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!

What you will find on our website:

We have curated some cute little gifts, lovely food and pampering treats 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 wooden hearts and flowers to pompoms and confetti. 

We are very proud to support a number of independent and small businesses as well as 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- Who we are:

Where Bluebirds Fly is based in a beautiful village just outside of York, Where Bluebirds do indeed fly! We 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, fairy doors in springtime, elf doors at Christmas as well as mothers day, fathers day, birthday and wedding gifts! We also 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 favorite seasonal offerings! So we decided to expand on this and with a some help from the princes trust enterprise programme (they are fantastic!) and we created a website where you can send wonderful treat boxes and gift packages at anytime of the year, just to brighten up someones day!

Many of our lovely customers will already know that Where Bluebirds Fly was launched by myself- Laura, All of the handmade pieces and notecards are made/designed by me, I also curated the collection beautiful gifts that we have available to add to your gift boxes, Your gift boxes are packed by hand and posted by Laura and Ash and we also have some little helpers here in the nest- our daughter (aged 4!) 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 and is very gentle at tucking up your gifts carefully and wishing them goodnight before they head out of the nest! 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 5 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 are a family run business-  And absolutely love what we do, we really hope that you do too!
