Now, on to the items!
Chloe + Isabel Pavé Bar Long Pendant Necklace – Value $42
This is the first time ever that POPSUGAR gave subscribers the opportunity to pick the color variant of an item! (You could pick between this silver version or the antique gold version.)
And I also love that this necklace arrives boxed and ready to gift in case you don’t want to keep it for yourself!
This necklace is hypoallergenic and nickel-free, and measures about 30 inches long with a 2-inch extender.
I really love the clean lines and subtle sparkle of this necklace – plus the length should work for just about everyone!
Here is Marne modeling the necklace for us:
Tilo Twilight Scarf – Value $98
This scarf is stunning! It’s a lightweight sheer weave with delicate eyelash fringe on the edges.
And it has a grid sequin pattern throughout:
Here it is on:
It’s the perfect amount of sparkle in my opinion! (The gray color may vary a bit from scarf to scarf due to the hand dyeing and washing technique.)
Bauble Bar Sugar and Spice Coaster Set – Value $38
Yay for sparkly home items!
These coasters are made with glitter embedded in the acrylic, so you get all the sparkle without any glitter fallout.
They are lightweight and semi-translucent when you hold them up to the light:
I love that these are festive for the holidays, but also great for all year round, too! Here they are with the tray from the August box:
(It’s a perfect setting for New Year’s Eve!)
I am so excited about this sugar scrub for a number of reasons:
- It’s 16 ounces! (Most body scrubs are usually half the size.)
- It’s ingredient conscious! (Paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free.)
- It smells like sugar cookies! (If you loved the Lalicious Body Oil from the October 2016 Box, you will love this, too.)
- It’s moisturizing without leaving your skin oily. (I think this is the perfect scrub formula: exfoliation with just a touch of hydration from the Coconut and Sweet Almond Oils!)
And this scrub also comes with a coupon for 20% off any order at Lalicious!
Wild Ophelia Sugar Cookie Milk Chocolate Bar – Value $3.50
WOW! I was expecting a sweet treat in the December box, and POPSUGAR did not disappoint!
This is a milk chocolate bar made with bits of buttery toffee, gluten-free sugar cookie crumbles, and sea salt! (Plus it is fair-trade and Non-GMO!)
ASHKAHN Gift Tags – Value $12
This set includes 10 tags that say “FOR YOU” – pretty simple and should go with just about any wrapping paper.
(And again, I like that these are great for the holidays, but not holiday-specific.)
They look good with the wrapping paper from the November box, too!
Pier 1 Imports Vanilla Bourbon Scented Candle – Retail Value $14.95
(This item is a Special Extra in the box!)
(You’ll receive one of several different cocktail-inspired candles. The candle has a burn time of 42 hours.)
I wasn’t sure if the Bourbon would be overwhelming for me, but I found it to be subtle and sophisticated. (Plus the glass vessel and hammered copper-style lid didn’t hurt!)
And this candle comes with a coupon for $10 off any purchase at Pier 1!
Minimum purchase of $10.01 required. Expires January 31st, 2018.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $243!!! (Not including the value of the Pier 1 coupon.) WOW! This might just be my favorite POPSUGAR Must Have Box of all time! I love all the items, the brands, and everything is useful and feels special, too. (Plus I love that this box is perfect for the holidays, but everything works post-December, too.) And you could break this box into multiple gifts if you are willing to part with it!
