Birchbox Home : from the garden

I have to admit, I was fairly skeptical when I saw the name of this limited edition Birchbox Home box. I loved the last one so much, but the "from the garden" aspect of this new box made me think it was going to be potting soil and shovels.

I don't garden, so my fear was I wouldn't appreciate anything that was inside. But man was I wrong. It's garden/nature inspired for sure, but I loved it. And it's really a fantastic gift for Mother's Day--so keep that in mind. Flowers die, but the products in this box will be enjoyed by your mom/whomever you give the box to, for much longer. 




* that Tocca hand cream smells divine. You can also find it at Anthropolgie for about $20, but if you consider that this box is only $32 and you get so much more? I'd buy it just for the hand cream. 

The mint candle is fresh, summery and light. Plus, it comes with matches.

As with the other Birchbox Home box, it's beautifully packaged, and truly a nice gift to receive. I'm throwing that Baggu bag in my car, perfect for groceries or the thousands of other items that collect over time.



(I was not compensated for this post. I did recieve the box as a gift. All opinions are honest and my own.)

  4. I have a Baggu that I keep in my purse. They fold up and fit back in their pouch surprisingly well.

  5. Thanks for the suggestion. I just ordered two. I'm going to use the products, along with a few other things that I pick up, to put together mother's day gifts.

  6. Thank you, thank you! I just picked up 2 boxes and now Mother's day is taken care of. Your last post on the specialty boxes helped helped me out at Christmas. The make-up and body care subcriptions aren't really my thing so I am grateful when you point out the non-make-up boxes. -Alexis

  12. That is a really nice idea to give this box as a Mother's Day present. I usually just give my mom a card, but for all of things she has helped me with recently, I think this would be a great addition. Plus, I have $10 in Birchbox credits I can use!

  13. Kate you are awesome! I love baggu. I have a few of them that I keep in the car for groceries. I wanted to get some for gifts, but this is a WAY better idea. Now I don't have to worry about Mother's Day. Mom and my mother-in-law will be very pleased with this. Thanks for the idea!

  15. I really wanted to order that box when I got the email about it yesterday, but my hubby would kill me for buying a $32 box of stuff men don't understand lol.

  16. I got the email for it and it was $58 so I passed. You got a great deal! I would have done it for $32 for sure but not $58.

  20. You maybe interested in my blog. Want a Greenhouse? Build or buy an afordable, sturdy greenhouse. That works. You want a greenhouse that absorbs as much solar energy (sunlight) as posible. In the greenhouse the solar energy is converted into thermal energy or heat. So you want a greenhouse that will hold that heat longer. http://www.freewcn.com/ kanosh@kanosh.org
