There was no card in this box so let’s get straight to the items!

House of Rym Just My Cup of Tea – Cup – Value $20

First up this month is a lovely porcelain teacup. It is printed with an imperfect scallop pattern in gray all the way around the cup. The handle is so delicate! It arrived inside a giftable box with a matching pattern printed on the outside. The pattern is very sweet and the size is great for a small cup of tea. I’m glad to know it’s also microwave and dishwasher safe!

House of Rym Can I Have Another Cup?- Saucer – Value $20

In addition to the teacup, my Heima Box also included a matching saucer. The plate is about 6 1/4 inches in diameter and a perfect fit for the teacup. My grandmother has a very fancy teacup and saucer collection she inherited from her mother, so sets like this always make me think of her.

A perfect match!

Halló Sápa Icelandic Angelica Herb Soap – Value $7

Last month’s Heima Box included also included a soap from this brand but this time it is a different fragrance. I’d never heard of Angelica Herb before but it’s been growing in Iceland for over 1,000 years and is known as a “super herb” for its enzymes and minerals. It has a refreshing, cool scent with a decent lather. It works great as a skin detoxifier, but like last month’s soap, is a little drying.

 

Lovewild Design Basil & Mint Seed Coins – Value $10

This set of seed coins is a welcome treat in this box. I’ve never grown herbs before but the window sill in my kitchen is perfect for them because it gets such great sunlight. I’ve seen handmade paper like this with seeds inside before but not letterpressed coins, what a nice touch! These would make a great gift as well. I’m excited to try my hand at growing basil and mint in my kitchen for use over the coming colder months. To plant, just place the coins in soil about 1 inch apart and water.

I will say that I was surprised to see a product designed and made in NYC in a Scandinavian/Nordic design themed box but I think the thought and design behind the coins suits the theme of home and garden well.

Verdict: This month’s Heima Box had a value of $57 which is a little less than twice the price of the box at $29. This is only my second Heima Box but I am impressed again and already looking forward to next month’s box. I’m loving the House of Rym products and am not bothered by seeing them in the box two months in a row since the designs are very different. I’m very set on bar soaps though from other boxes and would be glad to not see soap in the future. The seed coins are a nice touch and I’ve already picked up a planter to put them in.

Thank you.

Jess

Oops what happened?! Anyways just got my October box and I’m THRILLED. I’m so glad I stuck with this box. The owner truly cares about finding your style and the value is incredible. She will work with you based on Pinterest and Instagram. I don’t work for them I’m just really excited about this box!

I am in interested in the viking age and watching the show Viking started me on it of course…When I think of Iceland and Scandinavian/Nordic anything I am pulled in. This box would be amazing if they put a few other little things in the box with the story about them…Things from NY is off even if the idea is so cool. This could really be so much more.,…

Alex

Cute! Does it indicate on the cup or saucer where it’s made or if it’s made in PRC China?

Kara

They now also have an Eclectic Box and Nordic Farmhouse Box. I think they are available for October. I always drool over everything the post on Instagram.

Lynne

Seeds are difficult to import. If they wanted to include, a US based company was the only way.

Melissa W.

$40 for one small teacup and saucer? Those prices seem inflated to me… Easy pass..

Lori

It was the minimalists box for $29….shipping is free in the US
