Our special, limited edition holiday treat: perfect to gift to a loved one with health struggles, or to help you yourself enjoy the holiday season à la spoonie!
There’s lots of Christmas traditions that are difficult to partake in as a person with a chronic illness and/or disability, so we created this box to help you feel included. You can still eat the yummy goodies, and have an advent calendar, be toasty and warm – and celebrate at a different pace, knowing that you are seen and supported by your community.
A Spoonie Christmas is a combination of seasonal staples - with a spoonie twist!
Our stock is limited, so don’t wait to order yours.
🎄 An advent calendar in book form by spoonie writer Lene Andersen: Chronic Christmas, which has compassionate words of advice on how to get through this beautiful but also difficult season, as well as tips for loved ones, one for every day in the run-up to Christmas!

All of these goodies will come in a seasonal, special edition recycled cardboard Spoonie Box, wrapped in a recycled grey mailer bag to protect it during its transit. We recommend removing the mailer bag and leaving as is or adding a ribbon or some wrapping paper for an extra festive touch!
Happy Holidays from Spoonie Box! 🎄🎁
Once again Spoonie Box have left me feeling utterly spoilt by the contents of the box I bought! I absolutely love the contents of the Christmas box. And I'm looking forward to curling up with a mug of the Spiced Cacao and a mince pie, while my feet are tucked up in my fluffy reindeer socks!
I’ve followed Kristina and her business on social media now for ages but this is my first time actually buying the product. I think it’s such a beautiful idea- carefully curating gift boxes for chronically ill people- and I really like how much thought goes into each boxes, with each product chosen from another small business and designed to bring joy to ill people. The Christmas box is so luxurious, it’s perfect as a gift or a little pick me up (mine was a gift for myself!). The hot chocolate is divine and I’m excited to break into the mince pies, while the other products bring comfort and a smile. I’ll definitely be returning for more spoonie boxes- they are the perfect treats and I’m happy to support Kristina, who works so hard for our community online and just seems genuinely lovely. 10/10 recommend.
I bought this as an early Christmas present for an Aunty, whom we have not been able to visit since last year due to health and then Covid lockdowns. Aunty was really surprised and so happy to open the package and see all the contents, especially the yummy gluten free mince pies and diary free cocoa powder, so she doesn’t have to wonder the shops to find some herself. Thank you to Kristina at Spoonie Box for helping us to feel special each month and spreading the love. Even a simple box of mince pies can bring tears of joy and happiness! Highly recommend. Xx
