A while back I saw something called a bandwagon box – it works a lot like the secret santa concept, you get paired up with someone and you put a gift box together and send it off to them cept that it happens monthly (or bi-monthly) instead of only at Christmas – but when I asked about taking part in it it seems that only the “elite” are allowed to join.
And this is where the #DelishBox comes in! Lipglossed Ninja apparently also wasn’t “elite” enough for the bandwagon box and so the Delish box was born – where ANYONE can join.
Last month (so this month) was my first time joining in and I’m so glad I did!
I got to buy for Ada and tried getting her things that she wanted and I hope she likes it but after receiving my box from Jane I feel like I want to hunt down the postman so I can get my box back and re-do it, but then again I got the vibe that the box I made up suited my person just like this box suits me (hope you like your “box” Ada!)
Jane went all out crafty on my box but what got me the most was the letter that was right on top of all my goodies but I’m not going to share it with you, just know that it was something I needed to hear right now x
Everything in the box came with little notes describing why she added it to the box.
From cream thats smell makes her think of cupcakes, new mascara (which I was thinking just yesterday I need to go and get), the most delish colour of dirty candyfloss pink polish (guess I’ll be doing my nails tonight!), cupcake hairclips and pencils, a headband for when I work on the engines, smarties cause Fysh and I seem to feature them in photos often, cupcake goodies (we’re baking as soon as we get back from camping this weekend), earrings, ticktac’s, a handmade necklace, chocolate… let’s just say I was SPOILED!
I love how she opted for the option of filling up the box with lots of little things instead of just a few bigger things (like I did). And this box has totally inspired me for my next box as well as given me a brilliant idea for family/friend xmas gifts. I adore it.
