Box of Happies is a monthly subscription of 3-5 handmade unique products made by different artists! This subscription been around for quite some time and I was happy to review the July box! This box has a unique feature – choose the exact months you want to receive a box, or get them all consecutively – it’s up to you!
Every month it comes in a nice plastic case. I love seeing really reusable items used as packaging.
Everything in the July box!
Turquoise Necklace ($8) I love seeing turquoise in boxes during the summer. This pendant is simple and pretty and can be layered or worn alone.
Stud Earrings ($8) I love these silver stud earrings! I would personally pay more than $8 for them so I’m not sure how they are priced! I will very likely wear these pretty frequently.
Silver Hook Bookmark ($6.50) Well I usually try to remember my page, but that never works! Very useful if you’re a reader.
Plain J Body & Home Lip Balm – Sangria ($3) I didn’t particularly care for the flavor of this lip balm, but I think I might like it as a candle, which they also make. The idea was fun, I guess I just don’t like wine-o lip balms!
Sewing & Scents Fabric Lipbalm Holder ($3.50) Cute idea, but in practice, I just couldn’t get the lip balm all the way in. The seller’s photo shows the lip balm (another brand) all the way in, so I think that container that they size for is smaller or mine is sewn wrong, but I found a different lip balm that fits in – it’s such a cute idea and it’s totally gross to find lip balm all over your bag!
This is such a cute box, and to be honest, I think their products are undervalued compared to the values I see in other artisan boxes. The total value of the July box was $29 – right at the cost of the box including shipping, but that doesn’t include the value of the reusable box either, which is very handy. I really liked this box and the super cute packaging. The balm not fitting in the holder was a minor whoopsie – but you just have to use one of your other ones!
