Put a Bow On It Review - April 2016 - Canadian Lifestyle Subscription Box

This box was provided complimentary for review.
** As of Summer 2017, this company is closed. **

What is it? Put a Bow On It 
How Much? $59.99/month, plus tax and $10 shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars. 
What’s in it?   A beautifully wrapped gift curated with a fun & exciting theme

Put a Bow On It is a Canadian subscription service based in St. Albert, Alberta. Each month, Put a Bow On It sends a box of fabulous lifestyle products curated around a fun and exciting theme. Boxes may include items from several categories, including cosmetics & beauty, jewellery & fashion, home decor, technology, cooking & baking, health & lifestyle, and more! Past themes have been "Time for Love" and "New Year's Ready". The March box, which I reviewed here, was curated around a travel theme!

The list price per month is on the higher end of the scale, but the cost includes GST and shipping. (Update Aug 2016: Tax and shipping are now extra). Monthly subscriptions automatically renew, until cancelled. Gift subscriptions do not re-new. Order by the 14th of the month and your subscription will start in the following month. For example, order by April 14, and your first box will be May. Order after April 14, and your first box will be June.

I love that Put a Bow On It comes wrapped like a beautiful gift. Inside the wrapping, you'll find this branded cardboard box. This would make a great gift subscription, just on the presentation alone!

April's theme: It's a Spring Thing

The product card includes details on each item. This month the box is valued at $80.

First look!

Polka Dot Umbrella (~$10)
An umbrella is a great addition to a spring box. This polka dot one is compact and stylish. I couldn't find this online, but it came in a box branded "Celebrate It", which is a line of party supplies and favours sold at Michael's.

Kate Spade Le Pavillion Reusable Shopping Bag ($16) 
This nylon tote is perfect. It rolls up easily so you can stash it in your purse while out  shopping. Save the environment and look stylish at the same time!

Kate Spade Knee High Socks (~$15)
I'm seeing a trend here. Polka dots for springtime! These socks are no longer available on the Kate Spade website, but I did find them on re-seller sites like eBay and Poshmark. 

Faux Leather Tassel Key Chain ($4.95) 
Use this tassel fob as a key ring or a purse or bag charm. It took some digging, but I found the identical one for sale on Etsy from Lake House Craft Supply. The ones featured in the photo on the product card are from a different Etsy retailer, which offers slightly different leather versions. 

The Body Shop Coconut Treats Gift Set ($10)
This little gift cube comes with travel size versions of Coconut Shower Cream, Coconut Body Milk, and a mini "bath lily" (aka: loofa).
This lightweight scarf is a great addition for spring. I like the colour scheme and the butterfly pattern is very pretty. 

The April Put a Bow On It box included six items, with a retail value over $63 US ($80 Cdn). The items chosen fit the spring theme pretty well. I like that Put a Bow On It curates products from well known brands and companies. The accessories included this month will be great for transitioning my look from winter to spring. As I said last month, this box would make a great gift for Mother's Day. I know my mom would love these items! Subscribe by April 14th (tomorrow) in order to receive the May box.

    1. The scarf is very pretty. I believe it's still available at H&M. They have it in pink as well.
