It is a bad sign when I am immediately thinking of people I could give the stuff to.

I get to anticipate each item, specifically. I get to research them individually, and figure out what the retail prices are, look at reviews, etc. For instance, those Vino wine glasses we got are pretty cool, but I might not have thought so on seeing them for the first time in my box.

 

I just know this month's box is going to be good. I don't want to wait for the Mayan apocalypse. I want to know, right now!

 

When everyone is excited, it makes *me* excited to get my box ... but when everyone starts posting how disappointed they are in this or that, I get bummed out about the box even if it may have been items I would have been perfectly happy with otherwise!  LOL.  I've still been happy overall, and wind up getting spoiled on at least part of the box since not everything makes it under a cut.  But I'm weak and I see that this thread has totally blown up since yesterday ...  so it looks like I am going to be spoiled!  My box just made it to Sacramento this morning so I won't get it until Friday or Monday anyway ...  I'll either be *really* excited to get it, or have gotten over my disappointment!  :)

I'm so disappointed this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my first box and I am somewhat disappointed. I wanted a yoga item since that was what pulled me in! I do like tea...and chocolate items are always good, but I think I'm trying to be optimistic about it. Now I wish I ordered a luxe box but $100?!!? Really?! I had canceled but I may resubscribe just in the hopes of getting fitness stuff for January, if the prediction is correct (New Years Resolutions?). Boooo... I was blown away from what I saw in the September and October Boxes, I wish my first box was more like those....

I really hope they get better or I'll be canceling. I may use the mugs... we'll see. I have plenty already! I'm not a fan of hot tea, so I may be selling that box to coworkers. The minimergency kit may be handy. I'll probably take the peppermint snacks to work to share. The other stuff... eh. I can take it or leave it. Not what I was hoping for in my first box. icon_sad.gif

I couldn't agree more with everything you said. I am in the exact same boat.

post #458 of 1046

Yes! Because most of the items would be kind of lame or weird to give. Like a bar of soap?  Who is gonna be stoked about that?  And I only know one person who might actually be pleased with the tea stuff.

I will hold judgement until I actually get the box and see everything. I can find a use for everything, so I am not too worried, but I was hoping for more. I did buy both luxe boxes and I am terrified that they won't be any good. I am hoping I won't be sorry I made that decision.
post #460 of 1046

I'm actually somewhat okay with this box. While there is nothing I'm going absolutely crazy over, I know I'll get good use out of some of the items. Plus, I know a lot of us sometimes feel differently once we actually receive the box and can test out/use the items!

 

I do agree, though, that it's a bit of a letdown compared to past boxes and also with it being the holiday season and all. That said, I'm even more excited for the Luxury Box and hope that it blows this one out of the water times ten! eusa_pray.gif

post #461 of 1046

Okay so I just tried to resubscribe but the price went up. I had originally signed up in October I think, and they charged me a total of $32.63, and now it cost $38.06 (with tax)? Now I have to think about resubbing because it's not $30 dollars but closer to $40. Oh and I just noticed that renewing my sub means starting with a Feb box, so I won't be able to get the Jan box after all. Hmmm valentines things....for $40....

 

 

Well back to studying for finals!

post #462 of 1046

Does anyone have a rough idea as to what the box is worth (without listing the items please!!!) ??  I'm still spoiler free, but I'd like to know how much this box is worth...keule.gif

post #463 of 1046

I think it is still a fun box. Not the best one ever but certainly light years ahead of the first month's.

GoSwype thing to use on my iPhone - I'm constantly cleaning off the screen to avoid breaking out on my cheeks - typing/swiping/tapping on your phone and then placing it on your face is just not a good combination lol. So yay for this item!

post #465 of 1046

Hi all!  This is my first post...  After seeing everyone rave about the boxes, I went ahead and signed up myself (won't get my 1st box until February)...  I also purchased two of the December boxes as gifts for family members, but now after seeing the contents, I am worried they will be disappointed.  I figured out of any month to 'hook' or 'wow' subscribers, it would be December!!  I also bought the lux box for my boyfriend just out of curiosity, and am kind of worried that box will be a bust too... sadno.gif

post #466 of 1046

I was really excited when I saw the instagram pic because I know someone who can totally use the two identifiable items in the pic.   Now that I spoiled myself and know the full contents, I'm still happy about everything.  It will probably be like the socks box month, where I was sort of "meh" about getting it but ended up really liking everything.  LOVE those socks!

When you signed up originally, maybe you used a $5 off coupon code for new subscribers?  As far as I know, it has always been $35 for a month, but the tax is relatively new and depends on your location.

I have two unopened copies of the yogalosophy (sp?) dvd because we have two popsugar subs in our household.  I don't know if you have a trade list or anything but I would consider trading one of the dvds for something!

I do agree that it's lightyears ahead of the first month, and I'm not TOTALLY dissapointed (the tea/mugs will definitely get a lot of use at my house), but I also definitely wouldn't call it a "fun" box... the whole fun of PopSugar is it's supposed to be indulgent... and to quote someone else, nothing in there comes close to having a cupcake for breakfast. Here's hoping the Luxury box wows the pants off all of us!

The box is kinda MEH. I was hoping for something like the bracelet again and the cool codes from last month. But I do like the

I agree! Overall, I think there are more useable things in this box than last months box.

Last month, that bracelet didn't fit, I am not a fan of StyleMint or the other Mints,and hated the jewelry I finally got, it looked cheap.

I don't cook so the spices and donut mix were giveaways. 

 

So I am looking forward to this month.
