POPSUGAR Must Have January 2014 (SPOILERS!)

Thinking ahead...

Cruel! I don't have my December boxes (though the postman should be here any moment with some of them... I ordered all three). I hate waiting! And I'm spoiler free, and there are many pages of unread posts calling out to me, but I am staying strong. So now... already January! It's coming! And I hope it is fabulous.

Mine are even remotely close to me.  I swear I live in a POPSUGAR dead zone.

subbing!

My wishlist for January:

 

- I really hope there is a cool fiction book in the January box! Something newly released/best seller would be awesome. They haven't done a fiction book for several months!

 

- Something really high-end for a beauty item! Ideas would be lip gloss/lip balm in colors that would suit everybody, a rollerball perfume in a highly marketable or popular scent, highlighter

 

- Gloves or mittens/winter knit hat

 

- Seeing as how it is January, possibly something for organization/home/office - calendars, planners, stationary/thank you cards

 

- Gift card for online store with reasonably priced shoes

post #7 of 1109

I was very disappointed with December, so I am really hoping for better items in January.  They did a planner for the limited edition box so I hope there isn't one in January too!  Maybe a nice pen or mechanical pencil?  I would like to see hat and/or gloves as well or even cute slippers/socks.  A high-end cocoa would be a nice touch.

We've had a lot of snow lately and apparently I really want things to keep me warm brrrr.gif

post #8 of 1109

It's almost January already, kind of depressing! Anyway, this may possibly be my last PS for a while, unless they blow me away. So, heres to hoping for a fabulous January! Decemeber kinda held up to my expectations, I actually said I wanted flutes in Dec. so maybe I'll get 1 item I wanted in January!

January ... thoughts of the holidays being over and settling in for winter come to mind and not to mention resolutions. And so with that in mind .... a wearable fitness item would be cool (don't know how they would do that without a dreaded GC) and a High-end beauty product .. or bath product (LUSH). Other than that a nice Novel and cocoa/coffee sounds nice!!

post #9 of 1109
Ooh I love the hot cocoa idea! I would also like some soft comfy aloe socks or socks that are gel lined for winter. Maybe some natural chapstick and a designer calendar since I've been lazy and haven't bought one yet. I'm also hoping for a nice headband or a cool hair accessory. Lately I've just been in a ponytail mood and need to do something with my hair! I'll be so mad if they include another bracelet so lets hope that they won't.
post #10 of 1109

Oh another idea would be a cute clutch or other type of bag, like a quality stylish tote bag (not like a grocery tote bag). Gosh I really wish I could work as a curator for a box! How does one get a gig like that? Sign me up. wavey.gif

post #11 of 1109

In the spirit of New Years resolution my wish list is:

 

-Some sort of healthy (but yummy) snack

-A bag to stay organized and put my Ipad and day planner in easily (Tote like said above would be good)

-lip scrub

-Movie tickets (I've been wishing for these since I missed them in september 2012)

-A thick headband to go over your ears and keep you warm

-a watch would be nice

 

Here's to Pop Sugar bringing in an amazing New Year for us.

post #12 of 1109

January will only be my second box so I'm excited. I love the idea of hot cocoa, some warm slipper socks and a good novel. Because that is exactly what I want to do in cold January! Or a cute hat to play in the snow! I also love the kitchen items I've seen in the box. Or some nice hand lotion to keep my hands from cracking! 

post #13 of 1109

I love all these ideas! I'm also hoping for:

 

-A letter-pressed calendar

-A book/pair of movie tickets 

-Coffee cup/travel mug (I've been hoping for this since September haha)

-Hot chocolate and a mini bottle of Bailey's or butterscotch schnapps (highly doubt they'd be able to do the alcohol, but a girl can wish, right?) 

-Slippers or boot socks

-Throw blanket

I second the throw blanket, slippers, book or movie tickets. I would also love a cup heater. I don't know if that is the official name of it, but it's a mini heating dish that you put your coffee mug on in the office to keep it warm. I think that is too specific of a thing for PS to send but I have always wanted/ "needed" one. Also, a good moisturizer is on my list this time of year. 

post #15 of 1109

In general, I’d like:

 

More kitchen stuff. There are gadgets I’ve wondered about but would never buy on my own. I’m sure some would be must-haves if I tried them.

 

Brooches. I wish they’d come back in style – they’re fun to pin on a coat collar in winter, and no worries about sizing. 

 

More desk stuff. Nice pens, notecards, pencil cups, etc – but sophisticated and not what you’d find at Staples. SeeJanework has good examples. 

 

Entertainment as a more regular category. Books, movie tickets, DVDs, games, maybe vouchers to watch films online or download ebooks, for example on sites like Libero

 

More holders/storage: ring holders, jewellery rolls, pouches, wallets, wristlets, makeup bags, nice boxes, etc.

 

More discount codes for brands already featured in the box. And no discount codes for brands that aren’t already featured.

 

More eco-friendly stuff. There are a lot of smaller brands that a lot of people probably haven’t tried, because the products tend to be a little more expensive or harder to find

post #16 of 1109

I love all the ideas, ladies! All I have to contribute is that I'm also hoping for "cozy" type items like cocoa, etc. I'd love an AWESOME lotion, like the Tocca Cleopatra (well a bigger size) I got in Birchbox this month. Oh, and (plz, plz, plz) a box quite totally unlike last January. lol.

post #17 of 1109

Boy there are so many great ideas already posted.

