popsugar-must-have-december-2016-0016

This jar includes everything you need to make 13 cookies – just add 5 tablespoons of butter, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

popsugar-must-have-december-2016-0017

I think this would make a great hostess gift, and it’s also perfect to have on hand for baking a quick treat. (It’s a good pantry staple too – this jar is good through December 2017.)

Of course, we had to bake them immediately! (Good news, they were super easy to make and only took 8-10 minutes in the oven.)

My husband described these as some the best chocolate chip cookies he’s ever had!

Dessange Top Coat Serum – Value $12

popsugar-must-have-december-2016-0012

This is a very lightweight serum (almost watery) designed to add shine to your hair. I tried this on both damp and dry hair and I was pleased with the results. The scent is fruity and not too strong, and it added shine to my hair without any greasiness or wearing my hair down. (And I only needed one pump of product per application, so this bottle should last months!)

And it is safe for color-treated hair!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $138! I think that’s great for a $39.95 box (and hopefully you grabbed a Black Friday deal and got this box at an even better price!) My favorite item in this box is the tray set, and that alone is worth more than the cost of the box!

I bought gift subscriptions for all the women on my holiday list this past week, and I’m really excited that this will be their first box. A home item that can be used for entertaining, a holiday treat, plus beauty and jewelry/accessory items seem like the perfect mix for a December box. (And while the necklace isn’t something I would have picked out for myself, it’s growing on me!)

  1. Super excited! Thank you for the great review Liz!

  2. I like everything in this box! The tray set isn’t really my thing, but I think my sister would love it! I can’t wait to get it!

  3. Not a very exciting box for me. BUT, I went to the Baublebar website and they have a lot of nice looking jewelry and good prices. They offer FREE standard shipping in the US and no taxes for me in Texas. They have a “12 Days of Christmas” section and I ordered a set of two earrings. Really nice, sparkly, but not gaudy, surgical steel studs for a total of $12.00 Not cheap looking at all, nice since I have long hair and so many studs disappear in my hair. As for the necklace in this box, I think a small charm added to it should dress it up just enough. I’m thinking I need to make a trip to Hobby Lobby. I imagine I can stock up on a number of different style charms. I did the $20 for one box special. A lot of the Popsugar items aren’t my style (nor most friends and family) buy I figured it would all be worth $20 to me. Since it’s the December box I wish they had offered something a little more festive or something New Year Eve.

    • Good thinking! I might add an actual Snowflake. Not being a minimalist in any way. lol Specially at Christmas where more is more!

      • The necklace would make a great backdrop for a snowflake! I might have to get one too. I’ve had a necklace before that I used as a backdrop for all kinds of charms and beads, but it wasn’t this nice. I think it will be fun to come up with different ideas for the necklace.

        • I added a snowflake charm to the pendant and listed it on the swap site. I thought it might be helpful to see what it looks like irl.
          I would have just uploaded a pic here, but that’s not possible of course.

          • I may have just seen it on the swap! And it really does look so much better with a charm added. I like that when winter is over the snowflake can be removed and something else added. There are so many charms and Hobby Lobby has them on sale all the time.

    • Monah thanks for the save! what an awesome Idea, I know I could totally make that work with an extra pendant :)….. and to think I was ready to find a victim to gift it to ;P

      • I hate to gift things that don’t really appear to be a well thought out personal gift. So, I too, am happy I thought of an idea to make the necklace work for me. I’m happy to know my idea works for others.

    • Awesome idea!!! I wasn’t too keen on the necklace as- is, but with an added pendant, YES! Ill be stopping at my Hobby Lobby to see what i can come up with 🙂

    • I’m disappointed that the jewelry is made in China. It actually feels pretty cheap IMO. Worried it will discolor my skin. Was going to gift the necklace to my grandma but she would die over anything not 925 silver lol.

  4. I’m pretty happy with the mix of items. My 3 year old will love the sparkle of the bobby pins, for once there is a lip color that will look good on my skin tone, I love the catch all for my nightstand, my son will enjoy making the cookies with me, and the serum will be great for my daighter’s hair. The only thing I am meh about is the necklace, but I’m more into simple jewelry so I may keep vs gift.

