This Me-Time Box is the perfect DIY Gift to put together for a special person who needs or deserves some me-time. Filled with items that encourage you to slow down and take a moment for yourself, it’s the perfect gift to give someone an the box allows you to gift it near or far.
We all deserve to take some time to ourselves, probably more often then we are likely to do. When I was in college, my mom would send me care packages – cookies or some things from home that I might not pick up for myself while away at school. It is those little things or gestures that we often remember most. One item that I can remember from those care packages was tea – usually Celestial Seasonings®. I can remember receiving the different herbal varieties and Sleepytime, which was so comforting, as tea can be!
Start with a pretty box that can be repurposed – everyone loves a good storage box and it can be used for anything.
Add in things to your box that encourage someone to carve out time for themselves. Here are some ideas:
- Celestial Seasonings® tea. (I chose Sleepytime, Morning Thunder and Tension Tamer).
- New tea-cup
- Journal – “Goals”
- A throw blanket
- Sheet Face Mask – no mess, no fuss
- Room or Linen Spray – spray the throw for a truly relaxing feeling
You can find a selection of Celestial Seasonings® at Walmart – where we stocked up on a variety of tea for this gift and for the Fall/Winter season!
Line the box with tissue paper and fill it. A box with a lid makes a great gift and when you’re mailing it, it can be a super fun surprise. I also include a card with the following quote: Break from the grind, clear your mind & have some ME time.
So, when thinking of what to include in this Me-Time in a Box for a friend, I knew that Celestial Seasonings® would be #1 on my list – the perfect way to carve out a little moment for yourself, any time of day. I was able to pick up three of my favorite Celestial Seasonings® – a NEW black tea, Morning Thunder, great for energy in the morning, Sleepytime and Tension Tamer, no explanation necessary.
Did you know that Celestial Seasonings® was founded 50 years ago? They had one goal, then and now, to provide delicious, high-quality teas that are good for customers and good for the world. As the original herbal tea company, they started a new way of looking at tea — a shift towards healthier, happier little moments carved into busy days. And that is what I hope my Me-Time Box accomplishes for anyone who receives it.
I tried to include something for every part of the day – something for when you’re feeling tired in the AM, something for when you’re under the weather and something for when you’re tired. Tea throughout the day. What I love is that you can find a tea for everyone in the Celestial Seasonings® varieties.
