prior to last month, i had never heard of boxfox and now, i am here to tell you about how much i love this company. it is gift giving made easy while also having the ability to be totally unique and customizable if you so choose.
in may, i had a surprise delivery from my dear friend, nicole. she is always on top of the latest and greatest in health, beauty and yummy treats, which is not surprising with her working on the love goodly team. this is the box she gifted to me:
- a rose gold ink pen
- a floral notebook by rifle paper co.
- rose hibiscus coconut water hydrating face mist by herbivore
- cold brew gummy bears by sugarfina
- genmaicha green tea by no. six depot
with the month of may typically being a rough one and those emotions being heightened due to the pandemic, the craziness of work and the racial injustice in our nation, each of the five items have served a special purpose. i love being able to put pen to paper to jot down thoughts, ideas, feelings and all of the things i am trying to figure out how to say in person. i have been working on my skincare regimen because now that i am 30, i am ultra aware of how our skin is the largest organ on our bodies so i am treating it as such – shout out to my rose hibiscus face mist! i started drinking caffeine regularly again once we were sheltering in place and these cold brew gummy bears are the perfect midday pick me up. and who can say no to a warm cup of tea to just soothe the soul?
as if i was not already obsessed with boxfox, a second surprise one arrived courtesy of one of my favorite couples, gio and liz. liz has a super dope blog, by the way. you can catch up on that here. gio and liz regularly tune into my instagram live sessions and before even hearing my last one in full, gio told liz that i sounded sad. i am typically good at compartmentalizing so the fact that he could pick up on that was quite telling. fast forward to them surprising me with my second box in lieu of the hug we couldn’t do due to covid-19. this box was equally awesome but had totally different items:
- two face masks by lapcos
- a sparking rosé candle by voluspa
- a stainless steel champagne flute by corkcicle
- dark chocolate with smoked sea salt by compartes
- 52 lists for calm by moorea seal
first of all, i teared up when reading the message both because i was so shocked and just touched by the thoughtfulness of my friends. clearly, gio and liz picked up on the skincare obsession. i have a stainless steel wine glass but did not know how much i needed this corkcicle. while i do not eat chocolate often, when i do crave it, i like it balanced with sea salt or caramel. and a book that involves list making and calmness? that has kristin written all over it.
so i am sure you are interested in boxfox because who wouldn’t be? there are prearranged boxes to choose from or you can build a box from top to bottom based on category, budget and vibe. there are gifts for everyone on here, including dads (if you need to send a belated father’s day gift). and even amidst covid, they are shipping in three to six business days.
if you are looking for a birthday gift, bridesmaid boxes, graduation gift or something to just show someone how special they are to you, boxfox is the way to go. if you have any questions, let me know! i am working on building some boxes of my own as we speak.
