The Mindful Teacher is a subscription box for teachers who love stationery, wellbeing and have a love of all things eco friendly.
Subscription boxes have become something of a phenomena over recent years. Everything from make up and stationery to beer and cheese can be delivered to your door as a monthly treat. These boxes are curated for you and you receive whatever the creator selects every months for a set price.
I suppose they have replaced the magazine subscriptions we used to treat ourselves to as a little indulgence every month.
I have been quite sceptical of subscription boxes in the past. I felt that probably for every item you were sent that you loved there would more than likely be four or five that you either don’t like or wouldn’t have any use for. (I know, negative Nellie!).
Then I was sent the November subscription box from The Mindful Teacher.
I had forgotten that it was coming and when it landed on my doormat I was filled with excitement. I am a total stationery addict and the combination of stationery and wellbeing could not be more perfect for me.
It was beautifully packaged in cardboard with paper tape, and inside was just delightful.
This was the contents of my box: two pens, cute post-its, a postcard, notecard, wax seal, sheet of stickers, self care booklet, bath bombs, biscuits, tea and coffee (I hope I haven’t forgotten anything!). The contents were mostly created by little independent companies, which I was really impressed with, we need to support our independents more than ever right now. More than that though they were also environmentally conscious and even the bath bombs were cruelty free and vegan.
I was so impressed with the contents, they were great quality and just perfect for what we need as teachers. Practical items to use and enjoy, lovely things to send to colleagues and friends and a little bit of self indulgence, all for just £15!
In addition to supporting small businesses and trying to find eco-friendly contents The Mindful Teacher are partnered with Ecologi. For every subscription box they sell they plant a tree, they have so far planted 146 in 4 months! You can even watch their forest growing.
The Mindful Teacher is a small team of full time teachers, at various stages of their teaching careers who are passionate about teacher wellbeing and stationery. They just love creating these boxes and that really shows.
With Christmas less than two months away, we are all beginning to think about what we can get for our friends and loved ones, and many of us want to support small businesses.
The Mindful Teacher are doing a special one off Christmas box for just £25. This is a limited edition box and will be full of the usual mindful magic and will include a special card for you to write so you can gift it to your teacher bestie, or maybe you will just treat yourself after a difficult term. If you would like to order this box, you can find the details here.
If you would like to subscribe and receive one of these beautiful boxes every month, perhaps ask someone to gift you a subscription for Christmas, you can get 20% off your first box by using my special discount code: CC01.
Please do support these wonderful teachers who are creating something really magical, and I believe, really needed at the moment.
I am always completely honest about reviewing products. I won’t review anything I haven’t experienced and loved myself. I was sent my box for free but I am not recieving any commission or financial gift for recommending these boxes. I was genuinely impressed by the quality of the box and the contents.
