The Wellbeing Store journey began when I was undergoing breast cancer treatment and received a huge amount of flowers. So many I could have set up a florist! On the opposite end, people just simply stopped calling...radio silence. I realised that people don’t know what to do or say when ‘life happens’, and no offence to flowers (as my name means flower!), yet they don’t quite cut it.
So, whilst recovering from treatment in bed, tapping into my super power for finding unique gifts to ‘take me away’ from how I was feeling during treatment. I spent countless hours sourcing beautiful wellbeing products from other amazing small businesses to create a range of beautiful wellbeing gift boxes that are purposeful, beautiful and foster wellbeing for all life moments - whether they be happy moments or tough ones.
More than that, as a Wellbeing expert, trainer and coach, I designed these wellbeing gift boxes with purpose, to help nurture, calm and support someone through their wellbeing journey and all of life moments.
I am passionate about creating a beautiful gifting experience in store and online, where every purchase is mindful, meaningful and will make a lasting impression. All of our products are hand wrapped with love in our signature eco friendly tissue paper and personal touches like hand written messages to make a lasting impact for the receiver.
Building this business fills my cup and I cannot wait to see all the magic you create with your gift-giving journey.
My Wellbeing Story
I once thought I was 'Wonder Woman'. Invincible. I could do it all. Have it all. An overachiever workaholic who thrived on stress and challenge. So much so, I worked myself sick. Real sick. Never get better kind of sick.
Over the last 10 years, I have battled to stay alive. It took me losing everything, including my health, to learn what truly matters to me. I have defied all odds surviving and keep getting up to face every day with a smile on my face embracing all that life has to offer - 'The Happy Warrior'. I have battled not one but two chronic illnesses, a rare and non-curable autoimmune disease, Sarcoidosis, and in the last two years, Breast Cancer too. I have now failed all treatment and am here for a good time, not a long time.
At the heart of The Wellbeing Store is our desire to foster mindful gifting. We encourage you to go beyond the expected. We help you to be there meaningfully for your loved ones in life moments that matter with wellbeing gifts that are mindful, purposeful and create a lasting impression.
We curate our offering from brands who adhere to one or more of the following qualities; local, ethical, made using natural ingredients, small-scale, handmade, environmentally friendly. We choose to stock these brands because their business models are sustainable and they create beautiful products that are long-lasting, and advocate wellbeing.
We commit to being real, vulnerable and open. We promise to show up honestly and share our struggles and wins as we build this business. We are a small business of caring humans who aim to do our best and create the most amazing gifting experience for you. We welcome your feedback, we crave your support to keep us going, and love nothing more than seeing the wellbeing gifts being received and loved.
In order to give generously to others, we believe you need to fill your own cup regularly. That taking time out, treating yourself, loving beautiful things, celebrating connection and the small wins along the way are fundamental to your wellbeing. Doing this without guilt, anxiety or worry takes practice and experience.
We believe life is to be lived fully - celebrating all the good things in life and creating memories with loved ones in life moments that matter.
We want to support you to show up and live your best life.
Small Details Matter
Every gift box is hand prepared and wrapped with love and care. We pick and pack your order in-store.
Our greeting cards are hand made using a letterpress too and we hand write your personal message to create that special touch.
We want to help support people on how to give and be there for loved ones when life stuff happens…how and what to do or say when you don’t know what to say or do. We do this by sharing our wellbeing stories, our life stuff, practical tips as we have navigated some of the toughest life challenges.
Utilising the lived experience and wellbeing expertise, our founder Fleur Marks, understands what it takes to truly take care of your wellbeing. We want to help you learn how to take care of yourself sustainably, practice and embody self love, and literally be a ‘well-being’.
