First Impressions: "The One With All The Thanksgivings"
This box was a throwback to one of my favorite episodes: "The One With All The Thanksgivings." I probably rewatch this episode at least four to five times every year…if not more! The box is filled with Thanksgiving-themed items, including the Friends cookbook!
What’s Inside the Box
Central Perk Apron
Perhaps the most useful item in the box. The Central Perk apron got me channeling my inner Gunther as I tried to whip up a coffee in the morning. It has two nice sizeable pockets, and the fabric is quite stiff, so definitely good for baking or perhaps BBQing.
I was surprised to find this in the box. I had no idea there was a Friends’ cookbook. I cannot wait for Thanksgiving, so I can try to replicate Ross’s sandwich. I promise I’ll read the recipe twice to ensure mine doesn’t taste like feet!
I’m the type that matches her tea towels to the season, so this one is an excellent add-on for me. Plus, I love that only my true Friends fans will recognize what it’s all about.
I work from home, but I still like to have some containers around whenever we go to the beach or when I head over to a park. I wanted that it has everything you need to pack a quick lunch. And it has built-in handles to make it look like a picnic basket.
I haven’t baked in quite some time. But I can’t wait to try one of the recipes from the book and use these adorable liners. They’re perfect for Friendsgiving!
Every box comes with a collectible item, and this time is a glass tumbler with one of the most epic pictures ever. This can double as a tremendous Friendsgiving gift if you don’t want to keep it.
To go with the placemat set from the previous box, you can now extend your collection with these Thanksgiving-themed ones. I love the Turkey Day one; I’ll definitely be serving some turkey with that one.
Was the Box Worth It?
This box included the cookbook that sells for $29.99; the box is only $39.99 ($35.99 on the annual plan) , which makes it worth it. The bento box, apron, and glass tumbler also make great additions. Overall, this box includes exceptional items I can see myself using around the house for the festivities.
To Wrap It Up
Is this box still available? No! However, there is still time to subscribe and receive the Christmas box before it’s sold out.
