Kristen Gold

Founder, ARISE
ARISE is the self-care gift box to nourish your loved one’s mind, body and soul so they can shine bright again. As an alternative to flowers and traditional food gift baskets, ARISE offers hand-curated products to support those grieving or burnt out. ARISE proudly supports women owned + co-owned businesses made in the US and a percentage of sales are donated to Girls, Inc. The first ARISE gift box was sent in December 2016 when Kristen Gold, our founder, wanted to support a friend who had lost a parent. Flowers, the traditional standby, didn’t feel like enough, and she was at a loss for words. Kristen wanted to send something that would comfort and support her friend through the grieving process. Having experienced the loss of a friend about a year earlier, followed by near burnout at work, she wanted to package up the self-care remedies that had worked for her during what felt like a downward spiral of hopelessness.
