I was going to wait until tomorrow to post my review on B’s PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Holiday for Him, but I figured it’s already been a crazy PopSugar day on here, so let’s just round it out.
PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post (starts out as FedEx ends up being transferred to USPS for delivery) and this box took the standard week to arrive. And like half my packages, it was dropped off on my porch nice and early this morning. The rest of my mail and packages came at the standard 4pm.
The “For Him” box was in the same size box as the Special Edition for women box. Like I mentioned in that review, it’s smaller than the other special edition boxes we’ve received. But the box itself is nicer.
Everything was packaged perfectly and the items were individually wrapped up. I opened everything up, took pictures and then repacked for B to do as he pleased with.
The PopSugar Special Edition Must Have Holiday for Him information card was much like that in the women’s special edition box. It folded out lengthwise and was printed on a nicer paper. This card didn’t indicate much of a theme other than that this box was like a “secret so good that they’re impossible to keep”. It included the following:
~Mark and Graham – Everyday Leather Travel Pouch ($79): This is a smaller pouch than B’s normal dopp kit (which in my eyes is a makeup bag for men) (he uses the one that came in Bespoke Post), but this may work for traveling. It’s very well made and I could smell the leather as soon as I opened the box it was in.
~Apolis – Flannel Wool Tie ($68): B received the black tie so it’s super hard to see it in my picture. Hindsight tells me I should have taken this picture on a surface that was not black. “Fred” (our elf on the shelf) made a complete mess of our counters last night (he was making snow angels) so I had to relocate for today’s pictures. The tie is great and I know just need to figure out what B is going to wear with it.
~Native Union – Monocle Speaker ($49.99): I’m not so sure about this one. B listens to his iPad / iPhone every night when he cooks (meaning we all listen to it), but it’s usually just on speaker and it’s just fine. Might as well give this a go though? Can’t hurt!
~Malin+Goetz – 1 oz. Essential Kit ($30): Totally love. This is B’s favorite item in the box. It’s perfect for traveling (the pouch and sizes are all carry-on approved). B doesn’t travel like he used to (he may eventually travel like that again though), but he will totally use all these even if he doesn’t travel. He’s a total product guy and he’s never tried this brand before.
~Soxiety – Striped Cotton-Blend Socks ($12): Never have a ever received a duster bag for socks. Expensive purses? Yep. Shoes? Sometimes. But socks? Never. Ha! I found this highly entertaining and plan to keep this little bag to store my mess of unmatched socks. I still hope to find their matches one day. B says the socks are his second favorite item in the box.
~Funky Chunky – ChipZelPop ($6.50): Chips + Pretzels + Popcorn. Delicious. I suspect these will be demolished in the next few minutes!
~Krave – Jerky ($7): Krave isn’t B’s favorite beef jerky, however I think even he was excited when he saw the flavor. They are sending variations, but we got “Black Cherry Barbecue”. I am packing this in B’s lunch tomorrow!
All totaled I came up with a value of $251.49 for the Special Edition PopSugar Must Have Holiday Box for Him. I thought this box was worth the $100 price tag , but I wouldn’t have paid $250+! The skincare products + tie + socks + snacks made the box for us and the rest was just a bonus!
