Now, on to the items!
Amazon Echo Dot – Value $49
We have an Amazon Echo already, and I was thrilled to get the dot as well – this is one of those products that once you have one, you want more for other rooms in your house!
If you aren’t familiar, you can use the Amazon Echo/Alexa tools to do all sorts of things by voice command. My typical requests:
- “Alexa, what’s the news?”
- “Alexa, play Pandora station _____”
- “Alexa, turn living room lights down to 10%”
(That last one is for when Eric and I are being super lazy and don’t want to get off the couch. 🙂 )
I know I’m only scratching the surface on how to use Alexa, so please comment with your favorite ways to use this tool with more ideas! (And check out this CNET article about great ways to use Alexa.)
The size is small, too – kind of like a hockey puck, so it’s easy to hide just about anywhere.
Tesla X Arc Candle Lighter – Value $30
This is one of those products that I didn’t know I needed – but now that I have it I love it! (Everyone who has seen it has been equally impressed, too!)
It’s a rechargeable taser that is designed to light candle wicks:
The future of candle lighting is here! (I’m half kidding, but seriously, this thing is awesome!)
Also, looking for a fun prank gift for the holidays that everyone will actually like? You can tell people you got them a Tesla X!
Chef’s Circle Digital Kitchen Scale – Value $20 (Retail Value Listed $50)
I have to admit, I’m not the type of chef who needs precise measurements (AKA I’m more of the toss the whole bag of frozen veggies in a pan “chef”), so this isn’t something that’s a good fit for me.
But it’s a very sleek design, and would be great for precise recipe measurements, or anyone who uses portion control in their diet.
(The digital display provides measurements in grams, pounds, ounces or kilograms.)
D.L. & Co. Cobalt Woods Candle – Value $40
First, this packaging! So classy and perfect for gifting! The blue faux snakeskin print is embossed, and the D.L. & Co. label is actual metal!
This Cobalt Woods scent is described as “radiant greens and brilliant wild herbs combine with sparkling marine aldehydes, warm florals, ambered woods and enduring touches of cool white musk.”
It’s 14 ounces and has a burn time of about 40 hours.
The scent is clean, and I love the blue glass vessel – very classy all around!
Pebble Verto Portable Battery Pack –
Value $10 UPDATE: Value $25
This battery bank will charge an iPhone 2 times before needed to recharge.
It comes with adapters for different phones/devices, too. (If your phone/tablet charges with a USB cord, you are good!)
I have a few battery banks thanks to subscription boxes now, so this isn’t the most exciting item for me, but I love the matte finish and neoprene case:
This is going in my carry-on suitcase right now so that I don’t forget to bring a battery pack next time I travel!
Refresh Flavor Infusing Flask – Value $20 (Retail Value Listed $50)
This is a double walled stainless steel bottle with a BPA-free plastic infuser basket. If you aren’t familiar with these types of bottles, they are perfect for infusing water with flavor from berries, lemon, limes, mint, etc.
I have a few of these bottles thanks to subscription boxes, but I think this one is hands down the sleekest design.
And the mouth is wide for ice, too.
Rustico Leather Travel Bundle – Value $63
The leather notebook is a leather cover with an elastic band, and you can swap in a new notebook whenever you need one!
The leather wrap is perfect for holding your various cords/earbuds in place, and it has a pocket for any small items:
The notebook fits in nicely, too:
The leather quality is impressive in both this wrap and the notebook. It definitely has that rugged, rustic vibe!
Verdict: This box has a value of about
$232! UPDATE: $247! At the $139 price, (even without the $15 coupon), I think the value is great. The curation is outstanding with this box – it always feels like unboxing the best gift ever. And the wooden box itself is really well made and a great storage box.
Even though there were a few items that weren’t for me, or that I’ve seen in subscription boxes before, this box still impressed me! (And, seriously, that candle lighter = amazing!)
