It’s been so frosty here. I’ve been enjoying our woodburning fire, curling up inside and hibernation time. I am truly grateful for every beautiful day.
Here are some more things I’m grateful for:
Little Things I Love:

I am totally loving: sending out Healing Boxes…did you know I founded a non-profit called Healing Boxes CIC? check it out…A gift is an opportunity for joy, transformation and connection. Make it count. Click To Tweet
We create boxes full of great stuff for the people you care about. Gifts that say “I’m thinking of you”, “Hang in there”, or simply “You are loved”. For a loved one – or yourself! – Healing Boxes are the perfect pick-me-up: thoughtful, useful, easy to customise and ship.
How It Works
Browse the Healing Boxes shop and choose a box that reflects the message you want to send.We provide a variety of package options including:
• Bespoke boxes for those who’d like a little help in putting together their gift. This option pairs you with a staff member to personally assist you in your choices. (It may even get you access to specialty items not available in our regular collection!)
Charity & Donations: Where The Money Goes
A portion of every box sold goes toward:
• Covering stock costs and the upkeep of Healing Boxes.
• Expanding our reach and range of gifts
• The Healing Boxes donation fund which regularly contributes to local hospices and charities*
*The hospices and charities we support may change over time. For a list of organisations we’ve donated to, check out Who We’re Supporting, or sign up for our newsletter. Monetary or Healing Box donations can also be made directly here.
