There are some lovely self-care boxes available on the internet which would lighten up anyone’s day especially now during these hard times. You could make one yourself or buy one. I have found some that start from £11. Some are subscriptions if you choose to do that, but you can also send a one-off box. You do not need to wait until Christmas to send one as it would make a lovely surprise for someone not expecting anything to drop through the letter box.
I don’t know about you but I get quite excited at the sound of something large coming through the letter box and although I have never received one of these boxes I do get my regular magazines that I have signed up to and some have some freebies in them or extra reading which makes them even heavier.
It is a fight between me and my husband as to who gets to the front door the quickest. The funny thing is that nine times out of ten the only envelopes for my husband are bills.
Here is my choice of some lovely self-care boxes.

- A Hug in a Box Self Care Ladies Package which will contain the following – This box contains a variety of products to help aid relaxation – although each box may vary, but as you can see from the picture it includes lots like tea, chocolate, candle, sweets, hand cream and Vaseline.
