Everyone loves to feel special especially when they're sick, grieving, or maybe just because.  We've found a cool new gift idea we think you're gonna love too.

I don't know about anyone else but around this time every year, I get down in the dumps.  Maybe because it's in the middle of winter and I have the blues.  I don't often share that I'm going through it but apparently, my computer knew and sent me this sweet little website meant to boost someone's mood when they're down by sending them a cute gift box that is tailored to whatever they're facing.  I LOVE IT!


Spoonful of Comfort started from tragedy and has turned into triumph.  Marti Wymer is the founder and CEO of the company.  We found her story on the Spoonful of Comfort Website and had to share it;

In October 2007, I received the phone call from my mother that she had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer.

I was shocked, scared and panicked. The hardest part about hearing the news was that she lived in New Brunswick Canada and I lived in Florida. More difficult still, I had just returned the day before from a trip visiting her. With two young children in school, I couldn’t just turn around and go back.

I was so upset and felt helpless being so far away. I needed to “do something.” I looked into sending flowers or fruit, but nothing seemed appropriate. I wanted to show her how much I cared, and in some way comfort her.

I immediately thought of chicken soup – it’s what she (like many mothers) used to make to comfort me. And the idea for Spoonful of Comfort was born.

Sadly, Marti's mother passed away not long after.  She is now honoring her mother by making beautiful boxes of comfort for everyone's family and friends who are in need of it.


You don't have to send a box because someone is sick Marti has designed boxes for all occasions and they are amazing.  I think the one I love most is the Just Because box.

Here's a sample of what comes in the box;

  • 64 ounces of soup or mac n' cheese (4-6 generous servings)

  • Half dozen bacci rolls , or four bread bowls! (with Broccoli Cheddar and Creamy Corn Chowder soup only)

  • Half dozen delectable cookies

  • A shiny ladle to serve up the smiles

  • Bright and cheerful packaging that's a treat in itself

  • A note card with a personal message from you

I want a Just Because box because it looks and sounds delish.  I always tell my husband I love the Just Because surprises more than anything else because they aren't given because you feel like it's required.

How about a birthday box of cookies?  That's a sweet surprise.  You can even pick the kind of cookies you want them to send.

Ok, so the Cookies and Cuddles Care Packages may be the very best one.

Cookies and Cuddles Care Package includes:


  • Half dozen delicious cookies

  • Cuddle-worthy blanket

  • Warmable stuffed monkey (lavender filled)

  • Cuddle Monkey book

  • A note card with a personal message from you

    These are just a few of the options of the many they have.  My kids absolutely love their warmable stuffed animals even my teenager!  It is something they request when they are tired or not feeling 100%.

If you are a busy person who doesn't often have time to shop for gifts but always like to make your friends and family feel special this is perfect.
