I looked at the photo with the pink throw again and there is a grey blanket on the bed. Since the slippers are grey perhaps that is the next (hopefully) spoiler. I can see more people liking a grey blanket/throw versus pink but would like either.

I wish PS would release one more spoiler. They always hold back yet the boxes tend to sell out.

I went ahead and bought one.

pb

there is also a stack of books on floor storage n right side, pretty sure top book is a garance dore book which is also a blush colored book – more books there too!

amyrr

That is awesome! I did not notice it. It is funny how they give out spoilers without giving the explicitly.

pb

pretty sure will be a blanket/throw, they always do this! enjoy your box, can not wait to see all the goodies!

Carrie

Sadly this box is still a no for me because I’m hoarding my pennies, but I love the spoilers! Those slippers, while a cat magnet, would be great for me and the jewelry is gorgeous, IMO. Oddly, the cuff is majorly appealing and I don’t ever wear bangle style bracelets. I think it’s the color and dainty bling that’s so attractive. Am curious to see more spoilers.

Nicole

I just want to point out that sizing is listed differently on POPSUGAR’s selection page compared to Skin Worldwide for slippers. If you are like me and in a size 9, you may want to rethink the size you select. I emailed them about this and they didn’t acknowledge the discrepancy in size but said I would need to cancel and submit a new order to get the different size. I want to keep them for myself, so had to cancel my order with a size medium and place a new order with the size large. Better to have them too big than too small to fit on my feet.

POPSUGAR selection page says: Small 5-6, Medium 7-9, and Large 10-12
Skin Worldwide says: Small 5-6, Medium 7-8, and Large 9-10

Laura

I just received an email for the box and agree that a pink blanket looks likely, does anyone else think those pink silky pajamas might be included? Are they on NM’s website? They are really cute!

amyr

I doubt the pajamas would be included. There are so many short or tall people. I am 5′ so long legged pajamas would totally drag the floor.

Plus I would think that PS would have added pajamas to the customizations,

They are super cute though.

I am hoping for a pink throw. If there were to be a pink throw or blanket I would actually buy the box.

Mary

I originally was thinking the pajamas too, but it seems like they would have asked for a size for those when customizing.

C

Liz, can we expect to see another spoiler for this box in the near future?

Mary

I just received an email from PopSugar promoting the box and based on that, I’m predicting one of the other items will be a pink throw/blanket.

amyr

I saw that. That pin throw or blanket is beautiful and pink is one of my favorite colors.

The pink theme is pretty.

I see pink pillows too.

Now I am about to bite – one more spoiler will throw me over the edge I daresay!

Klk

Do I have to receive a text message to buy this I cannot figure out where to purchase the Neiman Marcus Box

Zo

You should be able to click on the link above in the article to get to an ordering page.

Tanya

These spoilers are not my taste but I hope everyone who buys it loves it!

Zo

and this is how you can voice your dislike without sounding negative!

Kelly

The price of the bangle, which I think is beautiful, across all websites is $145 – more than half the price of the box. A hand-sculpted lucite bangle is not a trinket or something you can buy at Marshalls but I get that not everything is for everyone. Looking forward to getting this box. Merry Christmas and Happy Dec 28 Birthday to me!

amyr

People do not understand lucite or the history of plastic. Bakelight is an old form of plastic and very expensive. I own several pieces of Bakelight from the 1940s. There are actual counterfeit Bakelight pieces. But Bakelight can be dangerous to wear.

While I do not like the spoilers I appreciate the value of lucite. People need to go to Moda Operandi prices. Fashion jewelry especially signed pieces for for a lot of money.

noelle

I’m jealous, I think it’s a stunning piece and I hope you really love it. PSMH can’t win with this box when it comes to jewelry. I thought the necklace last year was really cool (totally impractical for my life style), but cool. There were tones of complaints there too, and don’t even get me started on the previous year.

