About Where Bluebirds Fly

Gifts, Care Packages and Lovely Treats in the post

Where Bluebirds Fly was created to make it easy to send a beautiful gift parcel to your favorite people wherever they may be and whenever they need a little pick me up,  everything is 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.

We offer a create your own gift parcel service as we loved the idea of sending a personalised care package or gift hamper in the post but found that nowhere offered the flexibility to create your own bespoke gift package- rather they only offered ready made packages and hampers, so in 2016 we took this simple idea to the Princes Trust who thankfully loved it too and agreed to support us in helping to make our concept a reality! Since then we have received recognition from entrepreneurs, Theo Paphitis and Jacqueline Gold.

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 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 hope that you will love building your own Shoe Box style hamper  (Bluebird box) as much as your recipient will love 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 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 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, 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, fairy doors in springtime, elf doors at Christmas 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 favorite 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 someones 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- 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 absolutely love what we do, we really hope that you do too!
