I swear my Jennifer Love Hewitt Fancy Box isn’t super late—it always arrives at the very end of June/beginning of July so I’m still on track for this one.
I had received an email from Fancy, confirming my tshirt size for this box and I was concerned since the last time I received that kind of email I ended up with a hideous “Fancy” Shirt. (You can check out that disaster here).
Well, I guess it’s not a Fancy sub if there’s not some strange mystery involved, because I didn’t get a t-shirt in my box after all. What did I get? Let’s see.
Burger Coasters (Fancy Retail: $5.00)
Description: “Keep your icy drinks from melting all over your tables this summer with these fun Burger Coasters!”
I have plenty of coasters and these aren’t quite my taste, but they are fun and I think that I can add them to some other cooking/food/hostess type gifts.
Sketch Pot Trivet (Fancy Retail: $19.00)
Description: “June is all about being outdoors and grilling with friends – this Sketch Trivet wil definitely come in handy.”
It’s looking like our theme is hosting and just like the coasters, I have a trivet already. This is cute though and just like the coasters I can use it for a gift.
Calf & Half Creamer Pitcher: (Fancy Retail: $24.00)
Description: “Enjoy your morning coffee even more with this quirky creamer on the table”.
Do I have a little creamer pitcher? Yes. Do I have one this whimsical? No. I think this pitcher is so adorable and it’s quite a cute gift. I’m not sure if I’ll end up keeping it (since I do have something for this purpose) or give it as a gift.
Fondue Set (Fancy Retail: $30.00)
Description: “Whether you prefer cheese or chocolate, nothing can beat fondue on a cool summer night with friends.”
This is my favorite item in the box since it’s the one thing I don’t already own. I don’t have a fondue set and I’ve recently started a low carb diet, so I can use this to try out some cheese fondue recipes. The bright orange color on this is fun (although I wish it had been red).
Let’s start with the positives. I like that this box had a cohesive theme (Outdoor/BBQ entertaining) and all the items coordinated together. The downside is that when I did the math, the value of this box was only $78.00 (and we are promised $80+ per box).
I ended up paying only $25.95 because I returned a duplicate item from my April original Fancy box and got $20.00 in credit. At the reduced price I’m fine with this box, but I would have been upset if I’d paid full price. (Although technically I did since the $20 was a refund).
I think the items in here were fun, but the box probably should have included at least one more product to bring the value up. I think the fun, whimsical aspect of the contents ties into the type of aesthetic I expect in a JLove Fancy box, so that’s also a point in the plus column.
What did you think of this box? Would you have enjoyed these items, or is it all stuff you already own?
