I was totally on the fence about the Limited Edition Birchbox Home Box and wasn’t sure if it was worth the $58. I mean, it looked cool, but do I need more spatulas? But once Birchbox came out with a 20% off code and they still had some in stock, I went for it. It worked out to be $46 and I used my Birchbox points to get it, so it was totally free. And get this, I didn’t even open it when it arrived. Nope, I waited till Christmas morning!
The Birchbox Home box was billed as a great hostess gift and included “everything you need for a season’s worth of entertaining.”
~Birchbox Recipe Cards ($10): At first I thought these were blank recipe cards and was all meh about them. But now I have realized it’s a set of 12 recipes from three of Birchboxes favorite food bloggers! Fun fun! And they are super cute to boot.
~Core Bamboo Paris Utensil Set ($15): I won a Core Bamboo bowl and serving set a few years ago and still use it all the time. I think I am going to toss all my crappy spatulas and replace them with these nice ones!
~Quirky Stem ($4.99): I’ve seen these at Target and have always considered getting one, but never did. I am curious to see how often we really use this though. If you have it, do you use it often?
~Dean & Deluca Rosemary ($3.75): This is totally a B item and I am sure he will love it. And does anyone else immediately think of Felicity when they hear Dean & Deluca? Surely I cannot be the only one?
~Sabatini & Co Roma Truffle and Sicilian Sea Salt ($20.50): Now that I have received the awful news that Starbucks is no longer making Salted Caramel Mochas (at least not without the salt topping), I am even more excited about this! If carrying this in my bag to top my own drinks is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
~Antica Farmacista Prosecco Home Ambiance Fragrance ($25): This is so fancy, I cannot even figure out how to say it. The scent. “Prosecco” is a crisp mixture of Satsuma citrus, passion fruit, and apricot and smells amazing!
~Birchbox Chalkboard Placecards (Set of 4) ($15): OMG, I love these. There aren’t enough for a dinner party or anything, but L is all about setting the table lately, so I cannot wait to start using these at dinner time. He is going to think writing names on these and deciding where everyone sits is the best thing ever!
~Birchbox Cocktail Napkins ($5): These are adorable, but would I ever pay $5 for paper napkins? No way! I will for sure use them though.
~P.S. – I Made This…DIY Kit ($25): I am not totally sure of the value of this DIY kit, but similar P.S. I Made This… kits sold ranged from $24 – $38. so I think the $25 value is fair. This kit includes everything you need to create one-of-a-kind fabric napkins, gift tags and more. I’d never heard of P.S. I Made This…before this box, but I have to admit, I am loving their ideas and website!
~Paperless Post Greeting Cards ($5): I’ve also never heard of Paperless Post(and made up the value of these), but they have a lot of cute and unique cards and stationery and I think I might order from here next time I am in the market for notecards!
~Jonathan Adler Playing Cards ($10): The box came with a choice of Jonathan Adler Playing Cards or Chambre de Sucre Gourmet Sugar. Since the only use I have for fancy sugar is decorating cookies with a 4 year-old, I went for the playing cards! They are very stylish and I am happy with my pick. All the other decks of cards we have are from various Vegas casinos ;).
I am super excited I decided to go for this box and totally think it worth the cost. By my estimates, the box has a value of just under $140. Not too shabby for $46 right? This box would have made an amazing hostess gift or even would have been a great box to get and break up into a few smaller gifts.
