Love a good scented candle? So does every other blogger out there, myself included! I’ve always got one burning, and have frequently found myself frustrated at the cost and the lack of scent associated with many a name-brand candle. Thankfully, there’s a small company in the North of England who make all-vegan ‘proper smelling’ candles in cute little tins, which are big enough to really enjoy the scent and warrant the cost, but small enough to be able to switch scents every so often!

So here’s a frustrating fact. I photographed my TVK box in early December, right when I opened it. Life went crazy shortly afterwards, and I never got around to writing up the post. Today, I decided to finally make it a priority, and discovered that I had lost every single photo! How annoying! So now you’ll get a post without a single picture. How boring. I’m so terribly sorry. If you do want to have a little look at the items, you can see them on The VeganKind’s website.
First up was a scented candle from Harper’s Bizarre, which I believe was formulated especially for the box! This all-vegan candle brand is something I’ve been eyeing up from a distance for quite some time, but I could never get myself to take the plunge to buy some of their items. However, now that I’ve sampled them, I will definitely be investing. The candles have the strongest fragrance of any scented candle I’ve ever tried, and they last for ages!
Second was a packet of Gingerbread Toppers from Wholeplus. I don’t have whole lot to say about these, apart from the fact that I’ve really been enjoying them on my morning porridge. They make a very welcome change!
Next were some Olive Branch biscuits. I had the orange flavour, and, if I’m honest, these weren’t my favourite. If I had to stick to a gluten-free diet, I think they would rank pretty highly on my list, but since I’m fortunate enough to be able to tolerate gluten, I wasn’t overwhelmed.
I’m a huge tea-fan, and have a lot of boxes of tea bags in my kitchen. I was very happy to see that some tea samples had once again been included! The box contained two Teatonics samples, one for the morning and one for the evening. I haven’t tried them yet, but I think I’ll try the evening one tonight before bed!
Lastly, the box contained a tube of Green People toothpaste. We seem to be constantly out of toothpaste, so this was a great thing to get! Also, I’m slowly but surely steering our household toward natural cleaning products and toiletries, so I really like trying out different brands to see which ones suit us the best.
Overall, the box was worth £14.49. As usual, I really liked the range of products and I can’t wait for my next box!
Did your receive the December TVK box? What did you think?
