Every month, your candle comes usually wrapped in a square of fabric, but since December they’ve been sending drawstring bags instead. This snowflake and fox print is SO cute!

Each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:

Now, on to the candle!

Eleventh Candle Co. Candle in Winter – Retail Value $12.50

This scent is a blend of evergreen trees, cinnamon, clove, and vanilla. AKA the perfect winter blend. This is officially one of my favorite winter/holiday scents of all time! And I love that this 100% soy wax, too!

Eleventh Candle Co. gives back, too:

Each candle is handcrafted, packaged, and shipped from our social enterprise shop in Columbus, Ohio.

When you purchase a candle, you’re changing lives—the once trafficked woman in Ohio is employed, a village in Ethiopia is supported and orphaned children are welcomed into homes.

And each Vella Box also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:

Aromafloria For Feet’s Sake Spa Foot Butter – 1 oz Value $3.25

This foot cream is all-natural, hydrating without being greasy (with a lot of foot creams, I feel like I have to wait a while for them to dry), and the peppermint scent is sweet and subtle! This is pretty much a perfect winter box extra!

Verdict: This month’s VellaBox has a value of about $15.75. I think the pricing is fair, and I love that there is an inexpensive candle box that works with lots of independent candlemakers! And I think they did a fab job with the January scent + bonus item – this box is perfect for staying cozy during the chilly January weather.

  1. Buyer beware! I never received my Jan box and they will not replace it! Tracking droppe off on Jan 16 and there is no sign of it. Super frustrating!!

    • Hi Kay,

      My name is Adam and I am the founder of Vellabox. I’m sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience and hope you will accept our sincerest apologies.

      As we pride ourselves on providing a great customer experience & superb customer support, this came as a surprise to me. We actively monitor all shipments en route and are typically proactive in reaching out to subscribers if there appears to be any issue with delivery.

      The experience you have described is far from our standard protocol for missing packages, and I would like to personally assist you with making things right.

      I am having trouble locating your support ticket regarding this issue in our helpdesk, so I do not have your contact info to contact you directly. Please send a brief email to [email protected] at your convenience and I will gladly assist in resolving this right away.
