Here is what I received in the Summer Parcel Post box:

Veggie and Herb Note Cards 5 pack – $12.95

Perfect for the farmer’s market shopping foodie, this pack of cards are printed with a variety of veggies and herbs. Each card is printed on bright white, 3 1/2 x 5 and is blank on the inside for your personal note for any occasions. Comes with kraft envelopes.

These cards are so cute and I know just the person to write to with them. My dad loves to garden and lives in Wisconsin. I don’t get to see my family often and I know he would love receiving a handwritten card from me.

Lavender Floral Sachet – $4.95

These vintage style lavender sachets are perfect favors for weddings, bridal or baby showers. Filled with fragrant dried lavender flower petals, they are great for closets, drawers, nooks and crannies and bathrooms. Great as a party favor or small gift for a friend. The sachet is about 2 3/4 x 4 with pull ties.

As soon as I opened the box, I could smell this. The aroma is divine! I might even keep mine in my nightstand to help me sleep.

Lavender Letterpress Stationery – $2.99

These stationery cards are incredibly beautiful to the eye and touch. Lavender sprigs are printed with lavender ink on thick cotton. Cards measure 5.5 x 4.25 and come with kraft envelopes.

I was shocked to see how thick these are. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m not sure I’ve ever written on cotton before, but the quality is amazing.

Letterpress Thank You on Thick Cotton Lettra Card – $2.80

Make an impression by saying thank you in your own words using thick Lettra cotton paper for a stunning and beautiful thank you card. These flat paneled cards are perfect for writing your message on the front and come neatly packaged with matching envelopes.

Idea Chic Letterpress Thank You

Not your typical thank you card, anyone would be pleased to receive such a note. I’m already imagining my favorite gel pen gliding over the thick cotton card.

Fresh Produce Stationery – $2.59

Foodies don’t send any old greeting card so this pack of note cards are perfect to have on hand. Say happy birthday, thank you, thinking of you and handwritten recipes with this fresh produce greeting card on kraft paper. Each card is 5.5 x 4.25 and comes with an ivory envelope.

I love that these cards are blank on the inside. It means you can use it for any occasion. I especially appreciate the design of this card. It really looks like it is drawn on the card. The names of the produce in the cursive font adds a little something extra.

Rose Cloth Bag – $4.95

I could not find this exact item on the website, but they have other cute ones here. My favorite is the Santa bag! This fabric bag is printed with a rose using the letterpress! Each bag is composed of muslin fabric and is about 5 x 7 in size with a drawstring pull tie.

This cloth bag could be a very unique way to wrap a gift!

Bakers Twine on Wooden Spool – $3.95

Baker’s twine has multiple uses for the crafty, packaging and gift wrapping. This spool contains 15 feet of twine. You might have noticed the box had twine wrapped around it.

The total value of this box is $35.18. Idea Chic claims that the retail value of each box will be at least $35, so this box definitely meets the standard.

I am so impressed by the quality of each product and the curation of this box. I had the chance to meet David and Julie, the owners and crafters of Idea Chic, and they are truly proud of their products. I will share my visit in another post, so look for that soon!

What did you think of the Summer box? If you missed it, there is still time to sign up for the Fall Parcel Post box!
