The Joyful Moose Story
Joyful Moose is located in the mountains of beautiful North Idaho. We are a family owned and operated small business.
Joyful Moose makes personalized gift items. We have grown to include an extensive product line that has something for everyone.
Why Joyful? Joyful is how we want people to feel opening a package with our items, which are perfect for Birthdays, Holidays, Weddings & Anniversaries. Many of the products come in gift boxes, and gift cards are available as well.
Why a Moose? We get much of my inspiration from the mountains and wildlife that surround our home. Moose are our favorite, and there are some that hang out in our backyard each winter.
How did Joyful Moose get started?
I have a background in graphic design and was tired of only seeing my work in digital format, so I decided to turn some of my designs into physical products. I started in 2013 with phone cases, mousepads & pet id tags. In 2014 I added coffee mugs, t-shirts and the part time help of one of my daughters. In 2015 my husband left his day job thanks to the growth Joyful Moose had, and in 2016 my other daughter & son-in-law also joined the “Joyful Moose Family” full time.
We are a family owned & operated business nestled in a small mountain valley near the Canadian border. Because we are surrounded by trees and locally harvested wood, we wanted to add a wood collection to our product line. We now make cutting boards from the finest hand selected hardwoods. We also make wood signs, wine bottle balancers, napkin & kitchen utensil holders. All of the wood items are available with custom laser engraving.
