The Firework Box Subscription Box Review – January 2016
The Firework Box is a brand new subscription box from Fire & Wind Co.! It is targeted for female entrepreneurs (though it can be for any woman), encouraging them to “build a business and lifestyle full of soul and success.” Examples of possible featured items include prints, a journal, candles or strategic resources. The founder, Ashley, calls this her “big high five” to you.
(I think the actual box looks awesome, and I love that it’s covered in affirmations!)
In addition, every month you order the Firework box (for you or a friend), you get access to an exclusive digital bundle made of things like backgrounds for your electronics, resources, downloadables, prints, and always a video from the company’s founder, Ashley. (You receive the code to access the digital bundle via email.)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with an info card listing the items featured that month, as well as discussing the monthly theme. This month is titled “You Deserve It” and is really just an introduction. Next month’s theme is “self care.”
Pocket Mirror – value: $5
This mirror is a disc with a saying/design on one side and a mirror on the other. I dig the message! The other designs in their Etsy shop are really cute, too.
Yay! Card + Envelope – value: $4
I like this card. It’s simple but can be used for so many occasions, or just because!
Birthday Cake Lollipop – value: $1.25
This is my kind of grown-up lollipop! They’d make awesome party favors, too. Here’s how they describe their Birthday Cake flavor:
“Our birthday cake is our wonderful lemon cream combined with a pinch of fresh ground cinnamon. It taste just like white birthday cake and frosting!”
I am sucking on this as I write and I have to say that I’m impressed with how spot-on they got with the flavor.
Wooden Mini Bowl – Value: $8
This bowl is cute; I will probably use it as a ring-holder or small catch-all for earrings and coins or something. (The outside bottom half is painted – photo below.)
Here’s a better photo of the bowl – the bottom half is painted a pretty aqua shade.
5×7 “Confetti Moments” Art Print – value: $8
This is pretty and playful. I think it’s a stylish reminder to celebrate the little victories and small things.
Encouragement Card & Stickers from Hello Paper Co. – value: $2.50?
These items are listed as bonus items on the info card. I adore the stickers and I’m looking forward to sending the card to a friend!
Digital Bundle (not pictured)
I think including a digital bundle with this kind of box is really smart. This month, there’s a art print PDF, an inspiring wallpaper for your phone and desktop, an artsy, fill-in-the-blank 2016 manifesto PDF, and also a video from the founder.
Verdict: The first Firework Box was a lot of fun for me! It’s so colorful (seriously, I love the packaging) and the mission of empowering women is one I’m passionate about myself, so that makes me really happy. I think it’s smart to include the digital content, too. The value is tricky to evaluate, though, especially because the purpose of this box is not to provide you with material items or get you a good deal, but to provide inspiration, energy, and empowerment which are intangible things. The contents of the box itself add up to $28.75 this month, but there’s also the digital content to consider. I think the overall value of what this box is worth to you is very subjective to each individual. However, I’m personally excited to see what future Firework Boxes hold!
What do you think about the Firework Box? Are you going to grab next month’s “Self-Care” themed box?
