Your goal: You know that in the product world, Christmas is the equivalent of the Olympics and the Super Bowl in one, and you want to make this holiday season your most sane, most profitable, and most amazing ever.

I’m so excited to Crush Christmas with you this year! Doors are always open!


Ready for your most profitable holiday season ever?

(without the all-nighters and overwhelm!)

Let's do this!

The holiday season isn’t for the faint of heart. 

This year, let’s make this your most profitable holiday season ever, with a step-by-step marketing guide from Sept – Dec, all of our best Black Friday tricks to maximize profits and front-load sales, our exact strategy to find, attract and convert corporate clients, and lots, lots more!

This year, let’s skip: buying tons of inventory (then worrying that you’ll be carrying it foreverrrr), staying up all night, hoping corporate clients find you… because you’re not really sure how to find them and running out of everything and shutting your site down on 5 December

Hi, I’m Torrance.

Hi there! I’m Torrance, founder of Teak & Twine, a specialty gift box company that I launched back in 2015. Every year I’m amazed at how much of our annual sales we do between October- January: it’s an amazing time of year but it’s also really tough!

Over the past few years, my team and I have got Christmas down to a science. We’ve nailed the sweet spot between buying too much inventory and too little, figured out how to market to new clients and reach out to past customers, and learned how to assemble an amazing seasonal team that is straight #squadgoals!

In 2018, we put our systems to the test: we moved into a new warehouse in November AND I had a baby on December 15th!

In 2019, we launched this course, practiced exactly what we preached, and had almost a 7-figure holiday season, tripling our 2018 holiday revenue (eep!).

Not only that, but we did it while spending (most) dinners with our family, staying sane and best of all, having fun! 🙂

$387: Is it worth it?

When it comes to making decisions about Teak & Twine- there’s only one metric I care about: return on investment (ROI) which is the fancy way of asking: “Will this investment make me more money than it costs me?”

I’ve built this course with this in mind: making sure I packed every lesson with tangible ways to save money and ways to generate profit that work.

I’m so sure that the ROI is there on this course that I’ve included a 14 day money back guarantee. If you put the elements of this course into practice (it only works if you do!) and you don’t get results- you get your money back!

If you have any questions or would like to chat with a member of our team, please reach out to, and we’ll get back to you within one business day.

what people are saying



When does Crushing Christmas begin?


Right now! Or any time you want to dig in! There’s so much you can be doing all year to prepare for the holiday season, but September or early October (at the latest!) is really the best time to start applying what you’ll learn in Crushing Christmas.


How long is this course?


There are four FULL modules, covering inventory, marketing, manning and corporate orders (see all the details above!). Most students say they have enjoyed working through the material over a few weeks. But you might prefer to complete the course faster or one small bite at a time. You’re welcome to work at your own pace… I just recommend trying to finish earlier in the holiday season, rather than later! Either way, once you purchase the course, you’ll have lifetime access, so you can revisit the lessons year after year, if you’d like.


I sell products that aren’t gift boxes. Can I still benefit from this course?


Yes! My experience is based on selling gift boxes– and there are definitely some gift box specific terms I use in this course. However, there’s tons of value for our product-maker and shop-owner friends, too.


What if I already know everything you talk about in this course?


We’ve had more than 150 students take Crushing Christmas and tell us how much they learned! We think there’s something in this course for everyone. If you’re not sure, jump in and see! You’ll have 14 days to request a refund if you don’t find Crushing Christmas to be value-packed.


I heard there’s a Facebook group for this course, but I haven’t found any details on this page about it. Will I be able to connect with other students?


We don’t have a Facebook group specifically for Crushing Christmas students, but we hope you’ll join us in the Gift Box Babes Facebook page (if you’re not already a member!) for community and to connect with other Gift Box Business owners. You can always reach out to us at, too, with any questions about the course!
