Breo Box Review Fall 2018
Breo Box is a seasonal subscription service for both men & women, delivering high-end and boutique brand name products. Every 3 months, you’ll receive a custom made hand-packed wooden box with items that revolve around everyday essentials, fitness/health, and tech, curated to fit the season. They kindly sent us this box for review.
There aren’t many boxes like Breo Box when it comes to the subscription box world. In fact, I often think Breo Box is in a category of its own. It’s a high-end subscription box for both men and women. It’s perfect for either which makes it versatile and giftable. When it comes to luxury subscription boxes this is definitely one of my faves.
When you sign up for a Breo Box subscription you have two options to choose from:
- Seasonal – $139 each season
- Annual – $525 for the year, receive a new box each season
Shipping is FREE for US customers and $35 for Canadian customers.
Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the Fall Box…..
Oniva X-Grill ($62)
The X-Grill is the folding portable charcoal BBQ grill with a slim line design. Compact and easy to assemble, the X-Grill provides a grilling surface of 203.5 sq. in. So why be confined to your backyard? With the X-Grill, you can take the BBQ wherever you want to go!
I love the idea of this but would have loved to see it in the Summer box. I won’t personally use it but my brother and his family camp all the time in the summer so this is the perfect item for them.
Gefu Digital Thermometer ($30)
This digital thermometer is handy and precise. On the display, the temperature is optionally indicated in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
A nice little item to complement the grill. Again, it’s not something I would personally use but it will make a great gift.
Corkcicle 16 oz. Waterman Edition Tumbler ($25)
Crafted from stainless steel with proprietary triple insulation, this vacuum-sealed wonder cup just doesn’t quit. It keeps your beverages cold for 9+ hours and hot for 3. Stays cold even longer with drinks containing ice — even out in the sun.
This is probably my favourite item in the box. I love travel mugs of any kind. I would fill all my cupboards with them if I could, and this is a really great brand.
Oniva Mini Bean Bag Throw ($45)
This Mini Bean Bag Throw game set by Oniva, a Picnic Time brand, features a small wood-based game board and two contrasting-colored sets of 4 bean bags. The board is double-sided with a different game design on each side and can be propped up for active play both indoors and outdoors. Play bean bag toss on one side and flip it over for tic-tac-toe. The four gray bean bags are marked with an ‘O’, while the black bean bags are marked with an ‘X’.
This is another item that is making me think of Summer. I can see my brother and his family taking this with them in their camper. I can also see our family using it in the summer during family dinners.
Flint Lint Roller & Refill ($11)
Our Flint Classics are finished with “soft touch” and feel very smooth when handled. Our Classic range effortlessly combines function and style with bright pop colors. Each Flint comes with a refillable 30 sheet Flint refill.
I have received this a couple times in other subscription boxes and it is my new favourite lint roller. I have a lint roller with me most of the time. I keep one in my travel bag, in my car and in my gym bag. This one is the perfect size, not too big.
Tooletries Koby Bag ($35)
Waterproof dopp kit made of 100% antibacterial silicone. Keep your toiletries clean and safe while traveling in its ample storage interior that fits full-sized items like shampoos and shave cream bottles. Finished with a top zipper + hanging chain for access in the shower.
Toiletry bags are a must when traveling so this will definitely come in handy. I will pass this one on to my husband, he will get a lot of use out of it during our road trips.
Little Red Bottle Emergency Stain Rescue ($9)
ESR is a rapid reaction stain remover made for where life & stains actually happen. It quickly and safely removes food stains like berries, fruit, tomatoes and ice-cream from clothes and fabrics. The ESR™ Professional Grade Formula works miracles on the general household stains that damage clothing, carpets and upholstery.
It might just be me but this item seems a little random to me. I’m not complaining though, I don’t have a stain remover spray in my laundry room and can definitely use one.
W&P Design Hydropod ($25)
This hydroponic set contains everything home gardeners need to experience the process of soil-free farming, including a frosted glass Hydropod and ingredients for growing edible herbs. Boasting a small footprint, the self-contained system is ideal for desktops, windowsills and other indoor spaces.
I have slowly been adding plants to our home decor. I love the look of them but I’m not the best when it comes to keeping them alive. Baby steps right? I think this will be the perfect addition to my office.
Breo Box Review Fall 2018 – Final Thoughts
The Fall Breo Box has a total retail value of $242 and we received 8 items. It has really great value and I love the design of the box this season. But, to be totally honest, I kind of think they missed the mark this time around. That is strictly a personal preference and some subscribers will probably love the Fall box but for me personally, it has more of a Summer vibe and I was really hoping for some Fall worthy products. The items we received are perfect for Summer camping, which is something my brother and his family do all the time so I might hold on to the box and gift it to them in the Spring, prior to camping season. For me personally, there’s not really anything I am overly excited about. But…..that doesn’t mean I’ve lost my love for this subscription. I have been a huge fan of Breo Box since day one, and just because this season’s box doesn’t appeal to me doesn’t mean I love this box any less. I’ve got high hopes for the Winter box and am already looking forward to receiving it.
Breo Box is a curated experience of the coolest stuff you never knew you needed. Tech gadgets, home goods, fitness and more, all products to enhance your lifestyle.
