The Classic Brunette: Along Came A Box

Along Came A Box


There's nothing more exciting than opening presents, am I right? Well what if you got to open a whole day of presents? When I heard about the company Along Came A Box and owner Kristin's idea to have a bunch of presents where you open one every hour, I was immediately excited. I actually followed the instagram for Along Came A Box for a while because I always admired the bright, fun photos and the cute little gifts that came in the boxes! So when Kristin approached me to do a blog post with her I was seriously thrilled to try one of these for myself! She has a variety of boxes on her website including a birthday box, a bridesmaid box, multiple holiday and other themed boxes where you can choose to either do a half day or full day of gifts! I got the Pretty in Pink full day box, and I'm sharing all the goodies inside!




Each present is made from a small business in the U.S. and comes with a personal story card from each of the artists and business owners. I'm such a huge fan of shopping small, because they all work so hard to make their dreams come true! Plus, I like to think of myself as a small one woman business, so I like to do my part and give back to others who are hustling as well. 

So each little gift has a clock on it, indicating what time to open your present. My box (and I believe all other boxes too) started at 9am and then I got to open a present until 3pm! It was such a fun day just spent opening gifts that made me smile each time. I think this would be a great gift to give this holiday season if you're doing some last minute shopping, or if someone has a birthday coming up! It's more involved than a regular gift, and the excitement and anticipation builds with each gift throughout the day.

Here's what I got in my box!


A beautiful little ring dish in the shade coral. It's such a cute little piece, perfect for putting my rings and earrings on!


Intense Moisture Body Cream in the scent Bloom. It smells pretty flowery and pretty. I'll definitely be needing this for the winter when my skin gets dry!


Concrete hair pins in the shape of a rose. These are so cute! I don't normally wear hair pins, because my hair never likes to stay put in them, but I'll definitely be trying again with these!


This is definitely my favorite item of the box! It's a cute little champagne glass that says 'Cheers' on it in gold, and I can't wait to use it. I don't really have a purpose for it right now, but I'm sure I'll find one!!


If anyone knows me well, they know I love a good face mask! This is a detoxifying one that uses pink clay. I've heard great things about clay masks, so I'm excited to try this one out.


Okay, strange fact about me, but I love wishbones. You would absolutely never know, because I have no wishbones anywhere and I never talk about them, but I am kind of obsessed with them. I think the fact that they represent basically your hopes, wishes, and dreams is so beautiful (and totally cliche, but I'm okay with it, haha!) So I will happily be parading around in this necklace!


Another favorite present from this box is this mimosa body scrub! It smells SO GOOD! I love body scrubs, and am actually doing a whole blog post with more of Spa Thyme's items in a few weeks (such great homemade products!) 


You can never go wrong with a candle! This one is a mix of nature and cleanliness, so perfect! It's in the scent beautiful people and I think it's very representative of what it smells like, haha!

What's your favorite item from the box?
