The holidays are officially upon us- a time to celebrate the year that has passed and make new memories with the people we cherish most. This month’s POPSUGAR Must Have Box contains all the essentials for life’s best celebrations– a mix of home decor musts to set the scene, fun party favors, and a palette to get that festive holiday look just right.
The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a lifestyle subscription box curated by the POPSUGAR editors that includes beauty, fashion, fitness, food, even home items. Every month, a new box is released containing new items (full-sized!) from these categories, here’s a look and review on what’s inside the November box:
I was pleasantly surprised to open my box and discover the AJ Goods Nest Wire Bowl ($35 value), a handmade metal wire bowl in a matte charcoal shade that can be used for fruits, or other festive decor. Measuring 4″H x 11″D, this bowl makes a fantastic table centerpeice or for a shelf display and would work with virtually any decor taste.
On the home decor front, the box also contains a Pehr Chambray Runner in Wine ($44 value) a nice table runner (measuring 14″W x 90″L). I love the mix of the creamy beige and the gorgeous burgundy wine shade, perfect to help set the fall/winter mood. The runner is made of quality chambray material and I adore the frayed edges– it really adds a pop of personality to the table. Pehr also included a 25% off coupon on future pruchase in the box as well.
One of my favorite trinkets in this month’s box is the Kendra Scott Elaina Rose Gold Bracelet in White Pearl ($50 value). This delicate bracelet includes a rose g old chain with an adjustable sliding closure that makes it easy to wear and features a pretty white pearl stone in classic KS style. There is also a 20% off coupon for a future Kendra Scott purchase was also included in the box (yes to more coupons for gifting savings!)
How adorable are the pretty little Meri Meri Star Party Picks ($8 value)?
This glittering star pick set includes 24 party picks (in 2 different sizes- small and large in silver and gold) that add a little pizzazz to those holiday appetizers. I used them on a platter of meatball hors d’oeuvres and I must say, they classed the dish up quite a bit! I took a peek at the Meri Meri website and they have SO many cute party supplies and decor, definitely worth a look.
Another favorite from the November box is the Stowaway Cosmetics Dawn To Dusk Palette ($25 value), which includes an array of 8 matte and satin shimmer shades in one adorable mini palette to get holiday party-ready with. This palette comes complete with a mirror and a mini double-sided brush– blending brush on one side, angled brush on the other. The shadow colors are gorgeous (I am LOVING the copper-orange shade) and have really good pigmentation. The color-combo possibilities are endless!
I have never tried or even heard of Stowaway Cosmetics before and love learning about new beauty items. Did you know that the entire line is designed for travel or for “stowing” in your bag? Clever! I am also loving that the line is paraben-free and cruelty-free. There was also a coupon for 25% off any Stowaway Cosmetics order of $50 or more. Score!
Finally, no Must Have box is complete withouta tasty treat- this month’s it is Oogie’s Toffee Butter Popcorn ($3 value). You guys… this popcorn is seriously ADDICTING. It has the perfect blend of sweet and salty buttery toffee flavor and I love that it’s made with all-natural, gluten-free ingredients. Even my cat managed to snag a piece and eat it!
Tell me, what do you love most from this month’s box?
Bonus: I was also sent this month’s Must Have MINI, a smaller version of the Must Have box containing 2 full-size items, (beauty, fashion or home), different than those featured in the regular Must Have box, for just $15.95! November’s box included Meri Meri Mini Gold Star Garland ($10 value), a mini approx. 6 ft (although mine was shorter) garland strand of gold glitter stars- so cute, but the glitter is only on one side so it may be tricky to set it up so only the glitter side shows. To be honest, I’m not sure I would actually pay even $10 for such a homemade looking garland, but it is cute– I used it to decorate the table for my boyfriend’s birthday. The box also included the Juara Tumeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask ($38 value), a non-drying clay mask designed to detoxify and brighten skin. I have heard that tumeric is an excellent detoxifier and brightener for skin so I am excited to try this out. With a $48 value for under $16, the Must Have Mini box is a total steal.
