Kawaii Box Review and Giveaway

My best friend Melissa got me a 3 month subscription to Kawaii Box back in February. It was such a great gift idea because I kept getting presents well after my birthday passed. (Who wouldn't love that?) As someone living with Pulmonary Hypertension some days, weeks and months are more challenging than others. Having a little present arrive at random has certainly helped brighten some of my more challenging days.

In an earlier post I wrote about how subscription boxes are a great gift for someone living with a chronic illness. It also makes a great gift to give yourself. Now you have the chance to get your very own Kawaii Box!

Kawaii Box was kind enough to send me their May 2016 box to review. Kawaii Box also wants to send one of their boxes to one my readers, so please be sure to check the bottom of the post for giveaway details!

What is Kawaii Box?

Kawaii Box is a monthly subscription box. Each box contains about 10-12 handpicked kawaii items from Japan and Korea. Kawaii Box often includes a mix of Japanese candy, accessories and stationary.

How Much Is Kawaii Box?
Kawaii Box is $19.80 USD a one month subscription. It also includes free shipping world wide!

Kawaii Box May 2016 Review

Above is a picture of the outside of the Kawaii Box. Even the shipping box is very 'kawaii' (a Japanese word for cute.)

Here is glimpse of what is inside the May 2016 Kawaii Box. Everything arrived in perfect condition, and each box comes with a 'thank you' card that describes each item in the box. Items are wrapped in tissue paper covered in hearts. The box also includes details about how you can take a picture of your box for the chance to win another Kawaii Box!

The May box included the following stationary items:
- Lucky Star Origami Papers: the back includes small pictures how to create star shaped origami with the papers.
- Puffy Dessert Stickers
- Hello Kitty Pencil Sharpener
- Animal Icon Stamp Set
- Pastel Bear Pen: after having received several Kawaii Boxes, I can attest to how much I love the pens they include in their boxes. They are perfect for writing letters and doodling. (The ink comes out very smooth!)

I have several pen pals and the stationary items in the Kawaii Box are always great for creating personalized letters and mail.

For snacks, the box included:
- Anapanman Corn Rings
- Kasaugai Chibi Vege Remune Candy
The above picture also includes heart shaped silicon bracelets that were also featured in the May box.

The fun accessories included in the Kawaii Box for May 2016 are:
- Cute Animal Socks
- Kawaii Girl Coin Purse
- Kitty Doughnut Squishy: My favorite item! It resembles Hello Kitty and is perfect to squish if you feeling nervous or anxious....or you can squish it just for fun too!

The last item included in the box is this Fluffy Pom Pom Key-chain. I tried to take a picture that would should off the shape and puffiness of the pom pom.

Kawaii Box has been one of my favorite subscription boxes. The stationary items are perfect for anyone who has pen pals, or likes enjoys being creative. The snacks are always very fun as well. Some of the previous Kawaii Boxes I received included interactive snacks that you make, which is really cool. It makes for a fun activity with a friend or by yourself.

As mentioned before, the Kawaii Box ships for free anywhere in the world which is a really good deal for a subscription box. It can take several weeks to receive an item because the box ships directly from Singapore. I have contacted their customer care about some of my boxes because some took longer than receive than others, and their staff are very helpful and friendly.
