Artistry Gifts offers three different subscriptions – a bimonthly gift wrap box, a monthly themed box, and a themed box plus gift wrap subscription. My review is for the monthly themed box. The monthly themed subscription box consists of 4-5 wonderful giftable items that you can gift or keep for yourself! Items may be candles, spa items, home, jewelry, snacks, stationary and more!

The shipping box size changes to accommodate that month’s items. The items are wrapped in tissue paper making it fun to unwrapped. It also makes for an excellent presentation for gifting. My 7-year old and I usually take turns unwrapping the gifts. This time, I was able to unwrap them all by myself!

I love the January box! I was smiling the entire time I opened it.

The information card describes the items in the box. Artistry Gifts is not a high value box. I love it because it makes my heart sing. I almost always use everything in the box. The few times I didn’t, I gifted the items.


Artistry Gifts offers a choice most months. This month subscribers were able to select a wood tray. I had a hard time selecting between the Lemon Basil, Seashore, and Rosemary Lavender. I almost missed out on selecting my tray!

The Michel Design Works Lavender Rosemary Wooden Vanity Tray ($26)  was packaged in its original packaging including styrofoam on the corners and tissue wrapped around the tray. The tray is ready to gift or to keep for yourself.

I read the email concerning the January Spoiler and paid no attention to the size of the tray. I was pleasantly surprised by the size. It is 7.75″ x 12.25″ x 1.5″.

It is beautiful. I selected the Rosemary Lavender because my favorite color is lavender. I also love working with herbs and in my garden.

There is a handle on each side of the tray.

I will be placing the tray on my dresser. My dresser and corner are my little oasis of femininity in a house with two boys.

The beautiful oversized Michel Design Kitchen Towel ($8.50) is made out of 100% cotton. It was sent in its original packaging making it easy to gift or keep for yourself!

I had no clue what else was going to be in the box. I was ecstatic to see the towel matched the tray! The detailed design along with its durability makes it a great kitchen towel to display and use.

The towel measures 20″ x 28″. It’s large enough to clean up spills.

The kitchen towel will become softer and more absorbent with each washing. I’m very happy with the towel. I checked with Artistry Gifts, and there are variations.

The Deborah Miichel Collection Natural Hand Cream Lavender Rosemary

The Made-in-England The Deborah Michel Collection Natural Hand Cream in Lavender Rosemary is beautifully packaged.  The detailed packaging makes the hand cream an excellent gift or an item for you to enjoy. I was thrilled that the hand cream not only matched the towel and tray but was lavender rosemary scented!

The hand cream is enriched with shea butter making it a rich, heavy cream. A little bit goes a long way! I can smell the lavender first which then blends into the rosemary making for a mysterious, intoxicating scent. I confirmed with Artistry Gifts that variations were sent out.

Yummy! The Abdallah Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Heart ($1.50) is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. The chocolate company is 4th generation owned and is in Minnesota, USA.  The second picture in the post shows it wrapped in a red foil wrapper. This is what the heart looks like after a 7-year-old touches it a few times.

Yummy!

My family loves Artistry Gifts goodies, and all had to try a piece. The consensus was delicious!

Inis arose eau de parfum

The Inis Arose eau de parfum ($2) did not disappoint. I was introduced to Inis by Artistry Gifts and enjoy their scents. The made in Irish eau de parfum is not a rose tonic perfume. It is a complex blend of scents that ultimately smells uplifting. Inis calls it “the magic of love.” I like it and will wear it.

I am ecstatic over the January Artistry Gifts Box. It’s a wonderfully curated box that brushes away the winter blahs. I love being able to select my tray and am happy that it worked out that everything matches. There are variations to the box. Everything is useful and enjoyable at the same time. I immediately purchased the Valentine’s Day Special Edition Box as a Galentine Gift for my sister. Artistry Gifts is a box that I enjoy with my family and also a subscription box that I feel comfortable ordering as a gift.

    I received the choices for February a few minutes ago. I’m happy. I was able to pick something out that matched my little corner of femininity.

  • Nancy M.

    Your tray is gorgeous! I REALLY had a hard time choosing but I went with the Lemon Basil. It arrived after last weekends blizzard and it really seemed like a touch of summer. My towel and hand cream also matched– I was curious to know if all the trays had matches. I do have to say, though, that I thought the candy was a bath or shower bomb so it wasn’t immediately consumed– for some reason I didn’t receive an info sheet this time. The Lavender was my second choice, and I am very happy with my Lemon!! Waiting to see if there is a “choice” item for February!

    • PA Anna

      Thank you! The Lemon Basil tray sounds beautiful and was my second choice. It must had been a joy to open after the blizzard. I did ask AG if everything matched prior to writing my review. Almost everything matched. Pretty amazing!

      Same here! I am waiting to see if there is a “choice” for February.

    Wonderful box with beautiful items and photos of said items!

    I’m not surprised you ended up choosing the Lavendar tray (purple!) and luckily that is a scent you love as well. 🙂 That tray or the Sweet Peony would go best in my bedroom, but the Golden Pear or Lemon Basil towel would go best in my kitchen… And the hand cream scent I’d like best would probably be Seashore (clean be beachy smell?) or Sweet Peony – except what would Black Florentine smell like??

    Clearly I’m high maintenance!

    • Megan

      I got the black Florentine and the scent is honey almond. I love it. It’s my favorite scent ever. My towel was peony which I really liked too.

      • PA Anna

        Thank you for commenting! The hand cream scent sounds amazing.

    • PA Anna

      Heat – I think we are all high maintenance at some point when it comes to sub boxes! I have my moments 🙂

    • Pnut

      Not High maintenance Heat. Just really think out choices that are very important! I have to admit our thought processes are alike I really laughed out loud when I read your comment!

  • Mailbox Junkie

    Oh man I love me some lavender! It actually grows really well here at my house where most stuff doesn’t! Ah the scared spot of femininity in a house of boys!

    • PA Anna

      It must smell wonderful when you walk by the lavender.

  • Pnut

    I enjoy these reviews but I am surprised you did not go with the ocean theme! I was thinking of subscribing to this when you did the review with e giftwrapping paper but when I unpack (still unpacking) I did not realze how much giftwrap I have!!! A good portion was some scrapbook quality wrapping paper that I got on sale but I do not scrapbook. Just wanted to mention it if you like wrapping paper with some weight to it. Until next time Splendilicious….

    • PA Anna

      It was a difficult decision! The seashore tray would have matched the seashore items from last year. Thanks for the tip on the scrapbook paper.

      • Pnut

        Anytime 😉 Did you note that I made the comment Splendilicous above and what posts the next day? I am telling you I gots magical foreseeing powers 😉

        • PA Anna

          I noticed! You do have the magical foreseeing powers 🙂

  • AngelaR

    This box is beautifully curated. Adding the rose in the pictures was a nice artistic touch.

    • PA Anna

      Thank you!
