Box of goodies to tide residents and businesses over during self-isolation

Valley Strong Box lets residents support local businesses and get the products they love.

What do you do when you want to support local businesses during the pandemic but you’re afraid to leave your home in case you spread or collect any germs? What if you want some treats from all your favourite shops but their doors are closed or you’re in self-isolation?

Theresa Wood has all the answers. The wish manifester is making the best of the pandemic here at home by bringing together products from local businesses and combining them in the Valley Strong Box.

For $99 (taxes included), you get everything you need to turn your quarantine or physical-distancing time into a solo retreat or tiny party for yourself and those who share your home.

Best of all, you’re supporting valley businesses that still want to get their products into your freshly-sanitized hands.

Each box includes an assortment of amazing local products and will be delivered free of charge anywhere in the valley. You’ll get:

  • a roll on Immune Boost from OM Organics.

  • a puzzle from Main Street Fun and Games.

  • a bath bomb from Anchor Organics.

  • a craft kit from Black Star Studios.

  • chocolates from Gimme Some Sugar Candy Co.

  • ginger matcha spirits from Taynton Bay Spirits.

  • chocolate from Wild Mountain Chocolate.

Each box also comes with one hefty helping of feeling good about supporting local businesses.

Orders must be received by April 3. All boxes will be delivered locally on April 10, just in time for Easter. Shoppers must be 19+.

To place your order, visit (Make sure to select the ‘pick up’ shipping option to avoid shipping charges.)

Cheers to your time at home!
