My love language is gift-giving, and I’m always curating little boxes for my out-of-town girlfriends, my sisters, and other family members. I pride myself on finding just-the-right-thing to send out for birthdays, housewarmings, new babies, new jobs…

I recently discovered Spoonful of Comfort, and I’ve met my match! Their gift boxes are the cutest curations! I only wish I had discovered them sooner! We moved to Raleigh from Idaho almost three years ago, and I left behind a tightly knit group of girlfriends. Immediately, I went to Spoonful of Comfort, scheming to send them all “Galentine’s Day” boxes. I squealed when I saw the “Sweet Sips Valentine Package for Two.” It includes:

  • One Dozen Cookies (you get to pick your flavors!)
  • Hot cocoa stir stick
  • Heart marshmallow topper
  • Fair Isle mug
  • Heart confetti
  • “You Warm My Heart” greeting card
  • Bright and cheerful packaging that’s a treat in itself
  • A note card with a personal message from you

I’m sending these to all of my girlfriends, with a little note about sharing a virtual hot chocolate. And! Use code CLJGIFT for a free two-hearts necklace included in ANY Valentine box. (I’m wearing it in the photo above. It is a limited gift, while supplies last, and there are fuzzy Valentine’s Day socks if you miss out on the necklace.) These boxes would be so cute to send to your mom or your sister — or even your long-distance sweetie. (I’ve also got my eye on the Choco-Lot of Love Package).

Spoonful of Comfort is known for their soups. I ordered the “Ultimate New Parent Package” for my sister, Andi, who just had a baby. I had it shipped to myself first, so that I could see how it comes (and so I could confidently recommend it to you). I was blown away! In addition to delicious soups — dinner is a MUST for new moms — and a gorgeous ladle, there are rolls and cookies and the most darling baby gifts! The color palette ALONE! I’m taking this box over to my sister’s house today and sending another to a friend of mine who is due any day now.

I also ordered a housewarming gift for my parents, who just moved to North Carolina. Again, I had this box shipped to myself so I could see what my friends and family were getting. I ordered the “Comfort by the Slice Pie Package” because my dad loves pie. (He’s already called me for a rec on the best bakery in town.) This darling box comes with the most elegant pie server and all the fixin’s to make either an apple or a mixed berry pie. I love that this box comes with the ingredients and instructions, instead of a ready-made pie, because I know that there’s something really comforting about baking in a new house. I can hardly wait to smell the apple pie wafting through my parents’ home.

Spoonful of Comfort has gift boxes for every occasion — from college graduation to the loss of a pet. I’ve already set up calendar reminders for all of the birthdays in my calendar, and I love that there’s an option for custom boxes. (I also love that there’s a gluten-free box.) I truly feel like I’ve found a personal concierge to gift-giving. I couldn’t feel happier — or more generous :)

    I ordered a gift box for my daughter in Milwaukee. Stuck in the house with a 6 month old during the dreary wintery month of February deserves a spoonful of comfort! Thanks for the clj gift code! Always a fan following. Cat

    This is a great company and service. Have used them many times for family and friends going through cancer treatments, Covid, birthday celebrations, etc.

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
