Hey there! Welcome to By Araa. We are a gifting service based in the Northwest of England that specialises in curating exquisite gift designs for corporate events, client appreciation, weddings and any special moment life has to offer. We know how daunting It can be to find the perfect gift that tells your story, one that delivers the unique experience for both you the giver and the recipient.
Thats why we're here!
Adunni Akinduro our founder started her curating journey back in 2013 with her bridal proposal gifts, she has since then done welcome gift boxes for friends and familiy and soon recognised the need for this business.
Our gifting experience starts right from unboxing to enjoying the actual content. We love to support local and small businesses so we source our products that are aesthetically pleasing but also deliver in functionality. Each box is accompanied by a hand-written note that can be personalised to suit.
I am Adunni Akinduro, wife of a Medical Doctor and run enthusiast, mum of two great kids (Kiki and Jomi) and Pippa our cute pom, tv series Junkie (name it, I’ve seen it) and lover of all things pretty.
I founded By Araa (coined after my daughter’s middle name Araoluwa) whilst on maternity leave and during the 2020 Covid 19 pandemic. For a long time I had been curating gift boxes for friends and family events but also noticed there was a need for the business here in the UK and took the plunge to start the business. When I’m not designing boxes I work as a Project Controls Manager in the Energy sector.
We are always up for a new challenge.
