Every year, POPSUGAR releases a POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Winter Box – perfect for gifting or treating yourself!

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.

FYI – if you are interested in purchasing this box, it is still available! 

The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Winter 2017 Box

The Cost: $100

The Products: Embrace the chilly weather in style. This limited edition box has everything from beautiful decor to adorn your dining room table to minimalistic accessories to compliment your chunky sweaters.


Each box comes with a card detailing the items included:

Now, on to the items!

Tribe Alive Luxe Brass Handle Handbag in Black – Value $168

This bag is made of genuine vegetable-tanned leather and measures 9.5″H x 10.5″W x 3.5″D.

It has an interior open pocket and here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:

I’m very impressed with the quality of this bag, and I love the minimalist styling. Plus, the brass circle handles are such a unique detail.

CLUSE La Bohème Rose Gold Watch – Value $99

This watch comes in a gorgeous storage case. (It could double as a soft eyeglasses case, too!)

(Customers get to pick this grey leather band or a black leather band.)

This watch is the perfect weight in my opinion. Not too heavy, but not too light to feel cheap.

This feels like a classic piece that you could wear for years, too.

Here it is on:

Odeme Dessert Plate Set – Value $27

Odeme has been featured in POPSUGAR boxes in the past and I love their items, so I was thrilled to see this plate set in the box!

These dessert plates measure 6 inches across and feature two different designs.

I love that these patterns are great for the holidays, but will work all-year round, too!

And extra good news – they are dishwasher safe!

Here they are with some macaroons to give you a better sense of scale:

And that napkin in the bottom corner is our next item!

Pehr Napkin Set – Value $40

Pehr: another one of my all-time favorite brands to see in a POPSUGAR box!

These 100% cotton napkins have a fringe edge detail:

And they measure 18 X 18 inches.

Herbivore Jasmine Glowing Hydration Body Oil – Value $44

What a perfect beauty item to include in a winter box – and I’m a fan of the Herbivore brand, too! (You may have noticed a pattern with this review – I really love all these brands!)

This body oil absorbs well and is super hydrating, too. Plus it is ingredient conscious and vegan, too! And the natural jasmine scent is lovely! (If you’re not a fan of floral scents, this would make a lovely gift, though!)

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Rollerball – Value $26

This perfume is a blend of Sparkling Jasmine Accord and Sleek Woods Accord.

If you read my reviews often, you probably know I’m not a perfume wearer, so this is the only item in the box that isn’t a win for me. (But! This box has 7 items instead of the usual 6, so I can’t complain!)

Vosges Haut-Chocolat Holiday Cracker – Value $10

Again, I think this is pretty much the perfect treat item to include in a Winter box! How festive and fun!

(Perfect for gifting too, if you can part with it!)

The cracker includes 6 bon bons. Here is one close up:

These are some seriously fancy chocolates! They are made with a dark chocolate shell filled with a liquid chocolate caramel. You can definitely taste the salt in the caramel, and it perfectly balances out the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate. And the sea salt is a Hawaiian black lava salt that gets its dark obsidian color from activated charcoal!

Marne was our taste tester for these chocolates, and she loved them. Her exact quote on how they tasted: “Very decadent, VERY decadent.”


Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $414! I think that’s amazing! Two quality leather fashion items, two high-end beauty items, two super practical but fun home items, and a decadent chocolate treat – seems like the perfect box to me! Plus, the minimalist style of this box is perfect for me, too!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, as of publication, this box was still available!

Coupon – No coupon available for limited edition boxes.

Value Breakdown: At $100 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Purse: $40.58

  • Plates: $6.52
  • Napkins: $9.66

  1. This box looks like a Luxor Box! I actually received a watch like that last year in one! Good thing for me I passed on the box. Pretty, thou!

  2. Gorgeous box, wow. Great curation!

  3. I want everything but the purse and plates if anyone wants to split. Not sure how splitting works but let me know if anyone is interested.

    • I’ll buy your purse off you!

        • I’m still on the waitlist for the swaps site 🙁 I’ll check again if/when I eventually get off the waitlist. Thanks though

  4. Was going to try and keep this as a surprise for myself but I just couldn’t help but look! My tracking shows my men and women’s boxes are supposed to be here tomorrow. Yea!! Love everything.

    • lol same here! I made it maybe 3 minutes before I caved and looked. Love the whole box, can’t wait to get it!

    • i’m on the fence about this one. everything is so nice but i’ve already got the december popsugar and winter FFF coming. maybe there will be a coupon on this in the next week or so????