    Overall solid month, especially with the BF deal! First month back, so the year looks promising!

  5. I purchased 15 months of PS with the Black Friday deals and canceled my expiring annuals for Birchbox and GlossyBox and slowly have been canceling recurring for FFF, Boxicharm, Beautyfix, Rachel BOS and finally Sephora. Figured I can hop back if the spoilers are good…

    For $21 a month, even if PS sends me another ridiculous raper jelly flashing watch I will still enjoy the mystery and expectation of the possibilities VS the cash investment …. but this one is particularly good!

  6. Thrilled I subscribed for 3 months. 6 is pushing it. As after the 3rd box, I always wonder…do I like want or need this? What’s the point of re gifting? Thrilled with 3 months I get. This is a great box! Those cookies look fabulous (great neighbor gift BTW), the jewelry tray and cup thing (gorgeous and easily re giftable), the necklace (while not just my taste , comes in a cute gift able thing. It all looks great. Am I disappointed no lip trio from stow away cosmetics? Absolutely but for $20 I cannot complain. Popsugar take my money plz!

    • I subbed for 3 months as well. I normally don’t think popsugar is worth $40 a month but at $20 a month I’m sold. I agree with you on everything except the necklace lol…I seem to be one of the few that like it 🙂

  7. This catch all dishes & the hair pins are my favorite!
    But everything in this 📦 is great!

  8. WTF…Well That’s Fantastic!!!

    • haha love it!

  9. This has got me rather excited that I resubbed with the Black Friday deal!

    It also makes me think that I need to get back into swapping. The makeup that is sent in boxes is always so pretty, but I much prefer lip stains to lipsticks. 🙁

  10. LOVE this so much more than the october box! Glad I took the plunge on black friday.

  11. I’m in love with everything in my first box!

  12. Hate it!! Especially the price I decided to try again since November box looked like a winner. I was hoping December would WOW me. They have been in the game long enough and being one of the more expensive boxes I expected something much more from them. I am now officially over this box I have been burned enough. Seriously look at what is in the box at least the necklace could be sterling silver. Sorry for the rant but I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    • No, you aren’t the only one. I don’t want anything in this box. 🙁 At least I will have some good swapping material, and I am only out $20 for the box.

  13. I’m pretty happy with this box even though I’m not a huge fan of the necklace or lipstick color. I will say that I just recently ordered from bauble bar for the first time and their pieces are really nice for the price. Their packaging was great as well. This was a great deal plus the extra Juara face mask if you got the Black Friday deal!

  14. Liz,

    Thanks for the heads up on the popsugar deal. I love this box. I will use everything except the lipstick.

  15. Yes! Popsugar never disappoints when it comes to their December box! The only item I don’t love is the necklace, but that’s easily giftable. I’m extra excited about the lipstick…and the cookies of course!

  16. I love this whole box! I can’t wait for the necklace!

  17. This is my first Pop Sugar box and I am delighted. I have also ordered November’s box and the Women’s Limited Edition.

    I am looking forward to everything in the box, the bobby pins I will give to my 13 year old, she loves hair accessories. I should get it Thursday.

  18. Totally thrilled. I love the tray combo (and it fills a need for me), and I’ll use everything in there except probably the hair serum. I don’t color my hair, but I can easily pass that off to my sister who just re-dyed hers. I love the hair clips, will totally bake those cookies and I like the necklace, though I’m not sure about Bauble Bar. I’ve been a little disappointed in some of the jewelry quality in the past of PSMH boxes, so I’m eager to get my hands on this piece and get a sense for myself.

    • Something that is safe for color treated hair doesn’t mean its made for color treated hair. Anyone can use this.

