March Treat Box

We featured such a beautiful selection of products in our March Treatbox all set to get you ready for the glorious spring months! I don't know about you but we loved the snippet of sunshine we were treated to recently. Spring, you can most definitely get your skates on and arrive with full gusto! Please and thank you, can we ditch the 100  deniers yet?!?

Here's the low-down on the beauty of the March treatbox which you can still order:

Nails Inc

Nothing speaks spring quite like the glorious scent of cotton candy, all the sugary, heady aromas of the seaside and NailsInc have captured this deliciousness in their pastel-blue shade 'Harrington Square'.

NailsInc have the most amazing range of colours - I mean, have you seen their Mermaid Nail Polish Duo? It's all kinds of wonderful! We can't wait to amp-up the glam and try these beauts. The Champagne Shine Duo also caught our eye! Who wouldn't want glittery mermaid nails to go with their spring wardrobe?!

Let's Talk Tea! Tea Huggers

Here at Treatbox HQ, it's a well-known fact that we like a cuppa! Well, that's a bit of an understatement - we LOVE a cuppa.....! And tea doesn't get much better than Tea Huggers in our opinion and the 'Goodnight' went down an absolute treat. Naturally caffeine-free with fruity pieces, lemon balm, rooibos and a hint of lavender, this wonderful blend will give you a great big sleepy hug.....Tea, Love & Happiness everyone! 

 Coffee Is Not Just For Breakfast.....

Coffee plus scrub = the softest skin. Fact. We went a little bit crazy for the Optiat 'Mouthwatering Mandarin' and 'Vanilla Velvet' scrubs - we really can't put into words how divine they smell! Made from a blend of ground Arabica beans with notes of mandarin and vanilla, these relaxing mixes are the perfect treat to unwind after a busy day. Simply scrub into damp skin in circles, leave for a few minutes and hey presto! Silky-smooth skin is most definitely the order of the day!

"One person's trash is another's treasure" - The ethos behind Optiat is simple with the main focus being that of sustainability creating high-quality, effective skincare products from a by-product that is usually discarded. Soft skin and great for the environment - what a great combo!

Scents and Sensibility: Charismatic Cat

Along with a cuppa of the finest, we also love to take a load off with our favourite scent filling our space and the 'Marshmallow' by Charismatic Cat is by far the most mouth-watering (and beautifully-packaged) candle we have had the pleasure of trying.

With flavours such as Banana Nut Bread and Rhubarb and Custard, these guys have every sensory base covered! We can't wait to give them a whirl! If you need us we'll be the ones in our Treatbox eye mask, relaxing in the wonderful aroma of marshmallow.

After you've scrubbed, soaked, bathed and unwound with the perfect cuppa, there's only one thing for it! All you beautiful dreamers, this is our very own sleep mask designed by our fair hands. It's elegant, dreamy and will be sure to induce the best of sleeps! 

Alongside our 'Now It's Me Time' do not disturb sign, this combination of treats will not only make you sparkle, it will get you prepped and primed for the sunshine that is just around the corner (fingers crossed). This is the ultimate pampering pack, sure to make you or a loved on feel amazing. And for the cherry on the cake, our March Treatbox also includes the prettiest bag to keep all of your goodies in. 

Versatile and oh-so-cute, this dotty, spangly bag is perfect to keep all of your favourite make-up in and it fits into your handbag, amazing! If you can't live with this amazingness in your life, head to our website and order your March Treatbox.

5 Things Mums Do For Us & How To Thank Them

It's almost that time of year again when we get reminded to spoil our Mums, buy flowers and chocolates, and generally put ourselves out for a bit. It can sometimes be met with cynicism over 'another' national holiday; but it's important to remember what matters. Mum!

Mums are there from the day we're born, looking after us every second of the day and ensuring we're healthy and happy as can be. Fast forward a few years and we're scrambling for ways to thank her in one day. It can feel a little overwhelming!

(Grab this pretty personalised card here for just £1.50)

Today we thought we'd share 5 lovely things Mums do for us, AND how you can thank them simply for being them! We've got you sorted :)

1. Make us feel loved all year round

Whether we're happy, sad, moody, confused, sometimes a little stupid or selfish; Mums love us throughout it all. Who else would put up with us eh?! None of us probably thank our Mum or make her feel as loved as we should all the time; but you can give her little reminders that you appreciate her every single day. Make her feel loved all year round too, with this cute ceramic trinket dish to give your Mum a little smile each day, or draw and frame your own illustration that she can hang maybe? Like a grown up version of those old fridge artwork's you did for her!

