MyIrelandBox August 2018 Review

My Ireland Box letters

This box comes with a lot of literature. Rather than a traditional short info sheet, this box contains a full letter from the creators of MyIrelandBox with a lot of information and insight on why each particular item was chosen. This month’s theme is Old Irish Homestead!

Saturday Workshop Cow - Retail Value $28.53 (€25.00)

This is a handmade wooden toy made with local (to the makers!) Irish beech! Saturday Workshop is run by a father-daughter team who combined have a background in architecture, engineering, and boat building, and their skilled craftsmanship definitely shows in this piece. This also comes in a lovely box perfect for gifting, and I think this would be a lovely addition to a babies nursery, especially one themed with farm animals!

Rebecca Killen Ceramics Ceramic Milk Bottle - Retail Value $36.81

This fine bone china handmade ceramic milk bottle truly is a piece of art! Subscribers could have received the millennial pink, white, and blue, and I am so happy to have received the millennial pink version! The gold accents at the mouth of the bottle are so beautiful, and while this is safe for liquids I am going to use it as a small flower vase (and I mean small—I don’t have a ruler, but I would estimate this to be about six inches tall).

Kelly Cards Ireland in Say Cheese - Retail Value Unavailable

This is a big greeting card, and in America is does cost extra postage to mail due to the square shape. The folded card features a woman with some milk jugs on a cart pulled by a donkey at an Irish Creamery, and I think this card really does a lovely job of tying in the cow toy and the ceramic milk bottle into the overall Old Irish Homestead theme! The card is blank, and I actually already have the perfect recipient in mind!

Verdict: The August box from MyIrelandBox is much more my style! I am seriously in love with my new millennial pink and gold milk bottle (made of a ~fancy~ fine bone china), and while the cow toy isn’t a good fit for me personally I will be holding onto it for the next baby shower I am invited to—and I can definitely appreciate the fine quality and craftsmanship. The card did a great job of tying it all together, and I do feel like I have experienced the Old Irish Homestead. I couldn’t find a value of the card, but the toy and the milk bottle are valued at $65.34, which is $10 more than the cost of the box! This isn’t a box for people who want a screaming deal, but I do think it is a lovely subscription for those who have an Irish heritage or those who visited the country and fell in love with it.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? If you sign up today you will get the September box, which is “The Beauty of Ireland” themed (think homemade Irish accessories and beauty products!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $45 + $10.50 shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $16.83. That is a bit high for the card, but that is well below the value of the other two items!

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

I love everything Ireland and just found out about this box! I’ve even started taking irish lessons. It’s very exciting to discover different irish products recommended by irish people. I’m debating whether to subscribe or not since I’m already gettinng five other boxes.
😢 Wish I was rich!!!

I wish there was a way to see the size of the items. Maybe a coin in the picture or something of a common size for comparison

Nice simple stuff but just can’t see how any of it is worth that much. Yes its made in Ireland but they could have selected better more unique items. Just looks so generic.
