There is SO MUCH fun stuff in this box to explore. Let’s get to it!

Right on the top of the box is a greeting from Rebecca, the entrepreneur who created RebeccaMail. The theme this month is “Back to You!”, and according to the note on the reverse of this school bus image, all of the items are meant to help make the recipient feel spectacular. Sounds good to me!

On the reverse side of this card is a list of the box’s contents and their values.

rebecca-mail-september-2016-print

“Embrace Today” Matted Art Print – Value $10.00

Between the beautiful illustration and the matted presentation, there’s a lot to love about this print. I really appreciate the mat—it’s a simple yet thoughtful detail that brings value and sophistication to this piece of decor.

rebecca-mail-september-2016-bath-bombs

Two Deluxe Bath Bombs – Value $10.00

Next up are a set of two bath bombs, one scented like Almond Coconut (the creamy colored one) and the other like Snickerdoodle (the darker one). The Snickerdoodle bath bomb is almost the color of a blueberry smoothie in person, so I was curious as whether this classic cookie scent would ring true. It definitely did. Both bombs have lovely, gently sweet, French-bakery kinds of aromas to them, a pleasant fizz, and a hint of twinkle.

rebecca-mail-september-2016-lipstick

Mary Kay Amour Lipstick – Value $15.00

This Mary Kay color goes on smooth and has a translucent pinky-peach color that’s easy to build to your desired brightness. The shade is light, warm, fun, and probably a crowd pleasing match for beauty lovers with different skin tones. I thought it was sweet how the lipstick has heart designs pressed into it. And I absolutely love that a portion of the proceeds from this lipstick go to supporting women’s and children’s shelters, as well as victims of domestic violence.

Boom Chicka Pop Kettle Corn (1 oz) – Value $0.88 (Listed Value: $2.00)

$2 feels like a lot for popcorn, but this is a lot of organic, non-GMO snack for your buck. And did I mention it’s really delicious? This kettle corn tasted only lightly sugared and salted, so that I didn’t have that sickish feeling by the time I hit the end of the bag (and I hit it pretty fast…). Awesome midday snack!

rebecca-mail-september-2016-magnet

Sassy Magnet – Value $3.00

I definitely smiled at this silly little magnet. And at the clever presentation. (Get it? The little teal magnet is presented on a print of a fridge!) Super cute.

rebecca-mail-september-2016-necklace

Gold & Ivory Crystal Druzy Necklace – Value $36.99

I think this gold and crystal necklace is really cool—I love the trend towards raw-looking gems, so I’m super into this understated, just-edgy-enough pendant. It comes tucked inside a tiny drawstring pouch, which I hope I can find a happy purpose for. (maybe to hold my quarters for the laundromat?)

If you don’t know about the Starfish Project, definitely read up! This organization uses a jewelry business (along with numerous other programs) as an initiative to bring jobs and career experience to victims of human trafficking and exploitation. What a great backstory to a beautiful piece!

rebecca-mail-september-2016-card

Queen Anne’s Lace Card – Value $4.50

This glossy floral greeting card features a famous A.A. Milne quote. I especially like the filtered, vintage vibe of the photo. RebeccaMail includes cards in their boxes in the hopes that you can spread a little cheer to someone you care about. I’m always so flattered when I get a thoughtful card out of the blue—I’m sure this would make a much-appreciated, very unexpected surprise for someone special!

rebecca-mail-september-2016-booklet

Last but not least, the box contains a few cards (I love this round one by Starfish Project) and a free coaching call with Sandra Joseph, a life coach who helped RebeccaMail’s founder discover her true passion and dive into the subscription box world.

Verdict: Seriously, this RebeccaMail box has SO much in it! I loved the positive, upbeat vibes of these treasures, and that a few of them had community-benefitting causes associated with them. The value of this box was about $60, which far exceeds the price of the box, and I felt like the quality of the pieces matched, if not surpassed what I expected for a box at this price range. If you’re looking for a lighthearted lifestyle box, this is definitely one I’d recommend.

  1. I considered this box, or at least thought about it enough to look it up, and I was really disappointed to see in April she had a Go Fund me site asking for money to start a subscription box. That is disturbing to me I think of Go Fund me pages to help people in need, or just suffered through some sort of tragedy not to ask for money to start a business. It seems a little self absorbed and ballsy to me to ask for money like that knowing there are real people suffering who could use a donation. I would also be concerned to pay for anything upfront not knowing if she’s trying to make this work on a shoestring budget. Hopefully, she found the right investors and won’t go under leaving long term subscribers at a loss. I guess I’m part of the grumpy group, or maybe skeptical is the right word. The lipstick in that box is definitely sending me to the Mary Kay website I love the color.

    • How did you find out about the Go Fund me page?

  2. Super cute box!!! I love everything about it!
    Someone has great taste! 😀

  3. $40 for a box with a card, magnet and popcorn?? Heck nooo!

  4. I love everything but the bath bombs~ I never take baths. Another box featured the Starfish Project months ago, I bought some of their earrings, so cute and supports such an important cause.

  5. I’m a grumpy old woman today too. Just sayin. It made me feel better to type it though.

  6. Tons you cute finds. I am loving this box.

  7. Nice box. I like the necklace and the bath bombs look like a nice pastry…LOL. The magnet is super cute!!

    • Oh, now you made me hungry

  8. Totally not my taste. In fact, none of the uplift-y encouragement boxes are ever my taste! I think I am just a grumpy old woman!

    • I agree. Grumpy old women unite! ?

    • I totally agree..Maybe I’ve become cynical after years of boxes.I don’t feel “uplifted” paying that much for cards and bathbombs. I like that it helps others..price wise I do not feel it.

    • May I add to the grump with two pet peeves? 1. Why name a box after yourself (unless you were famous or something)? It says nothing about the box for marketing appeal. 2. Just say the box costs $41 instead of $35 + shipping. The majority of things ship free these days; it’s not fooling us either way. We know the other boxes have shipping built into the price.

      Also, to get really picky: I you print a quote, attribute it with the quote. And don’t print your box name on the front of “art prints,” it just looks cheesy.

      Ahhh…feel better now, grump receding…

      • I was thinking the same thing about putting her website on the front of the art print. It completely ruined it for me. Also, it looks as though the AA Milne quote doesn’t give him credit for it? Not cool either
