“For it is in giving that we receive.”
― Francis of Assisi
I loved the joy on my friend’s face when she opened her Konenkii box. Sue LaFauce and I have been friends since our college days. We’ve gone through many ups and downs over the years, confiding in each other at every turn. Friendships like that are priceless. So when Jan Craige Singer and Sarah White offered me the opportunity to review the Konenkii summer box, I asked if I could give it to Sue.
But of course, they said.
That’s exactly the premise they’ve based their company on, the gift of giving. Giving to yourself, giving to others.
The gift boxes are just the beginning of the company; there’s more to Konenkii’s vision of inspiring and empowering women: connection is next. Jan and Sarah plan to use Konenkii as a platform to bring women together to share experiences and celebrate their lives. They’re passionately driven to redefining aging, something we do here at Growing Bolder.
“Passion is deep within you, no one else can know how it works for you,” Sarah explained. “It is feeling so strongly about something that you want to follow that dream.”
“Passion is about searching, it’s about never being satisfied,” Jan said. “I know it sounds like the opposite of what many people say about passion, but if you’re satisfied, it means you’re inert. for me, passion is constantly exploring. You’re in the flow–you get lost in it.”
It is that very passion that finds Jan and Sarah spending hours searching for just the right gifts to put in each box every quarter. They want every box to be opened with anticipation, wonder, and yes, passion, too.

Jan and Sarah also surprised me with a summer box of my own. I had just returned from Austria and was kicking myself for not buying a scarf while I was out there. I was looking for something free-flowing and casual, something that would go with blue jeans. I found one at a shop and intended to go back to get it, but we didn’t make it back to that shop.
So when I pulled out the first item from the box, my mouth fell wide open–it was a beautiful cream and blue scarf! I was so excited that I had to share it on social media, even though Sue hadn’t yet opened her box.
Finally, Sue and I were able to mesh our schedules and meet up so that I could see her open the Konenkii box. Sue also went right for the scarf the minute she opened the box. I think the joy on her face mimics the same that I felt when I opened mine! Take a look: She Loves the Scarf! We also found delicious cookies, inspirational postcards (with the stamp on them!), a plant in a shell (really!), body butter (don’t eat this one!), a zippered bag, and more.
