Box of Happies Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Card

Each box comes with a card detailing the items, designers, and retail prices.

Box of Happies Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Candle

Fisher Creek Candle Tin in Cool Citrus Basil – Value $4.50

Perfectly Natural Soap Happy Feet Peppermint Tea Tree Pumice Bar Soap – Value $4.50

I love when a box smells great even before you open it – and thanks to this soap the entire box smelled of peppermint! I’ve never tried a soap with pumice built in – but it seems like a good idea. We’ll see how it works!

I haven’t decided yet if I love this candle scent yet – but it just looks like the perfect beach candle! It may be gifted!

Box of Happies Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Bracelet

Box of Happies Bracelet – Value $8

SewFlo Button Cover Earrings – Value $6

Each Box of Happies box I’ve received has included jewelry like the bracelet and necklace below, so I would recommend only signing up for this box if you are OK with a large part of the value each month going to jewelry.

Box of Happies Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Necklace

Box of Happies Necklace – Value $8

I love all things nautical, but I’m already getting in fall-weather mode, so I’ll be wearing this necklace more next summer!

Verdict: This box cost $30 and the value is about $31. This isn’t a high value box, but the retail value is always at least equal to the cost. If you’d like a mix of jewelry and handmade items I recommend this box!

  1. Just signed up! This box actually costs $28.99 (with shipping) and they have a coupon code for $2 off with code HAPPIES — so I got my box for $26.99! SCORE! Can’t wait to see what handmade surprises I receive 🙂

  2. That box they sent it in looks great…Do you think they’d send a cool new container every month?

    • I have ordered two boxes, you do get a plastic reusable bin with every box!

  3. I LOVE the bracelet and necklace!!! Wish those were items I could purchase on Etsy
