Mommy Mailbox December 2017 Review
Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and brands. The theme this month was “Merriment” and the box was curated by blogger, Shanis Walter.
Lulu’s Jewels Garden Flowers Calendar – Retail Value $32.95
This 12 month calendar features individual cards for each month. They each feature a different beautiful flower. The cards are 5×7 inches and while they don’t come with a stand or easel, Mommy Mailbox was thoughtful enough to provide one in the box (below) so that you can stand up the card and display in on your desk or counter.
Recycled Wood Card Holder – Retail Value $1.95
This small piece of wood will hold a holiday card, business card or is perfect for displaying the included flower calendar. It’s made from recycled wood and has a little notch cut into it to hold the item you wish to display.
Canvas Navy Tassel Hoop Earrings – Retail Value $14.00
These delicate hoops have navy colored threads which dangle. I’m kind of over the tassel trend by now personally so these aren’t too exciting for me.
Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil – Retail Value $13.00
This pencil by Ofra is called “universal” and is meant to work for most hair colors and skin tones according to their website. I’m so fair and blond that I don’t even use eyebrow pencils because it looks so silly on me. I may try this as an eyeliner instead.
Here is a swatch on my wrist. As you can see this is a medium brown color and this swatch was done with multiple swipes so you could build it up to a darker color as well.
I Sleigh Mug – Estimated Value $8.00
This adorable mug is a Mommy Mailbox exclusive. I like the “I Sleigh” version playing off the popular “slay” term, but with a reindeer/holiday twist.
Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa Mix – Buy a box of 15 envelopes for $5.69
What could be more perfect to pack with a mug, but a serving of hot cocoa mix? This cocoa mix was absolutely divine. I loved how rich it was – a real special treat for a bitter cold day.
Melville Candy Chocolate Peppermint Spoon – Buy 24 for $49.99
This chocolate dipped spoon with crushed peppermint candies and mini marshmallows is a fun treat to add with the cocoa and mug. It was delicious stirred into the cocoa and gave a nice minty taste without being overpowering.
Verdict: I thought the “Merriment” theme was nice for December. I thought they did a good job of making the box seem festive without making it a Christmas themed box which not everyone celebrates. The value this month was approximately above $70 which is well above the cost of the box ($33.95 a month and free shipping).
