Hazel Lane sends a carefully curated box of surprise goodies from that month’s selected city that they think represents its spirit. The idea is to give you an affordable way to explore the world without having to leave your house! Items you can expect to see included are food, drink, clothing, accessories and handcrafted items chosen by locals with the environment, social responsibility and CHICNESS in mind. I subscribe to the Ladies “Carry-On” box which is $45/month.
Hazel Lane ships via USPS Priority Mail and took just a few days to arrive. I thought this was the April box, but a box must have been skipped somewhere or they changed how they categorize boxes or something because this is the May box.
I hadn’t seen any spoilers for this box yet which made it extra fun to open!
The May 2015 Hazel Lane destination was “Seattle” and included the following:
~Rosanna, Inc. Cloud Tray ($18): I love this! It’s totally me and I will use it either on my nightstand or in my office to store my rings, hair ties, etc.
~SallybytheSea Tea Towel ($8.95): LOL! This is awesome. I can’t say I would ever go out an hunt for Bigfoot, but I do watch the news and listen intently when someone reports a sighting.
~Seattle Cider ($4); According to the information card this is to be included in the box, however, mine was missing. I’m really curious to try this because I think it is a hard cider. I will need to e-mail them and see what happened. I did get a lip balm which isn’t on the information card, but that was from a previous month so I don’t know what happened there.
~Mini Gurgle Pot ($22): I don’t know exactly what I am going to do with this, but I love it. The information card suggests using it to water your indoor plants or as a creamer, but I am thinking maybe as a mini vase? It’s awesome!
~Seattle Sundries Lotion ($7.50): This smells great and Hazel Lane is right, this would be great in a carry-on! I just got into solid lotions a year or so ago, but I so wish I would have found them sooner.
~Bonus Items: The box also included a “Where Magazine” and a Cupcake Royale Gift Card (although my box was missing this as well). No value was assigned to these but I think they are a cute addition to the box.
All totaled I came up with a value of $60.25 for the May 2015 Hazel Lane box. That includes the value of the cider that I didn’t received, but I have had great experience with Hazel Lane’s customer service so I am not worried. I thought this box was fantastic and felt like it included things I would have picked up on my own at a cute Seattle shop.
