BuddyBox One-off


Pre-orders close in:

Each BuddyBox contains at least 5 products hand-picked to nourish, inspire and encourage self-care.

The contents of the BuddyBox vary from month to month and remain a closely guarded secret. (The surprise is very much part of the experience.) All the items included in the box are intended to make you feel good: helping you de-stress, find calm, feel pampered, relax, get creative, or simply have fun.

September’s BuddyBox Theme: Grow Your Own Way

It can be overwhelming, the ticking and tocking of our timeline clock. The pressure, the comparisons and the having-to-figure-out-what-we-want-ness. We all have milestones, targets and ideas in our head of exactly what we ‘should’ have, and when we’re ‘supposed’ to have them by. We stack our goals and aspirations up against everyone else’s, using theirs as a rule of thumb for our own timelines. And, when we don’t measure up, the inadequacy can feel crushing.

Even before we were born, we were expected to meet certain milestones. At 11 weeks, we were supposed to be the size of a lime, and at 22 weeks we were expected to be the size of a papaya. There are timelines for when we ‘should’ have been walking and talking by. As we’ve grown older, those timelines have stretched to tell us what age we should drive a car, get a job, find a partner, buy a house and have children. It’s no wonder we feel so inclined to meet these milestones. It is ‘what everyone else is doing’ after all, right?

Even though we know life can be unpredictable, messy and throw curveballs at us every which way, we still feel that pressure to compare where we’re at against a timeline. But when we do this, we’re attempting to squash and mould ourselves to fit certain things that we might not be ready for or might not even want. We wouldn’t throw out an unripe piece of fruit just because it fell a little short of when it was supposed to be ripe by. We’d give it the extra time it needs and wait until it is ready, because we know it’ll get there. We deserve to show ourselves the same understanding and patience, too.

September’s BuddyBox invites you to toss out that timeline and focus on YOU. It’ll prompt you to take pride in your daily growth – even the smallest and shakiest of steps – and encourage you to place your needs and wants above the ‘shoulds.’ The 5 products inside have been carefully handpicked to help you follow your own path, pay recognition to your progress, and remind you just how worthy you are when those slow-progress days make you feel otherwise.

Also available as a subscription!
