I’m such a sucker for a thoughtful gift. I’m a very sentimental person, and so an intentional gift just gives me all the feels. This past year, my coworkers absolutely knocked it out of the park with my birthday gift and got me the gift that keeps on giving, and y’all, I’m seriously obsessed! (Like, my birthday was in October and this gift is still hanging around and making me happy!)
They signed me up for Vellabox, a monthly artisan candle subscription that features a themed box each month with a new artisan candle and a surprise gift that matches the theme! The surprise gift could be anything from snacks (artisan toffee, YES please!) to a packet of wildflower seeds or a bag of specialty tea! I’ve loved the anticipation of opening my box to see what’s inside, and I’ve yet to be disappointed! My favorite month so far was March, which featured candles from Atticus and Finn and wildflower seeds from American Meadows!
Obviously I love candles, and so that part of the gift was great on its own, but pair it with the candle AND the special gift AND the surprise factor of getting some random monthly happy mail at work, and you’ve got one seriously happy birthday girl.
Have you tried Vellabox before, or do you have another subscription box that you swear by? I want to know!
