Hammock Pack Subscription Box Review – September 2015
Hammock Pack is a monthly mini vacation-in-a-box subscription. Each month they send you full-size items from a different location or themed vacation like “beach house.” This month’s destination is Philadelphia.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Hammock Pack
The Cost: $25 a month plus $5 shipping
The Products: Every month, you’ll receive a surprise pack filled with everything you need to take a much-needed getaway without even leaving your home.
Ships to: US
Delivered via: USPS
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Girls Can Tell Gift Co. Tea Towel – Value $15
This illustration of a Philadephia style pretzel is so fun – and I could see this being a thoughtful souvenir gift, so I think it is a great addition to the box.
I love the Hand in Hand brand (they support fair trade and work with natural ingredients), but this lip balm is a little too rosy for me. I like rose scents sometimes, but this one will be gifted/swapped!
Candelles Vanilla Maple Candle – Value $7.50
This brand is my favorite discovery in the box. They make their candles with 100% natural soy wax produced by U.S farmers, all natural fragrance oils, non-treated lead-free cotton wicks, and no dyes. And now I want to buy all the candles in their Fall Collection. (I’ve never seen a Sugared Sweet Potato candle before, and I want to know what it smells like!)
This candle is just as sweet smelling as you’d expect, and perfect for fall.
Stroopies – Value $2.50
These are one of my husband’s favorite treats to go with coffee. (And I just found out they make a gluten-free version!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $33. That’s typical for Hammock Pack – the value of the box is pretty close to the cost. I like this box for the curation, and with the exception of the lip balm, this is a good fit for me.
What do you think of the September 2015 Hammock Pack? Is it a good representation of souvenirs from Philadelphia?
