The Fall 2019 Box
Leaves crunching underneath your boots, the scent of cinnamon in the air, a cozy scarf to keep warm on the chilly evenings — it’s officially efterårshygge! Grab your coziest blankets and unpack the autumn treats in this box for a little pampering.
Curl up with a good book — and a mug of something steamy
Perhaps it’s the influence of September and the back-to-school season, but something about the arrival of fall always makes us want to stock up our bookshelves with great reads. To get things started for subscribers, we’ve included Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere. While e-readers may be convenient, feeling the paper as you turn the pages makes reading a much more hygge experience, so we love paper books.
We also have a beautiful ceramic mug from Wildflower Colour & Clay in a neutral speckled tone that will look stunning in any home. The maker behind the brand hand-crafts her pieces in small batches, and the mug we’ve selected has a perfect indent for your warmth-seeking fingers. It will become a staple in your fall routine, the perfect vessel for everything from your morning brew to a mug of spiced apple cider after a long day outside.
Of course, we can’t forget the sweet treats. While we love incorporating fall flavours such as pumpkin and cinnamon into home baking — a very hygge activity — sometimes you just need a quick sweet fix. Nibble away at the Utoffeea toffee — the blend of crunchy and nutty cashews, buttery toffee, and creamy chocolate is the perfect solution to any craving. If you’re looking for something to sip alongside your snack, try the cinnamon plum tea from Dadirri Naturals. The mixture of the fruity plum and current notes with the warmth of cinnamon is the perfect drink to welcome the season.
Draw a bath and pamper yourself
We love to include bath products in our boxes because there’s just nothing as relaxing as sinking into a warm bath after a long day. Take your pampering session to the next level with the vanilla chai bath soak from Buck Naked Soap Company. The mixture will fill your bathroom with the smell of fragrant clove and vanilla, the perfect fall blend.
After you’ve finished your post-bath moisturizing, make sure not to forget your dry lips. The changing weather can wreak havoc on the delicate skin of the lips, which you can remedy with the lip balm from Siglarr Viking Naturals. The balm has only simple, all-natural ingredients — organic coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils. As an added bonus, moisturized lips provide the perfect canvas for any fun fall lipstick shades you want to try out — why not add another burst of color to the season with your beauty products?
Bring a bit of nature into your space
When the weather outside gets crisper, it can be tough to spend as much time in nature as in the warmer months. That’s why we love ways to bring elements of nature into the home for the season. From Nice Art People, we’ve included a unique piece of art crafted from repurposed fallen trees. The print is on a simple white backdrop, and could be put in any frame that matches your decor.
Once you’ve gotten your new piece of work situated, light the candle from Arrow It Forward and enjoy the ambience of the flickering light in any corner of your home, from your living room during a movie night to your bedroom for a little reading and relaxing.
Keep yourself — and your produce — cozy
Scarves are an essential part of our wardrobes come fall. Simply layering on a cozy scarf can transition just about any outfit into the chillier season — which is why we’ve included a great option to add to your collection. The pale gray knit scarf from Pokoloko is made from a mohair blend that is super soft and cozy, and features a fringe detail for a little added texture.
And, since you’re getting cozy, why not do the same for your produce? We’ve included a unique product from The Avocado Sock, a lanolin and wool fabric “sock” that you slip over an avocado to guarantee perfect ripeness, every time. The chilly weather has us reaching for all kinds of comforting dishes. With this addition to your kitchen, you can add ripe avocado slices to the top of any spicy dish you whip up.