2. Support us

Nobody quite like our Mums supports us through each trial and tribulation, each new adventure, start up business, or plan for the future; even when we're so unsure of ourselves. Mum's can be guaranteed to be the backbone of your support system, and cheer you on when you need it most. Whether it's a late night phone call before a big meeting, or a little card in the post to let you know she's thinking of you, Mum's always there. Show how grateful you are by encouraging her in her own life! An inspiration print, a handwritten note, or even just an email may go a long way.

3. Comfort us when we're ill/heartbroken

She was there when we first had our heart's broken, she was there when we didn't get that job, and she was probably there when we were really ill and couldn't look after ourselves - Thank you Mum! There's nothing quite like that comfort of Mum sorting out the bad days with you, but it's hard to know how to thank her when you can't exactly wait around to repay the favour. Treating her to a huge Mothers Day gift box is a pretty good start though! You can grab one ready made to go (perfect for last minute treats!) or even put together your own special box for Mum.

4. Remind us of what's important

Mum's are the perfect reality check we sometimes need when in the midst of a huge panic over something. It can often feel like the world is ending and that everything is always going wrong for us, even over the littlest of things. She'll cheer you on, sure; but Mum's are also great at reminding you of how lucky, loved and blessed you are in so many ways. It can snap us out of almost anything, and be such a welcome relief when we need it most.

5. Become our biggest fans

One of the sweetest and most genuine things are Mums do for us, is when we aren't even around. Proud Mum's will often spend time telling anyone who will listen how brilliant we are; acting like our own little PR rep behind the scenes! If you've done well in your studies, got a good job, a nice partner, or even if your hair is just looking extra glam lately; you can guarantee Mum will be blabbing away boasting to all her friends about you. You're her pride and joy; and it's really very sweet tbh. How can we live up to this?! Well, the answer is by giving her something she can show off at home, when friends visit. Grab this adorable 'Love you to the moon and back' plaque and pretty bracelet - and you'll give her something else she can show off! Let her wear the bracelet all day long, and display the plaque somewhere proud at home, and she'll have another excuse to brag; she will be telling everyone how wonderful her son/daughter is!

There are so many ways to can spoil Mum this year, both little and big; but whatever you do, make sure she knows how appreciated she is! New mums might also need a little extra love too, as this is probably the hardest time for them, and they don't get many thanks back! Treat a new mum this Mothers Day, and you'll not only be a very well-loved daughter, but a star friend too!

Have a wonderful Mothers Day!

Treatbox Advent Calendar

This beautiful photograph was taken by the talented Sarah Folega.

As we dive into January with festive filled hearts, and eyes still glowing from all those fairy lights everywhere; it's easy to get a little case of the January blues. Most of us are back at work, back to the daily grind, and feel as if Christmas is a far off lovely dream that is basically a million miles away.

But things needn't be so blue! Here at Treatbox, exciting things are in motion already, to make 2018 even better than ever!

If you're a regular fan or subscriber, you may already know that for Christmas 2017 Treatbox launched an amazing 24 day advent calendar, filled to the brim with wonderful goodies for a BARGAIN price! It was the ultimate festive treat, and so may of you loved it, that it SOLD OUT!

Each was filled with incredibly unique items ranging from homeware and jewellery, to beauty products and stationery. There was SO MUCH packed in, ensuring everyone would be thrilled, and really doing whatever possible to make this advent calendar the very best it could be.

And here's the thing; it's coming back bigger and better than ever for 2018! I know it seems a long way off right now, but imagine how great it'll feel come December when you have a gift to your future self, from your past self?! You can book it in full today, pay a deposit, or even pay in small increments if that works better for you (minimum £5 each time). Treatbox want to work around you, to make things as easy as possible!

5 Reasons You Should Book Your 2018 Advent Calendar Now:

1. A massive 160 boxes were sold for the 2017 advent calendar, selling them out completely, AND people were still messaging after asking for more and more. There was a huge demand, so booking yours ensures you won't be let down!

2. The value for money is absolutely INCREDIBLE. With everything that was included in the 2017 calendar, each item would have brought a grand total of £114; and people only paid a grand total of £51.95 for theirs! That value for money is astounding, and competes with some of the biggest brands on the market.

3. Each item is special, made with love, and truly beautiful. Whether it be a set of fairy lights to decorate your work space, festive nail polishes for the beauty addict, or candles perfect for adding that perfect touch to any room; Treatbox makes everything with so much care!

4. Supporting small business is crucial! You might not have really thought about it before, but supporting small business is a BIG DEAL, and you can make a difference! Rather than focusing on the huge, international brands, high five the little guys! Treatbox is a brand that focuses on making every single customer happy, and also works with other small businesses regularly. So by choosing this as your advent calendar for 2018, you really are helping out!

