First look.

Ideal for styling on the go, the sleek new Mini ToGo features premium tourmaline plates, compact ergonomic shape and a gorgeous travel case that gives you the freedom to straighten, curl, wave and flip your hair like a pro on the go!

This is a pretty great quality flat iron for being a mini. I was quite happy and shocked when I saw this. For one, the value is huge, but also, I was just thinking about buying a mini travel iron the other day. I love it when things you need show up unexpectedly in the mail!

Makeup Pouch  (Bonus)
This pouch isn't listed on the product card, but it's a nice addition to a travel themed collection. The outside is plastic coated and the inside is fabric. It's pretty and compact.

Not only are these the perfect sizes for travel (TSA approved!) but they has travel inspired names and scents.

The March gift box from Put a Bow On It included 7 items, with a retail value of $124 US ($162 CDN today). This box costs $59.99 per month, including tax and shipping. The packaging was very well done, and it felt like I was opening a personalized gift. I love the travel theme (it's right up my alley!) and the curation is fantastic. The products are all high quality and from well known brands and labels. I like that everything included fits the theme well and the products are practical and usable. Put a Bow On It would make a fantastic gift for yourself, a friend, and even for Mother's Day. Make sure you subscribe by April 14th in order to receive the May box.
