When Erin Condren announced that their Fall Surprise Box had launched, I knew I didn’t want to miss out on this one. Our obsession at Frugal & Thriving for everything EC is real, and we are not ashamed! This box was no exception. It arrived in its pretty purple pumpkin packaging over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to open it. The fall surprise box has since sold out, but check out what was inside…when the winter one rolls around, you’ll want to be the first in line to grab yours. See the fall box below!
Okay, first of all, how gorgeous is this packaging?! The box is reusable AND reversible. I would buy the surprise box every season just for the packaging alone. With a sweet little message, “the secret ingredient is love,” I knew my box was not only put together with care but would also contain charming and heart-warming goodies.
This season’s box was all about prepping for the holidays and celebrating the magic of special times with loved ones. The info card gives you an overview of everything that’s in the box, along with a little reminder of what’s important – creating new traditions, cherishing the little moments, and staying organized through it all.
These organizational accessories are just darling! A holiday planner will help you keep track of gift ideas, parties and get-togethers, meal planning, and even help you with budgeting. The seasonal stickers will dress up your daily to-do lists, and the interchangeable cover is perfect if you already own an EC planner and want a different vibe for the fall season. The stand-up holder comes with a weekly planner notebook and can be refilled when you run through the one that’s included. Two metallic markers will beautify your notetaking and the pen holder clip will keep your writing utensil handy.
The bonus? A cupcake gifting set for all of the bakers out there! Two cupcake holder boxes, a dozen fun cupcake holders, and an adorable tea towel that again reminds us that “the secret ingredient is love” are perfect for those who love making sweet treats, but these also make great gifts. Since I’m not much of a wiz in the kitchen, I gifted mine to a neighbor and she was ecstatic. There was only one stipulation – she has to share some cupcakes with me!!
These seasonal surprise boxes are so fun, plus they’re a steal! Typically valued at $80+, they cost only half the price. And as you can see above, the stuff you get inside is GOOD!! Definitely worth it. Also, the excitement and anticipation of seeing what you get is like opening a present on Christmas morning. I certainly felt like a little kid again when I opened mine.
