To learn more about Noobie Box, we spoke with Jiska Smits, the company’s co-founder. For someone unfamiliar with Noobie Box, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Noobie Box is a celebrative welcome gift — free of cost — that delivers comfort, confidence and excitement. Noobie Box is beautifully designed and filled with carefully selected high-quality products, valuable coupons, and important health information to support women through the precious first days, weeks, and months of motherhood.
Our mission is to offer all moms-to-be in the US a celebrative moment in their pregnancy and promote a good and healthy start for all these moms and their babies by providing a complimentary, carefully curated gift box.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then? Noobie Box is founded by European women, Steffanie, Renske & Charlotte. In Europe – and more countries in the world – the concept of a free pregnancy gift box has been established many years ago. We met each other in New York, where we live with our families. As new moms living in the US, we missed the free box experience. The arrival of a special box filled with products and information, which marked the beginning of our own motherhood journey.
During coffee dates and play dates with the kids we found a shared desire and decided to start Noobie Box. Since we launched Noobie Box end of 2015, Noobie boxes are available for moms-to-be NY Metro area. End of 2016 we added Philly and Boston area, and in the last couple of months we’ve expanded to all states in the Northeast.