  19. Seeing this review just brought up the anger I still have for this company. I don’t like being negative nor do I write many negative reviews. When they offered their “past” boxes I ordered three at one time for a total of $75.00. Then I stared reading the reviews when people started receiving their boxes. They were complaining about receiving duplicate boxes and I panicked. Surely, I wouldn’t receive three of the same box! But low and behold, I did. Three of the boxes with the bingo set and I was so upset. I wrote to them and they offered to send me three products to make up for my disappointment. I’ll stop there because I received three pieces of absolute junk. I remember one of the pieces was to go over a small pillow. It was, simply put, ugly. $75.00 dollars down the drain. Next time, I’ll donate my extra money to charity and at least have a good feeling instead of being completely let down.

    • I actually donated my bingo games. 🙂 You could do that if you’d like!

    • I ordered 4 mystery boxes and they were all the same. And they were filled with pretty lame items.
      Enough people must have complained because now there is a disclosure that if you order more than one mystery box you may get all the same. The first time I ordered a mystery box. I ordered 2 – they were both different & I loved every thing. So the next time I ordered 4 and of course there was nothing I really was excited about except the phone charger because I had skipped that month and wanted one. Everything else I am giving away as prizes for BINGO at a Christmas Party 😉

  20. I am actually pretty impressed, I think it is a pretty nice box for $20.

  21. I’m super excited to receive all these items for $20! Here’s the price breakdown I calculated for each item based on $138 retail value and the $20 cost for me…
    Ring Dish $3.33
    Catchall $6.38
    Pendant $4.06
    Bobby Pins $1.45
    Lipstick $2.03
    Cookie Mix $1.01
    Hair Serum $1.74

    I couldn’t be happier with this box for these prices!!!

    • I got it for $20…so thank you for breaking it down…I love that kind of information when I think I don’t like one of the items.

      • This is a good way to look at it. I saw the first spoiler when I bought the MSA 3-month deal, and the ring dish and catchall had a higher retail value than the entire 3-month subscription so I couldn’t pass it up. I figured that even if I hate everything else they send to me, I will still get my money’s worth. I’m not thrilled about the bobby pins or hair serum (I haven’t dyed my hair in years and the bobby pins seem a little young for me), and I have mixed feelings about the necklace but still think I’ll wear it sometimes. Other than the ring dish and catchall, I’m excited about the lipstick and cookie mix!

        • You should be able to use the serum even if you have virgin hair. They still work well with hair that is dry in general or seasonally moisture deprived like in winter.

          UV protection is a good thing for all hair types.

          • As it turns out, the necklace has grown on me, but I might try to swap the hair serum. I’ve gotten a decent amount of hair oils recently so it seems excessive right now. I’ll consider using it though based on your mention of the UV protection. Might be good to keep around for the summer especially. I also thought about this in terms of the retail value of everything I like. The only items I’m not that excited about now are the bobby pins (but might still use them) and the hair serum, and the retail value of all of the other items equals $116, which is well beyond the $20 per box I spent on the 3-month BTBF deal! Totally worth it.

      • You’re welcome! I do a price analysis for most of my boxes. Helps me to see if I’m getting a good or bad deal. I thought it would be good to post this one since it’s such a great deal.

    • Well if u put it that way 😆 #winning
      Not to mention gas and time spent shopping 🙂

    • This is great, it really puts the box in perspective.

    • Wow!! Pretty sure not even Marshall’s/TJMaxx/Ross (the usual suspects) could beat this prices.

    • Thanks for doing this breakdown – what a great value. I took a gamble on getting 2 boxes for Dec-Feb because I set up an initial 3-month gift sub that couldn’t be extended (well it probably could have but I didn’t want to deal with customer service). So excited for this box and the giftable items.

      And fantastic review as always 🙂

      • You’re welcome! I think it’s such a great deal for $20/box. I also just bought the 3 month deal.

    • Thank you for doing this price breakdown! It puts into perspective how much I hate that necklace and I’m no longer disappointed 😉

    • LOVE your $20 breakdown Lisa !

      PERFECT way to look at the deals even if you HATE the necklace. You spend more than those prices in Targets dollar sections! I got an extra just for GIFTS to have on hand or last min. $20 well spent I think

  22. Not sure if this has already been pointed out but the tray and dish are showing “Not Food Safe.” Bummer, that would have been a good alternative to a jewelry dish.

