Let’s face it, there is no shortage of bad days in this life. Sometimes we can’t find the words to say when the people we care about most are hurting. Often we wish we could do something to ease their pain, but traditional gifts like flowers or a generic gift basket can be fleeting.

Bad Day Box is designed to send self-care to your friend’s doorstep and bring them some sunshine on a dark day. Whether they’re angry, devastated, disappointed or sad, they’ll know that they are not alone.

Personally curated for everyone and every occasion. The items in each themed box are hand picked to inspire creativity, adventure and healing. Featuring woman-owned, LGBTQ-owned, BIPOC-owned, sustainable, handmade, charitable small businesses.

A message from Founder, Leeanne

The road that led me to starting Bad Day Box stemmed from heartbreak. I had a couple challenging years in my personal and professional life – the fallout of what I thought was a very long term and committed relationship and the loss of a job which I thought was my dream job. It was a dark time, but I was fortunate enough to have so many people show up for me. At a time when there was definitely “no card for this,” they found ways to express love and remind me to eat, sleep and be kind to myself. 

Gratitude is such a fundamental part of being human and I think when you can recognize it, acknowledge it and pay it forward, the world is truly a better place because of it. I will forever be grateful for the ways my friends showed up for me. All of this would later lead to my inspiration for Bad Day Box.

With 15+ years in marketing and advertising other brands and businesses, the road to Bad Day Box has been the most rewarding work. It has become an outlet for creativity and the best coping mechanism for healing. I’m so excited to share this journey with all of you! Read Forbes feature or watch CNN feature here.
