We have our first January 2016 Luxor box spoiler! (Thanks Marlene and Marie!) Each JanuaryΒ Luxor Box will include:

Luxor Box January Spoiler

This Mottahedeh Snowflake Mug (Value $45)

What do you think of the first spoiler? Any guesses on the item that is too large to fit in their signature box?

  1. I LOVE my Luxor Box subscription. I didn’t like the ” Most Requested” box, and I won’t be doing that again, but the reg. boxes are beautiful.

    I’m super excited about the Mottahedeh mug as my kitchen is blue and white tiles and flooring. It’s unusual to find pretty blue and white accessories. Also, I never see snow, so the snowflake pattern is cute for me. If I lived in a cold weather climate, probably not so cute. πŸ™‚

    I hope it’s another great box and I’m really looking forward to the ” large item”, whatever it is. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. I don’t get excited about mug in general. But the more I look at it, I thought it might work as a mini flower vase on the table, or to put kitchen tools by the stove. I only wish that this would have been in the Nov box, so that we can use it for the holidays, instead of waiting till January..

  3. Remind me, isn’t there going to be a price hike? Like if I were to cancel and sign up again, I would be paying more than $125??? wasn’t that communicated to us? Or am I dreaming?

    • That is correct.

  4. Meh. I’m not excited so far. I loved last month’s box and was hoping Luxor would be my new favorite sub, but this disappoints me. I have too many random mugs at home already. I also hate winter (especially all the snow!) and don’t really want a mug with snowflakes. I know this is a higher end brand, but I feel like I can buy a winter-themed mug at Target, or even the dollar store. This will be gifted or put on the swap site. Crossing my fingers that the rest of the box will be awesome and make me feel better about spending $125 on it!

    • P.S. – I just looked the mug up on their site and noticed the tiny little handle, which is partially covered in the picture. This may not be a big deal for most people, but I’m not a fan (like, at all!) of big mugs with tiny handles. I find them awkward to use.

  5. I love the mug! I usually drink my morning tea from a travel mug so my cat doesn’t think it’s sharing time, but this mug might change my mind. . .

  6. I think I’ll be trying this subscription if there’s a great Black Friday deal.

    • Me too. Luxor, if you are reading this, I have some money saved up for you!

  7. That mug is so pretty, and 7″ tall is pretty tall for a mug.

    Still, the box is kind of expensive, and the mug is ~15% of the total value ($45/$300,min), not sure at ~60% discount ((300-125)/300) that the mug is worth it to me for something i’d likely use to hold my knitting needles or crochet hooks, and is still like paying $19 for a really gorgeous mug. i guess i am not luxe enough. i know i will have box envy when i see the rest of the contents and i can’t wait to see what you get.

  8. Ooooooooooo I love the mug (though I wouldn’t pay $45 for it either)! I WISH the oversize item would be the large oval bowl that matches the mug, but my bet is on a blanket or throw. I hope it’s a large one, and soft! I can never have too many blankets or mugs πŸ™‚

  9. Meh, the mug isn’t very exciting. The oversized item is probably a throw, which I really don’t need. I’ll have to pass on this month.

  10. Really, really hoping for a Black Friday deal since I’m kicking myself for not locking in the old box price! πŸ™‚

  11. While the mugs RV seems high, I have actually priced this company’s product before and the RV is in line with their products. They are a high end china company that is generally higher than Wedgwood or Lenox and more in line with Spode and rosenthal so the RV is not surprising to me as a 4 piece place setting of their china is around $200 or more.

  12. I loved the theme when it came out and was seriously considering ordering but then this spoiler and I was once again reminded that to me luxor box always has an old lady vibe. (No offense to those who love luxor it just so far has not fit my style.) I am intrigued by the too big for the box item and hope its a blanket. Do I risk the $125? Its not like i need another blanket…I buy them all the time since i love to be cozy on the couch.

  13. Got burned on the “most requested” box. Definitely taking a pass, especially with a mug “valued” at $45. I realize there’s still a lot of potential value left but I worry about over-inflating again.

  14. Pretty but boring.

    On the bright side, the RV leaves plenty of room for other items.

  15. That ‘extra-large’ item just HAS to be a blanket!

    • Fingers crossed!! πŸ™‚

    • Here’s hoping! I will be soooo happy if this is the case. I don’t always like their taste in jewelry but they really do seem to find quality items so I’d guess it would be a nice one!

    • Y’know, that makes total sense.

      This sub seems really clued in to what sub addicts want. And everyone seems to go crazy for a throw. KE-RAY-ZEE.

  16. Why in the world does this mug cost $45?????

    • Lol, I wondered the same thing! $45 for a mug? Snort.

    • I was just thinking the same thing. Same with PSMH and the $80 ear buds. I don’t know if I’m just a grump or what but it really gives me bad feelings towards the sub when they over inflate the price so ridiculously to make the box sound like its value is higher.

      • I thought it might be over inflated too, but that is what it sells for on the Mottahedeh website.

    • Right?? That mug would need to make my coffee for me to be worth it.

    • Because it’s fine china from a well-regarded brand. I wouldn’t pay retail for it, but I think it’s a good spoiler and it’s making me think about getting this box instead of (or, in addition to? who am i kidding…) the PSMH LE box.
