PopSugar Must Have Box – December 2012

PopSugar Must Have Box - December 2012December’s Must Have box arrived today, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! Considering how little I’ve been writing lately, it’s the least I can do – timely PopSugar Must Have updates! I received an email two days ago with the tracking info, and it arrived today!

There were no extras this month, but it seems to be a pretty solid box. Thoughts?

Must Have – December 2012

PopSugar Must Have Box - December 2012

Must Have Home * Bodum Bistro Mugs
Must Have Fashion * Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit * Rent the Runway discount
Must Have Tech * GoSwype
Must Have Beauty * Jaboneria Marianella Soap
Must Have Food * Tea Forte * Bogdon’s Peppermint Poles

Love the tea and mugs to drink it in! I have sampled Tea Forte before and love the cute pyramid shaped tea bags. This particular sampler box comes with ten different tea bags of black, green, white and herbal teas. I’ve read reviews of the Bodum Bistro Mugs, which talk about how delicate they are, so I hope they don’t break after a few uses!

The Minimergency Kit from Pinch Provisions is a cute idea – fashion and beauty emergencies won’t ever stop you! Definitely something to keep in the car just in case. It also seems like a perfect stocking stuffer! The pamphlet that came with the Must Have box mentioned 52 solutions in this pouch, but the one I received only really has 17. After perusing their website, it looks like the refill for this kit is the one with 52 items! Typo? Or perhaps I was sent the smaller pouch?

Other fun items in the box: soap and Rent the Runway gift card!

Just as I told myself that I wouldn’t be renting any dresses for awhile, they suck me back in with this gift card. It’s $30 off through March, so I’ll have to see if there are any social functions coming up that I’ll want to rent a dress for.

The Jaboneria Marianella soap in my Must Have box was the Rejuvenating Face and Body Bar made with argan oil, oatmeal, shea butter, honey and vanilla bean. There are some boxes that have the Antioxidant Moisturizing Face and Body Milk Bar, which is made of goat milk and cocoa butter. Can’t wait to try it since I do love bar soaps!

  • I love these posts of yours. I’m too frugal to buy for myself so I live vicariously.

    • :-) glad you are enjoying these, maybe one day you will be able to buy ALL the boxes. lol

  • I love your pictures and reviews of these boxes. I wish we had them in Canada.

    • Thanks! Time to move! j/k – well, hopefully one day they decide to ship farther.

  • I have to say, I was a little disappointed in this month’s box. The soap smells amazing, & my boyfriend likes the mugs, but I already have a Minimergency Kit (& never use it), I have no reason to use Rent the Runway (& they have very few dresses in my size), & I have tonnnns of tea already. My love of last month’s box may have precipitated some natural disappointment in this months, but overall, this one just didn’t do much for me.

    Can’t please everyone every month, though, right? Looking forward to next month’s. :)

    • Yea, I think it’d be impossible to make EVERYONE happy. Still, it’s been fun seeing what’s in the boxes! I probably won’t be using the Minimergency Kit either. I plan on sticking it in a stocking or gifting it later. :-)

  • This was my first box and I’m pretty pleased. I love the mugs and the tea and it’s all pretty nifty. I think I’ve definitely been more enamored with what I’ve seen in previous boxes and it just figures that the box I get would not be my favorite, but I’m hoping next month might be a bit more on the me side.

    • I hope it only gets better! :)

    I’ve been wanting to subscribe to a box service like this, I’ve seen so many fun ones lately, but being a tea lover, I’m especially loving the Bodum mugs and Tea Forte sampler, sweet! enjoy

    I love the tea and the mugs! Since I don’t have any formal events coming up, I’m holding a giveaway for my Rent the Runway credit :)
