Looks vaguely like something The Container Store carries, although not in metallic red, or with a ribbon, as I recall.

If it's what I think it is, i.e., anything like these boxes at The Container Store, then "what makes it unique" is that it's made of a heavy, durable cardboard, is designed to remain presentably reusable for years, folds flat when not in use, and costs 3-4 times what ordinary cardboard (or even plastic!) boxes of the same size do.

Having just visited the Foldabox website, I get the feeling that if I were to go over to The Container Store on my lunch break today, and look at the boxes to which I refer, I might find a discreet "Foldabox" logo: I see things there that look like exact matches for what The Container Store carries, and I see that Foldabox has a whole "Bespoke" department that would explain not only the striped ones at The Container Store, but a number of other things I've seen there, that I've never seen anywhere else.

 

At any rate, though, my own criteria for picking gift packaging for baked goods has always been (1) cheap, and (2) reusable. (And it doesn't exactly hurt if it's also U.S.-made, like the large handle buckets I use.)

I would have expected a certain amount of rivalry between Memphis and Nashville.
