POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Holiday Box For Him Review
The POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Holiday Box for Her is a once-a-year limited edition box that POPSUGAR releases. The box I’m reviewing is the Men’s box. (Check out the review of the Women’s Box too!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The box is packaged perfectly to gift – each item is wrapped individually with tissue paper.
The Cost: $100 (One time purchase)

The box comes with a fold out card detailing each item included.
The card also lists suggested retail prices for each item.
Dakota Grizzly Chunky Charcoal Beanie – Value $45
This is a thick-knit beanie, and it has the right amount of stretch. It’s well made, and the leather Dakota Grizzly patch is a unique touch. (My husband loves the beanie itself, but isn’t crazy about the Dakota Grizzly logo. Of course you don’t have to wear it with the logo front and center, so it is not an issue!)
This leather tray is even nicer than I thought it would be after seeing the spoilers. I was expecting the lining of the tray to be the reverse side of the finished leather, but instead they added another layer of leather so both the inside and the base of the tray are the finished leather material. It gives it a much more professional/finished look, and the leather quality is great.
It’s big enough to hold your phone, keys, wallet etc. too. (It measures 6 X 7.5 inches)
Ursa Major Stellar Shave Cream and Fantastic Face Wash (Travel Sizes) – Value $22
This set also came with samples of Ursa Major Face Balm and a Face Wipe. I’ve loved this natural men’s grooming brand since I first discovered it (I think through Birchbox Man), and today I found out it’s my husband’s favorite face wash ever.
Urbanears Earbuds in Cobalt – Value $30
While we have more headphones/earbuds than we need thanks to subscription boxes, I am impressed with the design of both these headphones and the packaging. The headphones come with three different sizes of ear pads so you can make sure you get a comfortable fit, and they also have a built in microphone and remote.
Richer Poorer The Long Weekend Sock Set (3 Pack) – Value $32
Socks are an item I’m always happy to see in a subscription box, and my husband felt the same way with these. I like that they included a boxed 3-pack since it can work as a gift on alone if you want to break this box down into gifts.
Wurkin Stiffs Power Collar Stays – Value $40
These are the one item in the box my husband won’t use (he’s a work-from-home developer, so his work uniform is of the hoodie variety). I think these make a great gift/stocking stuffer on their own, and from what I’ve read in reviews they do a great job at keeping collars in place. We will be gifting these!
My husband is a big coffee drinker, so this chocolate was perfect for him. (Allergen info: soy, dairy, may contain traces of nuts).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $254. I’m happy with the value of this box, and I think it was a good fit for my husband. I was worried there would be too many formal-wear type pieces, but besides the collar stays, everything else works great for him. I think they did a good job at curation this year with both the men’s and women’s boxes – in my opinion both would make great gifts!
