Tea and biscuits and some forget-me-not seeds to scatter in someone’s memory are a perfect way to let a friend, colleague or loved one know you are thinking about them at a difficult time. This is an alternative to our Sorry for your Loss box, if you don’t feel poems and candles are appropriate. Sometimes it might be nice to receive something a little further down the line, once the funeral is over and everyone is getting on with their own lives – this is when the true impact of loss sets in. How nice to receive some seeds to scatter in a corner of the garden or along a favourite walk (particularly in the case of a pet).
This would also be something thoughtful to send for an anniversary of a loss, a difficult time after a loss such as a birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day to let a friend or loved one know that you understand it is still difficult for them.
Choose from Classic or Fruit organic teas from the English Tea Shop and organic shortbread biscuits from Island Bakery or glutenfree biscuits from Rhythm 108.
Hello Jane, I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for creating friend in a box. I simply love it! Having sent a few boxes out to my friends this year I was pleasantly surprised to receive the tea and biscuits box, out of the blue from one of my closest friends. It absolutely made my day and the letter inside was so lovely I admit I shed a little tear (happy tears).
I was googling sympathy hampers for my friend who's mum died recently. Friendinabox came up. I looked through and found your tea and sympathy box. Then saw the woman power box as my other friend had just had a break up and her business was taking a dip. I just thought they were both perfect!
