Will Leather Goods Pebble Slimfold Wallet – Retail Value $110 (POPSUGAR Exclusive)
I’m always a little bit shocked by the price of leather goods – so, naturally, I was surprised that this wallet will run you about $110! Wow!
It’s a slimline, black leather wallet. It’s similar in size and card slots to most wallets.
It has 2 right-side card slots and two slots in the folds underneath. The part I like the most – the ID card slot has a mesh front – It’s both positive and negative, though – while you won’t find your ID card getting all stuck in a plastic card slot, you’ll probably have to take is out because the mesh obscures your information enough that it’s not too readable.
Upon arrival, the leather is already nice and soft – you won’t be having to break this in. That’s always important for me – when you wear it in your back pocket, it’s nice to have it a little bit soft and bendable – it’s just more comfortable when you’re sitting down.
It also comes with its own little satchel. This could be good for divvying it up and presenting the wallet in the satchel as a standalone gift – or just to store whatever you want in it!
For me, like watches, I just love getting new wallets and switching it up a bit!
Aviator Nation Vintage Bold Trucker Hat – Retail $44.99
Like the wallet, your new trucker hat will also have that broken-in feeling when you first put it on!
This is Aviator Nation’s vintage take on the classic trucker hat.
My favorite part – it’s got a padded, almost sweatband-like rim – it’s much more comfortable than most trucker hats that I’ve worn.
Like any hat you’ll get in subscription box – it’s a snapback, so you’re good for pretty much all sizes!
I really like the subtle lightning bolt graphic. While I don’t wear trucker hats too much, I’m told they’re coming back in – so I guess POPSUGAR is doing its part in keeping me hip.

I love getting socks in subscription boxes – so this is the perfect piece of this Limited Edition box for me!
Each set comes with 2 pairs of high ankle socks, and 2 pairs of no-show socks. Typically, the fancier socks like there goe for about $12 a pair – so the $40 price is pretty reasonable.
Spoiler alert – I recently receives socks and boxers from Related Garments in my June Birchbox Man – and loved them!
These socks are really breathable while still being pretty warm. They also go against the grain a bit – the heel and toes are less padded than the rest of the sock. It makes for nice breathability, though, and I haven’t noticed too much of a downside to having less padding.
You’ll get matching no-show socks, as well! I’ll be saving these babies for Spring!
The best part? These little jelly ankle savers – these will help keep the socks up and stop your shoes from digging into your ankles.
Ok – no one wants just clothing for the holidays, right? So let’s move onto to everything else!
Wild & Wolf Limited Edition Poker Set – Retail $30
While I don’t play much poker or cards – I do always like to have a set around the house, because card games have been known to break out from time to time – so I’m prepared!
This set will arm you with everything you need to fire up a card game on the go, or at your house – it even comes with the felt.
All of the pieces are exactly what you’d expect from most sets. The chips are a little light-weight, though – probably made from a thinner plastic – so that’s a negative for primed poker players.
At $30 – it’s a nice poker set that includes a bunch of different instructions for different games. Liz and I went through a Blackjack phase when our friend was practicing to become a dealer – that was a blast, but we ended up buying a card shoe, felt, cards – the whole nine yards – so it’s nice to have a smaller, more condensed set at the ready.
Govino Whiskey Glasses – Retail $17.95
What’s better than a card game? A card game with whiskey. What’s better than a whiskey glass? One that won’t shatter when you celebrate beating your friends!
I’ve always liked the Govino wine glasses and didn’t know that they made a whiskey version!
Our favorite part about Govino – they’re dishwasher safe! You can easily pack these up and take them on-the-go with your new poker set – always at the ready!
V76 by Vaughn 4-in-1 Cleansing Foam – Retail $22
I might have a new favorite product here – a 4-in-1 foam! Shampoo, body wash, facial cleanser, and shaving cream – why buy anything else??
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m a sucker for 2, 3 and 4-in-1 bath products – so this is a home run for me. And – it smells fantastic! This is full-size, and depending on how many of the applications you plan on using it for, it’ll last for a good bit!
Vosges Haut-Chocolat Smoke & Stout Chocolate Bar – Retail $8
While there’s a lot of stuff in this box that you might want to share or gift – this incredible chocolate bar is going to be your precious.
This is a stout beer chocolate bar with burnt-caramel inside! From the outside, I was kind of not feeling the dark chocolate – but now, the bar is totally gone, so that dispute has been settled.
Verdict: This is an awesome gift box full of some new basics – and I think there’s a lot of value for the $100 price tag. ($272.94 total retail value). Like any gift box or subscription box, you’ll have to gift it to the right guy, but in general, this goes a great job of covering a few different areas of gifts – I really enjoyed unboxing it! I’m even writing this review in a new pair of Related Good socks and the Aviator Nation trucker hat!
