The Subscription Box: Breo Box

The Cost: $139

The Products: Receive a handcrafted customized wood box each quarter with 6-9 essential products. Each box is also carefully curated to provide products that are fitting to the season.

Check out all of our Breo Box reviews!

This box comes with a card detailing the items included:

Now, on to the items!

 

FujiFilm Instax Mini 70 Camera - Retail Value $139

Pretty amazing that with this camera and the film that goes with it, you're already over the cost of the box!

And how adorable is this camera? I've always wanted one of these Instax cameras, and I'm thrilled to see it in Breo Box!

It's super easy to use, and all automatic - no worries about messing up a picture. There's even a selfie mode to make sure you take great selfies! (And there's a little mirror on the front of the camera so you can make sure you are in the frame!)

The mode button on the top lets you switch up the modes (landscape, macro, etc.). There's also a selfie timer button.

FujiFilm Instax Mini Color Film (2 Pack) - Value $15

This set includes 20 photos total. Here are a few photos we took with the lovely model, Penelope:

As you can see, you can get lots of different results depending on the modes you use!

(If you are looking for ways to display your photos, Urban Outfitters has cute Instax Mini frame options!)

Sondergut Travel Chess/Checkers - Value $40

This suede roll is a travel checker and chess set in one:

At the end of the roll is a section to store the game pieces:

On one side of the chips are chess piece illustrations:

So you're good to go for checkers:

Or chess:

This roll-up game is well-made, and I think it's such a unique item to put in a subscription box, too. Now I really want a relaxing summer day where I can use it!

The Findables Company XY3 - Value $25

My husband Eric already has one of these, and he's a fan!

It's a little Bluetooth keychain you can attach to anything you don't want to lose:

It comes with an extra replaceable battery, too.

So, you could attach it to your keys, and get alerted by the app on your phone anytime you are leaving the proximity of your keys. (And you can also use it to find your phone! By clicking the button part, your phone will ring, even if it is on silent mode.)

The only caveat is that you have to have to install the (free) app and keep it running at all times to use these features.

S'well Stainless Steel 17 oz Water Bottle - Value $35

A subscription box can't go wrong putting a S'well bottle in a box, right?

I love the sleek design, and it keeps liquids cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12 hours.

HyperChiller - Value $35

It's official - Breo Box finds the most interesting products for their boxes! This HyperChiller can chill coffee by 130 degrees in a minute! It has two stainless steel layers that will surround the hot liquid and chill it.

You fill the smaller stainless steel container and the black plastic container with water, then freeze. After it's frozen, you'll pour coffee, tea, liquor, etc over the top lid and it will chill in about a minute!

The height fits under our Keurig, too! (And I was so pleasantly surprised to see that all parts are BPA free and dishwasher safe!)

No ice/water dilution here! What a perfect summer box item!

Sur La Table Rosle Cheese Cleaver - Value $23

This cheese cleaver is made of stainless steel, and it is dishwasher safe. It's great for all types of medium cheese. (Yes, I just had to look up what is a medium cheese.)

And to go with the cheese cleaver, we have a wooden board:

100% American Walnut Host Board - Value $45

This board measures about 12" by 8" and is perfect for serving cheese, crackers, and any other kind of app! There's no branding on this tray, but it feels and looks like a quality piece!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $357! 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.

And there are so many unique items in this box! Sometimes I feel like I've seen a lot of repeat items in subscription boxes, but not with Breo Box!

What do you think of Breo Box? What's your favorite item in the Summer Box?

When will they have fall spoilers? Don’t they start shipping in September?

I don’t understand why they haven’t released a spoiler yet. Another box I get released one in july. The first two boxes weren’t for me either but this last one was amazing and so glad I got it before it sold out. I just won’t commit to the next one without a spoiler. I’ve contacted them a couple of times and they kept telling me “soon” but soon is long gone. I wonder if they are having trouble getting items for the box and putting it together because it is odd that they haven’t released a spoiler yet.

I finally got my box yesterday – I HOPE I don’t get forgotten about as far as the cheese board goes as it is something I was really looking forward to.

Like others, my box came broken, but It’s repairable. Everything in the box is high quality and ALL of it will be put to good use. I’m happy to finally have it (well 90% of it) in my possession.

I finally asked them to send my box without the cutting board and send the cutting board later. Summer will be long over by the time this box comes at this rate! This is my first box with them, and I’m not sure I’ll continue!

I should have asked the same… instead I said to ship all contents together. Owell! I did order it for a birthday, but now it’s almost 1 month past that, I guess I’d just wait longer :\

I did the same, I want my camera for a trip next weekend. I told them to ship it on Monday, they created the label immediately afterwards and there it sat until today, It’s finally on the way.

They actually called me on a Saturday afternoon a couple weekends ago when I sent another e-mail out which was pretty impressive – explained everything, but yea, it’s still disappointing. I’m not going to cancel just yet, but I am going to be watching for fall spoilers very closely.

Received my summer box and absolutely LOVE it – but unfortunately the actual wooden box was split at one of the corners 🙁

I’ve been trying to send a message to Breo, but having issues with the “contact us” form… it won’t accept my name or email for some reason?

that is so weird bc I’m 99% positive that mine was the top right corn that was split too – I wonder if it was the cutting board bc it was in there pretty snug.

I used their “contact us” form a couple weeks ago and it was completely fine (but I didn’t get a response… not that my message needed a response, but I thought I might get one still)

I just ordered this today too, and now I see on the website that the summer box is sold out. 🙁 So I will probably contact them to cancel. Obviously demand was more than expected, but I wish there had been a warning that it was going to sell out. I read from their cs in the comments here that it would be available through August 24 (or “when it sells out”) but between now and Aug 24th is a HUGE gap in time. I waited until today when I got paid, but would have ordered it sooner if I’d known these were close to selling out. :-‘(

I’m loving the unique and interesting curation of this box! I just subscribed hoping for this exact box. When I signed up the banner at the top said it was for the Summer box. And now, an hour later it says they’re sold out and pre-ordering Fall. Aaah! I hope I’m in for the Summer one! Based on past boxes, I should have just gone for an Annual since it’s SO perfect for my husband and I. Can’t wait!

Just signed up and can’t wait to get my box. My sister purchased it as well and once I saw all the products and the cute hand made box in person I new I was a goner. I even thought of getting two boxes for the Bluetooth keychain because my daughter and I are always losing our phone and keys and I know she will take the one in box but for now I have talked myself out of a second box. I am just as excited to use the empty box for storage. Way to go Breo for putting out such an AWESOME box! You are my new favorite subscription.

Wow I am really thinking of subscribing, hoping that the camera might be in blue!
My daughter’s 21st birthday is in a few weeks and I think that she would absolutely love to have that!
Does anyone think that the camera might be available in blue??

I’ve never heard of it before but this box looks amazing! I think fall would be perfect for a an outdoor/autumn/tailgating box or a kitchen/entertaining/home box for Thanksgiving!

Has anyone who ordered this box last week gotten a shipping notice? I thought I saw somewhere boxes would ship 1-3 days after payment but I haven’t heard anything since I placed my order last Thursday. Was hoping to get the Instax in time for campjng this weekend! 🙁

I placed my order on the same day – June 22 – still no shipping update! I got several emails from them saying it will be shipped out soon…. the latest saying last week… apparently it’s some mishap with the cutting board. :\

I ordered 6/22 and still haven’t gotten a shipping notice. 🙁

They did respond to me and tell me that they were out of stock and that they’d do their best to get me in the next shipment (which obviously they didn’t) and that the next shipment would be today or Friday I guess.

Pretty disappointing. With the cash I dropped I definitely expected a quicker turn around time.

I actually had an email in my inbox from a question I asked before I purchased it and wrote them directly from that. I told them that I saw someone else say they bought the box when I did and it said 3 days to ship and neither of us received anything or any notices. He wrote me back and told me the box was so popular that they are behind on inventory. So basically they don’t have all the items and I’m a bit skeptical now that they will actually get everything. He told me mine was going out in the third shipment and it would be about 10 days from now. I’m really disappointed and am not holding my breath. I don’t know if you are familiar with the fiasco that was Little Lace Box but I’m having flashbacks!!! I saw someone else who posted that she just bought the box, about a week after me, and she got a notice it was going to ship. Messed up. I wanted the camera for my daughter to bring to summer camp. Anyway, that’s the update that I have and wanted to share it with you.

I ordered last week, they said it would take 3 days to ship and I haven’t received any updates or shipping notices. I went to check my order page and it has no information. Disappointed. I’m trying to reach them.

Hi, I just subscribed because I wanna give the box to my hubby as a birthday gift. I am thinking about subscribing for a year (or even longer) so he will be able to receive gifts for the entire year. However, I did not do the annual subscription because I am worried that he may not be a fan of some of the boxes (for example the coffee themed one). Is it possible for us to skip a box occasionally (if we see the spoiler and do not like it) and how can we do it? Thanks a lot!

Yes, even on an annual you may skip boxes 🙂

An annual means 4 total boxes shipped

oh man oh man. Usually I don’t do expensive boxes, but this might make me cave. My daughter has been wanting one of those cameras–too bad it’s not blue. Hubs was just talking about those key fobs. And I want a new cutting board so much. I might have to try to fit this in the budget, because wowza.

I want this box and would use everything except for the chiller. The curation is excellent, however, I’m not going to purchase because it’s over my normal comfort level $100 price point. Granted it’s not much over but I can’t get pass that extra $39. My mind tells me quarterly boxes should be $100 to stay within the acceptable risk factor range.

I’ll keep my eyes on the reviews each month so keep them coming Liz 🙂

Question- with this box are you able to skip a box or would you have to unsubscribe to not get a box? I would be interested in purchasing a subscription and love this edition but a box like the last one would have been a miss since I don’t drink coffee and have a limited amount of people to gift items to that are coffee drinkers. If I was able to skip a box based upon that season’s spoiler I would likely purchase the annual rather than the seasonal. Thanks!
