Mystery Box Shop Review and Giveaway

Surprises are the best, and my favorite! I love getting a package for my birthday or the holidays and having no idea what's in it. I enjoy the suspense and picturing what the contents are. So much of life is planned that it's truly a joy to receive a surprise once in a while.



Mystery Box Shop is such a fun and unique concept. They sell mystery boxes in a range of different sizes that you can buy. Each box contains a certain amount of guaranteed items. The bigger the box, the more items inside. The contents are acquired from estates, storage units and salvage freight. What's inside each box is guaranteed to be worth more than you pay. What the best part of the box is that you can pick one meant for a man, woman, girl, or boy. With this choice you'll be sure that you won't receive army figurines meant for a 6 year old boy when you're a 50 year old woman. Mystery Box Shop donate a portion of their sales to the American Cancer Society, which I think is fantastic.

I received a mystery box in the mail on Saturday. I was very excited when the mailman delivered it. It had some weight to it and I could't wait to open it! What could be inside? A candle? DVD's? Maybe jewelry? Who knows! I found the scissors and got to work opening the box.

This is what I saw when the box was opened:


I received the 4th season of Alfred Hitchcock presents on DVD, warm fuzzy socks, a ceramic pumpkin, a piece of jade, a book, a paint your own bank, Star Trek trading cards, solar dancing daisies, and a collectible coin. Not pictured is a shark tooth and some other coins. I also received a tiny vial with pieces of a Nantan meteorite inside! The paper inside provided some history of the meterorite.

As you can see, I received a nice collection of items. I had a lot of fun going through each item as I went through the box. My favorite item is probably the meteorite, that's very cool. I like holding a piece of history in my hands! The book looks interesting and I will definitely be reading it in the next few weeks. I am also interested in the Alfred Hitchcock DVD, I love a good mystery! My boyfriend was interested in the Star Trek cards. The solar dancing daisies are cute and I could put them on a windowsill. The socks are very warm and cozy and perfect for the upcoming fall weather. I know a little girl who would love the paint your own bank too. I'm not sure what I will do with the jade and collectible coins, might just be fun to hold on to them. The ceramic pumpkin is perfect for displaying this fall.

All in all, I enjoyed my mystery box. This would be perfect for buying for a friend or relative for Christmas or their birthday. The best part is they will have no idea what's inside, and neither will you. Make sure you ask them what they received!
