Put A Bow On It April Deluxe Review

Up until recently, Put a Bow On It offered two monthly boxes- Premium ($64.95 plus shipping) and Deluxe ($36 plus shipping). Both boxes have a different theme each month, and different items related to "lifestyle". Both boxes contain 4-5 items, and the Premium box is said to have higher value items. Personally, I prefer the Deluxe box. I think the items are just as good (if not better) as the items in the Premium box and I feel that the value of the items are more inline with what I pay for the box.

Sadly, in March, Put A Bow On It announced they would no longer be offering the Deluxe box. This was disappointing as I had recently decided that I liked the Deluxe box a lot more than the Premium box and that I would continue subscribing to the Deluxe box. At this time, I have no intention of re-subscribing to the Premium box.

The theme for the April Deluxe box is "April Showers". I'm not sure what the suggested retail value for the box is, as the printing of my product card was cut off mid-way through the last listed item. Put a Bow On It does not list individual product prices, just the overall value of the box.

Here is what was included in the April Deluxe box:
  •  Umbrella a practical item for an "April Showers" themed box. Would have been fun to have an umbrella in a colour other than black or with a fun print on it.
  • Kocostar Hair Mask in Hair Therapy This is a deep conditioning hair mask. Cute that they took the "April Showers" theme to mean rain or in-home showers.
  • EOS Lotion I am a fan of EOS lip balm and had no idea that they also did lotion! I'm excited to give this a try.
  • Relaxing Therapy Colouring Book I feel that the adult colour book, while still on trend and popular, is kind of dated and has been done by subscription boxes last year. 
  • Colour Pencils I like that colour pencils were included to go along with the colouring book. 
I think this was a cute box and the items fit the theme. I always feel that Put A Bow On It is sending items that were 'last season' or were included in other subscription boxes but months ago. This subscription comes across, at least to me, as a bit amateur. I am sad to see the Deluxe box come to an end. With this being their last Deluxe box, I has hoped they would go out with a bit of a 'bang'. Instead it felt like they went to the Dollar Store to pick up items and shopped the clearance section of a bookstore.

While I wasn't overly impressed with this months box, I thought it was good.
