PopSugar Must Have Box Review December 2013

I was so surprised to find my PopSugar Must Have December box waiting outside my door today - since I just got my shipping email, I thought it'd be another week before I get it. I already looked at the spoilers and frankly, was not super excited. However, it's always so much better to see things in person and this box turned better than expected. Here is a snapshot of everything the box included:

I am always thrilled to see all the goodies when I open the box. The information card described the December box as "the wish list you never knew you needed." Very appropriate, I thought, at the end of all the unwrapping. Here are the details:

Must Have Fashion:
Lulu Frost for PopSugar Bracelet ($110)
I've never heard of Lulu Frost before and was not sure about this bracelet from the spoiler pictures. However, I actually like this bracelet - a lot. It's an interesting combination of vintage-y and sparkly - very sparkly. I'll happily wear it, and it can be stacked with some of my leather Gorjana bracelets.

Must Have Home:
Mixt Studio Holiday Gifting Paper ($9)
I can always use more wrapping paper around the holidays, so this is a welcome gift. This paper is elegant and unique.

Govino Go Anywhere Flutes ($12.95)
I've heard raving reviews about these and am happy to have  received them. We do go to picnics so these will come in handy. 

Must Have Beauty:
Modelco Fibre Lashextend Black Mascara ($20)
I'm always happy to receive mascara in my subs - especially new brands and this one is new to me. It promises lump-free lashes and has added lash fibres. Interested to try it out. Right now, Buxom is my go-to everyday mascara.

NCLA Peppermint Lane Nail Wraps ($16)
I've never used nail wraps and frankly, I'm not sure if I'm that intrigued to try these. They'll probably go in my gift pile - they definitely look cute and season-appropriate.

Must Have Food:
CC Made Caramel Corn ($4)
I received the Pistachio Caramel variety. I love regular popcorn and am not a huge fan of caramel one - maybe occasionally. I will use this one though as a part of a hostess gift for one of our upcoming visits.

Chirardelli Squares Chocolates (~$12)
Two packages were included in the box - the Milk & Caramel ones and the Holiday Assortment. I am a fan of dark chocolate and do buy Ghirardelli dark chocolate varieties, so I will probably include these in gifts to some friends.

My verdict: Overall, I am more pleased with my Must Have box than I expected to be. The fact that I liked the bracelet so much plays a big part in that. Also, I love the go anywhere flutes and the wrapping paper, and I'm excited to try the mascara. The total value of the box comes to a little over $170 - a high value box and definitely worth the $40 price tag (to me, that is). I've been a PopSugar Must Have subscriber for over an year, and I think I'll stick with the sub for now.
