Sharing is Caring Australia curates gift boxes with the love, care and personal touch you want when organising a gift for a loved one. In the world we live where even the most organised person is time poor, Sharing is Caring is here to help take one thing off your ‘to do list’, your gifting.
Our gift boxes are meant to feel like you’ve had the time to research gift options, go to multiple stores and put together something eclectic and unique, wrapped beautifully with a handwritten card. We do the work so you can share the love! Each gift box is filled with products you may know from brands we know they’ll love! These aren’t your standard gift boxes with generic ‘filler’ products - ours are gifts that will actually be used, no regifting required! A gift from Sharing is Caring is the gift you want to receive!
Sharing is Caring has the perfect gift box to celebrate any occasion. From birthdays to baby showers, anniversaries to engagements, thank yous and congratulations. Whether it’s a new job, a new house or a gift just because - we’ve got you covered!
LOTS OF LOVE

WHO ARE WE?
Lara Sands began Sharing is Caring in 2020 during Melbourne’s second covid lockdown (the long one). Moving on from one of Melbourne’s top creative agencies, she found herself being asked in a string of job interviews when she planned on having children and then consequently not getting the job. The final straw came when a recruiter told her not to wear her wedding ring to interviews as her age and marital status would lead prospective employers to consider her a ‘maternity leave risk’ and so too costly for a business to give the job to.
Feeling demoralised and disappointed at the advertising industry she’d dedicated a decade to - she decided to get out of her comfort zone and do something for herself. Using her creativity and love for gift giving and taking inspiration from her parents who she’d seen run their own successful fashion business; she put herself out there and began the journey of starting her own business.
The first gift Lara created was for her best friend who had her wedding cancelled due to covid. She put together a hamper that later became Mimosa Mornings, with the aim of lifting spirits. It did the trick and so Sharing is Caring was born!
