Memorable Gift Idea: A Bountiful Box

Here’s a pretty unique gift idea that came my way recently. It’s called the Conscious Box, and it’s a fantastic treat for your nearest and dearest.

Dedicated to all things eco, fair-trade and organic, the Conscious Box is filled with lots of yummy and healthful items. The fun part is that it’s a monthly subscription service, and you can choose a 3-month or 6-month program. You can also order a one-time only box. Each month, recipients are treated to a new theme that reflects the season. They also receive a message card introducing the theme along with a daily living card that offers tips on how to live more consciously. Now, who wouldn’t want their loved ones to live happier and healthier lives?

The Autumn Box message is to “Embrace the Vitality” and use this time of year “to reinforce the balance you see in your own daily routine — a vitality rooted in respecting other beings, loving unconditionally, and actively working to improve our world.” The inside contents include a package of organic whole grain wheat pasta, lavender hand and body lotion and bath and shower gel, hand and nail cream, loose tea and more.

You might just want to order the Conscious Box for yourself to help you keep your energy up and feel your best before the big day! For more information, visit
