OwlCrate Limited Edition Winter Wishes Box Review (Unboxed Spoilers) 2020

It’s January, and I’m longing for December again since this box screams wintery holidays to me!

Winter Wishes Limited Edition OwlCrate Packaging

The limited-edition box is a beautiful blue and white theme. Its magical, icy, enchanted winter wonderland vibes was a feast of beautiful to lay my eyes on. Every item in the box was perfectly photogenic.

Here are a couple photos of the packaging in the Winter Wishes box.

What was in the OwlCrate Limited Edition Winter Wishes box?

First comes all the papers, including the photo challenge prompts, the spoiler card, a link to the Spotify Playlist, and a coupon for NaturalAnnie Essentials.

I absolutely love the blue wintery theme! The illustrations on the card are so very are stunning.

Stainless Steel Spoon & Tea

First up, we have a versatile tea or coffee spoon that doubles as a chip bag clip. Then some Wintersong inspired minty, chocolate loose leaf tea from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe.

This blend of tea was created exclusively for this OwlCrate box and has peppermint, decaf Ceylon tea, rooibos tea, natural vanilla flavor, cocoa nibs, natural chocolate mint flavor, peppermint leaves, and candy canes.

Cooling Gel Eye Mask

As someone who works in web development and has a hobby that requires a lot of screen time, I can appreciate this mask. It’s a sight for sore eyes (/me giggle).

It has beautiful hand lettering done by Studio Kyra and features a quote from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue:

 She has counted time in seconds, and in seasons, in cold snaps and in the thaws, in the uprisings and the aftermaths.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue V. E. Schwab

Can we also talk about how cute that mesh bag is with the delicate little gold stars and moons?

Gift bags

Janine Lecour designed these adorable cloth gift bags, and I can’t wait to gift these to someone next year!

They’re well made, sturdy, reusable, and oh so beautiful with those blue and white illustrations of books and snowflakes.

Candle

I want to eat it.

It smells so fracking delicious.

YUM!

This vanilla buttercream scented candle was made by NaturalAnnie Essentials, who took inspiration from Girls Made of Snow and Glass.

I love the jar, and the gold cover will be perfect for storing tiny bits and bobs once the candled has burned.

Ceramic Mug

This cup is the most beautiful blue shade (how many times can I say that in this review)? It’s inspired by Spinning Silver and features a beautiful quote lettered by Lady Chubb Letters that says:

One day the wind would blow & the temperature would drop & in the middle of the night a frost would creep over my threshold.

Winter Wishes Enamel Pin

Icey Designs designed the enamel pin. It is a black, white, and gold half-moon with some roses and a crown to complement the exclusive book cover in the Winter Wishes Box.

It says:

The cover illustration is beautiful; I love the black hardcover with the beautiful gold foiled illustrations. Enough talking look for yourself:
