For $204.66 a year, you get a 1 year subscription to People, a 6 month subscription to gift, and 3 VIP Gift Boxes delivered throughout the year filled with items selected by People editors.It seemed like a great value, so I had to sign up!One thing that surprised me was how similar the packaging is to POPSUGAR Must Have!The card includes a note from People’s Managing Editor Larry Hackett, and then details all the items in the box:So much like POPSUGAR!The Box/ Subscription: People VIP Gift BoxThe Cost: $3.79 an issue ($204.66 for 54 issues in one year)The Products: 3 deluxe gift boxes filled with at least 5 must-have, full-size products hand-selected by PEOPLE editors and delivered to you throughout the year, a 6-month gift subscription in print and digital for anyone you wish, and a 12-month print and digital subscription for you. (Value of over $700)Ships to: the USMake sure to add People VIP Gift Box to your subscription box list or wishlist and check out the Women’s Subscription Box Directory!(I took a lot of pictures since this is my first box from this subscription).Designer Note Cards – Value $5?Washi Tape – Value $5?Neither of these items have any brand identification, so I’m guessing on the value. I like the prints of the cards and the washi tape, so these are great items to have in the office!Animal Print Scarf – Value $20?Again, not sure what the value of this scarf would be since the tag just says “People” – but at least that makes it exclusive to the box! This scarf is a thin material, perfect for layering. I don’t wear animal prints too often, but I think I’m going to give this scarf a try!Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips – Value $24Jamberry Nails Vinyl Nail Wraps – Value $15I’m so excited to try these dissolving whitening strips! They have great reviews on Amazon, and it’s pretty rare to find any whitening product that has great reviews!These Jamberry Nail Wraps are an exclusive design for People VIP subscribers. I’m not sure how I feel about the color, but I like the idea of getting the ombre nail look without any work! I also like that they include enough sizes to work for finger or toe nails!Blue Enamel Bangle – Value $15?Another item I’m not sure how much it would retail for. It’s a well-made bangle, and I like the enamel look, but I can never wear bangles when I’m working – it drives me insane typing, so this one is going in the gift pile!Verdict: I’m really happy I subscribed – I love getting magazines, so getting People every week was an instant win, and I’ll use just about everything in this box, so that’s great too! Based on my estimates, I’d say this box is worth approximately $85.I hope the next box includes more branded items – I can’t wait to see what’s in the People VIP Gift Box – 2nd edition!What do you think of the People VIP Gift Box subscription?Written by Liz CadmanLiz is the founder of My Subscription Addiction.
