Background

Every year Debbie Macomber finds a word to motivate her, and this year's word--"joy"--inspired her latest venture, the Debbie Macomber Blessings Box. Debbie wanted to find another way to spread joy to all her fans, and so PLM partnered with Zinepak and Debbie Macomber Inc. to curate a specially crafted gift box containing items meant to be a blessing to her fans and inspire others.

Goals

  • Create a limited edition gift box on behalf of Debbie for her super fans
  • Use the gift box to continue extending Debbie Macomber's brand beyond publishing 


Development 

Debbie Macomber strives to recognize and appreciate the blessings in her life. Debbie wanted to share the feeling of joy with her fans, and so the PLM team worked with Debbie and her team to develop the idea for the Blessings Box. 

To create the Blessings Box, PLM executives Emily Sweet, Andrea Mai, and Alex Greene introduced Debbie Macomber Inc. to ZinePak, a company known for connecting brands with their fans in innovative and exciting ways. Zinepak then worked with both teams to find vendors and brands, and then ultimately products that best fit Debbie and what her fans are looking for.
