This is the perfect service to help YOU help a friend! I wasn't sure what to do or where to start and the ideas and packages were perfection! Thank you for having something that we could customize so easily.
Here For You is one of the most intentional and thoughtful ideas. Every step of the experience was simple and I felt guided the whole time. Communication was super fast and my order went out the very next morning. Such a thoughtful gift and the recipient thought so too. Thank you Here For You!
I am truly grateful to Here For You for this invaluable work that you do. When loved ones are going through such a difficult time of loss, it is wonderful to know that a company will take the time to provide quality, customizable products, follow up letters and care and attention. My friend was truly moved. Thank you!
Here For You has a great selection of items to create a customized care package. This was exactly what I was looking for and the personal touch from the owners is an added bonus. The recipient loved every item in the care package.
The recipients of my gift said it was one of the nicest, most thoughtful gifts they have ever received.
I am so impressed with Here for You. The items available for the care packages are thoughtful. The staff is responsive and genuine. And, the follow-up card is meaningful. I imagine it's challenging to write personal cards to strangers, but I think the follow-up card is this service's greatest strength. Thank you for helping me provide comfort to my loved ones.
Keep doing what you do - its a great concept/company/service!
I’ve never seen anything like this. Personal, unique, meaningful, and such service! I was at a loss on what to do for a friend and this was such a beautiful gift and experience.
All the other generic sites basically only offered packages with mugs and blankets—and very little room to write a message. Your offerings were much more aligned to what I was looking for. Plus I prefer supporting small businesses over the generic big box sites AND the handwritten note was such a beautiful touch. I don’t know you guys, but I love you all.
I have been the recipient and sender of multiple "Here for You" packages over the years, and the package contents (ranging from useful to delicious to rejuvenating to fun) have provided sparks of joy in otherwise very dark times. I could not recommend this small, female-led, eco-conscious company more highly to help friends and family who are suffering.
Here for You" is a wonderful service addressing such a specific and complicated need. The customer service team was responsive, attentive and deeply empathetic. I felt lucky to have found this option to show support for my dear friend as her mother transitioned. Grief is so impossibly complex and I am profoundly appreciative to have this resource for myself and my chosen family.
As someone who lost a parent at 19 and had many awkward "let me know how I can help!" conversations in the immediate aftermath, I really appreciate how easy Here For You makes it to support a grieving loved one in a tangible way. The selection of care package items includes unglamorous, functional things like paper plates, which is so unexpectedly thoughtful. I especially loved the inclusion of a follow-up card in the care package purchase!
My gift was much appreciated, and I loved how easy it was to customize a package. I will definitely use this service again
The fact that I could curate the box and the hand-written note all seemed more personal than other options I saw. I also like supporting small businesses. The personal emails and follow up notes were unexpected and elevated your service. Your service fits a nice market beautifully and the gift was very well received.
I work in human resources, and was looking for an alternative to sending flowers for illness or bereavement. When you experience a loss, everyone sends flowers. Here For You is a great alternative to support folks with self care in a time of need. We've had incredible feedback from employees on the care and support they felt from receiving this thoughtful gift.