  5. I just got home and jumped on. I need this box. Are they still available? I guess i’ll know soon.
    crossing fingers

  6. I really want the watch and the napkins. Anyone want to do a box split?

  7. I love this box. I am really excited to get such great items at such a great price. If there is anything I decide I do not like I will gift it. Anyone would love to receive any of these items. Great job Popsugar.

  8. I’m definitely interested in selling or swapping the purse I’ll receive (tomorrow 11/29). If anyone is interested in it, please feel free to let me know! I’ll check back to see.

    • I’m interested in buying the purse off you!

    • did you sell the purse?

      • Pauline – are you interested in buying the purse ? I want to buy another box but don’t want to go through the “ordeal” of swapping… 🙂 if you wanted the purse you could buy it for the price breakdown above plus shipping…….. I swapped my first one already…… 🙂
        ms2spyder @ hot mail dot com

  9. I am in love with the purse. Anyone interested in selling theirs? Not sure I want to get the whole box although the watch is tempting too. 🤔

    • Yes, me! Soup777 at rocketmail dot com. 🙂

    • Kelly – if you’re still looking for a purse to buy, give me a shout out – I want to buy a second box but don’t want to swap a second bag if I don’t have to……. cost breakdown above plus shipping? 🙂 ms2spyder @ hot mail dot com

  10. I would love the oil, napkins, and purse.
    Does anyone want to split? You could have plates, watch, chocolate and perfume.
    let me know… :))

    • Hey Melissa! I’d be interested in this if you’re still looking for a split! Email me – natalienicolenelson at gmail.

  11. If anyone wants to split their box 📦 I am interested in black watch, plates napkins and chocolates. But I could do without plates and chocolate if that’s a deal breaker

    • Hi Jessica.
      I would love to split with you. The only thing where we overlap is the napkins. We both want the napkins…haha!

      • I really probably should do without the napkins. They are beautiful though. My kids would probably ruin them anyway 😂

  12. I rec’d a FedEx tracking e-mail from PopSugar on 11/20 however, it still shows ‘the tracking number cannot be found’. I really hate FedEx – wish they would use UPS instead.

    I am just o.k. with this box – IMO last years was so much better. I will gift most of the items as they are just not that exciting to me. Melamine plates for $27? I can get something similar at Dollar Tree for $4. Does anyone wear a watch anymore? I am excited about the body oil and perfume and I am sure I can find someone that likes the purse and napkins. Glad for everyone that is excited!

    • I am in the same boat! Both the men’s and women’s box show that the tracking number can’t be found! I wonder if we will be receiving this week like some of the others!

    • I contacted them for the same reason and was told that USPS is delivering with a delivery date of today, 11/29. So I put a mail hold on so they wouldn’t be sitting out on the porch with a risk of theft but no package yet. The tracking shows it hasn’t moved from Sparks Nevada for a week. I wished we could choose UPS shipping, at least I can have it delivered to a UPS location and pick up there. And UPS has reliable tracking.

    • The same thing happened to me! They sent me a new tracking number, but nothing has updated! I have been waiting for a delivery date for almost 2 weeks!! What is going on?!

    • Same. Received email that shipment was on its way on 11/20 with tracking number that fedex doesn’t recognize. Emailed Popsugar support on 11/29 to find out what is up. Received an email response saying they would check with their warehouse and get back to me but I’m still waiting. Just sent another email. Please post if anyone finds out what is up.

  13. I’d love to buy the plates and napkins from someone.

  14. I want the watch and bag- I’d love to split a box with someone

    • I want all but watch and bag! I’ll split! amriley at hotmail dot com, or click on my name fir my swap page.

    • You can buy that watch on ruelala for 69.00 right now. All the colors are there

      • But it’s only $24 if you can find someone to box split! I want everything but the watch, purse, and perfume if anyone wants to split a box at the prices Liz listed above. I’ll even take the perfume. amriley at hotmail dot com.

        • That’s the perfect split for me-those are the only 3 items I want! My box is supposed to arrive Thursday if you want to split.

          • Hi Nichole,
            I would be interested in this box split as well if you are still looking for a partner, interested in everything except the watch, bag and perfume. My name is the same on the swap boards and the forum.

  15. I love the purse and the watch. I know I won’t use the napkins, rollerball, or herbivore (lavender allergies) so I’ve listed those for swaps. Click my name if you are interested.

  16. I would love to swap or buy the plates from someone for a 2nd set – look perfect for new year’s eve!!

    • I’d love to sell the plates to you! those are the only things I’m not interested in!

