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.
Always a warning with this box. I’m not sure why they just don’t put the cutable items on the bottom and save everyone the chance of ruining things.
As you can see I had a helper for this unboxing. The reason for not cutting down is very obvious once it’s open. As I mention every time I really wish they included a card or something to tell me about the items in here.
This appears to be handmade. Beyond that I can tell you very little. I have no idea how this relates to Newfoundland or what business makes it.
Port aux Choix Lighthouse Print by Angela Foss
This numbered print is very lovely. The artist seems to do a variety of styles and while I can’t find this one or this size on her site I do like it. It is a bit of a collage style, with the lighthouse part laid of the main print.
Newfoundland An Island Apart-$18.95
This is a book filled with beautiful pictures taken by Dennis Minty. It seems to cover all areas of life in Newfoundland and shows the absolute glory that is that province. I can’t wait to dive in and imagine myself there.
The Crystal Ball Newfoundland Crocheted Soap in Maleficent-$5.00
This is so freakin cute!!! It’s a bar of soap inside a crocheted cozy. It makes your soap last longer and exfoliates as you use it. Once all the soap is gone you can just use it as a scrubby. The soap inside is lemongrass so it smells great.
Paradise Farms Beeswax Hand Cream-$5.99
If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit you know I love the scent of beeswax. I thought for a minute that this was unscented but once I put it on and rubbed it in the smell came out and I am in love. I can totally see myself ordering from this company. They have a large choice of items available on their website and while this does leave my hands slightly greasy I can overlook that because of the other benefits. My hands feel great with this on.
This was my fourth box from Loves It and I still never have any clue what to expect to be in it besides it all being from Newfoundland. There is a good mix of products and it was all full sized so can’t complain about that. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. The value this month is around $30.00, back down below the promised value unless that print is expensive. If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
