Boxcitement Box- May 2017 Review


About the box
Boxcitement is a monthly subscription that describes itself as 'a box of fun every month'. You will receive things such as stationery, jewellery, gifts, homeware and crafty bits. It comes in a slim box that fits through your letterbox so can be ordered even if you will be out of the house.

Price
£18/month, inc. P&P

What I got
This months theme is Cutie Fruity, which I thought was very suitable considering the temperatures in the UK have just soared (relatively speaking if you're a Brit anyway) and we're all feeling the heat. I actually felt like I really wanted a juicy fruit salad as I went through the box and saw everything inside.


The first item I saw on opening the box was these lovely Fruit Cocktail Coaster Kit. They are printed on both sides, one side with pineapples and the other side it says 'Party like a pineapple'. There is a little card with some yummy thirst quenching drink recipes which I would love to try out with my family over the summer. I love the coasters and the pineapple theme.


Next we have the pack of Succulent Fruit Stickers, in assorted bright fruit shapes. I will definitely find a use for these- I am a big fan of stickers and I love fruity stationery. They're shiny/coated so they will be fairly hard wearing.


This is the Fruity Fridge Magnet- it has a sort of sunshine rays and watermelon print on it. I thought it was a little cosmetic mirror at first as it's so weighty feeling, but it's actually a big round magnet. I will stick this on my fridge to make it nice and summery.


There's some more stationery here, these are the Stylish Fruity Note Cards. There's strawberry, watermelon and apple/quote note cards, along with some little envelopes so you can send some summery missives to your friends and family. My favourite is the strawberry, I may even frame it.


Next I found this Mounted Art Print, which looks like it has a little abstract peach in there, along with some flowers and other abstract things floating about. I will probably frame this and put it in my hallway or bedroom. I love that they have actually mounted it properly, that's a lovely thought.


This is my absolute hands down favourite item from the box- the Fruit Punch Long Length Necklace. It's a wooden necklace on a cord and I think you could easily adjust the length by putting a new knot in a different part of it. The bottom bit definitely looks like a slice of kiwi and then there are two brightly coloured bits up top, which really match the Cutie Fruity theme. I will be wearing this all summer without a doubt.



Finally, there were some smaller bits and bobs floating around in the bottom of the box. There is a Bright Lime Bookmark, which will definitely be used as I'm a bookworm, as well as some custom-designed washi tape, which will go into my extensive stocks of washi tape. Finally there is a Banana Eraser which is absolutely adorable, look at his tiny face and his little fruit basket! I love him so much, I think he will have to live with the little Lollipop Clip dude which I got from this months Lollipop Box Club.

Final thoughts
Boxcitement has really succeeded with sticking with a lovely fruity theme this month. It is a really unique subscription which I think would actually be a good gift for someone as well as a subscription for yourself.
