Taking it easy with Distraction Box

April 12, 2017

We’re huge fans of subscription boxes, and over the last year or so we’ve tried a few, Bake Box and Marley Spoon to name a couple.

I’m a week into maternity leave and while I’m trying to keep fairly busy, I’m also trying to carve out time to take it easy and relax. A very kind friend of my Mum sent me a Distraction Box to try out (Thanks Helen!) and having not come across them before I thought I’d reveal all, and share what was inside.

Designed to help you escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life, each Distraction Box includes 5-8 different luxury treats to help promote well-being. My box had a ‘Hibernation to Happiness’ theme, stepping out into Spring and into lighter brighter days.

So what was in my Distraction Box?

– A magnetic colouring book with crayons
– Bakedin Gluten-Free Mug Brownie Mix
– Hello: Notecards & Envelopes
– Beefayre ‘Bee Happy’ Tea Lights
– Birchall Green Tea & Peach infusion
– Happy Mug

Included in the box, there was also a little booklet, explaining exactly how the products included can help you unwind.

I was particularly excited to see the Beefayre tea lights. Orange and jasmine scented, I’ve previously written about my love of citrus home fragrance, and smelling amazing these certainly didn’t disappoint.

The perfect gift to celebrate the start of maternity leave, I can imagine a Distraction Box would be a lovely way to cheer up anyone feeling under the weather or going through a particularly tough time.

A great balance between foodie, home and stationary treats, I’m all set for a relaxing afternoon, enjoying some peace and quiet while it lasts. Our baby boy could arrive any time now, so after a productive morning I’m putting my feet up!
