Ships to: US for sure, and shipping appears to be free. All other countries are listed, but it is not possible to tell from their website what shipping charges might be.
This is the info note that was included with the package, detailing all the items within. It was rolled up and tied with string – very cute! They do a great job describing the items and why they were chosen for this package.
Mini Paint Can Puzzle – Value $1
This is absolutely brilliant! It’s a jigsaw puzzle of a solid color! Although I think yellow is the color of madness – I would prefer a more tranquil color like blue or purple. In any case, I think the act of sitting down and putting together a puzzle would definitely help calm a person down, especially a puzzle as zen as this one.
Worry Doll – Value $1
Lavender Soy Tealight Candle – Value $1
These little worry dolls are so cute! I had some tiny ones before – I think they are from Guatemala. Unfortunately, they have never been able to erase my worries!
The candle smells great, like real lavender, and lavender is such a calming fragrance.
Motivational Stones – Value $1 each
Raw Blue Apatite Crystal – Value $1
I don’t have blue apatite among my collection of crystals yet, so I’m glad to have this one! Blue apatite is supposed to be helpful in clarity of thought. Here’s hoping! The motivational stones are a nice inclusion, but they are not really to my personal taste, so these will be passed along.
Yogi Honey Lavender Stress Relief Tea – Value $0.25 each
Tazo Calm Chamomile Tea – Value $0.25 each
I haven’t tried this particular Yogi tea before, but I have found that generally Yogi teas work as they are intended. Honey and Lavender together sounds awesome! I haven’t had any Tazo teas in a long time, but I remember them being really tasty. Chamomile is soothing and so good for digestion.
Verdict: This is a lovely collection of items that I do believe are calm-inducing. I think the curation was thoughtful and spot-on. That being said, I have to note that the retail value of all items combined comes to only about $7. I would expect a box like this to have a value at least roughly equal to the cost of the box. I also was a little disheartened to find that three of the items appear to have come from Oriental Trading, bought in lots and split up. That really takes away from the specialness of the package for me. I like the idea behind the Little Box of Calm, but I would love to see them deliver items that are more unique and of a higher value.
