Local Folk

An Uff Da Box is great way to get to know your neighbors. No hotdish needed!

Our Story

The Uff Da Box was created to be a fun adventure.  It was founded by Nimble Impressions, a full-service marketing agency in White Bear Lake, MN.  Born during the 2020  Covid pandemic as way to help promote local businesses.  

We wanted to use our time, talents, and connections to spotlight the rich business diversity in and around our community.  As a creative agency we are well-suited for this type of concept.  The UFF DA phrase was perfect!  Without even thinking too hard there are so many fun ways to play with that phrase and spark the creative juices.  Since we do design, create custom packaging, and get swag for many clients, this was a natural fit.

A magical combination of a good cause, creative outlet, and a fun concept is what created the Uff Da Box.  

We know first hand how challenging it can be for any business to gain attention and promote their business.  Items in the Uff Da Box are mindfully curated to stay true to the purpose.  They need to meet at least 1 of 3 criteria:

  1. Local
  2. Uff Da! phrase inspired
  3. Fun
  1. Local
  2. Uff Da! phrase inspired
  3. Fun

We are overtly bias to small, artisanal, and craft brands.  These are often the folk that spend 99% of their amazing time and energy just making the goods they try to sell.  Therefore, our hope is to find those items and let them shine in our boxes. 

It’s so much fun playing on the Uff Da! name.  Therefore, when appropriate we will include nifty items that embody the namesake.  Thankfully, most Uff Da inspired items come from the homeland.  

We thank you for exploring our boxes and supporting our participating businesses.  

The Uff Da Box is the perfect gift.  Whether you are from Minnesota or surrounding states, love for local culture is everywhere.  The Uff Da spirit is friendly and welcoming. 

The box concept was born in White Bear Lake Minnesota.  As a result, many items are found in close proximity to the hometown.  However, we want the box to be appealing to people across Minnesota and the country.  Every item in the box can be enjoyed regardless of where you hail from.  

How do you spell Uff Da.  Well, there seems to be a few different ways.  We prefer Uff Da with a space.  Uffda with no space.  Uf Da.  Oof Da.    

A major source of inspiration was to draw attention to local businesses.  Big name brands have a time and place, but so do the small businesses.  However, those businesses often don’t have the budget or time to gain the attention of the masses.  The Uff Da Box gives these great local businesses another place to be seen, tried, and liked.  

We consider this one of the best Minnesota gift giving experiences.  We have award winning products from proud business owners.  It has a wonderful place in main holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Beyond that it can always make for a great birthday gift, house warming present, party gift, anniversary gift, and so many more.  It can also be used as a business gift.  With many businesses seeking unique ways to thank clients at traditional times, nothing says unique like and Uff Da Box.  Additionally, it is a great gift option for employers to give employees, and co-workers to give each other.  Just think of how great it would be to receive an Uff Da Box as a Secret Santa gift.

It’s pretty trendy to be a fan of the Midwest and have a Minnesota identity.  Many brands are emerging using words like Sota and doing a great job of promoting our great state.  We would like to explore all types of options for the box.  They would include clothing, hats, gloves, headwear, apparel, bottle openers, key chains, candles, patches, cookie cutters, holiday ornaments, and many other options.  

There is so much potential and fun to have with the concept. You betcha we’ll continue to focus on reflecting the pride of our great state and this region of the country.
