Farm Momma December 2017 Review

Farm Momma December 2017 Booklet

The vibe of this box gives me so much pleasure. Farm Momma, Jess, prides herself on supporting small businesses with the items she chooses and takes great care in how she packages each item. The information card lists the vendors and artisans included in the box, but no retail values or further information.

Farm Momma December 2017 Note Farm Momma December 2017 Note2

The owner of Farm Momma, Jess, frequently includes a little-handwritten note in her boxes which is a thoughtful touch.

Farm Momma December 2017 Christmas Farm Momma December 2017 Christmas2

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Ornament

This sweet little chalkboard ornament has a rustic charm to it. I like the red ribbon for hanging it on our tree and the green branches decorating the trim. The back of the ornament is stamped with a rooster, pig, and cow standing on each other’s backs reminding me of the Bremen Town Musicians folktale.

Farm Momma December 2017 Snowflake Farm Momma December 2017 Snowflake2 Farm Momma December 2017 Snowflake3

Pine and Sparrow Snowflake Ornament – Estimated Value $5.00

This ornament resembles a gift tag and is made of pained wood. I found the silver painted snowflake to be off center and poorly drawn. While I appreciate handmade gifts and how their charm lies in the fact that they’re not “perfect” or mass-produced I also expect some level of artisanship that this ornament just didn’t possess in my opinion. I wasn’t able to find this exact design online, but I did a price estimate based off of similar products I found online.

Farm Momma December 2017 Tree Farm Momma December 2017 Tree2

Rustic Occasions Reclaimed Wooden Tree – Estimated Value $5.00

Based on the value of much larger reclaimed wooden pieces on the Rustic Occasions Etsy page, I estimate the value of this tree to be around $5.00. While I like the roughed up rustic feel of the tree I didn’t love the bright white paint spot that seemed to be covering up some blemish. It looked a bit like when you use White-Out to fix a mistake on cream colored paper.

Farm Momma December 2017 Recipe

Bonus Item: Chocolate Crinkle Cookie Recipe

Farm Momma’s own Mama, Terry Farnsworth, provided her recipe to make chocolate crinkle cookies. They sound delicious!

Farm Momma December 2017 Dish Farm Momma December 2017 Dish2

Trinket Dish

This small trinket dish with a gold rim and the word “hello” is about 3 inches in diameter. I’m currently using it to hold rings on my dresser. It didn’t seem to fit the Christmas theme like the rest of the box, but I do like the dish very much.

Farm Momma December 2017 Peeking Farm Momma December 2017 Peeking2 Farm Momma December 2017 Peeking3

No Peeking Ornament by Six Twenty Two – Estimated Value $5.00

Etsy seller Six Twenty Two makes hand-painted wooden signs. This small No Peeking sign came with a loop so it can be hung from your tree, cabinet pull or doorknob. The Etsy shop is on a break right now so I do not know if these are still available or their retail value.

Farm Momma December 2017 Egg Farm Momma December 2017 Egg2

Egg Ornament

Farm Momma owner, Jess, made these egg ornaments herself. They feature a patterned wooden egg shape, a faux evergreen type wreath and a ribbon bow at the bottom. The ornament has a great farmhouse vibe and looks great hanging next to the chicken ornament included in the November Farm Momma box.

Farm Momma December 2017 Stocking

Fabric Stocking

This gray and white plaid stocking has a large fuzzy pompom. It doesn’t have any tag so I’m not sure of the maker or value.

Paper Tags

These patterned paper tags don’t have any literature with them so I’m not sure if they are made by Farm Momma herself or from another vendor. They are a cute handmade touch to add to holiday presents.

Verdict: Farm Momma was packaged beautifully again with many items individually wrapped. This box costs $31.49 (free shipping to the US) and it is difficult to give it a value this month since so many items were difficult to find online. Of the two Christmas themed boxes from Farm Momma I preferred the November box over this one.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the January box, which ships around the 15h!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $31.49 a month, which is an average of $3.94 per item for the 8 items I received this month (not including the bonus recipe card).

  1. I was so excited to order the January box after seeing a few posts from farm momma on instagram. I was definitely disappointed in the box. I agree with the review on more filler than items. I love supporting small shops and I live having something unique and special to display in my home from them. Not one item in the box was something I would have ever purchased on my own. Most looked like they were made in a rush and the value was not there at all. I will not be ordering another box, I’ll stick to ordering specific items from small shops instead.

  2. You wrote a very nice review. I don’t think I could have haha.

  3. Kinda odd that so many of the ornaments were pine-themed. Seems like they would just blend in to the tree and not really stand out.

  4. 5 out of 7.5 items are cheap looking, poorly made, off center etc. I’d be irritated and disappointed if I purchased this box. I’ve read previous reviews on this sub, and while the value isn’t there, some things being handmade and overall well curated, I was considering it. But, this box puts me firmly at no.

  5. I liked the November’s Christmas themed box better too. This box was missing a “wow” item. I’m curious to see what they come up with for Valentine’s Day.

  6. Box has room for improvement, yet its nice. The one thing I dont like is if i subscribed, I would prefer something say “happy holidays” since I dont celebrate Christmas.

  7. Good review and I thought December box was fun to open. The January box was a let down and super light on items. It had more package filler than items. I canceled after not being able to see a great value after the Jan. box. Farm momma puts her heart in packaging and detail though.
