You probably already know of Fancy’s cool subscription box where each month you get a box full of gadgets based on your interest, for $39 you get over $80+ worth of stuff. However, not all people are ready to commit to a monthly subscription (although you’re free to cancel anytime), so Fancy now offers a new option for anyone who wants to reward themselves with a box without the recurring bill, and that’d be the Fancy Mystery Box which starts at only $10!
Fancy has sent me a Mystery Box for this review, so let’s have a look…
The Fancy Mystery Box is a great option for anyone looking for a surprise box at any time they want, instead of a monthly box. The price for the Mystery Box stars at $10 for a small box, $20 for a medium and $40 for a large. The Mystery Box cannot be customized by Interest like the Fancy subscription box, however, you can choose from a Men’s or Women’s box. The box I received was a $20 Medium box for Men. It included the following items:
Butcher’s Kitchen Apron ($35): This is my favorite item in the box. The illustrations are cool, very nicely printed and the apron feels of great quality.
Diablo III: Book of Cain ($22) and Diablo III: Book of Tyrael ($28): I am not a gamer at all, so these books are of no interest to me. But I can see how any fan of the game would be totally excited about them. Both are hardcovers that make a great collectors item for a fan.
The 4th item in the box is a Sons of a Sailor rope bracelet which I can’t seem to find on their website or Fancy’s. Based of the price of their available bracelets, I would give it a value of $15 to $20.
Without including the price of the bracelet which I’m not sure of, this $20 box includes items valued at $85+, which is an amazing deal for sure! But since it’s a mystery box, what you receive will either be a hit or miss. Personally, out of this box, I only like the apron and I’ll be giving out the rest as gifts, which is not bad at all, you could be saving a lot on gift expenses too!
Even though I’m not %100 impressed with the box I received, I would still consider buying a Fancy Mystery Box. For $10, $20 or $40, you’ll be receiving a lot more than what you paid for, so value wise, it’s great. But like I’ve already mentioned, the items might be a hit or miss, so if you’d like to receive items that are more specific to your interest, I’d recommend the Fancy Subscription Box ($39), you can cancel before you’re charged for the next month or you can keep your subscription if you like it.
