What’s the most popular Christmas wine? “I don’t like Brussels sprouts.” 😂 Speaking of whining, was anyone else worried they might hear some complaints Christmas morning when the kids didn’t see iPhones and PlayStations and iThis, that and the other under the tree? I was. But I was excited too. Because I was pretty sure I had the best gift that wasn’t an iPhone or a PlayStation that any kid my kids’ ages (10 and 12) could want, and I couldn’t wait for them to open it! I’d ordered a Kids Christmas Box from Sweet Reads Box for them back in November and thought they’d be thrilled to unwrap a subscription box of their very own, one that promised a Christmas book, sweet treats and a few other surprises curated just for them. This was the first year Sweet Reads Box sold kids’ boxes (one for ages 8 to 12 and another for kids 4 to 7) and given how much I love my own, I thought it was brilliant. As promised, here’s a look …
I received the Sweet Reads Box Christmas Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post is also on A Year of Boxes. Happy New Year, everybody! I’m still in holiday mode until the kids go back to school next week so I’m giving myself some grace and sharing the first of a couple more December boxes today. I would have loved to have them up for you before Christmas but we were so busy getting ready for company and the big man in red that there was just no way. But good things come to those that wait. And this limited edition Christmas Box from Sweet Reads Box is very, very good. Like their monthly subscription boxes it’s “me time delivered” with a novel and something to eat and drink and a few bookish goods tied to the story, only this one has a Christmas theme.
Sweet Reads Box sent me their Book Lovers Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Well I finally got around to booking my laser eye surgery for January 1. Can’t wait to have 2020 vision. 😂 Okay I don’t need laser eye surgery but I see it’s been a minute since I promised today’s post. Sweet Reads Box issues special one-off boxes from time to time (I’ve just ordered one of their first Kids Christmas Boxes for my guys) and IMHO their second limited edition Book Lovers Box is one of their best. Like the monthly subscription box, it’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, tea or coffee, a sweet treat and some goodies tied in to the story; in this case the book is about an aspiring novelist and the goodies all celebrate books. Here’s a closer look. 📚
I received October’s OatBox in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. OatBox is a monthly breakfast subscription box from Montreal that comes with two large bags of handcrafted granolas that are 100% natural and preservative-free, plus two recipes. Gluten-free boxes are available and subscriptions can be delayed or cancelled free of charge.
I received October’s Sweet Reads Box for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I’ve been down in the dumps for a bit but I feel like I’m finally starting to shake it off, so herewith a reveal I’ve been wanting to share: the latest (and quite possibly the best yet) Sweet Reads Box. The monthly subscription box promises “me time delivered” with a new novel, a sweet treat, coffee or tea and a few other treats related to the story. October’s box marked the Canadian co’s second anniversary, so an extra surprise was included as well. They have the anniversary and we get the presents! I like where this is going.
