This month’s Gift Izzy box was a Summer Sunset Nights theme.


Bracelet 2

Bracelet On

Tila Cuff in Clarity by VSL Luxury Jewelry – $220

Victoria Shorten’s brand VSL jewelry has been worn by Fergie and Britney Spears on tour. This particular cuff is elastic, sparkly and very weighty. It *just* fits my small wrist so I’m not sure it would work for everyone. I think it’s very pretty, but I don’t see spending $220 on an elastic costume jewelry bracelet. This is why I love subscription boxes, a beautiful bracelet at a fraction of the retail value! I think packaging this in a separate jewelry box was a great idea because it would make a great gift as well. I don’t see this exact bracelet for sale, but a larger version is selling for $550.


Aloe Vera Gel with Mint by Ligne St Barth – $10.50

The Aloe Vera gel smells like spearmint and is very cooling to the touch. Moisturizing and soothing, it’s ideal as an after-sun balm but can certainly be used anytime. I’ll be packing this for our next vacation to Florida.



Di Potter Wine Glass Shades – $10.00?

This is certainly something I’ve never seen in a subscription box before. These are paper shades that can be wrapped and attached around a wine glass to act like a lamp shade. The set included flameless tea lights to set inside the wine glasses to provide the light itself. I’m sorry, but we only have stemless wine glasses right now so I wasn’t able to take a photo showing the shade on a stemmed glass. However I included an image from Amazon’s website so you can see what they look like assembled. These shades are sold as a set of 6 on Amazon for $18, but since I was given 2 (plus tea lights) I guessed the value at $10.


Caramel and Cheddar Popcorn by Pops Corn – $8.00?

The cheddar and caramel corn both tasted good and were fresh. These sized bags aren’t sold individually on the Pops Corn site so I’m guess on the value.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my Gift Izzy box again. The value is about $248 which I think is amazing. I like the hero item (bracelet) and thought all the other items went well with the Summer Sunset Night theme. I love Gift Izzy’s packaging and curation and can’t wait to see what they come up with for August!

  1. That bracelet is gorgeous!! I’m usually happy to see stretch bracelets since I have larger wrists, but this just barely fit your small wrist? Yikes. That would be pretty upsetting if the (by far) biggest value item didn’t fit.

  2. I received my box last week and I have gotten so many compliments on the bracelet! I love it, and it is heavy. I love when jewelry has weight it just makes it feel so much better. With the clutch last box and the bracelet this box, this is one I am keeping. I had too many disappointments with FFF and PopSugar so this is my treat of choice! 🙂

  3. I love this box!! I am trying to cut back so canceled Luxor and subbed to this instead at about half the price. I get one fancy luxe thing that I will have for years, a nice food item (have repurchased the mixer from last box! Love! The popcorn was yummy, too!), and a high end beauty product that I actually will use. I don’t end up with a bunch of filler stuff to swap or store (except the little lights… I am just thinking of those as a freebie), get a nice assortment of luxe things, and at a good price! I love their formula, based on the last two boxes, of accessory + beauty + snack. Keep it up, Gift Izzy, I can’t wait for next month!

    • I completely agree! They do seem to have a formula and it works. They’ve been doing a great job so far, I hope August is just as amazing.

  4. Love the review, very descriptive and honest! I am not feeling the value; I think it just isn’t my style though It’s fun reading others happy, excited posts.

    • Thank you nursermk! I really appreciate your kind words! ☺️

  5. Mix the caramel & cheddar pop corn together. It’s called the “Chicago Mix” and it’s amazing (granted, that’s a different brand, but I’d imagine it’d work for other brands).

    • What a fabulous idea! I never would have thought to mix them. I wish I hadn’t already scarfed down both bags…self-restraint with snacks isn’t my strong suit!

  6. I saw similar wine glass shades at Dollar tree.

    • Yup dollar store shade and votive.

  7. I got this box and received the bracelet in silver instead of the gold. I absolutely LOVE it!!! The pictures above don’t do the bracelet justice. Mine is very sparkly and eye catching. I can’t wait to wear it for special occasions. This is an awesome box sub so far. The last box included a great clutch. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

    • Hi!
      Mine was silver but it may be appearing gold in the photos because of the sunlight. It is so gorgeous!

      • I thought it looked gold. Could be my iPhone too. It kind of made me excited and I was thinking of ordering another box to try and get the gold one if they had it. Still might order another box to gift the bracelet. ?

        • the bracelet looks gold to me too (I’m on a desktop computer) – but the one on the info card looks silver. both are really pretty though

  8. This looks like an interesting sub. Bracelet is very pretty and the wine glass shades are unique. Think I may have to look into this?.

  9. I like the bracelet, too. I would totally make something like that for myself if I could find similar links. But, I probably wouldn’t use elastic. I have had a lot of elastic bracelets I made years ago fall apart on me due to the elastic getting old and hard.
