Dottie Box Mini Subscription Box Review – August 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 mini 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
Every Dottie Box Mini comes with a little card listing the items featured for the month.
Koco and Viking Dreams Necklace – value: $18
Dottie Box Drink Koozie – value: $4.99?
We don’t really have a need for drink koozies, so this one will get passed along or swapped. This necklace is really cute, though! I like the quote.
Handcrafted Brunette 20% Off Coupon
OMstacks 15% Off Coupon
Dottie Box almost always includes coupons to featured retailers, but this month this OMstacks coupon is listed on the info card like it’s supposed to be a main item. I think it’s great when subscriptions include coupons and promo codes, but I don’t think they should be counted towards the total value if it’s not a code for a free something without the need to enter card info.
Spruce & Fresh Morning Glory Soap – value: $8
The packaging for this soap is beautiful – I’m a sucker for gold foil on packaging! Also, the Energetic Orange Rose scent is really nice.
Here’s what the bar of soap looks like unwrapped – the metallic gold and pink is so pretty!
The Verdict: The value of this month’s mini Dottie Box comes out to $30.99, which I’m pretty happy with, but I wish they had included maybe one more item to boost the value and be a fourth featured item instead of the coupon.