    • You could still use them for wrapped food, like Hershey Kisses/other candy 🙂

  23. I love POPSUGAR boxes! So glad I took advantage of the unbelievable BF deals.

  24. I love it!! I will use everything. I’m pretty resourceful in using up just about everything I get in my sub boxes. Nothing goes to waste! Examples…..

    Hair serum= awesome to polish granite countertops super shiny and smells great

    The skinny popsugar black and white scarf = tied around my luggage handle when I traveled to spot luggage on conveyer (got lots of compliments)

    sugar scrubs I don’t love on my body= polish bathtub and sink or scrub feet

    dry shampoo= spray in my gym shoes and smells great/ absorbs sweat

    Shampoo I don’t like for my hair= bubble bath

    Conditioner= shaving cream for my legs

    Hairsprays= keep in purse or glove compartment for anti-static on skirts or to remove ink from anything!

    bracelets/necklaces/rings= incorporate into Christmas gift tags

    The round Odeme dish I will probably use as a cat food dish, lol

    • OMG your cleaning ideas are brilliant!

    • I LOVE the dry shampoo life hack and will be totally trying that tonight. Thanks!

      • Haha me too! Love the cat food dish idea too, very cool.

    • Dosh may have lead? Not sure as it says it is not for food.

    • OMG I’m totally going to try the hair serum on my countertops! Great idea & I definitely have plenty! FYI I used a sample of scentsy countertop spray today & it smells horrible! Smelled great in the bottle but horrible on the counter.

    • yes, yes, YES to all this! One of the reasons I’ve enjoyed sub boxes so much is I’ve been willing to branch out and try different ways to use the items. That way, even if I don’t LOVE something, it still gets used and has value. I’ve never understood people getting so upset and saying they were just going to throw away a certain item because it wasn’t exactly what they wanted or expected. Free your mind! It’s much more fun! Also, if the December box is any indication of what we’ll see in the coming months, the better than black friday/black friday deals were a STEAL! I’m thrilled to be locked in for a year.

    • Don’t use the dish for cat food – it is not food safe.

      • Thanks!

    • Yay! Love it! I repurpose shampoo and conditioner like you do too but the hair oil and dry shampoo ideas are brilliant!

    • While it would be super cute as a cat dish, it’s not food safe so probably not worth any risk, however minimal, for kitty. Sorry to put a damper on your good idea!

    • Wow, I LOVE your alternate ideas for uses of items!! Any suggestions on what to do with bath bombs and bath salts, if I am not a bath-taker? Would love to do something with all of them that I have!

      • Hi Jennifer!
        Are you on the swap site? Bath bombs and bath salts are very popular items.

  25. Personally, I think November was a much better box. I love, love, love the jewelry tray/dish (even though I think it’s kind of BS that PS is counting it as two separate items), but almost everything else is a bit of a letdown. To think that we went from a $50 Kendra Scott bracelet to a $28 necklace in one month…smh. Well now I know why they waited so long to release any more spoilers- because they knew the jewelry tray/dish were the only high value products this time around!

    I’ll probably end up keeping everything anyway. The lipstick is a pretty color (and it’s matte), and the bobby pins are pretty cute (and yes, the necklace is cool-looking, as well). I’ll probably gift the chocolate chip cookies though!

  26. This is my first popsugar, do they usually arrive early or late in the month?

    • Many people are getting theirs next week, from what I’ve heard. Some have even said their boxes have already shipped! Personally, my box still hasn’t shipped yet :/

    • I ordered two this month, one is supoosed to arrive on Friday and the other one hasn’t shipped yet.

    • The tracking for my box shows that it will be delivered on 12/10 and it was shipped on 12/2. My boxes don’t usually ship that early from PS

  27. This is my first ever Pop Sugar box and I’m crazy excited. This looks way better to me than the Fab Fit Fun boxes I’ve been getting. I’m psyched about the catchall for my vanity, the lipstick, the bobby pins. Everything looks great.

