This box comes with a card detailing the items included.


Hibiscus Notebook – $16.00

I love this floral design it reminds me of fall. The hibiscus flowers are beautifully illustrated on this 5×7, 160 sheets, ruled notebook. It’s the perfect size for your purse, for writing to-do lists to starting your holiday shopping strategies.




Orange Cardamom Tea Cookies – Value $3.00

This was delicious tea cookie was crunchy and buttery. I tasted butter, cinnamon, and lavender. I realized after taking the items out of the box, the tea cookies were next to the bath bomb cubes that are lavender sage, that would explain the taste of lavender I got when I ate the tea cookie.


Lavender Sage Bath Bombs Cubes – $12.00

This all natural set of two bath bomb cubes has an appealing aroma. The lavender sage and essential oils are perfect for a long soak after a grueling work day.

Wall Bud Vase – $21.90

When I opened the box and pulled this out, I had no idea what this was or its purpose; upon further investigation this style is “science chic” and intended for a lovely touch of the “outdoors inside”. Basically, this all-natural wood with a colorful painted stripe and test tube in the middle is a wall vase. I love and admire how Emily has repurposed items to make them fun and useful in our lives.

Verdict: The Aster Market August box has a retail value of $52.90. I found this box to be fun and unique, the wall bud vase being the unique part, which I may gift or swap not sure if it will find a home in my apartment. The items that come in these boxes are useful and often times have more of a gifting theme with the products as opposed to other subscription boxes. Which makes it a treat each month to see what fun, unique, eclectic gifts they choose for their subscribers. (If you are looking for a high-value box, I would not recommend Aster Market).

What do you think of the August Aster Market box?

  1. I have all the materials in my garage to make this, along with a few variations. But $21.90? It would need a few extra touches. Router edges, stain, painted hardware. That would make it unique and thoughtful

    • …and the wood that they chose looks like the very inexpensive yellow pine…

  2. I just love that bud vase! It’s gorgeous! Enough so that I just emailed Aster to see if I would get the August box if I signed up right now. I will let folks know!

    • That’s cool, let us know what happens!

      • I contacted them and they got right back to me, on the weekend no less! A subscription at this point would start with the September box but they do still have a couple left to order it sounds like as one time boxes.

  3. Such a beautiful box! Nice review, Nich!

    • Thanks, Jessica
