Here’s the Box Breakdown
first look inside the handmade hive box
Our first glimpse inside the Handmade Hive Subscription Box
whats in the handmade hive box
Everything that we received in our “Down to Earth” themed Box where everything is inspired by nature. This is AWESOME. Love all of these items!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert
decker road seeds
This herb garden in a bag is a great way to start a small garden – particularly if you are a beginner. Everything you’ll need is included. If you watched the unboxing you know we have tried our luck and failed at herb gardens in the past but relish the idea of giving it another go!
We received 6 each of the pots, seed containers, labeling sticks and starter soils along with some instructions. As always check our instagram for updates!
the neighbor goods kitchen towel
This DC based design company makes hand printed and colorful items in fun designs. This flour sack (our personal favorite style) “Beet It” design is… EVERYTHING
Just look at how fun it is! Add a bit of sass to your kitchen – this is our absolute box favorite this month!
A Touch of Nature Beeswax Wrap
a touch of nature beeswax wrap
We are already sold on this product because we own some! Basically beeswax paper replaces plastic wrap. Not only is it reusable, it also comes in bright and fun designs and because it’s made with beeswax it helps bee populations
We are so tickled to add this pretty floral paper to our collection!
go carr go
This whimsical silhouette of a Robin and it’s egg are too pretty. Blank inside – you can add whatever note you’d like!
The back tells you a little more about the card and Go Carr Go. We loved checking out their online store!
skincando bug repellent
This bug repellant comes from a luxury line of skincare that has a huge arsenal of products! This spray is made with all natural ingredients and was originally used by U.S. Troops overseas to repel mosquitoes, sand fleas and biting insects! It smells like a mild Citronella and we can’t wait to use it these coming summer months

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Handmade Hive Box delivers smashing after smashing box and their commitment to local made items just makes our heart skip a beat! We really enjoy each of their boxes and this month was no exception. The presentation is great, everything is packaged well and arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing – that hand towel is so fabulous!!! And curation. Let us just say this mix was one of our favorites. Everything ties together well and it was a really wonderful mix of items that we are sure to use!
As far as box economy the Handmade Hive Box costs $44 and for that we received about $64.50 in items which is an awesome deal
