Doteable College Subscription Box Review - Dec 2013 First look

Doteable is a monthly college care package subscription box. They offer packages for both guys and girls, and they have a regular subscription ($45 or a month) or a mini subscription ($15 a month). This review is of the mini subscription plan. (Doteable kindly sent me this box to review).

Doteable College Subscription Box Review - Dec 2013 Info

Each box comes with a card that has a theme and a brief description on what’s included in the box.

On the flip side of the card are tips based on where you are in the semester. This month is about finishing finals, remembering to thank professors you may want a recommendation from, and brushing up your resume for summer internships!

Touch Screen Gloves and Belt

I’m not sure of the value of either of these items (they aren’t branded), so I’m not doing a value breakdown for this box.

At first glance I thought these gloves looked like dollar store gloves, but when I put them on they were actually super soft and warm. (I tend to lose gloves, chapstick and hairties all the time, so I always welcome a new pair of gloves!) I’ve been using these for the past week and they work really well for touchscreen use!

These were included to go with one of the tips – thanking your professors and teaching assistants for their hard work. (And then hopefully getting a good recommendation letter!)

Verdict: Some of the items in Doteable boxes can seem a little random – like the belt this month, but it’s cute and I’ll probably use it soon, so no complaints! What do you think of the Doteable Mini December Box?

  1. I was disappointed with this box. The belt had a label that noted potential cancer risk. I threw the belt away.

    • BTW, I got a different belt from what you got.

    • Odd, that crazy and just plain wrong, maybe you shouldn’t eat the candy either.

  2. I so appreciate your reviews, especially now on the college &/or period boxes. I have two girls going off to college next year and I’m researching these so as soon as they get their new addresses I can get them a subscription or two.

    • Thanks! I think they’ll love getting boxes in college. I send quite a few to my brother who is a sophomore 🙂
