The YXH Box


This post does not contain any affiliate links.


Recently we had local creators start up The YXH Box featuring lots of great local businesses. Me being me, I had to try it out! I was so excited to see so many businesses involved in The YXH Box. But I did have some hesitation going into it – mainly because I hate surprises but because I always get disappointed with boxes. I don’t know about you but I always feel like I get things that I don’t find useful. But I should have known that I was going to love everything in The YXH Box because I love SO MANY of our local businesses.

I am so happy with the box I received – I actually got a lot of items from business I’ve never shopped with before – which I think is fantastic. That’s the point of these boxes isn’t it? To introduce you to businesses you otherwise may not have purchased from.

I love that The YXH Box has many boxes for different budgets. Which always allows a large amount of people to take part. These boxes were released just in time for Mother’s Day and they are such a great gift giving idea. These would be great for so many occasions.

Below I will show you everything I got as well as links to the businesses websites and instagrams! I would love if you could check them out and give them a follow.

Have you ever purchased a subscription box? Did you like them? Did you feel like they were a good value? Tell me your thoughts in the comments.

The YXH Box – Unboxing

stickers from boylan imaging

I think every box received this pretty little pack of stickers and cards from Boylan Imaging. And I mean, these are the cutest stickers and I absolutely love the cards/prints. How perfect would these be to frame in your office. Thank you so much Boylan Imaging.

coffee from madhatter coffee roastery

I am not sure who was more excited – my husband or myself – about getting coffee from Madhatter Coffee Roastery. And you better believe it that we tried it out right away! We decided to try out Danish in the french press and it was perfection. This might start an all new obsession. Thanks so much Madhatter Coffee Roastery.

skincare from essential medi spa

I was so excited to see skincare in my box from Essential Medi Spa. I am currently in the market for new skincare and this was a perfect little sample pack. Because I like knowing about the products I put on my skin, I did some late night researching on the brands of both of these products. I was pleasantly surprised by both brands but mostly OM Organics. I love that they are Canadian made in small batches. This definitely introduced me to a new product I otherwise would have never known about. Thanks so much Essential Medi Spa.

gin from grit city distillery

I was so excited to see something from Grit City Distillery in my box. The bottle is so generous it will last me forever! Of coarse I had to have a nap time cocktail – I mixed it with some grapefruit Bubly and it was SOOO good! This will be a new summer staple! I just need to come up with some other recipes. Thanks so much Grit City Distillery.

tanning products from organic tan

Seriously, this was such good timing. I am currently working on a review of self-tanners and I am so glad I get to add Organic Tan products into my line up. I tried out the Hydrate Me moisturizer, it absorbs so quickly into the your skin and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy. The scent is a little stronger than I like but it mellows out really quickly, which I appreciate. Thank you Organic Tan!

cardigan from wild clover

Last but certainly not least. I received these adorable clips and cardigan from Wild Clover. I have been wanting a cheetah print cardigan for a while and I love how subtle this pattern is. I received an XL, which fit but I would have prefered a Large but thats totally fine, Id rather too big than too small. The cardigan is so soft, it will most definitely be my new go to sweater. Thanks so much Wild Clover.

BONUS

macrame from the little moonstone

If you’ve watched my IGTV you seen my husband surprised me with this beautiful Macrame wall hanging from The Little Moonstone. My wonderful husband got the idea from my Shop Local YXH – Mother’s Day post, so I am glad someone benefited from this post – LOL. Anyways make sure to check out The Little Moonstone as she was also one of the businesses that was involved in the box.
