aster_market_august_box_review_art_subscription_box
There is a new subscription box on the block, and it does not disappoint! Aster Market prides itself on small batch made products that inspire a positive outlook on life. The finds are so contagious, you’ll have a hard time not sharing them with friends! Aster Market loves to give back too! Twenty-five percent of the net proceeds are sent to a non-profit of your choice from their selected charities.

Our August box included a generously sized Parris Chic Boutique 100% cotton tote bag printed with “enjoy the little things” in black script. This will be great for the farmer’s market or impromptu retail therapy purchases. The tote would also make a unique and appreciated gift wrap for a very special gift. The second item was two beautifully letter pressed cards by Ruff House Art that are perfect to brighten someone’s day. One says “I love you more than coffee…most days” and the other “eat cake for breakfast”. The cards are very high quality and hand pressed using a vintage hand operated letterpress. Last but not least a full-size Produce Candles soy candle that is in the perfect summer/fall transition scent, peach. Poured in a beautiful mason jar, this is one candle that will keep your house smelling fresh! I especially loved this candle because it made the whole box smell amazing when opening. Any box that has a great smelling candle, candy or sweet smelling gourmet food, goes on my top box list!

Aster Market is a monthly subscription box with prices starting at $39.95. Use code LAUNCH10 for 10% off your order.

Tea for Two with Mr. and Mrs. Tea Infusers

mr_and_mrs_tea_review

Afternoon tea just got a whole lot cuter! We are pleased to bring you an adorable gift for the avid tea drinking couple! The tea infusers, 1 pink and 1 gray are made of pure food grade silicon rubber that can withstand extreme temperatures and heat evenly. They also have a matte finish that ensures a firm grip. The infusers are dishwasher and microwave safe.

mrmrstea_thumbSimply twist the infuser at the waist and fill the bottom with loose leaf tea (large leaf works best). Replace the top and attach the arms to the outside of your cup. Fill your cup with hot water and the Mr. and Mrs. Tea infuser will make tea in minutes with no added taste or odor. Grab the top of the infuser to remove without burning your hands. After the infuser has cooled, twist again to easily remove the tea and discard. Mr. and Mrs. Tea is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

We love how easy the infusers are to use, to clean and are eco-friendly. What a great conversation piece for your next cup of tea with friends.

Gift Mr. and Mrs. Tea to your favorite couple, spring weddings or your son and daughter. The infuser set comes packaged in a giftable box but can also be split up and gifted separately. The set retails for under $15 on Amazon.com with free Prime Shipping and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Spring Break Vacation Essentials: 1.25oz Silicone Travel Bottles by Dot and Dot

1.25oz_travel_bottles_review_DotDot_travel_essentials

1.25oz_travel_bottles_review_DotDot_travel_essentials_2Traveling over Spring Break? Good travel accessories are essential to a stress free vacation. Check out the set of TSA approved, BPA free, 1.25 travel bottles by Dot & Dot. We recently received the above set to put to the test…

Each soft, squishy bottle has a silicone suction cup on the back that works great for temporarily attaching the bottles to a hotel or guest bathroom. With a little practice you can use the bottle while it’s suctioned to the shower wall as well. Having the suction cup molded into the bottle also helps keep your soap and lotions sanitary, organized and away from the shower head that can cause travel bottles to become water logged.

The travel bottles are easy to use and fill. The top is a clear, screw-top lid that easily removes to reveal a wide mouth opening, big enough to transfer your family size soaps and lotions. To use the travel bottles, simply squeeze the bottle and the soap will easily release through the cap’s membrane. The cap helps seal and prevent leaks –we haven’t seen any yet!

The sets come in different color combinations so you can easily organize your toiletries. A tab on the lid can also be used as well as sticky labels, etc. If you are in the market to upgrade your travel gear, give these bottles a chance. They are well made and have lasted us a lot longer than their dollar bin travel-size counterparts. The set is packaged in a clear travel bag, perfect for TSA inspections and easy packing when traveling.
