Jars for Williams-Sonoma Cantine Mug Set (Set of 2) Value $54
These mugs are crafted in France by Jars Céramistes. They are durable stoneware, and microwave + dishwasher safe. I love the contrast with the white exterior and high-shine espresso brown interior. (They hold about 14.5 oz)
The Pour Over Dripper – Value $24
This is a ceramic dripper that is dishwasher safe and fits No. 4 filters.
If you aren’t familiar with the pour over dripper, it works similarly to the electric drip coffee machine. With this dripper, you pour hot water over the coffee grinds, and in about 3 minutes you have brewed coffee.
And it comes with a book to help you learn everything you need to know about coffee and brewing it:
Brew Better Coffee At Home – Value $25
I’m mainly a tea drinker, but this book fascinated me! I’m ready to get back to drinking more coffee. And my husband, who loves coffee, but usually sticks with the ease of Keurig, is now into pour over coffee!
In addition to teaching you everything you need to know about making coffee, this book also covers the history of coffee. (If you enjoyed books like Salt, Cod, etc. like I did, I think you will love this book, too.)
And the design and photography of this book are great too – it’s a perfect coffee table book to display!
RPM Fitness Spring Jump Rope – Value $35
This is the slickest designed jump rope I’ve ever seen.
You customize the length to your height. Check out their video (under the sizing tab) for instructions.
This jump rope has dual-axis rotation, slim design, and just feels high-end. And it comes with a travel bag:
My husband Eric has an ear for sound quality, so I always ask for his help in evaluating headphones/speakers etc. He was seriously impressed with this one.
He said it’s the best he’s ever heard for this size speaker, and it has a really good low end, and doesn’t sound tinny at all.
The buttons for play/pause, on/off, volume, and skip are on the bottom, and you can press the sides of the top down for that button to be selected.
It come with a charging cable, and a rechargable battery:
2 hours to charge, 7 hour battery life!
Rogue Grooming Teeth Whitening Kit – Value $70
This kit includes a pre-treatment gel, a whitening gel, a post-treatment rinse, and a UV light and gum shield.
I have to admit – I was excited to see this UV light in the kit – I feel like I’ve been seeing these on Instagram celebrities forever and now I finally get to see one in real life!
It’s a simple device – just an on and off switch. The clear part is flexible, so you can get a pretty comfortable fit.
The pre-treatment gel is designed to help remove surface stains. It’s a pen appilcator with a squeeze tube – easy enough to use to brush the gel on your teeth.
The teeth whitening gel has the same brush pen applicator, and both formulas have a minty flavor. For this step, you brush it on your teeth, put in the gum shield/LED light for 15 minutes, then repeat for up to another 3 times.
Lastly, apply the teeth whitening spray. This can also double as a breath freshener mist, so I’m a little skeptical on what whitening properties it has.
This kit is a little time intensive (about an hour a treatment, and you can do it 1-3 times daily for a week.) But, I’ve tried strips before, and pretty much any whitening treatment takes some time. I can’t say I noticed any whitening differences yet, but I had no sensitivity issues with these formulas.
Scrub Supply Coffee Face and Body Scrub – Value $17
This scrub is made with coffee, cocoa powder, cold pressed coconut oil, raw demerara cane sugar, and vitamin E oil. I love the simple ingredients, and it smells just like fresh coffee grounds – perfect for waking up!
One thing to mention, this is a loose dry scrub – so if you’re looking for moisture, this isn’t the right scrub for you. But if you want a scrub that won’t have any excess oil, this should be perfect!
Aerolatte To Go – Value $16
This little battery-operated tool froths milk in under a minute!
It’s a perfect addition to a box with a lot of coffee items. (Plus I like that it has a case to keep it pristine.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $260! (And that’s using Amazon sale prices.) At the $139 price, (without our coupon), I think the value is great. I’m so impressed with the quality and curation of this box – every single item is impressive. And the wooden box itself is really well made and a great storage box.
I think this is the first subscription box where both myself and my husband love all the items equally!
