All the fun of the fayre* || With Boxcitement

Hands up if you love the fayre? I'm waving both hands in the air right now, guys, because I love the fayre! So I was super excited when I opened my first ever Boxcitement* subscription box...


Because, all the fun of the fayre...in a box! Very cool, right? Of course, I was also excited by the pretty tissue paper - bursting at the seams with 'May Fayre' goodies!


Needless to say, it didn't take me long to rip open the tissue paper and dive right into this exciting box!

And what a lot of goodies there were to explore. (I'm aware I use the term 'goodies' far too often. Suggestions are being taken for alternatives! Leave yours in the comments!) 


First up, this gorgeous print. I can't wait to get it framed and hang it up on the wall. I've already picked the perfect spot!


It's like the team over at Boxcitement can see inside my brain, or something. These shrinkable plastic characters are great for making planner clips! And we all know what a planner nerd I am...


I think this was my favourite item from the box, to be honest. I mean, how cute?! This is an exclusive goldfish brooch. Just pop him out of the plastic bowl when you want to wear him. (Right now, he lives on my mantelpiece in his bowl!) Also, my cat loved him...


I mean, why wouldn't he? It is a goldfish! (Just don't tell him it's not a real one!)


I love this pink rubber purse (pink is totally my colour, too!) Perfect for holding your pennies when you visit the fayre!


Lollipop, lollipop.... I have a very sweet tooth, so I can't wait to get stuck into this!


Can you ever have enough gift tags? I don't think so. Especially as I recently depleted my supply from my last Paperhaul box! 


The same goes for notecards - perfect for sending cute little notes to friends, wishing congratulations or celebrations! 


Is it really sad that I love the paper bag this make-your-own-mini-bunting kit comes in?! It reminds me of sweets!


This is probably the only item from the box I won't use. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of it. But I don't really know what to do with it... Judging by the buttons, some sort of sewing is involved. And I don't know how to sew so... Yeah, we'll see.


So, my first Boxcitement subscription box then. What did I think? To be frank, I loved it! It was such a colourful, fun and varied box. From craft items to stationery to sweeties, this box had a lot to offer. And for £18 a month (inc. postage), what's not to love? I'll definitely be picking up another box in the future! In fact, I'm eyeing up two of their previous boxes, which are on sale on their website now for £18 (Lift Off Box) and £12 (Head in the Clouds Box)! But I am saving for a wedding...so it might have to wait a little while. (More about that in Sunday's blog post!)

  1. We're so glad you liked the box Aimee. We had a lot of fun putting it together. We haven't had direct feedback from a cat before so that was a first :) The team @Boxcitement

  3. I love the idea of creating the bunting, albeit, I'm not a sewer myself either. I generally tend to envisage the idea, have someone make it and then see the end creation. Ha!
    What a lovely subscription box, something a little bit different too.

    1. Haha yes, that is totally me. I'm like "I want this, that, and this" and then I go to my future MIL or my grandma and get them to do it. I can't sew, at all! It is something so different - there are so many subscription boxes out there at the moment. This is something refreshing - something unique! xx
