Michelle Mackintosh is on a mission to encourage people to reconnect with each other.

Many of us send care packages without even realising it - get-well packs, student treats, food packages to expats, clothes packages to charities, family packages to loved ones in the army - the list can be endless. Put together with Michelle's beautiful collage aesthetic, Care Packages brings back the art of crafting packages with love and care.

The book will be split into several chapters including reasons to send a care package, types of care packages, delivery, what to include in your care package and projects on how to design, craft and decorate your care package. Projects will be easy to achieve with step-by-step photography and instructions.

This book will inspire a sense of time, love and care when corresponding with a loved one.


Novel idea but unsure about practicality


Whilst I like the idea behind this book, I can't think of anyone like the author or the people in her case studies! I'm sure such thoughtful and generous people do exist (and I would gladly have them as my family and friends!) but they must be in a minority. I bought this book because I can relate to the desire to give and I have a fascination with packaging. I also have a dream to start a subscription box business so I'm interested in creative ways to wrap and send items. But I'm finding that in this tech era most are now obsessed with screen-based activities and not the thoughtful, tangible things of days gone by. Whilst the author does present some interesting ideas, I didn't find the book overly inspiring - perhaps that was just due to my personal taste in design and gifts. I would recommend the book but I think it was overpriced for what it offered.
