Love, Emma - Care packages for life's hardest moments
When Emma entered hospital for the last time, she had been busy working on a new care package. Her working title for the care package was ‘a little bit of bling and a little bit of fun’…oh so Emma! This care package is very special to me. Not only is it the last care package designed by Emma, the cheeky nature of the contents says a lot about her approach to life…and death.
The first item Emma selected for inclusion in the Simply Emma care package was her signature sequined slippers by Slumbies. Slip them on at home and they will no doubt brighten up your day. Wear them in hospital and you’ll be the envy of every patient, nurse and doctor.
The slippers come in a variety of colours and available in three sizes - small (5-6), medium (7-8) and large (9-10). Please note that not all colours are available in all sizes.

Book (Wine!) Tote Bag
Emily McDowell’s philosophy that funny and pretty don't have to be mutually exclusive hit a chord with Emma. And being disposed to the odd tipple, the subtle reference to the dual purpose of this Emily McDowell tote bag appealed to her sense of humour.
The screen-printed tote bag is made from a high-quality, heavyweight canvas with a gusseted bottom. Sturdy enough to carry all your books (okay, wine!). The bag measures 40cm wide, 38cm high and 15cm deep with a 33cm shoulder strap drop.
The hand-painted stemless wine glass is the creation of local artist, Kez and a Paintbrush. The self-explanatory design took Emma’s fancy the first time she saw it! Although the hand-painted wine glass is oven cured, hand washing is recommended.
Pavlova Microfibre Tea Towel
Given Emma's love of pavlova, this pavlova adorned tea towel from KE Design was 'a given' when selecting items for the Simply Emma care package. Pavlova addiction aside, this item would also have appealed to Emma's social conscious, as each tea towel is proudly cut, dyed, printed and overlocked by a combination of skilled regular and special needs workers working side by side at KE Designs production facility.
Able to absorb seven times their weight in water, these luxury, microfibre tea towels are perfect for the kitchen. Effortlessly removes smears, watermarks, and fingerprints and as an added bonus, microfibre reduces bacteria on surfaces by up to 92%. The tea towels measure 75cm x 50cm and are presented in a beautiful matching box.
Love, Emma Candle
This candle is an item we have added since Emma passed. Sydney-based designer, Made by Jes, created this candle in Emma’s honour. The candle is beautifully presented in a tin complete with the Love, Emma logo on the lid. The Boho Dreams scent is inspired by Nag Champa incense. Described by Jes as a full-bodied scent with enticing earthy notes, its sweet warmth is renowned, a fragrance unmistakable and ever so popular.
Love, Emma Card
The care package includes a complimentary postcard size Love, Emma card. We will include a hand-written message of your choosing. Alternatively, your message can be included in one of our wonderful Emily McDowell cards (sold separately).
