Let’s see what’s in the October 2017 Glitter Crunch Box!
Everything was shipped in a gray box with the Glitter Crunch Box logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the items included in October’s premiere Glitter Crunch Box. — This is Box #1, “Here Comes Santa Claus”.
October’s ornament featured good ol’ St. Nick perched atop a snow-covered chimney next to a “lit up” Christmas tree. According to the hang tag, this piece was crafted by Polish artisans using a process that takes 7 days to complete. The ornament is incredibly detailed and the coloring is gorgeous — so bright and Christmas-y! I like this so much, that I’m even willing to look past the fine glitter coating much of the surface. 😉 (That’s saying a lot from an admitted glitter-phobe!)
This simple brass stand gives you a perfect way to display your new Joy to the World Collectibles ornament. Its simple, understated design allows the ornament to shine as the main focal point. This would be great for displaying on a mantle or just about any place in your home that needs a little dose of holiday magic.
Cookies! This tall glass jar contains all of the dry ingredients needed for making 20 delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It includes rolled oats, corn flakes, brown sugar, chocolate chips, coconut, and other all natural ingredients. All you’ll need to add is butter, an egg, and vanilla extract to whip up these sweet & festive treats.
“30 Inches of Gnome” Wine Topper
This whimsical wine bottle topper is in the form of a traditional gnome/Santa with a flowing white beard and posable red hat, complete with a mini jingle bell on the end. Just slip him over a bottle of bubbly for an easy (and cute!) hostess gift.
In the age of digital everything, I typically keep my holiday gift lists and other holiday-related planning on my phone. That said, I was hit with a wave of nostalgia when I saw this paper planner and remembered how my mom would always keep a little notebook for jotting down what she bought everyone for Christmas. Somehow I managed never to sneak a peek, but was always curious about what was inside. Now that I have kids of my own, I’m thinking it’s time to continue the “Christmas notebook” tradition and this holiday planner is absolutely perfect for my list-making needs. 🙂
This sweet little snowman pendant was tucked into the gnome wine topper’s hat as a special surprise. 🙂 Just like the Joy to the World Collectibles ornaments, this dainty pendant is handcrafted in Poland by skilled artisans. It comes with a 24-inch Venetian brass chain to add a bit of Christmas cheer to any outfit.
The final item was a handmade peppermint flavored twist lollipop from Hammond’s Candies. These lollipops are made in small batches and twisted entirely by hand. So pretty!
As someone who absolutely LOVES anything Christmas-related, I thoroughly enjoyed the first offering from Glitter Crunch Box. The collectible ornament was beautifully crafted and the additional items put me right into the Christmas spirit. In October. 😉 I wasn’t able to find retail prices for all of the products, but considering how much the Joy to the World ornaments sell for on their website, I’m pretty certain that the overall value was quite impressive. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 10% on your first box (of a month-to-month plan) with coupon code “ROSEBUDS10“!
