The Office Box Fall 2021 Subscription Review

The Office Box is a quarterly subscription box full of exclusive, officially licensed merch from the hit TV show. Inside, you'll find apparel, accessories, home goods, and more that you can’t get anywhere else for $39.99/quarter + shipping.

It's hard to understate the phenomenon that was The Office when it was still being produced. If it is an indication as to the lasting effect it had on the fandom, the show ended in 2013 and this subscription box didn't start until 2020. Fans – old and new – are still excited for The Office apparel and merchandise that this subscription provides in spades.

This box was sent to us at no cost to review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions


I review the DC Comics Worlds Finest Collection, which is also produced by CultureFly. I only mention it because I love how they create cool boxes. I don't believe that is very common in subscription boxes and should be touted.

This quarter's theme is "Midnight" and many of the items are about Michael's movie "Threat Level Midnight." Fun fact, you can watch the entire movie on The Office's official Youtube channel.

What's In The Box?


Every box comes with a little information card that goes along with the theme. It highlights what each of the products is as well which is always helpful.

Threat Level Midnight Pullover Hoodie


The hero item of this quarter's box is a Threat Level Midnight pullover hoodie. It's black with the TLM logo on the front, left breast. On the back, is a well-printed cover (?) of the film that features Michael Scarn holding a hockey stick in front of an explosion. Above him, his the movie's tagline, "Clean Up on Aisle 5." I like that it feels like a hoodie the crew would get for working on the film. My daughter liked it, although it looked more like a dress on her.

Threat Level Midnight Pint Glass


I've never met a pint glass I didn't like, which is a problem because I have a lot of them. The newest addition to my collection is one with the TLM logo. Like most pop culture items, I like the idea of drinking a pint and having someone recognize the logo and be impressed. Shallow? Maybe. Cool? Definitely. My tiniest complaint is that is hand-wash only. To be honest, I'm probably just going to throw it in the dishwasher.

Picture Frame


I'm not going to lie. I'm not sure what episode this comes from or what the story is behind it. Maybe you could help me in the comments. I do like that you can use the frame for your own photo. Although it is an odd size. Again, I like that you could have this sitting on your desk or mantle and someone does a double-take, "Is that from The Office?"

Recyclops Foldaway Reusable Shopping Tote


Recyclops is Dwight's alter-ego, which he uses to promote Earth Day. What starts as a well-meaning, pro-recycling character becomes more menacing and soon he thinks the best course of action is to destroy the world. Well, before going insane, Recyclops would have enjoyed this reusable shopping tote. It's rather large and features the aforementioned character.

Date Mike Driving Cap


Speaking of alter-egos, here is the black cap Michael wears when he turns into "Date Mike." It has his catchphrase, "Hi. I'm Date Mike. Nice to meet me." Although it leaves out the "How do you like your eggs in the morning?" Not sure why they are calling it a driving hat. Sometimes I call it a "pappy hat." Either way, if you can pull off this hat, bravo. I have a rather large head. So I'm not going to embarrass myself by trying it on. I think this would look adorable on my son.

Date Mike Stickers

Piggybacking on the cap, here are four "Date Mike" stickers. They have the same tagline and are made to look like name tags. I thought that was a clever idea, considering the quote.

Scarecrow Doll Replica


This is a replica doll of the scarecrow Michael gifts Oscar. The hilarity behind is that Michael knows it's a stupid, poorly-made gift, but Oscar accepts it with honor, because he thinks it's meaningful to Michael. "It looks like it was made by a two-year-old monkey," he says through crying laughter. Therefore, I think this would make a funny gift to a friend ... or foe.

Scrantonicity Epoxy Pin


Scrantonicity is the Police cover band with ya boy Kevin on drums. I had forgotten about the name of the band and loved the play on "Synchronicity," the famous album by The Police. This pin measures 3 inches across with a single clasp in the back. At first I was worried the beginning and end of the name could break off, but after handling the pin, it's solid.


This was my first review for The Office Box and I was very pleasantly surprised. Much like the DC Comics Worlds Finest Collection, CultureFly finds cool, fun, and clever ways to make exclusive items for fans. I feel like they abandoned the "Midnight" theme pretty quickly. I'm certain they could have come up with some more ideas from the movie. Personally, my favorite items were the scarecrow, because of episode it comes from, and the tote bag, because it's large and functional. The TLM hoodie and pint glass were cool. Sort of like having some inside-joke movie merchandise. The Date Mike hat was a miss for me, because, even if hats fit me, it's not something I think someone would actually wear. Maybe for Halloween? I did appreciate the cleverness of the name tags though. I am not the world's biggest The Office fan (I had to Google some of these items), but I've always loved the show and appreciate the amount of source material this subscription will be able to pull from to make enjoyable items for a long time to come. I look forward to seeing what is next for The Office Box.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $39.99/quarter + shipping


For the quarterly cost of $39.99, each of the eight products has an average value of $5. The real value of this box is that these are officially licensed, exclusive items. You can't buy these items on a shelf and, if you could, it would cost you well over $40, in my opinion. I could have done without the "Date Mike" stuff and picture frame, and I still think this box was worth it. If you are a The Office fan or you know someone who is, I suggest reading some of our reviews and seeing if you'd like to receive all this exclusive The Office merch.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Normally I would say "If you subscribe today, your first box will be the Winter 2021 box." However, the Fall box was very delayed and actually arrived on my porch the same day as the Winter box. So, I believe you would actually receive the Spring 2022 at this point.

I have to agree with you. Your customer service and your product should both be excellent. I too have had size problems with CultureFly and wish they were better at listening. I wish you the best in getting your problem fixed and completely understand if you are taking your money elsewhere. Thanks for commenting.

This is the first time I’ve ever been sad to miss out on one of these boxes. Awesome review! Also, the portrait was Michaels wedding gift for Jim and Pam.

And Michael painted it himself, saying that he’d painted another one of them naked but kept it for himself. ;-P Those two wedding episodes were hilarious but also at times touching!
