If you’re a mommy, you know more than anyone how busy our job is. It’s a 24/7, unending affair. Never again will I underestimate the ability to be able to go somewhere with free hands, instead of clumsily lugging around a stroller, diaper bag, insulated food carrier, the list goes on- all while attempting to keep my clothes from looking like an art project gone wrong, and desperately trying to keep my toddler tantrum + tear free.
It seems like an annual Mother’s Day celebration just isn’t enough sometimes to recognize all of our unseen, daily efforts. But that’s exactly where Tonttu Box comes in.
If you haven’t heard of the brand before, Tonttu Box is a monthly subscription box for both mommy-to-bes and current mommies alike. For $39.99 a month, you receive a personally selected box of goodies for you and your little one. And if you’re sitting there telling yourself that $40 a month might not be worth it, the value of the goodies inside exceeds the $40 you’d pay, so it’s a great bang for your buck.
Last week, I finally received my Tonttu Box in the mail and I’m so excited to share with you guys what was in my box, as well as my thoughts on all the products inside.
(As a disclaimer, this is a sponsored post and I received this box for free. However, as always, all opinions shared on my blog are 100% my own, and every sponsored product I review is a product that I personally love and highly recommend.)
Here’s what was in my November 2016 Tonttu Box:
Botany and Wax “Cranberry Marmelade” ($12.00)
Where to even start with this? This is one of my most beloved products in the box because it seriously smells like the holidays. When I first opened up the jar and got a big whiff of the scent, a rush of Thanksgiving and Christmas nostalgia went straight through my veins. This might just be one of my favorite scents. (Which is saying a lot, since I love my candles.)
Mint & Feather “Bows and Bowties” ($8.50)
This is a cute bow + bowtie that can either be placed in your little girl’s hair or on your little boy’s shirt. It’s a sweet little accessory to have on hand for dressier days.
Brinware Placemat ($8.50)
This placemat is so handy. It sticks to any surface easily and makes meal times a lot less messier. You simply wipe off any reside from the silicone surface and bam! You have yourself a quick cleanup.
VOESH Collagen Gloves and Socks ($14.00)
These two products tied with the Botany and Wax Candle for my #1 favorite products in the box. Talk about a quick (and much-needed) pampering treatment that can be easily applied in the comforts of your own home.
The collagen gloves and socks were super easy to apply and weren’t messy in the slightest. The smell of the lotion inside was light and pleasant. Afterwards, my hands and feet felt as soft as my toddler’s cheeks. Seriously! I just applied them at night for a few minutes while watching Food Network, and rubbed the rest of the product residue onto my arms and legs for an extra treat.
Original Squeeze Bottle ($15.00)
This bottle couldn’t have come at a better time. My little one loves homemade smoothies, and I couldn’t find the right solution for how to serve a smoothie without a mess. I tried straw cups and all the like, but the smoothie was always too thick to go through the straw.
This squeeze bottle makes it easy to bring along any type of puree or smoothie on-the-go without a mess. The only negative I have about the product is that it can potentially be messy, since there’s no leak valve to prevent the liquid from coming out, so it’s definitely for toddlers 2+. My little one isn’t there yet, but a few more months, and this squeeze bottle will be perfect for him!
Overall, I would highly recommend the Tonttu Box for all mommies and mommy-to-bes out there. It’s the perfect gift for a friend or family member too. There’s just something so special about receiving a package in the mail filled with little surprises.
