The product list for this box comes attached to its lid. There isn’t a ton of information about the specific brands here, but don’t worry! Most of them are noted on the tags/labels on the product themselves. I always like knowing the brands of what I get in a box—it makes it easier to find more of the products I love!
There’s also a card just about the subscription itself with a coupon on the back!
I love that this subscription is also mindful of its packaging!
The Kitchen Imp Mulling Spices, 3 oz – Value $16.00?
I couldn’t find this particular item on the Kitchen Imp site, but most of their spices go for about $8.00 per 1 or 1.5 oz. So I did a little guesstimating to get to the $16.00 value you see above. One whiff of mulling spices and I’m instantly in a cozy fall mood. This tasty blend of cinnamon, allspice, orange peel, cloves, anise, and other heart-warming spices is sure to be a delicious addition to warm wine (my favorite way to enjoy mulling spices), hot cider, or used in one of the purposes listed on the handy sheet included in the box. I’m most curious about the vinaigrette… that sounds like an amazing idea!
LuminAid Pack Lite Nova USB Lamp – Value $19.95
I feel like this inflatable lamp is most at home on a camping trip, but it could also come in handy in storm season (No power? No batteries? No problem!) or even after the sun goes down on an evening picnic in the park. It has a USB charging port, too, in case the sun isn’t out. This collapsible lamp is really convenient to toss in a tote bag or stow in a drawer until I need it again.
Here’s what its soft glow looks like after a little bit of charging.
Oh Little Rabbit Pastry Mat Tea Towel – Value $12.00
I love tea towels with cute designs. This one is more functional than just plain fun, but it definitely feels at home in the kitchen. This big towel is made of soft but sturdy flour-sack fabric that’s great for covering a workspace or drying hands or dishes. I’m not much of a baker, so I may not put this handy diagram to work, but I like the cozy vibe it gives off.
Mitten State Scarves Hidden Pocket Infinity Scarf – Value
Update: Naturally Curated let us know they included the organic, self-locking zipper variation in this season’s box, which has a value of $32. The color we received is no longer available, so I linked to a similar style.
Consider this the scarf version of those leggings that have a secret pocket for stowing your key on the go! This scarf looks ordinary enough, but it actually includes a secret zip-shut compartment big enough for a wallet, keys… even a phone! One of my least favorite tasks is having to haul a purse along with me to a party. And who likes a purse (even a small one) clunking against your hip while you’re dancing at a concert? This scarf is going to be an awesome solution. Obviously, I can’t make it too heavy—I don’t want it to strangle me as it swings around! But what a great spot to stow a key, some cash, and my phone on the go!
Sweet Revolution Organic Maple Honey Caramel Spread, 8 oz – Value $11.00
This combination is so delicious! This thick, decadent sauce almost tastes like toffee, thanks to the richness of the honey and maple. Folks who are adept in the kitchen could probably find a lot of lovely ways to integrate this sweet sauce into their baking. As for me, I’m looking forward to dolloping it onto ice cream or using it as a dip for apple slices.
Verdict: The products in this box were both practical and delightful! I will say that the solar-powered light didn’t seem to fit thematically with the other cozy, country-ish items in the box, but I found it useful nonetheless! I liked that so many of these items came from small purveyors, as well. Now, this box only had a value of about $91.00, which is slightly higher than the cost of the box when you include shipping ($14.35 to my address. Shipping is free when you purchase a yearly subscription). It’s not a steal, but if you’re digging the box’s aesthetic, then I could see it making a fun indulgence for yourself. Remember, it is only quarterly, but $75 is still a big bet on a random assortment of items! I was happy with everything I got, but if one or two pieces don’t really fit your tastes, then I could understand wanting to pass on this pricier pick.
