When we launched in 2014, our packages were all created as gifts for new mums. Our aim was to make the recipient feel looked after and encouraged to take ten minutes for themselves. Very quickly our customers saw the thoughtfulness of these packages and wanted to send them for lots of occasions – get well, bereavement, birthdays and any time someone deserved some TLC.
As the business has grown, we have had customers asking if they can tweak packages to make it just right for the recipient. Being thoughtful is at the centre of everything we do, so we created this package so our products can be put together in any combination.
