This box has everything you need to care for yourself this winter, including products from a few of our favorite brands, new and old. Not to mention, any of these products make a perfect gift for anyone on your holiday list.

  • WAY OF WILL Elevate Essential Oil Set: Sweet Orange Oil & Eucalyptus Oil – The Sweet Orange Oil is for energizing and the Eucalyptus Oil is for revitalizing to keep you feeling like your best self.

We survey our members year-round about trends and brands they are excited about, products they want to see in the box and more,” said Kitchens. “Our number one most requested item for winter was a cozy blanket, and we are delivering on that with one of our winter box hero items, the Mark & Graham colorblock throw. This is the perfect blanket that looks great as a living room accent and can be taken on the go for all your holiday travels.”

In addition to the excitement surrounding the products inside the box each season, FabFitFun continually engages a new philanthropic partner, and this season the featured charity is The Kindness Factory, a non-profit organization that promotes and encourages acts of kindness in the community whether its something simple as complimenting a friend, or providing a meal to someone in need. When founder Kath Koschel lost her partner to suicide, she found it was the kindness of those around her that helped her through the journey towards recovery. Understanding the power of kindness, she launched The Kindness Factory to encourage people to show kindness to themselves and others. Their goal is to reach 1 million acts of kindness by 2020. FabFitFun members will be able to donate to the kindness Factory in $1 and $5 increments during the Add-Ons portion of sales.
