We have the second spoiler for the POPSUGAR Must Have x Neiman Marcus Box!

The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have x Neiman Marcus Box

The Cost: $250

The Products: Everything you need for the ultimate cocktail soiree and more! $750+ value.

We’ve teamed up with Neiman Marcus to give you a covetable box filled with treats ideal for gifting or for keeping all to yourself. This box is filled with over $750 worth of luxurious items you need for the holidays from sparkling home decor to beauty gifts that will make you glow.

Select between gold or silver hues to get a box shining with your preferred color delivered right to your door. Each box will contain all of the same items, but the color of 5 of the 9 products will vary based on your metallic preference.

Boxes ship by November 27th.

The second spoiler is:

Kim Seybert Spotlight placemat, set of 4 – Value $112

Add some sparkle to your table with these shimmering place mats. Ideal for the holidays and special occasions, they dress up any table setting. Just wipe with a damp cloth to make cleaning up after a party a breeze.

These placemats measure 15 inches across and they are SO sparkly and fun!

This is one of the items in the box with no variation. (If you ordered silver or gold you’ll be getting this set.)

And in case you missed it… The first spoiler item will be available in silver or gold (you’ll receive the metal of your choice):

Chan Luu Swarovski Crystal & Pearl Necklace and Earring Set in Gold or Silver – Value $195

Accessorize with trendy yet classic accessories with this set from Chan Luu. The Swarovski pearl necklace can be worn at any length from pendant to choker, and the dangling pearls of the hoop earrings make the classic shape more modern. This season is all about standing out, and this ultra-luxe set can be worn together or apart for an stylish look.

(POPSUGAR sent me this set early so I can answer any questions you have about the spoiler.)

The necklace is 17″ and extends to 19″. 

The earrings measure about 1.75″ in total length (top of hoop to bottom of pearl dangle.)

And here is the gold version:

(We took a lot of pictures of the packaging because it is SO gorgeous! You could definitely gift this set!)

And here is the necklace on to give you a better sense of scale:

I’m all for delicate gold jewelry, so this necklace is pretty much perfect for me!

UPDATE: And here’s Anna modeling the silver set!

What do you think of the first spoiler? (And if you’re getting a box, are you picking silver or gold?)

  1. Got most excited for that necklace!

  2. Umm, yeah this box is a no for me! The items are pretty, just not $250 pretty.

  3. Wow. I love them!!!!! So glad they are part of this box of goodies.

  4. Pretty!! I doubt I’d get much use out of them but they’d be a cool thing to have regardless. They will turn an otherwise plain tablescape festive just like that! I’ll be keeping an eye out for these in swaps.

  5. Seeing the prices for these two spoilers makes me wonder if I’m the one out of touch with reality. $112 for placemats? I feel like I could find something similar and more affordable at Target. I don’t understand. I bought 1 PS limited edition box a few years back and I was SO disappointed with the items and the value they ascribed to them. I felt duped. I’m very hesitant to ever shell out that much money ever again.

    These two spoilers are definitely not my taste, so I’m not having any trouble skipping this one.

    • No, your not out of touch. They have almost identical placemats at Target, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond and Pier 1. The most expensive being at Pier 1 for 24 piece and the lowest at at Walmart for around $7 a piece. You can also find a necklace and earring set that looks eerily similar at Avon for $9.99 so if you don’t care about the name brand but love the style you can pick up a look alike for $185 cheaper on there site.

      • Cool. I was starting to think I had crossed into some alternative dimension where people pay $112 for glitter placemats. 😳

  6. Chan Luu stuff is so expensive for what you get. I can usually duplicate it for under $20 worth of materials. (I don’t sell anyone else’s designs, of course.)

    • I thought of you immediately when I saw the jewelry spoiler! The pieces you have made with the bead subs are amazing!

  7. These are super cute! Although I still don’t think either spoiler is tempting me to buy this box.

  8. Neither spoiler seems worth the value assigned, and I doubt I would ever use the place mats. I think I will pass and just look at the swap boards for any later spoiler that suits my taste more.

  9. While I don’t have $250 to shell out for this box, I might have to keep an eye out in the swaps for these place mats, as I really like them.

  10. My wallet is safe. Phew! I always think the items in the Neiman Marcus boxes are lovely, but they don’t suit my taste/lifestyle. I suspect I’m not fancy enough for NM, lol. Can’t wait to see spoilers for the holiday special edition box.

