Subscription Box Unboxing
Subscription Box Review
Everything that I received in my Universe Bound “Sound Chamber” Box. This is really packed full of items as all their boxes are!
So what is all this stuff?
The box insert. This tells us about each of the items that we received in our box.
I was really surprised to open my box and see a pillow inside. This is really cute – i love the print and the shape. It’s the size to wedge in a seat and is the perfect shape for a headrest. The pillows that were included in these boxes were made in house by Universe Bound staff!
I thought it was cool how the bottom had this fun and bright print.
Here is a side view of the shape of the this pillow.
Plutonian Mist with Lavendar Seed Candle
Next up in our box we have this bright blue dish shaped candle. I love that they spread lavender petals along the top and it smells amazing! This is great staging for a relaxing evening curling up with a great book! This was also made in house by the staff at Universe Bound. One of the things I love most about this box are all the handmade bath and body items that they include. They all have fun names and smell amazing!
Death Wish Coffee
This “World’s Strongest Coffee” will awaken your inner rebel with it’s blend of Arabica and Robusta beans. This coffee has double the strength of average coffee but it doesn’t contain any added caffeine. This is 100% organic certified as well. This was included in a past box we received from Universe Bound and I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not but I found it to be very tasty.
Clementine Sunset Tea from Jasmine Pearl Tea Company
To balance all the caffeine that is in our coffee from this box we received an herbal tea. This blend contains rooibos, orange zest, citrus essential oils and chamomile. which is fruity and bright. You can serve this hot or iced and I love that the chamomile makes this mild and relaxing.
Every package from Universe Bound includes a variety of snacks. This month we received 2 packages of Fig Newton cookies. Each package contains 2 cookies – I think these will be great to add to my kids lunch boxes! I love that they have no corn syrup and contain whole grains, making them a much healthier option!
Iced Animal Crackers
The next snack that was in my box are these iced animal crackers from Mother’s. I’m going to be completely honest… a long time ago when my metabolism was much more forgiving I was addicted to these. I’d buy a big bag and eat A LOT of them. I try to stay away from them but getting this small snack bag.. is pretty great. I enjoyed them and now I’ll just have to forget they exist again!
The final snack in our box for the month are three of these delicious Riesen Candies. Who can say no to caramel covered in dark chocolate. I shared these with the kids who also really enjoyed them!
This is the second time that Universe Bound has included Rock Sugar in their boxes. You can enjoy these small bits of sugar alone or add them to your tea to add a pop of sweetness. I love the little bottle that these came in. I may use these to top a baked good, they seem like they’d look really cool presented that way!
Dead Wrong Audiobook by Helen H. Durrant
And finally we get to the heart of this box, one of our two audiobooks that was included in our package. This book by Helen H. Durrant is a murder mystery that involves police partners D.I. Calladine and D.S. Ruth Bayliss who are tracking down a killer before he has the chance to strike again! This is the first in a new series of Ruth Bayliss and Tom Calladine.
This book sounds really interesting and suspenseful. The book is performed by Jonathan Keeble.
Invisible Hand Audiobook by Miles Holmes
Our second audiobook for the month is Invisible Hand by Miles Holmes. Invisible Hand is the beginning of a saga that focuses on arcane technology, empires and conspiracy. This story follows Zekh and Gaur a novice pilot and neanderthal that is set to be delivered by the pilot. Traveling deep into untamed territory the pair discover an old evil that will alter human history if it is not stopped.
This book sounds like it’s going to be really good and I can’t wait to listen to it. It is performed by Eric Martin.
So in summary
Presentation: Everything arrived to us perfectly in our box from Universe Bound and I do love that the insert had a wax seal on the envelope!
Quality: Both of our audiobooks are brand new and in excellent condition and the other items are handmade and great quality which makes this such a neat box!
Curation: I was really surprised to see how much stuff was included in this package, I feel like they really do their subscribers a great service of including many and varied products along with their books!
