This is a review of the July Debut Box, which begins shipping next month. Spots are still available so if you are interested, be sure to sign up soon!

The debut box is themed Canada 150. Perfect timing! July is Canada's 150th birthday, so a Canada 150 themed box is perfect. The tissue fits the theme perfectly.

The debut box is the biggest and features 7 items instead of the usual 3-5 items.

First look!

Kylee's Keepsakes Home Wall Decor Plaque
This wooden plaque is made by a woman in Bramford, Ontario. This is a really nice piece. Kylee doesn't have a website (just Facebook) so I can't give a value, but I would estimate this goes for at least $20.

Here is the backside. It has a hook and is ready for hanging!

Cranberry Soap Company Soap Bar in Sweet Pea ($7.50)
Cranberry Soap Co is based in Ajax, Ontario. This soap is made from olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, glycerine, fragrance oils, and mica. I love the pretty colours!

9 Senses Aromatherapy Candle in Sensual ($14)
This company is based in Maple, Ontario. 9 Senses was started by a mother creating natural and soothing body products that her daughter, who is on the Autism spectrum, would find comforting. 9 Senses also sells sensory therapy products that may help improve the lives of those on the Autism spectrum. Partial proceeds from the sale of these products goes to the Autism York Regional Chapter in Ontario. This beeswax candle smells lovely and is made from ylang-ylang, patchouli, tangerine, lavender, and sandalwood.

Hugo & Nate Confections Artisan French Caramels (4 pieces)
This little sampler bag contained four Fleur de Sel flavoured caramels. They were absolutely delicious. Hugo & Nate is based in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario.

Hidden Gems by Raquel Maple Leaf Necklace
This jewellery designer is based in Milton, Ontario. Her Etsy shop is currently on break so I can't get a value for this unique Canadian-inspired piece.

Here is a close up of the little maple leaf with red and white beads.

Canadian Mint Anniversary Edition Quarter
This little item was included as a bonus for Canada 150. It's one of the general circulation quarters to celebrate our country's milestone.

Andrea Hill Canada Map Watercolour Print (5x7, $5.40)
Andrea Hill is based in Kingston, Ontario. She creates gorgeous watercolour art prints and cards. This is a giclée print on acid-free, archival textured watercolour paper. It features an original watercolour painting of a map of Canada done in rainbow colours.

The Debut July Box from Canadian Originals includes seven products. I couldn't get values for every item, but I'm pretty sure these products are worth much more than the monthly box cost. The Canada 150 theme is perfectly timed and the curation was very well done. The Canada-themed items are unique without being cliche souvenir type items. I'm very impressed with Canadian Originals debut box!

This box begins shipping the first week of July. There are still spots available! As a bonus, sign up for Canadian Originals' newsletter before July 1st and receive promo code for 10% off your first box.
