I like buying gifts for myself, I think I definitely deserve nice things! I’ve mentioned a few times before how much I love subscription boxes. It’s so nice getting a little delivery every month and I love the surprise of discovering whats inside. As a busy mum, its not always easy to put myself first and I’ll always treat the kids before myself. The Lifestyle Box was also started by two mums, with a fab idea. I think this might be the perfect subscription box for me!
Each box comes beautifully packaged and contains a selection of 4 beautiful lifestyle items. The gifts in each box are sourced from a selection of small and independent businesses and makers. This is something I can really get behind and one of the things I was most impressed with when I heard about The Lifestyle Box. I was sent the May box to try, so here are my first impressions.
One of the little things I always appreciate in a subscription box, is the box itself. I love a nice sized sturdy box that I can re-use. This one is large, robust and glossy and it was an absolutely lovely way to start the experience. I liked the little note inside, which made it feel more personal.
Inside, the packaging is just as good and I liked that the inner packaging matched the theme of the May box, which was Blooming Gorgeous and with a purple colour scheme.
So what was inside the box? A lovely scarf, a cute coin purse, a stunning Amethyst necklace and an adorable Prosecco lip balm. Such a nice gift and definitely all stuff that I will use and enjoy.
My favourite piece in the box was the gorgeous Amethyst Druzy Necklace. I love anything with with crystals and the colour of this one is just stunning. This is definitely something I will wear and use a lot. I also like that it’s not something I would have sought out and bought, so getting it as surprise and loving it makes it even better for me.
I always carry a lip balm or two around in my handbag, I love to try new brands and different flavours. This comes from lovely small business Heart and Heritage. I loved the smooth texture of this lovely lip balm. It’s perfect for giving my lips a little love and it smells gorgeous.
The cute leather coin purse is also going to get a lot of use. It’s currently in my bag with some spare hair elastics and hair grips in it, so I always have them on the go if I need one. This would also be great for keeping money in when I’m carrying a small handbag or clutch bag and I can’t use my big purse. I love the rose gold colour and that it was handmade by an independent maker called Dasprez.
Lastly the gorgeous scarf, which is just one of those lovely useful things to throw on before you leave the house. Right now it’s a little hot for a scarf, but I’ll be keeping this safe for Autumn, Winter and Spring. It’s a lovely light scarf, which is a really good size and agin absolutely gorgeous quality.
I received the May subscription box. Each month The Lifestyle Box co launch a new theme supported with colours and product that are completely different. There 4 surprise items presented beautifully in a box every month. The items very but include candles, stationery, beauty products, fashion accessories, confectionery and home trinkets. Basically all the lovely little things that I can’t resist treating myself too! Also perfect for bloggers like me who like nice things for flat lays (just saying!)
There are different lengths of subscription. 1 months costs £20 plus P&P, a three month subscription costs £54 and 6 months costs £105. I think this would make an absolutely lovely gift for somebody special, be it a friend relative or just lovely you!
