Winter 2020 - The Jilly Box Subscription
I'm a big fan of Jillian Harris, so when she announced last year that she was starting a subscription box, I was so excited! The first box was the Winter 2019 box and I waiting in an online queue for the whole day trying to get one and sadly, I did not so I have been waiting patiently for a random selection ever since - I finally got picked to receive a Fall box, (not a subscription though), and I loved it! For the Winter Box, I didn't get randomly picked, but I was able to purchase a box through a friend of a friend and I was so excited to get another box!
I purchased this box on my own
The Jilly Box is a quarterly seasonal subscription box - the products within the box include some of Jillian’s (and Team Jilly’s!) favourite items (and brands) from home decor, fashion, bath and beauty, health and wellness, accessories perfect for each season. Some of the items included will be custom designed exclusively for the Jilly Box. The Jilly Box really focuses on including products from small, local businesses while being ethically sourced and inclusive. They also focus on reducing plastic waste and packaging - the big boxes can be turned inside out and reused!
The Jilly Box is $199 CAN quarterly + taxes and includes free shipping to Canada and the U.S. And, while this is on the pricier end for a subscription box, it will contain at least $400 worth of products each season! The box is shipped out prior to the start of each season - so the Fall box shipped in mid-August, the Winter box will ship in mid-November, the Spring box will ship in mid-February, and the Summer box will ship mid-May!
The box always includes a little booklet that includes information about each product, recipes, interviews with makers and more! What's fun about this month's magazine is my instagram picture is in it! Woo hoo - that bottom right picture! So cool!
Here is a closer look at all the products in the Winter 2020 Jilly Box:
Larson Jennings The Jilly Watch in Rose Gold ~ $250.00 CAN. An accessory staple! This gorgeous slim Jilly Watch with a Milanese Strap is available in either gold, rose gold, or silver! It is also custom-designed with a dainty heart on the face for an exclusive Jilly touch!
I chose the Rose Gold option and it's super pretty! I haven't ever really been a watch person, but I just started to wear a fitness watch and I am used to it now. I like the step tracker and sleep feature, so I've been enjoying it. But, this is really pretty, I think I will keep it for more of a special occasion watch because it's so pretty!
Friday Sock Co. Jilly Socks ~ $18.00 CAN. Friday Sock Co. products are designed in Calgary, and ethically made in Italy using certified oekotex cotton. Friday Sock Co.'s mission is to make people smile through responsibly made products while giving back to the community and beyond. So far in 2020 they have donated over $50,000.00 to charitable causes.
Jillian has included so many Calgary companies in her box and I'm always excited to see them - Friday Sock Co. is cute and these socks are adorable! They have little Santa's on them, and it also says Jolly at ♥ on the bottom, which is a classic Jilly print! This print was exclusively made for the Jilly Box!
Joe Fresh Chenille Pom-pom Beanie ~ $16.00 CAN. A Joe Fresh favourite, this cozy ribbed-knit beanie is crafted from soft-chenille topped with a fun faux-fur pom-pom.
This is an adorable and soft toque - it fits me well, but I have a small head so I'm wondering if it doesn't fit everyone well. But, I don't have any toques, so I'm happy with this and I've already used this this Winter!
Droplet Home Goods - Jillian Harris x Droplet Blanket 100% Organic Cotton Throw ~ $185.00 CAN. The Jillian Harris x Droplet Home Good throw is your very own custom made, handwoven piece of cozy for your home! Made from organic Turkish cotton that gets softer the more you use it, this throw adds a pop of colour and softness to your home.
This is a gorgeous blanket - it's so soft and lovely! I love the little heart accent on it and the light blue suits the colours in my house! This is a really nice, luxurious item to have in a box and it's no small throw, it's a good size blanket! This is a women founded brand and these are handloomed! Gorgeous! (This is limited edition, but they still have some left on the website!)
The Cross Decor & Design Happy Place Sign ~ $9.95 CAN. Proclaim to all that this is your happy place, whether it is your home, cottage or back yard.
This is a heavy little cast iron sign and it's adorable! I put it right on my family picture wall and it's adorable! It could go outside as well (that's where Jilly keeps this little sign!) Also, this brand is female owned and based in Vancouver.
Smart Sweets Sweet Fish ~ $3.99 CAN. Prepare to drool! Smart Sweets Sweet Fish candy are a radically better choice with 92% less sugar than the other candy fish and only 3 grams of sugar for the whole bag. We've innovated juicy, plant-based Sweet Fish with our pinkie promise: delicious candy free from sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners and added sugar.
Okay, I'm already a fan of Smart Sweets, especially the Sweet Fish - these are actually delicious! I like that they are less sugar and still taste good, plus Smart Sweets is a women owned brand!
Living Apothecary Tea Co Detoxify Loose Leaf Tea ~ $48.00 CAN and Steeper ~ $20.00 CAN. Detoxify is a mineral-rich tea tonic meant to detoxify and cleanse gently enough for everyday use. The botanicals within this tea blend will assist our natural detoxification pathways to remove any built-up impurities from our everyday living. Leaving you with a renewed energy and a clear mind.
This is a huge container of tea, and I'm typically a tea lover, but my cupboard is overflowing and I just don't need anymore (let alone, with this much!) But, I do think this will make a nice gift so I'm going to pass it on. The Steeper fits mugs and it's probably the best steeper I've ever used! This is also a women owned, Canadian brand.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this Jilly Box - it had such a great variety of products in it! While the box is pretty indulgent at $200 a quarter, but this box came with a value of $550.94 CAN - lots of the products included are exclusive or designed specifically for the box, and I think that adds a nice touch! I enjoy the addition of home goods and accessories!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get picked for another box or a subscription soon! Have you gotten a Jilly Box?!
