I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

I’d love to see Jimmy Beans knitting subscription reviewed! It seems to me that they’re something slightly different with their box in that it’s a 3 month KAL for the first group this year. I haven’t seen what they’re going to move on to in April.

The Skin Care Subscription Box by Hanna Herbals on Etsy. She’s also on CrateJoy, but Etsy is ten dollars cheaper.

Does anyone recommend a planner sub box? The boxes I find here are out of business or more geared to cards.

Reply ButtonReply


I’m not a planner person, but I know there are tons of planner subscription boxes on Etsy. There are usually plenty of pictures and reviews so you can see if it’s something you might like. As for MSA boxes, have you tried Boho Berry?

Please, please, please! Look into “Gifts from the Universe” monthly subscription box. I would love to see it reviewed and also added to the swap site.

That sounds intriguing! I tried looking that up and couldn’t find it, although I did find similar-sounding boxes. Is that the exact name?

Reply ButtonReply


I googled that box name and also had a really hard time finding anything. But it turns out the url is just the name, giftsfromtheuniverse (dot) com.

I assumed it had to do with crystals given its appearance in the comments for this box, but unfortunately (for me) no. Here’s what their FAQ says

“What is a “Gifts from the Universe” box?
“Each Gifts from the Universe box contains 3 carefully chosen items, customized with messages of empowerment, life’s beauty, and the infinite possibilities that exist for your growth and happiness. These items may include, but aren’t limited to: coffee mugs, candles, journals, essential oil bath bombs, and the like. Inside each box there is also a specially chosen Note from the Universe printed on cardstock, suitable for framing or gifting.”
