They also have a lot of celebrity Fancy boxes – and I currently subscribe to all of them! (Check out all my Fancy Box reviews). Each box comes with cards detailing the items in the box. And here’s a picture of the actual items: The Box: Fancy BoxThe Cost: $39 plus shippingThe Products: Some of the most fancied products from TheFancy.com (you can specify what categories you are interested in). Milo Micro-Suction Smartphone Stand - Value $18Menu Decanting Pourer - Value $13I was disappointed to see this Milo Smartphone Stand in my Fancy box this month – I got the exact same item in my May Verbal Fancy Box. I definitely don’t need two of these so I’ll be gifting the spare to a friend. I wish Fancy didn’t allow for you to get duplicate items if you sign up for multiple subscriptions! F@#K The Time Watch by TKO – Value $95My bad luck continues with this box – the watch arrived broken. I’ll email Fancy about this… MIZU Fancy Stainless Steel Water Bottle – Value $18I like the finish on this water bottle – plus it’s dishwasher safe! Most bottles like this tend to be handwash only, so I’m very happy with this item.Verdict: This wasn’t my best Fancy box – with a duplicate item and a broken item (that I’m sure Fancy will resolve), this box wasn’t as much fun to open as it usually is for me. I still like the bottle and I’m sure I’ll use the wine decanter, so it’s not a total loss! I paid $30 plus shipping for this box (I subscribed to the first box and locked in the lower rate), and received over $140 worth of product (assuming they send me a new watch!) What did you get in your May Fancy box?
