POPSUGAR must have box.

i love the idea of subscription boxes. the thought of getting surprise goodies delivered to your door every month is exciting. there are so many products out there, i sometimes have no idea what to try or where to find them...and you may never know a company existed until its product is given to you. in addition, subscription boxes make wonderful gifts.

i was lucky to receive POPSUGAR's Must Have box for november which exceeded my expectations of a monthly box. the contents of this box were full-sized and themed for the holiday season.


the box was packed nicely and filled to the brim with goods.


what's in the box?

1) Michael Stars Folk Art Wrap (buy)
2) Illume "Nice" Candle (on sale! buy)
3) Land's End Single Canvas Wine Tote (buy)
4) Maison de Monaco Strawberry and Blackberry Cream Preserves
5) The Soap & Paper Factory Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap
6) Absolute! Nail Polish Remover Pads (buy)
7) Barefruit Crunchy Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips (buy)
8) CanvasPop $30 gift card

you can find more information on each product here.

i tore this open right away. i really wanted to like these caramel apple crisps because i love fruit snacks, and the caramel + apples sounded yummy and festive for the holidays. while i liked the crunch and chewiness (when i came across a caramel bit), it tasted like, eek, hate to say this, but...cardboard? great idea for a flavor combination, not so great execution. i'd love to try other flavors.

i was most excited about this wrap. it's huge and soft and warm, and i appreciated its neutral colors. it's this wrap that made november's must have box totally worth it.

i have yet to try the rest of the products, but i love the subtle pine scent of the soap and the 'nice' sweet smell of the candle. 

i look forward to trying these nail polish remover pads, because the bottle + cotton balls can get messy. and this canvaspop gift card will be put to good use; my niece has been taking tons of pictures at the beach so that we can print them out and use them as artwork to decorate the beach house.

  4. I love the idea of subscription boxes but when I used to get a beauty one I found I barely used any items at all. A food one would be another story...!

  13. Thanks for the review, I'm super torn on what kind of subscription box to order and this seems like it has a nice mix of stuff. The chips sound good in theory, but i can totally see how they would be like cardboard...ick. Hopefully your future food-in-boxes endeavors will be better!
