An Afternoon with Thoughtfully Gift Boxes!

(Editor’s Note: Thoughtfully is a fantastic gift box mail service that I love. What’s a girl to do when she is invited to their BBQ party at their Irvine headquarters but, alas, is out of town? I send my right hand gal, Melanie! Read on to discover what Melanie learned about the service, and her pretty cool box she got! xo)

Who doesn’t like a box of goodies in the mail? I certainly know I do (which is why I order way too many subscription boxes). Last week, I was lucky enough to visit the headquarters of Thoughtfully, a service that offers curated gift sets just perfect for gifting, and I was in gift box heaven.

Through it’s gift sets Thoughtfully aims to bring people together and create wonderful memories they can share. The designers travel all over searching out fun, unique items and from them create unique gift boxes for all occasions.

Many of the boxes are food and drink related and offer fun packages for your favorite foodie. Since it’s summer they have a plethora of BBQ gifts that are sure to please.

I was lucky enough to take a box home and, as I don’t really grill, I chose the Outdoor Pour Over Coffee Maker Gift Set.

Now, I’m a coffee fiend. I’ve tried to quit it but I just can’t so this set is right up my alley. It comes with an enamel mug, a wooden pour over filter coffee block, coffee filters, a canister of the good stuff and some fun alphabet magnets. As I don’t have any camping plans in the near future I decided to crack open the set at home and try it out.

I generally make pour over coffee but I had never before seen a wooden block maker. Turns out it works pretty well and soon I had a piping hot cup of java.

I had a bit of fun with the alphabet letters, too.

If I received a Thoughtfully gift set in the mail I would be delighted. In fact, if anybody’s interested I’ve got my eye on The Tea Lab.
