Subscriber Survey: What is Your Most Cherished Subscription Box Item?

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sunday Subscriber Survey time! This week’s subscription box question is:

What is your most cherished subscription box item?

It’s a very difficult question to answer if you are a subscription addict! I’m having a hard time picking just one item, but the first thing that came to my mind is the Pehr Designs Charcoal Muskoka Throw from the Limited Edition Holiday 2016 POPSUGAR Box:

It’s soft, cozy, perfect for our minimalist/modern decor, and a Buckles-favorite, too!

What’s your all-time most cherished subscription box item? And which box is it from? (OK to list more than one if you can’t narrow it down!)

P.S. Have a subscriber survey question idea for next week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m late but the Samantha Faye inspirational silver cuff from Popsugar that hardly anyone else liked. I even swapped for it 2 more times!

    It was just perfect timing. I had been journaling and meditating and the cuff had my mantra on it.

    “Be good. Do good. Feel good.”

    (I would swap for it 3 more times😊)

  2. At the moment, I’m in love with the kimono from The Box of Style. <3 🙂

  3. So fun to read everyone’s choices!

    Two of my favorites were from the first PopSugar box I ever got – the Kendra Scott black necklace and the Lollia body wash. I also love the Tilo scarf (also PS) and in the summer I carry the tote from Liz’s Beach Box every day to work. Avenue A has given me lots of great stuff too – the workout clothes from Fall 2016 turned out to be favorites and I love the Spring Stella bag.

    I really like getting fancy skin care. The one item I’m most likely to purchase full price was the Indie Lee strawberry face wash from the PS Fall special edition in 2015. Nothing else has done such a great job removing makeup. I just need to use up all my other products first…

  4. Lately, I have been loving my beach items for my weekend getaways…
    -The FFF Gypsy Beach Roundie
    – The Milly pouch that is waterproof. Very handy for beach/pool use.
    -I also love that Popsugar ‘hatattack’ white/black faded diamond print sarong, BUT i use it as a scarf for so many outfits while out and about. It is a great neutral that jazzes up a casual outfit with the pattern.
    – ‘The Cottage Greenhouse’ carrot/neroli shower soap oil from April Popsugar. Smells heavenly and addicting! I would definitely hoard this item. Great quality and moisturizing.
    – the ‘Goldfadden MD Fresh a Peel’ from Jan 17 Popsugar ..the trick for me is to not rinse it off. I leave it on overnight and it totally gets rid of blemishes and built up dead skin.

  5. Illesteva sunglasses from PopSugar CFDA 2016. I happened to get them in Sand (which is probably the only color out of all of them that I’d actually wear) and they are now my go-to sunglasses.
    Also, the Caeden ceramic and rose gold headphones from the limited edition Fall 2016 PopSugar. They have the best sound and it doesn’t hurt that they look pretty!
    PopSugar can be really hit or miss for me, but I’ve obviously gotten a couple of really big winners from their Limited Edition boxes!

  6. *Miansai bracelet-I lost it on vacation and purchased a new one on ebay, I loved it that much.

    *The blue and white huge beach bag from PS Summer LE a couple years ago. This bag has gotten so much use, it holds towels and a small cooler, perfect carryall. Emphasis on all.

    *The Wool blanket from Liz’s box. I purchased two boxes specifically for this item, one for me and one for my son. I lost mine at a hockey tournament in Canada. I need to find one to swap for, that was the perfect rink blanket.

    *The Alexis Bittar ring from RZ- always get compliments when I wear it.

    *The Aloha blue fabric clutch from PS Summer LE a while back. I use this for my card holder (RZ Winter 2016…runner up), knitting , a bottle of sunscreen, and my phone when going to the beach or pool. I has become a summer staple when I travel.

    *The Mara Hoffman sarong from RZ-matches so many of swimsuits and still looks good after much use.

  7. I got a lot of compliments on a gray neutral pop sugar scarf. It has tiny gold specks. I wear it with a lot of clothes! My first one was taken in resturant…. had to swap to get another!
    Gold cuff from Kendra
    Straw beach bag from last year summer le pop sugar box.
    I use the leather blue /navy clutch. Nice quality and love the pop of color!
    Rachel Zoe card case pure quality!
    Rachel Zoe sparkle necklace and watch!

  8. Adidas PureBoost Running Shoes from Avenue A. They have been my go-to sneaker since I got them.

  9. The cloud with a raindrop and umbrella necklace from Peaches and Petals. I wear it all the time!

  10. This is an extremely hard decision. I’m going to have to go with my Odelay by Beck vinyl sent to me by Vinyl Me, Please!

