My Christmas Crate October 2016

My Christmas Crate is a monthly box of items to celebrate the festive time of the year, all year long.  Boxes can include anything that might help bring back memories or feelings, such as home decor, culinary items, accessories, candles, kitchen items, and more.  Boxes are $29.95 a month and you will get 3-5 items.  I love Christmas and as soon as December starts I’m wearing Xmas gear and singing carols so this box is right up my alley.  I missed out on their first box that had an awesome mug in it but I’m hoping that there is equally great things in the boxes I do get.

This is the back of the info card you can see in the picture above.  It is very basic, just what you are getting and the website you can find them on.

Snowmint Salt Water Taffy by The Salty Road-$7.00

This is taffy with a twist…it has actual sea salt bits in it to give it crunch.  It has a great mint taste and is wonderfully chewy.  I like salt water taffy but I don’t know if I’ve had mint before.  I like the added crunch.

Ultra Cozy Knit Plaid Fringe Scarf y Umo Lorenzo-$14.95

This is available on their website to buy and it is so soft, I can’t believe it.  My Hubby has already tried to steal it on the basis that it must be a men’s scarf.  I am getting a great assortment of winter scarves to use this year and they are all going to be great.

Christmas Caramel Apple Soy Candle by Ash & Ember Studios-$5.11

This candle smells nice.  It seems really sweet in the jar but I think it’ll be fine once it’s lit.  These are hand poured in small batches and I’ll burn it once it gets closer to Christmas.

Christmas Cheer Bath Bomb by Sweet Intensions-$7.00

I love bath products second only to stationery so this is a nice find in here.  I cannot smell this through the package at all but it has red and green sparkles on it and that alone makes it awesome.

Holiday Hair Tie Pack in Festive Blend-?

The shop for these is down for maintenance so I can’t get a price.  I use these types of ties all the time and lose them with amazing frequency so three more come in handy.

Christmas Tree Pasta by The Pasta Shoppe-$5.50

How cute are these little tree pastas???  These are perfect for the kids because they focus on the shape instead of the fact that they are coloured with vegetables.  We’ll be eating these a few times because there is plenty.

I am very happy with My Christmas Crate.  There was a good mix of items from all categories.  My favourite item this month is the scarf and now I’m waiting for it to be December so I can use the rest of the items without being judged.  If you sign up for their newsletter you can get 10% off your purchases.  I only got this one for a few months but I think it might become one of my favorite boxes yet.