  17. I’m in a decluttering phase of my life (finally!) so I didn’t get this box & will let my PSMH sub go after it runs out Feb, but that’s a nice box. I love that perfume! They put a little 3ml sample in 2015’s Winter box.

  18. I can’t remember if these limited edition boxes ever go on sale but I NEED the purse and watch. If anyone wants to go in with me, let me know 😊 I know it’s a long shot 🤗

    • Haha I actually want everything else except the bag and the watch! Want to split a box?

      • If your other prospective box split does t go through I’m interested. Gliemsara @ yahoo.com

      • Yes! Email me

        Missyerable at yahoo

    • I’d be up for a box split with you getting the watch and purse and me getting the other items. Please email me at dfahrenk at hotmail if you’re still interested and leave a reply comment here so I know to look for it. Thanks!

  19. Oh this is so tempting but I struggle against paying full price for any pop sugar box. This one seems good enough though that they won’t have to sell it at a discount. The FOMO is real.

    • I’m right there with you!

  20. Can you tell me if the plates are plastic or ceramic please?

    • Im wondering the same thing. On the linked site it shows other dessert plates made with melamine

    • They are melamine. Hope that helps!

  21. I need this box. But are the plates glass/ceramic?

  22. I am so glad I passed this time around! There is not one thing that I like and I already have a Cluse watch. Besides I am all spent out!

  23. I like everything except the watch (I don’t wear one) & the napkins (Pehr is notoriously impossible to get rid of.)

    At $100 though, not sure if it’s worth the hassle for swaps. 🤔

    (Predict me buying a box in 5, 4, 3…)

    • Vanessa, I would be willing to take the watch and napkins off your hands. I have never swapped because it just takes too much time that I am not willing to spend. I am willing to do a box split with you. If you’re interested, contact me sil_olbear at hotmail dot com.

    • The only thing Pehr that’s difficult to swap is the tuner and I think that’s because it was in a lot of mystery boxes. The other two Pehr items that we’ve received, the bin and the throw are hugely popular and are unicorns for a lot of people. 🙂

      • Tuner was supposed to be “runner.” Dangit.

  24. Probably no point in waiting for a coupon, right? I think last year they offered a free December box as well..

  25. I like about half of the box. The bag seems just a bit young for me and I’m trying to repurpose it. It’s not easy because of the rings. I’ve never been a fan of Odeme, and I doubt that they will have a coupon. I think the summer one was so bad, they offered the coupon. I’m on the fence on this one. I still haven’t used last year’s purse.

    • I want the purse and watch only. If you want to split. Unless you also want the watch 🙂

  26. Perfection

    • Agree! ❤️

      • Yes! I think I like this box more then PS last winter box, and I LOVED that box.

  27. I am thrilled! Will be buying my first house soon, and the plates and napkins are happily received- they’ll be put away for the new house 🙂 The watch and bag are beyond perfect, I adore Herbivore’s Jasmine oil (i own the smaller version) . That chocolate looks delish (but will probably save and bring it to a holiday event) and I love rollerball perfume, i hope this smells good. all in all, $100 for this box is a steal and i am happy that i bought it. I canceled my PSMH monthly box after last month’s monstrosity.

  28. Now I just need the Happy Rebel spoilers and I can stop checking for them every 2 minutes. 🙂 Any idea when we’ll have them here?

    • After reading your comment I realized that I have 15 freaking boxes arriving to me.

      It is going to be box city. I have warned my husband so he won’t freak out!

      He is not happy with the fact I spend almost $1k on boxes!

      3 Fab Fit Fun
      Add ons on each box
      2 Rachel Zoe boxes
      4 ASOS orders
      2 Julep orders
      I PopSugar Must Have
      I Ipsy
      1 Happy Rebel
      1 Blue Apron

      • Wow, I thought I was the only one who got 3 FFF boxes. lol

        Let’s see, I’m waiting on:

        3 FabFitFun boxes
        Rachel Zoe Box of Style
        Happy Rebel + 2 Mystery boxes
        2 Ipsy
        Julep + an order
        Adore Me

        I think that’s it. Unless you want to count 2 Sephora orders, Urban Decay order, Fortune Cookie soap order and a Tarte order.

        The crazy thing is that I have cancelled a lot of subscriptions this year, I think I have some sort of sickness. Really, I was never like this until I got my first FFF editor’s box (one with the modcloth scarf). I immediately ordered a second box because 1 just wasn’t enough. So much stuff, but apparently there is SO much more that I am convinced that I need. I am not well.

      • You know we are all getting some incredible values so I know my house will be decorated in pinkboxes shortly as well as others but the values are amazing!

