Each month, this subscription gives away a high-value item to a limited number of subscribers. It looks like next month, just one lucky person will be getting a Nest Learning Thermostat in place of a box. I know several homeowners who love their Nest, so fingers crossed this arrives in the mail next month!

Beach Towel – Value $10.00?

I was in need of a beach towel this year, so this shell-printed towel is a welcome sight!

 

 

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

The towel is 28 x 58 inches, so it’s pretty standard. The quality isn’t amazing (it’s a bit on the thin side), and I noticed that the manufacturer, as noted on the care tag on the towel, is CVS (as in the pharmacy). It’s not available via their site, though, so I took a guess at the value, based on other styles I found online. A cushy towel, this is not. But it’s perfectly practical for a day at the pool or beach.

Magnetic Dry Erase Board – Value $5.99?

 

I couldn’t find this specific item on the Board Dudes’ online shop, so I linked to something of a similar size and shape to give an idea of value. I love leaving notes (or to-do lists, or grocery lists, or reminders) on dry erase boards, so this smaller-sized board is going to come in a lot of handy to me.

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

The 8.5 x 11 inch board comes with a dry-erase marker, a set of mounting stickers, and a set of magnets, if you’d prefer to stick this board to a metal cabinet or a fridge.

The marker comes out a bit more gray than black, but that’s no big deal. There’s also no eraser component. But the board is magnetic (and comes with a magnet), so you can tack notes or receipts or coupons to it. I’m so excited to add this handy tool to my day. I just have to decide whether I’ll use it at work or at home!

Talbott Teas Field of Purple Flowers, 1.20 oz (15 sachets) – Value $16.00

$16.00 is a lot for tea, so this must be some really high-quality stuff. This is a whole leaf tea, packaged in pyramid-shaped sachets (which I know is the shape tea connoisseurs have recently been lauding).

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

This is basically a green tea with touches of other floral flavors, but I found it to have the slightest notes of a traditional Earl Gray (maybe because of the cornflower in the mix?). It’s a fresh, grassy taste that more importantly, looks gorgeous in the cup.

I’m wild about the cornflower petals sitting amidst the green and brown tea leaves. It’s so pretty!

Spray Pump – Value $5.00?

I had no idea what this was at first, so thank goodness there are instructions printed right on the device!

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

To use this misting device, fill it first with water, then pump the bottom until you feel the pressure build.

Once the pressure is high, you can push the button on the top of the bottle to release a consistent, strong mist out of the nozzle. I’d imagine this would feel great on a hot day (maybe at an amusement park). Personally, I used it to water my succulent plants—since they don’t need a ton of water, being able to spritz them with a quick, dew-like mist is perfect.

Instant Salad – Value $12.99

 

 

This subscription often includes one or two really as-seen-on-TV-type items. This slotted dome is a great example.

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

This plastic contraption is the size of a big salad bowl. The idea is that you lift the slotted part off of the lid-like base, and set a head of lettuce (or any other ingredients) inside. Slide your knife through the slots of the dome to chop the veggies, then treat the device like a colander to rinse and wash what’s inside.

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

You could even use the lid as a plate once you’re all set to go. This tool seems a little excessive to me, since chopping salad greens already isn’t too difficult a task (plus, most of the salad ingredients I get these days come pre-washed and chopped in those bagged salad kits). But it’s clever, that’s for sure. I’d at least use it as a colander!

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

Here are the directions. Note that the dome part twists around so that you can cut your veggies in multiple directions before you flip the bowl over and serve your salad.

Electric Hurricane Lamp – Value $15.00?

Lastly, there’s this glass lamp, which runs on an electric candle.

I couldn’t find this specific piece online, but I’d venture it’s about $15.00 based on how similar electric lamps are priced.

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

The lamp is battery operated, which means there are no worries about a candle running out or having something burning in your home (if you’ve got curious or klutzy pets around, this is a reassuring feature).

Check out my review of the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome for July 2017!

You can, of course, sit whatever you’d like on the base. If you’re in the mood to burn a candle, this should work just fine.

This simple lamp is actually quite big (it’s at least a foot tall and about 6 inches wide). It doesn’t provide a lot of light, but it’s a nice touch on an end table, or a bedside table (if you like sleeping with a little bit of light in the room).

Verdict: This Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome was pretty solid. For $24.99 (plus free U.S. shipping), I estimated that I got about $65.00-worth of products. Most of them are pretty useful, if a little odd (like the salad tool and the mister). I’m very glad to have gotten the towel, and I’m always happy to add to my tea collection. It’s always a risky box to get, but this month’s box was more hit than miss to me.

  1. Any positive comments have to have been written by the employees or owner of “That Daily Deal” because they don’t ship orders anymore. They take your money then a month or 2 later you realize they’re never going to send you what you ordered & paid for & you have to go thru the pain of contacting your Credit Card Company and getting them to make “That Daily Deal” to refund your money. They’re running a SCAM

  2. somebody please tell me how to cancel this subscription since it is supposed to be incredibly easy to do so but doesn’t tell you anywhere. thank you.

    • Under account settings, its way at the bottom under suspend. 🙂

  3. Love the idea of this box. Wish there was something like it in Australia!

  4. This is the first month of MMB where I actually could use every item they included (I just bought a salad chopper the other day!)

  5. I received the exact same items in my box and actually liked several of them. If I receive items that I don’t like/need I can always find someone I know that will enjoy them. I really like this box as it’s fun to get an actual mystery box and the price is worth the risk in my opinion!

    • I agree! At first, I was like, oh boy… this could get weird… but I’ve ended up using so many things I’ve received via this subscription, I can’t believe it. This box was really awesome in that respect – so many helpful, seasonal odds and ends! Glad you’re enjoying the sub, Kris, and thanks for commenting 🙂

  6. Not a bad box. I agree most of the items are useful in some way. I’m loving the $10 doggie bag they offer!!

    • I also have the mini box for dogs and it’s become one of my favorite and best value subs!

  7. Anna, this is so funny! We should split this box–everything you are ever “on the fence” about are the only things I would be interested in! (Mist and salad) Its gapped a couple other times, too! Like your reviews!

    • *happened not gapped

      • Haha, when our powers combine, Jennifer, we are Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome’s ideal customer 🙂 Thanks so much for reading! Now I’m curious to see what we’ll like/dislike next month!!!
