The gift of me-time: Why a self-care gift box is the most uplifting and thoughtful gift

Guest author - Sarah Evangeline


To receive a unique handmade item is always a delight but have you ever experienced the happiness that is a gifted self-care box? They take gift giving to another level!

Sometimes called nurture boxes or well-being boxes, these carefully curated packages of hand-picked gifts are the perfect solution for that special person in your life. 

Let’s explore what self-care boxes are all about and some of the reasons why they are truly a gift from the heart. 


Unique gifts  

When you choose to purchase a self-care box from a small business all the items inside will be carefully compiled with thoughtfulness and care in the way that only an independent seller can. Your loved one can expect to receive treasures such as hand poured candles, home blended teas and hand stitched face masks or hair ties. Who wouldn’t adore that special small business touch?

Perfect for every occasion 

Whatever the sentiment, self-care boxes capture the occasion perfectly. Whether you’re choosing for a new mum, a special teacher or that valued friend who is having a rough time, be assured that the recipient will appreciate this little box of pampering luxury.


Childhood Nostalgia 

Remember the lucky dip at the school fair or the excitement at the sight of a full Christmas stocking?  Regardless of age I defy anyone not to give a little squeal of excitement when they peer into a mystery box of surprises. We’re never too old for a little magic so why not give the give the gift of nostalgia. 


Supporting small businesses 

Supporting independent sellers just feels good, doesn’t it? Small business owners pour their heart and soul into creating an unforgettable experience and with self-care boxes you get a whole box of this magic! You can rest assured that every item has been thoughtfully included to bring maximum joy and happiness for the receiver.


New exciting products 

The joy of diving into a whole box of surprises is that it will most probably contain products that your loved one had never heard of before. The recipient may find a new candle or essential oil that they would not have found otherwise! Self-care boxes are often a collaboration of many carefully chosen businesses with an aligned message, so you know that your loved one is getting the pick of the bunch. 


It feels like luxury

Sometimes we’d like a little more than a practical gift. We might secretly prefer something frivolous and beautiful that brings a sparkle to our day! The typical items that come in a self-care box focus on well-being, relaxation and pampering…and sometimes we all need a bit of that!


Well, there you go! Just a few of the reasons why self-care boxes might be your saving grace the next time you are a little stuck for gift ideas. Sneak a peak in our sellers Emporium here on Small Business UK  to discover our exquisite range of self-care boxes that will surely not disappoint!
