Each box comes with a card. One on side is a letter introducing the box, and on the other side..
is a list of all the items included.
They also included a few tip cards: 5 Ways to Warm Up A Frigid Day, How To Take Photos Worthy of Your Mantel, and Secrets of Stress-Free Hostess.
This cookie mix is the biggest item in the box and I think it’s a great addition.
Illume Mini Tin Candle in Noble Currant – Value $9
This is one of those scents I keep smelling to decide if I love it or hate it! I really like a lot of the Illume holiday scents I’ve tried, and this one is growing on me.
Meri Meri Little Garden Treat Kit – Value $12.95
This set goes well with the cookie mix – and at least most of the tags aren’t holiday specific! (I was worried this item would stand out as a little late if I gifted it on Christmas).
Askinosie Sipping Chocolate – Value $4
Richer Poorer Socks – Value $12
According to the full-size version of this cocoa, this packet is enough to make two servings. (It’s 38 grams). And I’m always happy to get a new pair of socks in a box!
For the life of me I can’t figure out how this kit could be worth $24. I think $10 would be a stretch since it is just twine, mini clothespin clips, card stock and a glue pen. The idea of it is cute especially to hang holiday cards, but I just don’t think anyone I gift this box to will think this item has a high value. (Which doesn’t bother me since I think the rest of the items have plenty of value).
Also – one more pet peeve: I wish they would have included the instructions in the box instead of having them online. OK – I’m done complaining!
Soak Handmaid Luxury Hand Cream in Fig – Value $10
Cowshed Lippy Natural Lip Balm – Value $4 (Travel size)
I’m impressed with the formula of the hand cream – it’s lightweight, absorbs quickly, and so far has been keeping my hands moisturized. I like the scent but I don’t love it.
This lip balm is one of my favorite discoveries in the box – it’s like a natural version of those blistex lip balms – which are so great for dry skin weather!
Verdict: I bought quite a few of these boxes for holiday gifts, and now that I have one of the boxes in my hands, I’m even more excited to gift them. Birchbox Limited Edition boxes always just feel so special. And with the exception of the Hanging Photo Clips kit, I think the value is great and I like the variety of items – it should appeal to a wide range of people.
