Here’s the info card that came with the box. I love the jewel tones. It looks like most of these items are Erin Condren exclusives, and there are some sneak peeks to discover, too!
There’s a coupon for $10.00 off a coiled notebook, too. The info card counts this as an “item” in the box, but I don’t necessarily see it as counting towards the value of the box. After all, I’d still have to pay some additional money to buy that notebook (which is usually about $20.00), so it’s not really savings… Still, if I do ever want to nab a notebook, this is a handy coupon!
Set of 3 Assorted Folded Cards and Matching Circle Stickers – Value $3.00?
These are a sneak peek product that isn’t available (at the time of writing this review), so I based the value off of a similar set of folded cards and stickers. I love growing my supply of greeting cards (it’s way easier to pull out my box of cards than run to the card store in a pinch), and these three blank-inside cards are a perfect fit for the colorful collection I’ve got going on. The metallic accents are my favorite part!
StylizedSticky Notepad in Floating Florals – Value $6.00?
I based the price of this pad on another StylizedSticky product from Erin Condren, as this sneak peek item isn’t available yet. It’s essentially a slender list-style notepad with a sticky-note-style back. I’m a big list-maker, so this is perfect for me. The flowers feel a little more like spring than fall, but the colors are really sweet!
“Grateful” Flair Pin – Value $8.00?
I love enamel pins! This one will be a festive addition to my Thanksgiving ensemble later this year. The wine colored letters sit in a gold setting, which makes for a beautiful, warm, fall palette. I wouldn’t have expected a pin in a stationery box, but I’m delighted to see one here!
Set of 6 Gift Labels – Value $5.00?
I’d never heard of gift labels before, but Erin Condren offers a bunch of ’em. (I based the price of these off of the cost of another style on her site.) I like this as an alternative to including a card with a gift. They add a festive spirit to the top of a carefully wrapped present! They’re each about the size of a small index card, so they make a big statement.
Paper Washi Tape – Value $3.00?
I’m already thinking of ways to use this Thanksgiving-ready washi tape! Maybe to seal greeting card envelopes or even to wrap around the stems of a small bouquet… The pale pink and wine color palette is so pretty, too—it’s a romantic take on traditional fall hues.
Snap-In Dashboard – Value $4.00?
This is such a clever idea! I’m so used to cool planner accessories being built for three-ring notebooks and binders. As a spiral-bound notebook fan, I’m usually left out of those add-ons. This little dry-erase panel slips right over the rings of my notebook and can easily be popped out again if I want to move it elsewhere in the pages. It’s long and great for lists, which is right up my alley, as I mentioned above. So handy! I linked to a similar product in a different pattern to give an idea of value for this exclusive item.
Set of 2 Sticker Sheets – Value $6.00?
Yay more metallic accents! The gold on this sheet of leaf-printed stickers is so pretty. It reminds me of sun-dappled on trees around sunset. The Halloween stickers are cute, too! Both sheets have a papery finish to them, so they’d work as accents for your journal or fun decorations for greeting cards and scrapbooks.
Set of 3 Dual-Tip Markers – Value $7.50?
These awesome fall colors aren’t available on the Erin Condren site, so I used a similar product to estimate value. I love writing with felt-tip pens, and these three markers feature both fine points for jotting down notes and broader tips for drawing, coloring, or big statements. The evergreen color is my favorite, I think. I also think it’s so fun that they included a bright pink in the mix! Erin Condren does a great job of putting a playful twist on typical palettes!
Metallic Fall Leaf Cover – Value $13.00?
Again, I am digging the spiral notebook accessories! These sheets can pop into a spiral notebook to replace a run-down paper notebook cover or just to add some refreshing personality to your notes. It has the same fun feeling as switching up your phone cover—Erin offers a whole bunch of designs on her site, too, and I could see myself amassing a ton of these and swapping them out all the time!
Verdict: This Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box was so much fun! I loved the colors and the clever items built for us spiral-bound folks! The value I estimated was about $55.50, which is just under the $60.00 value they guarantee. I’m guessing that difference stems from my not counting the $10.00 coupon into the value of the box. Still, it’s worth much more than its $35.00 cost.
