Stories are important. And so is good tea.

Hello!

I’m Amy and I created The Storybook Cafe to provide a way for people to send bookish self care packages to themselves or loved ones when they needed a little boost. This can be for anyone who is having a rough time or who needs pampering; I’ve created gifts for everything from birthdays to exam stress to going through chemotherapy to grief to mild or severe mental health issues.

The idea originated from a therapeutic activity I was recommended for myself; creating a Bad Day Plan. This is a list of things that are realistically achievable for you to do to look after yourself on a Bad Day. Self care is a term that most of us are familiar with, but I wanted to take it back to its roots. What are the things we all must do every day to care for ourselves?

I came up with eat, drink, wash, sleep and love. This is the basis of the gifts, with most including a drink, snack, soap, book and postcard. Books are my own way of self-soothing, which help me fall asleep, escape, dream, think and connect and I felt confident I had read enough to choose something interesting from each genre for different people’s needs. Love comes from receiving a gift that is created specifically for you to look after yourself, from someone who has been through Bad Days and firmly believes that being kind to yourself and others is the only way forward. You can find more on the blog I sporadically update here;

I hope that if you buy a gift, you feel like someone else cares so you deserve to care for yourself! Everything is all packed and secured by me (with some help from my beautiful cat) in recycled tissue paper within a postal box, and sealed with washi tape and a sticker, with love.

Kindness always,
Amy (and Pusscat)
