Caregiving can be a tough job. At times it may be joyful and wonderful and at other times exhausting and difficult. Many caregivers experience what is known as caregiver stress. “As a caregiver, you may be so focused on your loved one that you don’t realize that your own health and well-being are [hurting],” an article on the Mayo Clinic explained. And too much stress can harm your health.

The Mighty’s Caregiving Toolkit

“As a caregiver, you’re more likely to experience symptoms of depression or anxiety. In addition, you may not get enough sleep or physical activity, or eat a balanced diet — which increases your risk of medical problems, such as heart disease and diabetes.”

If you love someone who is a caregiver, it’s nice to be able to give back to them sometimes too, to help them fill their cup and make sure they’re taking time for their own needs. That’s why this roundup of care boxes made with caregivers in mind might be a great gift to send those in your life who take care of others.

To remind a caregiver they are appreciated, loved and not alone, here are 12 care boxes they may love.
