And with each box, Happy Rebel Box donates a portion of the proceeds to charity. For this box, they selected Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support.

Now, on to the items!

Croc Embossed Box Set in Gold – Value Listed $54

These boxes measure 4.5″ x 10″ x 7.5″ and 3.25″ x 8.5″ x 6.5″.

Subscribers could pick between gold, grey, or white boxes. (The grey version has sold out, but if you subscribe today, you can still pick between gold or silver. Reply to your order confirmation email with your color preference.)

(I’m someone who keeps fancy subscription boxes for storage, so you know I’m loving these!)

The outside features a faux croc bronze gold material, with matching metallic hardware.

And inside, they are lined with black felt. And the smaller one fits inside the larger one:

These are perfect for helping me give my office a more clutter-free look. (Too often, my office just has beauty samples everywhere!)

Goldsby Vase – Value Listed $44

This vase measures a little over 9 inches tall.

The smokey design of the glass is gorgeous! Here it is with flowers:

I’m thinking this vase would look lovely with some dark and dramatic flowers, too. (Or maybe just all white flowers?) Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Glass Sphere – Value Listed $58

This sphere measures about 5 inches tall including the glass stand. I think it might be my favorite item in the box! I can’t even explain exactly why I’m drawn to it so much, but I love it! (I collected little glass figures when I was a kid, maybe this is the grown-up version?)

Metallic Star Trio – Value Listed $34

These pieces are ceramic with metallic glazes and measure about 5 inches tall. (The bronze one matches the boxes perfectly.)

Golden Urchin – Value Listed $18

This piece measures about 4 inches across and can also be hung on the wall.

Here it is with everything else on the shelf in my office to give you a better sense of scale:

Can you spot the tiny picture of Buckles?

Verdict: This box has a retail listed value of about $208. I think that’s good for a $100 box that focused on home goods. (Especially factoring in the shipping weight + packaging of this box.) I like that this box gave me everything I needed to complete the bookshelf in my office, too. (If you prefer to scour Home Goods and other places for discounted decor items, the value might not be there for you, though.)

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, and you can also buy this box as a one time purchase directly from their shop if you don’t want to subscribe. UPDATE – this box has sold out.

Coupon – No coupons available at this time.

  • Box Set: $25.96

  1. I personally love this box. Little accents for a guest room or bathroom shelving! I’m moving into a bigger house soon so I’m keeping these goodies packed up in the box and ready for the movers! I think Happy Rebel did a great job! One of my favorite boxes thus far. Then again, it’s only my 3rd box so we’ll see!

  2. I was disappointed by the quality. Everything felt cheap. The vase has clear drips running down the sides from the sealant used on the gold. The star trios has goopy glaze and bare spots, not to mention stickers impossible to remove. The glass sphere is too small for the base and wobbles terribly. I’m almost positive the boxes are simply stiff cardboard. The sea urchin was the only thing that I thought was any good.
    I also missed the uniqueness and sometimes edgy vibe from past boxes. Everything was massed produced in China. Past boxes have had stories about the artists and creators.
    For a $100 Box, it was all underwhelming. I’ll keep it for now and just hope this was simply a hiccup.

  3. Looks like I ordered just in time. I really like the items in the box, especially the vase.

  4. Hello all! We just wanted to update everyone to let them know this box is now sold out. A big thank you and congratulations to everyone that scored one. Enjoy!

  5. I loved this box! I was able to get the gray boxes, and those, the vase, and the urchin (a fun surprise!) were a huge win for me. I don’t like the bows and could have done without the sphere. But those can be gifted or swapped. Overall win!

  6. The boxes are beautiful (I selected gray), and I love the urchin (hope I can swap for more)! The other items are a miss for me. The vase is beautiful but my decor is mostly turquoise and beachy, so it doesn’t fit. The stars are gorgeous but again not quite the right style/colors. We already have a glass sphere globe of similar size so can’t find a good spot for the plain sphere. I think it was cool to receive a box of all home goods though, even though all items weren’t to my taste.

    • If you can’t swap for more Target has a set of 3 for $15. Good luck.

      • Good to know! I will check those out. Thanks, Anna!

  7. While everything seems really nice and does come together as a style /color profile, or just seems like “here’s a lot of $#!t to put on your desk.” None if it really DOES anything other than look good. Maybe if it were a high end diffuser instead of a vase, or a jewelry tree instead of a seemingly random metallic urchin I’d feel differently.

    • Agreed. Its stuff that looks nice but that’s it. I live in an apartment so I have to be pretty picky about what purely decorative stuff gets to stay.

  8. Absolutely stunning, especially the boxes. I love how you arranged everything. The last thing I need is more stuff but it’s certainly tempting (and I’d rather have the items in this box as office decor than the usual office-specific things I see in subscription boxes)

  9. I don’t feel as if the styles match and appears curated by an amateur stylist. There’s contemporary, classic and traditional styles…yet not one piece is “style forward” and nothing ties together. It reminds me of shopping at Tuesday Morning, in a mad rush to decorate an empty guest room for the holidays.

    Each piece may have its merits independently…my favorite is the vase. I styled with clear stones on the bottom and tall, lightweight branches, set sparsely from standard florist stock at Whole Foods. The vase is pretty but it lacks weight of expensive glass vases. Wide top, narrow bottom, light weight density did prove limiting for fresh, statement bouquets.

    The sphere is a bit of a “hot mess” for me. For my office/desk, it’s an accident waiting to happen, being on the small is size, the ball isn’t very secure on the podium. Also, I have other items that may even coordinate but they’re engraved…this piece reminds me of an unfinished award or commemorative token of appreciation.

    Ultimately , I donated the all but the vase. The boxes I filled with extra skincare for a shelter and the knick knacks are on an ARC shelf locally.

    Sorry HR but I get better curation from my local West Elm sale shelves…

    • I never thought of the ball being an accident waiting to happen but YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! My tile would crack if that rolled off of any surface.

      I didn’t order this box as I don’t need any more home decor in my life right now. I think the value is there for someone who liked almost everything and didn’t have a Marshalls/Tuesday Morning in their life.

  10. Wow the curation in this box is awesome! And this might sound crazy but I think some black roses would look good in the beautiful and stylish vase!!

  11. Idk, these all read as “tchotchkes I got at the thrift store” to me.

    • I’m not sure what thrift store you go to but I wanna know! The thrift stores where I am definitely don’t have this nice and good quality decor like these pieces that’s for darn sure!!

      • Housing works had a pretty great selection.

  12. The shelf setup you pictured makes everything come together so nicely.

    • Yes it does!

  13. Everything in the box is nice. The sphere is my new desk accessory, since I always make the joke about not having a crystal ball when a client asks a question that requires speculation. Now I can simply peer into my crystal ball!

  14. I want that vase!

  15. The Goldsby Vase sooooo gorgeous!!! My fav item! I can’t wait to have mine!

    • It’s $30 on Overstock if you want one.

      • 34 but there’s promo codes
