The August MissionCute box includes a card listing the value of each of the included items on one side and details about the month’s nonprofit on the back. This month, MissionCute is donating to The Warm Place, a grief support center for children.
Just Be Kind 5×7 Print – Value $9
MissionCute often includes a print with an inspiring quote or saying. This pastel pink design is printed on cardstock and comes in a clear plastic sleeve. MissionCute lists the value as $9, which might be a bit high. If it was framed, though, it would make a lovely home accent.
Silver Pendant Necklace by Starfish Project – Value $27.99
Starfish Project is an organization that cares for women escaping human trafficking and exploitation in Asia. They provide women healthcare, vocational training, shelter, counseling, and more. One of their initiatives is giving women job training and experience through their jewelry business. This silver necklace is a product of that project. The charms on the end of this long chain are understated and edgy—definitely on-trend and very cool. I love the little chunk of white quartz most of all. What a beautiful item with a great story behind it.
Fig and Sugar Wax Tarts – Value $5
These wax tarts are made by Candelles, a small candle company in Pennsylvania. They focus on eco-friendly, hand-poured products that bring light to people’s lives. These tarts smell sweet and earthy, with plenty of vanilla undertones. Perfect for fall. Of course, you’ll need a tart burner to bring these fragrant tarts to life!
Triangle Hair Clip – $12
This metallic gold hair clip isn’t meant to do any heavy lifting—it’s more of an accent piece, but it’s a very cool way to bring some life into your locks. My only hold up is that I don’t feel like this clip is quite worth $12, since it’s not particularly sophisticated and the metal doesn’t seem super high quality. But it’s still a unique hair accessory to add to my collection!
Strawberries and Creme Bath Bomb – Value $7
This sweet-smelling, pink bath bomb is made by Sweet Intensions, a company that focuses on natural, sustainable, cruelty-free body care products (they also have a subscription box!). The scent of this fizzy find is definitely true to its name, and I love that it’s as gentle on the environment as it is on my skin.
Midnight Breeze Scarf – Value $16
This cobalt-blue scarf is incredibly soft and lightweight. The tag says it’s 50% cotton, 50% viscose (a rayon-type of material made from wood pulp). This infinity scarf is just right for days when it’s not quite chilly enough for heavy-duty scarves, but that brisk, early-fall feeling is starting to creep into the air.
Verdict: The August MissionCute box was really fun. I loved that the items came from small companies with great intentions for their products. The items from those small brands felt like quality finds, though the hair clip and the print felt a little over-valued for what they were. All in all, this box was definitely worth it (using the numbers from MissionCute, the value of the box reaches way into the $70 range). And especially when you note that 50% of proceeds go to a good cause, this MissionCute box was a good investment.
