Farm Momma December 2017 Review
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.
The owner of Farm Momma, Jess, frequently includes a little-handwritten note in her boxes which is a thoughtful touch.
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.
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.
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.
Bonus Item: Chocolate Crinkle Cookie Recipe
Farm Momma’s own Mama, Terry Farnsworth, provided her recipe to make chocolate crinkle cookies. They sound delicious!
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.
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 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.
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.
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).