        By the way, what is ASOS? I am having a brain freeze but I am curious on which box that is.

        • ASOS is no a sub box but a clothing store that is full of petite sized clothing. A lot of it is too trendy but I did snag some great age appropriate things at their Cyber Monday sale!

  29. looks fantastic – <3 it!

  30. Any chance anyone wants the bag and possibly the perfume?

    Probably a long shot but would love to split this with someone!

    • I want the purse and watch. Hardest items to split.

  31. I need the watch!!! Will swap my soul for it lol. Please click my name if you are getting rid of it!! I have tons listed and unlisted.

    • Marissa, I left a message for you – food for thought 😋

    • Not sure which color you are looking for but I’ll be putting up a black one. I have a favorite watch already.

  32. What about the Men’s box? Will they not give more spoilers? I really need some more gifts for the men in my life but I just can’t buy the higher price boxes without several spoilers.

    • Agreed!!

    • I am really curious to know what is going to be in the men’s box. I think it could be a good way to split up some gifts for different people. But I wanna know! LOL

  33. Watch for my sister – swapped the bag, Muse for my boss and everything else is for me!!!! ❤️😎👍🏻 LOVE it!!!

  34. This is a really nice box but it’s hard to believe it’s $40 for napkins. Really?… The watch is nothing special, in my opinion, and i thought it was a risky choice to include it in the box, since most of the time a watch represents a status statement so not anyone can use it. Overall, it’s ok box for me but nothing extraordinary.

    • Anyone CAN use the watch. You could be a millionaire and wear a Hello Kitty watch if you feel like it. You don’t have to show strangers that you have money. The people you do care about, already know. In my opinion

      • I agree!

    • Status statement??? Lol I’ve been wearing a watch since HS.

    • Watch = status statement?!? Oops. I guess I’ve been wrong all these years when I just used my watch to find out the time or date at any given moment. 🤔

      • Haha!!!

    • Why is a watch a status symbol? That is an odd comment.

      And who cares what you wear? I am not out to impress anybody that is for sure!

    • I want a Tiffany or Cartier watch for myself and a Rolex for my mom. I get what you’re saying. I just can’t afford them ☹️ I do wear any brand of watch that’s comfortable though. I’m the same with handbags. I like a nice brand but until I have more $$ I get what’s cute and affordable or what I get in a box!

  35. Love!

  36. I think I need this box… Thanks for the review Liz!

  37. OMG…this box is absolutely awesome! Trying so hard to resist it…I literally love every item in the box! That almost never happens.

  38. Hi Liz, what size is the Herbivore oil? It looks more like the 2 oz, than the full size 4 oz. Thanks!

    • It’s 4 ounces. Sorry, I just realized I didn’t include the photo of the box it comes in, so I just added that to the review. Hope that helps! 🙂

  39. Love love love this box! Merry Christmas to me!

  40. This is sooo tempting. I would use everything in it.

  41. Just ordered. Thanks, Liz!

  42. I contemplated on treating it as a surprise or checking your review – but here I am – and I LOVE IT! I no longer subscribe to Popsugar but I make sure I always get their Winter Limited Edition as a gift because it’s always worth it. I love everything in the box. Thank you for your wonderful review.

  43. Not a fit for me but glad others like it and will get to enjoy it.

  44. I love tje brands included and as soon as I saw the napkin I knew it had to be Pehr. I love that those napkins can be used for other things. Can’t wait to get mine!!!!!

  45. I am just beyond excited about this one. I am checking my tracking number like a madwoman, so getting the spoilers was both a blessing and a curse (I know what’s coming, and it’s not here yet!! )

    • The site says it ships December 1st but maybe some shipped sooner?

  46. Aaaaaand it’s mine. Woohoo!!! 😀

    I will be looking to sell (at percentage of the the box cost, of course) or swap the watch. … Probably. I might give it to my sister…

    Now we’re just need to see more spoilers from the men’s box! 😀

    • I will buy it from you! Are u on the swap site??

    • I need the watch and purse if you’re looking to sell!

      • I’ll be selling my purse if you’re interested 🙂

  47. Can you update the title to say it is the “for her” LE Box???? I clicked it hoping it was the “for him” one and the suprise was blown. It was my fault really, I should have just left it alone, but just in case anyone else wants to know one but not the other. Lol

    • I’m so sorry, Misti! Just updated the title. Sorry again!

  48. Wow. This is probably one of the best they have had!

    • Completely agree!

  49. Yay! Really happy I bought this box this year. The only thing I won’t use is the watch so it will make an excellent gift 🙂 Cannot wait to get my box in!