I love the idea of a nice tote.  Has anyone seen those oh so cute knitted headbands many seem to be wearing?  That would be different and adjustable depending on the design ( I have seen several with a button).  I would love a work out theme, or me time theme.  I would totally dig a fresh work out dvd.  But it cannot be so hard, that I cannot do it, and it cannot be so easy - others cannot get use out of it.  Is there any other workout stuff that seems on trend?  What about a smart pedometer?  Is there such a thing?  Like a pocket book pedometer?  haha!  I can get some serious miles on when shopping!

 

I would love a watch, I've been around since June, so never got to see any watch from PS.  I finally found some video to help describe the light show on the last watch PS gave out.  WOW.  Earrings are so hit and miss, but that would be very cool. 

 

What about a technology theme?  Too expensive probably.

A tote or pocket book.  I could really go for a nice casual but classic looking pocket book.

You know - I really don't want any gift certificates that do not get me a free item.  Sure, send me card, but the card HAS to at least get me 1 free item.

post #18 of 1109

Most of my wishlist items have already been mentioned but I would LOVE

 

-Something warm and fuzzy! hat/headband, mittens, or socks!

-A book would be amazing. I love snuggling up in bed with a good book in the winter

-Lip or body scrub to ward off all the winter dry skin!

-A cute wintery coffee mug with coffee or cocoa

-Fleece throw blanket would be wonderful!

-Tote bag or clutch

-Roll-on Perfume Oil

-2014 Planner

 

I am really hoping for PopSugar to not let me down in January. I only have received one box from them and that was the December box, which I wasn't happy with at all. I'm hoping I made the right decision cancelling a few of my other subs so that I could try this one out. Here's hoping! :)

post #19 of 1109

i would love a warm hat that doesn't make my hair go all looking like i stuck myfinger in a light socket whan i take it off!! now that would be a great item. a lip scrub would be great too. also a really good moisturizer because it was -2 this morning and no matter what i use on my face nothing seems to be working for this chapped skin. even my egyptian magic is not cutting it!!

post #20 of 1109

Looking forward to my second box!

post #21 of 1109
I would love more home items, bakery items (no generic chocolate), workout gear (maybe something to hold an iPhone or keys), a nice facial cleanser, and a fiction book.
post #22 of 1109
Wish list:

Workout stuff: a resistance band, yoga mat, water bottle with filter, or a Zumba DVD would all be totally acceptable fitness items for me. Please no DVDs that are too difficult to complete...that chair workout was awful. I was so afraid of tipping the chair over the whole time.

Media: I would be happy with a book or movie tickets, but nothing too vapid. I want something that isn't too intense or taxing (I can't imagine PS sending out something like that anyway), but still has a good storyline. This is more tech than media, but I would really appreciate a pair of touch screen gloves.

Organization: I would love an alarm clock. Please, PopSugar, send me an amazing alarm clock! I would also love a Quirky pen zen or a fun page a day calendar.

Food: Something savory would be nice, but no matter what please no protein bars/shakes for January just because it's the new year.

Other: this is a weird request but I would love it if PS would send an air freshener for the car or a fancy room/sheet spray. A nice neutral wallet with lots of slots for cards would be great too. I would also enjoy an umbrella but I realize that this has geographic limitations.

That's all I can think of for now! If I could get even one of my wishes answered I would be so happy! That is probably a sign that I should take my $30 elsewhere, but I prepaid for a sub and I am just too addicted to be logical about this stuff. smile.gif

I love the idea of a water bottle with filter.

 

Oh and I would think an umbrella would be perfect! It surely rains in most places, right? Probably more geographically appropriate than gloves, hats or other warm weather gear.

Love this list...I would use everything, especially love the boot socks.  Although I love in a pretty rural area and would have to likely travel an hour +  to use the movie tickets, they would definitely get used!  I know workout stuff is popular, but I will never use it..a nice workout bag or water bottle yes, but no dvd's please.

I really, really despise most "work out gear" as I live on the 3rd floor of a very old apartment and my big butt trying to exercise literally will shake the entire house. It's the gym or nothng for me! I have a Yoga mat already and Idk how the heck they'd fit one in a box, haha, but i'd be fine with another one! Also the water bottle/filter is a great idea.

 

Also, I could totally get down with a cute alarm clock because I never hear my phone alarm! :) A wallet would be awesome! Wallets are always included in men's boxes like women don't carry them too! Car freshener and sheet spray sounds awesome. I love "good smelling" things!

Sheet sprays are the best because they're usually formulated with a powder of some sort that keeps your sheets dry and fresh. I think it would be a great summer item but I would love it in January too!

post #26 of 1109
I still love the tech gloves idea. And more home stuff would be great!

I'd love to get a Zumba DVD or a water bottle with a filter as well! (:

post #28 of 1109


a travel coffee mug would be awesome. I love the contigo ones 1) It doesn't have an open top so it can't spill 2) you can open it up really easily with one hand 3) my two year old hasn't figured out that you just push it. I get the water bottles and coffee mugs, but I could always use more

Do you ever wear them? Can you give me ideas for wearing them? I keep getting really pretty ones as gifts and have no idea what to do with them, lol.

post #30 of 1109

THere isn't much they could send me that would disappoint me, at this point!

 

I would love something cute for the home, something warm and fuzzy, and something yoga related. :)
