December was time to celebrate the holidays with Our Southern Hearts! This product list has details on all the items inside.

Blackberry Bourbon Vanilla Jam – Value $10.00

This jam is deliciously rich and smooth. It’s not intensely sweet, but it is rich and desserty. I tried some on a simple piece of toast, but I think it’d be fantastic garnishing a slice of cheesecake!

The taste is great, and so is the packaging! I love the charming, small companies this box features.

Happy Y’allidays Candle – Value $9.00

Just when I thought I had a handle on holiday candle scents, this box took the “genre” in a totally different direction!

Read our review of the December 2016 Our Southern Hearts box!

Instead of berries, spice, and pine, this candle had a sweet, rich scent with a citrusy, almost lemon-like brightness to it. It definitely has a holiday vibe, but it’s a totally different aroma than I’ve ever experienced. So fun and unique!

Mini Leather Envelope – Value $12.00

At first, I was like, well, what do I use this for? But reading the product list, I realized that this pouch is perfect for tiny odds and ends like ear buds. I could also use this to keep all my holiday gift cards in one place!

It’s made of soft, steel-blue leather. I appreciate that this simple item has such nice quality and construction.

The envelope holds closed thanks to a brassy post that loops through a button hole.

This could also be a great way to package a gift certificate or other little trinket for a friend!

Leather Earrings – Listed Value $12.00

I like these earrings a lot! They’re made from diamond-shaped pieces of leather in a beautiful burgundy and textured white pattern that almost looks like marble.

The leather is just stiff enough to hold its shape as it dangles. These are so soft and light that they’re very comfortable to wear. And I love that they marry edgy and rustic style in a very cool way.

Spiced Hot Cocoa – Value $5.00

Cocoa is my faaaaavorite, gang. I’m excited that different twists on traditional cocoa are starting to emerge, including spiced cocoas, which have a delicious warmth about them.

This cocoa mix comes in a test tube with a cork stopper. There are even little bits of peppermint inside!

I mixed the cocoa mix with water as it instructed, and it made for a lovely cup of hot chocolate that was equal parts sweet and savory. I think it’d be even better with milk, though, for an extra thick, creamy taste!

Verdict: Our Southern Hearts is such a fun box. If you’re expecting really traditional southern items, maybe with more of a rustic charm to them, then you might not find exactly what you’re looking for here. But I just adore the fresh, modern representation of what southern culture and craftsmanship look like. There’s still plenty of charm in this box, but it’s coupled with new flavors, unexpected packaging, edgy shapes… I just think it’s so fun! The value of the items is about $48.00, which is over the $39.95 price. My only wish is that the cute pouch had more purpose to it and that there was more than one cup’s worth of cocoa. (Did I mention I LOVE cocoa?)

What do you think of the Our Southern Hearts box?

  1. I love those earrings, and I am intrigued by the candle. Thanks for the review.

  2. I wish they had more than like 8 items to pick from in their shop. I would def. utilize that coupon with more choices.

  3. Just wanted to point out that the 6.50 is not for the leather envelope on the etsy site. It’s for expedited shipping on any of their shop items. The cute little leather case is $12.00. I went to buy one and realized what the 6.50 actually was. It’s a little tricky. :/

  4. Thanks for reviewing this box. I had subbed to Georgia Crafted (and loved it) for a while, but cancelled because the variety and value has been steadily declining. I’ll have to try this one!
