These are the five cards we received this month. I look forward to Flair & Paper’s cards every month. All Flair & Paper cards are individually wrapped and are blank on the inside for the perfect picture or message.

I visit the Flair & Paper store often and love their Christmas cards and this one is no different. It’s flirty, sassy and sweet. It is paired with a brown a-style envelope.

Thanks For Always Putting Up With My Meltdowns Greeting Card – Estimated Value $4.00 (Based on the cards in the Flair & Paper store)

I received a card very similar to this in my July Flair & Paper box. that was my favorite at the time. I think any other month this one would have been a favorite too, but I was really hoping for more sassy Christmas cards. This one was paired with a red a-style envelope.

Cheers Greeting Card – Retail Value $4.00

This card is perfect for New Years and I have the perfect couple to gift it to. It is a horizontal card with Cheers in cursive, golden foil. It is paired with a brown a-style envelope.

LOVE! This card was my absolute favorite in this month’s subscription! The only bummer was that it wasn’t in the online store. I love the ugly sweater with a cheesy Rudolph. This card is paired with a red a-style envelope.

Joy Greeting Card – Estimated Value $4.00 (Based on the cards in the Flair & Paper store)

I adore square-shaped cards and that is my favorite part about this card. I didn’t send it out this season but am saving it for next season. This card features the word Joy in an ornament and is paired with a green, squared envelope.

I really liked this wine bag. It serves as great wrapping and saves me so much time and trouble. I will be gifting it to our friends (along with the Cheers greeting card) for New Years, except I plan on including tequila instead of wine. 😊

I also love that it has a gift tag – really saves a ton of time with wrapping!

This washi tape is very much in the holiday season with its bright red tape and stark white font. It will definitely be used!

I really liked this item and wish that more than one was included. It is a pretty thick coaster with a whole bunch of celebratory words. This is a great drink accessory for guests while toasting in 2019.

Red Bow Planner Clip

Flair & Paper sends planner clips occasionally and they are a welcomed inclusion. This one is simple yet classy. It’s a golden paper clip with a red bow. The colors are perfect for the holidays, but it isn’t limited to the holidays, and for that, I love it and plan on using it all year ‘round.

These are adorable and sassy and I loved them! My favorite is the first one: Spoiler Alert (It’s Not a Pony).

Flair & Paper Box December 2018 - Monthly Calendar Card

Lastly, our monthly calendar card included in all our boxes.

Verdict: I was a lot happier with this month’s Flair & Paper box than I was with last months. I do wish I received more snarky, sassy cards though. The subscription seems to tame them down a bit; at least they are available for purchase in the store. I also wish we got a pair of coasters vs one or that they were available in the store. Either way, I enjoyed this month’s box!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but if you sign up now you will receive the January box.

Coupon – Use code WELCOME to save 50% off your first box of a 3, 6, and 12-month subscription!

Value Breakdown: The items I did find in the store (greeting cards and wine bag) totaled $30.00, which is more than the cost of the subscription. This box costs $19.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 10 items in the box (not including the December calendar page) has an average cost of $1.99, which is an ah-mazing deal!

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.

  1. Here’s one thing I don’t underatand about this box. Why send out a dated December holiday themed box in december box? Wouldn’t it make more sense to send it out prior to December so people can use if during the month of December instead of late in the month when it’s too late to do so?

  2. I really like this box. I wonder if next month will get a bunch of Valentine’s stuff

    • I do too! It’s one of my favorites especially for the cost!

  3. I have yet to see the “promised retail value of $40.” Although I really like the items in the box, as a consumer I do not like to be lied to, or for a company to assume I will just love the items so much that I will forget about the promise that was made to me. Like do they think that their customers don’t know how to look up an item’s value? I just wont buy from a company that I cannot trust or that insults my intelligence. Its really a shame because I like this box. They would do better just leaving the promised retail value off. If they are not going to keep their promise then they should not make it.
