Home for the Holidays, A Hand-Crafted Coloring Book – Retail Value $8.95
I couldn’t find the same edition of this silver metallic coloring book online, but luckily, the retail value was listed on the back by the barcode! Coloring is a nice way to wind down during the busy holiday season. I like that the patterns in this book are sophisticated holiday patterns, rather than just obvious characters like Santa or snowmen. If you don’t feel like coloring, you could still put these pages to work in scrapbooks or even use them as wrapping paper for small stocking stuffers.
Pocket Knife with Flint
Wow! This is the most adventurous thing I’ve seen in one of these boxes, for sure! There’s no branding on it to identify a price, unfortunately. I’m no outdoorswoman, but I have been wanting to get more into hiking and camping in the upcoming year. If I do end up out in the wilderness, this sharp, foldable knife will probably come in lots of handy. There’s even a little bit of flint with an orange handle that you can use to spark a fire with some dry kindling. Here’s my first try…
Flashing Christmas Lights Necklace
There are a lot of products like this online, so I’m hesitant to give it an official value, but I’d bet it’s worth around $5.00 if that. It’s not the highest quality necklace (the bulbs are made from really lightweight plastic), but it is a lot of fun. The little connector in the back has a button that turns it on or off, plus there are three settings you can page through, too—rapid blinking (which felt more like creepy Halloween strobe lights), fast blinking (slightly slower than the last one), and slower, alternating lights (my favorite setting, where alternating lights fade on and off). It’s fun to wear, or to use as decoration for a smaller, tabletop Christmas tree!
The Verdict: This box was perfect for the holiday season, that’s for sure. I could see it being a little underwhelming if you don’t celebrate Christmas, though many of the coloring pages speak to a broader “winter” theme that’s a little more crowd-pleasing. My family does do Christmas, so I found the box fun and festive. And hey, if you have a real tree, that knife could come in handy for trimming wily branches! Or breaking through the thick packing tape on holiday packages arriving in the mail!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can always sign up, but what you’ll get in your box is totally random!
Value Breakdown: This box cost $9.99. I couldn’t find reliable prices for a few of the items in the box, but I can say that I got at least $8.95 in value out of that book alone. That’s almost the cost of the whole subscription! If you break it down by item, the average value of each of the three surprises, based on the $9.99 price of the box, is $3.33.
