The ladies behind Color Me Sane subscription box invited me to experience one of their coloring + pampering retreat boxes and of course I was all about that.
What’s not to love?
My box included multiple coloring sheets – they were all individual and not in bound book form. I sort of prefer coloring books because they tend to be similar in style from page to page. But I can get down with the style variety as well, so it’s all good.
Also inside my box: a pair of socks (I genuine have a sock fixation and will always love a new pair of sox especially fun printed ones), some sharpies, a bath bomb, some confetti, a DIY color-in postcard, a zippered pencil pouch and some lip balm. Such a fun bunch of treats.
You can see now why it is called “color me sane” yeah? *wink*
The first thing I went for of course were the coloring sheets. This is why I love adult coloring: it’s so super accessible, easy and can be picked up any time. No advanced planning is needed!
And that is the goal: a little coloring + relaxation mini retreat in a box! Mission accomplished.
The pages I received were varied in image and style – some were much more intricate and others had broader negative spaces. Depending on my mood I can enjoy either of those styles! Truly the image is negligible for me – I just enjoy the act of coloring.
This box really taps in to the simple and often overlooked pleasures of staying in and enjoying a night at home! You can take a bath, then cozy up for some coloring. Probably also would include wine. I can tell that the items in the box were chosen with care and are high quality. It’s a nice treat to have all these items pre-packaged and ready for you!
I can really see this box being a fun surprise gift for a friend who has recently moved, switched jobs or experienced something else mildly stressful and could use a pick me up. I’m always on the hunt for cute, unique things to send to friends that I know they wouldn’t buy for themselves … of course I don’t have as hard a time buying myself treats so that’s another story.
