The Bonus Box is an extra “thank you” to annual subscribers, available when you sign up with the coupon link at the bottom of the page.
The Bonus Box had the same luxurious presentation as the monthly boxes.

The bonus box’s theme was embracing ROMANCE + CREATIVITY. A LOVE IS ART canvas was hidden away beneath the velvety padding.
Inside, you’ll find items we adore, from tech to travel, culinary to craft cocktails. We aim to bring you the best the world has to offer, right to your doorstep. Thanks for joining us on the journey.
This box departed from the monthly boxes in one major respect – It didn’t contain the lovely booklet that accompanies the box each month. The booklet is a real treat, and it is always a highlight of each box. It contains lovely photography and deep background on each item in the box and the folks behind it. This special bonus had only a card to let you know it was the bonus.
Everything in the Robb Vices bonus box!
Love is Art Canvas and Paint Kit. To encourage couples to depict their intimate moments through art, this kit was created by an abstract artist named Jeremy Brown. It contains non-allergenic canvas and non-toxic, washable paint. Think of it as a giant finger painting kit, except you and a very close friend aren’t limited to just using your hands. The kit also can be used to create less risqué art projects, if you so desire.
Along with a giant canvas, you also receive a plastic drop cloth to keep your things protected from unwanted paint splatter, as well as disposable slippers.
There was an information card that provides more specific instructions in using the kit. The concept behind it is quite interesting!
Simply put, the LOVE IS ART kit includes everything a couple needs to craft a one-of-a-kind abstract painting while being intimate with one another. What is left is a unique painting that represents that special moment. It can then be stretched, framed and hung on the wall – a lasting reminder of the love and passion that was shared. The kit also provides a unique bonding experience for the couples involved, as they work together as a team to craft their own unique masterpiece.
Spiced Vanilla Glaze Massage Oil ($30) The next item is a combination of coconut and almond oils infused with bourbon vanilla bean and spices. The result when used for massaging is magnificent – the scent is sensual, plus it gives the body a nice, warming effect. This pairs nicely with the art kit, as it is a perfect way to get relaxed, revitalized, and into the mood for “painting!” Shown beside it is a mesh scrubber for use after your art session.
Davis Estates 2012 Merlot ($50) This wine opens in luxurious aromas of baked blackberry cobbler and spicy cinnamon-clove, while its flavor is a combination of creamy vanilla, nuts, and wood. It’s fruity and juicy, but smooth and oaky as well.
This wine was produced and bottled by Davis Estates Napa Valley, California and it has 14.8% alcohol content. I like the choice of a Merlot here — it is a potent and flavorful varietal, but it carries huge, jammy flavors that sweeten the palate and make it appealing to even those that shy from bold wines.
This wine is a perfect pair for lasagna or chicken parmigiana, perfect comforting, yet romantic meals!
K+M Extra Virgin Chocolate 75% Peru & 75% Ecuador ($19.97) Two luxurious chocolate bars are also included in the bonus box! K+M differs from most bars in its substitution of EVOO in place of cocoa butter.
The result is delicious, imparting a superb creaminess and wonderful mouthfeel. Amazingly, the EVOO leaves no green notes and doesn’t disturb the flavor balance of the cocoa. The bars are luxurious from start to finish — even the packaging is elegant!
On the left is the Peru blend, a smooth and velvety chocolate bar with fruity, floral notes and a sweet tannin finish. The second one is the Ecuador blend, boasting of earthy, woodsy notes and a clean finish. Both are crafted using a unique process that preserves the cocoa’s natural antioxidants.
The distinct characteristics of each chocolate varietal really came through in the final product.
This bonus box from Robb Vices is quite a treat! The curation gave off a luxurious vibe, and of course everything lived up to the romantic and creative theme. My favorite has to be the chocolates and the wine, they suit my taste very well and I can’t wait to be able to share them with my wife!
