Easter Magnet – value: $2.50?
This Easter/Spring magnet is cute. It’s not really my style but I think the design is pretty with the different fonts and colors.
Funny Display Plaque – value $5?
This made me chuckle. It’s not something I would personally display in my home, but I know it’s often too true!
Rubber Wallet Pouch – value: $6?
This would be good for a pre-teen, I think. Or maybe used as a little pouch for something other than money. It’s a soft rubber and opens and closes easily. Not sure I have a need for this, so I’ll probably swap this.
Mini Antiqued Chest – value: $2?
This item is pretty underwhelming for me. It’s really small – the base area is smaller than a business card. Subscribers got different colors of this; this blue/green or brown/more “natural” looking wood.
Here’s what it looks like opened up.
Elegant Expressions Incense Gift Kit – value: $17
This little incense set is actually pretty nice. I like the pretty holder and the fact that these incense sticks are mini – maybe half the length of typical incense sticks. I like this because I like incense okay but I don’t use them all that often, and when I do it is only for a little bit. It also comes with incense cones. The fragrances are coconut, vanilla, strawberry, wind, floral fields, and black cherry.
Here’s a better look at the holder.
Can Coozie – value: $5?
This is not my personal taste – I neither use coozies nor am a fan of the design. Also, I really don’t feel like this is a good thing to suggest as a generally great gift for significant others. I know there are definitely many couples who would find this funny and think the other person would get a laugh out of it, but there are definitely also many people who would hate getting this as a gift from their significant other. Some subscribers got different sayings, FYI.
Ceramic Nesting Measuring Cups – value: $8?
These are actually pretty nice. They’re little nesting measuring cups. Some subscribers also got these in white.
Here are the cups unpackaged – there’s a ¼ cup, ½ cup, and 1 cup. I think these are quite nice, I just don’t think I’d grab these over my measuring cup set that I currently use. These would be cute on display, though!
The Verdict: True Love Box describes itself as “lovey dovey” and says that it will help “keep the magic and surprise in your relationship.” Personally, I really don’t see that delivered in what they put together here. I’m really underwhelmed by my first impression of them. Most of the items aren’t my taste, and that’s my individual opinion, but I also feel like a lot of this stuff also seems a little dollar store to me. The values are mostly guesstimated, but they add up to about $45. That just breaks even with the cost of the box shipped. Which is another issue I have – the products just aren’t what I would expect from a subscription box priced at $35, especially with $9 shipping. I don’t know, I just don’t feel like this box is where it should be for that price range and for what it claims to be.
