Quirky Crate November 2020 Review

Quirky Crate samples one item from a featured artist or brand each month. This month features the digital illustrator, Emily McGaughey; she sells her accessories, like magnets and stickers, on her Etsy shop. This info card gives you some insight into Emily and her background as well as some social media info.

On the flip side of the card, Quirky Crate includes an itemized list of each product and its value. This month's theme is "Sweater Weather". 

Time to get quirky!

 

Coffee Socks - Retail Value $9

Quirky Crate‘s socks never disappoint! The fun designs are some of my favorites to reach for, and the quality is always first-rate. This pair seems a little longer than usual, but that is nothing a cycle through the wash can't fix. Coffee beans and a few different cup options run with the cozy "Sweater Weather" theme perfectly.

Fuzzy Headband - Retail Value $15

I love this headband; although it is a loud accessory, I think it is super cute as a pop of color when you're looking to add a little pizzazz to an otherwise plain outfit. It doesn't pinch behind my ears and covers enough of my hair that I can get away with going another day without shampooing (no shame!). Growing out my bangs has been a real pain, and accessories that hide that awkward stage are welcomed.

It is a fun, bold accessory for sure, but I like it!

 

"Netflix and Chill" Purse - Listed Value $35.00

I love it when Quirky Crate busts out the holo! This cute little tv set resonates so much with me since binging shows has become our most treasured form of entertainment this year. What would we all do without our streaming services?! The tv is gold holographic and the knobs and screen have baby pink and black accents. The purse comes with the usual gold chain, but I typically prefer to use purses like these as a clutch. A bit smaller than the most recent QC releases, this purse will only fit my phone and maybe my (small) wallet, but it is a cute accessory that I will totally be rocking in the near future.

 

Neon Pencils - Listed Value $5

Ooo here are four colors you don't typically see in your average pencil set! I love to doodle in my planner, which I also use as a journal, and this is just the pop of color it needed! They aren't bold colors and aren't meant to stand alone, but they add a vivid splash of color where you may need it.

 

Emily McGaughey Waterproof Magnet - Retail Value $4

This cute little kitty was designed by this month's featured artist, Emily McGaughey. Her weather-proof vinyl magnets are tough enough to stand up to the elements if you'd like to bless your car with a kitty in an acorn hat, but I find that I like his presence right on my refrigerator.

 

Sweater Weather Enamel Pin - Listed Value $10.00

I know I say this every month but best pin EVER! Just when you think it can't get any cuter, QC pulls this gem out of the works. The gold metallic detailing sets off the rainbow hearts, making me wish I had this knit IRL. I like the size of this sturdy pin, and it has a good weight to it. I am always ready to jump headfirst into sweater season, my favorite season, so I am excited to add this little cutie into my pin collection.

 

Unicorn Pen - Listed Value $5.00

This pen is equal parts cute and scary, but I like it! It is actually very comfortable to hold, despite its shape, and it writes like your average ballpoint pen. He isn't the most attractive unicorn, but it is what is on the inside that counts, right? His little smile is growing on me, though!

Here I tested out the colored pencils and the unicorn pen.

 

Unicorn Tea Infuser - Listed Value $10.00

I have many, many tea infusers, some good, some bad. This one is a bad one. Yes, he's cute, but can he perform? His body comes apart so easily, I had to be very careful lowering him into my mug, and that pressure is something I just don't have time for. I feel he is made more for display anyway, and I am more than happy to sit him in an unused mug and visit him from time to time; however, I won't be putting this pony to work any time soon.

The Verdict: November's Quirky Crate was really fun to unbox. I really loved this month's theme, and I was happy about all of the different types of products sent out for November. This box is an awesome source for some very unique gifts, but I think I will be keeping the majority of this month's content. The total value of this box adds up to $93, over double the $36.95 + $8.50 shipping subscription cost. Out of all of my many subscriptions, I have the most fun unboxing QC, making it worth every penny each month.

A fun night for me includes an exfoliating foot mask and a bag of Dot's Pretzels while binging Rupaul’s Drag Race.

Great review! This box always catches my eye. Thank you for scribbling with the neon pencils I was wondering how they would actually look.

That headband! 😂 I’m not sure what unicorns (2 of them?!) have to do with sweater weather, but I can appreciate the pin (always love the pins in this sub,) purse (would never use, but definitely would be gifted,) and the socks (because why not?)

I like your writing style, Abby! 👍☺️
