sprinkles

Holly Jolly Treat Toppers  – $4.00?

These treat toppers are adorable and will be so nice to add to the cookies we leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve this year.

cozy

Coffee Cozy – $8.00

This handmade coffee cozy made by Etsy seller Sweet Home Kentucky is great for keeping your hands protected when holding a hot mug or to-go cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The snowflake design is perfect for winter.

mug

#christmaslover Mug – $15.95

I love this hashtag mug! This will be my go-to mug all holiday season for soups and teas. This was made exclusively for My Christmas Crate and can be purchased directly on their website.

lotion

Green + Lovely Chai Spice Lotion (2 oz.) – $7.00

This lotion smells just like the chai lattes I like to get from Starbucks. Yum! It felt moisturizing on my skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. I’m happy to learn about this Etsy seller, there’s some great stuff in their shop.

Vintage Santa Framing Art – $5.00?

It says on the information card that this art is by Jodi Lee, but no other information is given such as a website or an artist bio. I’m guessing on the value. I like this vintage sketch of Father Christmas; it would be nice to frame.

oil-sample

Young Living Oil – free sample

A recipe card for peppermint brownies and a sample of Young Living peppermint oil was included.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my first My Christmas Crate and I think this subscription box is a great idea. I know a lot of people who can never get enough of Christmas-related items and I can see this box being a success if they can continue to find unique items and maintain a good value. This month’s value was about $40 and had a nice mix of modern and vintage feeling items. My favorite item was definitely the mug!

  1. Peppermint essential oil in brownies? Eh, I’d still be iffy about using my high quality organic oils yet alone a brand like Living Young..

  2. This would be a great box for my DIL who is counting down for Christmas already….

  3. I thought it was a cute box until the young living ad…

  4. Please please please do not put essential oils in brownies……

    • I agree….that sounded really wrong. Maybe some peppermint extract..but not essential oils

    • Agree! PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! So irresponsible to put this recipe in the box! Essential oils are not food flavoring! Essential oils should only be ingested if you’re under the strict care of a CERTIFIED AROMATHERAPIST. YL reps are NOT certified aromatherapists.

      • You hit the nail on the head, Amy. It’s very irresponsible. There is so much misinformation out there right now and not enough testing has been done on ingesting essential oils. The certified aromatherapist I know is highly against ingesting essential oils because its not necessary and dangerous in most cases.

        • The MLM essential oil companies frustrate me so much! Essential oils should be treated like medication, especially if ingesting. You should NEVER just casually ingest! PLEASE don’t use EO’s as water or food flavorings. Don’t put a drop on your tongue, in your drink, in your recipe, etc unless a CERTIFIED AROMATHERAPIST advises you to do so after hearing your complete medical history. Also, don’t just apply these oils “neat” to your skin. They need to be diluted with a carrier oil first (the percentage of dilution varies based on age)… And please do not diffuse peppermint around young children! Things like this make me crazy!

    • Thank you for the head’s up! I thought that was strange, but I know next to nothing about essential oils. I appreciate the warning…
