Rustics UK June Love-It-Box Review

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're all having a nice and relaxing Sunday, aside from a bit of bootsaling I plan to get through my Netflix list which may or may not be possible due to the sheer size! 

You are probably familiar with monthly box subscriptions like Glossybox or Birchbox etc and how they work but today I am going to be talking about something quite different, the Rustics box.

Rustics is a small independent business based in Somerset and they pride themselves on hand making each item that goes into the box, using eco friendly materials where possible and sourcing products locally. 

They have recently launched the Love It Box* which is a fab way to sample their products at a fraction of the usual price, you get 5-7 products for £15 including postage and the worth of each box is estimated at around £30 and I was kindly sent one to try out.

Here is what I got in mine!

2x Handmade Eco Friendly Heart Greeting Cards
1x Hand Printed Heart Eco Friendly Cotton Tote Bag
1x Decopatch Wooden Heart Kit
3x Mini Wooden Heart Tags
1x Heart Pencil
1x Handmade Jasmine Tea Bag
1x 'You are Something Special' Heart Print

What I like about this box is the handmade element, I feel like each piece has been made with a huge amount of care and I love that. I think that's what makes this box so unique and special. I like the idea of supporting a small business here in the UK and the box is fab value for money as you are essentially paying half of what the box is worth. 

This isn't an automatic subscription service either, each box is a single payment so you have complete control over which boxes you would like to get without being tied in to a lengthy contract. 

A new box is released on the first of each month at 8pm and there are a limited number of each box so make sure you put in your order as soon as possible, all of the boxes will then be shipped out and reach you by the 16th of the month. I believe the July one is a "pink party" box which sounds fabulously girly! 

If you get a box, make sure you take a photo and post to social media #loveitbox as Rustics do giveaways each month to the best photo/comments/most liked post.

I hope you enjoyed this post and review, if you would like me to review the next box let me know in the comments below and I will see what I can do! If you would like to read more about Rustics you can do so on their website and I like their Twitter page for cute photos and sneak peeks, so definitely worth a follow.

Thanks for reading.

Love Sally X
