Comments (86)

  1. I received my box and I used the cookie sheet co ear to make sliced home fried potatoes for dinner. Clean up was easy. The marble coasters look high quality and they are thick. My husband thought they were nice too. They might be my favorite thing in box. Toner I tested on the inside of my elbow for reactions so I will see what happens
    The tea pot is going g to be used for watering plants. Love the planner!
    I will use everything and it was a winner for me

  2. My box is on its way. The calendar should be here by next week

  3. I was trying to sign up for an annual but the code FREEBOX does not show up in the summary. Has anyone else had this issue?

    • Is the total amount around $149.85 before tax? When I sign up the code was automatically applied.
      If the total amount is around $150 then the code was applied already. The regular annual price is around $199.80.

    • That code expired several days ago.

  4. Yeah… I am not disappointed that I passed on this box seeing this spoiler. Nothing excites me here, and the box wouldn’t even arrive until after Christmas, so I can’t really re-gift the items.

    The fall and winter boxes were just a serious miss. I was actually disappointed that I couldn’t have the fall welcome box instead of the normal box – because to me the fall welcome box was better than the actual box.

    They did allow me to skip both of them, which extends my annual until next winter… so hopefully next season will be better.

  5. I got my box this morning 12/7!! As a quarterly subscriber I thought you got one or other of some items. My box had the planner, the kettle AND the sweater, socks, foot masks, coasters that are lovely and earrings.
    Think it’s well worth it. :))

    • Wow. I think that was a lucky mistake.
      Anyone else get both from the categories? I would totally sign up then!

      • I’m so jealous too! You actually got 2 items from the best 3 categories! Kettle/sweater, coasters/earrings & planner/foot masks plus the socks. That definitely makes it a better box! Mine hasn’t even shipped yet. On my account page it still says it’s expected to ship late December/January. I’m an annual subscriber so maybe they are sending out the quarterly subscriber’s boxes first? I hope they send annuals their boxes to arrive before Christmas too.

    • so you got kettle AND the sweater from 1 category and coasters and earrings from 1 category! they made lots of mistake! So jealous that you received so early~~!

      • So… can you tell us the last spoiler? Lol Or is this it?

    • Jacy, how is the sweater? Can you give us a review? I’ve been on the fence between that and the kettle. I’m a little leery of their clothing items after the fall bathrobe they sent which was so bad I’m donating it to charity. On the other hand, I don’t use a kettle & mine might not get here before Christmas in time to gift it, but it is a very pretty kettle! Let us know what you think!

      • What was the last item?

  6. I am less than thrilled with this box and this will be my last one. I have cancelled my renewal, between this one and the Fall box. The robe I was excited for is too small and is not even soft. Guess I should have choose the towels, but anyways. This box lacks any kind of pizazz, not one thing that I am excited about, maybe they will announce a product everyone is getting that is better, like the swell bottles, but as of right now I am glad this will be my last box.

    • The towels are pretty bad too.

      • The towels are awful. They shrunk so bad, they’re not absorbent. Causebox had some bs tips about stretching them out by rolling them up with another towel. They might have mentioned ironing. Hilarious.

    • You haven’t missed anything, the towels were awful. Between the pretty lackluster items in the last two boxes, the unforgivably bad towels, and the laughably long shipping times, I see no reason to continue this subscription. I’m waiting for my Winter box to ship so I can cancel with some assurance that this last box is actually being sent to me.

      • Agree. I cancelled my subscription the same day the box arrived. The shipping takes for ever. The products were best in the last two boxes and the quality of some of the things was subpar too. When the box design is the best you can think there’s a problem.

    • Wendy, I did not get the robe, wished I had, but you did not miss a thing on the towels.
      Once you wash them they shrink up, there are DETAILED instructions on how to wash them.
      Who has time to re-shape towels! I have only used the hand towel, and that one has shrunk and I’ll leave it like that! However, I am looking forward to my Winter box, which I have not received yet.