  11. I actually really love these spoilers and would have a very difficult time making a selection between gold and silver. I prefer the necklace and earrings in silver, but gold items will look better in my kitchen/dining area. Anyhow, the necklace and earrings are gorgeous. They are a simple, classic design that should work with most people’s style. They would look just as nice with a basic sweater as they would with a nice dress. I love the idea of the sparkly placemat for the holidays. I used to have bronze glitter placemats and they were just fun. I do feel that the $112 price tag is a bit much.

    Unfortunately while I’m feeling so very tempted, I’ll continue to hold off for more spoilers. The cocktail soiree theme seemed unrealistic for a single woman living on a social worker’s salary, who rarely entertains, especially with the $250 price tag since I’m picturing all sorts of fancy barware that won’t get used. But more spoilers like this might get me to take the plunge.

  12. I really like both spoilers, but thankfully I have no interest in shelling out $250 for the box. I do think people who have bought it will be satisfied though.

  13. I’m so relieved neither of these spoilers are my taste. My wallet can breathe a sigh of relief!

    • This is such a great comment! I appreciate that you voiced your disinterest without the requisite “ewwwwww” that seems to have become the norm here.

  14. I think these are festive, and they look nicer in the close up than the far away shot. I’m not sure how easy they would be to clean though, it says wipe with a damp cloth but I’d have to see the texture in person. I like that it’s a new item we haven’t seen recently in boxes (right?) So far I like the box, and think the theme is fitting together well.

    • I agree! I wish the metal choice of the jewelry were more luxe, but I got the gold and I think I’ll be happy with the box!

  15. These placemats are so beautiful! I wouldn’t use them necessarily for table setting purposes, but I can think of a bunch of other great uses for them.

    At any rate, I didn’t order this box and I’m not about to spend $112 on four placemats, but perhaps I can DIY it!

  16. Easy pass, but certainly a festive box so far! I’m sure plenty of others will love it 😍

  17. Who has only 4 place settings for holiday dinners?! And sometimes I feel like the popsugar taste level is just too… junior. Started realizing that when we got a trucker hat … like these are the placemats my 15 year old niece would choose if her mom let her pick.

    • They don’t necessarily need to be placemats for your plates. They can be used underneath serving dishes for a cocktail party (isn’t that the theme, anyway?)

  18. Those are stunning!!! What a cool addition to this box!

  19. Undecided… I do need new holiday mats as my old ones were destroyed but I’m not sure that glitter would be my first choice. I’ll reserve judgement until I see them in person. For this price they should be quality home goods.

  20. $112. For placemats. From China. 😯

  21. Those are gorgeous, but would only be appropriate in certain settings and/or decors. Personally I have zero use for them.

    I also love the earrings but not the necklace.

    This is why I waited for spoilers this year. It’s looking like I’m just going to try to swap for the earrings and not buy the box.

    • I wish they had shown a picture of the placemats as part of a fully set table. It might be easier for me to appreciate them if I could see them in use.

      • They did – go back to the announcement here of the box going on sale. There was a pic of a bunch of women at a table – look under the plates to see them in action. See, we got a pre-spoiler spoiler. 😉

  22. These are pretty cool and so festive but aren’t going to make me pull out my wallet.

  23. I like that they seem to be sticking to a cohesive theme of holiday party. Makes the box more usable/practical in a fun way (if that makes sense). AND i love these placemats!!

  24. I am not interested in this. This was the deal breaker for this box. This does not appeal to me at all. Maybe the LE Winter will be more to my taste. I am excited to see the spoilers for that one.

    • Agreed. No interest in this one.

  25. Hmm… I did say over in the forum the other day that it could be table linens of some type. So i was kinda close. lol

    This is gonna sound super weird, but I would love to have ONE of them! I usually have a table runner going on but I do have some really awesome large twinkly shiny place mats that I use around the holidays. I can put a nice decorative candle holder out and it looks very nice. 🙂 At least to me! lol

    I’ve been teetering between this box and the Luxor Holiday box but this one is losing ground since I Iike the jewelry but know I won’t wear it.

    • I would love 8-12 of them for my dinner table! Okay 8 would be great. I think they’re really pretty and festive. They’re also tremendously pricey for 4 that are made in China.

