Peaches & Petals: January 2015, February Spoiler & 50% Off Coupon Code!

The lovely folks at Peaches & Petals, a lifestyle subscription, graciously sent me their January box to review plus a great coupon code just for you. If you’re a first time subscriber, you can use the code PEACHTHERAPY for 50% off your first month’s box! (Gift subscriptions are excluded.)
Box
Peaches & Petals recently changed their pricing, so jump down to “The Backstory” for more details.
This month we’ve got #letsdothischallenge as our theme. Sounds fun, so let’s cut to the chase and see what we got!
Open Box

Infuser Water Bottle
Fruit Infuser Water Bottle

Description: “Let’s start off 2016 in a fresh and flavorful way! Combine the revitalizing properties of H20 with the power of antioxidants form your favorite fruit with this fabulous infusing water bottle.”
Verdict: Gift
A water bottle definitely fits a new year, adventure type theme. This looks like a really sturdy bottle, but I unfortunately already have something similar so I will pass this along as a gift.

Selfie Stick
Selfie Stick
Description: The perfect way to document all of life’s adventures! Use this to take a photo of yourself trying something new and submit your photo to be in entered to win an experience of a lifetime!”
Verdict: Like
This selfie stick includes access to a contest where the winner can receive a free “experience” of their choice – from skydiving to exotic cooking classes. Personally, I don’t take many selfies, but I thought this was a fun, interesting thing to include and I’m sure it will come in handy for the blog. It also fits perfectly with the theme of the box.

Bracelet
Adventure Jewelry

Description: “Wear this for your adventure inspiration. Whether you travel close to home or to an exotic far off land, do something amazing this year. You are worth it.”
Verdict: Like the idea/Dislike the design
I love unique jewelry and really like the idea of a piece that seems fun and adventurous, but this bracelet just isn’t my taste. I think something that incorporated a bit of actual nature (like sea shells or pressed flowers) or was easy to wear during activities (like a leather bracelet), would have been better a better choice. I’ll add it to my gift stash as I’m sure someone else will probably really like it.

Cookbook
Healthy Cooking Cookbook

Description: Filled with delicious, easy to follow recipes, that are sure to motivate you to try new foods and maintain, or start a healthy lifestyle. We challenge you to try a food completely out of your comfort zone. It may just become your new fav!”
Verdict: Like/Gift
I adore cookbooks and I love that this one is healthy cooking but with home style recipes that most people would want to try. The cookbook is an older one, but I don’t think it takes away much from the value. It’s hardcover, has a ton of recipes and I believe would appeal to most folks. Because I have a lot of cookbooks and approximately eleventybillion recipes pinned on Pinterest, I’m going to add this to a house-warming gift for a friend. I think she’ll really enjoy it.

Sticker
Inspirational Decal

Description: Display this quote in a place you will see often, so it may lead to a constant reminder to live life to the fullest, and to take advantage of any opportunities for adventure that may come your way!
Verdict: Hit!
I like to do a lot of decoupage and crafting and I know I’ll be able to use this sticker in a fun project.

OVERALL
Peaches + Petals 1.2016
Verdict:
Hit!
I thought Peach & Petals’ theme of adventure and new experiences was a perfect choice for January. They recently increased their monthly box to $19.99, in order to offer higher quality items and I think it really paid off. I received this box for free for review purposes, but if I paid $19.99 I would have been quite satisfied with the items I received.  I really appreciate that Peaches & Petals works hard to put a themed box together and I thought they put together a really interesting mix this month.

So have you ever used a Selfie Stick?  Dish!

FEBRUARY SPOILER!
For February, the theme is #loveissweet and the guaranteed item is a Love themed throw pillow cover!

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
