My Little Box: December 2016
My Little Box has been one of my favourite subscription boxes this year and last year; I cancelled my subscription earlier this year as I needed to save up for driving lessons, insurance and the tests (I passed my practical driving test on the 9th December, yay!). I was very kindly sent the November and December boxes from the super lovely people at Yves Rocher as a Christmas treat *merci!* and the December box arrived just before I left for my driving test so it was a nice surprise that distracted me from feeling really nervous!

The November box was the 'Goodnight' box which was incredible with a gorgeously designed box, a cute moon shaped dish, skincare, an eye mask and a large sample size of the beautiful Yves Rocher Accord Chic EDP. The December Christmas box is equally divine and perfectly festive so it would make an amazing gift. The box contains jewellery, makeup, skincare, perfume, tea, food and a heavenly candle. As always everything in each box is perfectly selected, unique and gorgeous.

Lou Yetu X My Little Box Bracelet 
I'm not a massive fan of bracelets and bangles so I won't be wearing this as it's just not something I ever wear but I adore the hessian bag it came in and the design which is subtly festive and minimal but also luxe. It is gold with a forest green line around the middle of the bracelet. It will be great for a formal or casual christmassy outfit this season.

Kusmi Tea 
I adore tea, especially green, herbal and mint tea so I'm always happy to receive tea or coffee in subscription boxes. This one is a christmassy blend composed of black tea, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, liquorice root, orange peel and aniseed so it smells like the essence of the festive season. It's a loose tea so you need an infuser, it's the 150th anniversary packaging and I can't wait to try it.

My Little Beauty Christmas Melody Smoky Eyes Duo 
There are always a mixture of lifestyle and beauty products in the boxes which is fantastic and this month there is a makeup item from the My Little Box's own makeup brand. The eyeshadow duo comes in a really cutely designed package with a magnetic closure so it would be great to keep in your makeup bag or for travelling. There's a metallic, glittery pink shade and a matte taupe, both of which are great for everyday, smooth and easy to blend.

Wilkin & Sons Ltd Salted Caramel Spread 
I adore anything that contains salted caramel, I've recently bought the Alpro Salted Caramel Ice Cream and it's heavenly (it's also vegan). The spread tastes amazing, it has a toffee/butterscotch flavour that would be great on Belgian waffles or on warm chocolate cake, sticky toffee pudding or warmed on vanilla ice cream.

Delices De Noel Gingerbread Candle 
I adore candles, especially at this time of the year when I'm burning one pretty much everyday. I have tried a few cinnamon and gingerbread scented candles and none of them actually smell like gingerbread but this one does. To me it smells like vanilla, buttery cookies and gingerbread men - it's divine. I love the packaging, everything in the box (and the November box) is very pinterest worthy which is one of the reasons I love these boxes.

You also receive a cute, unique print with each box and the ones for the November and December boxes are lovely. Additionally, there's also a short magazine in the boxes and canvas bags that have a different illustrated design on each monthly box - I use them for emergency items in my bag and for camera accessories. I definitely want to start my subscription again...but I need to pay for car insurance first *being an adult is so fun!*. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

What do you think of the gorgeous December box? Are you subscribed to any boxes?

  8. Such an adorable little box. I would love to subscribe to it. But the salted caramel spread would ache my teeth from sensitivity. However I know my hubby would have loved that!
