Artisan Subscription Boxes have always been a favorite of mine to receive. And when it comes to the artisan subscription box category specifically, California Found does it best. I have been reviewing this box for quite some time and have come to appreciate the consistency, quality and attention to detail that goes in to each and every box.

Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the April California Found box….

Just Jan’s Organic Strawberry Spread ($7)

I always look forward to seeing what kind of food items will be included in my California Found boxes. This month we received a wonderful jar of Organic Strawberry Spread. I already have big plans for this spread. I’ve been dying to try toast topped with coconut yogurt, strawberry jam and granola. I’ll let you know how it turns out:)

In Succulent Love DIY Medatative Terrarium ($21.99)

This is such a cute idea. I love a good DIY project. My plant was slightly damaged in the shipping process but I think it will be ok with a little TLC.

Fiddle Fish Soap ($8)

Love, love, love this soap! I could smell it as soon as I opened the box. I received lavender & poppyseed and it smells amazing. I will use it in my guest bathroom. I love having a selection of handmade soaps on hand.

100 Graces Herkimer Diamond Necklace ($42)

This is such a gorgeous necklace and just look at the value! The Herkimer Diamond featured on this necklace is said to be a stone od attunement, energy, creativity and detoxification.

Savannah’s Woodshop 7″ Spread Knife ($15)

I think this just might be my favorite item in the April box. I love handmade, wooden kitchen items. It will be perfect when entertaining and it is the perfect complement to the strawberry spread also included in this month’s box.

Barton Burns Short Cement Succulent Planter ($8)

Lastly we have a cute little planter which pairs perfectly with our succulent DIY project. I’m excited to make my terrarium. It will be the perfect little desk accessory.

California Found Review April 2019 – Final Thoughts

The April California Found box is a wonderful collection of beautiful artisan products. There are a few classic items (jam, soap, necklace) and a couple items I don’t see as often in my boxes (DIY terrarium and planter). My favorite item is definitely the spread knife, with the jam coming in a close second. As far as artisan subscription boxes go, California Found is at the top of my list.
