College Student Subscription Boxes - Doteable Review

College student subscription boxes are one of the biggest subscription trends of 2013. Monthly care packages sent to college students make so much sense, and I’m glad to see this new category of subscription boxes take off!

Doteable is one of the first college subscription boxes. They offer classic and mini boxes, and this review is of the mini box. (Doteable kindly sent me this box to review).

Each box includes a card detailing the items in the box. This month’s box has a Halloween theme – I love it!

Aerie Vintage Lace Boy brief – Value $12.50

Verdict: I think the Doteable Mini box is such a great value! I love that they have themed boxes and include study tips, and I’m not even a college student, and I love going through this box!

What do you think of Doteable Mini?

  1. The box looks awesome but, I agree the brooch is not fitting in with the rest of the items. I think the candy corn hair ties are adorable!!!

  2. I ordered 3 to be sent to my younger sister who is away at college and she got this same exact box this month. I was fairly happy with it, but the brooch just did not make sense to me at all. College students (esp ones that dorm) live in sweat pants and sweat shirts… where would they put a brooch?? Silly.

    • I thought the same thing. Earrings maybe, or a cute bracelet, but a brooch?

      • Yes, exactly. We got a good laugh out of it, but hopefully the next one will be more fitting.
