Enclosed is an info card with a back to school theme, box contents listed, and a 10% off code on the back. If you post your pictures of your box on social media and tag UncorkedBox, you may receive a surprise in your mailbox.
Pencil Case – Value $2.00?
This item goes along with the back to school theme, which is nice. The plastic pencil case is zippered with holes at the bottom to put in your standard 3-ring binder and it has “Don’t Touch…It’s My Wine Money!!!” inscribed on the front of the case. I’m not sure if I will use this, but I could put my loose change and odds and ends in the case and put in my purse.
There was a card that accompanied the pouch which indicated if you were a winner, unfortunately, I didn’t win. There’s a code for $10 off their specialty boxes in their shop on the card. There were four categories of winners: 1 $100 winner, 1 $50 winner, 5 $10 winners, and 10 $5 winners. What a nice surprise for a subscriber.
Word Search Coasters – Value $7.95
This set of twenty-five coasters has three designs, a cocktail word search, a wine word search, and a beer word search. I was happy to see these in the box. I already have the set of word search napkins that was in a previous box. I used the napkins and they are fun to have while socializing with friends or while you’re out wine tasting. I’m looking forward to adding these to my wine party accessories.
Fidget Spinner – Value $7.95?
Fidget spinners all the rage from young kids to adults and it’s meant for that individual who fidgets, has nervous energy or trouble focusing. I’m not sure if this fad is dying out but I have certainly seen them around town. Here’s a cute video of how to use the fidget spinner by an eight-year old. I must admit I fumbled with a few of the steps on how to use. I wouldn’t have purchased this for myself, that’s the beauty in purchasing a subscription box, receiving items that are new to try out that you wouldn’t necessarily buy. The link above is a random fidget spinner and there was no manufacturer information on the packaging, so the value is a guess.
Mini Notepad with Pen – Value $3.00?
This mini sixty page ruled notepad with a pen attached to the side has “Today’s Forecast….99% Chance of Wine” inscribed on the front. There’s also an elastic band that keeps the notepad closed. I will use this to take wine notes when I go wine tasting.
Emoji Bottle Stopper – Value $10.78
This is adorable and perfect timing with the new Emoji Movie that just released. The topper is bright yellow with the wink, tongue out emoji on both sides of the stopper. This fits your standard wine bottle as well as any glass coke bottle.
Sticky Note Pad – Value $4.00
This fifty sheet recycled sticky note paper has “Note To Sober Self” inscribed on the front. I’m always writing to-do lists and putting sticky notes throughout my apartment as reminders, so this is perfect for me.
Verdict: The Uncorked Box has a value of $35.68 which is above the cost of the box. This was a fun box and it aligned with the box theme. This is my favorite specialty box and I’m amazed every month with the new items that I receive, like the fidget spinner and the adorable emoji bottle stopper. The value is there and you receive fun wine accessories that would make any party fun!