  26. I like both of these spoilers! I’ll totally use these placemats for decorating here in New Orleans area, we do Christmas and then go right into Mardi Gras season with these colors!
    Very cute

    • Another Nola girl? Me, too! I’ve found 3 #nolachicks here so far. Welcome, Jodie!

      • Make that four #nolachicks, darlin’!

      • Five!

        • Six! 😀

          • Seven!!

    • NOLA is still one of my absolute favorite places to visit! I love everything about your city, especially the people…always happy, kind and welcoming.

      • For a second I thought you were going to write, I love everything about your city except the people… XD

    • I wrote my comment around the same time, or a little before, about Mardi Gras…haha! So funny that this brought out the NOLA chicks. I’m uptown, close to downtown, right in the middle of the city. I do find us a very welcoming bunch of people and will greet everyone on the street. So, come on down and visit. We’ll be serving you dinner on these placemats, haha!

  27. Those placemats are gorgeous!

    • Yes They Are.

  28. Very reasonable price for the placemats. I’d have loved charger plates, but I will get so much use out of these for Mardi Gras.

  29. Wow! Nice placemats! I checked the NM website and 1placemat retails for $28. 4 placemats would cost $112.

    Kim Seybert Spotlight Placemat
    Item: NMF18_HB6DS
    Price: $28.00
    Qty: 1
    Color: GOLD
    In Stock

  30. They’re really pretty, but $112 for placemats is a bit ridiculous. Who uses them anymore? Not to mention there’s only 4 in a set. My taste runs cheap lol neither spoiler appeals to me.

  31. Totally unnecessary, but I feel like I need these! Absolutely love them!

    • Same. I think I’m getting it just for these. Never thought placemats would help me decide. Still $450 left in the box. Four more silver or gold items. Two more non-silver or gold items.

      • I figure I would buy the necklace and earrings for $125. I would splurge on those placemats for the $112. Still have a lot of items and value to go. So even if a coupon comes up it’s worth it to me to get it in the color (silver) I’d like it in. Plus, I can give away gifts for Christmas, hopefully.

  32. These would only go with a certain level of decor, and fortunately for my wallet my decor (house full of kids, dogs and dirty dishes) doesn’t fit the bill. Lol

  33. I adore the earrings and necklace. I ordered the silver box but in the photo I may be more inclined to wear the gold more often. Dang!! Maybe someone will want to swap colors. I will wait to see them in person first. Love the gold!!!

    • I ordered the gold box but I like the silver jewelry better! I agree about waiting to see it in person, but I’m thinking there will be plenty of people wanting to swap colors. 🙂

  34. Liz, I do have a question. You might have explained it in your spoiler. When you wipe the placement I am picturing loose items from what it looks like or are the colors and design under a top coat if that makes any sense? I think these could be used to also put my special serving dishes on for get togethers. The colors look very festive. Also, I am glad it is not just a traditional green or red, even though I love those colors because I could use these for different occasions. I love home and entertaining items.

    • There’s no glitter fall out if that’s what you mean? Sorry if I’m not understanding correctly!

      • I think maybe the same thing I’m curious about, are the top of the placemats smooth with a type of coating or textured to the touch? They’re easy to clean if first. Also, people could use these on vanities or bureaus, under lamps on nightstands etc depending on who they know for gifting or personal style.

        • Oh got it! They are textured, and the glitter is oversized – more like confetti. Hope that helps!

          • Yes, thank you. The texture seems so detailed so I just wanted to clarify. I could see these also as Cat mentioned being on vanities, etc. Thanks for the information.

  35. The rv is laughable. Glad I didn’t splurge on this one…

  36. No…….. placemats.. for $112? Oh no.

    • Yah! Maybe nice glass charger plates would be worth that much, but for PVC glitter confetti placemats? Not so much.

    • Plenty of high end home decor costs this much or more. It’s NM luxury box and high end items are to be expected.

      • I realize some people pay more for higher cost brands, but I wouldn’t consider made in China polypropylene/pvc/confetti to be high end. For $28 a piece, one could get gorgeous handcrafted fair trade artisan placemats, or some nice charger plates.

        Plus, home decor items are very hit/miss in terms of style and color. Glitter/silver confetti aren’t going to fit in everyone’s color scheme athome year round, and with only 4 there aren’t enough to set a table for eight at a seasonal dinner party.
