Birchbox Limited Edition Box – From The Garden

on April 23, 2013

Once in a while Birchbox puts out a Limited Edition Box.
I decided to give this one a try.

Limited Edition Theme: From The Garden

Bigger Box!

The packaging is very giftable!

First look at the goods.
Let’s break them down.

Cute notecards that offer a list of the items included in the box
along with helpful hints.

Birchbox Shopping List
$6.00

This is cute but WAY over priced for what it is.
I get cute shopping lists with hula dancers and a magnetic back  to put
on the fridge for half the cost of this.

Tocca Crema da Mono Luxe in Bianca
$20.00 for 4 oz

I love Tocca – just not this scent.
Scent is very personal – and based on your personal chemistry.
I wish Birchbox gave the option to choose a scent for these boxes so there is more value.
This will be gifted to someone else or sold on eBay.

Gift Republic’s Grow Me Mini Herb – Basil
$6.00

I saw these at Target.  They were larger and for the same price.

Core Bamboo Radish Print Utility Knife
$13.99

This makes me smile.  It is super cute!
This will come in handy!

LAFCO Little Luxuries Candle Tin in Mint
$20.00

This smells like REAL mint – not the fakey crap you usually get.
But just like fresh from the garden mint – love it!
And how cute is it they include a box of matches that fit in the lid??
This is perfect for a romantic getaway weekend 🙂

Sarabeth’s Legendary Spreadable Fruit
Peach Apricot and Strawberry Raspberry
$8.50 for 9 oz – Sample Value $2.83

Haven’t tried these yet.
I plan on using them when I take our son to the playground.
We do little picnics for lunch.

L’Occitane La Collection de Grasse in Jasmin & Bergamote
$75 for 75 ml – Sample Value $7.50

Wow!  I like bergamot (think Earl Grey tea – it’s the key ingredient) and LOVE jasmine.
However, NOT together in this combination.
This is very strong.
Think grandma who has lost her sense of smell strong!!

BAGGU Market Shopping Bag in Hot Pink
$9.00

These bags are always handy!
Plus, I love to wrap gifts with these so there is no paper waste and a bonus gift.
Just put the present inside – tie the handles – add some ribbon.
You will get lots of compliments 🙂

Total Value for Limited Edition Birchbox – $85.32
Price paid – $32.00

Is this worth the price?
On paper – YES.
Based on what will be used – which is where the real value is – MAYBE.
Many of these items will be re-gifted or sold on eBay.
I figure the value of the items I will use personally is $42.82 – so I still come out ahead.

  1. When I first saw this, I thought it was such a cool idea, but just like you as I scrolled through the items, they just didn’t do very well, too many personal scent things in my opinion, too bad though, it was such a great idea!
