It’s been said a smell can bring back a memory and a song can transport you to a place in time.  We believe the same holds true with a gift.  A positive gifting experience creates memories that last long after the gift is received.  

We’re Katie and Lindsay - sisters and owners of Frances + McKee. We share a love for all things thoughtfully organized, freshly prepared and uniquely personable.  But even more so, we share a love for giving - birthdays, holidays, events and particularly “just because.”  It’s an act that brings joy to both the gifter and the gifted.  Our boxes are designed to offer a personal, creative touch to your gift without the necessity of driving all over town to curate these items.  Let us help you take hold of the many opportunities to brighten the days of those around you.

"Every day is a special occasion!"  - Ann Wells

... and we happen to agree!

The Meaning Behind Frances + McKee

What’s in a name?  For Frances+McKee…a little bit of everything!  

 

As sisters, our family roots run deep.  Frances and McKee serve as our given middle names, which were passed down from generations before us.  When we were still “Frances and McKee” living under one roof, we spent most of our time organizing and reorganizing our shelves, rearranging furniture and playing “store.”  In high school, we devoted 90% of our study hours to writing and rewriting notecards until we were happy with the handwriting and pen-color choice.  

 

Fast-forward 20 years and pen-color choice still matters.  We still arrange and rearrange shelves, live and die by our label makers and look for ways to insert creativity into everyday tasks.  But, instead of “playing” store, we’ve created a real one that we’d love to share with you!

 

Frances: origin - French and English; meaning - free one, to be free

McKee: origin - Irish and Scottish; meaning - generosity, joy and loyalty
