Timree Holiday Cards – 6 pack, value: $9(USD)

These cards were actually included as a free gift! I think they’re really cute and festive.

Sephora Collection Tinted Kiss Me Balm, Candy Apple – value: $8(USD)

This is a great lip balm for when you want moisture and sheer color. I’m also happy to see the Sephora brand in this box! Subscribers received 1 of 5 colors.

Here’s a swatch of the balm. You can see the color is sheer but still pigmented.

Crabtree & Evelyn London White Chocolate Raspberry Biscuits – 3.5 oz, value: $5.75 (USD)

What pretty packaging! It’s perfect for gifting, but I couldn’t resist them. They’re delicious!

I also love how pretty this tin is.

Subscribers received 1 of 6 flavors. I got white chocolate raspberry, but you could also get triple chocolate chunk, strawberries & clotted cream, honey & oat, lemon & white chocolate, and traditional shortbread. I want to try them all! (And FYI – you can try them all! Here’s a whole set with all these flavors in it.)

Bath & Body Works White Barn Mini Lavender Vanilla Candle – value: ~$3.50 (USD) value

I couldn’t find this fragrance at Bath & Body Works as part of the White Barn collection, only in their aromatherapy collection, so they may not still sell these. I don’t mind if that is the case, though, especially because it’s a candle – and it smells great. Approximate burn time is 10 hours, and subscribers received either this scent or Japanese Cherry Blossom.

Calvin Klein 3-Piece Set (hat, scarf, and tech glove) – value: ~$70 (USD

Again, I can’t find this set currently sold online, but I’m definitely not complaining. These are really nice, classic items that I’m really impressed to see in a subscription box! Subscribers got either cream or beige. I’d prefer the beige but white is great, too. They’re 100% acrylic and really soft.

Verdict: I’m really impressed with White Willow’s first box! I’m really excited to see brands like Sephora and Calvin Klein (and even Bath and Body Works) in it! The value adds up to approximately $96.25 USD – I’m really happy with that value! I think White Willow released a great first box and I’m looking forward to seeing what they send in future boxes!

  1. I really wanted to order this. Unfortunately, shipping is almost 20 bucks to the US. No can do.

    • I agree. It seems like a great box, but the shipping is too much for me.

  2. The scarf set is an overstock item. Found at Marshall’s and TJ Maxx for $24.99. They have 4 different colors.

    • Yes, sorry but most of the items are overstocks. The funny thing is I got the scarf set this past summer from Burlington coat factory for $19.99. The items are nice but I’d like to see how they compare after a few months.

  3. A great looking box. Hmm might have to consider this for a future box.

  4. LOVEEEEE the calvin Klein set!! I have a similar white and gold one that is my go-to! I would kill for the color in the insert!

  5. I always cringe whenever I see Crabtree & Evelyn in boxes simply because my local Marshalls and TJ Maxx always has well over 100 of their products at any given time!

  6. This box looks awesome! I would want the Japanese Cherry Blossom candle and the triple chocolate chunk biscuits!

    I went to the website to see if this December box was still available and it turns out the deadline just passed for the January box – so if you order now (in the next 29 days), you’ll get the February box. 🙁

    The website also currently has a $5 off code.

  7. After another review or two, I might consider this!

  8. Im really liking this months box! I would have used all of the products. Hope they continue to do well. Now to look at their site and make some decisions. 🙂

  9. Wow. This is a GREAT Box!!!
