Happy Christmas in July…okay, guess I’m a tiny bit late for that, but if you are the type of person who embraces the holiday spirit during the height of summer, you may also be a person who’d love a curated Christmas goods box. What do you get that hard-to-buy-for giftee who already has everything she needs? A lil Christmas in July doesn’t hurt. That was my philosophy when ordering this subscription box for my sister’s June birthday. She’s a Christmas junkie and shared this company on social media months ago, hint taken.
The month-to-month crate is $29.95 per month, $6.95 shipping. I received a free shipping discount code, which I believe was a promotion in June.
And don’t worry, as she won’t be using these products for awhile my sis was happy to oblige my blogging whim.Apple Cider & Sage soap by Voss Skin Suds: featuring a combination of olive, coconut, castor and avocado oils. A 3-4 oz. mango butter apple cider, cinnamon and sage scented slice.Natural ingredients with a homey, rustic appeal. I imagine this hand-milled soap drying on the kitchen rack of a country farmhouse, made from the stores of a homegrown harvest. Tucked inside a velvet pouch within a linen drawstring bag was the sweetest candle tin. A 100% soy wax, small batch 4 oz. woodwick by Farmer & the Belle (that name♥).Christmas Morning: fresh greenery garlands the staircase, and mistletoe bedecks the halls as sleepyheads descend to find treasures under the sparkling spruce tree. Soft lavender calms the mood before the buzz of festivity begins. Peppermint candies glisten in a cut-crystal bowl, awaiting guests with a welcome of cool minty-tinged air. A lil’ slice of Christmas Morning heaven, in an especially lovely golden tin.
Each crate features a seasonal goodie and this month’s possessed a big box of 16 oz. cake mix from The Invisible Chef.Chocolate Peppermint Coffee Cake mix: a cup of joe and a piping mug of hot cocoa on a cold winter day. Gooey chocolate peppermint cake warms your insides as the bustle of the season slows down long enough to enjoy a decadent slice. My sister’s excited to make this cake, which looks to be a hassle-free holiday recipe.
Being an avid list maker, the Christmas planning journal speaks to my archivist heart. A soft cover booklet packed with about 20 pages of tips, to-do’s and calendars.One can even sketch out home decor placement and note where it’s stored post-season, a helpful feature for a forgetful decorator like myself. A list of seasonal tips include when to shop for holiday necessities, such as using coupons to stock up on butter in October, who knew?The craft tracker should be put to good use with our monthly crafting days. More holiday stationary can be found at New Fallen Snow’s website.My sister’s favorite item is this darling Santa watch with rose gold-tone bezel and coral strap. The jolly fellow spreads snowy cheer with some red bird friends and easy-to-read numerals. The most unexpected element in the crate, likely not a piece I would wear, but I can see that my sis, who lives on a perpetual Christmas countdown will sport it come December.
If you live for the spread of Christmas cheer all year, My Christmas Crate has several subscription plans and past boxes available for delivering sweet nostalgia to your door. Do you anticipate Christmas gifting and to-do-ing about now or find yourself scrambling during the holiday crunch? I always have good early intentions, but am more often the latter.
