Smudge Ink Greeting Card – $4.50
I love the design of this birthday card. Who thinks to put party hats on humpback whales? Smudge Ink apparently!
Oh man… the only thing that would make these better is covering them with dark chocolate – these are seriously delicious. There is nothing I love more than salted caramel…well maybe a few things, but not many!
The inside of the birthday card says: “Hope your birthday is a splash.”
This shower gel is all natural and scented with essential oils. The very first scent I smelled when I took a whiff was the peppermint. This is a very strongly scented mint body wash, but it also has rosemary extract as well. The base of the shower gel is coconut oil and olive oil, with some aloe vera thrown in too. I found it to be pretty moisturizing, and very invigorating.
Equal Exchange Rooibos Tea – $4.50
This tea is an herbal, caffeine free tea. I love getting herbal teas, because sometimes I need a hot cuppa, but I don’t want to stay up all night. Equal Exchange is a fair-trade company that works to further relationships that are beneficial for consumers and producers. All teas from Equal Exchange are cultivated in India, Sri Lanka, and South Africa.
I made this tea with some sugar and cream, and I really enjoyed it! Rooibos is one of my favorite caffeine free teas because it’s still pretty strong, and it holds up well to sugar and cream.
These coconut butter cookies are really delicious. They’re similar to a shortbread cookie, with a coconut flavor that works really well alongside the Equal Exchange tea!
Verdict: I really enjoyed this shipment from Hammock Pack. Vacation and travel are my absolute favorite things, and Hammock Pack lets you get a taste from home. I enjoyed all of the items in this shipment, and since they’re all from Massachusetts companies, I think they did a great job with the curation.
The value of this Hammock Pack is about $31.70 for a $32 box. I think that the value of this box is reasonably good.