Brooke

The lingerie site Journelle (which is a reputable site and one of my favs) was selling the exact slipper for $34.40… they are now listed as out of stock but you could have gotten an additional 20% off that so they would have been less than $30. Just sharing for what it’s worth. I will not be purchasing this as the price tag is too high for a gamble for me. I hope everyone who purchases is happy with the rest of the box.

mtvb

I was expecting ludicrously inflated retail value items from PSMH + NM and, as always, they delivered!

I can see those slippers getting quite worn from laundering them often since they are light gray. I’m not sure how the tassel will hold up to washing either.

The bracelet is the only item remotely interesting to me but not enough to buy this box. No FOMO whatsoever.

Daria

I’m so disappointed. No FOMO here. Those slippers, ugh! There are so many cute and cozy slippers in this world, and they chose to go with that ugly pair? And lucite “jewelry”? What??

amyr

Lucite can be really expensive. Many high end designers use lucite in their designs. I do like the curve of the earrings and they are signed.

I think for all the moaning and groaning I did I was wrong. I apologize to anyone I offended.

I really looked at the earrings. I consign my designer bags, couture clothing and jewelry at TheRealReal. They have these exact earrings and every pair is sold out.

MissJ

It’s totally fine if none of these spoilers appeal to you, but please be kind in your critiques as you’re insulting those of us who DO like them.

Tracy

I don’t understand why you would be insulted if someone else didn’t like the same things you do.

It happens all the time here and I don’t look twice.

We all have different taste and needs…it’s not personal.

Bonita

We don’t care that they don’t like the items. It’s the delivery of their message with statements that the items are junk or cheap. They might not be their taste but they’re not junk either. You can’t please everyone.

Tanya

What a stranger thinks shouldn’t be hurtful. It’s just stuff. I have no ego wrapped up in stuff. Why does it matter what anyone else says?

Luka

Exactly, why get offended because someone doesn’t like a pair of slippers? People need to put things in perspective

MissJ

The way the items are bashed makes it so some may not even feel comfortable sharing that they actually like the items. People calling them junk and garbage. Once upon a time people wouldn’t say that to actual people. Downfall of the internet and not knowing who’s who, guess.

Denise

Thank you! Lots of snotty comments here.

AmyM

Very easy pass.

JulesSR

Nicely said, Thank you. I’m not thrilled with the spoilers and most of last years items have not been used, but I love subscription boxes and even more love mystery boxes… at this moment it’s a bit of a mystery box.. I was so pumped to purchase this box yesterday but after reading the comments I pumped the brakes and am on the fence still.
FOMO is real!! Sometimes I find myself SMH when reading rude comments.. I feel really bad for the MSA team. Just saying.

amyr

MSA want opinions good or bad. That is its purpose. Just saying.

Christina

These items are just embarrassing. The earrings and bracelet look so cheap, leftover from 1985 and the slippers are so ugly. Bleh! I think the person who said these are the things Neiman’s can’t sell is absolutely right.

Denise

I think the slippers are adorable. It’s all a matter of taste. I might think you have bad taste about something but I certainly wouldn’t express myself quite like you….

Tracy

I think the slippers are kind of awful. However, if you like them, enjoy!

The comment sections you’ll find anywhere on the internet will likely include people’s real feelings on whatever topic is up for discussion.

If you have a hard time with that, maybe skip it or try to scroll by. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Noelle

I was considering splurging on this box this year. I always enjoy looking at the big reveal and enjoying it vicariously. I actually really love the bracelet, alas I have giant hands and suspect it won’t fit on my wrist. I dont Carr for the earrings or slippers, so I think I’ll sit this out. 🙁

I am considering 2 PSMH winter boxes though for the matching rainbow necklace and earrings. I’m sure I’ll have plant of gifts from it too. I can see how they might look tacky to some, but I work with young children who like colorful, whimsical things.

Rose

I think the bracelet is hinged, if that makes a difference to you. My experience is that Alex Bittar jewelry is primarily constructed from plastic, and it is very fragile. I actually like the pink jewelry, but I wouldn’t buy it because it may be very easy to damage.

