I discovered the Fancy.com website due to my new-found obsession with signing up for monthly “boxes” filled with surprise goodies… delivered right to my doorstep! This particular site has celebrity curated boxes!! That means the items are hand-picked by the celebrities and each box promises to contain $80.00+ worth of goods. I chose the Jennifer Love Hewitt box, from a line-up of celebs that include Snoop Dogg, Kelly Rowland, Nicky Hilton, and Coco Rocha to name a few.
Total paid: $49.68, ($39.00 + $7.95 shipping + $2.73 tax)
Upon purchase, you are signed up for the monthly service that auto-bills your credit card on file. (You can cancel at any time, by managing your fancy box subscription in your online account.)
I was so excited when i came home from work & saw my first fancy box with the signature popsicle on the side,… but was less than thrilled when i opened it up 😦
Inside, was the following:
- Burger Coasters, $6.86 on amazon (Eh… slightly amused, but I’d probably never use them. Set of 6, each of a different burger ingredient, lettuce, tomato, etc.)
- Sketch Pot Trivet, $18 on amazon (Silicon & looks like a 3-D pot if hung on a pot rack… but i don’t have one, so it’s weird looking otherwise… re-gift or sell on ebay)
- Calf & Half Creamer Pitcher, $10 on amazon (This is pretty cute… I will keep this for the “udder” novelty cuteness, even though I only see myself using this once a year max!)
- Cilio Fondue Set, $29.89 on amazon (If you had a fondue set, you know that it’s a pain in the butt to wash & not worth taking up the storage space in your kitchen LOL… this will be a re-gift or ebay sale for sure!)
You are able to return ONLY one of the items in your box, but less shipping, so it’s not worth it to me. I’d rather just re-gift or sell on ebay what i don’t like.
The total retail on the items was not $80.00+ as promised… but rather $64.75 😦
I give this Fancy Box 1 paw.
