Dottie Box Mini Subscription Box Review – October 2014 Box

Dottie Box is a box curated every month for women. They feature high quality handmade items, small businesses, and indie brands. They offer a regular and a mini box; this is a review of the mini box.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Dottie Box Mini Subscription Box Review – October 2014 Info

Each box comes with a thank you note and an informational card detailing the featured items.

Dottie Box Mini Subscription Box Review – October 2014 Bookmarks

Dottie Box Fabric Cover Button Bookmarks – value: $8

Lisa Leonard Heart Stud Earrings – value: $24

I couldn’t find these specific earrings on Lisa Leonard’s site, so I had to link to a pair that looked very similar. However, those are only $19, so I don’t exactly know where Dottie Box derived their $24 value from. They may actually be valued more if they’re exclusive to Dottie Box, or because their heart-shaped, or any number of variables. I can’t really say since I can’t find them exactly online.

Nevertheless, I absolutely love them. The card backing is actually a thin piece of wood, and the earrings themselves are silver and simple – just my taste!

Dottie Box Mini Subscription Box Review – October 2014 Nu

Dottie Box always includes coupons! This month, they included on for N:U Not the Usual and Singularity Handmade.

Verdict: Last month, the mini Dottie Box contained some things that were also in the full-size box so I was kind of expecting that again this month. That’s not the case, but I did like this box! I absolutely love the earrings, and whether they’re worth $19 or $24, just them alone make for a great value out of a $10/month box.

What do you think about this month’s mini Dottie Box?

  1. I received this box with different patterned bookmarks and circle earrings. I felt this was a good value. Everything was well made and was presented well. Super cute! Definantly will get another box.

  2. This is what I think is hard about the “value” of boxes – I feel the value of an item is a very personal thing. For instance, those bookmarks are only worth about $1.50 to me. They could easily be made for that, possibly less. The earrings, only $4, max. I would’ve been so disappointed by this box, for that reason.

  3. The earrings I received are different. Maybe I’ll load it onto swap. Swap looks intimidating to me. I’m see if the pair I have is on her website. It might not be until tomorrow because I come home tonight and the boys miss me.

    • Swaps can intimidating, at first. Its really easy to get the hang of and then its a lot of fun! Sometimes I have to pull myself back, b/c I’m swapping too much. Its a great to turn the stuff from boxes that you don’t want or use into items that you love and can’t live without!

  4. Those earrings are adorable. I wonder if there were different ones each box? And if so, what were they? I’d love to swap with someone for a couple pairs if they are different. Or even the same, for gifts! So pretty!

  5. I like the earrings a lot though studs kind of get lost with my hair always covering them. The bookmarks are cute too but $8 seems kind of steep for what amounts to buttons and paper clips. Just my opinion though. I was going to ask how much the mini box costs but just caught that you mentioned at the end of the review that it’s only $10. This looks like a good value for the price for sure. I’m not familiar with either of the coupon companies. Do you know what they sell/offer?
