Pelikan Box is new Canadian subscription boxes that sends monthly care packages to college students. Boxes can be purchased for yourself or as a gift for the student in your life. Every box includes a snack, a treat, school supplies, and other surprise items. The goal is to include products from independent Canadian businesses in each box. Pelikan Box ships from September to April each year, taking the summer semester off. This is the very first Pelikan Box!
The box is well packaged with care and attention. A detailed product card is also included.
Good Luck Sock Women's Rooster Crew Socks ($13)
I love getting new socks. Good Luck Sock has a subscription too. They are based in Edmonton and all their socks are designed in Canada. Click here to see my Good Luck Sock reviews.
Kewaza Energy Balls ($3.49)
These are little balls of goodness. They are organic, dairy free, soy free, gluten free, preservative free, and free of refined sugars. Kewaza is a Canadian company!
Craftedvan Mini Magnetic Bookmark ($3)
I have one of these bookmarks and they are very useful. I also see Craftedvan at a lot of craft shows and markets around Vancouver, and I love the designs and artwork. This coffee cup design is super cute.
April Gold Canvas Pencil Case ($10)
This cute case has a woven Aztec design. It's made in Montreal by a mother daughter team - the daughter born in April and the mother, a seamstress, with a heard of gold.
Poo Pourri in Original Citrus (2oz, $15)
This is hilarious. I bought one of these for my boyfriend's place so it's great to have one at my house. The blend of essential oils will mask any odours you leave behind in the loo. Great for students in the dorms!
Davenport's Cowboy Crunch ($5.60)
Davenport's Tasty Sensations are made in Okotoks, Alberta. This variety is a mix of cashews and peanuts, bathed in white and milk chocolate. Umm... YUM!
The inaugural Pelikan Box included six items, valued at $50 Canadian. This box costs $45 Canadian per month, including shipping. The items included are great for students. The pencil case and bookmark are useful, while the snack, treat, and socks are fun surprises. All of the products are from independent Canadian companies. This is perfect for a student, especially one living in residence. There's nothing better than receiving a care package in the mail!
