About us



Brown Paper Packages is an independent gifting company that was founded by Helen O'Callaghan in 2016. What started as a hospital gift box for her younger brother, admitted to hospital with Crohn’s disease, grew into a care package gift company shipping gifts worldwide. The Brown Paper Packages team has shipped tens of thousands of individual Brown Paper Packages and continues to strive for the highest service to spread the message of support and wellbeing across the UK and globally. 

Having left a busy career in 2016 working in well-known fashion brands Helen created the Brown Paper Packages vision on her kitchen table. Since then it has gone from strength to strength where Helen has been able to use her expertise to provide a gifting service for companies and charities to reach remote staff and those in need of support with a physical gift. The team at Brown Paper Packages offers a bespoke service to businesses wanting to send sustainable gifts and wellbeing gifts to staff. 

"Life can be so serious and so sad, so I wanted to fill each gift box with a beautiful collection of positive and inspiring gifts. A Brown Paper Package should be a box to make someone smile and benefit the recipient practically and positively.”