    • I’m so happy to hear you are thrilled with your first ever box! What a way to start 🙂

  28. Oh man, the last thing I need is another lipstick, but I’m such a sucker for interesting packaging. I should gift it but I kind of want it for myself… Maybe it will look less cute in person??

  29. I took the plunge with the 3 month deal a couple of weeks ago, and while I’m not totally disappointed in this one, I’m not super excited. The bobby pins aren’t really my style…that lip color will never work for me, and I don’t think I can use the hair stuff. The I’m glad the necklace is silver, but I’m going to have to see it in person. So…I’m glad I didn’t pay full price. Looking onward to January!

    • Yeah, at least it’s not yet another gold necklace. You made a good point!

  30. I’m most excited about the cookie mix tbh but I’m pretty hungry right now, so maybe later I will be able to focus on the other items in the box.

  31. I’m glad this is the December box because I plan to gift most of the items. The cookie mix will be a hostess gift. The bobby pins and hair serum will be stocking stuffers. I’m on the fence about the necklace – I’ll have to decide what to do with it after I see it in person. All in all, this is worth the ~$20 I paid, but it’s definitely not the best box.

  32. This is my first PSMH box and it’s ok for me but not great. I like the tray, but really dislike the necklace, and don’t think that lip color will work for me. The other items are fine but not really exciting.

  33. Unsolicited subjective comments: I took the plunge on this box because I really liked the matching tray and dish, and they remain my favorite items in this box. No real exciting surprises, though.

    I like the look of the necklace and am really glad it is silver, so I will probably keep that. I’ll probably also keep the lipstick because it is a pretty color, and will try the hair serum even though I’m not too excited about them. The bobby pins and the cookie mix will be gifted. Overall, it’s a nice box for the value, but I really didn’t need any of it… bad me!

  34. Although I do wear silver, I think the necklace is a little too minimalist for me. Supposedly the white half represents snow on the ground?
    The lipstick will be swapped as I only wear pale pink lippie.
    Loving the vanity/bar set and the hair shine serum!

  35. I’m so frustrated that they’re now giving this box away with an LE purchse!! When will they stop punishing me for buying early and when will I learn my lesson 😡😡😡

    • What? ugh that IS frustrating!

    • That is frustrating. Hopefully you got in on the Black Friday sale so it was only $20

      • I did but I’d totally love another free one for gifts to go along with my LE box!!

    • I was frustrated by that too. 🙁 When will they learn not to upset their base like that?

  36. This will be my first Popsugar box ever and while I’m not super excited about, I’m not disappointed either. The necklace and lipstick will for sure be going up for swap and the bobby pins will be gifted, but I like the other items. Is it sad that I’m really looking forward to the cookie mix?

  37. This will be my first Popsugar box and I am so excited!! Love it!!

    • Mine too and I can’t wait to get mine, either!

  38. I like it- but I am a little surprised they sent hair finishing products in both the LE and the main box. I like how “minimalist” everything is.

  39. Wow, wow, wow! What a box! I first tried Dessange when it was put in a Target box and found I loved it and will definitely use the hair serum. The necklace is totally me (but I wear silver, gold, long, short, modern, classic, bold, dainty, so I’m easy to please). I almost bought a cookie jar like that at Trader Joe’s this past weekend. Glad I didn’t. I like that it only makes 13 cookies otherwise it would sit on a shelf for a “special” occasion. I am still in shock that I got this box for under $20. I’ve cancelled a lot of subs this month for 2017 and am so happy that PS is one I am keeping through next year.

  40. I’m so happy with this box! I did the BF deal which made me get dupes for December (originally a gift sub) so I was anxiously awaiting to see what would be in it and now I’m pleasantly surprised that all of the products work out for me as having 2 sets with the exception of the necklace and I’m sure I can gift that to someone 😊

  41. Will use all items in box, for once nothing up for swap with either the mini or main box. Win Win today! Thank you for the review, can’t wait to make the cookies!

  42. Awesome box!! Glad I picked Gold for my Fabfitfun Winter box, now I have a gold and silver necklace for the holidays 😀 Love everything in this box! It’s my first Popsugar as a subscriber (i did the gilt to pick up some older boxes) but this has me really excited for the rest of the year! So glad I took advantage of the Black Friday deals they were offering!!

