I do not get many subscription boxes anymore. Occasionally I buy an Ecocentric Mom, Eco-Emi or Yuzen box. For a while I was addicted, but really there are only so many sample products you can receive without getting overwhelmed. I still have a rather large back log of products to evaluate. What I love most about my select subscription boxes is the way they are carefully packed. I just feel so special opening each and finding so many surprises I almost always adore.
So for the last couple of months I have been picking up odds and ends for my Mom. I have been planning on sending her my own "subscription style" Mother's Day Box. I am super happy how it turned out and I wanted to share the packaging and content with you.
|I chose teal, purple and read jewel tones for the packaging.|
- Spring Cleaning: contained a cutie tootie dish brush, bar of homemade lye soap, and several large sized eco-friendly detergent SportSuds samples. I haven't tried out my samples of SportsSuds yet. I received them and the lye soap from EcocentricMom.
- Treat Bag: Honibe Honey Lozenges and Honey Delights, Numi tea, Fair Trade Chocolate and a Luna bar. I enclosed all of the snacks in a little read fabric bag.
- The last little white bag contained a Marienatie Lip Gloss and a Bach Flower Essence Remedy. Oh My, Marienatie lip gloss is Fabulous!!! It is all natural and smells of vanilla. I almost wrote "smells like vanilla". This is made with the real stuff! No fake lab made chemicals here!
So for the rest of the box I tucked in several other items: A long handled shower brush/loafah, Ecotools shower scrubber, and EOS organic lip balm*, CocoaVia sample (chocolate heart health supplement), and Celestial seasoning black tea pods. The box actually contained about 20 of these pods. I used them as filler. The two little wrapped boxes contained a heart necklace and a bead for my Mom's Pandora bracelet.
I created a box for my sister and niece a couple of months ago, but did not document it. It was super cute. I really enjoyed putting together this box and I really hope my Mom enjoys opening it.
Have you had any inspired gift giving lately?
Blessings and Love,
* Be careful buying EOS products. I thought most of their products were natural and/or organic, but recently I read their lotion ingredients. They did not strike me as natural, but I need to research it further.
