In the middle of a busy week just as I was leaving to catch a flight, arriving at my door was my Popsugar December Must-Have Box ($39.95/ code DECSELECT gives you $10 off a 3-month subscription till 1/24). I have friends who are content to go looking for the coolest things to bring home, but most of my shopping time is (ahem) pretty much devoted to makeup. It is always fun to see what kinds of things the geniuses at Popsugar have found to delight us.
This December’s box was holiday themed. After opening this well-stuffed box of goodies, our family friend enjoyed picking out the Ghiradelli chocolate back home to his family. Because both Popsugar and Ghiradelli are San Franciscan natives, we thought playing off of the geographic connection between them was a cute idea. He also picked up the CC Made caramel crunch, hand-baked using organic corn and nuts.
These NCLA Peppermint Lane nail wraps (typically $18) are self-adhensive, and look party ready and fun.
Popping a new Model Co. Fibre Lash Extend (typically around $24) black mascara and a $10 gift card warmed our makeup-loving hearts. You can’t see it in the picture, but the mascara tube has a built in mirror on the side.
Mixt Studio’s Holiday Gifting set (typically $9) includes three sheets of besoke paper made from recycled materials, and well appreciated this time of year.
One of my favorite items was this adorable crystal charm bracelet, designed by Lulu Frost (custom piece/price unavailable). This nicely-weighted, substantial piece adds a touch of sparkle (and who doesn’t love a touch of sparkle?). Click the image above to enlarge.
Finally, to ring in the New Year, Popsugar included this set of four genius Govino Go Anywhere Flutes ($12.95). Their lightweight plastic design are re-washable and re-usable. Don’t toss these after use, they are substantial enough for your next on-the-go champagne picnic. Their size was certainly large enough for a standard serving of bubbly goodness, and their thumb grip made holding the glass easy despite the lack of a stem. Throw in your bag for an on-the-go celebration.
Overall, the Popsugar December Must-Have Box included some items that I would never have found on my own that are imaginative and fun. If you are interested, Popsugar is offering a $10 off a 3-month subscription with the code DECSELECT now through January 12, 2014.
This box was sent to Cafe Makeup without charge for consideration for review.
