This box puts lots of consideration into the information they provide their members. Background on the items and their creators, a thoughtful note from the company, and info to share with fellow Ireland fans. So nice!

I was delighted by the uncommon Irish finds in the last MyIrelandBox I received (there’s more to Irish gifts than shamrocks and Claddagh rings!), so I was excited to see whether this box would continue that pattern.

Giant Irish Elk by Saturday Workshop – Value $38.69 USD

This figure comes in pieces, almost like a very simple puzzle. I love the minimalist design, which reminds me of Scandinavian art I’ve seen. The Giant Irish Elk is, unfortunately extinct, but this piece of Irish decor is thoughtfully made from sustainable Irish beech. It’s not too big, nor too small, and it looks awesome on my mantle.

Ultimate Coloring Ireland Map Greeting Card by Stephen Farnan Studio – Value $6.61

Adult coloring is all the rage, so I was excited to try my hand at it with this oversized card. The card comes with five colored pencils in typical primary colors, each with a finely sharpened tip—that came in handy as I worked around the extremely detailed patterns in this design. I like that the greeting-card format of this coloring page lets you decide whether to color and send, or send to a friend and invite them to color in the design.

40 Piece Wooden Sheep Puzzle by Real Ireland Design – Value $12 (based on similar items)

Real Ireland Design has lots of gorgeous calendars, bookmarks, and more on their page, but no puzzles, so I took a guess with the value, based on other wooden puzzles of a similar size!

With its classic sheep motif, this puzzle is more of an “expected” Irish gift than the other items in the box. But who doesn’t love a puzzle? The wooden pieces feel more high quality than typical cardboard puzzles. It’s also the perfect size for holding my attention just long enough!

Verdict: I’m impressed by MyIrelandBox! Each month, they find fresh items that echo Irish culture in a modern, fun way. The items are high-quality, too. This month’s box topped the $45.00 minimum value MyIrelandBox guarantees, clocking in at $57.30. For the value, the quality, and the uniqueness of the items, I definitely recommend MyIrelandBox!
