This is a review of the TinselBox, not the TinselBox XL.  


Woodland Hare Cotton Tea Towel – $11.82

This is the cutest tea towel ever, and so appropriate for Easter.  I went down a rabbit hole (pun intended) on their site, and found SO many cute kitchen items.  I may need forget this site exists.  Anyway, this is a very large, cotton tea towel that is perfect for sprucing up your house for Easter!

Sakura Pen-Touch Calligrapher 5.0 mm Gold Paint Marker – $5.24

This is a really fun addition to the box, and you’ll see why at the end of this review.  I tried this marker out, and the paint flows pretty consistently!  It’s also easy to hold and use.  I love it!


Peeps Marshmallow Bunnies – $1.00

I had no idea that an 8-ct package of Peep was so rare to find…Amazon is selling them for close to $7.00, the Peeps website didn’t carry them, and neither did Target.  The things you find out when you’re trying to find the products for reviews – it’s astounding friends!   (Possibly an overstatement of the facts, but hey, I yam what I yam.)

I am not a Peeps lover but these are very fresh and soft!  I have a feeling my niece will love the rest of these.  There’s nothing that says Easter candy to me more than Peeps, even if I don’t prefer them, so these were a perfect pick for this box!

Monahan Papers Greeting Cards – Vintage Easter Card – $1.50

This is a beautiful card!  It reminds me of the book about the Velveteen Rabbit, and I loved that story as a little girl.  This card is so pretty that I think it would be perfect to frame and keep around for an Easter decoration!



Be Creative Egg Coloring Kit – $10.00?

This kit includes egg dye, gold bunny stickers, a black Sharpie, a rubber band, and an egg dipper thingy (no idea what the technical name for this is).  They also included instructions on how to design your own eggs in the beautifully designed information booklet.  There are options for dyeing your eggs, and then options for decorating your eggs dye free.  One of the suggestions is to use the bunny stickers, and begin dotting around it with the gold paint marker, making the dots smaller as you get further away.  It’s so pretty, and so simple! 

Verdict:  This box has an approximate value of $29.56.  I think that is a great value, and I loved all of the items!  I think these have made me more excited about Easter, and looking forward to everything that holiday brings.  One thing to note, is that they try to plan their boxes so they will work for everyone, regardless of whether they celebrate the holiday or not.  With that said, they also notify subscribers of the upcoming theme, and you can always skip that box!  

I think this is an awesome box!  What do you think of TinselBox?  Will you be giving them a try?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. I have gotten the TinselBox XL since this past December. They have all been fabulous, but I might have to say that Easter has been my favorite! (and Easter is not usually my favorite holiday). The bunny tea towel is gorgeous, and I truly feel inspired to make beautiful Easter eggs this year! The XL box also came with an amazing colorful rabbit garland, handmade out of paper and stitched together. I don’t normally decorate for Easter, but once I put the garland up, I was inspired, and went a little crazy buying more decorations at Target! LOL

  2. Love the March box from Tinsel Box!! I almost died of happiness when I saw the kitchen towel!! It is gorgeous!! I don’t want my kids touching it so it is pinned up for my enjoyment! I have already gotten so many complements!! The beautiful gold pen is so fun, but I think I will save it for something better than eggs. I love the ideas for egg decorations. So fun to do this with the kids!!
    This card is adorable and I will send it out to a dear friend. Easter is such a special time for friends and family! Beautiful box to get me into Spring.

  3. I’m waiting to see why the pen was a great addition to the box 🙁 did i miss it? Lol. And yes STALE PEEPS ARE THE BEST!!! YUM!!!!!

    • They provided egg decorating ideas with the materials in the box, but check out their blog too: OMG, I never thought to use a gold pen on Easter eggs, but they are so gorgeous! I can just hear myself now, “No kids, put that egg down. These are for mommy to decorate.” 🙂

  4. This box is amazing, and the customer service for this company is the best, like they go above and beyond!!
    I actually am in love with this box since I live overseas most of the time, and i know how hard it is to find these kinds of things for celebrating the holidays when you live in another country! This subscription actually has reasonable international shipping, and that is the best!!! If you know anyone (especially if they have kids) that lives overseas, give them this subscription as a gift, there is nothing like a box from “home” with great stuff like this to make holidays special even when your overseas!

  5. I don’t eat Peeps anymore, but I used to like them “stale”. A former coworker and I once slit open packages to find out how many days they need to be open to be the perfect amount of chewy and crispy and it was 10 days. ?

    • Omg! I thought I was the only one who did this! lol

  6. I was so excited when I saw a box that says they are doing seasonal and holiday decor items. But really disappointed in the box as it did not seem to follow what they promised. Peeps, sharpie and egg decorating kit are something I can get at my grocery store. I also feel the estimated value was a little high. I was really hoping for some knick knacks and actual decorating items. Maybe the larger box has different items. The packaging was pretty.
