Every year PopSugar Must Have Box offers a special holiday box for him and her in addition to their regular monthly boxes. The price of the holiday special edition box is $100 with shipping included.

PopSugar Must Have Limited Women's Winter Box 2017

 Contents of the PopSugar Special Edition Winter Box for Her 2017

Cluse La Boheme Rose Gold Watch. Value = $99.00

Tribe Alive Luxe Brass Handle Handbag. Value = $168.00

Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Glowing Hydration Body Oil. Value = $44.00

Odeme Melamine Dessert Plates. Value = $27.00

Pehr Chambray Fringe Napkins. Value = $40.00

Vosges Haut-Chocolate Holiday Cracker. Value = $10.00

Esteé Lauder Modern Muse Parfum Rollerball. Value = $26.00

The total value of this winter men's box is $414.00. I really love the Tribe Alive bag that was included in this box. I'm also a fan of the melamine plates even though I have a ton of plates right now. The watch is really nice but I'm not really a watch person and if I do become a watch person I'm getting an apple watch. The cloth napkins will go nicely the silver placemats from the Neiman Marcus box and the table runner from a box several months ago. 

Verdict: I'm happy with my $100 investment in this box.

December Robb Vices Box

Robb Vices is a monthly subscription box focused on exceptional products, food, accessories, etc. Each box is curated and comes with a booklet that tells the story of the items in the box. This box is for those who enjoy the finer things and appreciate the history or story behind it. I only say that because this box is not inexpensive. The price is $89.95 per month plus shipping. I subscribe to the Robb Report magazine and very much enjoy reading it. If you subscribe to the magazine they offer a discount on the box. I researched previous boxes and liked what I saw so I subscribed.

Price: $89.95 per month plus shipping w/discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.

The Good:

Products: The products are high end, artisan and great quality. 

Information: The include booklet is a wealth of information on the products. 

Referral Program: Refer 3 friends and get a free box. 

Alcohol: Sometimes they include alcohol which I'm a big fan of. 

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is high for a monthly box of surprise items.

Auto-Renew. I don't care much for auto-renew especially on a box with a high price tag. 


December Robb Vices box

Georg Jensen Indulgence Champagne Sabre. Value = $200.00

Robb Vices Reserve Sparkling Wine. Value = $39.95

The House of Gabriel Boudier Créme de Cassis Dijon. Value = $30.00

The total value of this box is about $269.95. This box includes a champagne sabre that screams ridiculously indulgent! This is something I would never buy myself but I'm super happy to own one. We are going be be remodeling our game room/bar and I'm going to proudly display this and offer it up for all the champagne openings. I'm going to save this bottle of sparkling for Christmas and break out my new sabre. 


Verdict: This Robb Vices box was super fun and indulgent.

December Love with Food - tasting box

Love with Food is a monthly subscription box filled with food. They offer a tasting size box and a deluxe size box. I had been a subscriber to the deluxe size box but the values were consistently low so I canceled that subscription. The tasting box is $9.99 a month and contains about 8 snacks in the box. 

Price: $9.99 a month with a discount for 6 and 12 month plans. No option to skip. 

This subscription is only available in the US and ships from Santa Clara, California. 

The good:

Variety: You get a lot of variety in each box. 

Discounts: You can earn points for discounts off future full size product purchases by submitting reviews on their website or referring new members. 

The not so good:

I really can't think of anything I don't like about this box.

Love with Food Christine Ha tasting box

Contents of Love with Food tasting box. 

The Daily Crave Veggie Chips.

Wholesome Organic Peppermint Candy Cane.


Dolcetto Chocolate Wafer Rolls.


Nothing but the Fruit Mixed Berry Real Fruit Bites. 

Nothing but the Fruit Strawberry Real Fruit Bites. 


Blue Diamond Hint of Sea Salt Nut Thins. 

Bakery on Main Cranberry Almond Maple Granola Snack.

Munk Pack Coconut Chocolate Macadamia Protein Cookie.


I didn't do a breakdown of this box. If you look at my previous reviews they usually come in at the $8-$10 range. This box is just a great box if you like snacks and trying new snacks. I've discovered quite a few things that we now purchase because of these boxes. Also LWF makes it easy because you can order direct from their website. The Purell was a little something different this month, meaning not a food item. I didn't mind it though since I travel a lot of take disinfectant with me. 


Verdict:  Love with Food box always has yummy items in it.
