I’ve been eyeing the BirchBox Home boxes for quite some time now and finally decided to bite the bullet and order the Snow Day Box a couple weeks ago. Although all of the items were listed out ahead of time (something you don’t typically find out until you receive the box), I really liked the products I saw.
This special edition BirchBox came with lots of confetti/shredded paper. Normally this isn’t something I’m a huge fan of, but since it had the “snow” effect, I loved it. Living in Florida, a snow day isn’t something I’d expect to have, (I think the last time it snowed in my town was before I was born!) I did experience snow days in college and the items included would absolutely be perfect for a snow day. Or in my case, maybe a hurricane day!
You can never have enough pairs of socks. And in my opinion, the crazier/more fun the design is, the better. These pink zebra socks ($12) from Happy Socks are pretty comfortable, and of course, fashionable. I love this design but I tabbed through some of their other options on their website and found so many others I want to add to my colorful sock collection as well.
I haven’t heard of the Chantecaille brand before, but am looking forward to trying out the Flower Infused Cleansing Milk ($5) and Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask ($8). I wish the samples were a little bigger but considering the value of the box and all of the other items included, it makes sense.
Malin + Goetz Votive
I’m a firm believer that you can never have enough candles. Seriously love them. I was pretty excited to find a Malin + Goetz Votive ($14) in this box – I’ve heard great things about this company! I was hoping for the Dark Rum scent, but contrary to what you might think, the Cannabis scent I got instead actually smells pretty nice – sort of like a men’s cologne.
Mox Botanicals Body Soak
Filled with green tea and its antioxidants, the Clementine Body Soak ($5) is supposed to be great for baths. Kind of a nice reminder to kick back and relax in some bubbles.. and clementines! It also smells really good so I think some relaxation time is in order soon.
Hot Cocoa Powder & Cinnamon Marshmellow
What more perfect to include in a Snow Day box than hot cocoa and marshmallows?! I haven’t tried these out just yet as I’ve been hoping for a cooler day. Luckily for me, it looks like we’re getting a cold front later this week, hooray! I’m so excited to try out the Askinosie Chocolate Cocoa Powder ($3) and Three Tarts Cinnamon Marshmallows ($2.50). Yum!
Jonathan Adler Fireplace Matches
I LOVE Jonathan Adler designs, so these fireplace matches ($10) were one of the big sellers of this box for me. I don’t have a fireplace (pretty pointless for Florida) and am not typically a fan of matches. But this cute design and the fact that these matches are a lot longer (less chance of burning yourself) make these perfect!
S.W. Basics Lip Balm
Lip balm is an extremely popular item to include in subscription boxes and like candles, I love trying new ones! Made of 5 ingredients (one of them being cocoa butter), the Cinnamon-flavored S.W. Basics Lip Balm ($4) is my new favorite! There are 3 other flavors offered – Citrus, Cocoa and Peppermint. I definitely want to try all of them out!
Nowadays we play games more on our devices than we do traditional old-fashioned board games. But this Mini-Scrabble game ($36) exclusive to BirchBox is not only great for a winter (or hurricane) day, but also great to bring along on trips! Also, this game alone is almost equivalent to the price of the Snow Day box!
L’Occitane Hand Cream
I don’t know about you, but in the winter my skin needs some extra TLC on a cold day. One of my favorite products is the L’Occitane Hand Cream ($12) so I was very happy to find a travel size tube of it included. This will absolutely come in handy in a couple months when I venture to the mountains!
I paid $39 (plus shipping) for this Limited Edition BirchBox Home: Snow Day Box and the contents retailed out to about $111.50. AMAZING. As previously mentioned, although I knew the contents ahead of time, I was still so excited to open the box up and have the items. This is definitely one of my favorite boxes of all time. I can’t wait to see what comes next from BirchBox Home!
