Brown Paper Packages was born in 2016; my younger brother was admitted to hospital with Crohn’s disease and I found myself searching for a 'care package' to lift his spirits. I searched and searched, but I couldn't find anything that seemed appropriate. There were many people in my life at this time who would have also benefited from a package to make them smile.
Having left my busy career in fashion 1 year prior to become a full time mum, I found myself determined to create a positive gift package for those in need of a 'life lift'. I set to work on my first box. The criteria was simple, a box that would make someone smile and would benefit the recipient in a practical and positive way.
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.
