Depression - the monster on your back · Happy Times

Buddy Box :)

There is a great website  www.blurtitout.org which has loads of resources and helpful information for people living with depression and their families & friends. They send out encouraging emails and advice and have a blog with really interesting articles.

On the site you can order a ‘Buddy Box’ which is a box of comforting treats that will be sent in the first week of the month (so if you order the box in December, it will arrive in beginning-mid January, order in January it will arrive in February etc.)

You can order a one-off box (which is what I did as I’d never bought one before) or you can purchase a subscription where you receive a box either monthly, quarterley, bi-annually or annually.

Well my Buddy Box arrived this morning and I have to say I absolutely LOVE it! It’s like a hug in a box!

The products in the box are always kept secret until the box is sent out so if you’re careful not to find anything online then it’s a lovely surprise!

The stuff I got was:-

  • a postcard
  • a ‘Do Not Disturb’ door hanger
  • a packet of Yuyo Rooibos Restore tea-bags (with hints of chocolate and cherry-tart hibiscus…mmm)
  • a tube of Human+Kind hand, elbow and foot cream
  • self-care bullet journal post-it notes
  • a copy of The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking
  • a copy of the ‘Blurt-zine’ magazine

Even the paper it was wrapped in was cute!

The great thing is you can order this for a friend who you know could do with a lovely surprise hug to uplift their mood.

Will definitely be ordering one again – might even subscribe – to have this arrive is a bit of encouragement to get through each day. This has really brightened my day! 🙂
