The theme of the Popsugar May 2017 Must Have subscription box is: gratitude, family, home, and memories. Every month has a different theme. The Popsuar Must have subscription box is delivered monthly and costs $39.95.

The first item is the Tocca Montauk Candle.  The candle’s scent is a mix of cucumber and salt air, it smells like heaven.  This candle is only 3oz, but is said to have a 30 hour burn time.  This candle is valued at $20. I was totally happy to see this item in my box, because I am totally addicted to scented candles.

The second item is the newest release from Lipstick Queen, it is called Morning Sunshine. This is a color changing lipstick and when applied it turns a very natural coral color and it super wearable.

It is majorly moisturizing and feels like you are applying lip balm.  This is going straight in my makeup bag. This product is valued at $25. They also included a coupon for 15% off. (Expires 6/30/2017)

The third product is a Nicely Noted Card Set.  Nicely Noted is a monthly letterpress card subscription service that sends out a variety of cards.  Each month the subscriber gets 3 cards and 3 stamps.  These cards are super cute and it is super nice to have cards on hand. This subscription box costs $20 dollars a month and this item is valued at $17.50.

They included a coupon for 50% off your first subscription.


The fourth item in the box is the Southern Culture Strawberry Muffin Mix.  I have to be really honest about this item. I made the muffins and they were really gross. They had no flavor and were kinda a weird texture. This item is valued at $8. God help the person that paid that much for this muffin mix.

The fifth item in this box is a Samantha Faye Inspirational Cuff.  This cuff was designed exclusively for Popsugar. It is inscribed with “Be Good. Do Good. Feel Good.” I own several Mantra Band bangles, so this was right up my alley.  I tend to wear mostly gold jewelry, so it was nice to get some silver to change things up.  The quality seems high. This item is valued at $60.

The sixth item in the box is a Swing Design Essex Frame.  This frame is 4×6 and can either hang on the wall or stand.  It has a silver frame and a white mat.  It is a really classic looking frame and I think it will look nice on my dresser. This item is valued at $16.

The total value of this box approximately $143. I was way happier with the May box then I have been with my past two boxes.  Minus the muffin mix, these are all items I am genuinely excited to own. The bangle, candle, and lipstick would all make great mothers day gifts.
