Flair & Paper October 2018 - Calendar Current Month Front

Calendar

The last item in the box comes with all of my beloved Flair & Paper boxes: a calendar for the current month. I love these!

Verdict: I adore Flair & Paper!  The only time I have been let down was not receiving their September box . But this October fall box makes up for it! It is beautifully crafted with such a great color scheme. As soon as I opened my box, I said “preeeety.” I also enjoyed that it wasn’t just Halloween-themed, but that they included some Halloween-ish items, too.

Value Breakdown: I received 9 items in this month’s box (not including the October calendar page and gift tags). The items I did find in the store (cards and similar notepads) totaled $49.00, well over the subscription box total. The other items are not found in the store, but for $19.99, you will absolutely not be disappointed!

I am a mother of 2 going on 3 soon and enjoy the little things in life, especially in surprise form! Monthly subscription boxes give me that surprise every time I see the mailman delivering them! My favorite boxes include beauty boxes, lifestyle boxes and anything pregnancy-related boxes; my all time favorite is my FabFitFun subscription.