  11. For me, it would have to be the little blue vase from Little Lace Box with the Pride & Prejudice theme. While not usually my style, it looked like something that perfectly fit my grandmother’s style. That blue was her favorite color, and the entire design just reminds me of her. When she passed and we had to sell her house, I took one last rose from her cherished rose garden and put it in that vase. The flower is all dried out now, but it still sits in that vase, and every time I look at it I think of her.

    • Lovely story. What a sweet connection with a special memory and person

  12. Tatcha ageless renewal cream from the holiday Byrdie Beauty edit box

  13. On reflection I would have to say that Box of Style has provided the most enduring items. To name a few of my favs…
    Lstn headphones (I use these every day and have swapped for more!)
    Toms Sunglasses
    Cambridge Satchel
    Cluse Watch
    Tatcha Polished

  14. Smashbox Pkrimer!! I tried it thanks to Play! by Sephora and I can’t use any other now.

  15. This question is insane, and makes me realize the insanity most of us, like me, are living in that we have so MUCH STUFF from these subs. But also like most of us, I’m not giving my subs up.

    Narrowing it down is tough, so I’m going with my first instincts. On the daily: My Cargo Around the World Palette and my L’Oreal Voluminous White Primer (which I can and will be repurchasing soon). My best “wow” item is that Dylanex necklace from BOS that I wear on fancy occasions – weddings, semi-formal parties, things like that. Because I don’t use it often, and because it’s so gorgeous, I always get a lot of compliments and ooohs & ahhhs over that one.

    I feel bad that I’m leaving out so many awesome things that I use every day from these wonderful boxes and bags!!

  16. Love the beauty counter blush from the most recent Rachel Zoe box.

  17. So many. My Blackwood bag and hairtie holder bracelet from Happy Rebel Summer 2017, the knife block and kitchen prints from Happy Rebel Spring 2017 and the throw from Happy Rebel Winter 2016. The Coconut Milk gel to foam face wash from ipsy. The Loreal volumizer lash primer from Target beauty box. The amazing glasswear from Globein. The card from Globein with the quotes (I’m so sad that they don’t do these any longer). The bkr water bottles from RZ and FFF. And surprise runaway favorite from our lake vacation was the blow up drink holding swan that I traded for. My cousins stole it, named it Michelle and I was instructed to get as many more as I could.

  18. Most cherished item I received ~ little plastic snail with snail cream in it from ipsy. I still haven’t gotten up the guts to try the cream yet.

    Most cherished “extra” ~ the pink furry sparkly bag from ipsy, December 2016 I think? It is the bag my phone lives in.

    Most cherished from swaps ~ Tarte unicorn bag and ipsy galaxy bag. (thank you, ladies!)

    I keep all of these out on my desk where I spend most of my time, so they are always in view. I’m not sure why I’ve been so into bags lately!

    • Oh try the snail cream! You can still save the cute snail after the cream is gone, and it works so nicely. It’s one of my favorite skin creams because it’s so light yet so moisturizing.

  19. Definitely the black Stella McCartney bag from the first Avenue A box. I use it all the time. (I also use the white Stella McCartney bag from this year’s spring box, but because it doesn’t hold as much, it gets less use.

  20. The black and white cape from the Rachel Zoe Box of Style Fall 2016 box has to be my absolute favorite. So soft and comfy! Love it!

  21. 1. Cluse watch – I now have 3 faces and maybe 10 different bands
    2. Too faced natural eye shadow palette. I had to purchase replacements
    3. White bag from Rachael Zoe. I have purchased more bags from this brand
    4. Patchology face masks. I use these a few times a week now.

  22. My Pop up limited edition Love candle (thanks Alesia 🙂 !) and Juice beauty products, they have completely transformed my skin!

  23. 1. The NES Cartridge Wooden Cutting Board from Geek Fuel. It’s a great, high quality wooden cutting board that just happens to look like an NES cartridge. I love it. It provides just the right amount of geeky flair.
    2. The Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them throw from Loot Crate DX. So warm and soft.
    3. The Dragon Claw Ring from Kal-Elle Fandom Monthly. It’s super cute and feels comfortable on. I love it so much that I traded for a spare.
    4. The Kingdom Hearts Scarf from Loot for Her and The Assassin’s Creed Scarf from Loot Crate DX. These scarves are super warm. I adore them and would be crushed if they were lost.

  24. One of my favorite items is the Emite lip and cheek tint from Glossybox.💋

  25. I haven’t gotten many non all-beauty boxes, but one thing in particular I still use this day is the Stephanie Johnson Tinseltown Jewelry Tray from the Birchbox LE Vanity Affair box. I actually have 2 because I was sent a replacement box. They are so pretty for an at home catch-all & so functional for an on-the-go jewelry tray!
