Loves It Newfoundland Subscription Box March 2016

Loves It is a box of Newfoundland sourced, hand crafted, home made items.  They are proudly sending out boxes of items they purchase from those local suppliers so that they can show off the greatness of their artists, crafters, and businesses.  They offer both a Standard or a Premium box and monthly or quarterly subscriptions.  Boxes start at $35.00 a month but do go down with longer plans.  There will be 4-7 items per box and they say they will range in value from $40-$75.  I am always on the lookout for Canadian boxes and so while I’m not from Newfoundland nor have I ever been there I was still interested in this box.

It shipped in a plain box with a sticker letting me know what it was and a note to not cut down through the tape.

Once I got it open the reason for that warning was evident.  The products were right there.  The box was well packed and padded so nothing moved around during shipping.  There is no info card included so we’ll see how well I can identify things.

Paradise Farms Bee Natural Beeswax Emergency Candle-$4.50

I love the smell of beeswax candles!  While I will more than likely just burn this like a regular candle it is actually made to be used by outdoor enthusiasts or people who are driving a bunch.  It has a six hour burning time and contains no toxins.

Purity Blueberry Jam-250mL $3.69

Okay so how awesome is it to get jam in the mail????  This looks and tastes just like my Baba used to make.  According to their website I can buy this here from the company I actually work for……wow.  I shall now be looking for it in the store because it is really tasty.  For some reason my kids do not like jam on toast so yay more for me.  This company makes a whole bunch of different things so I am kinda hoping for more from them in future boxes.

Introspective Design Photo-?

This is a little odd.  This is a photo of I’m guessing a harbour in Newfoundland somewhere.  It is not marked at all though the back is signed by that photographer.  The envelope says to like them of Facebook and there are lots of other photos and giveaways on there.

Anna Stevens Prints Rock Talk Print-$3.00

This is a cute print.  It is obviously shaped like Newfoundland and all the words that make it up are Newfie slang.  I can’t read them without hearing them in Newfie in my head.  I thing their accent is great and would happily sit and listen to them just talk if given the chance.  This print it 4×6″ and I’m going to have to find a frame for it.  It’s a nice touch.

This was my first box from Loves It so I had no idea what to expect to be in it besides it all being from Newfoundland.  I am not disappointed!  The photo is a bit odd but beyond that everything is nice.  There is a good mix of products and it was all full sized so can’t complain about that.  The value this month is $19.19 plus the photo.  That is way short of what they say you should receive because I just can’t see that picture being worth $20.00.  It’s also less than I paid for the box, which is unfortunate.  Hopefully next month will redeem it.  The pictures I’ve seen of their past boxes did look like they had more items so maybe this as just an off month.  If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
