The Box: POPSUGAR Neiman Marcus Holiday Box
The Cost: $250
The Products: The box will include an assortment of undisclosed products from eight prestigious brands. The total value will be over $650.
This box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Clare V. Foldover Leather Clutch – Value $220
A few readers had mentioned that this Clare V. clutches are high-quality, and now that I have one in my hands I can agree! This is really well-made and the leather is top notch too. I even like the denim lining:
My only issue with this item is a personal one – I just don’t use clutches that often at all.
Monica Rich Kosann Cream Enamel Frame – Value $100
This frame was came in a box that makes it good for gifting.
I wasn’t too excited about this item when I first saw the spoilers (we just don’t really use picture frames), but my husband wanted to frame a photo of his grandfather today – so it was perfect timing.
Missoni Home by Apothia Candle – Value $88
I am a lover of Missoni prints from afar (AKA I can only afford anything from their line when Target does a collaboration), so I was happy about this candle being included in the box.
I got the Mediterraneo scent – and I like it!
This is the one item in the box my husband and both love!
Lancer The Method, Nourish – Value $125
I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m intrigued. (If you’ve tried this brand and recommend it let me know!)
Chantecaille Supreme Cils Mascara – Value $52
Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss – Value $33
Well, I had to try this mascara immediately – I needed to know what made it cost more than $50! I was expecting to be WOWed- but it doesn’t stand out to me as special, and I wasn’t a fan of the brush either – it didn’t seem to do a good job of separating lashes. It’s still pretty good, and I’ll use it, but I won’t be buying more.
I’ve tried this lip gloss before thanks to subscription boxes, and it’s good too. I think in general Chantecaille is a luxe beauty brand that doesn’t seem worth the extra dollars to me.
Mariebelle Aztec Hot Chocolate Tin – Value $26
This is going to make a wonderful holiday gift!
Swing Design Mia Glass Storage Box – Value $40
This is one of my favorite items in the box. It’s a beautiful piece for vanities/night stands/etc.
(I put a quarter in there show scale).
Verdict: I’ve been thinking about what made this Holiday box different than the 2013 box for me – and I figured it out. Both boxes have high-value luxe items, but the 2013 box had more items I actually might have splurged on and purchased for myself. (The throw, plates, the tray). With this box, there are high-quality items that I just wouldn’t have bought myself (clutch, frame). But while I wouldn’t have spent $88 on a candle, I love it and it’s sitting pretty on our coffee table right now!
I’m thinking if I think of the perfect person to gift this clutch to, the value of the box will be worth it for me. Did you get the box yet? What did you think of it?
