Project Description

MARI encourages the self-care practice of all women and makes them feel empowered, not selfish, when they choose to take care of themselves-- even if they only have a couple of minutes.

We’ve all been there: your co-worker just had a baby, or just got engaged, is celebrating a milestone, or is going through a loss, a tough divorce or break-up...the list goes on.

We spend so much time with the people we work with-- what's an easy way to show them you care?

MARI creates meaningful gifts for women in the workplace, new mothers, best friends, and loved ones that deliver a message that we could all use more of:

self-care,

self-empowerment,

and self-love.

Each gift set is hand-wrapped and includes a crystal with healing energy. The MARI Gift Set can be incorporated into any woman's self-care routine, whether it's winding down after a long day, setting the mood for a bubble bath, supporting her spiritual/meditation practice, or encouraging "me time" during the stages of motherhood (aka exhaustion).

A MARI gift set will never go to waste-- each gift is packaged in an eco-friendly stainless steel box-- perfect for packing lunches, keepsakes, crafting tools, you name it.

MARI gift sets are co-worker appropriate but also unique, and great for hostess gifts, baby showers, or birthdays...and for random gift giving at any occasion.

I'm Frances-- an Angeleno-by-way of New York City. I honed my passion for running a company at my first venture producing luxury slippers for Saks & Barneys.

One of the biggest lessons I learned (and am still figuring out) was how to take care of myself first before being able to take care of everyone else.

We've been selling our gift boxes for some time now, and they are sold out!

I'm raising money on iFundWomen to fund our next inventory launch of gift sets so my we can continue to spread the message of self-care.

iFundwomen Founder Karen Cahn taught me that crowdfunding is the necessary step to help an early-stage entrepreneur like me get my business off the ground-- because women get only 2.5% of available venture capital funding, and women of color get just .2% of that.

I'm inviting you to join me on this journey. Thank you for your support!
