first look in the handmade hive box
Our first glimpse inside the Handmade Hive Box for February. 

what's in the handmade hive box
Everything that we received in our Handmade Hive Box for February. The theme for this box is "Love is in the Air" and we are "In LOVE" with the contents


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert. It details each item and it's retail value


big picture farm caramels
$10
This Goat's Milk Caramel Assortment is handmade in Vermont and tastes PHENOMENAL!

4 different flavor varieties were included; Raspberry Rhubarb, Brown Butter Bourbon, Cider Honey and Chocolate Mint and they were all unique and delicious!

The goat's milk gives these a much more creamy rich flavor and the subtle flavors of fruit are beautiful! We have to be honest and say that we ate these all in one sitting


chocolate from short stack editions
$14
This chocolate lover's cookbook boasts pages upon pages of recipes you can create with the food of love, chocolate!

We think this was a great inclusion as we get cookbooks so rarely in our subscription boxes!

the fruit boxx freeze dried strawberries
$3.14
This "Strawberry Summer" Freeze Dried Strawberry Mix was a yummy box inclusion!

Freeze Dried food isn't very common and we really enjoyed these!


meadow view beekeeping
$9
Hand poured in Kutztown Pennsylvania these are made SUPER close to our home! Love these tapered candles and think they would look great as a table centerpiece!


farmstead apothecary
$15.49
This large 8 ounce container of body butter is made with the purest Shea butter and won't leave a yucky residue. It's also plant based, vegan and has only 8 ingredients!

The formula is super thick and creamy and is perfect for after the shower or on those cold winter days. The scent is more Citrus than Rose but the balance is really wonderful!


frost'd mexican hot chcolate
$9
The FIRST and ONLY coconut oil snack frosting in existence - this "better for you" frosting is gluten free and we are impressed with their flavor variety

This has a true to form Mexican Hot Chocolate flavor - with sweet and spicy notes and the texture is fluffy and sooo scrumptious. Our box favorite!


$15
This gorgeous wine holder is made from beautiful reclaimed wood and is stunning!

It has so much interest and is eye catching!

A unique piece and a welcome inclusion into this "Love is in the Air" themed box!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Handmade Hive Box is awesome. We enjoy the entire experience of this box and really love that it's local to us! The presentation is great. Everything arrives exactly as it should and is packaged beautifully! The quality is awesome. Each item is handmade in small batches with attention to detail and with a focus on quality. The curation this month is wonderful. We feel like this box covers all of our Valentine's Day basics. You've got your tasty treats and a little something for wine as well as candles for ambiance! This was our favorite box for February so far and are super impressed!


As far as box economy the Handmade Hive box costs $44.99 and for that we received $75 in items which is an awesome deal!
