The box and packaging is very luxurious. The custom printing is very professional and I love that the box is wrapped up like a gift. It makes the unboxing even more enjoyable. 

The enclosed product card is very detailed and includes sources and prices. The addition of professional quality photos is a nice touch as well. 

This box also included a Welcome card, a Christmas card, and a handwritten Thank You note. All the stationery is coordinating and custom printed for White Willow Box, which again, gives the box a very professional and luxurious feel.

Crabtree & Evelyn - All Butter Strawberries & Clotted Cream Biscuits (100g, $8)
Indulgent, crumbly and chunky biscuits baked in Scotland using a traditional recipe, these biscuits are a great excuse to pop the kettle on. Baked with luxuriously smooth double cream and juicy strawberries, each bite melts in your mouth.
I've tried Crabtree & Evelyn body products, but never their home items or fine foods. There were six different varieties sent out this month. These 100g tins are available in a 6-pack gift box.  The Strawberry & Clotted Cream cookies sound divine and would wonderful with a cup of tea in my new Royal Albert  Polka Rose Vintage tea cup. It's my souvenir from my time in England last month. Fancy cookies like this beg to be served alongside a fancy tea cup and saucer! It's the English way.

Timree Holiday Cards  ($7.95US)
World Renown artist, Timree Gold of Newport Beach is sought after for the most personalized and custom gifts. Timree captures people’s memories and favorite things with her paintbrush.
These adorable holiday cards were included in this box as a "free gift" so I take that to meat it's a bonus item. I already sent my holiday cards out but I will definitely keep these for next year!

Sephora Collection - Kiss Me Balm in Strawberry Fizz ($10)
A kissable, scented lip balm with subtle or no color, that provides up to four hours of hydration. The dome-shaped applicator makes it easy to wear and reapply for moisturized lips all day long.
This looks bright but it's actually pretty sheer as it's a lip balm. It also smells faintly of strawberries! There were five different varieties sent out this month. 

Bath & Body Works White Barn Scented Candle in Lavender Vanilla ($4.50)
Made with a concentration of fragrance oil and exclusive vegetable wax and lead-free wicks, these candles burn evenly for an amazing fragrance experience.
I normally hate lavender but I don't mind this one. The vanilla tones down the lavender and it's actually quite nice. Unfortunately, this candle is no longer available at Bath & Body Works.

Calvin Klein 3-Piece Winter Set ($88)
Stay cozy, warm and stylish all season long in this matching set finished with signature logo charms. Set includes hat, scarf, and gloves.
Subscribers will receive this set white or beige (like mine). It's a lovely set in a great neutral colour and would make a great gift. The gloves are "tech gloves". The tips of the thumb and index fingers fold back so you can still text away. This set is not available from the Calvin Klein website though. I could only find it on Amazon, Ebay, and Zappos.

The December White Willow Box included five products, with a retail value over $118 Canadian. All the products are full or deluxe sizes. I like that there is something from several different categories - fashion, beauty, home, and edible. The bonus gift card are a nice touch for the holidays too. The majority of products are from well known and higher end brands, which along with the awesome packaging, adds to the luxurious feel. It seems that a few items are no longer available for retail sale, so I wonder if that would effect the overall value. It's not a huge deal though because the value would still be more than the cost paid, and the products are all fantastic. Overall I'm really pleased with White Willow Box. It's so great to see a box like this in the Canadian market and I look forward to seeing more.
