Review: Cool Beans Box Explores the Texas Hill Country

Howdy y’all! Welcome to my first post of 2017! 🎉

I am so excited to kick-off the year with a review of Cool Beans Box. This gift box company is inspired by all things Texas, supports artisans and small-business owners, and best of all, features women-owned shops. Now, that is something I can support! 💁

Cool Beans Box’s seasonal gift box, the Winter Box, explores the Texas Hill Country. It is also part of the Market Club Collection and it is filled with so many goodies from Texas! 

When I received my box, I could not wait to open it and explore all the items. Something really special about Cool Beans Box is their philosophy to help people discover something to eat, wear, use, and share. All of the items in the box can be used in different aspects of anyone’s life from beauty to fashion to food and more. 

While exploring each of the products, I was so impressed by the quality. You can really tell each product was handmade with intention and care. As a Texan, I really appreciate this and adore what the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Each item taught me a little more about Texas and the great businesses and people who create them.

Some of my favorite items in the Winter Box (in no particular order) include the baseball tee, the cinnamon spiced pecans, the organic lavender sugar scrub, the Texas wood ornament… well basically everything! 

The baseball tee – Texas wine themed is so incredibly soft and comfy! Plus, who doesn’t love a glass of Texas wine? I’ll take a pinot noir, please.

The cinnamon spiced pecans are the perfect Texas snack for any sweet tooth. I keep reaching for my bag of pecans because they are so addictive!

The organic lavender sugar scrub is by far the best body scrub I have tried in a long time. I have been on the hunt for the perfect body scrub especially because I get my legs waxed and it is so important to exfoliate between sessions.

The Texas bluebonnet tea towel is the most precious thing ever. Bluebonnets are treasured in Texas and I plan to treasure this towel.

The Texas wood ornament is the perfect addition to any Christmas tree. If you were born or raised in Texas, then you need this ornament! TEX-ify your tree, please!

And lastly, I’m eager to get into my kitchen to use the Sola Stella extra virgin olive oil and garlic herb dip, and the whiskey vanilla extract. Extra virgin olive oil is the perfect start to cooking a tasty meal, the garlic herb dip will be perfect as a snack or appetizer, and the whiskey vanilla extract – oh my goodness! – I can just smell a batch of whiskey vanilla cupcakes in the near future.

Whether it is a gift for yourself or for a special Texan, the Cool Beans Box – Winter Box is a must-have. This seasonal box is available until February 10, 2017, so place your order today! Each box retails for $68 or you can subscribe for all four seasons for $265. 

I can not wait to see what products will be featured next and I know you do not want to miss out. 👍
