This is my second Hazel Lane box and I love it! Why did I subscribe? I love discovering new places, learning about new companies (especially small ones!), and letting these ladies shop “for me.”
I normally get the “classic explorer” box because I like having some big (and/or more expensive) items in my box, but they also have a small box option and a “deluxe” subscription option. Looks like they also just added an “uber deluxe” box! I might upgrade in the future if the pricier box has something extra cool (kind of sad I missed the wine print in May!), but I’ll probably stick with the “classic” most months.
33 Cups of Coffee journal – Most people got some ground coffee or coffee beans, but this little booklet makes so much more sense for me. I don’t make coffee at home but visit coffee shops almost every day (because I like coffee and need to hang out at places with tables and wifi during the work day), so this is a fun little item that actually fits my life. There’s a chance this item will become a gift because I also have many friends who love coffee, but I’ll probably keep it. Thanks, Sam and Ashley of Hazel Lane!!
33 Bottles of Wine journal – I believe most or all subscribers got this one. I have a feeling this one will go to a friend who will enjoy rating wine more than I would, but I’m still happy to see it in the box. It’s cute and useful and a good little gift for one of the wine lovers in my life. I like the little flavor wheel and color meter sections of the review!
Cheetah Bottle Opener – I like that this cheetah has an eye patch and I like bottle openers, so this is a good item for me! I just have to find a good place for it… I already have a Yelp bottle opener on one keychain and a Geocaching bottle opener on another.
Tribal Neon Bag by Frankie and Coco PDX – I kind of like this bag but I don’t really “need” this bag because I have way too many Ipsy bags. Not sure what to do with it yet. The probably more important thing is that I now love this maker and just started following their shop on Etsy. So many cute things! I love most of their bag prints but am actually more interested in the scarves, sea salts, and hand painted ceramics. I don’t see any of the ceramics in the Etsy shop right now, but some mugs are featured on the website. They have birds on them. How “Portland.” ;)
Spoon Rest – Another item from Pigeon Toe!! YES!! I received a couple of their products in my last MakrBox, so I already like the company. I was extremely happy to find this spoon rest in my box because it’s nice and I’ve actually been thinking about getting a spoon rest, but couldn’t quite get myself to do it because I can just use a little plate or something. This is so much better! Thanks, ladies!
Bonus points for the card with a personalized note. I’m starting a little collection on my fridge… :)
So happy I decided to sign up for their box a couple months ago. Can’t wait to find out where we’re “going” next!
