Dracula Greeting Card by At It Again! – Value approximately $4.15 USD
Just in time for Halloween is this greeting card, which features a quote from Bram Stoker’s Dracula and a playful little doodle. It’s quite a sassy little card—maybe pass this flirty design to your paramour or any lover of literature.
At It Again! creates cards and other paper goods themed around classic literature. It’s a cute company that I’d never have known about without this box.
Wild by Water Clutch in Skellig Views – Value approximately $38.52 USD
I love this clutch! It’s super pretty with its ocean landscape, which features the Skellig Islands. (You might recognize them from the end of the newest Star Wars movie!) I really like photorealistic prints like these, but find them overwhelming in clothing—on the other hand, this versatile zip-closed bag is the perfect amount of photo pattern.
Mungo Murphy’s Sea-Bag – Value approximately $6.56
I had never seen a product like this before! Think of the Sea-Bag as a giant tea-bag—inside, there’s a bunch of dried seaweed that you steep in hot water, releasing its powerful nutrients and oils. After you heat it up, you pop it into the bath for a soothing, traditional take on a spa soak. Crinkling the dry bag, it smells a little beachy and a little like a pine forest, to be honest.
Dingle Druid Wool Felted Soap – Value $3.62
This tiny soap comes wrapped inside a felted layer of real Irish wool. I’m a big fan of exfoliating products, and the gentle scrubbing power of the wool leaves my skin feeling smooth and squeaky clean.
The pattern is so cute, too! I love the heart. This little cube is about the size of a large die, so I’m keeping it by my sink rather than in the shower—it’s just the right size for rolling around between your hands.
Verdict: I really liked this MyIrelandBox! The card wasn’t quite my style, but I really loved the other unexpected items. I’m always delighted by the pieces this box features. They go above and beyond the run-of-the-mill shamrocks and sheep you might find in Irish gift shops in the states. The items are worth about $53.00, with most of that value coming from the clutch. All of the items are of great quality, and they’re super unique, so I’d say that the $45.00 price of the box is definitely fair.
