POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review – December 2014 + Giveaway!
POPSUGAR Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send a mix of items from categories like beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home, etc.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes). I also have a POPSUGAR Must Have subscription that I pay for, but my box hasn’t shipped yet. (Since POPSUGAR sent me this box for review, I’m giving away my December box to one lucky My Subscription Addiction reader – giveaway at the end of the post!)
The Subscription Box: POPSUGAR Must Have
The Cost: 39.95 a month
COUPON: Use coupon code MUSTHAVE5 to save $5 off your first box.
The Products: “Must Have” items for women selected by POPSUGAR editors. (Fitness, Home, Beauty, Food, and more)
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Sparkle Pop Jewelry Sydney Pendant Necklace – Value $42
This necklace manages to be both delicate and a bit of a statement piece – I love it. This picture should give you a better sense of length:
(You could also drape it around your neck twice for a layered shorter look).
And I think it pairs really well with the scarf:
Subtle Luxury Speckled Metallic Scarf – Value $62
This is a very lightweight weave with gold metallic speckles on one side.
The underside of the scarf is a bit of a muted silver sparkle, so you could get a bit of a different metallic look depending on how you drape it.
Canvas Home Dauville Bowl in Platinum – Value $29
This is one of those items I would never think to buy myself, but I love getting little trays and bowls in subscription boxes – they are great for keeping my desk and nightstand organized. Plus this one is gorgeous! The outside white part has the traditional ceramic feel, and it’s a nice contrast with the metallic chrome inside.
The info card references the “deep bordeaux color” of this lip lacquer, so I think it is safe to say all subscribers will get the same color. This lip lacquer seems to be part gloss/part stain. It’s not too sticky, and I like the deep-berry color.
Williams Sonoma Cupcake Mix in Vanilla Bean – Value $15
I can’t eat these cupcakes because of dairy/gluten, but I’m totally OK with that because I think this cupcake mix will make a great gift. (This is another item that was listed as Vanilla Bean in the card, so I’m guessing there won’t be variation).
Knot & Bow Gift Package Tags – Value $4
I think this is a smarter packaging/gift wrap item than the holiday gift wrap in last year’s December box. I know quite a few people gifted the box for the holidays, so it was a little too late to get gift wrap paper as part of your gift. This is a small value item and the color works for all holidays all-year-long, so no complaints here!
Verdict: This is one of my favorite POPSUGAR Must Have boxes ever. It feels very thoughtfully curated, and I think they nailed just the right amount of sparkle! I also love it because I think it’s a great box to gift. If you bought a gift subscription or are planning to buy one – I think this is a great introductory POPSUGAR box!
