Fancy Box Review - January 2013 - The Fancy Monthly Subscription Service

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my other fancy subscriptions: Pink, Ashton Kutcher, Food and Verbal boxes. But for now - here's my review of the original Fancy box!

The Box: Fancy Box

The Cost: $39 a month plus shipping

The Products: $80+ value worth of product based on the categories you select.

Party Tee- Value $24

I originally thought I didn't want any clothes from The Fancy - but this tee is growing on me.

The End Book End - Value $16

This book end is pretty cool - I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep it or gift it!

Glovely Touch Screen Gloves - Value $25

These gloves are my favorite item in the box. The entire glove has the touchscreen threads, and they have magnets to keep the gloves attached when you aren't wearing them.

This select-a-reason card is really cute. I can't wait to use it!

All My Friends Are Dead Book - Value $10

Deep Tea Diver - Value $10

I was so excited abotu this tea steeper until I noticed it's hand wash only - still fun though!

 

Verdict: This is probably my favorite Fancy Box so far. Now I can't wait to see what's in my upcoming Fancy Boxes! Do you subscribe to Fancy Box? What items did you get this month?

Hi, I just received my first box today. Overall, I’m not that thrilled. I plan on gifting everything I received. Which categories did you select? I would have loved the book, the bookends, and the coasters that someone else received.

Interesting! I selected the same categories and I received a scarf, ice cube tray, portable speaker, cord organizer, cookie press, and one of those hot chocolate things on a stick that we received in the Jan Popsugar box. I guess no two boxes are alike.

I agree that the tracking is pretty awful. It makes the more anxious of us.. like moi…super antsy. I have too also experienced tracking information after the fact. But hopefully what’s in the boxes make. Up for it.

You got a great box! In mine I got the same card, gloves, and shirt (I gave it to the husband- he’s not super into graphic tees but the color and softness won him over), and then I got Urban Beatz Verse Headphones (in a gorgeous mint color) and Molla Space Keyboard Coasters.

I’m super happy with everything I got but I must say I’m super jealous of the All My Friends Are Dead Book and the tea diver! I’m anxious to see what’s in store for this month!

Hi, do you mind if I ask which categories you selected? I wasn’t thrilled with my box and yours sounds better. Thanks!

My Jan box came in the middle of Jan, I haven’t hear anything about the shipment of the Feb boxes yet (I didn’t get a shipping notification for my Jan box until after it had arrived lol) but I’m willing to bet the Feb boxes will be here soon.

I subscribed a few weeks ago and I haven’t gotten any notification about shipping. Do they send tracking links or anything?

I’ve found their shipment tracking to be inconsistent 🙁 I would suggest emailing them for tracking info.
