Just in time for the holiday season, Kink Weekly will be presenting Product Spotlights on new and favorite kink/BDSM related items. Below, Mistress sky tells us about Bound Boxes. We are also offering a Bound box as the giveaway this week. Enjoy!-anniebear
Bound Boxes creates beautiful gift boxes and baskets with a kinky theme. Our boxes contain only the finest bath and beauty products made by craftspeople from the kink community. Every box tells a story and includes a kinky toy or other surprise. Bound Boxes: gifts created by kinky people for kinky people.
Ever want to give a gift that definitely has a kink vibe to it but isn’t the all too obvious impact implement? Bound Boxes is a new business that has the intention of designing beauty that’s reflective of our various BDSM cultures. So, it made sense to go to the makers and craftspeople within our kink communities. They, like you and me, are alive with kink sensibilities and real passion.
Bound Boxes seemed like just the right name for our gift boxes since the first thing of interest is the decorative rope knots that I create. I am a rigger, a rope bondage top. A year ago I began to experiment with hemp cord tied on a box with the idea of mimicking the ties that I was accustomed to using on the human body. Imagine for yourself a classic diamond design down your own torso. Now switch that rope image to the surface of a rectangular black paper box. Same diamonds. I do box knots. I do suspension ties on little boxes. Imagine. Or, go and see for yourself here.
Picture little black boxes made of recycled paper. On the inside there is folded tissue paper holding a lotion, a generous bar of hemp soap or two, maybe bath treats or a Man Bomb. All of these use only natural ingredients. Most items are presented in cloth sacks. On the bottom is a special little gauze gift bag that contains a surprise kinky toy. Who doesn’t like a surprise that will make you smile? On the outside that wonderful black box is tied in rope, usually hemp cord. These are my own designs that I think will put the gift receiver in mind of rope bondage on the body. At least one single item gets tied up as well. When you go to the site, give yourself a self-directed treasure hunt and find the Bound Lingam. We haven’t stopped laughing at ourselves for coming up with that one.
We are kinky people crafting for kinky people. Our tagline is “natural bath products with a kinky surprise.” Our crafters are hardworking folks running home businesses. A single business, Fat Kat Kinky Soaps and Candles, turns out high quality lotions, soaps, massage oil bars, shampoo bars, and bath salts. A variety of makers supply Bound Boxes with little toys like stingers and mini floggers. One maker creates small simple jewelry like collar tags, key chains, and charms. Our Big Bound Box—isn’t that a fun name?—gracefully shows off some larger special gifts: we have three types of wooden paddles made by The Paddle Guy of Connecticut and two soft floggers made by Lady Betty of Massachusetts. They sell their items on Etsy or via their own websites. Bound Boxes provides additional advertising for them all through the year. Kinky people for kinky people.
Bound Boxes has an attractive, easy-to-navigate website with general categories like Mistress, Master, Littles, Just Kinky, Submissive or Slave, Build a Box. However, each box is created by me for the person I am imagining using the products: the Mistress is strong, firm, precise in her actions, thoughtful, makes her decisions with great care, guiding. She bathes and ritualistically cleanses her soul in preparation for new responsibilities and new adventures.
Bound Boxes are terrific gifts for any kind of special event such as collaring ceremonies, weddings, award programs, contests, and holiday parties. Bound Boxes belong in private homes, BDSM clubs, and other public places. We have an Aftercare Box to take with you for public or private play parties. Bed & Breakfast establishments can benefit from offering a Bound Box in their guest rooms. We do custom boxes. We make baskets, too. It is entirely possible that a wider customer base than those who identify as kinky might enjoy our sophisticated little boxes, as well. That would be a good thing.
We are interested in your ideas for new Bound Boxes. Tell us what kind of box theme is appropriate in your life or among your friends. We’ve already been asked to create boxes specific to the slave mindset. We’re working on it. Visit us here. We’re on Facebook; you can leave your ideas there. Or, send your requests to me, Mistress Sky, firstname.lastname@example.org.
