Fancy Box: May Review

I have to admit, I wasn’t as impressed with my Fancy Box this month as I have been with previous ones. But I have to remind myself that that’s the beauty of monthly subscription boxes. You never quite know what you’re going to get, you just have to trust the judgement of the curators (and refer to boxes of the past) to make the decision of whether to subscribe or not.

Milo iPhone Stand
I was really excited to find this iPhone Stand ($15) in my box – I’ve been on the lookout for one to keep at my desk. Whether you have your phone sitting horizontally or vertically, this contraption fits your iPhone perfectly. Its only been a few days but I’m already loving this tech accessory!

Fancy Stainless Steel Water Bottle
As much as I love the look and feel of the Fancy Stainless Steel Water Bottle ($18) it’s not something I’d really use (something about drinking out of this type of bottle weirds me out for some reason). That said, it’s BPA-free, dishwasher safe and holds both hot and cold liquids, which is great if you’re looking at it from a safe and user-friendly perspective.

Mint TKO Watch
This Mint TKO Watch ($125) was by far the most valuable item in May’s Fancy Box. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of gold jewelry and this watch includes a lot of that on the face of the watch and the interworking as well. I recently splurged on a Michael Kors watch as well – one I won’t be taking off often considering the crazy cost. This will definitely be a future gifted item.

Decanting Pourer
This is a great accessory for any winos out there. The Menu Decanting Pourer ($14) makes pouring wine easier and based on reviews I’ve read of the product, improves the quality of red wines. This isn’t an item I’d normally go out and purchase but I think I will get good use out of it, especially when I have friends over for wine nights.

May’s Fancy Box retailed out to $172, another great deal considering the $46.95 price (less if you subscribe with a coupon). There are currently no coupons available for Fancy so I’m cutting down on my usual 2 boxes from the company for June (I typically get the original Fancy plus one of the celeb-curated ones).

Are you a Fancy Box subscriber? What did you think of the contents of this month’s box?
