The Office Box is a quarterly subscription box full of exclusive, officially licensed merch from the hit TV show. Inside, you'll find exclusive 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.)
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 month's box looks like a ream of paper with a Christmas theme. The inside has a bunch of drawings from the "Yankee Swap" episode.
What's In The Box?
"Happy Holidays" Long Sleeve Shirt
This quarter's wearable is a blue long sleeve shirt and features Dwight (as an Elf) kicking over a Christmas tree with a banner than says, "Happy Holidays from Dunder Mifflin." There are broken ornaments down the right sleeve and nothing on the back. I like the juxtaposition of wishing you happy holidays with an image of a Christmas tree being kicked over. The sleeve was a nice touch.
Dunder Mifflin Knit Scarf
To take the winter chill off your neck, there is this nice Dunder Mifflin scarf. It's light blue with dark blue stripes and a DM logo. It measures 5 feet long and 7 inches wide. I love the colors, functionality, and warmth of this item.
Fear Snowballs Snowglobe
This snow globe stands 4 inches tall. Inside is an image of a gang of snowmen waiting in the parking lot. My image is crooked and I'm not sure if it is supposed to be. The quote on the front is, "In the end, the greatest snowball of all isn't a snowball at all. It's fear." Said by Dwight in the Season 7 Christmas episode. In that episode, Dwight attacks Jim with snowballs so often that he begins to live in fear. I think this would look great on a desk in the office.
Jim and Pam Stackable Mugs
The biggest item in this quarter's box is a pair of a stacking mugs. They feature everyone's favorite Office sweethearts Jim and Pam, along with some cartoon drawings. I don't recognize the drawings, but nothing in this sub is random. They are probably references that I don't know. I don't know what purpose there is to stacking them, except to save space in your cupboard. I really like this set, but if I could complain, I would like to have a Pam mug and Jim mug. It may look that way in these photographs, but they are the same design, just rotated a bit. Still, they are great, although not microwave or dishwasher safe.
Oscar's Secret Santa Keychain
This items is a perfectly-sized one-sided keychain featuring a four leaf clover on a checked background. To be honest, I don't know what episode this is from or what it means. I'm assuming it's also from the Yankee Swap episode. Maybe a reader can help me with that. Even if you aren't a fan of The Office, I think this keychain looks cool and interesting. I like it.
Elf Dwight Cozy Socks
Like the shirt above, these fuzzy socks feature Dwight dressed as an elf. They are green with red accents. I'm personally not a fan of fuzzy socks, but they feel very warm. I think these will be a Christmas gift for the Office fan in my family.
Holiday Pins Button Pin Set
Ever quarter has some sort of pin. This time there are two rectangle button pins. One is from the Yankee Swap episode. The other has a quote, "This is a perfectly good mini tree. We're going to sell that to charity. That's what Christmas is all about." I really like that they went with a different style of pin this time. I especially like the Yankee Swap pin.
Just like their Halloween box, The Office Box delivers a great Christmas themed box. You get a long sleeved shirt, scarf, and fuzzy socks to keep you warm. I guess the mugs do that too, in a way. Almost each item is taken from the same episode, but that just goes to show how deep the show is. Personally, I like the mugs and keychain the most. I'm a big coffee drinker and I like interesting, small keychains to carry around. I also really like the scarf, although I kinda wish the logo was smaller. I like the color and design. As I said, I'm not a fan of fuzzy socks and the snow globe, while nice isn't for me. Maybe my kiddos will enjoy it. I like the pins and prefer them to the heavy, sometimes clunky pins that this and many other subs include in their boxes. Overall, this was a great effort. I love how many items they think up from The Office.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $39.99/quarter + shipping
For the quarterly cost of $39.99, each of the seven products has an average value of $5.70. Even with the few items I didn't care for, I think this box's value easily exceeds the cost. 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. 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.
