christmas every month

You guys. I’m about to share something incredibly embarrassing with you all.

I love mail. Ok, that isn’t the embarrassing part, but you need to understand that in order to get the context of the story I’m about to tell you.

When I was 7, I was walking to a friends house and stole mail out of mailbox. When I say I love mail, it’s kinda an understatement. Apparently I didn’t even care who’s it was. About 6 months went by and my dad confronted me after my friend’s mom found the mail under her bed. I had ditched it that day when I realized how a phone bill was just not that fun. My dad marched me up to that house and I had to apologize with tears down my face. I never stole mail again, and it’s a good thing because it’s a felony.

Moving on! I am now 20 years wiser but my love of mail is still just as strong! There is something about getting something in the mail. A sweet surprise of love and excitement.

Today I’m sharing some my favorite things to get in the mail and some I hope to see on my doorstep soon, it’s like Christmas every month! Get ready to get excited!


I think I have mentioned Blue Apron before but I just think it’s the coolest idea out there since sliced bread.

This company selects only the best fresh ingredients from around your area, comes up with healthy unique recipes and delivers both to your doorstep every week. You pay person and per meal and it’s cheaper than just eating out and a lot more fun. Plus, if you like the recipe, you have it forever. If you are looking to eat better, learn to cook or just spend some time at home, this is such a good way to do it. You can also opt out of weeks if you are going to be gone or busy. They also have a meal plan for the vegetarians out there and will be adding more diet-restricted plans for allergies soon.


Holy Moly ladies! If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix yet, I just have to tell you, you have been missing out. For those of you who love to shop and get mail, you will love this box.

Stitch Fix is like your own personal stylist who sends you 5 pieces of clothing and jewelry every month based on a style quiz you take when you sign up. You can choose to keep all the pieces or send them all back for free. You can even hold your Fix if you don’t want to “go shopping” that month.

I am constantly getting compliments on the clothes and jewelry that I receive from Stitch Fix. From dresses, sweaters, bracelets and necklaces, Stitch Fix just gets me. Just make sure you know what you are getting into. It is addicting.


Since going Gluten free, you can read more on that here and see my favorite gluten free products, I have had a lot of fun discovering new snacks and brands that cater solely to a gluten free lifestyle. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. I often just stand in the aisle looking like a dear lost in head lights.  So when I discovered GFreely, I got extremely excited.

GFreely sends a box full of snacks and food items every month along with recipes and tips on how to live gluten free. Takes a lot of the guess work out of it and I’m so game for this! And who doesn’t love receiving food in the mail?


I love paper and all things design. Yes, yes I do. Love it all. So do the people at Olive Box!

Olive Box sends a monthly box of paperie, books, stationery, temporary tattoos and more and are tailored to the time of year. A perfect way to send a gift or just spoil yourself. This box is mail that encourages your to send snail mail. Be still my heart!

Is there something you are receiving monthly? Please do share!

    I love getting mail, too! And definitely the fun kind (surprises & sweet letters) over the bills and grown-up stuff. I currently only subscribe to Umba Box, but I would love to try out Olive Box or Stitch Fix. Both sound amazing!

    Ohhh I love mail. I have only heard of Stitchfix and I have been wanting to try it out, but for some reason I haven’t, yet.

    The Olive Box is something I would geek out about. I’m such a nerd for office supplies/stationary things.

    And the Blue Apron sounds awesome!
