Frequently Asked Questions


What is The Period Pick-Me-Up?

The Period Pick-Me-Up is a subscription box company. We believe that practical luxury + problem solving = a better period, and that a better period = a better life.

What's in a box?

Box contents vary every cycle. As often as possible, the products inside will be sourced from women-owned, founded, or operated businesses and fair-trade sources.

The purpose of these boxes is to help you have a better period.  We source samples from other companies in the cycle space, who have developed products that can help balance your hormones and feel better. We pair these solution-oriented samples with high-quality self-care products, so that when you open the box, you're opening a grab-and-go period routine.

Can I swap products in my box for something else?

As a new start-up, we are working towards a future in which we will be able to offer alternative products for customers who would prefer to skip the snacks/sweets in the boxes.

Please stay tuned as we get there, and feel free to provide feedback as to the types of alternative products you would prefer!

What if I have an allergy?

At this (very) early phase of our business, we do not have the ability to safely and confidently promise that we are allergy-friendly in any way, nor can we currently customize individual boxes to accommodate specific allergy needs. Customers are always encouraged to contact us with their questions/needs.

Offering allergy-friendly solutions and product lines is a development goal for our business, and we ask for your patience as we work towards it!


Can I purchase more than one subscription?

Yes, you can purchase more than one subscription! You can purchase them in the same transaction if they will all be shipped to the same address, or purchase them in separate transactions if they will be shipped to different addresses.

How do I gift a subscription?

Add a subscription or one-time purchase to your cart, optionally add gift context on the cart page, and enter both a shipping address (for your recipient) and a billing address (for you) on the checkout page.
