A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

My first Bock Box subscription review!

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

I had a really hard time making a Christmas list this year because my normal go-to item (read: clothing) was nowhere on it. I have no idea what size I'll be post baby, and with less than six weeks to go, I really didn't want to get a whole lot of new maternity clothes. So, my lovely mother gave me an awesome American Express gift card (thanks, mom!), and that money was burning a hole in my pocket. 

At the same time, I loooooooove getting treats in the mail. Is there anything better than coming home from a long day at work and finding something fantastic waiting for you in the mailbox? Methinks not. That's probably why I love services like Stitch Fix and Sparkle Box so much! But, for Christmas, I wanted to try something new. 


Enter the Bock Box! 

I've been toying with the idea of ordering a Bock Box ever since I saw it on the Courtney Bock Designs web site. The Bock Box is a monthly subscription service (available in 3, 6, or 12 month increments), and you fill out a questionnaire including your sizes, monogram initials, favorite colors, special interests, and more. Then, each month, a beautiful box shows up at your door containing surprise treats chosen especially for you! AND, you get a stunning amount of products! A 3-month subscription costs $50, but you're guaranteed to get at least $70 in product, a 6-month subscription costs $100, but you're guaranteed to get at least $150 in product, and a 12-month subscription is $185, but you're guaranteed to get over $300 in product. That just can't be beat! 
I filled out my questionnaire on New Year's Eve, and received my Box today, so it was a super quick turnaround! In my survey, I made sure to say that I love all things related to fitness, reading, writing, coffee, and babies (I also made sure to include that I'm currently 8 months pregnant, so the size I put down for the shirt definitely will not fit right now!)! 

And I'm THRILLED to show you what I got in my first Bock Box! 

My items this month focus on all things baby, which are right up my alley! First up is the 8x8 My To Do's Before I'm Due note pad. I love the large pages, and I really love the subtle Greek Key symbol all over the page (it makes me think of our amazing honeymoon!). I was planning to start my hospital packing list, and this thick card stock note pad is the perfect place to do it! I also received the gorgeous Kate Spade Dear Babysitter note pad. It includes 75 pages where we can write instructions to our sitters including where we'll be, bed times, allergies, and contact information. I'm a sucker for anything Kate Spade, and I know this note pad will come in so handy over the next several years (or while the supply lasts!)! 

One of the things I really love about the Bock Box is that each box is unique to each person. I have a few other friends who started subscriptions this month, and their boxes were totally different (one received a monogrammed Kate Spade Planner and the other received an adorable tank top and hair ties since she also loves to work out)! I love the personal touch that went in to making the box for each person, and I'm already so excited to see what the three of us get next month too!
