Christmas Came Early -- Unboxing our First Babbleboxx

Sharing an unboxing from brands that we have never used before, which would make fun Christmas gift ideas! This post is sponsored by, and as always, all opinions mentioned are our own.

Christmas will be here before we know it, and with a handful of presents already wrapped and stacked under our tree, when I got this pr package from Babbleboxx that I got to unbox it actually kind of felt like Christmas morning had come early! 

A few weeks ago, the team at Babbleboxx reached out to us to see if we would be interested in trying out some products that they have rounded up that would all make it onto someone's wish list. They invited us to share what we received in our box, look into these brands (all of which we have never heard of before or used), as well as mention what we like about what we received and what we believe would make the best gifts in the box (and what we would like to keep for ourselves). 

I will admit, I had never heard of Babbleboxx before they had contacted us. If you are unfamiliar, Babbleboxx is a company that works directly with brands to distribute certain products to influencers and bloggers for the purpose of getting a review or getting feedback on the items. Basically, it is a pr package specifically sent out to bloggers, filled with different items from different companies in their boxes. The box theme for this month was Wish List, which is perfect considering my birthday and Christmas are only a few weeks away!

I want to start with Adam's favorite item from our box, and then I will talk about my favorite! 

Out of all of the items sent in our Wish List Babbleboxx, Adam's favorite product is the Trekz Air headphones from AfterShokz. Lately, he has been commuting to work on his bike as a way to get more exercise, and he has been struggling to find the right headphones that are both lightweight and also comfortable to wear. These open-ear headphones from AfterShokz are "bud-free," so he does not have the issue of the earbuds not fitting correctly because one of his ears is missing its tragus. 

I enjoyed almost all of the items in our box, but my absolute favorite item that I am the most excited about is the necklace I got from Charles & Colvard. 

If you have been saving up and keeping some extra cash to really splurge on someone special in your life this year, I am confident that this stunning necklace will sparkle and make someone's day incredibly special! This Signature Halo Moissanite Necklace 0.91CTW in 14K White Gold from Charles & Colvard is absolutely stunning and I literally gasped out loud when I opened the box! This piece already fits so well into my jewelry collection, as most of my jewelry, including my wedding ring, is white gold. 

This necklace is my first piece of Moissanite jewelry. Admittedly, I was not too familiar with this gem until we received the Babbleboxx in the mail. We started researching into Moissanite a bit, and we were intrigued to learn that this white gemstone is ethically sourced and an environmentally responsible gem that is not mined (so no earth is displaced or water is contaminated in the process of creating the stone). If you are interested in seeing more Moissanite jewelry or if you are considering gifting jewelry this holiday season, you can keep an eye out on the Charles & Colvard social media (like their Instagram or their Facebook page) for seasonal savings and deals.

Adam and I agree that the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones and the Charles & Colvard Moissanite necklace are the most impactful gifts we can recommend out of the items that we got in our Babbleboxx, but we also enjoyed most of the other items and can definitely see how they would make for great gifts for friends and co-workers. 

Candles are a great gift idea for everyone on your list, including those people who you are not entirely sure exactly what they want, such as a co-worker, teacher, or acquaintance. More often than not, everyone is always excited to receive a candle! We received this wellness candle from Chesapeake Bay Candle company in our 'Wish List' Babbleboxx. 

This "stillness + purity" rose water, scented soy wax candle from Chesapeake Bay Candle is made with wellness essentials oils of cedar leaf, orange, mandarin, petitgrain, geranium, gurjun balsam, and rose absolute. When we lit our candle, it had a clean and earthy fragrance to it and we thought it would be great for our bathroom.  I usually like to order most of our candles on Amazon, which surprised me when I saw that Chesapeake Bay Candles are available on Amazon and I had not known that until now. These soy wax candles infused with essential oils are all designed and poured here in the United States, and there are a variety of candle fragrances as well as candle sizes and even reed diffusers available online on their Amazon page. 

We also received a pair of fashion crew socks, as well as a cocktail shaker and glasses set in our Babbleboxx. 

This copper cocktail shaker from ALDI is one of the more unique shakers we have seen, as it has an outer container that slides over a layer that reveals common recipes for different cocktails. ALDI has not only high-quality food items but also has a variety of holiday gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list. We believe this cocktail shaker and matching drinkware duo would make a fun idea for a stocking stuffer or a Secret Santa gift. This specific cocktail shaker ($9.99) and drinkware (a set of 2 for $8.99) will be available for a limited time at select ALDI stores starting December 19, 2018.

Bold and unique, these sheer women's crew socks from Fun Socks would be a great stocking stuffer for the fashionista who thinks she has everything. These neon red and white, Fun x Fiorucci Women’s Sheer Crew Socks are limited edition and available on If you or someone you are shopping for this holiday season is a serious sock fanatic, you can take advantage of the special discount that they have going on below:
