POPSUGAR released the POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Holiday box on their Facebook page!

The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Holiday Box For Her

The Cost: $100

The Products: For Her: This holiday season calls for entertainment, celebration, and coziness. Prep yourself as either the gift giver or recipient of these wondrous Winter surprises, certain to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

And each box will include:


The Cambridge Satchel Company, Tiny Satchel – Value $95


This POPSUGAR-exclusive purse design is ideal for transitioning from day to night, especially due to its classic black-and-clay color scheme. Crafted with real leather and featuring an adjustable strap, this timeless mini bag will allow you to go hands-free during your holiday outings.


(POPSUGAR sent me this spoiler item in advance so I can answer any questions you might have about it.)


This purse is very well-made – even the nickel hardware is branded:


And it comes with a dustbag:


Here it is on to give you a better sense of scale:


It’s tiny but I could fit the essentials:


iPhone 7, lip balm, and hand sanitizer – check!

And here is the first spoiler in case you missed it:


Pehr Designs Charcoal Muskoka Throw – Value $136


(POPSUGAR sent me this spoiler item in advance so I can answer any questions you might have about it.)


This throw blanket is made with 100% cotton flannel. It’s not a thick blanket, but it still has a good weight to it, and it will definitely keep you warm! (Yes, to all things flannel!)


It measures 50″L x 60″W. And I’ll hold it up for you to give you a better sense of scale:


UPDATE: Here is the blanket with the Pehr bin from the January POPSUGAR box to give you a better sense of the colors:



What do you think of the spoilers? I’m so impressed with the quality and value of both pieces!

Personally, this is one of my favorite subscription box items of ALL TIME! It’s so cozy and warm, the design is fab, it is machine washable, and I think it would make a perfect gift (if you are willing to part with it!)

Are you going to grab a Holiday box? (I’m guessing these might sell out with this spoiler!)

  1. This bag is a no-go for me. So I will not be getting this box! Very sad! Glad I waited for spoilers though! THANKS MSA!

  2. As far as I’m concerned, these could be the only two items in the box and I’d be happy! Or just one as the ‘hero’ item.

  3. Thank you for the spoiler! I ordered a second box once I saw this bag. I live in downtown Chicago in the loop, and I walk everywhere, and my sister-in-law and brother live in downtown Dallas- she’ll be getting one of these bags for Christmas. This is the perfect bag for weekend errands and meeting friends for drinks. Plus I’m southern- Cambridge satchel company is HUGE with preppy southerners. And my mom is getting the throw. I’m getting so so excited about Christmas this year thanks to POPSUGAR! I ordered a second November for gifts, all three limited edition boxes (and now a second for her box) and I’ll be ordering the Black Friday deal. As far as I’m concerned POPSUGAR can have all of money, forever and ever. Lol.

  4. I don’t carry much besides a slim wallet, my phone, my keys, and a lip balm (all usually in my pockets!) so this bag is pretty much tailor-made for me. I was already sold on the Pehr blanket but this makes it even sweeter.

  5. The satchel is the same company that RZ had in one of her subs. (Hers was white) Its definitely a quality purse but even hers was larger and I could only fit my keys and small wallet. It’s very stiff and isn’t one of those purses that will stretch. I bet you literally can only put 2 tiny items in them and with heavy coats being worn in the winter up North, that cross body would be useless.

    • Thanks for the info. I already have several tiny bags I never use because once I put my keys in them there isn’t room for anything else!

  6. I’m Split I love the throw in PSMH and the Wallet for NM box. Have way tooooo many crossbody bags the wallet is something fun. I am happy though that I chose the HER box instead of NM …since I wasted SO much $$$ on Mysterey BOXES or should I say BOX that I paid for multiple times! Let me know if you want to swap the crossbody for the wallet 😉

  7. It looks like there is a little window on the front of the bag…..what exactly would you put in there? It must be tiny

    • I don’t know but if you look at the Cambridge Satchel website most have that little window. The Rachel Zoe one did not but for some reason I have seen bags online with that same window.

  8. I don’t like this at all. It is way too tiny. I need more room and this is not exactly an exciting evening bag. Like the Neiman Marcus Stace way better than this thing! This bag is utterly hideous! I wish I had not bought this box!

