Each box comes with an informational card detailing the featured items.
Print from One Word Designs – value: $10
I’m a fan of getting prints in subscription boxes – this one is so cute and I can see framing it and putting it in a kid’s room or in your bedroom or something.
Aromatherapy Candle from Sudsy Soapery – 2 oz, value: $4.75
Blueberry Shea Soap from Natural Soap Co. – ~3.5 oz, value: $4.50
Candles are another favorite thing of mine to get in sub boxes, and I like that this one has a lid! It has a lavender and lemon scent to it – it’s a win for me. (I adjusted the value of the candle from the info card, where it’s listed as $6, to what it sells for on their website.)
This soap is made in my home state! The blueberry scent is awesome, too. (Again, I just used the price from the website instead of from the info card – it was only a $.50 difference, though).
DottieBox Hand Lettered Mug – value: $12?
I like the idea of this mug, but I would have preferred it to either be made with an actual print, or if they included the plain mug and some sharpies with instructions for decorating it yourself. That being said, it’s still a nice mug. Part of me wants to try putting it in the dishwasher – there’s no note saying it’s not dishwasher safe, but if it isn’t and the ink comes off, then maybe I can try my hand at decorating it personally! Either way, I’ll still be using or gifting it.
The Verdict: I liked this month’s DottieBox quite a bit. I’ll use everything in it, so that’s a win for me! As far as value goes, everything adds up to $31.25, so I’m happy with that value.
