You’ve agonized over the dorm room deco, laptops, books, and tuition. Your child is college bound and experiencing many holidays and events away from you. I’ve discovered a great way to stay “Connected” with your child when they get sick, on their birthday, during exam time, or even just because.
I was lucky enough to review one of their popular boxes, Box-O-Birthday.
From the Box-O-Box Website:
Now that birthdays with ‘Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkey’ & “Spin the Bottle” are behind us, it doesn’t mean that when your college student is away, you can’t have him/her feel special on the big day.
The Box-O-Birthday care package comes complete with a Pinata, party hats, a Box-O-Box microwavable cake and lots more! After all, if you can’t THROW a party, you can surely SEND one!
This care package includes the following:
* Box-O-Box Piñata
* Box-O-Box Birthday Cake
* Silly String
* Birthday Balloons
* Silly Party Hats
* Birthday Taffy
* Happy Birthday Chocolate Bar
* Party Streamers
* Happy Birthday Banner
* Tons of Birthday Candy
* Noise Makers
Although, it wasn’t any of our birthdays, my children and I enjoyed looking through all the goodies! Putting on the silly party hats, munching on the yummy candy, and laughing with the silly string and noise makers.
The box itself cracked us up! Once you open it there are “instructions” and excerpts to give just about anyone a smile. Check it out:
If you’re anything like me, birthdays and holidays seem to sneak up on you. Box-O-Box has you covered shipping your care package within one business day. Orders placed after 3pm EST will ship the following business day.
I absolutely love Box-O-Box and the variety of packages they offer, however, I do have a few Momma Improvements I’d like to point out.
–Price The large boxes average at 49.99. For a bigger family on a budget, such as us (family of 5), 50.00 is a bit much. You *might* be able to find some items you’d like to send and ship it for a bit cheaper. Again, I wait till the last minute so Box-O-Box is a perfect option if budget isn’t an issue.
–Arrival Most of the candy in this box is of hard consistency (Lollipops, Tootsie Rolls, Taffy), however, there is a big chocolate candy bar that was completely melted when we received our box. It didn’t make a mess in the box itself, but was completely inedible. Living in the Texas heat, chocolate is so hard to ship.
Although, I felt the need to let you guys in on a few improvements I would make, Box-O-Box would definitely be an option for families to stay connected and celebrate together, even miles away! In fact, grab up the Cool Dorm Stuff Box to start the year off right. They EVEN offer Box-O-Mester, a care package sent all semester long!
To make a purchase head over to www.boxobox.com. Prices vary.
One lucky winner will receive Movie Night Box-O-Box, which includes:
