines as set out by our government organizations & will continue to do so for as long as advised.
All products coming into our facility are quarantined for 72 hours, including the packaging we use. Staff members will wear gloves and masks while packaging boxes and will not be permitted to work when showing any symptoms. Be aware that most care facilities have their own stipulations in regards to incoming mail & quarantine measures before they are given to residents.
I love this idea but do not have any seniors in my life. How else can I help?

What is your Give Back donation program?
