February 2020 – Parcel Contents

Hello…it’s time for our February contents reveal, and this month the theme was “Love Yourself”.

The contents were all about the importance of putting yourself first and investing in a little self-care – you deserve some me-time!

February Contents:

The Pad Of Productivity –

Your February parcel is here! And, as this month is associated with all things “Love”, we wanted to celebrate the importance of showing yourself some love and self-care – something that is very easy to forget to do! This Productivity Pad is a great way to help unload our mind. It can be stressful thinking about all the daily tasks and chores we have ahead of us, so writing them, in a list, and the satisfaction of ticking them off, one by one, can be a great help!

“My Mindful Day” & Star Pencil –

We spotted these lovely sheets on Facebook and contacted the creator, “Tiny Acorn Mighty Oak” for a collaboration, as we thought they were a perfect fit for this month’s parcels. Mindfulness can be great for anxiety – it can sound daunting if you’re unfamiliar with it, but in short, it simply means slowing down, taking time to breathe, and allowing yourself to refocus and become grounded. This sheet is a great way to begin…we’ve even included a cute star pencil to help you get started.

Spotty Socks –

Now, when we’re thinking about self-care, we think, cosy, warm, snuggly…socks! So, these had to be included in your parcel this month, now all we need is a blanket, a hot chocolate and our favourite box set, and we’re sorted…

Home Sweet Home –

These wooden heart decorations look lovely wherever they are hung. Home Sweet Home is a safe place to lots of us, and where we can relax and take some much deserved me-time…there’s nothing wrong with investing a little time in ourselves and our own wellbeing…and taking advantage of that long overdue duvet day!

 Go At Your Own Pace –

We’ve included another inspirational postcard from “Katie Abey Design”. Remember to take a moment to breathe, to step back and to enjoy the journey – it’s Okay to go at your own pace.

Smile Cards –

As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to.

January 2020 – Parcel Contents

Hello…we’ve almost successfully made it all the way through January – lots of us don’t particularly enjoy the first month of the year – it means a return to work and reality, it’s cold, and it seems to be very very long!!

Our parcel theme this month was “New Beginning” and with the contents we hoped to make your January a little brighter, by including products all associated with kick-starting your new year with positivity and inspiration!

January Contents:

Llama Water Bottle –

For your first parcel of 2020, we wanted to focus on the theme of new beginnings and add contents associated with inspiration. Lots of us are starting the new year by trying, where we can, to reduce the general waste we create, and particularly, single use plastic, so we thought we’d start by including a reusable water bottle. We loved the cute Llama design, as well as being great for the environment. (We will be doing more ourselves, and making the switch to biodegradable packaging inside all our parcels soon!)

Be A Flamingo… –

We love this quote. It is a great reminder to embrace being you, and standing out from the crowd. Be proud of your differences and flaunt them – there’s only one you! This artwork card has been handmade by Rachel over at “Rae Creates” – you can find her other lovely designs over on her Facebook page.

Dreamcatcher –

Lots of people choose to set resolutions for themselves at the start of a new year. For some, this is great and helps them to focus on achieving their goals, but for others, it can mean too much pressure, and have the opposite effect of feeling down or deflated if those goals aren’t reached. But what we do believe, is that everyone should have dreams, whether big ones or small ones – so what could be better than a dreamcatcher, to stop them getting away!

Mindfulness Charm –

As soon as we discovered these beautiful charms, we knew they were a perfect addition for our parcels. They have been created by “Claire Craft at Little Gestures”, who also writes lovely poems to go along with her inspirational products and gifts.

Appreciated, Valued, Loved –

We’ve included another inspirational postcard from “Katie Abey Design” this month. We all go through tough times, and sometimes we all need a little reminder of just how appreciated, valued and loved we are – I hope this card reminds you of this…because it’s true.

Smile Cards –

As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to.
