The Decorative Curious Box
Your items are housed in a beautifully illustrated box measuring 24.5cm (W) x (D) x 9.8cm (H), inspired by our curious boxes. Each box has a box identifier sticker, but don't worry, these can easily be peeled off and won't ruin your box if and when removed. To encourage you to relax and to re-use the box after unpacking, we have included a free pack of coloured pencils for you to decorate your box. Share your creative piece of work with us on social media, and be entered into a monthly draw to win a secret prize.

Looking After Our Environment
Our Curious Boxes packaging is designed in such a way that they can be coloured in with the free pencils, and used as a beautiful storage solution, rather than be thrown away. However, if you do not want to keep it, it is recyclable. Some of the boxes contain 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly and compostable EcoFlo packing peanuts. They can be reused, recycled or dissolved in water. All of the boxes contain brown crinkle paper, envelopes and pencil boxes; all recyclable. We also work with Ecologi to plant a tree for every order placed through the store. Read more about what we're doing in our Environmental Policy.

Please note: This box contains incense and candle items. When burning incense or candles, please use a relevant holder, do not leave burning while unattended and do so in a well-ventilated area. Please also keep it away from your pets and small children, and burn incense near an open window or in a separate room. Animals, especially dogs have a much more sensitive sense of smell than humans, and the scent of aromatherapy products like incense can bother them. In addition, keep any incense out of your pet's reach so they don't accidentally ingest it.
