Admission of guilt: I am a sucker for subscription boxes. Mainly if those boxes are full of indie shop / handmade goods. I’ve been excitedly waiting for my Pen Pals box to arrive from Nicole (Designs by Nicolina) since the day I first signed up. I love knowing you have something coming without knowing what’s going to be in the box.
I nerded out the second I saw the box everything came in. Her stamp was too cute. Maybe not everyone will be excited about this detail quite like I was…such is the life of a craft dork.
I love that you are greeted with a list of your goodies the second you open the package. Plus she has everything so nicely packaged that if there was a piece in here that wasn’t your style, you could easily regift it (yes, I am a re-gifter!) to someone and it’d be legit and in perfect condition still. Just saying.
— adorable recipe cards. (I gifted similar ones from DBN to my co-workers this Christmas)
— ‘Happy Everything’ greeting card.
— ‘Thanks a Latte’ greeting card.
— ‘Merci Beaucoup’ thank you cards.
— ‘Amazing Things’ art print.
— sweet little to/from gift tags.
— polka dot Kraft gift bags.
Yes. You can go ahead and be jealous.
Basically, I’m super stoked to use everything that arrived at my doorstep a couple of days ago. I’m actually irritated with myself for taking so long to photograph them – because I had to keep them pristine before writing all over everything and sending the cards out to people. I’m thinking I need to come up with a reason to thank myself so I can send the latte card straight back to me. Because I love it that much.
Anywho. I loved this and felt that I totally got my money’s worth of goodies. Nicole rocks, like always and I’d highly recommend getting on board with this sub. box as well. You can sign up for a box of your very own (or it’d be a really awesome gift to a paper loving friend!!) for one, three, six or twelve months. Happy mail is the best kind of mail, yes?
