Cat Lady Box December 2018 Review
Cat Lady Box is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for December:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box. This is a holiday-themed box.
Glitter Cat Travel Tumbler – Listed Value $17.99
Lately, I have been buying hot tea at the gas station before going grocery shopping and they’ve been putting out Styrofoam cups and I’d really prefer to drink out of something more environmentally-friendly and this tumbler seems like just the thing. I’m sure they’ll let me fill it with tea and just pay the large coffee price or something and then I’m not throwing Styrofoam away anymore. So this comes at a good time for me.
Sam the Snowman Catnip Toy – Listed Value $5.99
This is a long toy, but not too heavy, so it can still be tossed around and/or wrestled with. It is a catnip plush and my cats were interested in rubbing their faces on it, so I guess the catnip is good?
Meowlidays Tree Catnip toy – Listed Value $4.99
Here is the second toy for the month. Although it also has catnip, the main draw for my crew was the end with the feathers. Feathers are hugely popular among my kitties.
Sweet Cat Card Holder – Listed Value $14.99
I have wanted something like this for a while. I have a lot of clutches (thanks, subscription boxes) and if I want to take one of those out with me, but still have some ID and a credit card, but I can’t fit a full-sized wallet in there, now I can just put a few cards in this and throw it in the clutch and I am good to go. (I don’t know what it is made of but there is no chemical smell or anything like that.)
Cat Lady Zip Jacket – Listed Value $32.99
I have two zip-up hoodies from Cat Lady Boxes in years past, and I wear them all the time – at home in my PJs in the living room, out grocery shopping, during morning yoga when my exercise room is too cold, etc. Now I can add this one to the mix. (If you’re wondering why you don’t see my bottom half in the last two pictures, it’s because I was wearing my November Unique Vintage dress under the jacket and it was an odd visual…) Despite the fact that there are sequins on the back, this says it can be machine washed. Also, I know I usually say the shirts from this box are a bit large (they don’t offer XS in sizing), but getting an S worked out perfectly for this jacket since it’s appropriately sized for me to wear over something (even something with longer sleeves).
Here’s the crew with the toys from the box. Angus was the most playful, but the others were usually up for sniffing or rubbing their faces on the toys. Mr. Kitty was sleepy and cranky but he has earned that; he’s been through a lot lately. (But he gained back 1.5 pounds, all the weight he lost prior to his diabetes diagnosis, so that’s great!)
Verdict: I calculated a value of $76.95 for the December 2018 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. That is quite a high value for the box and, even if you think one or two values are inflated, I feel like you’re still getting your money’s worth. The big-ticket items for this month were all useful to me for various reasons and my cats liked rubbing their faces on the toys (for my cats, most of whom are seniors, this is about as good as it gets when it comes to toys), so this was a good box for us.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with January’s box, but way back when I signed up, I was contacted to say there were a few of the current month’s box left over and asked if I’d like one of those. So it may be worth inquiring.
Value Breakdown: At a price of $39.99 for this box, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Tumbler $9.35
- Snowman toy $3.11
- Tree toy $2.59
- Card holder $7.79
- Jacket $17.14
