This was an okay box. The information sheet on L.A. was good but the rest of the items were just so so. I'm not sure if the items in the box are really worth the price of the monthly charge.

I was really looking forward to receiving my box, unboxed and just felt meh. Nothing stood out to me as exciting or unique. It looked very professional, it just isn't the box for me

Fun Idea but Could be Better

It was a fun box but wish there was more ability to customize items. I’m going to say this box was more geared to the feminine side, so you might want to keep that in mind if the receiver is a guy. The quality of the items was okay. They craftsmanship could’ve been better.

As much as I love the idea of this box, the items are NOT worth the price!
For Kentucky we got a deck of cards, a bar of soap, a tablespoon of mint sugar, three pieces of candy, and a candle. Really?! Oh! And a soap holder made from cheap wood.
I’m sorry, I wanted to LOVE this box and look forward to receiving it each month. I am so disappointed.

Received a six month gift subscription. First box was great. Each subsequent was less and less good. Too many paper product type gifts. Cheap touristy items, re: Orlando FL, has been most disappointing so far. Portland, Maine box was best. Would not give as a gift subscription.

We are so sorry you were not happy with our choices of locally made products in the featured cities of your recent boxes. We are actually very careful not to have touristy items in our boxes preferring to feature items made by local artisans and small businesses. In the case of Orlando, because it is such a tourist destination, we chose a candy that a tourist typically brings home from Florida. In our contents insert, we explained that it is a recognizable product, but it was actually made locally and the makers had an interesting back story we thought our customers would appreciate. We are so happy you enjoyed Portland, Maine. Just like the cities, the boxes featuring Portland and Orlando...
