Gift giving is hard. There are only so many times you can give a bottle of wine before it gets old. To avoid that, Lin Lin started The Care Box Co.

A commercial lawyer by day, Lin wanted to create a product to help gift-givers find the perfect present without the price tag. “When I was younger, I struggled to find presents that were thoughtful but still reasonably priced. That’s how The Care Box Co started,” says Lin.

TCBC does the hard work, researching and finding the products for each package, which is delivered in a white box with a gold-foiled card. The care packages come in two sizes (the “mini” and the “maxi”). Themes include beauty, health and wellbeing; travel; and boxes specifically designed to say “thank you for the little things”. “I wanted a product that didn’t currently exist,” says Lin. “When someone isn’t feeling well, you can get them flowers. But I wanted to create a package that would fit that particular purpose.”

Lin’s favourite box? “I think for me, the Just Because Box because the best gifts are the ones you’re not expecting.

“When someone gives you something for no reasons other than to let you know they love you, I think that’s so nice.”

The Care Box Co gift boxes range from $35 to $80.
