Put a Bow On It Canadian Women's Lifestyle Subscription Box Review December 2016 plus 10% Off Coupon

Put a Bow On It is a newer Canadian subscription box that sends a range of items from beauty and accessories to home goods and books. It fills a much needed gap in Canadian subscriptions and makes an especially good gift since the presentation is marvelous.
Every box is beautifully wrapped with, of course, a bow on it! The wrapping paper has been of excellent quality and every box has looked almost too good to open. This one especially! I'm terrible at wrapping presents so I'm a little jealous of the talent whoever wrapped this box has.
The December theme for this Premium box is "Christmas Wish" and it has one of my new favorite things in it! This turned out to be an excellent box for me.

The Cost: The Premium Box is $59.99 CAD and the Deluxe box is $39.99 CAD plus shipping

What You Get: You'll find goodies ranging from jewelry and makeup to home decor, technology and baking. The Premium box has a value up to $150 CAD and the Deluxe up to $100 CAD.

Indigo Reading Socks- I didn't even know there was such a thing as reading socks!  Cozy Reader Club needs to put these in one of their boxes! These are soft, fluffy oversized knit socks and I absolutely LOVE them! As in the second I took this picture I put them on and wore them all day. Even while I was reading. :)
Value: $25
Graphique Note Card Set- This is a set of 20 notecards with different sayings.  They're nice, heavy cardstock with envelopes. I don't have a whole lot of cards like this so I'm happy to have them. Now... what to use them for...
Value: $15
Bath and Body Works Be Joyful Lotion- This is billed as "A joyful blend of fizzy clementine, frosted jasmine & shimmering sugar." It's infused with luxuriously rich Shea Butter, soothing Aloe Butter and pampering Cocoa Butter. I can't find this anywhere on the site so I think the scent is from last Christmas' collection. It smells wonderful.
Value: $5

Glow for a Cause Perfume in Wish- I love Glow for a Cause. I was first introduced to the brand with a solid perfume which I adore. This perfume is also gorgeously scented. It says "A magical blend of sparkling light florals, white tea, and bergamot grounded by light musks." They might as well call it "Heaven" because it smells that good. Mmm!
Value: $18

VERDICT: The reading socks and the Glow for a Cause perfume in this box made me so happy! However, I've noticed that there is a very limited amount of brands appearing in these boxes. Indigo features heavily and while I love Glow for a Cause, I'd love to see a much better variety in branding. Certain items appear to be from last season or no longer available but they are still be fun and useful. Everything in this box will be put to good use. Do keep in mind that this is a young subscription and hopefully as subscribership grows, they will be able to start working directly with larger vendors for a more varied experience.

If you would like to sign up for Put a Bow On It, you can do that here. Use coupon code BITSANDBOXES10 for 10% off your first box. Oh, you can order both the Deluxe and Premium boxes without receiving any overlap! That's awesome!
