Hamptons Lane Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Dec 2014 Candles

Custom Wood Serving Board with Knife Slot – Value $20?

Big Dipper Wax Works 100% Beeswax Taper Candles – Value $9.50

This serving board was made exclusively for Hamptons Lane subscribers, so I’m estimating the value. I think the knife slot design is smart and this would work well for a smaller loaf of bread or maybe a few cheeses.

I love Big Dipper Wax Works candles! They are made with all natural 100% beeswax, which has that subtle scent that I love. These are definitely an good item for an entertaining box! (Plus I feel like taper candles in subscription boxes are pretty rare).

Hamptons Lane Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Dec 2014 Jam

Bonnie’s Jams Peach Ginger Jam – Value $9

This jam is an Oprah’s Favorite Thing from 2013, and it is delicious. The peach and ginger is a great flavor combination, and it’s not overly sweet. Hamptons Lane recommends combining it with the included Fig Balsamic Vinegar to make a glaze for a duck or pork dish.

Hamptons Lane Subscription Box Review & Coupon – Dec 2014 Bitters

Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters – Value $8.50

The Girl & The Fig Fig Balsamic Vinegar – Value $10

The Aztec Chocolate Bitters is a blend of bitters that includes cacao beans, peppers and spices. They also included a cocktail recipe for an Aztec Chocolate Old Fashioned.

Olive oil and balsamic vinegar are two items I’m always happy to receive in subscription boxes since they are kitchen staples. This one is made with fig paste so it’s a little sweet but still tart. (Hamptons Lane recommends pairing it with anything from fruit, to cheese to meat, and they also included a recipe for Peach Ginger Pork Tenderloin that uses both the vinegar and the peach ginger jam).

Verdict: This box has a value of about $57 (that’s including my estimate on the cost of the serving board).  The value is good, and as always I think the best part of this box is the curation. They definitely put a lot of thought into selecting the items, making the recipes, and putting together a theme.

What do you think of the December Hamptons Lane box?

FYI – if you are planning on signing up for this box and want to make sure it arrives by 12/24, make sure to sign up by 12/15!

  1. I got this box for Xmas for DH and have to say I am a bit disappointed in the presentation. The Hamptons Lane box didn’t fit all the the items and so I had to wrap it all up in the shipping box (same goes for the breakfast box). The items seem nice, but they really could have done a better job with getting a bigger HL box to fit the items in. Also, it seems geared towards females, and I’m also a bit disappointed that they didn’t present it gender neutral… since it’s for my male husband. :/

  2. This is from attending too many food safety classes. Is it easy to clean the knife slot?

    • I dont think it is. I soaked a qtip in dish soap and jammed it in there,lol. It is a cute and well made board though
