Dottie Box Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Pencils

Harvest Co. “Sparkle & Shine” Pencils – 2 pencils, value: $4

Life in Mint Vintage Bottle Cap Magnets – set of 4, value: $7

I think these pencils are cute – they’ll look nice in my pen holder on my desk!

These magnets aren’t quite my style, but they’ll definitely make a cute gift.

Dottie Box Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Chain

Totally Tish Silver “Inspire” Necklace – value: $10

This necklace is just my style – simple, silver, and I love metal-stamped jewelry.

Dottie Box Subscription Box Review – March 2015 Stickers

Itty Bitty Bubbles & Co. Bubble Cup in “Unicorn Tears” – 2 oz, value: $2

DottieBox Chalkboard Labels – value: $10?

I’ve never heard of bubble cups before, but this cup has almost a play-dough consistency, and you scoop some out and run it under the water to get a bubble bath! The fragrance I got is called “Unicorn Tears.” I can’t find it on their website, but it smells like a fruity bubblegum scent.

I added a question mark after the $10 value for these chalkboard stickers because I think it’s a little inflated – I know I could get the same thing for about half the price at a craft store. That being said, I’m happy to have the labels. They fit in well on my kitchen canisters and such, so I know I’m going to use them.

Verdict: I think this month’s Dottie Box is cute! It’s definitely an interesting mix of things, but I’m going to use almost everything so that’s fine. As far as value goes, everything adds up to $33, which I’m happy with, even if you adjust the value a little for the chalkboard labels.

What do you think about the March Dottie Box?

  1. Wow, I thought for sure that was the mini box. I would’ve loved that box for $10. For $20, not so much. The magnets are cute but theyre still just magnets, and I can easily make my own. Necklace is nice but nothing special or different than youd find at Claire’s. Bubble bath is also nice but looks like a free sample size. And really, while the pencils are cute, theyre still just pencils.

    • $26 counting shipping! No way!

  2. I was forcefully converted to Dottiebox from my Indie Gift Box subscription, and am not looking forward to receiving this box at all. The only thing I’d use is the magnets, I guess, because you can always use more refrigerator magnets. I don’t write with pencils and haven’t for years, don’t take bubble baths, don’t keep chalk, and don’t wear necklaces with words on them.

  3. Haley, which size box was this? Thanks!

    • Bets,

      This is a review of the regular/full DottieBox.

  4. I bought those chalk labels at the $1.00 bin at Target in October.

    • First thing my boyfriend said… “Aren’t those the chalkboard labels you got at Target from the dollar spot?” This was my first month of ordering the dottie box and was semi disappointed solely due to this. Won’t be ordering the box again – would rather see what others get and try out etsy shops from the reviews.
