Holiday Gift Guide- Freely Subscription Box!

*Disclosure: I received this box to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Like many people, I have a bit of a thing for monthly subscriptions boxes. I've actually bought subscriptions to a few different types of boxes for my kids for Christmas. They are the gifts that keep on giving! I love it! This month I was introduced to a subscription box that I hadn't heard of before, called Freely. In case you're new to this service as well, here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

In a world of endless products and choices for women that focus solely on appearance, Freely is taking a holistic approach by promoting spiritual, mental, and physical health. Each month, Freely boxes will be meaningful and on-trend, meeting women at the intersection of real life and their purpose. The Freely box program launched nationwide June 2015 at the Dolby Theater as a title sponsor of GodChicks, the first Christian event ever held in the iconic Hollywood theater. Freely has since collaborated with celebrity partners including Candace Cameron Bure and Michelle Williams.
My box arrived a few days ago, and I was really excited to open it. Every month has a different theme and this box was curated by Duck Dynasty's Korie and Sadie Robinson. I've never watched the show, so don't know much about these two, but was pleased with their picks!

I thought the box contained a nice assortment of items. My favorite was the magnet pictured on the lower left hand side of the photo that says "Being perfect isn't as important as being real." Great reminder for women! I also liked the little journal with the cover "being kind makes you feel happy." I have to hide that from Vivian, as she tends to run off with all my journals. I'd never tried a This Bar Saves Lives bar before, but stuck it in my purse for when I was out and about. It only took me a day to get to it, and it was SO yummy! And a great cause too, because with every bar sold, the company donates food to a child in need.

My box also came with great little scripture cards, a necklace and a copy of Strong and Kind, by Korie Robertson. I haven't read the whole book yet, but what I have read I enjoyed. Strength, kindness and love are characteristics that I really want to encourage in my kids, so I look forward to reading her ideas.

Another thing that I really like about the Freely box is that $5 from every subscription price, every month, goes to the A21 Campaign, which fights human trafficking! All together, this was a fun box to receive and I really liked the items inside.

The deadline has passed to get the December box, but you can still buy a subscription for upcoming months, which will give your gift recipient something to look forward to! Visit the Freely website for more details.
