Bookblock Guide to Sending the Perfect Care Package

For the times that you can’t be there, a care package is the perfect thinking of you gift. Let your loved ones know how much you care with a custom gift box filled with goodies from the world’s greatest designers. Whether it’s a leaving gift for a friend or a simple reminder of home, our care package gift guide has everything you need to find thoughtful gifts for any occasion. We’ll even pack them by hand and deliver them straight to their door.

A keepsake

Every good care package needs a memento. Whether you’re wishing farewell to a colleague or sending home comforts to a student in distress, nothing says you care like a keepsake. Our personal favourite is Flora Lane’s Calming Room mist. This aromatherapy mist is made from a blend of essential oils including lavender and sicilian orange. A few sprays of this on a blanket or pillow and they’ll feel right at home wherever they are.


Something comfy

A hug is something you can’t send in the post. But we’ve got the next best thing. Add a little cosiness to your care package with a huggably soft pair of socks. Crafted from 70% cotton and 20% spandex for that extra comfy fit, these stylish tri-colour socks are the perfect gift for cosying up in Autumn, Winter or Spring! Knitted with each colour in a different stitch (cable knit, ribbed and herringbone) they’re smart with warm tones and a soft finish. Match the socks with a scented candle and a good book, and voilà, there’s the perfect evening in.


A perfect cuppa

There’s nothing quite like a good cup of tea. But when it comes to a care package, only the best brew will do. That’s why our favourite has to be our BODY Organic Tea & Herbal Blend. Containing chamomile and marshmallow, each ingredient from Mersin, Turkey, brings its own benefits to the mind, body and soul. The camomile aids sleep and digestion, as well as being full of antioxidants. While the marshmallow contains antioxidants that help treat stomach ulcers and digestive issues. The perfect thinking of you gift, it’s a must for any care package.


Something nourishing

After a lovely cup of tea, your care package needs a little self-care. And the good folks at Leende certainly know their stuff. Their lavender moisturising cream is enriched with Vitamin E and medical lavender oil to help nourish your skin, while relaxing your should with its gentle scent. Add a tub to your care package and let your loved ones savour those relaxing scents. Ideal for him and her, it makes a fabulous leaving gift for friends.


Something sweet

No care package is complete without a touch of sweetness, is it? But rather than a bog-standard pack of biscuits, take a look at our Gluten-Free Stem Ginger Biscuits, made in the UK just for us. They’re deliciously warm and tasty, with a blend of spices and crystallised stem ginger making them full of flavour, crisp and crumbly. 100% vegan and completely gluten-free, they’re suitable for everyone. We can’t think of a better way to show them how much you care.
