These are the holidays we will be celebrating next month with Unboxing the Bizarre:
June 4 – Hug Your Cat Day
June 5 – Hot Air Balloon Day
June 20 – American Eagle Day
June 29 – Camera Day
Wow! Those are certainly obscure holidays!
The reverse side of each holiday card has some information on the item they sent for that holiday, some trivia about the holiday, and some suggestions for celebrating.
Westland Purrfect Together Cat Salt and Pepper Shakers – Value $9.90
Awwwww! Look at how sweet these kitties are! I feel so undeserving of these awesome salt and pepper shakers. I have a cat, but she won’t hug me. Here she is:
This is Shadow, the Stank Cat. Believe me, I’ve tried hugging her, with emotionally and physically painful results. I guess on June 4 I will just season food and longingly watch this video instead.
GSC Copper & Gem Collectible Hot Air Balloon Windchime – Value $31.39
This was my favorite thing in the box this month. Isn’t it beautiful? It has a lovely sound, too. I love wind chimes and I love hot air balloons! Maybe some day I will get to go for a ride. I could easily end up one of those old women who has hundreds of wind chimes all around her house!
Westland Bronze Eagle Pencil Holder – Value $23.99
Whoa, this is a serious pencil holder for a serious bird holiday. It’s really nice, but it definitely has a masculine feel to it, so I gave it to my husband. He likes it because it’s nice and heavy, and unlike the plastic cup he was using, it won’t fall over every time he pulls a pencil out of it.
Caniam Canon Style 24-105 Lens Travel Thermos Mug – Value $11.99
I’ve seen this mug before in subscription boxes, but never got one somehow. We can always use more travel coffee mugs, and this one is especially clever!
Verdict: This was our second month of Unboxing the Bizarre, and we are having a great time with it! I just completely love my new chimes and promptly hung them out by the front door. I simply can’t wait until Hot Air Balloon Day! Actually, I like everything we received this month, plus I’m noticing that the things they send can also make nice gifts if we get something we can’t use. The value of everything this month adds up to about $78, which is great for a $49 box! It’s wonderful having so many awesome things to celebrate!
