Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Box

Skandicrush is a new subscription box dedicated to Scandinavian design items for the home. They also launched their first limited edition box for December – the Holiday Box!

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Items

The Box: Skandicrush Holiday Box (This box is no longer available for purchase, but regular Skandicrush subscriptions are open)

The Cost: $65 (one time purchase)

The Items: Eight individually wrapped small gifts.

All the items arrived ready for gifting or unwrapping yourself!

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review Forks

Nuance Multiforks – Value $15

Like most thinks Skandicrush sends, I really like the simple and modern design of these appetizer forks!

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Tea

Normann Copenhagen Tea Egg – Value $18

This tea infuser is dishwasher safe silicone, and I like that it is so long – I just can set it any size tea mug I have.

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Reverse

Ferm Living Cutting/Serving Board – Value $30

This cutting board has another pattern on the flip side:

It works as a cutting board, serving board, or even a trivet for hot pans. (And it is dishwasher safe!)

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Notepad

HAY Bookbinders Book – Value $10

This notebook doesn’t have a hard cover, and it’s pretty basic but useful.

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Ornaments

Inside the little red bag were these wooden snowflake ornaments! (Value $6 total?)

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Milk

Normann Copenhagen Geo Milk Jug – Value $15

I don’t drink dairy, so this little creamer is getting swapped!

Skandicrush Holiday Box Review  Tin

Manostiles Tin – Value $20

This item wasn’t wrapped since it is already good to go! I can always use more organizational things to hide clutter on my desk, so this works well for my cards and envelopes.

 Sagaform Letter Salad Set – Value $22

This salad server set is another beautifully and simply designed piece. I also like that the box it comes in is “wrapped” – it would make a great hostess gift.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $136 – just over double the cost of the box. I’m very pleased with the value for a home item box, and they delivered what I was expecting – practical and stylish home items. (Check out the Skandicrush Holiday Box reveal if you’d love to see all the different variations that were shipped).

  1. Sadly, my marble cheese tray was broken in three pieces. I e-mailed pictures right away and the customer service was great! She referred to it as “marble gate” so I am sure I am not alone with the breakage and I was sent the above cutting board/trivet via priority mail as a replacement–she allowed me to pick my choice from three possibilities. (I wish there were more of the marble as a replacement, but they were gone and the supplier couldn’t get more. I even tried to order it from another online course and my order was cancelled, as stock was sold out.)
    I also received the ceramic carafe and a set of three tree shaped spinning tops as variations to the above. (I did not receive the forks.) I was very happy with my box and am close to subscribing.

  2. It was fun to read the review. I was really curious about it.

  3. I loved my box. Everything came beautifully wrapped, perfect for gift giving. And the website had a thoughtful guide to let one know what is in each package so one did not have to unwrap them to find out what was inside.

    I really wanted the forks, but I am happy with all the items. I found it fun to not know what I was getting even though I saw the spoilers of the various possibilities.

    By the way, I am highly allergic to all cow milk products, the milk jug will be used for oat and almond milk.

  4. I loved,my box, got a marble cheese tray, wooden puzzle horse, notebook, milk jug, tea egg, serving forks, salad tongs, and storage tin. 8 items, love it.

  5. Wow! I think I lucked out on this one. I received a deck of cards instead of the notebook, but also received a large ceramic carafe instead of the milk jug. I think the variation on this box must have depended on what people chose for holiday preference? They sent an email early December asking if you’d like a lot, a few, or no holiday items. I selected a few.

  6. Per the website, the products are inspired by Scandinavian design. Also they have this on their vendor page:

    Skandicrush is for people who love modern Scandinavian, Nordic, Northern European design. There is no requirement that your products be designed or manufactured in those regions, only that they be inspired by the commitment to beautiful functionality that the region is known for.

    I think this was a great box, but it sucks if everyone didn’t get it. Hope this wasn’t a blogger box.

  7. Wow, we received different items?! I would have thought with a specially priced holiday box, they would have sent everyone the same thing. I like yours better. I gifted 6 out of 8 items.

  8. I received different items in my box and believe my overall value is far less than $136 (no forks or cutting board, but another ornament). What made me cancel my subscription were the made in China and Taiwan stickers on my “Scandinavian” items. The box is a great concept, and I received the holiday box and two monthly boxes, so I feel I gave it good shot.

    • I was just sitting here wondering if the items where actually Scandinavian or made in China with Scandinavian design. So it really isn’t a Scandinavian box, but more of a themed box. Bummer. Hate all that made in China stuff.

      • My new iPhone was made in China and I love it.