    • I’m with you… I keep looking at it and hope I’ll like it but nope I still think it’s ugly. Maybe the rest of the box will be good ?

  9. Bought a second one today, and got rid of some stuff on FABFITFUN. I think this throw blanket will be better as a gift than the Massi one for one of my gifts, and the purse is also an incredible gift for someone too, what a bargain…is this it or is there more stuff? I am thrilled.

  10. Forget PopSugar, I looove those boots!!

    • Am with you there

    • Lol yes ❤️ those boots!

    • I found them! (But not in my size ☹️)
      On Amazon – Rebels Women’s Rb-zen Boot

  11. I like it – but WOW it’s tiny. At first thought I was excited until I realized my wallet wouldn’t even fit…so it would be a ‘special occasion’ purse. Second thought was to give it to my 6 y.o. daughter because she doesn’t have a real purse other than the cheesy things my mom gets her…but that’s a high value purse for a 6y y.o.

    We’ll see if I swap/keep/gift to my kid…when it arrives.

  12. Is anyone else holding out for a black friday deal?

    • Me, me! I think they mentioned something on the live video – that it would start on the 25th I believe?

      • Black Friday deal for this LE Box or for their regular subscription?

    • Yes!

    • Will there be a deal for this box? Do they normally sell out? I am leaning towards getting it but I hate to buy it full price if its about to go on sale.

      • They normally have a sale on their monthly must-have boxes, but I don’t recall them discounting the LE boxes.

        • I agree…last year I snagged a cheap November box because they had extras at some point. It was in December that they finally did the inexpensive 6 month deal that I snagged.

  13. @ Liz. Please could you post a picture of the inside? Even better with an iPhone + in. I have the 7+ and am a quest for purses, as it no longer fits in a pocket! Wish I had bought this instead of the NM! Thx 🙂

  14. I love this!! Really hoping it fits my Galaxy s7…

  15. @liz is the bag black/white or black/cream? And for the throw also – is it white or more of a beige/cream? It’s hard to tell from the photos.

    • I would describe the bag colors as black and off-white, and the blanket as more of a light cream. I hope that helps. The blanket is definitely more of a cream shade than the purse! 🙂

  16. I am SO excited for this box! I love love love the throw & bag! Everything else will just be bonus. Hoping for a really pretty piece of jewelry, like last year, too!

  17. Onto more important things…. where did you get that phone case?! 🙂 lol

  18. would this look good w/ the rachel zoe cape/ scarf thing?

    • Oooh! I like that idea! I think it could look great 🙂

      • You should model it for us …pleeeeaasseeeee????
        Its been a much milder winter than i was expecting in the NE, so im regretting not getting that cape…and it doesnt seem like its getting colder any time soon!?

  19. This is really pretty–I love black and white accessories. Crossbody doesn’t work so well with my body type though, so I’ll have to see how short the strap can be adjusted.

  20. I love it, but it is too tiny for me. 🙁

  21. I’m not sure that I love the satchel, but I like it enough. It’s funny, cause it probably fit my style better a few years ago than my style now. I think I’ll still get some use out of it, maybe while traveling or going to festivals or something. I hope the other items in the box are good, but at least I like the throw and satchel enough that I won’t feel like I wasted my money.

    • I agree, I think that also speaks to that particular style – cs satchel, jcrew catalogue – that was really popular a couple years ago. Still perfectly business casual fun

      • Yes, and I also liked bags that were more geometric, colorful, and almost cartoon-ish looking (like JumpFromPaper) a few years ago, lol. I still like geometric bags, so the boxy shape appeals to me, but I’m not sure I like the colorblocking for this bag, though I’m sure it will match a lot. I know this color scheme is a PopSugar exclusive, but I looked at the mini satchel on the company’s website and would have preferred the Oxblood. Happy to give it a spin though!

        • and I loved the red one. I would love this mini in red. But I say that about everything.

  22. It looked navy blue in the spoiler email. Would have liked that better, but its still a cute little bag.

  23. Liz what brand are the brown boots you are wearing in the last picture? I’m in love!!

    • They are Muk Luks slippers. I can’t find the exact version online (bought these over a year ago), but here are some similar options: http://amzn.to/2g3nTmz

      Hope that helps! 🙂

  24. Ok so when I first saw the spoilers for the Neiman Marcus box I thought the wallet was cute in a kitschy type of way BUT now in comparison to how this box is shaping up it makes the Neiman box seem ridiculous!

