Throughout various times in my life, when I have been battling mental illness, grief, setbacks with my health or just desperately in need of a friend to reach out and let me know I’m not alone, I have been truly grateful to receive a care package in the post to give me a much needed boost. Care packages come in all shapes and sizes and can be as simple as a box of chocolates or an extravagant hamper, and yet for those of us who live busy lives, or live some distance away from our loved ones, it’s great to have a service such as Kiss My Parcel to create something bespoke, unique, hand picked and filled with unique and quality gifts.
Kiss My Parcel is a care package with a difference: modern, quirky, creative, beautifully packaged and personalised, and there is quite literally something for every occasion – the good and bad.
The website is super easy to navigate with six categories to make searching for the perfect package even easier – thinking of you, well being, special occasion, away from home, youth and students, seasonal packages and, of course, a bespoke service for those wanting something unique for someone special. Under each category you will find care packages for every eventuality – cancer, bereavement, a new baby, student survival, a hospital stay and coming of age, just to name a few.
With our holiday approaching I was interested to review the Student Gap Year Travel care package which, although perfect for students broadening their horizons, is just as suitable for those going on holiday this Summer. Ordering is really easy and, even better, you can add a personalised gift card, sealed with an authentic wax stamp, if you are sending the package as a present.
Our parcel arrived the following day, with free next day delivery, and was well packaged to ensure the care package arrived in perfect condition. I was so excited to see what was inside!
Inside of the care package are the following items:
- Water-to-Go 3in1 Water Filter Bottle
- Macks Dreamweaver Blackout Eye Mask
- Travel Anti Bacterial Hand Gel
- Summit Travel Torch
- Vintage Styled Plain Paper Journal
- Mosquito Repellent and Relief Pens
- Summit Keyring Cash Stash
- Take A Break’s Mini Puzzle Mix Collection
- Kiss My Parcel Pen
- Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes
- Pits & Bits Towel Off Shampoo (no water required)
- Zappit Mosquito bite relief
- Dr Beckmann Non-Bio Clothes Travel Wash
- Lightload Travel Towels
- Wallet Ninja
- Solotrekk First Aid Travel Pack
- Simpkins Mixed Fruits Travel Sweets
- Go Travel Uk Worldwide 3-in-1 Travel Adapter
It is evident from each package that Kiss My Parcel have thought of absolutely everything, even down to the small details such as mosquito spray pens and handy travel wash, as well as some lovely luxury items such as the leather bound travel journal and the Water-to-go drinks bottle.
With the care package costing £79.99 I have to admit that should you buy each item individually, there is no denying the cost would be lower. That said, the time and effort that would go into sourcing and buying each item individually would be marginally more. And so, for ease of use, it is a great idea for those wanting to buy a complete care package to send to a loved one.
For anyone looking to treat someone special to a personalised care package, I can’t recommend Kiss My Parcel enough. To view all of their packages and find out more visit their website www.kissmyparcel.co.uk. For 10% off purchases use code fivelittledoves at the checkout.
