Can A Self-Care Box Help You?

A self care box is essentially a concentrated space filled just with things that will help you – no matter if you need to calm down, recharge, or pick yourself back up again. The idea of this box is to provide you with everything you need to get back on track during those times when it is difficult to even comprehend self-care. Here is a little advice on how to put together your own self-care box.

What is a self-care box?

What is so great about a self-care box? A self-care box can be soothing, and make you feel safe and secure. Adding sensory items – items you can touch, smell, or listen to, can help you lay emphasis on something in the here and now – that are not the negative or intrusive thoughts you are experiencing. Focusing on the sensations can distract you, and help ground you in reality.

The holidays are officially here, and if you ask us, there is no greater gift to give than a self-care basket. While the holidays are a joyful time, they can also be stressful – so giving your loved ones the tools they need to take care of themselves in the form of a self-care basket is an excellent idea.

Not sure exactly what should go in self care packages for friends? Don’t worry – we did all the hard work for you so you don’t have to think about it. Here are a few ideas to help you get started.

  • A spa gift set

Give your loved one or yourself the gift of an at-home spa day complete with all the essentials, from everything they need for an at-home manicure or pedicure to bath salts.

  • A gift card

A gift card can be a wonderful addition to any self-care basket. No matter if it is a gift card for yoga classes, a massage, or a meal at their favorite restaurant, make sure the gift card you give has an element of self-care to it.

  • Essential oils

Essential oils can help us sleep, energize us, and promote a sense of calm. In other words, they are self-care in a tiny bottle. So, pop a few essential oils in your self-care basket, and if you would like to take things to the next level, throw in a diffuser.

  • Cozy socks

Is there anything worse than cold feet, and anything better than warm and toasty feet? By tucking a little extra cozy socks into the self-care basket of your loved one, you will make sure that their feet are nice and warm all winter long. The fuzzier the better!

  • A cozy blanket

In addition to fuzzy socks, if you have the space, add a cozy blanket. For some of us, self-care means a great Netflix binge, for others it means a day spent reading on the couch – and both activities require a soft, warm blanket.
