Boston & Bale may be best known for subscription deliveries of Massachusetts-made goods, but the year-old biz also helps couples share the local love, packaging sea salts from Gloucester shores, soap handmade in Somerville, jewelry embroidered in Boston and other gifts for guests or members of the wedding party. Founder Michelle Wax offers curated boxes in themes like “food lover” or “candle and card enthusiast,” though many spouses-to-be customize their own. Bonus: A portion of each month’s proceeds goes to a Boston-area nonprofit.
