Let’s have a closer look at the Something Wilder Special Edition box……

Something Wilder

“Growing up the daughter of notorious treasure hunter and absentee father Duke Wilder left Lily without much patience for the profession…or much money in the bank. But Lily is nothing if not resourceful, and now uses Duke’s coveted hand-drawn maps to guide tourists on fake treasure hunts through the red rock canyons of Utah. It pays the bills but doesn’t leave enough to fulfill her dream of buying back the beloved ranch her father sold years ago, and definitely not enough to deal with the sight of the man she once loved walking back into her life with a motley crew of friends ready to hit the trails. Frankly, Lily would like to take him out into the wilderness—and leave him there.

Leo Grady knew mirages were a thing in the desert, but they’d barely left civilization when the silhouette of his greatest regret comes into focus in the flickering light of the campfire. Ready to leave the past behind him, Leo wants nothing more than to reconnect with his first and only love. Unfortunately, Lily Wilder is all business, drawing a clear line in the sand: it’s never going to happen.

But when the trip goes horribly and hilariously wrong, the group wonders if maybe the legend of the hidden treasure wasn’t a gimmick after all. There’s a chance to right the wrongs—of Duke’s past and their own—but only if Leo and Lily can confront their history and work together. Alone under the stars in the isolated and dangerous mazes of the Canyonlands, Leo and Lily must decide whether they’ll risk their lives and hearts on the adventure of a lifetime.”

Page #1: Something else best served warm and soft.

First up a box of melt-in-your mouth shortbread cookies with a milk chocolate centre. How amazing do these sound?!

Page #30: Like Nicole this item is pretty but can also draw blood.

Here we have a super cute pin-back button (I always forget the actual name) that goes perfectly with the book. Cute on your book bag…..or a denim jacket maybe?

Page #346: An essential camping activity.

I feel like every time I go to look for a deck of cards I can’t find one (in our house that is) so these are much appreciated. And SO darn cute!!!

Page #86: Something that will keep you warm on a chilly night.

Here we have Lily’s Spiced Hot Cocoa from Soul Chocolate. It includes nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne and vanilla. So it will have a little kick to it.

Page #280: Shaped similar to a protein bar but tastes better.

Oh my goodness… has been forever since I enjoyed a good piece of fudge, and this one look amazing! It’s cotton candy flavor and totally makes me think of the fair.

Page #170: Phrase – I’m going to wash your mouth out with……

Satsuma used to be my favourite scent in high school so this bar of soap is bringing back memories. It smells SO darn good, and it looks like a creamsicle… fun!

Page #234: Handy item – you never know when you will need it.

I am always happy to receive cleansing wipes because they are just a great item to have on hand. Perfect for everyday use, your travel bag, camping……you name it.

Page #333: You are likely to find a pot of gold at the end of me.

I saved the best for last…….how amazing is this rainbow mug! I am a sucker for coffee mugs and was absolutely thrilled to see this one in the box. It’s a great size, I love the unique shape and the rainbow design is super fun. Love, love, love!

Oh…..and there was a bag of gold tucked inside 🙂

Special Edition Something Wilder Box – Final Thoughts

I’m pretty sure this is only the second Special Edition box from Lit Love Book Box (with the first being the Galentine’s Box) and I must say…..I am beyond impressed. The book choice is great and the selection of wrapped gifts made it SO much fun to unbox. The coffee mug is obviously my favourite item but overall it’s safe to say I am happy with everything. We received some fun treats, a yummy beverage, bath and body items and the cutest deck of cards. I can safely say that this is at the top of my list when it comes to Canadian subscription boxes……they are doing an amazing job!
