One of my lifelong friends has thrown me a surprise party, not once, not twice, but three times over the years. (You would think I would have wised up after party #2, but she’s a great actress.) Nevertheless, I always love a good surprise. And, according to science, I am not alone.
Tania Luna and Leeann Renninger, authors of the book Surprise: Embrace the Unpredictable and Engineer the Unexpected, explain what happens to the human brain when surprised. “Surprise is… one of the seven basic emotions that influences our lives. What makes it special, though, is that, unlike the others like happiness and sadness, surprise enhances our other emotions so they become more memorable.”
And, one of the best surprises I’ve enjoyed recently is a Surprise Box from Apollo Box!
I’ve long been a fan of Apollo Box’s unique jewelry, gadgets and funky gifts, from dorm décor, to luxe bath essentials. There are literally hundreds of choices. But, I’d never received a Surprise Box.
The Jewelry Surprise Box is such a fun gift idea. And, with high school and college graduations just around the corner, this is the perfect time to try one out.
The process is simple. You pick one of four different subscription plans and one of two types of Surprise Boxes (general or jewelry). There’s a mystery box for every budget including:
- $30/month for product(s) up to $50 value
- $50/month for product(s) up to $80 value
- $30/quarter for product(s) up to $50 value
- $50/quarter for product(s) up to $80 value
Then, you fill out a quick survey where you share your preferences. Apollo Box curates a Surprise Box for you based on your specific wants and needs, which is delivered right to your doorstep. It’s like Christmas!
My personal box included two pieces I absolutely love, plus an amazing free gift.
The Solar System Bracelet is a piece I’d actually already seen and saved on Pinterest a few months ago. I love the unique design, with gemstone planets and goldtone star charms. This piece adds some visual punch when paired with solid colored gemstone power bracelets. And, the whimsy of it makes me smile.
I also received the lovely floral bangle which is perfect for spring and summer. Its sweet design looks beautiful with floaty sundresses, straw hats and sandals. Although I personally wear it with both work and weekend wear, it also would make a much appreciated bridesmaid gift for warm weather or destination weddings!
Finally, my free gift was the biggest surprise of all. The travel jewelry box is a smart way to stay organized and keep my favorite pieces safe. This box only looks tiny (It’s a little like the Tardis for any Dr. Who fans.) Inside, it’s got space enough to house quite a collection of earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. And, it will ensure that your necklaces won’t get tangled or earrings lost while on holiday.