    • I bet you the neiman box will get another $50 coupon deal. I wonder how many they’ve sold so far? I wouldn’t go for it unless it had an insane deal attached to it, and even so maybe.

      • Yea I think they would get me to bite with a good deal. I’m a sucker when it comes to “bargains” or “discounts” LOL

        As it stands right now I’m liking this box a lot better than the NM so I feel like I made the right choice 🙂

  25. LOVE LOVE LOVE, and now I can drop the bag I have in my FFF add ons!!!

    • Ha ha… I’m trying to decide whether to drop the massi throw…

  26. hey hey hey…either they’ve got some super fast shipping or Liz is holding out on us! This was litterally spoiled live on FB like 10 minutes ago…wish I could have it in my hands this fast! so jelly!!
    but really, whos side are you on ??? 😛

    • Her comment states that they sent the spoiler item to her early in order to answer questions 🙂 It’s happened several times now.

  27. I ordered this when the pehr blanket spoiler came out. Weelll, at least this has a strap! And big enough to get my Samsung Note (6×3 1/2) inside. And I’m glad it’s not blue! I think I can make this work!

    • Lol. I was just thinking the exact same thing about it not being blue.

  28. I’m glad I waited, although cute…I am not loving it. This will be an easy pass for me.

  29. This is off topic but where did you get those black boots, Liz? They’re so cute!

    • I bought them on Hautelook a few weeks ago, but they’re available on Amazon, too: http://amzn.to/2f8Hv8h

      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Thanks! 🙂

  30. The bag is cute. I think it will work for my sons girlfriend.
    Ok. I’ll bite. 🙂

  31. I am still pining over not getting the Rachel Zoe box that had the Cambridge Satchel bag! So this was PERFECT woohoo!!!!!!

  32. Wow, that purse is tiny! Even though I’m a fan of small purses, I’m hesitant to pull the trigger without more spoilers. PS’ trend lately is to offer less items with higher inflated values to compensate.

  33. Bummer – not for me. It looks way tiny for a cross body too. Not sure how this fits into the theme either. 🙁

  34. Love it and then to see it actually see it styled on you Liz, SOLD!!!! Those boots are AMAZING!

  35. Like both items so far. Wish the box felt more festive for the holidays though.

    • Agree!!

  36. Oh, I love Cambridge Satchel Co. – the one in the RZ box was awesome! ! But this looks very small. Any chance the strap detaches so it can be used as a pouch?

  37. Not a fan of the bag 🙁

  38. While very nice and cute, it’s tiny!! I’m not even sure it would hold my change. I got the one in RZ last year and it sat in my closet for a year and I never used it; finally swapped it. The men’s box last year looked amazing, this one is an easy pass for me.

  39. I like it, but I don’t love it. I will still use it with evening outfits for dates and such.

    I have to say I feel bad for those getting the Nieman Marcus box. I believe this is MUCH better than that clutch.

  40. I love your sunglasses Liz! Where did you get them?

  41. I LOVE this box so far!!! YAY!!!!

  42. Nope.

  43. Well that’s not what I was hoping for. Leaning towards a no on this box now…

  44. I love that bag! Can’t wait… woo hoo!

  45. Love, love, love, love. If everything else in the box is awful I will still come out ahead.

  46. Adding- although now that two high price points have been spoiled I wonder if the rest of the box are smaller things?

  47. Crap…now I want this

    • Lol ditto!

  48. Do you think this would fit an iPhone 6s plus?

    • I just tested it with the iPhone 6 plus, and good news, I could get it to fit! (It’s a tight fit, though – it will have to go in diagonally.)

      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • It does, thank you so much for taking the time! 🙂

  49. This is already 10x better than last year’s

    • Much better than last years box! Loving both the items so far! Not much longer till the box ships!

    • So much better!!! But last year they included a perfume sample as one of the items so it really couldn’t be worse. 🙂

      • OMG I forgot all about that lol

  50. Love this. Wish I had gotten this box instead of 5 stupid mystery boxes! Lol. I am out of money to give to Popsugar.
