Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box Review + Coupon – March 2017
Yogi Surprise Jewelry is a monthly jewelry subscription that delivers you two pieces of yoga-inspired jewelry and a snack with each shipment.
Yoga has been an on-and-off part of my life for several years now. Part of my 2017 resolutions are focused on bringing it back, as well as the practice of meditation and mindfulness. I’m excited to see how the pieces in this box can support that journey!

The theme this month is “Time to Blossom”. Spring is back (even if it doesn’t always look like it outside), and it’s time to ground ourselves in preparation.
To help in the process, this box provides a yoga sequence, as well as jewelry that features lava rock and tiger eye. Lava comes from the depths of the earth, so it’s not surprising that it’s known for its grounding qualities. Coupled with balancing tiger eye, these stones should help inspire a more settled, sure mood for my March.
Lava Rock and Tiger Eye Mala – Listed Value $86.00
Isn’t this a gorgeous piece? Worn long around my neck, the tassel hits just below my belly button. I love the deep colors and the porous texture of the beads.
The idea of the mala is to essentially count the beads as you say your mantra. Obviously, there are a lot of beads, so doing this simple practice should help you focus and meditate. I really appreciate having these kinds of exercises to help guide my meditation, as my busy mind is easily distracted. It’s also interesting to stop and look at each bead individually, appreciating the small differences in their shape.
Lava Rock and Tiger Eye Adjustable Bracelet – Listed Value $38.00
This bracelet is sort of the “to go” version of the mala. I like how, when I catch a glimpse of these beads on my wrist, I immediately am reminded of my meditation practice. It’s a nice reminder to slow down and take a breath, even if I’m on the go.
Santosha Coconut & Hawaiian Pink Sea Salt Chocolate Bar, 1 oz. – Value $4.00
There’s a treat in the box as well. I love the pink packaging (pink to match the sea salt, get it?).
I love chocolate and dark chocolate, especially, so I was surprised that I really didn’t care for this bar. I’m not sure if it was the coconut or the sea salt, but the flavor had a sour quality to it that didn’t pair well with the bitterness of the dark chocolate.
There’s a spoiler for next month, too! This tree necklace looks perfect for Earth Day and beyond.
Verdict: My first thought with this box is whether the jewelry pieces are really worth quite as much as they say. Nicer stones like these can be a bit pricey, but to think the items in this box totaled $128.00 sounds unreasonably high. That said, I do think it’s well worth the $25.00 price! I loved the pieces I received, and I look forward to building my collection. The chocolate was a swing and a miss for me, but I’m not sweating it. The value came through in the jewelry for me, which is exactly how I’d hoped it’d be.
