On the back of the card, MissionCute shares a little bit about the month’s featured charity. This month, it’s Community Pregnancy Center in Anchorage, Alaska.

5 x 7 Best Day Print – Listed Value $9.00

While I love this quote, especially at this time of the year, I feel like $9.00 is a bit too high for what this item is. This print appears on a postcard-style card, and it doesn’t come with a matte, frame, or other more sophisticated setting. It’s a cute design, but the way it’s presented makes it seem like a $3.00 or $4.00 item at best.

Mavi Band Headband – Value $12.99

The info card lists this item’s value as $14.99, which is also what it retails for. At the time of writing this review, this particular style was on sale for $12.99.

This headband is essentially a patterned grosgrain ribbon with a grippy material on the back. There’s an adjustable section of the band, too, so that you can custom-size the headband. The idea of all of this is to create a headband that won’t slip, nor hug your head so tightly that it’s uncomfortable.

The adjustable section works like a bra strap would, so it was easy to adjust to where I wanted it to be. The headband did stay in place while I putzed around the house doing chores, but I wonder if it’d hold up during a workout or something more intense. I NEVER seem to have luck with headbands, I think the shape of my head just doesn’t agree with them, as weird as that sounds! Given the amount of headband “technology” going on here, I’d bet the average person would experience some serious staying power from this accessory!

Cheers Gold Foil Cocktail Napkins – Listed Value $8.00

These ombre napkins caught my eye with their metallic lettering and cute color combo. There are about 20, which means they’d be great for supplying a small party.

Since they’d be perfect for New Year’s Eve, I do kind of wish they would’ve come in an earlier box. That said, they do offer a great excuse to host another party!

Why You’ll Bloom Gift Book by Bloom Planners – Value $9.95

This little book is meant to be filled out and given to a friend or special someone to help them be inspired to bloom this year.

Each page has a prompt for you to fill out about your recipient. There are 50 altogether.

With its pastel colors and swirly, whimsical shapes, I’ll admit that this Mission Cute find might be just a bit too cute for my tastes. Still, what a charming gesture it would be to give this to someone you care about. If you’ve made a resolution to be a better friend, or rekindle a faded friendship, this exercise could be a great starting point.

Winter Plaid Tote by Viv & Lou – Listed Value $14.00

I looked for this item on the Viv & Lou site, but couldn’t find it, nor any items that quite matched it. Most of the bags on the site are larger than this one, which is only about big enough to hold a paperback novel.

It zips closed and has a lightweight tan lining to it. Given the icy pastel palette reflected in the other items in the box, the dark, forest-like hues of this bag seemed a bit out of place. But it’ll match my muted winter wardrobe well!

This bag would be great for carrying makeup or other smaller accessories. Or, if you’re in the mood for snacking, perhaps tote along a…

Raspberry Fig Bar – Value $0.50

These soft bars are so tasty. Fig Bars are a non-GMO, healthier alternative to other on-the-go snacks, so they’re great for stashing in your purse in case you get hungry when out and about.

This sweet, fruity bar is just as satisfying as a certain fig-filled cookie you may be familiar with, but far more wholesome.

I love that this was a surprise in the box, too! Even if you’ve resolved to stick to a healthier diet this year, you can still indulge in this goodie!

Verdict: This MissionCute box was very (you guessed it) cute! I liked that the items all subtly nodded towards resolutions or 2017 inspiration, and I appreciated the special treat! The value I estimated is around $54.00, which is over the $39.00 price. The only item I think was off in terms of pricing was the print, though the headband was more expensive than I’d expect (though it is a handmade specialty item).

What do you think of this month’s MissionCute Deluxe Box?

  1. I can’t wear many stretchy headbands 🙁 they’re usually too big, and just slide off

  2. I get the mini and i’ve liked the past several boxes, but this one was a miss for me. The mini didn’t come with the tote or napkins and had a different headband design (I think that was all the differences). I don’t do headbands (unless specialty ones for special occasions) and I don’t have anyone to use the bloom book on. I guess the bloom book would make a good mother’s day gift (or for a daughter but that doesn’t apply to me) or a graduation gift for a girl (I don’t know anyone of that age).