  43. Wonderful box. I wish the necklace came in gold.

  44. Merry Christmas to me!!! I love that it’s a silver necklace. I wear silver 95% of the time.

    • I love that it is finally silver jewelry, but why did they have to pick such and ugly piece? Can’t we get some silver-toned Kendra Scott items? How hard/expensive it that?

  45. Wow. I really hate that necklace. I never knew I could have such strong feelings about an inanimate object so I guess I learned something new about myself today. Everything else is great though!

    • Lmao me too, just didnt have the courage to express this alone 😂. Im sure some people really like it…but im sitting here hoping it looks better in person.
      Im usually suuuuppper easy to please with jewelry 😁

      • Me too…not digging the necklace at all and sitting here thinking who I can possibly gift it to without looking like I have bad taste 😂

        • Same! I dont think I can even gift it, the recipient would judge me hard for it xD

        • That’s exactly where I am too!

          • Thank you!!!

          • This is a great idea! I had an unexpected giving crisis last year, but was able to recover, I was going to use my FFF candle as the emergency gift this year, but I think this necklace is a better idea for weight and ease of transport alone. I just hope I am not judged too harshly for my lack of taste, as I really dislike this necklace.

          • Hilarious! And true! I always keep a candle in the gift closet for emergencies! Haha!

          • I can’t stop laugh 🙂
            Hahaha hilarious

          • HaHa… love it! Thanks for sharing!

    • True confession? I love the necklace. But taste is subjective, and you’re all cracking me up :-p.
      Please don’t judge me too harshly if you see me wearing it!

      • I think I like it too. I plan to wear it with a nice outfit and I think I can pull it off.

      • I had mixed feelings about it when I saw it on the post, but I have worn it twice since getting it with slightly oversized sweaters with rounded/crew necklines, skinny jeans, and knee-high leather boots, and it actually works well! But I enjoyed that SNL video for sure, lol. I’ve definitely regifted stuff before. I think I’m actually an easy person to shop for, but I’ve gotten some strange gifts, like a corkcicle, when I don’t like white wine. Anything that doesn’t seem like a good fit for a friend, I donate it as a prize at small fundraisers! But I think I’ll actually keep everything in this box. 🙂

        • Hey Ladies!
          You know, the way that you are describing the way that you are wearing the necklace is making me reconsider swapping mine when it gets here. I pretty much only have a couple of chokers that I wear constantly, and I think I need a change.
          Thanks for the great ideas!

  46. I love it! It’s my first box and I gifted one to my mom and now realize I should have gifted one to my sister during the BF sale! GRRR!

  47. This is a really nice box – even happier as I took advantage of the $100 off 6 month deal. I really like everything – the necklace I will be putting up for swap as I can’t really see myself wearing it but I still think it is pretty. My sister would love those bobby pins so I think I will try to swap for another set because I want to keep them for myself! Thanks for the great review!

    • I’ll be swapping the bobby pins if you are interested!

      • Yes! Thanks! What is your swap name so I can look out for it? Mine is JennM

  48. I love this box !! I normally only wear white gold/silver and love that necklace !!! I think this the first jewelry item I’m excited about. The only thing I won’t use is the lipstick but it is a really nice color. 😊

  49. I love absolutely everything in this box! Won’t be swapping a thing!!

    • Yay!!! 🙂

  50. Hmmmm I like the trays; but would never pay $67 for. I hate the necklace; but that’s just a personal preference. The box just looks light. I *might* use the cookie mix; but I never used the last two I got in boxes. And the lipstick shade looks pretty. Just kind of underwhelming to me.

    • Im with you, i dont think the trays are enough of a big ticket item to fill the rest with light stuff, as i could probablg get a similat set for about $10 at marshalls. It needed at least one more hit piece ….
      Like, november had the basket AND the table runner= about $20 at marshalls for something comparable so worth it bc everything else is a freebie. And i think kendra scott bracelet >>> bauble bar necklace
