Boxcitement Subscription Box Review and Giveaway

I was recently sent the January 2017 Boxcitement subscription box for review. Here’s what I thought of the box which had a ‘newbie’ you theme to it. There’s also the chance to win your own January box as well.

 

The boxes have a different theme each month and with it being January, which can be a bit of a subdued month for a lot of people due to the anti-climax after Christmas, the January box is a little box of positivity. There was a Newbie You notebook included in the parcel, very fitting with the theme.

The booklet has room for all sorts of life, work and health goals within it and picture pages for colouring. There was also a card with envelope, a handcrafted beaded bracelet, a mini bath bomb and before/after mini cardboard photo frames along with other bits. Of these my favourite was the bracelet. I often wear beaded bracelets as I find weirdly that playing with the beads help me to think.

 

Boxcitement review

 

The before and after photo frames don’t have to be about weight loss. You could even choose a photograph from when you were less happy than you are now and a recent one to show how far you’ve come in any sort of life journey. In truth I won’t be using the photo frames as they aren’t really my sort of thing, as a stationery fan though, those mini pegs will most definitely be getting used.

 

The Boxcitement box also had a quote image inside, which if I had an office would be getting framed and going on the wall. The colours are beautiful and I quite like a positive quote.

There was also an ‘ohm-ni tie’ which is really cute and handy all at the same time. It’s elasticated and you can use it for all sorts of things from tying your hair back to tidying a phone charger cable and more. I love this sort of quirky thing.

The last bits that I haven’t mentioned were a positivity pebble with a pen to decorate it and four motivation cards. I haven’t decorated my pebble, as my drawing is horrendous, but it does work well as a paperweight as well.

 

The four motivation cards are cute and set you mini goals or give you ways to relax on them.

 

Boxcitement review

 

All of the items are small in size for a good reason. The Boxcitement box fit through the letterbox, which I think is brilliant as I hate waiting in for parcels. It is also a bonus if you’re sending it as a gift, as you won’t need to worry about them missing their delivery.

 

The boxes cost £20 for a one box, with discounts for ordering longer subscriptions, which is actually quite cheap for a subscription box service in my experience.

 

I actually really like my box, there are some bits that in truth I would never choose to buy. However, this is the beauty of subscription boxes like this, as you get to try new things. I love that this box has beautiful touches of quirky inside it and I would be very happy if someone bought me one as a gift personally.

 

It’s the perfect ‘cheer up’ or ‘I’m thinking of you’ gift for a friend in my opinion. If you would like to win your own unopened version of this Boxcitement box, then please do enter via the rafflecopter widget below. UK only and my usual competition terms and conditions can be found here … A Cornish Mum’s Competition Terms and Conditions.

 

Good luck!

    I actually love the beaded bracelet .. it looks like its jade and if it is … it has many healing properties

  7. 31 January 2017 / 7:09 pm

    I like the idea of subscription boxes as you never know what you are going to get. You end up with things you live that you would never brought and there are always going to be things not to your taste X

      It’s like the adult version of a lucky dip isn’t it?! There are so many less surprises as you get older, that I have a bit of a thing for surprise boxes like this :)

    My favourite is the quote image. I don’t usually like that kind of thing, but I feel that quote resonates for me; it’s an idea I often remind myself of as I find it does help, so having a reminder on the wall could be a really positive thing.

    Hadn’t heard of Boxcitement until now – love the element of surprise with each monthly box. Great for teenagers and adults alike. I particularly like the heart card as it can be used for practically any occasion – it could even be framed and put on a bookshelf. x

  87. 25 February 2017 / 9:18 am

    Absolutely love the idea of the positivity pebble… When you’re trying to clear your head having something to focus on helps, so by focusing initially on the decorating and then later on the memories of decorating the pebble I can imagine it would become something invaluable very quickly…
