Happy Rebel Spring 2019 Review
Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included.
And with each box, Happy Rebel Box donates a portion of the proceeds to charity. For this box, they selected The Homeless Prenatal Program.
Now, on to the items!
D1 Milano Marble Face Watch - Retail Value $158.00
(Subscribers could pick between black and white)
While this watch isn't normally my style (I have an Apple Watch that I am quite partial to) I was surprised at how much I ended up liking it. While it looks bold and sturdy, it is surprisingly lightweight and the artist in me can't help but appreciate the marble face, each watch different and unique. It features a soft touch finish that feels great against my skin. It was way too big when I opened it, but thankfully it came with a very helpful link removal tool which was very simple to use, as long as you pay attention to the little arrows on the inside of the watchband which tells you what direction to remove the links from. The presentation was beautiful, and the watch itself came with a warranty card, though I have no idea how you would estimate the 1-year warranty since the date on the card was blank.
Purpose Planner Acrylic Weekly Calendar - Retail Value $64.00
(Subscribers could pick between horizontal and verticle orientation.)
So I have to say that this calendar truly should have come with a dry erase marker. I don't just have those hanging out in my home so I will have to make a little trip to buy some. This thing is pretty big, measuring 23.5 inches tall and 8 inches wide. It is actually a really beautiful addition to my home office and I plan on jotting down little notes to myself on it so I don't miss anything super important deadline-wise. I like how minimal and clean the clear acrylic is, and the brass corner bolts are very unique and pretty.
Issac Jacobs Stackable Acrylic Tray - Retail Value $24.00
(Subscribers could choose between silver, gold, or rose gold metallic accents.)
I am assuming this tray is meant for office supplies or makeup but if you are a weirdo like me, you will probably fill it with crystals and stones then proudly display them on your desk. This tray is really well made and heavier than it looks The low profile should fit easily into many drawers and give you a stylish way to display your rocks or lipsticks!
Happy Rebel Washable Paper Bags - Retail Value $56.00
These were easily the most interesting thing in this month's box for me, and I know you guys will have sizing questions so I took a photo holding them for reference below. I wish these bags looked closer to the images shown on the product website, but I think mine just need to be beaten up a little more. Since they are washable, I plan on maybe wetting and scrunching them to loosen them up and achieve that slouchy look. Bags like this are actually pretty useful in my house because I like to stash my plants in them as a very stylish pot. I actually have something similar made of cork that I have a Fiddleleaf Fig resting in. The large one is actually almost big enough to be a desk trashcan!
Here I am holding the small and large bags.
Just a quick shot of the smallest bag holding one of my desk plants. Don't plant them directly into these bags, but rather set their pots down inside. I would also recommend taking them out of the bags when watering or wet.
Verdict: This box has a retail listed value of about $302.00, which is great for a $100 box. I will say that these are items I don't think I would have bought individually, but I do love them! The watch is a great edgy choice for those days when my Apple Watch is dead (happens a lot because I am bad at charging!) and the marble face is very pretty. The wall calendar is so clean and modern and makes a great addition to my home office that makes me feel much more put together than I actually am. My new crystal tray is just gorgeous! I also weirdly love the metallic bag trio because they are kind of like a modern upgrade to the baskets I keep around my house and they have so many uses. I am overall pretty happy with this box!
