This new online store ups the gifting game with fresh bakes, craft cocktails and more

Care packages are now a thing. Since the pandemic hit forcing everyone to hunker down at home, sending our friends and family items like food and drinks coupled with a heartfelt, personalised note has become the best way to show our love and appreciation. It is perhaps one of the best ways to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions too.

And turning the care package into a dedicated business is new online store Knots & Gifts. Unlike most gifting platforms, items in their packages are not only ready-made, but filled with fresh pastries, flowers and other perishables as well.

You’ll find a good selection of brands working with Knots & Gifts. In their Tea Party Bundle ($188) for instance, find slices of Basque burnt cheesecake by Aitor, scones by Patisserie G, tea bags by Gryphon Tea, an arranged pastel floral bouquet, and lots more, all beautifully packed in a wicker basket for delivery.

For something boozy, try the G&T Bundle ($158), that comes inclusive of a bottle of gin (Botanist, Sipsmith Sloe, Monkey 47, Caorunn, Roku or Botega Bacur Dry), tonic water (Fever Tree or East Imperial), garnishes, a full cheese platter and a floral bouquet. Perfect for a stay-home anniversary celebration, we say.

Or get something more manageable as a treat for yourself with packages like their Banana Bread Bundle ($58) and the Bagel & Tea Set ($68), or just mix & match by ordering items individually via their Marketplace. They even offer a Balloon Bundle ($15 for six helium balloons), just in case you really want to surprise a special somebody.

So if you’re hoping to brighten someone’s day with a package full of goodies, look no further.
