    MSQC advent box; Jenny’s favorite things

    I decided to suspend judgement on the box until all 25 days have been opened and share each day here. I’m determined to get as much fun out of this as possible. I love surprises!


    day one: box of bandaids and a rotary cutter blade. Funny!

    Sounds like a fun box! Cute band-aids, fun scissors too.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Looks like you are off to a great start of some fun things for your Advent Box!

    I am guessing this is something that you pay for the whole thing, and it comes complete and ready for you to open daily.

    Maybe tomorrow, you will show us what it looks like before you unopen ... and then the big reveal!
    Or show us Day #7, and we can start guessing what it might be!

    Have fun with your Box!!

    Yes, it was a pre-order thing back in October then it came mid November. I love your idea of posting the packages before I open them.... I have a confession though. I have already opened a few days ahead. I LOVE surprises but patience is not my virtue. I tell you this to explain why we will have to wait for me to post a wrapped gift. (I guess I can post a future one) LOL. I've re-enlisted my husbands help hiding the box from me so I don't open anything else in a weak moment.

    Pamela, it sounds like you got a nice box. I wish I had bought it now.
    I got one from another company and it was a huge disappointment!

    Thank you! I was more curious about the general presentation of each of the days.
    Fun to see your unopened (ahem!!!) present for tmro!

    As to the different items ... wonder if everyone gets the same items, just that they get wrapped and labelled differently? Will be interesting to see how that plays out!

    So far you have received some really great gifts.
    It would have been fun to send an advent box to a friend as well.

    Wait, so ALL the little gifties come in ONE big box, all individually wrapped?! Yeah, I'd never be able to just *wait* until the next day!

    It's fun watching this thread, glad you're sharing!
