The theme of the November PopSugar Must Have subscription is
- Friends & Family
There are so many items for November that will make great gifts, whether you are self-gifting or have friends and family that would enjoy some. I certainly am getting my money’s worth with this PopSugar Must Have box.
For my sister: DEEPA GURNANI Katie Crystal Headband ($56).
Since this is a gift it’s still in the package. As much as I love this beautiful headband I rarely wear them but my sister does and this will be gorgeous on her. She often has to work early and needs a way to beautify her hair quickly and this stunning crystal headband will make a great gift for her. This is handcrafted in India and the detailing is perfect. The backside is made of material that will help keep it from slipping around.
For my older son: WEST EMORY BINGO SET ($20)
This is the most elegant Bingo set I’ve ever seen. The cards are quite big and on heavy cardstock and the bingo markers are on silver cardstock. Everything about this particular game speaks adult and speaks quality. My son and his wife are big entertainers and always have people over. Games are a big part of their fun (especially once the wine and beer start flowing) and this coffee table game will be a big hit with him.
For my other son: TERRAPIN RIDGE FARMS Pecan Honey Mustard ($6)
This is my son who does all the cooking for his family. While my grandchildren wouldn’t go near anything made with this I know that this will be a great addition to his cooking repertoire. Since this is fat free (and gluten free) and that’s his number one criteria, I think he’ll enjoy this as part of his holiday gift.
For my sister-in-law: TARTE COSMETICS BEAUTY & THE BOX EYE SHADOW in Apple of My Eye ($22)
This new eyeshadow palette is part of a collection that Tarte is coming out with. My SIL is always amazed at the amount of makeup I have so it’s time to share. With these beautiful neutral shades from a cruelty free company this will definitely become the apple of her eyes.
For me: GRAMR GRATITUDE CO. Exclusive Thanksgiving Postcard Pack ($10)
This is a set of 5 large postcards with a Thanksgiving theme although several can be used any time. I’ve already used one to include in a gift and have plans for a second. These are really well made and unlike a souvenir postcard. What’s really a positive about buying from Gramr Gratitude is their giving back policy.
Hostess gift (or maybe just for me) CAPRI BLUE MERCURY JEWEL BOX in Rain ($18.95)
This was the teaser for the November box. The candle from Capri Blue Candles is made from handblown recycled glass. Each box will be slightly different depending on the manufacturing of the glass. The top is made of recycled wood making this quite unusual.
I’m not a candle person but I’m oddly drawn to this. It smells mild and it becomes a keepsake box once you’ve burned the candle. Because of the imperfections of it being handmade I’m not sure if my holiday hostess will think I dragged this out of a closet for regifting which is why I’m on the fence about gifting this. But whoever ends up with it will surely enjoy it.
I had decided to give myself three months with PopSugar Must Have before deciding whether or not to continue. With a value of $133 for my $39.95 investment I think I came out ahead of the game so December’s box will be mine too. I love surprises and as long as they are items I can use or gift then it’s a fun box to get in the mail. Have you considered buying this subscription? Do you think it’s worth the money? — Marcia
