The lovely Deb at Boxcitement has been kind enough to send me the March box of ‘Loveliness through your letterbox’. More info at the end, but in the meantime, let’s have have a look!
The box does indeed fit through the letterbox, and it’s very nicely branded. I love the sealing tape, that’s a really nice touch.
This is excellent presentation. Every box is themed, and this month’s theme is Globetrotter. There’s a full menu on the other side of the lid insert, but I’m a big fan of surprises, so I never look at the menu until the end!
There’s also a little newsletter, which is a new addition to the box.
There’s some information about the items in this month’s box, and the inspiration behind them.
So this is what’s hiding under the tissue! I love the little packages, and I can see a bright pattern peeking out too.
I love these socks! As you can see from the label, they are inspired by Las Vegas.
I’m not a gambler, but a little bit of luck is always useful!
Heading to the UK, here is a phone or sunglasses case.
My phone is massive so doesn’t quite fit in this, but it is the perfect size for my sunglasses! Even though it’s a soft case the fabric is thick and sturdy, you’d have to actually sit on it to cause any damage to what’s inside! I really like the grey colour, and the Union Jack design, together with the tiny Boxcitement logo in the middle, looks both fun and stylish.
Everyone might communicate by email nowadays, but it’s so lovely receive proper mail. Postcards are a lovely way to drop someone a quick line, and these three would be lovely to send to someone off on an adventure, whether it’s physical travel or a new adventure in their life! You could also use them for scrapbooking or journaling.
Heading to China now, here is a little glass pebble for resting your chopsticks on, plus a pair of actual chopsticks!
If, like me, you’re rubbish with real chopsticks these tweezer-type chopsticks are much easier to use. Wagamama give a small version of these to children, and on the odd occasion I’ve asked for an extra pair for me!
The little glass pebble is a lovely tactile thing. If you didn’t want to use it for chopsticks it would make a really sweet minimalist little ornament.
Here we have a little souvenir from Russia, this attractive Russian Doll keyring. These are called matryoshka dolls and the floral design is known as Khokhloma, vivid flower patterns.
These vinyl stickers are inspired by traditional Portuguese azulejos tiles. They have lovely bright colours and patterns, and if you’ve traveled anywhere in Spain or Portugal, you will have seen them everywhere!
Finally, these lovely bead and tassel earrings were sealed up in the little gold package. The design is inspired by the Orient. Tassels are a common ornament in both China and Japan, and the little jade green beads in these earrings add a little pop of colour.
It was such a lovely experience exploring all the goodies in this box. I really like the theme, and all the items fit in with it very cleverly. It must have been tremendous fun deciding what different items to choose!
There’s a great mixture of the practical and the whimsical. I particularly like the uniqueness of all the Boxcitement items.
This is essentially a box of lovely little gifts for yourself. I think even if there is an item in a box that doesn’t quite fit you, you’ll know someone who will appreciate it! I’m planning to give the earrings to a dear friend who I know will love them, because while I think they’re very pretty I actually wear the same earrings all the time. It’s pretty special to be able to treat someone else as well as yourself!
Whether for yourself or for someone else this would be a wonderful gift. For the price of a few coffees you get ‘loveliness through your letterbox’, with a wonderful selection of treats to brighten your day.