5. Feeling organised makes Christmas so much easier! We all know how crazy things can get around December. Trying to find gifts for difficult people after work hours, fighting with a million bags, queues that seem to last forever... Why not make your life a little easier for 2018? Book your advent calendar now, and you'll have something ticked off and sorted already! When your calendar arrives, you'll feel SO proud of your organised self!

This years calendar is available for the bargain price of £56.95 and will be worth much more too, so it's definitely one to get your mitts on! If you start now, you could even pay £5 a month and you'll hardly notice it then! (Email for this option).

A Treat of a year...

The end of the year is often a time for reflection, and 2017 has had plenty of highs and lows,
but it has definitely been a memorable year.

Now it’s drawing to a close, we thought we’d do a round-up of some of our favourite
Treatbox goodies from the past year…


March’s Treatbox brought us a Cocoa, Shea & Honey bath melt, scrumptious and soothing.
Perfect for a long bath anytime of the year, this was one of our favourites!

April showers bring May flowers, and with May comes a beautiful grey scarf with rose gold
foil feathers. The scarf is ideal for all year round, and works with almost any outfit, making it
one of the most stand-out treats this year.
Featuring one of my favourite quotes: “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land
among the stars”, May’s Treatbox included a gold plated celestial necklaces with a moon
and star charm. I think this is such a lovely message, and is very much in-keeping with the
positive messages, prints and plaques that fill Treatbox subscription boxes month after


Summer had everyone feeling tropical and the cute pineapple pin that arrived in July was the perfect addition to
any summer outfit. Anything with pineapples, flamingos and watermelons gets our vote in
the summer months!

Whatever the time of year, tea and coffee is an essential part of most morning, and this was
very much the theme of the August Treatbox! The daily planner covered in tea and coffee
prints was absolutely lovely, and tea samples were the icing on the cake – perfect for getting
your day started!

Autumn is the most beautiful season, with the leaves changing colour, Instagram grids filling
up with cosy scenes of pumpkins and the knitwear starting to come out of the wardrobe.
September’s Treatbox had a magical, charming theme which included a beautiful crochet
dreamcatcher and an adorable unicorn pin.

October gave us all the autumn feels with an autumnal print, tea lights and the cutest
copper fairy lights which are ideal for making your home cosy all your round –
and are great for getting into the festive season which is right around the corner…

One of the loveliest things about the festive season is curling up with a blanket, a good book
and a mug of hot chocolate and mince pies. With a recipe for mince pies and mulled wine,
hot chocolate powder (complete with marshmallows) and a cute pair of cosy socks,
Treatbox was able to help with all the ingredients you need for the most wonderful time of
the year!

After a year filled with treats, we can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store, and you can get
your 2018 off to the best start by joining Treatbox! Which box was your favourite?

The Gift Of Giving

At this time of year, when we're all obsessing over Christmas trees, panic shopping, and buying chocolate in dangerous amounts; it can be easy to overlook the greatest joy of this time of year. The simple act of gifting something with something that you know they'll love, is simple and beautiful and one to really treasure.

Whether it's reminding your Mum she's still your hero with a personalised treat, or giving a friend a little laugh over a novelty gift; getting someone a present this year doesn't have to be hard work or as worrying as we sometimes make it out to be.

All year round we deal with birthday wishes over Facebook, cards sent too late, being too busy to catch up with old friends, not having enough money for a night out like the old days, looking after kids and not getting a moment to ourselves.

So why not make Christmas the one time of year to truly treasure the special moments we get with our favourite people?

Take the time to help your Mum cook Christmas dinner (or do it for her and let her put her feet up!), tell Dad how great he's looking, or send a card to that friend who lives so far away, telling them how much you miss them.

Behind The Scenes: Meet The Maker Of Treatbox

For those of you who already love subscription boxes; you'll understand that feeling of pure joy when a new box arrives at your door, full of wonder and surprise. But what about the brains behind the box? What about the creator who brings it all to life, packs every box, sends it off into the world full of special care and consideration? We often don't think about that too much.

That's probably due to a lot of subscription boxes being made by huge, rich companies; keen to flog another product and keep you hooked on their brand. But there are some special small biz gems out there, like Treatbox.

Treatbox is a monthly subscription box which features stationery, homeware, accessories, artwork, jewellery and SO much more! Created by the lovely Zoe, determined to spread joy and happiness on the first of every month to every subscriber; Treatbox is in a league of it's own.

Want to know more about the behind the scenes workings? Let's chat to Zoe...
