Birchbox Snow Day
I love the cute, reusable outer box!
Everything is nestled nicely in squigglies. I was very disappointed to see that they were plain white squigglies instead of the ones shown on pre-release reviews and on the Snow Day box product page. It doesn't make a difference in the product but the sparkly gold packing (you can see it in the product photo above) makes a nicer gift in my opinion.
Jonathan Adler Flame Fireplace Matches ($10) Each container holds 50 fireplace matches. I was excited to get these because I have candles that I can't light with my lighter. Actually they were probably the deciding factor in my purchase of the box!
Malin + Goetz Travel Candle in Dark Rum or Cannabis ($14) I originally wrote: The sleek dark rum candle has top notes of bergamot and plum that mellows to a body of bay rum and leather middle notes. Completing the exotic mix, base notes of amber-patchouli and vanilla provide a balanced finish. Hope I get that one!EEK! I got the stanky Cannabis! Actually it just smells like aftershave, very manly. I may gift it to an un-named in-law none the less!
Askinosie Chocolate Natural Cocoa Powder ($2.50) Same cocoa used in Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream. YUM! I can't wait to make 2 perfect cups of cocoa with my little ones on a snow day! I'm saving this for a special snowed-in occasion!
Three Tarts Cinnamon Marshmallows ($2.20) These oversize marshmallows make for a sugary afternoon pick me up.
SCRABBLE¬ģ Birchbox Edition Mini Game Set ($36) If you're into Scrabble, obviously you should get this box, because it's only 2 bucks more than the game!
Happy Socks Knee High Socks ($14) These are silly and fun!
Mox Botanicals Matcha & Clementine Body Soak ($4.50) The fast-dissolving salts release their natural oils into the bath with you, so your skin emerges soft, smooth, and lightly scented. Perfect for a snowy spa day!
Chantecaille Flower Infused Cleansing Milk and Chantecaille Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask. ($5+7.90) Milk: rosewater-based formula whisks away all traces of makeup while rehydrating and calming troubled skin. Mask: intensely healing two-in-one mask. I was surprised to get two tubes instead of a tube and a pot. It's easier to get product out of a pot.
SW Basics Lip Balm ($3.75) The balm comes in Cinnamon or Peppermint, and I bought the box knowing I wouldn't use either. This goes in the husband pile!
L'OCCITANE Shea Butter Hand Cream ($4) Yay! I calculated this off the normal travel size, not the full size. Small containers actually have very pricey packaging. Who doesn't love this? Nobody!
I couldn't help myself! There are only 2 M's so I played a blank tile!! That is a seriously high value word!
The¬†Birchbox Limited Edition Snow Day Box looks perfect for just that – a snow day! My husband & I will enjoy playing this mini scrabble game while I assiduously avoid the Vermont snow!If you’re looking for a kit besides Cynthia Rowley to add onto your purchase, check the Holiday Shop for more! FYI, the Head of the Class box is still available if you’re looking for a teen/tween add-on!
