Uniquely You March 2016

Uniquely You is a subscription box with a difference from the normal ones.  They tailor each box to you personally so each one is different from the next.  When you sign up they have 20 categories you can choose from to base your box on.  They also send you a little quiz after to get to know you better filled with some serious and some frivolous questions.  I chose the Mystery Box category and after filling in my quiz they responded and asked if there were any of the categories I did not have any interest in. I told them that Festivals & Party Supplies, Men’s Fashion Accessories, Cats, and Smoking Accessories were not to my interest and they said nothing from those would be sent.  Boxes are $29.99 a month but go down a lot if you choose a longer term.  All pricing is in Canadian dollars and the box is based out of British Columbia.

Opening the box showed that it was packed with care.  There is also a sticker on top the shows it’s mine.

There was a personalized letter that said thank you and gave details of what I would find in the box.  It also had instructions and usage hints for a few of the items.

Inside all that paper was my treasures.  I couldn’t see anything specifically from this look but it was exciting!

DMC Magnetic Needle Case-$7.25

I’m thinking this would fall into the Arts & Crafts theme.  This is so cool actually.  I just have my needles in a pin cushion and the girls occasionally get hold of it and give me seven heart attacks as I rush to save them from playing with sharp pointy objects.  It has a magnet inside so all your pins stay safe and don’t go flying through the air when you open it.

Hand Painted Mason Jar-???

This must go in Home Accents.  I don’t know how to value this one.  The jar is worth $2.12 but someone took the time to paint the inside and that adds to it.  They suggest filling this with flower or makeup brushes but it could hold anything you want.  They do mention not to place water directly in it.I would never pick this up myself, even though oddly it’s not the first one of these I own.  It’s cute in that rustic way and I will find something to fill it with.

Pure Dead Sea Body Butter in Pomegranate-$25.90

This one must fit the Spa theme.  This is a very heavy jar of lotion and I was really surprised at how light this lotion was.  It smells great and it’s not overpowering.  It soaked in well and while it did leave a slightly greasy feeling, that is pretty normal for a body butter.  It says it’s full of antioxidants and will help protect and moisturise your skin.  This will last a long time but will be so nice to use after a bath.

Handmade Mini Vase, Soil, Glass Stones, and GMO Free Radish Seeds-???

This one has an obvious theme home, GMO Free Gardening.  This is another one that can’t be valued but I love it.  You place the stones in the base of the vase, add the soil and seeds and sprout your radishes!  There is no way I’d ever have expected to get something to grow in a box.  So cool.

I am so happy I found this box.  My first one is like nothing else I’ve ever received and while nothing in it is specific to answers I gave it is still a mix of things that I will enjoy.  For the stuff I can value, this box is worth $35.27, which is higher than what I paid and does not include the intrinsic value of the objects.  I can’t wait to see what other boxes will bring because I know literally have zero idea of what to expect.
