Make Hay, Sunshine: Beautiful gifting of fresh seasonal fruit boxes with a floral flourish

March 16, 2022

Brilliant berries at their prime, juicy citrus fruits that couldn't be fresher, carefully sourced from throughout the globe, brimming beautifully with fragrant flowers in pinewood boxes for thoughtful gifts: Make Hay, Sunshine has become one of Malaysia's fastest-growing purveyors of designer fruit box deliveries, thanks to its pursuit of perfection in produce and presentation.

Make Hay, Sunshine began as a family-run business for imported whole foods in 2020; it now focuses on imported fruit boxes with exquisite floral arrangements, plus bouquets and other gift sets that make a memorably bright, cheerful statement.

Everything in the box embraces the harvest of the earth - from ripe fruits of the vine that hail from as far as South America to real dried wheat, eucalyptus, caspia leaves and green bedding fillers that adorn the sets, meticulously trimmed from the branch on the morning of delivery. There's nothing artificial to Make Hay, Sunshine's allure.

Make Hay, Sunshine remains a resolutely family business that has evolved naturally. Mom was formerly a florist known for her tasteful compositions back in the 1990s. Her two daughters now focus on in-house creative media and managing order fulfillments, while their two brothers handle the e-commerce tech and marketing. Their current team of ten works in a Bandar Utama space filled with plants, ribbons, stationery and other supplies. 

After selling thousands of gift boxes, Make Hay, Sunshine has fine-tuned the configurations of what customers love best. On busy days, it sends out over 100 boxes, packed to bursting with mindfully chosen imported fruits of fine quality, such as large Korean strawberries and premium fruit varietals that are perfect for special occasions. With a 4.8-star Google review rating, it's clear that Make Hay, Sunshine has numerous happy patrons.

Fruit supplies come in everyday, consistently boxed and sent out within one or two days. All fruits are painstakingly checked - if a bunch of grapes is blemished or overripe, it won't be packaged but will be consumed by the team and their families, curbing food wastage. 

Gifting is made as fuss-free as possible, with delivery anywhere in KL & Selangor. Recipients are contacted before delivery to ensure the fruits arrive at their fresh peak. Recipients can keep and reuse the sturdy wooden boxes for their household needs.
