The Moments Box Launch

We are launching our first box filled with our own line of hand-poured candles, themed labels plus lifestyle gifts from new partners. Celebrate life's special moments with The Moments Box!
June 14, 2021

A while back our team wanted to dive deeper into our gift subscriptions. 

We wanted to step outside our comfort zone and create our own line of natural candles to be thoughtfully designed, high quality and hand-poured. 

This marks our first line of our own candles. This is huge for Vellabox!

We began to seek out a way to celebrate life’s special moments. 

Whether it be popping the question to your bridesmaids or maid-of-honor, celebrating a birthday, moving to a new city, preparing for a new baby or just brightening someone’s day, the list goes on and on.

So the question is, which moment will you be gifting?

Vellabox community: We present to you, The Moments Box

The Moments Box is a thoughtfully curated & fully customizable gift box. We want to help you celebrate life’s special moments with a gift box made just for your special someone. 

The box contains a candle (occasion and scent selected by you) along with as many gifts as you would like to include as well as an optional personalized note. There is no subscription necessary to purchase The Moments Box.

It’s a simple, yet striking process to create the box. Let me walk you through it!

Select the Occasion

First, the gift donor selects the desired occasion to curate their gift box. Each occasion aligns with a matching label:

  • Birthday- Make a wish
  • Congratulations- Cheers to you
  • Housewarming- Welcome home
  • Baby shower- Oh baby
  • Anniversary- You make my heart melt
  • Bridesmaid- Will you be my bridesmaid
  • Maid of Honor- Will you be my maid of honor
  • Good luck- And so the adventure begins
  • Thinking of you- thinking of you
  • Thank You- Thank you for everything that you do
  • Love- I love you
  • Just Because- You light up my life

Select the Candle Scent

Next, select one of six candle options made by Vellabox to be hand-poured in a reusable glass jar with the themed label.

Head to The Moments Box page for the candle scent notes.

Now pair your candle with the perfect gifts. You can select as many gifts as you like from mojito sugar cubes, skincare products, in-house candle accessories, coffee beans, reusable products and everything in between. There’s something for everyone to enjoy!

These gift brands don’t just make exquisite products, they also have incredible eco-friendly and community-driven missions that you can read here (insert moments box page link). Here are three (three!!) inside peaks!

Behind The Moments Box Brand Partners

Sundream Coffee

Sundream husband & wife duo, Casey and Brooke Courter, spread good vibes and help protect the planet through something as simple as a cup of joe! The Glow Coffee Blend won’t only wake up, but glow up with this yummy blend. Plus coffee bags are 60% compostable/renewable.

1% for the Planet Member

Sundream contributes at least 1% of annual sales to environmental causes. And for every 1 bag of coffee, 1 pound of trash is pulled from our oceans and beaches. Coffee for you and a better ocean for all! How cool is that?

Whispering Willow

Whispering Willow’s products are a must for self-care and mindfulness. The gentle aromas of rose bath salts along with rich honey & ground oats soap help you enter your oasis and ease daily stress or worries.

The brand reduces the number of pesticides and herbicides used throughout the world with natural & certified organic ingredients (plus they use natural clays and botanicals for color). They also donate 10% of profits to charity to strengthen their community and to help those in need. 

milk + honey

A hyperclean line of bath, body, home and skincare products gives you a luxurious spa experience no matter where you are. Try their bath bombs and waffle-weave headband. The No. 35 bomb is a delectable blend of blood orange, ginger and lemongrass–it truly is the bomb.

With the help of the finest team of estheticians, massage therapists, and stylists, their highest quality ingredients mean products aren’t diluted with fillers. Nourishing base ingredients (vitamin E-rich oils and aloe vera leaf juice) are used that are safe to use daily and not irritating to the skin.

Finishing Touches to The Moments Box

After you’ve curated your one-of-a-kind gift box, light it up with a gift message to seal the personal touch! It’s an optional step for the box.

Once you have customized your gift box, let us know when to ship the box and we handle the rest. 

My Box Picks

At the office, we curated a box to show you how to mix and match the candle labels and gifts! I love this box–it’s so versatile. Here’s why + what’s in the box!

This box is centered around the celebration occasion + “cheers to you” label. I selected the Golden Hour candle. With scent notes of grapefruit, tangerine, ginger, it smells vibrant, citrus and fresh.

Cheers to You Label

You’re popping a new bottle of bubbly champagne to celebrate them or a special event.

Perhaps, you’re trying to find the perfect and unique wedding gift for your friend who has everything.

Maybe your cousin just graduated college and accepted their first post-grad position in a new city.

Or your friend just got promoted to a new leadership position. You’re celebrating and acknowledging their success. Those accomplished and those yet to come.

Along with this candle, we added a combination of products to look and feel radiant. The Woolzies Heavenly Body Mist gives both a youthful glow and luxurious floral scent with lavender and chamomile essential oils to brighten skin.

Pro tip: Add Georgette Klinger’s Coconut Cleansing Milk to the box. Apply to wet skin and let the coconut oil & cucumber extract do their magic to wash away makeup, dirt and buildup. Leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Mojito Sugar Cubes

After all that your gift recipient has accomplished, give them well-deserved unwind time.

Gift a little at-home mojito action with the Teaspressa Mojito Sugar Cubes. As a mojito fan, I’m dying to try these.

Drop these with some rum or lemonade in the Lillian Rose Inc Stemless Champagne Glass, and they’ll be sipping in style.

Mrs. Champagne Glass

This glass comes in a couple of variations, and the one here is perfect for celebrating your friend’s transition from Miss to Mrs!

Last on my box pick list are the Vellabox Wick Trimmer and Tea with Tae Bombay Chai Tea.

Did you know that trimming your candle wick before burning makes for a cleaner burn? Aka less smoke and residue!

Tea with Tae is a woman-owned tea company and the tea is sourced from the finest farms in the world. Their Bombay Chai Tea is great for getting the morning started or afternoon energy boost.

For our achieving, on-the-go friends, the loose leaf tea is packaged in portable, sustainable and biodegradable pyramid sachets.

That’s all for my box pick!

Again, we are extremely excited and thankful to share this box with all of you and the special people in your life. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Now go!! Curate your gift box before they’re all gone!

Tell with your family + friends to share their box.
