Boxcitement April 2018 – Scandimania!

Boxcitement April 2018 – Scandimania!

It’s no secret that I have become rather fond of the box of loveliness through your letterbox that is Boxcitement. I’ve reviewed a few of their boxes now and I have really enjoyed seeing what they have included, as well as what the theme is each month. In some ways that might be a bad thing as my expectations have been set at a certain level. Luckily I really liked the latest box, and have already been putting parts of this to good use.

What’s in the box?

I love the fact that opening the box itself is a real treat. They come beautifully packaged and I love the little note, confetti and sticker holding it all together. In this month’s box there was:

 

  • A folding shopping bag
  • A porcelain owl pendant
  • A foxy earphone tidy
  • A set of Scandi-inspired notecards
  • Some Scandi-esque gift wrap
  • A set of paper straws
  • And a silver Lagom pin badge.

I was a little bit disappointed to not have the mini booklet that came in last month’s box, giving a bit of insight into what was in the box itself and why, but this is a minor point really.

The highlights

My standout favourite from this box was the earphone tidy. Partly because I am awful at keeping my earphones in any kind of working order, and partly because I am a fan of foxes. When I opened the little grey pouch these came in they really brought a smile to my face. They have been so helpful this week and I now no longer have a tangle of wires at the bottom of my bag!

I also really liked the shopping bag which as you can see from the main photo, looks a bit like a wallet, but when you unzip it, it opens up as a handy tote bag.

I’ve already been using this and it’s working well – despite its size it carries a lot and looks great considering I have a lot of navy in my wardrobe!

Usually whilst I like the stationery in the boxes it’s not usually one of my favourite things, however I really loved the notecards in this box. I’ve already sent two out!

I am also a big fan of the straws in this box. With the recent media coverage on the ban on plastic straws as well as more focus on reducing plastic I felt like these were a really clever addition. I plan to pop them in my bag and use them when I’m out and about.

This was a really fun box to receive and I am pleased that I’ve already found practical uses for so many of the treats. I think that there is a risk with these kind of boxes that you end up with a drawer of things you don’t need or use but I’ve found that everything in this box will definitely be used. Well done team Boxcitement!

Our score: 9.8/ 10

Another smash hit of a box from the team at Boxcitement. I would like to give a full 10/10 for everything but I don't think that's helpful when you are a box producer (you need things to aim for!) or for a subscriber (as I think that can set expectations high when in reality you won't always love 100% of everything every single time). The reason I have marked one point down on originality is because the whole 'Scandi thing' is pretty big and in some cases overdone... but I am being really picky as I did really enjoy this box a lot and would definitely recommend subscribing.
