Care Packages, Treats and Gifts in the Post

Where Bluebirds Fly- What we do

Send a beautiful hand packed gift parcel through the post to your favourite people wherever they may be and whenever they need a little pick me up, (we can send your gift anywhere in the UK or Overseas) . All our gifts are packaged with care and wrapped by hand, you can even choose some beautiful finishing touches to add to your gift package so it arrives at their door looking wonderful.

Where Bluebirds Fly is an online independent gift shop based in North Yorkshire! We really care about gifts and love finding uniquely special items that really do show how much thought and care has gone into selecting them, so we have curated some wonderful things we can be sure to make people smile. The majority of our gifts come from UK independent businesses, Small scale designer makers and Fairtrade suppliers overseas, so not only have they been made and designed with a lot of love and care your purchase is also helping to make a difference to small independent businesses. We offer a create your own gift parcel service so you can send a personalised care package or gift hamper in the post with flexibility to create your own bespoke gift tailored to your loved ones.

In 2016 Where Bluebirds Fly was launched with help from the Princes Trust and since then we have received recognition from entrepreneurs, Theo Paphitis and Jacqueline Gold!

We hope that you will love building your own Shoe Box style hamper  (Bluebird box) as much as your recipient will love opening their own carefully created care package. Our care packages make a very charming gift with a traditional feel, perfect for those times when you need to send a little pick me up gift package,  or just to let someone know that you care and are thinking about them!  We believe a tailor made gift box filled with treats selected just for them is guaranteed to brighten up their day! 


What is a care package?

Care Packages are traditionally cardboard boxes sent in the post to friends and relatives away from home, full of goodies that may be hard to come by- popular with parents who's children have left for university or families of armed forces serving overseas- however we think that anyone can benefit from a little surprise!

Send a Birthday gift box, Retirement gift package,  Get well soon care package, Wedding, Anniversary or New home gift package, a care package for New parents, Mother’s Day gift box, Father’s Day gift, Hospital get well soon care package or a box full of gifts and treats for students to help them with their revision. Or you could even send a gift for no particular reason other than to say “I love you”, “I’m thinking of you”,  “I miss you” or "I am sending you a big hug and squeeze" -What we are trying to say is that our gift and care packages really are perfect for every occasion.

What you will find on our website:

We have curated some thoughtful gifts, lovely food and pampering treats from both small and large UK businesses to pop in your parcel, you can tailor the style of your gift box with gifts to fit their personality, from luxury pamper items and sweet treats to witty books and gifts and lovely finishing touches from full gift wrapping to a small sprinkling of wooden hearts, pompoms and rose petals. 

We are very proud to support a number of UK independent and small businesses as well as some princes trust launched businesses and as such you will find some beautiful products made with a lot of love, care and passion. Here at Where Bluebirds Fly we also sell our own handmade items perfect if you are looking for a unique and very special gift.

Where Bluebirds Fly was launched with support from the Princes Trust and is a winner of the SBS award (chosen by Theo Paphitis himself- from BBC's dragons den!) We were also picked by Jacqueline Gold as a #WOW award winner for our Gift packages!

Where Bluebirds Fly-

Our Story:

Where Bluebirds Fly is based in a beautiful village just outside of York, UK Where Bluebirds do indeed fly!

We first launched back in 2014 making handmade gifts, each featuring a little Bluebird hidden somewhere in the design, we also made seasonal handmade gifts throughout the year, as well as mothers day, fathers day, birthday and wedding gifts! We introduced our Christmas 'Cardboard Box gift Package' at Christmas time, full of lovely gifts and treats that can be enjoyed as a family and we must admit that this was one of our favourite seasonal offerings! So we decided to expand on this but wished to offer the flexibility to create your own gift.

So with support from the princes trust enterprise programme (they are fantastic!) and we created our website where you can send wonderful treat boxes and gift packages at anytime of the year, just to brighten up someone’s day!

Where Bluebirds Fly was launched by myself- Laura and I also make all of the handmade 'Where Bluebirds Fly' range of gifts and curated the collection beautiful gifts that we have available to add to your gift boxes which are all packed by hand. Where Bluebirds Fly is now a family run business and sometimes we also have some extra little helpers here in the nest too- our daughter (aged 5!) enjoys helping to wrap and pack your gifts, she loves seeing seeing what gifts are leaving our nest each day and wholeheartedly agrees that when you send chocolate you have made the right choice- of course! She is also an absolute pro with the sticky tape, brilliant at adding pompoms and wooden hearts to your packages! Our son will also help out with the post runs and packing when he finds time in his busy schedule, but as I am sure you can imagine being 6 years old, attending school and being a part time superhero (shh that bit is a secret!) takes up a lot of his time!

So that is our flock of Bluebirds! We absolutely love what we do, we really hope that you do too!
