MyIrelandBox always provides so much information about the products they feature each month!

I always think it’s nice to have more information than less, especially with cultural boxes. Understanding the story behind certain pieces, or how things fit into or reflect the culture at hand makes each item feel more valuable to me.

Of course, next month is St. Patrick’s Day! I can’t wait to see what they put together.

Oscar Wilde Quote Pencil by sixOsix Design – Value $3.80?

I believe this exact design is exclusive to this box, so I linked to a similar item above.

This pencil, featuring a quote from famed Irishman, Oscar Wilde, was wrapped by an Irish artisan, giving it twice the authentic, Irish power!

I’m a big Oscar Wilde fan, but I will say that $3.80 for a pencil does seem awfully steep!

Beeswax Candle by the Dingle Druid – Value $4.50?

This Irish maker doesn’t seem to have a web store, to I linked to a similar product above.

This candle, made of actual beeswax, is so striking! I love how the pattern of rolled-up beeswax looks at once modern and beautifully natural. Even better, the smell is gorgeous. Sweet, deep, and subtle.

Even better, this note is wrapped inside the label of the candle, so you get a bit of insight into Irish culture while you enjoy this bit of rustic decor.

The label itself shares some details about the craft and benefits behind this candle…

Gra Irish Love Print – Value $13.00?

This item is just slightly different than what’s currently available on the Clover Rua site, but I linked to a similar item.

This print features the Irish equivalent of “love” set atop silvery-gray shamrocks and a deep green background. (Consider it an Irish Valentine’s Day surprise!) I like the item though I do wish it had come framed.

On Raglan Road by Gerard Hanberry – Value on Amazon $27.09

This is another cute nod to Valentine’s Day. It’s not the biggest book, though the price on Amazon is pretty high.

Book Summary on Amazon:

This lively account uncovers how the great Irish love songs came to be, and includes engaging biographies of the songwriters and their muses. This is for anyone who ever wondered who the “Galway Girl” was, or if there was a real-life “Nancy Spain.” Learn the often surprising, sometimes bittersweet, but always absorbing stories of the real women who inspired some of the world’s finest love songs.

Lovers of Irish music will love flipping through this hardcover book, which not only features lyrics, but bits of backstory about each tune.

Verdict: This MyIrelandBox was lighter than others I’ve received. In other words, I felt like the pencil and print, while lovely on their own, felt a little underwhelming given the more substantial finds this box has sent along in the past. I did find the candle lovely, and the book provides a fun way for lovers of traditional Irish culture to learn more. The value I estimated was $48.39, which stays true to their promise to match or exceed $45.00. Of course, that value may not match what you end up paying after shipping. And of course, the higher price tag makes the risk of being disappointed with items in the box (like I was with the pencil and print) a bit more impactful. However, if you’re a die-hard fan of Irish culture, are comfortable with the price, and are willing to try a few boxes before you make a hard judgment, I think the uncommon finds in this subscription might surprise and delight you.

What do you think of MyIrelandBox?

  1. I really like that candle! I have never seen anything like it before.

    • It’s lovely isn’t it? It looks really elegant as the wax begins to melt and drip down, as well. Like something from a fairytale! Thanks for reading, Britt 🙂
