Skandicrush Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Info


The box comes with a card detailing the items included and the theme for that month. This month is all about incorporating more blooming plants into your home.

Skandicrush Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Bag

Le Sac En Papier – Value $8

According to the info card, these oversized paper bags are very popular on Scandinavian design blogs. You can use them for storage containers, plant pots, etc.

Skandicrush Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Planter

Sagaform Herb Pot Large – Value $35

This planter has a cut out in the corner to make watering easy. As usual with this subscription, I love the simple design of this item.

Skandicrush Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Vase

Normann Copenhagen Nyhavn Vase – Value $26

The vase is very appropriate for the theme, and I love that Skandicrush sends out so many neutral-colored items – I’m guessing they will go with most decor.

Verdict: This box has a value of almost $70 – I’m happy with that, and I’m sad that this is the last from Skandicrush for now. I loved the theme this month too – I think it is perfect for spring. And now I’m a little obsessed with looking at Le Sac En Papier pins on Pinterest!

What do you think of the March 2015 Skandicrush box?

  1. I don’t subscribe to this box but I did purchase half a dozen of the Sagaform Herb Pots literally ages ago from RueLaLa or One Kings Lane, not sure which, and I can honestly say that I didn’t love it. Many of my family members grow fresh herbs on the windowsill so I thought this would be awesome gift and yet I’ve still got five of them sitting in my attic.
    Totally wanted to love it….

    • now you can trade them all!! lol

  2. My favorite of the box is the paper bag! I’ve pinned a few things on Pinterest where you roll a paper bag a quarter of the way or halfway down & use it as a storage container. It’s really cool lookin! You can paint the bag colored blocked white and gold and it looks very modern. I love that this one has print on it.

  3. I paid $55 for my subscription and received $60 worth of products from Scandinavia. I don’t include the paper bag from France as a Scandinavian item, so I don’t calculate that in the value (to me) of the box. Sorry, Liz.

    The founder/owner seems to be a lovely woman who’s very professional and provides excellent customer service (LLB could use a lesson from her). I really hope she’s able to continue her service and I wish her continued success!!!

    • And yes, I did read that the bag is popular on Scandinavian design blogs.

  4. I love my similar bag, but it is a thicker paper. I use it to collect blankets but they look equally awesome to collect toys in a nursery. Mine is white with a panda face on it and the top came like rolled down with the brown cardboard – ish side exposed. So chic!

  5. This was an ok box but not my favorite. For me the bag was odd and not sure what to do with it . If you signed up before the price increase the subscription remained at $50.00 so if Skandicrush starts up again am curious if that will stay the same . I have this feeling that it might not start up again and that would be disappointing.

  6. The cost has been $55 for a while now.

    I really like the looks of the herb pot, and the vase is cute. I can see the bag being more popular in places where people don’t speak English/French as much. It reminds me of the giftwrap I used to buy when I lived in Japan, that had lots of meaningless English text on it. But of course now I want to try one to see what all the fuss is about!

  7. I liked my box this month, but I’m a little glad that there is going to be a pause for a bit. I always like at least one item in my Skandicrush box, but I seldom like the whole box. This month I loved the vase and I will probably like the pot once I figure out a good herb or plant to put in it. I have to admit that I don’t understand the bag at all. I’ve looked at the blogs and the bag looks cool, but I can’t imagine me ever using it like I see in the pinterest photos.

    I’m sad that so far some of my favorite boxes have been the October and November, which I missed out on getting.
