Creating your own Bestie Box

Thursday, February 12, 2015

I really love subscription boxes. I love getting little packages every month in the mail full of exciting new goodies that I get to try out. However, I'm not a huge fan of the price tag that comes with my monthly box and I do find more often than not that I don't like a lot of the products that are in my box. It's hard for a company to always tailor every box to fit each individual's specific tastes and preferences. Recently, both my sister and I cancelled a favorite subscription box of ours for that exact reason. Too expensive and not enough of the things we like! Then, I had an idea. Why don't we create a subscription box for each other?! We know each other so well that the products would always be to the other's tastes and creating one box for the other person every other month would bring down the hefty subscription box price tag. I put together the first box under the theme Romance & Relaxation for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday! I had so much fun shopping around for little products and knick knacks that I knew my sister would absolutely adore and I was totally right. She already has that little red Valentine's mailbox sitting on her desk at work. I really can't wait to see what she comes up with for the month of April!

  4. Omg my bestie is coming to visit me in May and I should totally make something like this for her! Usually for our house guests I put together a nice bathroom basket with razors, new soaps (omg duh lol) and some chocolate but I think I should add to that!
