This box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Produce Candle in Peach – Value $20
I like the Produce Candles line! This candle is pretty strongly scented – so if you don’t like peach, you are out of luck! I think the packaging is so cute on this line, and I like that the candles are made with all natural soy wax.
Parris Chic Boutique Tote – Value $14
I get a ton of totes in subscription boxes, but for some reason, I’m always happy to get more! (I may be a tote addict too…)
Ruff House Art Eat Cake for Breakfast Card – Value $5
These cards are both blank inside. (In smaller text, the coffee card includes “[most days].”
Verdict: This box has a value of about $44. I think the curation is great – it definitely felt like unboxing a thoughtful gift. (And I fall into the category of subscription box addicts who can never have enough candles, totes or notecards). The value is a little disappointing, though. I would have liked to see them at least meet the total cost of the box $46.95. I know they are working with independent makers, so I expect the value to be closer to Hammock Pack than POPSUGAR, but I hope in September the value is closer to $50 (or higher!).
