Hi there, I’m Gemma Moore, founder of Moore Crate Occasions. Yorkshire born and bred I moved to Essex nearly a decade ago to do a 1 year maternity cover as a secondary PE teacher. I stayed at the same school until July 2019 when I had my beautiful daughter Lexi. I loved being at home with Lexi and couldn’t bear the thought of leaving her to go back to teaching full time, so I decided to take a break from teaching and start my own business.

In March 2020, I launched Moore Crates Occasions, I specialise in hand painted personalised pine crates for all sorts of occasions and storage needs. I set out to make crate gifts that celebrate a person, event or milestone in a really special way but that can then go on to serve as a practical (and decorative) storage solution.

I paint seasonal crates for Mother’s and Father’s Day, Easter and Christmas, crates for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, house warming gifts. There are crates for pets and loads for children and babies; from baby shower and keepsake birth information crates to sensory toy crates, book storage crates, toy food crates, nappy crates and art and craft crates, all in an effort to celebrate your little people whilst trying to keep their nursery or playroom tidy. If you have a particular crate in mind and I don’t already make it, I take bespoke commissions too. After 'new baby/keepsake' crates, bespoke crates are my favourite.

You can find out more and see all my crates on my website www.moorecrateoccasions.co.uk
