Spoonie Essentials Box Review – Gifts To Support The Chronically Ill On Their Good and Bad Days
Spoonie Essentials Box Review | Gifts To Support The Chronically Ill On Their Good and Bad Days – Living with a chronic illness day in and day out is exhausting both mentally and physically. One day can be harder than the next and sometimes we just need a reminder that our loved ones support us and care about us, especially on our bad days. I have reviewed subscription boxes in the past and when I was asked to review the Spoonie Essentials Box I was excited to see what this box tailored to the chronically ill offered.
“The idea behind this box came from the firsthand experience of going in-and-out of the hospital as you fight a chronic-illness that no one can see. Being in the hospital and wishing there was some sort of “Chronic Disease Survival Pack” for all the things forgotten at home, or staying at home to rest and having friends visit without knowing exactly what they could do to support during a flair; inspired this box.”
“We wanted to find a way to support other Spoonies, and to let them know they are not alone in their fights, and, better yet, we wanted to equip them with items to nourish their mind, strengthen their heart, heal their body, feed their soul, and comfort their spirit. While no amount of #SpoonieEssentials can take any Spoonie’s pain or illness away, receiving handpicked Spoonie approved monthly goodies is the next best alternative.”
“The #SpoonieEssentialsBox is ultimately inspired by the fervent desire to make invisible-illness visible. The proceeds from the #SpoonieEssentialsBox will go towards funding a future non-profit organization, #iAmVisible. If one person, just one person, better understands chronic-illness, then a family member or friend may have a better quality of life as the invisibility of chronic-illness is eradicated. One more person understanding that invisible diseases are very real and chronically-ill people are VISIBLE is one step closer to the ULTIMATE GOAL of inspiring someone to find a cure.”
I can not tell you how much I love the Spoonie Essentials Box! It has the most items out of any box I have reviewed! This subscription box is tailored to the chronically-ill and this month offered crafts, inspirational items, sweet treats, an awesome tumbler, jewelry, candles, cute socks and so much more! Every item was hand-picked with the “spoonie” in mind. I found myself going through each item and saying “Awe, this is so cute!” or “I love this!” loud enough that my teen daughter came in my office to see what I was talking about and she quickly joined in with her excitement too.
I could definitely tell whoever picked out the items for this box really had us all in mind. I really like that it includes a little bit of everything, but I love that it included things to keep us distracted too, like the warrior key chain and paint and the cute pouch that you can sew. If my loved one would have sent me this box, I probably would have started crying because it is by far one of the most thoughtful gifts, it includes things for both my good days and my bad days.
The Spoonie Essentials Box is a newer company doing some pretty amazing things, like giving back profits towards funding a future non-profit organization, called #iAmVisible which can help a ton of people!

I would recommend this box to anyone needing a pick me up, someone you want to know you’re thinking of them and want to show your support. I would even buy this box for myself because of all the great things it includes! I did notice this months box was tailored more to females so keep that in mind, but they offer monthly boxes, birthday boxes, and sell awesome individual items.
