I received for review,  this cute, soon to be, demo subscription box from The Fab Box. The above picture is their logo from their blog. Starting in September, this will be a full-fledged subscription box.  Every month the box will be curated with a particular theme. It will include 5-7 items and one personalized handmade item from Lizz ,the owner and curator.  The value range of the boxes will be between 30-50 dollars and the theme will be announced two weeks prior on Instagram. This lets you know if you would like to gift this particular box or try it on a one time basis.  If you want to gift the box, you simply fill out the form on the website before the first of the month, in order to be able to get that person’s item made just for them.

It is easy to cancel, on their website and if you are unhappy with your box, you can ask for a refund. This will be done on an individual basis. Here are the prices:

Single Box: 22.00 + 5.95 US Shipping

Monthly: 22.00 + free US Shipping

Let’s look at the Demo Box I received. The theme was Summer BBQ. Here are the contents of the box all laid out. It arrived in a cardboard box with tons of tissue paper. The retail on this demo box was 18.00.

So many cute things, let’s start with the cupcake holders. I really need to use these soon. Strawberry cupcakes with raspberries on top sounds good. Perfect little checkerboard pattern that fits the theme to a T. These are valued at 5.00.

The next item was this pale yellow vegan leather notebook, which I swear smells like leather to me. It comes with lined and solid pages. It retails for 8.00.

These ice cream cone pens are so very cute. I have one sitting on my desk and it makes me smile. The little attached jewels are precious. Retail for the two pens is 8.00.

This adorable little hamburger pencil sharpener with two gummie erasers really added to the theme of the box. I winded up gifting this one to a little one who is starting kindergarten. Retail: 7.00
