Put a Bow On it Premium Canadian Subscription Box October 2016 Review and Coupon

While the US seems to be overflowing with subscription boxes, Canadians either get to pay outrageous shipping prices to receive one from the US or desperately hope there's one that suits already shipping in Canada. Put A Bow On It is a Canadian lifestyle subscription that mirrors as a phenomenal girl-gift. Not only is it packed with fun, useful goodies but it even arrives beautifully wrapped with pretty paper and ribbon.
I really did smile while opening this. It's not every day I get a gift wrapped package! While this is the Premium box, there are actually two choices you can make. The Deluxe box is $39.99 CAD and will arrive with up to a $100 value. The Premium Box is $59.99 CAD and has a value of up to a $150.

Both boxes are charged shipping. That's $10CAD for Canadians and $22.50CAD to the US ($17.50USD). Don't let that get you down. If there's one thing I've learned about Canada, it's that their shipping prices are absolutely unreal. I know a couple subscriptions (OwlCrate being one) actually drive their boxes over the border to ship them to their US subscribers. Now that's dedication.

Indigo Fashion Wallet- Black and white with both polka dots and stripes, this is a super cute wallet that will fit any combinations of cards and cash you can throw at it.
It's adorable and I love the tassle on the zipper pull.
Value: $45

Create Hard Cover Notebook- This is a hardbound notebook with 80 lined pages. I like how it opens up flat even though it's not spiral. I always hate it when the book tries to close on you while writing.
Value: $13
Designer Gallery Prints- I freely admit that I love these! I framed one already and now I need to head out and buy a couple more. When I first took them out I thought there was only one but nope. There's three with three different inspirational sayings.
Value: $10
File Folders- Three pretty, glimmery folders for whatever I want to use them for. It's a shame to put something so fun in a file drawer though. They all have uplifting quotes on them, too. To help you get your work done, I suppose. I need to find a way to show them off while still getting good use of them.
Value: $10
Faux Fur Pom Keychain- This is very similar to the one I received in the Popsugar LE box. Almost identical. It's super cute and I love it! Especially since my PSLE one broke already. I think the only difference is that there is elastic connecting the chain to the puff whereas the PSLE one just had regular twine.
Value: $15
Indigo Pen with Charm- This box is so full of cute, I can hardly stand it. A retractable pen to use with your notebook.
Value: $10

Bow Push Pins- Super cute gold pins for your corkboard! I have one that I use so these are perfect.
Value: $6

VERDICT: I love the practicality and usefulness combined with fun and adorable. It's the perfect mix. While there may not be name brands, this is a great collection of items that are easy to incorporate into your everyday life. And add a bit of pizzazz to your office area. Love it! I can't wait to get my office set up to incorporate all these goodies. The keychain is already in use. I hope it lasts longer than the PS one. :D
