Story No. 9 is a Danish online gift shop founded by Nhi Do in November 2017. But its story goes way back.
Growing up, Nhi was always afraid to say “I love you”, or be the first one to say the words. In 2012, she experienced her very first heartbreak. With so many feelings stuck inside, she found comfort in art to express her emotions. This inspired the creation of the matchbox characters, Nidos & Co.
Love found Nhi again in 2014. This time, she was determined to get better at expressing her feelings towards her significant other. The search for a meaningful gift began. Guided by her artistic hands and by her love for him, Nhi began to create a personal gift book with her own drawings. The gift book illustrated 9 caring actions which she would do for him as an alternative, yet creative means to say “I love you”. Needless to say, the gift was well-received. It was unique, thoughtful and personal.
This joyful experience encouraged her to embark on a start-up journey to help others who are looking for a meaningful, yet affordable, personalised way of gift-giving.
Ever since, she began working with other creative souls worldwide to build an artistic universe. Driven by a vision to become global leading gift-giving expert, recognized for personal touch and creativity – the entire Story Team is on a mission of creating happiness and ongoing surprises, and to celebrate love in any kind.
The rest is ... Story No. 9. Watch Love Story
Story No. 9 was founded by Nhi Do from the scratch - literally. After 3 years, she managed to find a passionate team of talented artists. Together, they have a dream of creating something extraordinary. With help from the rest of the Story Team – Story No. 9 consists of quality books for a fair price, because we want happiness to be affordable for everyone – again and again! Imagination has no limits for the upcoming gift books :)
After 13 years of making customers happy within a broad service field, it was time to become a visionary entrepreneur with eyes on the stars and feet on the ground

When we first reached out for the UIG team, asking for an artistic universe, they were crazy enough to take this task. Let’s put it this way, the creation of Story No. 9’s website has not been an easy task. It’s actually been a rollercoaster of joy and challenges – and therefore not a task for any web designers… only the fearless ones.