  7. This box has turned out to be a pretty good curation but you still can’t customize if you’re seasonal and it arrives after Christmas, the new year and possibly valentines day? What a big flop. They have to practically give it away to sell it.

    • So true! I always sign up for intro boxes or dirt cheap seasonals because of it!

  8. I’d love to try that body scrub, but I just wish it was at least twice the size or bigger. It just seems too small for a body scrub, I’d probably use up the full tub in a few showers. At least the coasters and earrings have unlimited uses.

  9. I love planners! I am looking forward to everything in this box.

  10. I must say I’m ridiculously excited for this box. It’s awesome! That is the same brand planner they did a couple years ago and it is the best! Great choices!

  11. Has anyone baked on A silicone mat? How does it compare to parchment? Their comparison is funny – replace 18 rolls in a year! I use baking sheets almost every day and maybe use 2 rolls of parchment.

    When will this box ship? Many comments say after 1/1? Thanks!

    • I love my silicon mats, I can’t remember last time I reached for parchment.

    • I have two from a different brand and really like them. No stick, super easily cleanup – even if something accidentally burns, and dishwasher safe. I have not reached for parchment since getting them.

      • I didn’t get either the bags or the baking sheets but I still love my box.

    • In Instagram, I saw that they replies to the shipping questions, they said they will begin shipping in late December. So I guess it means you cannot receive your box until January

    • I do a lot of grain free baking, which really need parchment paper or silicone mats. It I tried to do my baking on a bare cookie sheet it would just glue itself to the metal, or crumble into dust as I tried to remove it.
      Silicone can’t replace parchment for literally every purpose, sometimes you want a bit of that stick that paper has over silicone (macarons, for example, come out better baked on parchment than silicone mats!) but for nearly every parchment purpose, including rolling sticky dough out between sheets of it, you can use a silicone mat like this.

  12. I decided to get annual this time with the black Friday deal for the free box. It seems some people haven’t liked this box’s selections but I personally find them much better than what was in the Fall box, which I skipped. It is nice to able toj customize with annual but as other people have commented, seasonals should be able to have at least one or two customizations! Else the box is too random.

    Since I’m not sure I’ll like the cardigan but the kettle is super cute, I’m getting the kettle. Even if I don’t use it much, I can always use it to water plants or keep it more as a decorative piece so it gets some use out of it one way or another.

    I was actually thinking about getting reusable baggies and a silk pillowcase, so those options work out nicely for me,as do the coasters. Working at home now, I’ve been avoiding any sort of water stains, etc on my desk with some paper since I can’t find the coasters I used to have.

    With this latest option, since I don’t use a physical planner at all, I’m going with the foot masks. My feet get really dry in the winter as well so it might be a nice thing to treat myself and other family members with, since there are multiple.

    Apparently, the last item will be the Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy face toner, which I keep hearing good things about so excited to try that!

    • I made the exact same choices! Good to know about the toner. Excited for my box 🙂

  13. I already have a personal planner for next year, but can definitely use this one for work. The layout looks great.

  14. I have subscribed to Causebox for two years, but cancelled before my renewal last month. Glad I did. There is literally nothing in this box I want. Happy to save the money. This has been a favorite box usually, but this one really misses the mark for me.

  15. Heard the item everyone gets is the Skin and Co truffle toner. If so, it’s a great toner and sells for $30.

    • One of my favorite skincare lines!

    • Finally a name brand beauty product!

    • The last spoiler is an artisan product according to their website which makes me doubt its a toner.

      • Nope, I was correct. It’s the toner.

  16. I’m really happy with this box. Is it the most exciting box ever? Not really, but it is full of incredibly useful items for me.

  17. I would love the agenda but already have one so will likely go with the foot masks for my super dry feet.

  18. I was drooling over the kettle, signed up for the $30 box, then upgraded to annual so I can customize. I think the deal for annual at ~40/box is a great deal! I am a FFF annual member and just canceled so spring will be my last box there. It will be nice to have a change here. I have only gotten one box in the past but loved and use every thing in it. Yay!

