Boxcitement – August 2017: Drama Queen

For July, Boxcitement is one for the drama queens – whether you’re the occasional diva, or fabulous fulltime, the collection of treasures will appeal. All items have been curated to enhance any performance and subscribers will adore the playful contents of this month’s box. Let the drama unfold.

This stationery box is always bursting with an array of gifts, but still manages to bundle together in a box small enough that it can fit through a mail slot. All arrived wrapped in tissue and adorned with a sprinkle of paper confetti. Opening a Boxecitement package is a pleasure and a monthly treat for any lover of small and pretty things.

Boxcitement: July 2017 – Drama Queen
• A mobile phone charger stand
• Glitter
• A notebook
• Three notecards and envelopes
• A mini wall print
• A bracelet
• A bag of retro sweets
 This minimalistic wooden mobile phone stand is something to prop on your bedside table – fitting in with the box’s theme, it’s embossed with ‘I’m waiting for the call’. This is a Boxcitement exclusive and something that we could all put to use (unless you have something much more elaborate and expensive already for this purpose). In my case, I usually cast my phone aside in a very unceremonious manner, but this is a good idea, especially when the alarm goes off and I fumble in darkness.
 How better to shine than with some facial glitter? This little star encases a sample of yellow glitter, which is perfect to shove in a pocket or toss in a handbag if you’re dashing off to a day festival or event (the trick is to use it with Vaseline). Or if you aren’t the flashy type, you could use this glitter for crafting instead.
 This month’s stationery selection includes a small and handy notebook, a set of three notecards with envelopes and a mini wall print. These types of notebooks are all sorts of convenient for me, as I’m eternally grabbing for one to have on my person to jot down lists or ideas. The notecards are bold and emotive with some very dramatic proclamations (and each one comes with an envelope). The wall print is perfect to stick on a desk or dressing table to remind you that even when you’re feeling like a wreck or having a catastrophic day, things must go on.
And just in case the mini wall print doesn’t do the trick and lift your spirits, there’s this bracelet with a wooden pendant to remind you that, well, you’re fabulous.
Finally, no good subscription box could omit something sweet, so this small bag of retro sweets definitely does the trick to win me over. The Boxcitement team suggest that these treats can be consumed during a theatre interval, but mine didn’t last long enough to indulge in this ideal. Guess I’ll just have to hit up the confectionary stand yet again.

Boxcitement can be purchased as a one-off (£18), or as a subscriptions of three (£51), six (£96) or twelve month (£180) with P&P included. It can also be gifted, making it an easy present that delights for months to come. The monthly themes aren’t announced in advance, so every delivery is a guaranteed surprise. For this price, subscribers receive a sizable selection of curated items, giving them a lot to look forward to each month.

Our score: 9.6/ 10

Choc-full of surprises and occasionally a bit random, Boxcitement still keeps me delighted with its rainbow of fun – but inherently useful – pieces.
