Sweet Reads Box June 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received June’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Sweet Reads Box is a Canadian book box that sends you a new novel, something decadent to drink and eat and a few bookish items tied to the story or the theme of the box every month (ie. fun bookmarks, cute mugs, cozy socks, great-smelling candles and luxurious bath and body products) You can subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months or buy single boxes to try or gift. Limited edition boxes are also released throughout the year. This fall will mark the co’s fourth anniversary and I feel like they’re only getting better and better. Let’s look at June’s edition.

The Father’s Day Box from Hygge in a Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received the Father’s Day Box from Hygge in a Box in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t know if it’s the same at your house, but around here when it comes to gifts Dad always seems to get the short end of the stick. It doesn’t help that he’s not big on celebrations and insists he doesn’t want anything. In that way he kind of shoots himself in the foot ha ha but for those of us who want to treat him to something, it can be a bit of a challenge and I feel like we often fall short. But this year was an exception. Hygge Canada sent us their Father’s Day Hygge in a Box to share with le monsieur and I think they nailed it. Ergo we nailed it ha ha. (Thanks for making us look good, Hygge Canada.) Here’s more.
