If it’s tropical thing you can basically assume I’m going to love it. It’s been a while since I’ve received an Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box* so I could not wait to rip this box open. I’ve generally really enjoyed past surprise boxes because there’s just something about exclusive items you can’t get on the site. Exclusivity is basically death to my bank account.
If you’re new to the surprise box, they’re released every quarter for $35 (plus tax) and contain over $65 in exclusive and sneak peek products. The themes usually stay pretty close to whatever season the box is for. I’ve reviewed a few other boxes in the past if you want to check out those posts.
My favorite items from this box are the wristlet, palm paper clips, chase the sun cover, and asterisk pen. I’ve already used the wristlet as a pouch for my carry-on liquids since it’s see-through and can go through security.
The pocket sized traveler’s notebook insert is interesting, but I’m more curious to see if they come out with a line of smaller traveler’s notebooks since this particular insert is exclusive to the box. Otherwise this little guy is basically pointless. The larger insert is a summer petite planner where you can write down summer plans and document memories. I have my own style of documenting memories that I’m a fan of more, so this will likely be passed along to a friend.
Overall I think this box is worth the $35 price tag since a lot of the exclusive items I really enjoy. It’s when the exclusive items are meh that it doesn’t really seem worth it since you’ll be able to get the sneak peek items from the box on the website in a few weeks. I love seeing the company branch out into new types of products like the paperclips and pens. Who knows what they’ll come up with next…
What do you think of this seasonal surprise box? Did you snag one? What past box is your favorite?
