Celebrating The Highlights Of 2016


The New Year arrived with a bang, and we’re filled with excitement for the year ahead. 2016 was an action-packed year for the CoCo Loves family, and we’d like to thank our customers, sellers and stockists for their untiring support. We think you’ll be delighted with some of the plans we have in the pipeline for the coming months…

Before January runs away with us, let us take a time out to reflect on some of the highlights that made 2016 our best year yet:

Visit to 10 Downing Street

Since we first opened our virtual doors, CoCo Loves has been extremely active in the startup community. This was recognised in the most humbling way possible when we were invited to Number 10 in February. We joined a host of other ventures from the West Midlands to have our say on the issues affecting small businesses.

You can read all about it here.

 CoCo Loves 1st birthday

Last year also marked an important milestone in the business, as we celebrated our first birthday. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in a matter of months, thanks to the overwhelming support of our friends, customers and followers. We’re already looking ahead to our 2nd birthday, so watch out for the celebrations in due course!

 Theo Paphitis #SBS Award

We draw heaps of inspiration from successful entrepreneurs, so it was an honour to gain recognition from none other than Theo Paphitis in his Small Business Sunday Twitter awards. We can’t wait to meet him at the #SBS event in February… stay tuned to hear about how we get on!

30k followers on Instagram

Twitter isn’t the only platform where we’ve been making waves. Last year, we also passed the 30,000 follower milestone on Instagram. We love sharing our creations with the world, as well as feel-good photos and quotes. So if you’re in need of a social media pick-me-up, be sure to give us a follow.

Our first CoCo Loves party

CoCo Loves Agent

Last year, we even branched out into parties! As we begin building our network of CoCo Loves agents, our unique gift shop will be popping up at events over the coming year. We kicked things off with our first party a few months ago, and it was a huge success. Fancy getting involved? We’re always looking for new agents to join our team! Become a CoCo Loves agent.

We told you it had been an exciting year… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re busy scheming on some fantastic plans for 2017, including a host of new sellers who will be adding to our range of stunning personalised gifts, made in Britain.
