Fidget Box for Worriers, Anxiety Aid, Meditations for Worriers, Worry Quotes and Meditations, Fidget Toys, Calming Kit, Care Package
This kit, containing 25 interactive items and 20 soothing and reflective quotes on a small card that fits neatly inside the box, is a perfect gift for yourself, a friend, colleague, boss, or even a young person--although be aware that many items are quite small or have very small parts. This is perfect for anyone going through a difficult time, someone who is dealing with stress or anxiety, or someone who simply needs and loves to fidget.
The items contained in this kit can serve many functions; most are very tactile or functional in some way, such as moving parts, opening/closing, spinning, turning, dangling, etc. According to scientists quoted in Psychology Today, the Atlantic, and elsewhere, research has shown that small, tactile objects are great for reducing stress and helping people focus. Fidget items serve as “playful, secondary interactions able to engage the interrelation of bodily movement, affective (emotional) state, and cognition to support primary serious tasks.”
The following items are contained in the kit (in addition to quote card):
* Poetry magnets; each kit will have a variety of different words that can be rearranged in countless ways * Miniature working heart padlock with keys * Working miniature hourglass * Working compass * Peaceful panda decoration (blown glass) * Miniature clothes pin (happy to include more than one) * Working magical door locket * Working survival whistle * Worry stone (polished stone, excellent quality) * Dice set * Miniature tools (decorative, fun) * Turtle or frog figurine (please communicate your preference) * Mini book, blank with real pages * Gnome figurine (decorative) * Mini glass vial with cork lid * Colorful hot air balloon with dangle * Antique gold detailed magic wand charm * Mini realistic donut (decorative) * "Let it Snow" charm with dangle * Globe (it spins on its axis!) * Treasure chest (opens and closes with magnet clasp to reveal colorful glass jewels) * Seashell * Work boot (working fabric shoelaces) * Crystal ball (decorative, but the glass can be turned) * Buddha figurine (decorative)

This shop is incredible! Stephanie goes above and beyond to make sure her customers get exactly what they want. She put a lot of thought into it and my anxiety box came out looking beautiful. I highly recommend this shop!
For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.
I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.
Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!
By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.
I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
