I know Christmas has come and gone, but I have one little thing left of the holiday: I’ve received another Spooky Box! It actually came the day before Christmas, but I haven’t gotten ’round to photograph the items until now.
Sidenote: do you know how irritating it is to try taking decent photos when there’s NO natural light at all and all you got is regular ceiling lamps? Where I live it’s pitch black pretty much 24/7 right now… *grumble*
The Hexmas Box
This time the box was stuffed with purple paper strips and snowflake sequins! I love that even the packaging is part of the current theme. Makes the whole experience feel like someone put in a little extra effort, and I appreciate that. :)
And the money for this box goes to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Quite the mouthful, but a worthy and appropriate cause.
Now, the items:
Curly evil elf Christmas stocking
Hanging up stockings isn’t traditionally a part of Swedish Christmas customs (we have goats, remember?) but this particular stocking is covered in skulls so I’m willing to incorporate it in my future holiday decorations.
Glittery spooky tree ornaments
Ghosts! AND BATS!! :heart: These are so perfect you have no idea! So cute!
Minor issue is that they are pink, and so is my tree, so I’m afraid they won’t be very noticeable… But I’ll figure something out.
Dainty sterling silver snowflake charm
Aww, isn’t that pretty? I love snowflakes and already own a pair of earrings in a similar design. I’ve actually already worn this a couple of times. :)
Handmade frosted cranberry soap bar
Smells nice, but I hope it’s not of the same quality as the soap I got in the Saltwater Siren box. It was really dry and the skin felt like plastic afterwards, so I doubt I’ll enjoy this.
Might put it in a dresser drawer. My mum always put soaps in drawers and closets to make it smell nice, maybe I should do that too?
3D standing tree memo pad
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with this. It’s too small and frilly to be used as a memo pad, and as a tree it looks kinda meh. Not a good item imo.
Creepy Christmas cards
Love these! I don’t really do cards these days, but at least 3 people will get one next year! Just have to be a bit selective who I send them to, I doubt my parents would enjoy getting a Christmas card with skulls on it. ;)
Papertape decorating set in a mini stocking
I’m not a very crafty person so I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do with papertape?
But the little stocking is adorable! Guess I’ll hang it with the other one :)
Handcrafted gourmet mint candy cane
Can’t go wrong with candy, so obviously this is a good item :)
Tassle snowflake bookmark
This is really quite beautiful, I love the design! I usually use old business cards or just random strips of paper for bookmarks, so this will definitely be a step up.
As a massive fan of winter and snow I was looking forward to this box, and I think it delivered.
As per usual some items were kind of meh, like the papertape and memo pad thing, but the items that were good were really good. The snowflake charm and spooky tree ornaments were my favourites, and the bookmark.
I’m continuing my subscription. :)
