Georgia Harley used to dedicate her free time to creating care packages for her friends, whether it was an overworked family member or a recent divorcé. Inspired by the reaction, Harley opted out of her day job to design packages that allow even the busiest people to send some love.

“Caring Canary packages are just what you need when flowers or chocolates aren’t appropriate,” says Harley. With a focus on local Australian businesses and artisan products, the care packages are unique in both goods and concept. Treats from Lixie Chocolaterie and Sweetness The Patisserie are combined with organic luxuries by Ecoya and Wild Healing in packages called Just Because and Ray of Sunshine. For Him is an assortment of specialty shaving cream and a Gentlemen’s Hardware shoe polish kit. Harley is helping people to show they care when they’re not sure how to express it.

Launched this week, the online store offers eight personalised care packages in a custom-designed white-gloss gift box. There is also a bespoke service tailored specifically to the form of love you need to send. Harley notes the site allows those who can’t show they care in person to do so in an easy yet personalised way.

“Caring Canary is all about putting good vibes out into the world,” she says.