Sandy

I think I saw that the bracelet has a hinge opening, so hopefully it would fit you!

Noelle

I’m not optimistic. I’m a bit of an Amazon princess. Just shy of 6ft and not a beanpole at all. I’m just a little scaled up compared to the average woman. Generally if jewelry isn’t somewhat flexible in nature as far as fit goes, it won’t work. I’ll probably have to make some adaptations to the necklace to make it fit, which is easy enough most of the time, but I don’t think I’d be able to make the bracelet work if it’s not quite wide enough.

Seriously though, I’m just picturing the rainbow jewelry with a basic black 3/4 sleeve t-shirt, skinny jeans, and a pair of black boots so that the colors pop. I think it could look really awesome.

Natlovesmelody

Hello Noelle,
I like your idea of 2 Winter PSMH for a matching set. The daintiness and multiple colors of the design are attractive to me too.

Kelly

I’ve considered two of the winter boxes, instead, too. I like the earrings, those are what I chose, and I would love a matching necklace. Why do they keep making us choose? Wish we could add on the other for discount rather than purchasing a whole additional box. I will use the extras for gifts, though, so might order a second!

Noelle

I’m not thrilled with the dish thing, but I’m thinking of doing some neat things with some tea lights and some sort of filler. The extra one I’m going to fill with some nice pens, post-its, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and a christmas card for the woman who’s office I use twice a week, along with an apology for constantly using her post-its. I’m sure I’ve stolen a pen or two by accident as well.

Dawn

Easy pass for me… never wear earrings and I have SIX pairs of unworn slippers. Stuck in that cabin sock rut…

Emily Ilene

Mmmm this is an easy pass. None of these spoilers are an atheistic me or anyone in my circle would be into. For real, I’d be happier with some baublebar from Target. They’d probably have cuter slippers too. I don’t care about designer labels though… 🤷

Kathy Piccini

I had to chuckle when I saw your response because as soon as I saw the rainbow jewelry in the PSMH Winter box I instantly thought of all the Baublebar jewelry I have that looks just like those. I cancelled the PSMH Winter box. Dobt need more Baublebar twinsy jewelry nor another knicknack tray. N Neiman Marcus is an easy easy pass as well. I can buy Lucite jewelry anywhere. I just purchased no less than 6 new pr of house slippers n all are cuter than these. Just saved a ton of $$$ lol

Erin

I’ve been so worried that the box would sell out before it was open to non-subscribers b/c I’m taking a break from PSMH. A lot less worried now! I’ve gotten the NM box the last couple of years though and really liked it so I’m torn. NM has both the earrings and the bracelet at $145 and the slippers are $85 on the the Skin Worldwide site. So that accounts for $230.

What’s the value of this box supposed to be again?

Marcie McAuliffe

I agree! Thank God for spoilers! I just saved myself $275!

Katherine

Atheistic, huh? …I thought this box was NON-DENOMINATIONAL, danggit!

klowe

dead…:D

Emily Ilene

Lol curses!! Auto correct has struck again. Aesthetic is the word I was trying to use. 😂😝

Katie

😂

MizzMo

I am in the minority here and really like the earrings – so I went ahead and did the pre-order (I don’t have a subscription – but the link above allowed me to order). The bracelet – not my thing – so I am happy it’s a choice.

As for the slippers – these will be perfect for our houseguests that forgot theirs and want a pair to borrow while they are here. That style is usually pretty great for being thrown into the wash for the next guest to use.

I don’t get the impression these are ‘hero’ items. Plus, since the RV isn’t being eaten up by both the bracelet AND earrings – makes me wonder what the WOW item will be 🤔

Joy

I love your idea for the slippers! What a kind and thoughtful way to welcome people into your home. You must be a wonderful host 🤗

Tessie G

Wanted to love this box this year. These slippers are awful and the jewelry is not a wow factor. Usually the first spoilers are the better items in the box. Looks like I just saved myself $275.