  19. Why would they offer a 2021 planner that won’t arrive in time for 2021 to begin? I have been using the same paper planner for several years and won’t change for one I can’t have in time for the new year.

    Really debating what to do with this box. The sweater seems too washed out and bathrobe-y to look professional on zoom and I have a ton of sweaters like that for lounge wear.

    The kettle is beautiful but I have a red one and this one will probably look weird in my stainless steel kitchen.

    I don’t bake and don’t pack a lunch anywhere so I’m not sure I’d use the bags.

    1 pillow case seems like it would look weird (though at least that one I’d use.) Sigh.

    If it were arriving for Christmas this would make good gifts maybe but for stuff I’ll get in January, seems like a bunch of stuff to have to deal with on Poshmark. How can the same people who brought me my favorite candle, Swell bottle, purse, etc. possibly be the same people curating this box now?

    • Sorry to be so whiny. I just have found subscription boxes such a joy in the last year of difficulties and stress and am frustrated that the one I love most seems so . . . off . . . to me this time.

      • Bummer these don’t fit your wishes or style. Do they let you skip a box like FFF does? I thought the same thing about the kettle with my stainless steel appliances, but IDC! I love it. I cook/bake all the time, use diff pillow cases than my partner (gonna just use it everyday since travel is far out of reach now), love/need a new planner, and always like hoop earrings. I hope the next box is better for you!

      • Yes, Brenda, they do allow annuals to skip, but that choice has to be made before billing day (this time by November 30th).

      • I agree with you Amy, this one does seem a bit off. Nothing I’m super excited about. Usable items that are worth the cost of the box but I was so used to being excited about Causebox and this box not so much.

  20. I thought this box looked really good and I love what it stands for but I am seriously bumming hard and kicking myself for not realizing you couldn’t chose anything unless you were annual. Really wanted the sweater. Hoping I get become an annual the next box.I will have my fingers firmly crossed I get it. Does anyone know when you see what they choose for you?

    • Not sure when/if you can see what they picked but you can always trade here or buy on Poshmark, etc if you don’t get the sweater. (Just give it a few days once they get to people’s homes and the prices come down.). You can also sometimes get them in the next box’s add-on market.

      • Thanks! I totally didn’t think of that way too busy experiencing I will be on the lookout for one.

  21. I initially was going to go with the planner but I am a planner addict and I have plenty. Plus I’m kind of picky.
    Kettle, coasters, baggies, socks and foot masks.
    I wish I knew if the hoops were ok for sensitive ears/ what the metals are. I kind of want the earrings. When is the last day to be able to change our choices??

    • I saw Sanctuary Project respond to a comment on Facebook that the posts are stainless steel! Based on other Sanctuary Project earrings for sale, I would guess that the rest of the earring is gold plated over brass.

      • That would be nice. I think I will change it to the earrings because marble coasters are at TJ Maxx for $5 for a set and I already have some. I don’t have hoops.

  22. These are both meh to me but I’ll get the foot masks because I use a digital calendar – a paper one would just be dropped in a drawer and forgotten.

  23. this are both meh to me but I’ll get the foot masks because I use a digital calendar and I would just drop a paper one in a drawer to be forgotten.

  24. I would have loved the planner but bought one last week since I need it before January. Wish they would’ve spoiled the box sooner (say November) to help ppl decide whether to sub and what to hold off on purchasing. I do like the items but they need to be more organized with releasing spoilers early.

    • It is so frustrating they wouldn’t spoil the planner earlier in November, most people start looking for the next year then!

  25. I’m going with the foot masks. I did not use my 2020 planner last year. I have never tried foot masks like these and my feet are dry in the winter.

  26. A question for all you knowledgeable ladies: I am just a seasonal subscriber. I don’t get to customize anything in this box. Is that correct? In the event that I would get the sweater, is it a one size fits all? Thank you for your help and comments!

    • I’m not sure but try logging into your account to see if “customize my box” is an option.

