PopSugar Must Have February 2015 *May Contain Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to start thinking about a Valentine's themed box!  My favorite was the year we got the hanky pankys and the brokedown spa wrap (slash handkerchief), which I know was an unpopular opinion due to the sizing problems. PSMH was still new to me and I felt so fun and girly opening it.  I'd only read Nicholas Sparks for you, popsugar!

So not only are they shipping the February box via FedEx Ground, we're now hearing the Feb box has already sold out and current subscriptions will start with the March 2015 box.

 

Anyone else think they are shortening inventory in order to be able to say things sold out quickly a la the Target box? That way people will be chomping at the bit as soon as a new box is announced. Just a thought anyway.

 

Any idea what they might be doing for February! I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for a Dial body wash *snicker*

Agreed-- that box was one of my Fav PS boxes to date. I love that spa wrap!!! I just got an email from NCLA with super cute valentines day nail wraps & polishes-- I know this brand shows up in our boxes from time to time & I would luv luv these holiday related products !!!

There will be chocolates for sure, that's a definite "Must Have" for a Valentine's theme.

 

Other ideas/wishlist:

- A bracelet or necklace (Tiffany's silver bracelet with the turquoise heart charm....a girl can dream, right?!)

- A blanket or throw to snuggle up with your sweetie (or cat.)

- Maybe chocolate-covered strawberries? 

- A "romantic" eye shadow palette or make-up of some sort?

- Perfume, though I suppose that's pretty risky since not all women like the same scents.

- Undoubtedly, we'll get a candle. Maybe a candle "accessory" like a candle snuffer would be fun?

Already got a blanket and candle from the holiday box for her, they were gorgeous, but frankly I don't need another. Would be nice to get a melting wax for a Scentsy type burner or a scented oil and oil warming unit.

Really don't want another fiction/ romance book, would love something on different styles of makeup applications,/looks (eye's especially) or maybe a how to put some romance back into your relationship.

 

A Techie accessory other than earbuds would be fun... Maybe a chromecast toggle or a Fitbit? (((~~wishing~~))). Valentine's nail goodies or some stack rings would be fun. A lasso heart necklace or a cuff bracelet. Chocolates...definately chocolate! Loved those delish caramels from the Holiday box.

Let s see this month I d love to see some delicious truffles, the flower gift card is such a cute idea, I d love some kind of cooking tool/accessory/cookboo- much prefer a romantic dinner in than battling the crowds valentines day, would love a nice lip scrub, a body spray or one of those fancy perfume bottles, a hair tool, and fun girly movie movie or book.  I d love to see some fun mix of things for a night in either with friends and/or for a romantic evening and a pampering item or 2.  Love reading everyone's wish lists.  You ladies have such great ideas :)

I love the tech idea and the fitness idea. I doubt they'd send a fitbit after the Target box, but maybe a Amazon or Chromecast dongle like aweheck suggested.

Wow, so February is already sold out, like before it was even breathed about, really? What's up with that? I barely get a chance to tell my friends to subscribe with the discount code and it's gone in just hours?

 

The site says March boxes are up for sale. What should I tell her to do? Does the wait (check)box option ever work? She'll be moving mid March, I don't know if I should encourage her to try that or not. How would she find out which box they will send her?

Oops - looks like 2 of us were posting a February thread at the same time. Mods, can these be combined?

@@roohound

Yep, we've merged them.  Thanks for letting us know!

I guess so many people snapped up the $20 January boxes that they maxed out boxes for subscribers for next month. That said, I would bet if you get on the wait list for February some of those will free up.

It is crazy that they're sold out until March!  I was also super surprised that the Target collaboration box sold out so quickly - I was waiting for spoilers and then poof, it was gone (and I'm so sad that I missed that one!).  It seemed to take forever to sell out of the November, December and Holiday/Neimen's boxes late last year...

 

Maybe this is also a way to keep us from cancelling and re-subbing every month????  I definitely don't want to miss out on Feb., so I guess I'll keep my sub going.

My dream feb box...All things that could either be used with a significant other or to just pamper yourself (GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY CHEESE AND CHOCOLATE)

 

- Chick lit

- Super fancy chocolates

- A fondue set

- Coupon for a bottle of wine and/or flowers (great idea, @@naturalactions!)

- A bath soak...I just got one that has rose petals in it, which is nice and romantic and would fit this theme

- Tickets to see 50 shades of gray (it comes out on the 14th, haha)

I may regret this later, but I'm still cancelling mine. I think this is a great subscription overall, especially since it has so many non beauty items, but even if I think about the items in each box that I love the most (the cup from January, the scarf and bowl from December - even the Fitbit from the Target collaboration box that I didn't get) I don't NEED those items and the $40 price tag is just a little steep for a monthly treat for myself since I truly don't need (or sometimes want) all of the items. $20-$30? - now you're talking my language :) This is just me, of course. I respect that to some that may be a no brainer to grab it, given the chance and price.

 

That being said, I'll probably be super jealous when the Feb box reveals come out, so I'll just live vicariously through you all :)

I personally think $40 is also too much to spend on a box of unknowns...  but I got the black friday deal so the 6 month sub is a more reasonable price.... and so far, the nov, dec and Jan box got items that I ended up using quite often....so its all good to me...  once my 6 month is up I will probably have to do the sub unsub by promo code game or I may just be over Pop sugar or I may just wait for a good friday deal again....  I am expecting a baby girl..   so money can be a bit tight now, at the same time, i'd like to think with a baby girl..  this monthly treat will now REALLY be a treat for me!

I felt this way and was going to cancel. I was the queen of signing up and canceling and re-signing up with a $10 off coupon. But when they had the 6 month Black Friday deal for $139 - I jumped on it. It brought the monthly price down to a bit under $23.50 a month which I was able to justify. Much more palatable than $39.99 a month. We are fine $$-wise but I have trouble justifying spending what I kind of consider frivolous $$$ on myself - especially since we are working on adopting a teen from foster care. But I figured she will probably like some of the goodies too so I was able to totally justify that 6 month sub lol lol

Chocolate would be grand.  Add a candle snuffer and I'd have a winning box!!!
