Now, onto the items!
The Cambridge Satchel Company, Tiny Satchel – Value $95
This is a POPSUGAR exclusive design!
It is made with real leather and has an adjustable strap:
The quality of this piece is seriously impressive. (Exactly what I would expect from The Cambridge Satchel Company.)
And it comes with a dustbag:
Here it is on to give you a better sense of scale:
It’s tiny but I could fit the essentials:
iPhone 7, lip balm, and hand sanitizer – check!
Pehr Designs Charcoal Muskoka Throw – Value $136
This is one of my favorite subscription box items of all time!
This throw blanket is made with 100% cotton flannel. It’s not a thick blanket, but it still has a good weight to it, and it will definitely keep you warm! (Yes, to all things flannel!)
It measures 50″L x 60″W. And I’ll hold it up for you to give you a better sense of scale:
And if you’re thinking it’s great to see Liz hold the blanket up, but a puppy would be a much better (and cuter) way to show scale, you are in luck!
Buckles LOVES this blanket, too! (After we took this picture he didn’t want to get off of it!)
Louis Sherry 6-Piece Pink Truffle Collection – Value $22.50
This is the most beautiful chocolate box I’ve ever seen! The box is a domed reusable tin, and I think it would be a beautiful desk accessory. It has a retro-vibe, and I love the pink and gold colors.
Now onto the actual chocolates!
This set includes 6 truffles:
This presentation is gorgeous!
Here are all the flavors:
Fleur de Sel Caramel:
Coffee Costa D’Oro:
My husband, Eric, is the official POPSUGAR Must Have taste tester in our house, (he loves this role), and he also loved the chocolates, too! He had a hard time picking a favorite but said he liked the Strawberry Romanoff the most.
Simpatico Snow Hobnail Reed Diffuser – Value $48
Yay! Another home item! I love the winter wonderland packaging of this box too – perfect for gifting if you can part with it!
The set includes the diffuser oil, the hobnail glass, and reed sticks.
The scent is perfect for winter, too. It’s a sweet peppermint with a blend of vanilla – I love it!
I think this bottle design should go with just about any decor, too.
R+Co Tinsel Smoothing Oil – Value $24
I love that even the hair oil is matching the holiday theme! I really like the R+Co products I’ve sampled before and this one is just as good! It has a fruity/citrusy scent, and the formula is lightweight, so its adds shine and fights frizz without making your hair look oily.
I LOVE getting palettes in boxes! (I can never have enough!)
And I always appreciate when palettes come with instructions for achieving different looks.
This palette has a magnetic flap closure and a combo brush with a blender brush on one end and a liner brush on the other end.
These shades are very wearable for me, too. (There are 6 matte and 6 shimmer shades.)
Here are the shades swatched:
The pigment is good, too. (Some of the lighter shades don’t show up too well on my skin, but will work great as base shades.)
Verdict: This is one of my favorite POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Boxes of all time! It has an amazing value (about $360), and every item feels special, too! I think the balance of items is perfect (2 Home items, 2 Beauty items, 1 Fashion item and 1 Food item), and there is a good mix of classic and unexpected items.
