Dottie Box Subscription Box Review – April 2015
Dottie Box is a box curated every month for women. They feature high quality handmade items, small businesses, and indie brands. They offer a regular and a mini box; this is a review of the regular box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: Dottie Box
The Cost: Full Size Box: $20/month + $6 shipping, Mini Box: $10/month + $3 shipping
The Products: Quality hand-made items for women selected from indie brands and small businesses.
Ships to: US
Each box comes with an informational card detailing the featured items.
Wine Glass Charms – set of 2, value: $6
Hair Tie – value: $1.50
These charms are really cute and well made, I think. I don’t drink myself (plus, I’m pregnant so I couldn’t anyway), but I can see these being part of a nice hostess gift.
Unfortunately, my hair is too fine for these types of hair ties to stay in, so I always pass these along to my sister. I feel like they’ve been trending in subscription boxes for a while now, though.
“Be Brave” Decal – value: $4.50
Philly Loves Lacquer Polish in “Siren Call” – .5 oz (full size), value: $12
This decal is pretty, and I’m thinking that I’ll put it on my laptop! (FYI, the info card values this at $4.50 but it’s currently on sale for $3.15 in their Etsy shop!)
This nail polish is really pretty – it’s an orangey red, with glitter in the bottle, but it goes on a little sheer. It’ll take a few coats for a full opacity. I love that it’s handmade, vegan, cruelty-free, and 5-free!
Pennie Post Farmer’s Market Watercolor Card Set – value: $8
Pennie Post has their own monthly subscription, which I also review each month. I think I received one of each of these patterns in the past, but I’m happy to have a whole new set – I really like these designs!
The Verdict: This was an alright DottieBox for me. I was thrilled to see Pennie Post featured, and I’ll use the decal and nail polish, but the wine charms and hair tie were a miss for me. The value of everything adds up to $32, which I’m happy with for a $20 box.
