MissionCute is a monthly subscription box of cute items for your home and wardrobe, including finds from indie businesses. What's more, they donate 50% of their proceeds to a different charity every month.

MissionCute recently started offering a mini box subscription, in addition to their regular box. The regular box is now called their “deluxe box.”

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This review is of the MissionCute Deluxe, $39 a month, box.

On the back of the card, MissionCute shares a little bit about the month's featured charity. This month, it's Sow Much Good, which helps bring fresh, affordable nutrition to underserved communities.

Set of 8 Deer Gift Tags by P.Press - Value $8.00

These ivory tags are simple, yet sophisticated. I love the cursive "to" and "from" and of course the cute black deer. The paper these are on have a very subtle texture that gives them a bit of rustic charm. These are just my style and right in time for gift season!

Sparkle Studs by Moe + Co - Listed Value $16.00

These earrings are holiday party perfect... by which I mean I've already worn them to a holiday party, and it was awesome! They're just a bit bigger than your everyday crystal studs, which helps them stand out. The ring of little crystals around the outside of the main stone add some shimmer.

They're very comfortable and light to wear. These earrings are my new holiday party go-tos!

Sleeping Beauty Tea by Bad Girl Good Tea, 1.125 oz. - Value $9.99

I was immediately drawn in by the gold foil packaging of this loose leaf tea. What can I say, I'm a sucker for metallics! I like that this tea is indie made. It's also cool that it came with a coupon in case I fall in love with these flavors.

And indeed I did! This tea is a decadent, dessert-ish version of a typical chamomile. It's got some vanilla and coconut mixed in with classic floral flavors.

Swan Tea Infuser - Listed Value $4.00

To make the tea, you'll need an infuser like this Mission-cute exclusive. This novelty-shaped tea infuser isn't made of the highest quality plastic, but it's more than enough to make a mug of tasty tea.

Just pop open the body of the swan, and fill the body with a scoop of the loose leaf tea. From there, it works like a tea bag would. Once you're done, just open this pod once again and ditch the leaves. Fun and reusable!

Warm Fuzzies Socks - Listed Value $6.00

Oh wow, these MissionCute-exclusive socks are my absolute favorite item in this box! I love the soft chenille feel of these red and black socks. They're a great alternative to slippers when I putz around the house.

The edges aren't super tidy—you can see the white stitching that holds the fun red fabric in place. But no matter. They're so darn comfy and warm that I couldn't be bothered to care!

Frosted Peppermint Lip Balm by Live Beautifully - Value $3.50

This lip balm has a very strong peppermint smell with undertones of vanilla (or something toasty... almost like almond). The formula isn't anything out of the ordinary, but it's already helped save my dry winter lips on a few occasions. My main concern with this item is that MissionCute lists it at $12.00, which seems way too high a price for what this product is. The Live Beautifully site lists this tube for $3.50, which still seems high to me, but is much fairer than the listed value.

You Make a Difference 5 x 7 Print by Renewed Daily - Value $15.00

I like the simplicity of this print. Plus, the sentiment is a nice reminder that your subscription to MissionCute is helping community organizations make an impact. My only concern is that the price seems high for what is essentially a cute printed postcard. I checked out Renewed Daily's Etsy store, and a whole set of 3 postcard prints go for $14.00. Again, I really like the design, but I wish the listed value was a little more realistic.

Verdict: This MissionCute box was a great winter treat. I loved the tea and appreciated that they included an infuser with it. I also really loved the socks, as simple as they are, and the cute print. Going by MissionCute's prices, the value of the box is almost $70.00 ($62.49 based on website prices), which is quite a bit more than the $39.00 price. Some of that value goes to charity, which I like, but I do wish the quality of the items matched what MissionCute values them at.

I recieved a couple of those items in my Mysterybox that they had for 15 dollars in Dec. It was a one time box with past months. I always wanted to try this box but I just mostly because of the price.
Anyway I LOVED IT. This box was packed full with goodies. Such a great deal and if they have another mysterybox again for 15 I would jump on that party train….
