Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside The Bee Box.
We received the Honey Bee Box and are excited because this wrapping looks precious!
Everything that we received in our The Bee Box Debut Subscription Box.
This is colorful and fun and has so much whimsey!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert. Explaining how this box is curated and created entirely by Kirsten Winkelbauer.
The point of this subscription is quite simple as well… to help add something fun and cute to your life, just because!
We are in love with the little packages! Super cute and fun.
We received six stickers in this set that has an almost Japanese art style feeling
They’re called “Flower Crown” because they’re all wearing them! How much fun are these? We love the kitty!
This art print reminds us of a mermaid or a siren. We love the light colors and think this makes a great addition to any airy room in your home. And we love the cute little koi (we think) that are poking out of her lavender hair!
Our second art print in The Bee Box. This is of a girl alone in the desert. We kind of get the feeling she’s looking for some UFO’s … maybe even on her way to Area 51!
We love gift tags. We think they are a fun way to “accessorize” your gift and if you are really clever – even your card!
There were 4 bee themed gift tags included! We are quite fond of the little chubby bee illustrations!
Our favorite! These are the most adorable buttons we’ve ever seen! We received three of these fun and whimsical sea themed buttons in an equally adorable package
We can’t even decide which one we like best… we love whales but that narwhal is kind of boss too! We kind of want to pass these on to the kids but also not really… the kid in us wants to keep them all to ourselves!
So in summary
We can’t do our typical breakdown because the curation of this subscription box is so specific. However we feel this is an excellent way to fill your day with some bright and cheery items. We love that the items are always rotating. The possibilities with the variations seem like lots of fun. We also love the quality of the packaging and the details on each, it made The Bee Box that much more fun to receive! We think this makes a great gift to yourself or a friend who needs a bit of inspiration in their life!
