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.
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.
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.
