The Six Box – A Military Spouse Subscription Box

A friend of mine heard that The Six Box was looking for bloggers to review their first ever subscription box and I jumped at the opportunity!

The Six Box is a monthly care package created by military spouses for military spouses. He/She is usually the glue the holds the household together at all times, so Megan + Alana (the creators of The Six Box) wanted to find a way for loved ones to support the military spouse in their life. They call it a ‘reverse care package’, a box that can be sent to the person holding it all together on the home front, while the service member is away.

“I’ve got your six” means I’ve got your back in military lingo, so this is the perfect care package that family, friends, deployed spouses or even another military spouse can send. If someone near and dear to you is having a hard time while their significant other is deployed or off on training, who needs a little “treat yo’ self” treat, definitely get them a Six Box!! You will lift their spirit instantly!

Here is the August 2016 ‘The Six Box’ unboxing:

“The August box was inspired by our love of summer and our desire to help military spouses make the most of each and every moment, even those spent waiting for that precious call or text during a deployment”. The Box includes six special gifts to help the military spouse beautify, indulge, style, inspire, and reflect.

The August 2016 box contains:

BEAUTIFY – Evian | Mineral Water Spray
BEAUTIFY – Supergoop | Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil SPF 50
INDULGING – Boom Chicka Pop | Sweet & Salty Kettle Korn
STYLING – Happy Tatts | Metallic Chevron Temporary Tattoos
INSPIRING – Exclusively from The Six Box | Summertime Lyrics Print

This handmade journal is absolutely amazing! Seriously, (read the letter in the picture below ) how amazing is that letter from The Six Box Team! It brought the biggest smile to my face! The journal is full of fun weekly prompts, here are some of my fave pages.

This subscription box was definitely THE best I have received! It felt so personal and special. I loved everything in the box, especially because I feel like I will use it all. I already ate the kettle corn (duh!) and it was delish. The Mineral Water Spray is perfect for humid Okinawa weather and of course i’ll use the sunscreen oil for my next beach outing. The chevron temporary tattoos and summer print are adorable, and I seriously can’t wait to fill out the journal!

The Six Box is the perfect way to send some love and support to the military spouse in your life. The one that is constantly left behind while their spouse is away, who’s always taking care of everyone and barely has any time for herself, who’s alone in a new city, state or country, and in need of a smile!

So, what do you think? Would you send this kickass box to a military spouse?

  • This box is amazing! My mother- and sister-in-law run a non-profit for military families in their region and I’m sending this post to them. They’d love to share this with the veterans they know who may be preparing to leave behind their loved ones at home.

    • Yay, share away!!! I agree, the box is perfect, and definitely something that was missing for family, friends, service members and other military spouses to be able to send their loved ones as a gift of support as they go through the crappy separation!!