    • As a seasonal subscriber, you cannot customize. Regarding the sweater, they have a plus sized option that I think is size 20- 26. If you want this, you have to email them and they’ll send you the plus sized if you get the sweater.

    • Regarding the sweater sizing, I think I saw someone else mention that you can email them and request a plus size if that’s what you need. Not sure if that’s true or not, and I don’t know how that would fit into a seasonal subscriber’s box since they’re not choosing one item or the other. But if you wanted to email them, they would probably be able to answer.

      • I emailed them about the plus sized sweater. I’m really tall and can’t see a sweater that fits someone that’s 5’4” fitting me. I can confirm they do have them available. Per my email response from Causebox, the dimensions are as follows: Length from high point shoulder: 32”, Across shoulder: 27”, Sleeve length: 16 ¾”, Sleeve opening: 4 ¾”, Bicep 1” from armhole: 8”. I hope this helps!

      • is this the dimensions on the regular one or the plus sized one?

  27. That planner is beautiful. The Idlewild planners are so nice! I already have another that I use for home…but I can’t wait to use this for daily gratitude journaling! Perfect for jotting down a couple of things I am grateful for each day! Or a prayer list? So many uses beyond the traditional!

    • Agree!

    • I’m going to use my planner to document the teas I drink each day!

  28. I am so tempted to jump on this one but don’t think I can do the annual at this time. And, from reading reviews here, I know I would hate not being able to customize any of the options as a seasonal member.

    But I love reading what everyone’s choices will be! One of these days, I may jump on this one 🙂

    • Try Fabfitfun, you get to customize on a seasonal box.

  29. That planner is so beautiful it almost makes me want to go back to a paper planner. Would love if it was a blank notebook instead or was arriving in December but I think I’ll have to go with the foot masks.

  30. I bought my first ever planner this year.
    There is a possibility that it was that very action that set the stage for 2020.
    Definitely not feeling good about buying another planner. Ever.
    Looks like foot crap for me.

    • Funny!

  31. I already have a 2021 planner picked out, so foot masks for me!

  32. Wish it was a blank notebook as I use those regularly and I think the cover print is attractive. I’m not great with the paper calendar pages and my phone serves my daily meeting schedule more effectively for how I work. Long-winded way of saying, I’ll now be trying some foot masks.

  33. I like both options. I don’t really use planners but *should* – the one week I actually used a 90x planner for I was crazy productive. But I really like the foot masks, too, and with 5 that is plenty to share.

  34. That planner is really speaking to me. I am a bit bummed that it likely won’t arrive in time to use in January.

  35. Love those foot masks! Definitely choosing those! My 2020 planner has gotten no use this year, and I expect next year may be similar.

  36. Definitely foot masks!

  37. Man, a planner is SO not for me that I would choose literally any other option. This one looks cute and I know other people enjoy planners, but it would truly be wasted on me. I’m excited to make my husband do foot masks with me.

  38. I’m so annoyed that they’d include a 2021 planner that might not arrive until after January 1st. They should have put this in their fall box the way their shipping schedule is.

    • All that to say I’ll go with foot masks.

      • I had the same thought. At first I was excited as I just started looking at 2021 planners yesterday. But I want it now!

        Figured I’d get it anyway….but then saw foot masks. I really like, use and need those!

    • I do like the 2021 agenda, but I was thinking the same: we could get the planner in February, taking into account causebox’s shipping times… so yeah, not really ideal…

      • February?! Is that seriously how long it will take to come in?

      • @Tracy not necessarily, causebox said they’ll start shipping at the end of December (if I’m not mistaken) and they were pretty honest on Instagram when they answered a subscriber and told her to not expect the planner for January 1st. personally, I am never in the first or second “wave” of shipping, so I don’t have many hopes in getting the box in the first half of January, but for sure somebody else will. Causebox has several positive aspects but fast shipping is not one of them (in my experience).

  39. I need the planner. I prefer it over phone notes.
