Each month has a theme, and May's is "Cutie Fruity"!

On the flip side, you'll find a list of what's in your box.

Fruity Washi Tape

If you've read my other stationery reviews, you know I love a good washi tape. I have many already, but any featuring watermelon, kiwi, pineapple, and lemon! What a great tape for summer!

Jumbo Metallic Fruity Fridge Magnet

This large watermelon magnet comes stuck to a fun designed card declaring that "It's cool to be juicy!"It's about 3" in diameter and sturdy enough to hold a photo of your last summer BBQ onto your fridge.

Banana Eraser in a Cozy Fruit Basket

Hello, little banana friend! I actually thought this was a corn at first because of the green "peel", but it's actually a very unripe banana. I'm a sucker for cute erasers and this one comes in its own fruit basket, straight from the farmer's market with a face and tiny bow! How cute!!!

Fruit Cocktail Coaster Kit with Drink Recipes

I'm always in need of coasters in my house, so this set of five heavy paper pineapple coasters are a welcomed addition.

The kit includes three different fruity cocktail recipes to beat the heat! They all sounds so tasty!!

Each coaster has a double-sided design, and five red cocktail straws are included as well.

Fruit Punch Necklace

The 1.5" wooden kiwi dangles from a thin leather-like rope with three decorative rubber beads to add some subtle color to this necklace. I actually think this is quite cute, and I love kiwi!

Here's a shot to get the idea of length. Not too long, not too short.

Fruity Mounted Art Print

Next, we have an art print (that measures 8" including the mat) from the designers at Boxcitement. This is a bit more abstract than the other items, so you could brighten up your workspace without having an overt fruit theme.

Square Fruit Notecards- set of 3 with envelopes

Notecards are always a good idea to have on hand to jot down a note to a loved one. These three, featuring strawberries, watermelon, and green apples are quite adorable. I like the bold design on the front, coupled with the "just wanted to say" prompt on the lined back.

"Once Upon a Lime" Bookmark

I don't read a ton, but when I do, my bookmark usually consists of a receipt, or a scrap of paper ripped from something. That means this is the only actual bookmark I now own! Who doesn't love a good pun?

Set of Five Large Fruit Stickers

Last but certainly not least, we have these large fruit stickers! Green leaves adorn the cherry, pear, lemon, lime, and apple that have a fun little pattern on half of the fruit! Where would you slap one of these?

Verdict: Boxcitement brought a lot of juicy flavor to this month's box with their fruity designs. My favorite item is probably a toss up between the washi tape and the stickers, but they really got me with the banana eraser and the notecards too. The art print was not really for me, but I can pass it on to a friend who's looking for something to hang. Having this mailed from the UK for $30.60 USD ($22.95 + $7.65 shipping) is a little too steep for me, but I appreciate the unique designs only found through this subscription. The necklace is probably the most expensive item, so if it's up your alley, it may be worth it for you.
