This months theme for Boxcitement is ‘Midsummer Nights’, celebrating the longest day, hazy sunshine, and balmy moonlit evenings. Throw in some alfresco eating, creative essentials and lovely handcrafted goodies and you’re in for a dreamy summer…! Let’s check it out…
What is it?
Boxcitement is a monthly subscription box that brings you an exclusive collection of quality stationery items, crafting and wrapping accessories and a range of stylish gifts. All items are limited editions and are suitable for giving as gifts or keeping for yourself as a regular treat. Every box is based on a different theme and is aimed at surprising and delighting you.
Boxcitement work with UK manufacturers whenever possible, and everything in the boxes has been designed by them; so everything is a limited edition.
This months theme is ‘Midsummer Nights’ as the boxes were posted out near the longest day of the year.
How does it work?
You can subscribe monthly or save money by purchasing upfront subscriptions for 3, 6 or 12 months. You can cancel anytime with no obligation. UK postage and packing is included. You can also purchase one-off boxes if there’s something in particular that has taken your fancy.
What’s in the box?
Let’s take a look inside this months ‘Midsummer Nights’ themed box…
A gift pack of notecards for sending or framing
A stylish leather wrap bracelet for your next garden party
Three exclusive pencils created just for this months theme
A handy project notebook for catching summer daydreams
A handcrafted clay decoration – hang in the window for sunshine all day long!
Some useful metallic ribbon for crafting or gift wrapping
A mindfulness colouring print to help while away a lazy summer afternoon
A funky lunch bag for alfresco summer lunchtimes
Where do I start?? This subscription box is always lovely to get because it just seems to keep going and going. The contents are wrapped in tissue paper, and it’s lovely. Each item is packaged separately, so you can enjoy the process of opening each thing and then deciding whether to keep them, or regift to someone special.
The bag is such fun, and a perfect size for taking your lunch outside (if we get some nice weather!). For me, I think this will live on the handle of my pram for those emergency snacks for my little one!
I do love an inspirational postcard, and seeing a beaming “HELLO SUNSHINE” made my day. I’m sure it will make the day of whoever I send it onto too.
The leather bangle and the clay decoration were both handcrafted by the Boxcitement team – they all come from creative backgrounds including jewellery making, graphic design and fashion – which is a great to know. It just shows how passionate they are about creating items that people will actually love, rather than just a load of box-fillers.
I haven’t had a pencil since school, I don’t think…! So these 3 – Hot Shot, Dream Machine and Hello Sunshine – are straight into my pen pot, and the notebook has plenty of pages for my to-do lists!
How much does it cost?
One-off box (£18), 3 month subscription (£17 per box), 6 month subscription (£16 per box), 12 month subscription (£15 per box). They also create one-off boxes too; currently available is a Thank You box which was created for mums to give to teachers/childminders etc at the end of term.
And they do still have a few of the Midsummer Nights boxes available, so snap them up quick!
