The Gift Refinery Spring 2022 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Hello hello! I have a few really wonderful boxes to share with you this week, all of them Canadian πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ which is interesting because I feel like it wasn’t so long ago that pickings were slim. Three or four years later it’s a whole different story, with several exceptional made-in-Canada boxes to choose from in virtually every category. Today’s box is one of the more luxurious offerings and a great value for the price, IMHO. It’s the Spring delivery from The Gift Refinery, a quarterly lifestyle subscription box that sends you a 7 to 10 luxe Canadian-made products from beauty to housewares and everything in between.

Hi everybody! πŸ‘‹ I hope you had a nice weekend. My to-do list didn’t get much shorter but I did have lunch with some friends and visit one of my favourite bookstores so that’s two checkmarks in the win column. And I ordered some Christmas cards! I know Christmas is still two months away (or do you say only two months away?) but they were so cute I couldn’t resist. Speaking of Christmas, if you need some help with your shopping this year I might have a few ideas. πŸ˜‰ LikeΒ White Willow Box!
