I can’t think of a better gift for a girl than positive messaging. This Strong Selfie Box is AMAZING. Here’s why.
As the mother of a ten year old girl, positive messaging is definitely top of mind for me right now. I see the world she is growing up in and I have so many concerns for her but probably one of the biggest is knowing how important it will be for her to have a strong and healthy love of self as she moves through these next few years. Kids have so many pressures on them right now and my message to her is to be a light. A light to herself and to others. Kids can’t ever get enough of this type of messaging and that’s why I love gift ideas like Strong Self(ie). We recently partnered with this subscription box so that we could check it out for ourselves and share our findings with you.
No surprise that this brand was founded by two moms who have girls themselves. They get it! And, after reviewing the box, I’m completely impressed with what they’ve done here!
Here’s a photo of everything that was in our box:
I love how well these pics were curated. As you will in the video below, the box is very well packaged and it’s the perfect size. My daughter received: A jacked, gummy bears, skin care products, a head band and a really nice (really nice!) planner/journal. Also included in the box were some darling positive message cards that can be kept or passed on to friends. They even included a set of these cards for parents, so cool!
About the products inside.
One thing that I love about the entire box is the quality. Everything was very well made and you could tell, that they worked hard to source quality products. The jacket that my daughter received is DARLING!! I can’t even explain how cute it it… I want one! That alone, was probably worth the price of this box, it’s so unique and so adorable. Very on-trend and she’s over the moon about it. We also loved the skin care line, which couldn’t have been more perfect for a girl her age. The Lovely Honey Gummy Bears candy was an excellent choice because while it’s a candy (what little girl doesn’t love that!?) it’s made with honey instead of sugar, and it’s SO good. Lovely brand is definitely a brand we will be purchasing again so I was happy to have discovered it in this box. The headband is adorable as well, and I might even be stealing that one, such a great gift item for a girl her age. The planner is amazing. It’s everything that makes a ten year old girl giddy: colorful, full of quotes and stickers and motivational sayings. WOW. Just wow. Truly impressed with this box.
In addition to positive and useful product girls want, the boxes also offer positive letters to both the girls and their parents as well as kindness cards to pay it forward beyond the box.
One word: AMAZING! What a neat gift to send a young girl, and I love that they offer two different boxes for two very hard to buy for age groups.
STRONG Self(ie) is a quarterly subscription box offering trendy, positive and purposeful items and messages to teen girls between the ages of 8-17. Each item hand selected for the boxes falls under one of the four corners of Self(ie) strength: Beaut(ie), Funn(ie), Smart(ie) or Health(ie). The boxes retail for $59.95 but feature at least$100 worth of product! They just launched their Spring box which is available through June and features the below items in their Bloom box (for girls ages 8-12) and Burst (for girls ages 13-17)
SAVE ON YOUR FIRST BOX!
And what I love even more is that the price of the box ($59.95) is almost 1/2 off the value of the box. You can see the order options on the Strong Self(ie) website where you will also find other positive and uplifting gift ideas for young girls!
Use coupon code: BOX10 to get $10 off your first box (+ free shipping) when you subscribe. And remember, you can cancel at anytime, but something tells me this is the kind of subscription box that you just want to get getting/giving. It’s SO good!
Isn’t that so neat!? People ask me from time to time why I never give bad reviews. I do. You just don’t see them. When something comes through our door (and LOTS of things do) and I don’t love it, I don’t share it. It’s that simple. When I started this blog almost 10 years ago, I made a choice to keep it a happy place. A positive place. I don’t want to give any energy or love to things that don’t deserve it. It’s a waste of time: mine and yours. SO … when you see me gush over something, it’s because I truly find it gush worthy! You have my word.
