Our story

The story of SmileTick is a story of Connection.
During covid pandemic, my best friend got sick and I could not be there. We were trying to send something for being “there” for her when we couldn’t be physically. We wanted something personal, presentable and with intentional products that were simple to send. However, we did not find it, so we built it — our first GIFT BOX.
My friend loved it and felt cheered when she received the special box and asked if I can build some gift boxes for her employees who all work from home and hope the boxes help boost employee morale and strengthen the bond. As we explored this need, we discovered that others also wanted a pandemic-friendly and seamless gifting experience.
Then we founded SmileTick in 2020 with the mission to make it easy to help people stay connected to those who matter most.