Jessica T

Don’t most people wear slippers because their feet are cold…

Mellissa

I think both spoilers look like overall solid options. I’m not a jewelry girl and I think the earrings would be too long for my mom (she’s the only one to whom I gift jewelry). The pale blush looks gorgeous though!

I’m a Birkenstock girl and just have a pair of indoor Birk clogs vs. slippers. My poor feet need support on my floors.

The suggestion to keep them for house guests is fun but my house guests wear very different sizes (mom is a 7, sister is a 10 and my best friends are a 11 and 12). Plus would I wear used slippers as a guest in someone’s house? Nope.

The slippers only go to a size 10. This seems iffy but perhaps I’ve just known a lot of bigger footed people? 🤷‍♀️😂

I really thought I’d be buying this for holiday gifts this year but will have to skip it. If you love these two spoilers, you’d probably like the rest of the box as I’m assuming there will be a face cream/serum and the home goods based on prior years. I’m thankful they spoiled these 2 items vs. a home goods item.

Nikki

I really don’t see why everyone is talking down on these spoilers so much. I wasn’t able to get the box last year and I’m happy I was able to get the preorder this year. In fact the main reason I ordered was the slippers because I intend to gift them to my mom who isn’t into jewelry, handbags, makeup or skincare and doesn’t own anything designer so I thought her eyes will light up with some slippers she will actually use and feel a bit luxurious about. I chose the earrings as they would go cute for a holiday outfit and I truly don’t own any nice jewelry, so it’s a treat for me. I know there will be items in the box that don’t fit me personally, but I ordered because I know I can use what I don’t want as gifts for Christmas and make my shopping list way shorter while also giving myself a couple nice things. Even if the box was only a $450 value, I would likely still find the $275 worth it as it still gives you discounts on several items, but this one will be upwards of $700, which isn’t bad at all. If you ask me, it’s a nice start to the box and I am looking forward to seeing what else I can either keep or gift.

Natlovesmelody

Hi Nikki,
I appreciate your attitude! Thank you for your positive silver lining in the world of subscription boxes. LOL, many times the items that I thought I would not like turned into being one of my favorite things.

Emilia

I had a whole exchange with a lady who was appalled by the idea of using “sub box rejects” as gifts. I see nothing wrong with that.

Tanya

I would never gift my sub box leftovers either but honestly it’s nobody else’s business.

Stec

Oh I remember reading that exchange. I tried to comment in your favor because that person was absolutely redic , but as usual my comments didnt post. Nothing wrong at all with giving sub box items as gifts..it still boggles my mind.

reeb

Depends on the “rejects,” lol. I’d never gift anyone one of my 12 Eyeko black eyeliners, but there are plenty of items in boxes that make great gifts.

LM

Thanks to these lackluster spoilers I went and looked at the normal PS box spoilers and liked them better, used the MSA code, and am perfectly happy for $58. This box is so hit and miss–I got lucky and loved it the one time I got it, but there have been a lot of misses IMO. Hope everyone who gets it loves it!

amyr

I used an MSA code too which brought my box down to $60. Tennessee sales tax is draconian. It is 9.5%!

I honestly adore those earrings! I love rainbows, am a Pride supporter and they are small enough to add a statement necklace. I love the dish too 🙂

Molly

The jewelry that Popsugar has picked out for this & the winter boxes are really bad. And the slippers are shapeless & wide… I think of LUXURY when I think of this box, and the price.

Joyce

I am a regular subscriber. Where can I find the spoilers for the Winter Box?
Thanks in advance

Marcie Mc

Joyce, you should have recently received an email from Popsugar to make your choices for the jewelry. Log into your Popsugar account and you can make your choice.

Cara

Why aren’t they giving people both the earrings and bracelet? This box is too expensive to be pulling that pick one stunt. In the past this box had an earring and necklace set so it can be done.
