The Sassy Box is a monthly personalized gift and stationery subscription box. Every month you will receive 4-6 gifts and paper products, personalized to current trends and seasons. If you love personalized products, monograms, and hand-written notes, you’d love this box. They also offer special occasion boxes for things like weddings, new home gifts, baby showers, etc. in their store.

This is their debut box! Every box comes with a card describing that month’s theme (and details of each item on the back). October’s theme is “Bloom where you are planted.” They want this to serve as an inspiration to thrive in all of life’s situations and circumstances.
Lunchbox Notes (Set of 15)
Initial Thank You Notes (Set of 6)
I remember my mom always writing me a note on my napkin for lunch at school, so I feel pretty sentimental towards these lunchbox notes! They’re also great for packed lunches for your spouse, to add to gifts, to leave in random places, etc.
Thank you notes are always something I could use more of, but I just don’t know if I would actually send someone a note with my own initial on it.
Candy Corn (Bonus Sweet Treat)
Burst of Blooms Wildflower Seed Mix
A pack of flower seeds is a really great inclusion in this box for the theme – I just wish it weren’t heading into winter so I could actually use them!
Personalized Note Pad
“Bloom Where You Are Planted” 5×7 Print
Be YOU Tiful Charm/Keychain
I always post things like prints and photos on my walls at home, so I’m happy getting another print. I also think this keypad is cute, and I think I’ll gift the keychain to my little sister-in-law!
UPDATED Verdict: The Sassy Box is a really cute subscription – the colors and packaging are all vibrant and well-done. The theme is really sweet this month; I like the message behind it, but maybe the flowers and “blooming” aspect would have been more appropriate for a spring box? I feel like that’s just me being nit-picky, though. The value, however, does seem a little off to me – including shipping, a monthly box costs $37.50 – I know experience and personalization and everything can have its own value, but for that cost I would hope for more value from the items in the box. I know that this is their first box, so we’ll see how their future boxes turn out.
