Loves It Newfoundland Box January 2017

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.

My box was missing the warning about not cutting down this month so I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a print or not.  Tucked just under the top flaps was a business card and on the back, it had a handwritten note to let them know if I’ve received doubles.  After the last few months of a lot of doubles, I was extra wary of seeing that now.

I guess I was wrong about the print!  This is a print of original artwork by Mr.Grips.  His website shows a few different collections, all in this style and I think it’s great.  This is another one I’ll have to get a frame for but I like the flag background and I think puffins are awesome!

Newfoundland Seasonings Atlantic Sea Salt Coarse-$6.99

This one is a duplicate for me but at least it’s been since August since I got it.  This is a hard one to complain about though since salt will always be used and it won’t go bad. I still don’t have a salt grinder to put this in but now I really have no excuse not to get one.

20170124_193044Random Island Soapery Whipped Peppermint Body Butter-$10.00

This is soooooooooo light and fluffy!!!!!It does leave my hands feeling very greasy and is now all over my keyboard but it smells nice and I can’t get over how light the whip is.  This company doesn’t have a website yet but they are on Facebook and seem to be available in local stores and craft sales.

These have no markings or tags at all so I can tell you nothing but that they have the saying embroidered on the cuff.  They are not crazy thick like some work socks are but they are still going to be warm and they feel soft.

20170124_193135Blueberry Da Bombz Bath Bombs-$?

Once again there are no markings to identify these but who doesn’t love a bath bomb?  They smell fantastic even through the packaging.  I think the butterfly tags are nice too.

This was my eleventh box from Loves It and as normal, 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. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. Value is always hard for this box as I don’t always know where things are from. Only one of the items this month is a duplicate so that is way better than last time.  I will still let them know since they have specifically asked about it.  If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
