Lori Greiner chats about Today’s Special Value


Lori Greiner American homeware designer Lori Greiner is back with her famous initial jewellery box as Today’s Special Value. She took some time out of her hectic schedule to talk to QGossip about her successful range. 

The initial jewellery box is a great personalised gift. Who would this make the ideal gift for?

It would make a great gift for anybody because it is universally appealing. Women love it because it is beautiful and functional for their jewellery. For kids it is perfect for as a first jewellery box, and even makes a great gift for men as a paperweight. 

It’s ideal for friends, teachers, beauticians, doctors as a thank you, because it is soo pretty, substantial in weight and good quality, making it a gift you would be proud to give and they will feel you spent a lot more on.

How did you come up with its design?

Lori Greiner initial jewellery box 757946 I had been making some beautiful silver-plated jewellery boxes lined with my safekeeper anti-tarnish lining for several years and they were all very popular. Then one day a member of my team said “we should make them in initials” and I did! So, next I had to create my own font style that would be universally appealing and I think they came out beautifully. 


What makes your products stand out?

I try hard to make products that really help people. Many of my products help solve everyday problems we all have like jewellery, make-up, clothing and handbag storage.

You create such a wide range of products. What’s your inspiration?

I find my inspiration comes from problems I run into in everyday. Also, in noticing problems my friends or family have, that is a great starting point for my inspirations. Sometimes things just come to me – pop into my head out of the blue. It’s crazy, but it’s true.

What's your favourite product out of your whole range?

Oh boy, I like and use soo many! I cannot say just one but I love my mirror jewellery cabinet, my cosmetic organisers, my handbag organisers, and of course my initial boxes which people LOVE to get as gifts.
