Last month I was kindly given the chance to try one of Pebblewise Sunshine Boxes, a monthly subscription that is aimed at bringing a bit of sunshine into the recipient's life. I won’t lie February is often a bad month for me and it has actually been really hard and while I've tried to take some me time, I am, at the moment still suffering quite badly, but I thought perhaps getting back and blogging would help.
So for me, this box arrived at just the right time to offer me a pick me up that I really did need.
Sunshine Box – February 2017
The first thing that greeted me about this box was how bright and colourful it was, everything inside was wrapped in yellow tissue and the bright sunshine, next to the quote on the lid, really made me smile.
The fact each item included was wrapped up meant it really felt like a gift had been sent to me.
What was included inside Sunshine Box?
This particular box contained 5 items to try and help give you a bit of a boost and life.
The first was a box of Pukka Three Tulsi, now while I drink a lot of breakfast tea I have to admit I don't really venture into herbal or fruity ones. This one, however, sounds really interesting, the tea contains three types of tulsi (or Holy Basil as India calls it) which help sweep away the clutter, uplift the spirits and inspire you onwards. Which to me makes it sound like the perfect tea for my February.
For anyone who likes chocolate this fondue set, which included chocolate, fondue, skewers and tea lights are the perfect February present. Personally, I'm stuck between marshmallows or strawberries being the “must have” to go with this.
Next up on the list was a beautiful fizzing bath bomb, now I struggle with having baths (thanks, mobility), but I've found the next best thing is to sit with my feet in a bath bomb infused water and then I at least get to enjoy them to some degree still.
To relax and unwind in the evening one my favourite things is a candle. This votive candle from Yankee is in Lovely Kiku, which is a mix of rejuvenating chrysanthemum blossom and warm vanilla.
Last but by no means least is this beautiful folded paper rose from Carmy Chameleon on Etsy. This is perhaps my favourite part of the box as it is handmade; I can definitely see this being used in future blog photos.
Overall this is such a lovely box, I think the meanings behind the candle and tea, show a lot of thought has gone into the making of this box, as do the bright happy colours used for wrapping.
If I was looking for a box to send to someone as a pick me up, this would definitely be top of my list, while I'm definitely very tempted to sign up for myself as well.
If you fancy trying Pebblewise Sunshine Box yourself or sending it to someone you know, head on over to their website now, where the box costs just £15 per month (including postage).
What do you think of the sound of Sunshine Box, is it a subscription box you would like to try yourself?
