Do you love surprises? I know I do, especially when its a gift!
Hammock Pack is a new monthly subscription service that features a theme and gifts of artisan products. These products include food, accessories, housewares, beauty and more!
I have to begin by saying that the customer service at Hammock Pack is excellent! I got my Hammock pack very quickly. It only took about four days. I was able to reach someone on twitter very easily as well with questions.
I got some wonderful products in my Hammock Pack. The June Theme was "Day at the Beach".
Let's take a peek inside, shall we?
Butter + Love Jam Cookies. These cookies came in two awesome flavors and I got two of each cookie. The flavors were Marrionberry Rosemary Sea Salt & Strawberry Balsamic Marjoram. I admit, I was a little leery of trying them because the savory flavors did not initially appeal to me. After one bite, I was persuaded that these were a little bite of heaven! Each cookie had a savory, buttery flavor and the sweetness of the jam inside complemented them perfectly. Butter + Love is located in Brooklyn, New York and they pride themselves on making inventive and quality baked goods. These cookies retail for $5.00.
Another great item I received was a head wrap made my Etsy shop owner Melissa from Grace and Lace Co. This handmade quality item is perfect for someone like me who tries to practice Christian head covering. I was struggling to find a wrap that would be light enough for the summer and this is perfect! I was very excited to see it in my Hammock Pack. I love that no two are the same and it fits comfortably. This wrap retails for $10.00.
I also was given Lollypops from This Charming Candy. I got the Fruit Basket set, which features four flavors; Guava Colada, Triple Berry, Watermelon Basil and Pineapple Heaven. I loved the quality! They were uniquely flavored and delicious. I can honestly say that I didn't much like the watermelon basil flavor. It tasted too strange for me. It had a funny aftertaste. This Charming Candy is located in the state of Washington, and they craft all thier goods in The Wandering Cafe. The Lollypops from This Charming Candy are dairy and gluten free. The Fruit Basket Set retails for $13.50.
To get myself smelling like a day at the beach, I was sent Sea Kelp Ginger Lime Coconut Milk Soap from Theme Fragrance. I loved the fresh, summery scent, but was honestly a tad disappointed in it's sud action. I like my soaps to sud up well, and this did not. Theme Fragrance also makes other products including oils, candles and Lip balms. I was a tad disappointed when I went to their site and could not find out about the soap as they must not sell it any longer or they are currently not featuring it on their site.
I love lip balm and my Hammock Pack came with some included. I was very pleased to receive Coconut Vanilla Lip Balm from DressGreen. DressGreen makes an array of products including body scrubs, shampoo bars, bath soap and perfume. The products are hand made and include high quality essential oils. The Coconut Vanilla Lip Balm glided on smooth and stayed on for quite a long time. The lip balm retails for $6.50.
My favorite product by far was a handmade soy candle in Hawaiian Breeze that I got from Motor City Creations. As you probably guessed, they are located in Michigan and all the ingredients used in their candles are 100% vegan. The scent was noticeable but not overpowering and the soy melted evenly. This candle retails for $4.00-$10.00. I was unsure what size my candle was since it did not say on the product.
I highly recommend Hammock Pack as a gift or even a one time mailing. Hammock Pack is only $25.00 a month and you clearly get more value than that in it. It was so fun to be surprised!
I have to mention, as well, that I loved the way my Hammock Pack was wrapped and packaged. I felt like I was being treated to a little bit of luxury! I really appreciated that the theme flowed well with the products included but also color coordinated well!
