What is a Self Care Box?
A self care box is your own special toolkit that is full of items to help you rest, relax and feel rejuvenated. You can pull out your self care box when you’re feeling stressed or need a pick-me-up. But self-care should be a regular thing, so I encourage you to use your self-care box regularly (I use mine every day.)
What to Put in a Self Care Box?
The options are endless on what you can put in your self care box and ultimately, it’s your personal choice. Think about the types of things that make you feel relaxed, happy and rested. Do you love incense, or are you more of a scented candle type of person? Customize your self care box and make it your own.
Having said that, here are some of my favorite ideas to put in your self-care box.

How to Make a Self Care Box
Here are the supplies you’ll need to make your own self care box:
- Ornaments or Embellishments for the Box
- Items to put in your self care box
- Optional – Paper Shred Filler to put in the box
Now comes the fun part – putting your self care box together. Make sure you decorate your box – don’t skip this step. Your self care box should make you happy when you look at it. This doesn’t have to be expensive – it only cost me a few dollars to decorate my box. I already had the gold letter stickers, so all I needed was some paper shred filler and some pretty stickers for the lid.
Once you’ve decorated your self care box, fill it with a selection of items that make you feel happy, relaxed and pampered.
I like to include a journal in mine so I can write down my thoughts using these self-care journal prompts. I also include mala beads, which are a helpful tool when you want to meditate but you can’t sit still.
Make the box your own, decorate it as whimsical, minimalist, feminine (or anywhere in between) as you want, and fill it with the things that make you happy.
And don’t forget the most important step – make sure you open your self-care box on a regular basis and take some time for self-care!
