Thoughtfully Introduces Gift baskets just in Time for the Holidays

Thursday, December 1, over 30 guests met at Cecconi’s Italian restaurant in West Hollywood to attend a celebration dinner in honor of ultimate gift giving destination “Thoughtfully.”

The company which was founded by Modern Gourmet Foods owner, Boaz Shonfeld, creates hand crafted gift boxes with categories ranging from Him, Her, Holiday, Food and Bar, Birthday, Celebrate, Housewarming and Thank You.

“Each gift box is created with unique inspiration and arrives with an accompanying story for its recipient to enjoy, making it the perfect gifting option for the astounding 73 percent of shoppers who are seeking alternative ways to shop and opting for items that offer a more personal touch,” said the company.


The Thoughtfully experience allows giftee’s to enjoy their gift baskets long after the holiday wrapping paper has been torn to pieces, birthday balloons been popped and Christmas trees have been thrown out.

One of their more popular gifting items include, “The Good Hurt Fuego” hot sauce collection set, and the “Saints and Sinner” whiskey set.


Thoughtfully has an affiliation and partnership with brands such as Godiva, Starbucks, Corona and more.

Shonfeld was inspired to launch “Thoughtfully” after passion for food, love, travel, and culture.

According to the company, “Shonfeld journeyed around the world collecting mementos and creating memories to curate a unique collection of souvenirs and memorabilia, each with a distinct story, all of which he soon realized made for a thoughtful gift.”

Shonfeld describes the baskets as unique and different from every other gift basket company.

“When you get the gift boxes, it has no meaning, no feeling, no soul and no connection and you are like ‘oh my God, what am I going to do with that?’” said Shonfeld. “And there is no correlation. You get this big box and you have to break things apart and you have all of this tape. Then you open the box, and there are only two cookies inside, so I said to myself, this is not the way.”


According to Shonfeld, Thoughtfully will release a new set of 39 gift baskets every year until the company has a catalog long enough to deliver.

“The site released three weeks ago, we see every single day maybe 34 percent growth. So we see that the costumers love it and that they are engaged in our story and what we believe in.
