This month’s Gift Izzy theme was “Inspire”. Gift Izzy encourages us to be brave, courageous and inspired wearing the jewelry, scarf and makeup sent this month.

Gift Izzy Limited Edition Gianni Bulgari Lion Bracelet – Value $299

Greek-Italian designer Gianni Bulgari created this exclusive lion’s face bracelet on a navy blue velvet ribbon. This elegant and unique bracelet ties onto your wrist making it work for any size wrist. I love the dichotomy of sleek, shiny silver with warm, rich velvet. The stunning bracelet arrived in a velvet pouch perfect for gifting.

Inspire Key Necklace – Value $25.00?

The Inspire Key Necklace isn’t listed on the Gift Izzy Meet Our Designer Card so I’m unsure of the value. This key necklace came ready for gifting in the signature Gift Izzy purple jewelry box. This inspirational key helps open a safe world for a child who has been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect. A portion of the proceeds goes to Kids Sanctuary Campus which provides housing for foster children. The card inside the box encourages you to pass this key along to INSPIRE another soul. The simple stamped key is pretty and I appreciate the inspiring story behind the piece. Here’s a closer look at the necklace on:

Show Print Silk Scarf – Value $55.00

The colors in this silk scarf are just gorgeous. The Gift Izzy Meet Our Designer Card doesn’t mention this up and coming designer’s name which I found surprising. The designer is from Istanbul and has created this exclusive piece for Gift Izzy subscribers. It was packaged in a lavender envelope, sealed with a Gift Izzy sticker. The scarf would be perfect worn around your neck, in your hair or tied onto your bag handle. The original scarf that came in my box had some small spots of ink that had run so I reached out to Gift Izzy and they immediately shipped out a perfect replacement by Priority Mail. I’m pleased to report their customer service is fabulous!

Manna Kadar 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow – Value $19.00

This champagne pink blush, highlighter, eyeshadow combo is very pretty. Having products with multiple uses (like this powder) always seem to find their way into my travel bag so I can pack light and still have all bases covered. I like the pearlized finish and I found it had good staying power as well.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my Gift Izzy box this month. The value is $398 which I think is outstanding. I like the hero item (Bulgari Lion Bracelet) but actually think I’ll wear the key necklace more frequently as it’s more my personal style. I think Gift Izzy does a great job of putting quality over quantity. One of the things I love about Gift Izzy is that each item they send could easily be gifted and is always packaged beautifully. This is consistently my favorite women’s lifestyle subscription.

What do you think of this month’s Gift Izzy?

  1. I love Gift Izzy, I gave up on so many other boxes that consistently let me down (Pop Sugar, Box of Style, and FFF to name a few). But I have not been let down once by Gift Izzy, be it price or pieces they hands down make me happy. The necklace has become one of may daily layering items as the length and different chain make a nice addition to my other necklaces. And the bracelet….wow….it is so beautiful and comfortable to wear! I did wear the scarf around my neck one day and in my hair another and both times I was complimented.

    • I’m so glad to hear you’re loving Gift Izzy too! ?

  2. That bracelet is very unique-looking and gorgeous. I would be glad if someone wants to swap it or sell it. 🙂

  3. I really like the bracelet. Anyone get it that wants to swap for something?

  4. I agree – box is a total miss for me, too. And while I really like the idea beyond the key necklace, I would never wear it. Actually I don’t think I know anyone who would.

  5. This is the first Gift Izzy that has been a total miss for me :/ Wish they had not gone with two taste-specific jewelry pieces in this box, as well as a very overdone cosmetic item.

    • My feelings exactly. I love jewelry but neither of those pieces are my style. And that Manna Kadar has been in SO many boxes. I even get them free with purchases now?.

      • I do have to add that I love that a percentage of the sale from the keys goes to a charity. The keys sell for around $40 at a store near me but that charity is a different one.

  6. I just fell in love?

    • If any one wants the scarf, I have it up for swap.
